While on my stop over in Frankfurt, Germany during my recent trip, I, like any other make-up addict headed straight for the duty-free makeup counters. After picking up a few things, I spotted this YSL Volupté Sheer Candy glossy balm in Succulent Pomegranate. The consultant grabbed a new tube for me; I paid and was off to my plane with minutes to spare. Excited to put on my new gloss, I opened the box and realized I was given the wrong shade. Delay the plane, this is an emergency! Ok, no, I didn’t cause a scene but I did ask if I had enough time to run and exchange it. I didn’t. On my way back to Canada, I stopped at the same duty-free shop, picked up the lip balm again only to have the cashier forget to put it in my bag. I realized somewhere over Greenland. Why was I not supposed to have this gloss?! Back home, I went on the hunt and found it at Holt Renfrew. The sheer veil of colour brightens up my face and even after the sheen wares off the colour ever so lightly stains my lips and lasts for hours. It smells delicious and packs a punch of vitamins and anti-oxidants to nourish and hydrate your lips for up to eight hours. It was definitely worth the trouble to my hands on it!
