The More Affordable Dupe for the Yves Saint Laurent Vinyl Cream Lip Stain

It's a known fact in the dupe community that brands under the same parent company share their formulas and are usually dupes of each other. The difference in price is because of differences in marketing spending or packaging.
YSL Beauty is a brand that has many classic best-selling products, the ($38) is certainly one of them. The formula is quite unique, it has a cream texture, a glossy finish, a hydrating formula, a lightweight feel, and an incredible color payoff. The only thing that is not so great is its price tag.
Luckily for us, YSL beauty is a brand that falls under the L'Oreal company umbrella, and L'Oreal created a very similar product  -  the  ($12).  Even by the look of it, the two look similar. Both have a diamond-shaped applicator for precise application. The formula feels lightweight and watery when first applied, but then it sets down a bit into a glossy finish that leaves a stain as it wears off (lasts long but not super long because of its finish). The color payoff is also just as great.
You really cannot tell a big difference between the two other than YSL's chic brand logo. With this dupe, for the price of one YSL, you can get 3 shades.
