YSL Beauty X Zoe Kravitz Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick 144 Shoreditch Walk Review

*PR products- YSL very kindly sent me the lipstick

YSL Beauty X Zoe Kravitz Red Stories Limited Edition 2021 collection, has just released today. Zoe Kravitz is a YSL Beauty Makeup and Fragrance Ambassador.

Zoe Kravitz said about the collection “I wanted to bring everyone on a journey that would show the key places in my life”. From her childhood memories of living in Los Angeles to filming movies in London, spending time in Paris to her favourite habitat, New York, Zoe lets the cities that shapes and inspired her do the talking.

The collection has eight very different versions of red in the Rouge Pur Couture lipstick.


In this limited edition collection are eight lipsticks.

The London inspired shades- deep nudes with a red undertone for a statement look and an urban feel. The two shades are 143 London Sky- a dusky mahogany red and 144 Shoreditch Walk- a rich creamy chestnut red.

The Paris inspired shades- orange reds, steeped in intrigue and excitement. The two shades are 145 Lost in Marais- a burnt orange red and 146 Paris Stroll- a soft carmine red.

The NYC inspired shades- pure reds that take your look at the next level. The two shades are 147 Brooklyn baby- a classic chic red and 148 NYC Jungle- a red carpet ready cool red.

The LA inspired shades- burgundy red- modern, fun and fresh in true Hollywood style. The two shades are 149 Midnight LA- a bright burgundy red and 150 Topanga Sunset- a deep magenta red.

The lipstick case is silver and on the front of the case is YSL in silver glitter lettering. When you touch the YSL lettering, you can feel the glitter texture.  The bottom of the lipstick case is silver, with silver glitter and sparkles, which has a smooth finish over the top of it.

On the lipstick you have YSL embossed on.

I have the shade 144 Shoreditch Walk which is described as a rich creamy chestnut red, in a satin radiance finish. It is one of the London inspired shades.

I would describe this shade on me as a brown red shade. As I have a light skin tone, this is a vampy lip shade on me and I find it suits my light skin tone. I think this shade will suit medium and dark skin tones as well. With darker skin tones, this won’t be a vampy lip shade on them. With a dark shade like this, it’s one I would wear in the Autumn and Winter months.

I have one other YSL lipstick, which is also a Rouge Pur Couture in my collection and this new lipstick has the same scent as that one.

It has a lovely creamy formula, which just glides onto the lips. The satin radiance finish is beautiful and adds a lovely shine to the lips. It feels nourishing and comfortable to wear on the lips. I don’t find it clings to any dry skin patches.

I have found it lasts on me  for a few hours and then leaves a slight stain on the lips for a while afterwards.

This is available to buy exclusively at yslbeauty UK and Selfridges £30.

Leave me a comment below. Have you bought any of the lipsticks from this collection or plan to?
