Yves Saint Laurent Volupte Sheer Candy Review, Photos and Swatches

When I first wrote about the lipstick/balm trend back in February I just knew that I had to try Dior Addict and YSL Volupte Sheer Candy Lipstciks/Lip Balms.

You can find my review and swatches of Dior Addict here and today I will tell you my opinion about the YSL.

First of all I have to say that I really love the design. To tell the truth, I used to dislike the golden design  of YSL or D&G but now, although I already like it,  I have to say that I love this silver design much more.

Volupte Sheer Candy has a classic YSL lipstick design which looks chic  and feels heavy. I personally like it.

The second thing that you notice is the delicious mango scent.  I can also say that it tastes nice, it is sweet and light, but don’t ask me how do I know that 😉

As you can see I have three shades and they are:

  • 02 Dewy Papaya, sheer fresh peach
  • 04 Succulent Pomegranate, sheer bright pink with red undertones
  • 06 Luscious Cherry, sheer cherry red with golden shimmer

So what about the application? I find that these lip balms go on smoothly and I personally find them really moisturising and hydrating. They are not gloopy or waxy in any way. I already see you wondering 

Want To See Giorgio Armani Fall 2011 Makeup Collection?

This morning I was actually thinking about the fall 2011 Fall makeup collections which I haven’t seen (I can’t publish some information just yet) and I’ve realized that one of them was Giorgio Armani.

I hope that I will get all the details for you soon but meanwhile you can look at the gorgeous palettes here at Planete Beaute which I saw just several hours later after I though of the GA collection! Teddy, as usual shared some beautiful images with us,  so thank you!

Don’t you love those palettes? They look like  proper luxury products to me. The shades and the blue background used in the promo photo look similar to Guerlain Fall 2011 and Givenchy Fall 2011.

Want It: Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lip Gloss Collection for Fall 2011

Bobbi Brown will introduce a lot of new products and several collections this Fall, including the gorgeous Tortoise Shell collection (will post about it later) but the  collection  of the new High Shimmer Lip Glosses really caught my attention.


These really look and sound gorgeous and although I have tones of lip glosses, I would really love to try the Bobbi Brown’s new beauties.

These are out in July.

FINALLY I’ve Got You, Laura Mercier Bonne Mine Palette

Have you ever been after a certain beauty product for a long time?

Today I want to show you the product that I’ve wanted to get myself for Christmas (I actually wanted to get this product ever since I saw the promo photo) but for some reason it was hard to find it. It was sold out in London, couldn’t find it in Manchester, wanted to get it from New York but it didn’t work. And I could go on really…

But finally I’ve managed to get it from California, can you imagine? My friend got it for me from Sephora for $48.
