YSL Volupte Sheer Candy Glossy Balm

4 Feb


Happy Thursday! Just one more day till the weekend starts and it’s going to be much needed.  I wanted to share with you my one big splurges I did at Christmas. I had a few Sephora gift cards and had been wanting to purchas a Yves Saint Laurent lipstick.  I decided to get a Glossy Balm since I couldn’t get to store to test out the other colors they had.  I bought Mouthwatering Berry, which I thought would be a great inbetween color that wasn’t to pink or way to dark.


It’s kind of crazy how differen the color looks with and with out the flash.  I will say that flas does give more of it’s true color.


As you can see by the swatch without the flash, it is definately sheer. With the flash you can indeed see the glossy part. So the name of the lipstick does not give you a false advertisement (which bugs me when it does!)


So my verdict here, I really like the glossiness of the lipstick, it’s nice and smooth.  You do have to give it a few go arounds on the lip to get it a good consistancy, as you can see it does show the lines in your lips if you don’t exfoliate (mine were chapped that day).  At least from far away you don’t really notice it.   What I dislike about it:  The price $34 (yes this was a HUGE SPLURGE) and the scent. It’s got a weird plastic grapefruit smell. It doesn’t linger but when you open it up you can get a wiff of it.

Would I buy another again? No, just for the price alone and I can purchase Revlon Satin line for 3/4 the price.  At least I can say I have a YSL lipstick. I’ll be using the hell out of it to get my money’s worth.

Advice:  Unless you have a disposable income or gift cards, skip it.  Go with someting from Urban Decay, they have a Naked Lip Gloss line now and a girl friend of mine already purchased two and said they are amazing and hydrating. When I get paid I’m going to get some!

But if your insterested click here to go to Sephora and see the other colors they have in this line

So have you all purchased any YSL? Or a splurge like this?

    It’s always fun to try a luxe brand and feel fancy! Its a pretty color on you!
    I’m not a YSL girl, I refuse to buy from them after they put red soles on their shoes! Not classy!

      I was curious since I saw one blogger rave about a few she had. And your right…not classy.
      I will stick with my Urban Decay lippies

        The Revoltionary line is great. F Bomb is an amazing red.

    A few YSL products have been on my wishlist for a several months. Sorry to hear you weren’t absolutely in love with your – considering the crazy cost! For the amount of money you have to pay, it should be the best product you’ve ever used! 🙂

      I agree. It was nice but not something that I will buy again.

    I’ve always wanted to try a YSL product but haven’t because of the price. Maybe that was a good thing! Thanks for your review. It’s very helpful!!
