Big fashion kisses to YSL for their truly scrumptious Volupte Sheer Candy Glossy Balm. When thinking lip balms, it’s usually a dab of a finger in a small pot and a smear on the lips. Job done. But for those wanting a sophisticated balm that guises itself quite beautifully as a lipstick, then look no further than this grown up version. Giving lips the supermodel treatment – hyaluronic acid microspheres trap water for a subtle pillow-ey pout, the bullet imparts a see-thru coloured gloss that settles comfortably on the lips with no sticky gloopiness. With no need to ‘paint’ on a lip, the look is fresh, sexy and altogether mouth-watering.
Available in six fruity colours with names such as Lush Coconut and Succulent Pomegranate, they cost £21 each and are available from Harrods and House of Fraser. Available nationwide 23rd June.
