Hi! I received my second YSL Glossy Stain as a birthday present from my friend recently. Well, my first YSL Glossy Stain is also a birthday present from someone else, my sister. Heheh. I am falling in love with the glossy stains! If I ever get to see them in person, I think I will most likely end up with more shades.
While the first one I bought is a bright deep pink/red shade, this is a much more wearable pinky nude shade. I had to apply two coats of this, because it might look rather sheer and streaky on first coat.
It is shade which I would wear even if I don't have much makeup on, but I match this shade with a slightly smokey eye for this quick LOTD.

this is two coats of the glossy stain
You can see that with two coats, the color is true to what you can see in the tube, and it is also quite glossy.
I don't find these glossy stains sticky at all, and they have quite a decent lasting power.
I know the color isn't the most unique in my stash, but I enjoy the formula of these stains,
so that totally justified me getting more if I have the chance to.
I slapped on the eye colors after a day's work, so you are looking at 12 hours old foundation (I did powder my T-zone). So if I look a little worn or tired, you know why.
