YSL Rouge Pur Couture Vernis à Lèvres Rebel Nudes

Fact:  nude lipstick can be dodgy.  It can make you look washed-out/ill, or make your lips 'disappear'.  In general, we find it's not nearly as flattering as something with a hint of a tint, and we advise women to steer clear. Till now - because the shades in YSL Rouge Pur Couture Vernis à Lèvres Rebel Nudes are a safe choice for nude-ists.  (If you'll forgive the expression.)

This luscious gloss -with a revolutionary, precise-application brush (quite different to most) can be applied with a single coat for a fresh effect, or a second coat for a deep, sexy (and appropriately party-perfect) lip 'glaze'.  And there's a choice of eight nudes altogether - and not a cadaverous choice among them.

Matching nail varnishes are available, too.  And we're feeling naked lust, frankly.
