The Lipstick Lollipops: YSL Rouge Volupte Sheer Candy, Thoughts and Swatches

With a rainbow of shades to choose from, the Rouge  Volupte Sheer Candy lipsticks are by far the most luxurious lip balms I have encountered. The shade selection is eclectic unlike the usual coloured lip balms in the market. From the brightest to the darkest, you will be amazed at how each shade is unique. Some are great for the colder season, some for summer while some are great as an all-season shade.

I have with me 3 shades; no. 7 Sweet fig which is a sheer terracotta red, no. 8 Iced Plum which is a sheer blue toned lilac pink and no. 12 which is a sheer medium pink. Sweet Fig is particularly great for autumn and winter but who says there's a rule for when to wear your lipsticks, right?

The texture of these lip balms feel so nourishing on the lips. With its sweet mango scent, it is packed with plant oils to help replenish and moisturize the lips with a dose of colour. You can feel the oils melting upon contact with the lips. The moisture retains on the lips quite long too. I can see it as a great lipstick topper for everyday use or as a lip balm that you can take out of your bag and reapply. Due to its sheer coverage, it does not need precision when applying. Thus, a mirror is not mandatory.

I love everything about them. They remind me a lot of lollipops and the Push Pop lipstick candy with their candylicious hue. Do you own any Rouge Volupte Sheer Candy lipstick?
