Yves Saint Laurent has recently launched their new Sheer Candy Glossy Balms and I’m head over heels in love! They moisturize like a lip butter, leave a gorgeous shine like a gloss, come in a fabulous packaging like all YSL lippies and they smell like delicious mango (similar to the Rouge Volupte lipsticks). The hydration lasts for hours, and they aren’t sticky at all. I really have nothing bad to say about them except for the fact the price is quite steep, as they are a high-end brand name product.
My favorite shade is #1 Lush Coconut, a gorgeous sheer nude with golden shimmer. I also own #3 Juicy Grapefruit, a barely-there baby pink (essentially clear on the lips, but fabulous none-the-less) and I’m totally in love. The deeper shades leave much more pigment then the lighter shades, but I also find they don’t have AS much as a juicy shine (I really like to pile them on for maximum shine)!
- Price: $30 USD / $31.50 CDN
- Availability: Sephora
- Overall: I’m totally in love with these ultra-moisturizing, luxurious lip gloss balms…I would own them all if it wasn’t for their steep price! They go on like butter, moisturize like a treatment and shine like a gloss..all in one convenient lipstick form.
