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
