YSL Cool Guava Review or Hey, Look At My Lips

Fist of all, sorry I've been MIA this week and a lot of last week, I got busy. I did manage to have lots of pictures taken, so now that I actually have time to sit an write them there will be plenty of posts coming up.

I don't know many girls that aren't lip product junkies. I certainly am. So it's was probably no surprise when I picked up a YSL Volupte Sheer Candy Glossy Balm in #9 Cool Guava a couple weeks ago at Sephora.

I just couldn't help it, I mean look at how gorgeous the packaging is:
 and the color is just absolutely beautiful:
 So I clearly I could not leave that at Sephora, it needed to come home with me. 

As I mentioned above the packaging is amazing. It's not just pretty, it feels amazing, and the product travels smoothly in the package. I especially lof the attention to detail, behind the gold YSL emblem, the color is different on each one, so you can easily differentiate each one at a glance. 

I had a friend ask me if it wore true to color on the lips. I think it does, but I'll let you judge that for yourselves. I have before and after pictures, but the lighting and my makeup are different because these pictures weren't taken on the same day.

Here's a before picture:
I'm not wearing anything in this picture except chapstick. Smith's Strawberry Rosebud Salve to be exact.

Here's my lips with the YSL Volupte Sheer Candy in Cool Guava:
Cool Guava is a light natural pink that is really glossy. Sort of the perfect cross between a lipstick and a lipgloss. It also feels amazing on the lips, is moisturizing, doesn't sink into fine lines (which I have a lot of) and stays put for quite awhile. Even a few hours later the gloss was faded but the color was still there, and that was after I ate. I'd say it wears pretty true to color when you factor in that it's a sheer lip product.

I'm completely in love with this and I can promise you'll be seeing more of the Volupte Sheer Candy Glossy Balm's in the future. I've already got my eye on #4 Succulent Pomegranate.
