YSL has recently launched new shades of their Candy Glaze Lip Gloss Stick, and they are absolutely stunning! As an expert product reviewer, I had previously tried the formula when it first came out in Shade 02, which gave a clear and juicy shine. However, the other shades didn’t really catch my attention. But let me tell you, the new colors in Shades 13, 14, and 15 definitely do not disappoint!
In fact, I was so impressed by the new shades that I ended up ordering a few more, and I love every single one of them. The formula of the YSL Candy Glaze is unique – it’s a jelly-like lipstick lip gloss. The packaging has a twist click top and they recommend six clicks for one application. The texture is on the softer side, although not as soft as the Makeup by Mario MoistureGlow Plumping Lip Serums.
The pigmentation and color payoff of these glossy lipsticks are pretty impressive, especially considering that Shade 02 (Sweet Pink) appears almost clear on me. The slightly thicker, jelly-like texture also provides great lasting power for a glossy lip product. Additionally, they have a pleasant, sweet mango-like scent. They feel very comfortable on the lips and have less slip compared to the Rouge Volupte Shines, which I still love. But personally, I prefer the Candy Glaze formula.
Let me give you a rundown of the shades I purchased:
– Shade 02 (Sweet Pink) is a clear milky pink
– Shade 04 (Nude Pleasure) is a caramel peach brown
– Shade 05 (Pink Satisfaction) is a deep rose pink
– Shade 13 (Flashing Rosé) is a healthy medium rose pink, and my personal favorite that I’ve been wearing on repeat
– Shade 14 (Scenic Brown) is a 90s neutral brown glaze
– Shade 15 (Showcasing Nude) is a perfect nude pink
I have included two sets of swatches to show you the color and shine. I must say, Shade 13 (Flashing Rose) really stands out to me, and I’ve received many questions about it from my Instagram stories!
Some of you have asked if I’ve experienced any melting issues with the product, given the extreme heat here. Fortunately, I haven’t encountered any melting problems. We spend very limited time outdoors, usually just walking from the car to a restaurant or store. I always keep the lipstick in my purse, and even on shaded patios with fans, I haven’t experienced any melting issues. However, your mileage may vary depending on how hot it is where you are.
If you’d like to see these lip gloss sticks in action, you can check them out here! In conclusion, I find these new shades to be perfect. As of now, they seem to only be available at Sephora and YSL Beauty. However, other shades can be found at other retailers like Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Macy’s.
Have you tried these new shades yet? I would love to hear your thoughts!
YSL launched new shades of the Candy Glaze Lip Gloss Stick ($39 each) and they are stunning! I tried this formula when it originally launched in Shade 02 for a pretty clear juicy shine but the other shades never really stood out to me. There are new colors in Shades 13, 14 and 15 and they do not disappoint! I ordered a few other shades too and love every single one.
The formula of the YSL Candy Glaze is a jelly-like lipstick lip gloss. They have a twist click top and recommend six clicks for one application. They are on the soft side for the formula. Not as soft as the Makeup by Mario MoistureGlow Plumping Lip Serums though.
Pigment and color payoff is pretty impressive for a glossy lip stick (although 02 Sweet Pink is pretty much clear on me). They have a slightly thick almost jelly like texture so the lasting power is very good for a glossy lip. They are sweetly scented with a candy mango like scent. They feel very comfortable on the lips and have less slip than the Rouge Volupte Shines which I still love, but I actually like the Candy Glaze formula better. Shades I hauled:
- 02 Sweet Pink is a clear milky pink
- 04 Nude Pleasure is a caramel peach brown
- 05 Pink Satisfaction is a deep rose pink
- 13 Flashing Rosé is a healthy medium rose pink
- 14 Scenic Brown is a 90s neutral brown glaze
- 15 Showcasing Nude is a perfect nude pink

Shade 13 Flashing Rose is my favorite that I’ve been wearing on repeat. It’s also the one many of you keep asking about from my Instagram stories!
A few of you asked if I had any issues with the product melting and I can’t say that I have yet. The heat is so extreme here we are outdoors for a very limited time (ie walking from the car to a restaurant or store). I have the lipstick in my purse but we are usually only outdoors for a short time or under a shaded patio with fans blasting. Evenings outdoors are more tolerable and I haven’t had any melting issues. YMMV depending on how hot it is where you are.
You can see them in action here too!
Bottom line perfect. The new shades seem to be only available at Sephora and YSL Beauty so far. Other shades can be found at all other retailers like Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s, Saks Fifth Avenue and Macy’s.

P.S. If you’ve been looking for the Couture Mini Clutch Eyeshadows they just launched at Bloomingdale’s. I’m not sure if I will be purchasing any, currently debating whether to buy these new ones or the Cle de Peau Eyeshadow Quads.
