YSL Gloss Pur - #2 - Pure Rose


Soooo on my way back from Istanbul, I had to stop by the amazing Duty Free Shop! I really wanted to pick up Chanel's Bronze Universel and to my surprise they didn't have it?! After hearing the bad news, I walked around to see if anything else will attract my attention. Honestly, I couldn't find a single thing I wanted from Chanel, Dior, Lancome...nothing. Then I ended up at the YSL counter and looked through the beautiful Rouge Voluptes, I initially picked up #2 & #7 but then put them back. While they were both gorgeous, I just didn't need 2 more lipsticks! What I need more of are lip glosses, I want to love them as much as everyone else lol So that's why I went for one!


Just like all other YSL lip products, Gloss Pur also comes in the classic and very luxurious gold packaging. 


I adore the little mirror that is on top of the Rouge Voluptes, so I was totally expecting to see one on my Rouge Pur as well. Unfortunately no mirror here. But the packaging is still glam and sleek at the same time. I love the squared bottle and the black and red YSL logo right on the front of the cap.


This shade is called Pure Rose. I would describe the color as a milky cotton candy-ish pink with a hint of coral/orange to it. There are a total of 12 shades in the Gloss Pur line. Pure Coral is definitely on my list!


For the most part, I prefer doe-foot applicators when it comes to lip glosses. Rouge Pur comes with a brush wand which is ok. Regardless, the fresh mango-scented gloss just glides on lips with ease. I am truly amazed by its consistency! It's not sticky at all, and leaves lips with a glossy, high shine sheen! I was informed that there is aloe vera involved in the formulation which is a bonus as aloe vera is known to smooth and soften skin while providing essential moisture. I think the color pay off is decent but it's definitely not the same color you see in the tube. Of course that depends on the pigmentation of your lips as well. I don't think it is the longest wearing lip gloss in the world but anyway I cannot think of a lip gloss that lasts for hours on lips, maybe I am not aware of it? On average it lasts about two hours or so on my lips, of course depending on your activities the length of staying power may slightly change.


I am very happy with my new lip gloss! I love the scent, the non-sticky finish, the color, everything! I believe it's one of those staple colors in every girl's collection since you can wear it practically anywhere! It comes with a not so pocket-friendly price tag; $30 for a .20oz tube. I did, however, buy it for $26 at Duty Free, score! :) It's not cheap but then again, it'll probably last me a long time since I only occasionally wear lip glosses.

Gloss Pur is available at yslbeautyus.com, Nordstrom and Sephora has few shades on their website.

Have you tried Gloss Pur? What are your favorite lip glosses?

  1. This one looks so pretty! I'm the opposite about lipgloss: I love it and have wayyy too many! That's a shame you couldn't get your hands on Bronze Universel but you definitely need to keep trying because you'll love it! While on the topic of expensive lipgloss, I actually have heard really good things about the Dior ones (not sure of the exact name) but I want one now!
