YSL Sheer Candy Glossy Balm
I LOVE this lip balm/gloss! I want to own them all! Depending on which color you buy, they either feel like a balm or a gloss. I got 2 different shades, this one is Dewy Papaya, and the other shade is in Lush Coconut. As you can tell from the second picture it's a bright colored stick.
When you apply this, it definitely feels like a gloss. It goes on slick and has a beautiful shine to it. The lasting power on these isn't very long, but they look great! I recommend swatching these before you buy them bc they are pricey and you don't want to get something that doesn't work.
Also, the packaging is nice and sturdy and has the signature YSL logo. The only thing I don't like about these is the signature YSL taste. I have a few of their products and all of them taste like it.
Dior Addict Lip Polish
I bought this bc I was intrigued by the tag line. It's supposed to be a lip primer and a lip polish in one. I believe this line only comes in 3 shades. I bought it in glow expert, which is a sheer light coral.
I haven't seen much of a difference in my lips, but I like the feel of the gloss. It's not sticky and the color it produces is very nice. It gives your lips the my lips but better color.
I have also worn this gloss over lipstick and it's great! If you ever have a lipstick that enhances the cracks on your lips, apply a little of this gloss and it actually helps even out and moisturize.
Smashbox Lip Treatment
This is my absolute favorite lip base. I wear it underneath lipsticks ALL the time and it gives a beautiful base. It almost works as a primer bc the balm isn't shiny or greasy. Some balms are so greasy that the color slides right off.
I also use this as a lip boost when my lips are chapped. It works wonders and it also has SPF 15. I already have a back up in my drawer bc the current one is running low.
The packaging is a white matte case. It has the same feel as the NARS products. I haven't really had a problem with it getting dirty and I take it on travel a lot. The balm is also supposed to have a "honey" taste/smell to it, but I don't like it. I find the scent and taste to be weird, but it goes away pretty fast.
