I am a huge fan of YSL lipsticks and balms so when I found out they were launching a new Volupte Liquid Colour Balm I literally stalked the web daily to buy them the second they went online.
If you like the Volupté Tint-in-Balm or Rouge Volupté Shine you are going to be obsessed with the Volupte Liquid colour Balms. YSL describes this as it having a “breakthrough formula” that is “packed with soothing shea butter, antioxidant-rich vitamin E, coconut water and jojoba oil, which soften lines, enhance lip texture and lock in moisture”.
It comes with a flexible cushiony sponge tip applicator. The tip is in the cutest shape of lips! Pigment is rather impressive for a lip balm in my opinion, but they are still medium in coverage. It has an ultra smooth hydrating feel and it’s quite lush on the lips. Each balm has that distinct fruity melon/mango/rose kind of scent which I love.
The colours don’t have shimmer, but there is a high shine and some of them have a very subtle pearl which isn’t noticeable on, but adds dimension. While these aren’t necessarily plumping for some reason on my already full lips the moisture and shine makes my lips look super full.
Bottom line 100% love. If you’re lip gloss lover and like tinted balms but want something with colour , these are for you! I love every single colour and one of my favourite is # 2 Expose Me Rose. I am literally obsessed. The colour is pretty, fresh and perfect for spring to summer. I am for sure going to have it in my makeup bag at all time for the rest of the year!
