Today’s beauty review is on YSL’s Volupte Tint in Oil in No. 4 I Rose You.
I received a sample size of the YSL Volupte Tint in Oil in Cherry My Cherie a few months back. I loved it so much I went out and splurged on a full size version in a more neutral color. Don’t get me wrong, the Cherry My Cherie color is beautiful but I like to have a more neutral look on an everyday basis. I was immediately drawn to the I Rose You shade because I love a nice light pink tint on my lips. The interesting thing about the packaging is the applicator. It is shaped like lips and is supposed to contour your’s when putting it on. Easy application!

The consistency is a little sticky and the smell is wonderful! I always feel like I’m biting into a melon hard candy when I put this on. It definitely feels moisturizing as you apply it but the only downside… are you ready? Is that within about an hour, my lips feel dry and I have to slather some on again. I don’t really get the feeling that the “oil” is still moisturizing my lips even after the product goes away. However, the stain that it leaves behind (depending on what color you choose and the natural color of your lips) can be quite pretty.
Final thoughts: Is it worth the $32.00? Sure if you have some money to spare and really like the stain the products leaves behind on your lips. It’s YSL – which means it IS a quality product, but personally I don’t think I would purchase this again. It’s just not to my liking … 3.5/5
