Yves Saint Laurent Volupte Sheer Candy is a permanent collection of the YSL lip products that comes in an array of colours. These are glossy lip balm that enveloped the lips in a sheer veil of brilliant color. They are fruity scented (I think it is a watermelon scent) and they smell so delicious, almost good enough to eat! Its net weight is 0.14 oz or around 4g and costs USD $37 or AUD $55 each.
This product contains natural ingredients that is derived from nature such as fruit extracts that is rich in vitamins and antioxidants, boosting its capacity to hydrate and nourish the lips. The YSL Volupte Sheer Candy gives an ultra-light and sensual texture that leaves lips feeling soft and hydrated for a long period of time (up to 8 hours) and this product is perfect for daily use all around the year.
The sheer color is perfect for summer time while the soothing, moisturizing properties make lips feels supple and hydrated in the dry winter months. We can apply this product directly onto the lips straight from the bullet or using a lip brush, from the center of the lips and then outward and then blend gently.
I will be reviewing the colours that I have in Grenade Suave/ Succulent Pomegranate (number 4), Figue Gourmande/ Sweet Fig (number 7), Prune Frappe/ Iced Plum (number 8), Goyave Sorbet/ Cool Guava (number 9), and Mandarine Acidulée/ Tangy Mandarine (number 10).
Packaging and texture
The YSL Volupte Sheer Candy glossy balm collection is housed in a luxurious silver case with delicate gold YSL logo embellishments adorning the bullet case around the opening rim with the colour of the glossy balm as a background. The Sheer Candy glossy balm feels cooling and hydrating as it glides on smoothly onto the lips.
Longevity and Application
This product is easily applied and acts as a lip balm with a sheer colour. It moisturises the lips well and it makes my lips feels well hydrated, soft and smooth after regular use of this glossy balm for a week. It stays on my lips for about four hours . Afterwards, it loses its glossiness and leaves behind a beautiful subtle colour on the lips for another 2 hours.
Overall, I am pleased with its performance and definitely will recommend the YSL Volupte Sheer Candy if you are after a subtle colour and a glossy lip product. It is a luxury product and it is quite an investment when we look at the price point. But if you are looking for a luxury lip balm with a sheer colour, this one is highly recommended and it also gives me a multi-sensory experience just by wearing it on my lips.
