Suddenly lips oils are big business and I love it!!  I have no idea why, but right from the first mention of the concept I was hooked!! Here’s a look at YSL’s which is calling itself the ‘first lip oil infused with colour’ – the YSL Volupte Tint in Oil.

So straight off, and of course with YSL, the packaging looks really good and I absolutely love this type of applicator which YSL introduced when they launched the Gloss Volupte last year.

It is a little heart shape which hugs the lips to apply the perfect amount of product. You can then use it on the other side to perfectly define the lip line and cupid’s bow. It is very clever and very effective.

Also effective is the opaque silver casing which has been designed to preserve and protect the unique formula.

YSL Volupte Tint in Oil Formula

YSL Volupte Tint in Oil is all about bringing us the nourishing  benefits of oil along with beautiful colour. It promises:

  • no sensation of dry lips
  • no sticky texture
  • no rapid colour fade

Under normal circumstances, oil and tint naturally repel each other so YSL have introduced Colour Link Infuser which is a stabilising technology that makes the colour soluble in oil. The pigments are captured within the oil and remain on the lips once the oil has slowly gone.

YSL Volupte Tint in Oil blend uses 5 precious oils:

  • Apricot Kernel Oil
  • Macadamia Seed Oil
  • Coriander Fruit Oil
  • Jojoba Seed Oil
  • Passion Flower Oil

It certainly feels very nourishing and comfortable on the lips, and it  leaves a super shiny finish with no stickiness. It has a yummy mango scent too.

I have shade No6 Peach Me Love and although it is a sheer colour, it is really poppy and glowing. It has a stain element which makes the colour very long lasting.

  • N0 1 – Drive Me Copper
  • No 2 – Oh My Gold
  • No 3 – Undress Me
  • No 4 – I Rose You
