Hot Pink Summer Kisses or YSL Succulent Pomegrante

I've had YSL's Succulent Pomegrante for a while now, and while I haven't worn it often because of a terrible break out on my chin that I haven't wanted to draw attention to, I am completely in love with it. So I thought I'd do a bit of a mini review.

 First like all the other Volupte Sheer Candy Glossy Balm's it has gorgeous Silver packaging with a Gold emblem over a background that's ment to be what the color looks like inside. I'd say it's a close match but obviously a bit off because it's metallic.

 The of course the color is amazing. It's a very bright pink, which can look very scary, but it's truely amazing on. Lets look at it, please excuse the lighting differences from image to image, I promise that the colors shown are true to color.

First my lips with nothing but lipbalm on. Smith's Strawberry Rosebud Salve to be exact. Why yes that is the same picture from my last YSL review, thank you for noticing. In my opinion, bare lips are bare lips and there was no sense taking a fresh picture when I had a perfectly good one already.

Then we have the color freshly applied. It's a gorgeous warm pink that's sheer, but still bright. It feels amazingly moisturizing on the lips and wears really well.

 Finally, for some reason I have an image of it a few hours after application. I'd like to say I did it on purpose to show you how it wears, but really I'm sure it was just a random thing, or I had my husband crop the wrong photo. Whatever.

Even a few hours later it still gives a lovely rosy, glowy tint to your lips and if I could get that color on my cheeks I'd be the happiest woman in the world.

This is definitely my favorite product for summer, completely beating out Tarte's Lip Pencil in Joy from last Summer.
