Create & customize your own lipstick shades with YSL’s Rouge Sur Mesure device

YSL’s groundbreaking lipstick creator has arrived in Canada and it is truly remarkable.

Named “Rouge Sur Mesure’, the one-of-a-kind device allows you to create and customize your own lipstick colours thanks to YSL’s colour expertise and cutting-edge PERSO technology. It’s as close as you can get to working with a cosmetic scientist inside a makeup laboratory. A complementary app helps guide you through the process of creating your own unique shades and looks.

The device uses packs of cartridge trios (in three colour families) packed with YSL’s creamy velvet lip formula for the possibility to customize over 1,000 shades. It even comes with a sleek lip compact so you can take your signature shades with you wherever you go.

Here’s how it works: First, pair your phone with the App, then choose your cartridges. Slot each one into any of the three holes and click into place. Next, create your colour, experimenting as much as you like by digitally trying it on, using the App. (Yes, you can become your own makeup chemist!) Finally, decide how much lip colour you’d like to make – enough to just test or to wear several times – by selecting your lip size, then clicking the Create button. Using the applicator brush, thoroughly blend the formula, and it’s ready to apply. (The non-porous device is easily cleaned and is designed to be hygienic. It even keeps track of expiry dates of the cartridges)

To get you started, you’ll find 1000 different colour recipes in the Shade Palette on the App. A Shade Match with recognition technology allows you to create a lipstick shade the perfectly matches any photo you take.

“Rouge Sur Mesure took more than five years to develop, with the work and input from dozens of beauty, technological and innovation experts, and features various technological feats, including a patented motor system, of which I’m particularly proud,” explains Guive Balooch, Global Vice President L’Oreal Technology Incubator. “This system is located at the top of the device, which moves and compresses the formula from the cartridges at the base of the machine in an upward motion to the dispensing tray above for clean application. It’s a totally unique feature.” He says the Shade Stylist (as part of the App) is a proprietary algorithm which combines the makeup and colour expertise of YSL makeup artists with AI technology developed by his team. It has more than 20 patents including several for the dispensing system.

YSL’s Rouge Sur Mesure is available in Canada at yslbeauty.ca It retails for $459. Here is the link to check it out.

    I love this device, it’s so clever and wonderful to be able to mix my own shades.

    Dave Lackie is an inspiration. I love this blog and his journey to becoming an influencer. Very impressive.

    This is a cool concept but I’m not sure how practical it would be for every day use. On special occasions though,…? Absolutely!

      You make a few batches and put them in a tiny balm style pot to carry with you! Pop it in your purse and away you go.

    Et voilà! The frustration evaporates from money spent on a shade we will never wear.
    We can have fun tailoring a custom shade for ourselves.

    Wow! This is great! It’s always a hassle to find the right colour in the shop, or even worse, online. This way you can experiment with as many colour as you wish at the comfort of your own home
