Earlier this yr YSL launched a brand new lipstick known as the Volupte Tint-In-Balm ($34 every for 0.12 oz3.5 g, made in France). There have been quite a few teasers on social however have been practically inconceivable to search out for fairly a while. Shades saved promoting out and happening back-order and as a make-up junkie I’ve been making an attempt to trace them down for weeks. They’ve lastly arrived at most retailers. I ordered three from Nordstrom as seen/swatched in my Spring Make-up Bag put up. I ended by Sephora not too long ago and picked up a number of extra shades and have eight of the 12 to overview for you at the moment. The Volupte Tint-In-Balms seem to have changed the Volupte Sheer Sweet formulation. They’ve a really related really feel by way of having a shiny texture, sheer pigment, moisturizing really feel and grapefruit scent (though YSL calls it pomegranate). These have the cutest little lip-shaped facilities which runs from the highest to backside all through the core – these have moisturizing components like apricot butter and jojoba oil.
I actually love these balms. They’ve a nourishing emollient really feel and are tremendous straightforward to use. In case you like merchandise just like the Chanel Rouge Coco Shines and even the YSL Volupte Shine Oil in Stick I believe you’ll like these YSL Volupte Tint-In-Balms. I’d say by comparability the YSL runs a bit extra sheer with a jelly-like barely clear end. Your pure lip shade will present via. The YSL additionally has a extra emollient balmy really feel by comparability to the Chanel.
A lot of you would possibly marvel how these evaluate to the Tom Ford Clutch-Sized Lip Balms from the Summer season Soleil assortment (reviewed right here). I’d say the YSL has a softer extra shiny texture. It has a extra emollient really feel whereas the Tom Ford balms are a bit tougher. The Tom Ford balms really feel like they adhere a bit extra to my lips whereas the YSL has extra slip. I can’t say one is healthier than the opposite, however for months the place the climate is sizzling and humid I feel I’m going to want the Tom Ford.
A fast word on Recent Sugar tinted lip balms since I do know a lot of you may have requested me to match. I had fairly a number of earlier than however they saved breaking on me so I ended shopping for them. I don’t know in the event that they’ve modified the formulation or packaging however mine all the time broke on me. Texture/pigment I discover the Recent balms to be lots thicker however with barely extra pigment.
As a result of sheerness of pigment these will look totally different on you relying in your pure lip tone. The Sephora web site has them swatched on two skintones, truthful and deep. I’m someplace within the center so not one of the swatches on the chart resemble what the colours appear like on me, but it surely does provide you with a good suggestion on the distinction in undertone.
The shades I bought:
- 1 Dream My Nude is a nude pink with mauve tones
- 2 Tease Me Pink is a mushy pink
- Three Name Me Rose is a pale child pink
- four Need Me Pink is a brilliant watermelon shade
- 7 Flirt Me Coral is a medium peach
- 9 Tempt Me Pink is a sizzling brilliant pink
- 10 Seduce Me Pink is a pink berry
- 12 Attempt Me Berry is a brilliant pink with plum tones
I really like each single shade, though on me brighter pinks are likely to look the identical on my lips. I don’t check testers on myself on the retailer (I solely hand swatch them), so it was inconceivable for me to inform that a few of them would look practically an identical on me. If I had been in a position to do it over, I’d have opted for #5 Dare Me Plum as an alternative of #12 Attempt Me Berry. I’d have additionally picked #four Need Me Pink, #9 Tempt Me Pink or #10 Seduce Me Pink (not all three).
Right here’s what they give the impression of being on me beneath. They had been swatched over a number of totally different days, however I’m carrying the identical basis in all of the pictures which is the Tom Ford Waterproof Basis in Bisque (though up to now week I’ve gotten a bit extra shade and doubtless ought to be carrying Pure or Sable as an alternative).
Swatches as all the time are on naked lips, no liner or basis or concealer as a base:
One final look, high row is: 1, 2, 3, four and the underside row is 7, 9, 10, 12
As a impartial lip lover, my favorites are 1 Dream Me Nude, 2 Tease Me Pink, Three Name Me Rose and seven Flirt Me Coral. I really like that the brighter ones give a wholesome wash of shade with out feeling overdone. As a lipstick and lip balm junkie I feel these are nice. They’re good to throw within the purse for a little bit of shade that can go together with any look or event. Lasting energy after all isn’t going to be so long as a lipstick or liquid lipstick. I’m able to get a good quantity of damage with out fading however as of late I’m making an attempt to higher about ingesting extra liquids to remain hydrated so the fixed sipping has impacted the lasting energy of lip merchandise. For some motive since my husband and I’ve moved to Florida our pores and skin has felt considerably extra dry though we thought the alternative would occur with the nice and cozy humid climate. We’re switching up our skincare and physique care so keep tuned for a spring skincare replace quickly.
Backside line, I really like these. I feel everybody ought to take a look at no less than one shade. That being stated for those who don’t like sheer and wish seen shade, take a look at the YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Oil-in-Stick as an alternative (I nonetheless swear by #47 Beige Shirt).
You will discover the YSL Volupte Tint-in-Balm in any respect counters now. Some shops could also be bought out of shades as I’ve discovered they preserve promoting out. You may as well discover them on-line at Sephora, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus and YSL Magnificence.
