Pucker up, buttercup: the YSL lipstick maker, formally known as Rouge Sur Mesure Custom Lip Color Creator, will allow you to be your own beauty mogul. 

The best lipstick is a highly debatable and subjective topic, but now thanks to this handy makeup device, you'll be able to customize the perfect bespoke shade—one that's not available on shelves. 

In true 21st-century fashion, the gadget has become one of the most popular trending hashtags on TikTok. Catch many a video dedicated to the tool in #YSLBeauty, which has garnered over 215 million views. (C'mon—you know you're curious!)

If your latest trip to Sephora, though satisfying, left you wanting more, perhaps it's time to take your cosmetics destiny into your own hands?



What is the YSL Lipstick Maker?

So, how does this bad boy work? With the help of PERSO technology, the nifty machine offers cartridges in four colors: nude, red, pink and orange. Connect your Rouge Sur Mesure device to the YSL Rouge Sur Mesure app, play around with colors and then once you've uncovered what you like, the hue will be calibrated in a creamy, velvety finish.

Essentially, this is the lipstick to end all lipstick purchases. From now on, you are responsible for the color you want. It's makeup making from the future!
