YSL Volupte Sheer Candy Glossy Balm Crystal Color Swatches

YSL is having a 20% off (free shipping over 75 dollars) sale til this Friday (just use the code "friend" at YSLbeauty) so some of you might the post helpful.
YSL Volupte Sheer Candy Glossy Balm Crystal Color is the newest addition to the Rouge Volupte line, the range of six sheer, glossy lip balms has a new packaging with siver tubes that's a lot prettier than both the original Rouge Volupte and the Rouge Volupte Perle.

01. Lush Coconut is a sheer pearly nude
02. Dewy Papaya is a creamy baby coral
03. Juicy grapefruit is a shimmery baby pink
04. Succulent Pomegranate is an raspberry pink
05. Mouthwatering Berry is a sheer sister of Shiseido Natural Wine
06. Luscious Cherry is a cherry red with golden shimmer (sheer version of Revlon Cherry Ice)

As you can see, the top three all ended up look clear on my arm and the more pigmented three just turn out as blue-pink. While I can't use the sheerness against YSL (as they are all designed this way), these are just...way too sheer. Anyway, for makeup collectors out there, the packaging alone with worth getting as it's beautiful, heavy-weighted and jewel-like.

    No, I didn't get any of those. I just managed to do some testing/swatching when I was checking out summer collections in Sephora.
