Tag: YSL makeup review
I’ve already reviewed the new Volupte Sheer Candy lip balms which I adore so now it’s time to write about the eye shadow palette and the blush.
Today I will tell you about the eye shadow duo in 35 Caramel Tan/Burnt Brown (Terre Halee/ Brun Embrase).These eye shadows come in a signature gold YSL packaging with two sponges.
And I actually use the sponges when I apply the eye shadows as they pick just the right amount of the product. I don’t like brushes like MAC 217 with these eye shadows because they don’t pick up the right amount of the product which leads to a very sheer application.

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

Volupte Sheer Candy has a classic YSL lipstick design which looks chic and feels heavy. I personally like it.
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
I like Yves Saint Laurent glosses and already reviewed one of my Golden Glosses which you can see here.
But let’s go back to this blue baby. So what is so special about it?
The fact that it is blue! Now obviously, it doesn’t look blue on your lips but the fact that it is blue in tube makes it so special. It reminds me of the Dior gloss from the spring collection which looked grey/silver in the tube but nothing like that on the lips.
But you know what you are using and that makes it special. I have so many glosses and this one is definitely one of those that stand out when I go through my collection, it catches the eye immediately.
On the lips it
