Introducing YSL Gloss Volupte Sheer Sensual Gloss Stick SPF 9

Yves Saint Laurent GLOSS VOLUPTÉ Sheer Sensual Gloss Stick SPF 9 ($30)
Introducing YSL’s first gloss stick, combining the femininity and sensuality of a lipstick with the comfort and shine of a gloss. Colorshine complex and Candellila resin result in a transparent, non sticky shine. Thanks to fluid silicones and melting microcrystalline waxes, Gloss Volupté leaves your lips feeling sensual, silky and full of comfort. Pomegranate extract and a delicate Mango fragrance provide a delicious touch of freshness. Available in 4 transparent, mouth-watering shades.

I was all exicted when I stumbled across YSL’s new addition to the Volupte family, the Gloss Volupte. If you do a quick search of the blog you’ll see that I absolutely adore the Rouge Volupte formula – it’s creamy, highly pigmented, and really like no other lipstick currently on the market. I was expecting more of the same from the Gloss Voluptes, and Iced Lychee looked to be especially promising; from the swatch I was thinking it would be a milky creamy pale pink with a high shine finish. But after having seen some swatches of these I’m a little disappointed. I’ll still be checking these out in person but it looks like it’s not going to be the love at first sight I was expecting.
