Hey all beauty geeks!!! Today I bring to you swatches of Yves Saint Laurent Volupte Sheer Candy lip balms. I never take swatches of lip balms as generally they are so sheer that the swatches are indistinguishable for most shades. I had almost overlooked this beauties as well. But I did swatch one of them. And I was so surprised to actually see various shades of lip balms. These glossy lip balms are definitely sheer, but they will still give a decent wash of color to your lips. So, lets check them out.
According to the Sephora website,
‘ What it is:
A glossy lip balm.
What it does:
This balm dresses your lips in a sheer veil of brilliant color boosted with vitamin- and antioxidant-rich fruit extract. Its ultra light, sensual texture leaves lips feeling soft and hydrated for up to eight hours and is ideal for year-round use.
Apply to clean lips or layer over lipstick.’
I have swatched the following 5 shades for you:
- 7 – Sweet Fig
- 8 – Iced Plum
- 2 – Dewy Papaya
- 13 – Griotte Mocha
- 12 – Tasty Raspberry
7 – Sweet Fig: Sheer brick red.
8 – Iced Plum: Sheer lilac pink with shimmer.
2 – Dewy Papaya: Sheer fresh peach.
13 – Griotte Mocha: Sheer nude.
12 – Tasty Raspberry: Sheer light pink with shimmer.
Yves Saint Laurent Volupte Sheer Candy lip balms have the classiest packaging I have seen ever for a lip balm. The lip balms go sheer but still have decent pigmentation to them. They might not be able to hide color of your lips, though. They are super duper creamy and so light. I am sure they will moisturize the lips nicely. Again, they might have a decent staying power as indicated by the swatches. Over all, a luxurious lip balm to own.
Hope you all enjoyed the swatches!!! My favorites are Iced Plum and Griotte Mocha. Which are yours??
Have you tried any of the Yves Saint Laurent Volupte Sheer Candy lip balms ?
