YSL Volupte Sheer Candy Glossy Balm N04

Hey lovely ladies! I hope you're all well and keeping warm?! I still can't believe there is snow on the ground as I'm typing this. When is Spring and that thing we call a sun, going to make an appearance?
Anyways, today I want to share with you my latest addition to my makeup collection. If you have seen my recent beauty wishlist, you would have seen this beaut! I have been longing to own a YSL product for a while now as they packaging is just gorgeous and I have heard so many good reviews about them.
At the beginning of the month, I had an assignment to hand in which I was really stressing about but cut a long story short, I passed it and decided to treat myself, and I knew exactly what beauty counter I was going to head to...
I visited the YSL counter in Debenhams and was amazed at the gorgeous packaging and lipsticks staring back at me. I knew I wanted to try the Volupte Sheer Candy Balms but wasn't too sure what colour. I asked the MUA for some assistance and she was very helpful. She applied a couple on my lips but in the end I decided on No. 4 Succulent Pomegranate. This shade is perfect for everyday wear and is build-able if you would like a more intense colour. It is a perfect lip colour to be applied without lip liner and keeps your lips feeling soft and hydrated. The product applies smoothly and smells amazing, just like watermelons.
I am also in love with the packaging. It looks and feels luxurious (now theres a word!) I really like that the background colour for the YSL logo is the colour of the actual lipstick. This makes it easier to see what colour the product is without opening it.
These lipsticks retail at £23.50 but I ended up buying it for £18.50 as I had £5 to spend on my Debenhams Beauty Card! This made it even more of a treat ;).

Do you own anything from YSL?

  8. Ah aren't we all in love with the packaging! I'm dying to try out one of these lipsticks, as soon as I have some money to spare they will be there first thing I buy! I was surprised at how sheer the coverage is though! The colour in the bullet looks so beautifully intense. How long does it wear for before needing a top up?
