YSL Glossy Stain 27 Peche Cerra-Cola is one of the four new shades in the Glossy Stain line. But first off. I didn't see whole a lot of swatches the new shades online so I will get to that first. I apologize for out of focus camera picture!

Applicator and packaging is quite nice. It definitely allow precise application and spreads the product across the lips well. Picks up enough product too but I personally need to double dip.
The texture of the glossy stain is quite thick and little bit sticky. But due to this texture, this thing is tenacious in the glossy form. I'm talking few hours. Never seen a regular gloss to that. On me at least. After the gloss "wears off," it leaves an faint orange stain. It's not that strong and it eventually darkens on me. I find that the stain doesn't last more than 2 hours by itself on me with regular talking, eating. and drinking.
The stain swatch below is a bit lighter than the actual stain it leaves because I wiped it off too quickly and didn't wipe it off very well. x_x
And a lip swatch. It is freshly applied.

The thing about this color is that it doesn't show up on everyone. It's light and not uber pigmented. I tried it on my sister who has darker mauve/purple lips, and it did not show up at all. My lips are not that pigmented but I still need to do a couple layers to get it to look like the color it looks like in the swatches. It doesn't glob up though so that just means it will be used up a bit faster than other glossy stain.
Nevertheless, it's pretty and a long wearing product. I am not in love with it, and I could have done without it to be honest. I highly suggest you try it on before you get it. :)
Anyways wouldn't it be magical if someone came up with a stain that stains in a light peach color? A fain orange is best I've seen. I wonder if it's possible to stain something lips in a lighter color. Anyone know of anything like that?
