{Review} YSL Volupte Sheer Candy - 07 Sweet Fig

Hello all! Here was a review I promised a few weeks ago. I'm sorry it took so long to deliver, but it's always better late than never, right? =)

YSL Volupte Sheer Candy - Glossy Balm Crystal Color - 07 Sweet Fig

The 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.

- very moisturizing
- color is buildable
- easy to apply (no mirror needed)
- luxurious packaging
- nice finish
- texture is super smooth

- wear of color is very short (1-2 hours at most)
- pricey ($30 a pop)

- the fruity scent may be offensive to some people - I don't really care for it

Not a lot of people know this, but I suffer from lip eczema. I have to be careful with what I put on my lips, especially now due to the cold weather. This is the one product I have no problem putting on my lips because it actually soothes my lip eczema! In fact, I count on this product when my lips are feeling aggravated. I haven't found a lot of products that can do this, so it has become very precious to me.

If you want to splurge on something luxurious (and if you don't mind the sheerness), I recommend giving this product a try! It's also a great way to slowly branch out and try different colors since they're so sheer!

Have you tried any of these tinted lip balms from YSL? If so, how do you like them?

Thank you for stopping by!


  1. I've looked at this color so many times and never bought it, but this makes me want it AGAIN!!! Ugh...and I've already done 2 Sephora orders today...LOL...maybe I'll have to go in store for this one!

    1. Hey... it's a lot of money to spend, so I understand the hesitation! It's definitely a great idea to go in the store to play with it first. I hope you'll find your answer then! =)

  2. the packaging is so elegant and the shade gorgeous!! But I think I won't be able to splurge on this as my wallet doesn't allow me too~ lolz~ Thanks for sharing =)
