Yves Saint Laurent The Slim Glow Matte: A quick review

What it is: A collection of long-wear matte lipsticks from the French brand YSL in a slim, compact design.

Beauty bonus: The colour selection is on point — neutrals (without being boring) for days!

Beauty bummer: The diamond shape of the stick makes application a little awkward until you get a hang of it.

Overall: This lipstick updates the matte movement by adding in pearl shimmer for a little something extra. 

It almost has a stain-like consistency on lips it’s so smooth thanks to the formulation containing mallow flower extract. We found we could amp up the colour by applying with a heavy hand or get the soft blurred editorial effect by applying a little lighter and blending out. 

While we didn’t find it to be the most long wearing, we didn’t mind re-applying this comfortable formula.

Would recommend? Yes

Price: $50

Where to buy: Sephora, Holt Renfrew
