Good morning dolls! Recently I’ve been battling some serious insomnia so I got up super early today but figured that regardless my tiredness I want to do a blog post for you guys. A product that has been on my ‘to review’ list for ages has been the YSL Volupte Sheer Candy Glossy Balm in #2 Dewy Papaya, so get excited because its turn finally came! :)

I am pretty sure that by now you’ve all heard about the infamous YSL Rouge Volupte lipsticks, which almost every beauty blogger / guru raves about. They are brilliant, that’s for sure so when I saw that YSL have new Volupte line I instantly pick one product up. Volupte Sheer Candy Glossy Balms, as the name suggests, are basically sheer tinted lip balms and come in twelve different shades. The one I got is #2 Dewy Papaya because as we all now I am obsessed with orange-y lips. Dewy Papaya is described as ‘sheer peach’ shade, which may look a bit too bright and scary in the packaging but it goes on pretty sheer and gives just a little wash of color to the lips. It doesn’t have any shimmer or glitter in it and has a gorgeous glossy, juicy finish, which I adore. <3

As I said, being legit lip balms Volupte Sheer Candy are definitely not opaque and not very pigmented, so if you’re looking for something with more coverage I’m afraid these babes may not be for you. I feel like I say this in pretty much all my lip product reviews but these balms are not long lasting at all. They stay on my lips for about half an hour and then I need to reapply, which is quite annoying but at least I have a reason to pull out and admire the fab, luxurious packaging! :) This lip balm feels moisturizing initially but after a while (if it’s still there hah) my lips kind of feel a bit dry and tight. Since I have insanely dry lips it could be just me though, because my best friend says she finds it super hydrating? On a different note, Dewy Papaya applies like a charm and glides on super easily. It has a lovely cream, emollient texture, which feels so soft and smooth on the lips when applied. What I adore about this product, besides the shade, is its yummy fruity scent, which reminds me of exotic tropical islands and makes it great for the summertime!

In a nutshell, I’d say that Volupte Sheer Candy Glossy Balm in Dewy Papaya is a nice but definitely not great product. It is neither very moisturizing nor long lasting but its gorgeous summery shade and the fab packaging kind of make up for that a bit. However, I don’t know the price of $32/£23 could be justified and this is a lot of money for a tinted lip balm! If you’d like to treat yourself then you may consider getting this though, especially if you are a lip balm kind of gal. I don’t regret buying this because I still use it and I quite like it for the summer, but to be honest I won’t be getting any of the other Volupte Sheer Candy Glossy Blams, for my they are just not living up to their high price tag.

Have you tried the YSL Volupte Sheer Candy Glossy Balms? How do you like them? Would you be getting any balms from this range? :)

Have a fab weekend beauties! <3

Lots of love,

  1. От доста време гледам червилото (за balm определено няма да дам толкова пари) и заедно с YSL Touche Eclat са ми в списъка <3 .
    Блогът ти е супер и го чета от доста време без да имам представа, че си българка докато не видях коментар хаха :) Поздравявам те.

  2. I love the shade that you got! I also really like the fact that it's scented. I've never tried the sheer balms but want to now.

  6. It sounds like such a nice shade! I'm not overly keen on sheer lipsticks so I think the normal volupte shine would be better for me :)

  15. Изглежда страхотно, аз не притежавам нито едно червило на YSL, имам само един от стейновете им, но за в бъдеще се надявам да успея да си взема това онова, че съм хвърлила око на няколко цеята.

  16. I love the ysl packaging but when they are so sheer I totally agree that they're not worth the price xx

  19. This is actually on my list to look at for my birthday! I want the sheer candy one instead of a lipstick because they are going to go bad eventually so I might as well love the packaging and reapply regularly!

  21. I don't know if I'll be picking any of these up; they are pretty heftily priced for a balm. I own one of the original YSL Rouge Volupte though and I do love it!

  25. Pretty but I don't think I'd pay the YSL price tag for such a sheer colour. Although I know this product does hit the spot for a lot of people!

  33. I love YSL lip products in general. They are a little pricey but so luxurious! I have a Rouge Volupte Sheer Candy in 10 - Tandy Mandarine as I too love orangey lip colors. It is pretty pigmented for a balm.

    If you find it dries out your lips after a while, it may have mineral oil in it. (Although I couldn't find anything as to whether it does or doesn't). I was using EOS lipbalms all winter and they ended up completely drying out my lips to the point that they hurt. Turns out they have mineral oil, which can actually be a drying agent.

  36. It looks really lovely, naturally, but reading your thoughts on this I don't think I would get myself one. There are such great and affordable tinted lip balms out there, I'd rather grab some of those I guess.

    Could you perhaps do a picture of you wearing it next time? I find it helps me so much to really see how it turns out to be as most lipsticks look so different on the lips than on the back of a hand :)

  37. I wouldn't splurge on the glossy balms but the regular lipsticks are worth a shot :D
