Most lip products are pretty straightforward. Lipstick, gloss, crayon, lacquer, etc.. But I’ve never come across anything quite like Yves Saint Laurent’s Volupté Tint-in-Oil.
These tubes pretty much do it all. They go on like a super sheer tinted lip balm but with a light oil texture that actually feels a lot more hydrating than most balms I’ve used. Once the oil wears off, you’re left with a lip stain that’s quite a bit deeper than when you first apply it. I noticed a difference in colour between swatch on my arm and wearing it on my lips and I’m thinking there’s something in it that’ll adjust the colour so it suits you better.
If you want to keep the hydration but want to change up the colour a bit, I’ve tried wearing these over lip liner and and my lips don’t dry out at all.
I’m not a fan of how sticky lip gloss can be and these don’t have any stickiness at all. Add in the tinted stain and I’m definitely going to be wearing Volupté Tint-in-Oil all summer.
