Yves Saint Laurent Volupté Liquid Colour Balms

As you may know already, Yves Saint Laurent is launching a new lip product next month! Available in 16 shades, the Volupté Liquid Colour Balms are enriched with coconut water, pomegranate extract, shea butter, jojoba oil and vitamin E.

Yves Saint Laurent YSL Volupte Liquid Colour Balms Review Swatches No 1 8 11

The formula is very unique, it's a totally different sensory experience! The texture is quite thin, and it feels like my skin is drenched in water. It smooths my lips instantly and has a beautiful dewy finish, but it doesn't feel sticky or thick!

The color payoff is good for a lip balm, the shades are translucent but nicely pigmented. The colors I have can look a bit streaky if I apply too much product, though! 

Unlike Yves Saint Laurent's Vinyl Cream Lip Stains, this new tinted lip balm doesn't leave a noticeable stain on my lips

Oh and the Volupté Liquid Colour Balms have a lovely tropical scent and a slightly sweet taste! To me, it smells like watermelon, papaya and mango!

 Left to right : No. 1 Night Rehab, No. 8 Excite Me Pink, No. 11 Hook Me Berry

The shade No. 1 Night Rehab is a very sheer milky pink, but it's almost completely colorless on the lips. This one is meant to be used as a lip balm or a lip sleeping mask!

For the past 5 nights, I used it instead of my favorite lip balm and my lips feel super smooth now! But if your lips are very dry like mine, I recommend to apply a generous amount of product, otherwise it won't last all night.

The lips-shaped applicator is super cute too! I was afraid that it would be difficult to use, but it doesn't affect the application process.

My only complaint is the staying power, it's a slippery formula and it doesn't last through a meal. But it's a tinted lip balm, so you shouldn't expect the same staying power than a lipstick.

  1. Thank you for this review! It was really helpful. Do you find that they're similar to the Tint-in-Oils or Tint-in-Balms?
