Yves Saint Laurent Volupté Sheer Candy – Tasty Raspberry


12 - 'Tasty Raspberry'
12 – ‘Tasty Raspberry’


On a recent holiday to Mallorca, I was a bit naughty at duty free. As well as picking up a couple of Salted Almond Toblerones (YUM) for my two sisters, I also perused the make up counters.

I was originally looking for Clinique Take the Day off cleansing balm, but for some reason you can only seem to get it online. Then I stumbled across the YSL stand, and was very tempted by the glosses and lipsticks. I chose this Glossy Balm Crystal Colour in 12 – ‘Tasty Raspberry’ (whataname).


I can usually tell if a lipstick or gloss will suit me without having to swatch it, and the shimmery peach hue of this gloss balm looked right up my street. I can’t remember exactly how much it was, but it was pricey (I think I was too excited to remember). With gorgeous packaging, and a sheer, non-sticky finish it really is a great subtle gloss. Although, due to the price I am trying to wear it only on special occasions…but that hasn’t really worked recently :).
