YSL Sheer Candy in Tangy Mandarine
The color is bright orange in the tube, but on the lips it turns into a beautiful pinky peach (my lips are quite rosy to begin with, so this might show up as more orangey or at least more of a true peach on those with paler lips). Tangy Mandarine goes on very smoothly and feels hydrating on the lips. It feels much creamier on the lips than the Guerlain Shine Automatique I picked up recently, which has a shimmery finish and feels slightly gritty on the lips.
As with most sheer lipsticks, it has a bit of a wet or glossy look to it, but not overly so. I am a sheer lipstick/balm junkie, and this seems to possess all of the qualities that I look for--smooth, easy to apply, allows some of my natural lip to show through, etc. The wear time is rather short as compared to more opaque lipsticks, but it's not noticeably shorter than other sheer lipsticks. And unlike many other YSL products, like the Glossy Stains, I did not detect a noticeable scent.
These luxurious bad boys will set you back $30 and are available at both Sephora and Nordstrom.
