YSL Private Carmine & Secret Rosewood Slim Glow Matte Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Private Carmine (204)

YSL Private Carmine (204) Slim Glow Matte Rouge Pur Couture LipstickYSL Private Carmine (204) Slim Glow Matte Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick ($39.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium-dark red with neutral-to-cool undertones and a cream finish with barely-there pearl. It had nearly opaque color coverage that adhered well to my lips with an even lay down of product that was forgiving of imperfections.

The consistency felt lightweight and thin with more of a velvety glide than traditional creaminess, though there was some shine still present initially. It stayed on nicely for over six hours and felt lightly hydrating while worn.

Formula Overview

$39.00/0.07 oz. – $557.14 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have a “luminous, glowing matte finish” and help to “smooth” and “moisturize” lips. It is silent on coverage, though promotional images by the brand show full coverage. It is also supposed to be “long-lasting” and “creamy.”

I can see what they mean by a “glowing” matte finish; it’s more of a modern matte–not as flat or as dry-looking as matte lipsticks from many years ago. Sometimes, it seems like brands are just afraid to use the term satin or semi-matte, though! They have a semi-matte finish–less shiny in person–with subtle pearl that looks less like shimmer in person and more of that “glowing” finish as described.

The texture was more velvety, so it didn’t feel as wet as a traditional lipstick, but it still glided readily across my lips. I found that it had a tendency to pill a little when swatched on my arm, but most shades did not have any issue like that when applied to my actual lips. This is rare, but I have had that happen where a product was clearly designed for lip skin over skin-skin!

They wore between five and seven hours, depending on the shade; deeper, richer shades (like a red) tended to last longer than lighter shades (like a peach or lighter brown). They were more on the non-drying to lightly hydrating side.

Secret Rosewood (205)

YSL Secret Rosewood (205) Slim Glow Matte Rouge Pur Couture LipstickYSL Secret Rosewood (205) Slim Glow Matte Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick ($39.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plummy brown with warmer undertones and barely-there gold pearl in a satin finish. The color payoff was semi-opaque in a single layer, which applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without tugging.

The lipstick had a thin, lightweight texture that had more of a velvety slip to it, though it had a bit of shine to it initially. This shade lasted well for five hours and felt lightly moisturizing over time.
