YSL Volupte Tint-in-Balm

YSL Volupte Tint-in-Balm – Recently YSL launched a new lipstick known as Volupte Tint-In-Balm. There have been many teasers on social media about it. It became popular quickly, and its shades were selling out fast. A large number of people are placing orders for it. Finally, the products have arrived in most retailers after quite some time.

The Volupte Tint-in-Balm arrives in a sleek silver tube with a shiny, reflective finish. The packing has a nice weight, so the lipstick feels extra deluxe. The centre of the tube is decorated with a coloured band that specifies the shade inside. Around the band is an intricate cut-out design of the YSL logo. The real lipstick has a slanted tip with a lip-shaped core filled with lip-conditioning components, while the outer layer contains real pigments.

The Volupte Tint-In-Balms seem to have substituted the Volupte Sheer Candy formulation. They have a similar feel in terms of possessing a glossy texture, sheer pigment, nourishing feel and grapefruit scent (though YSL states it is pomegranate). These have the prettiest little lip-shaped centres, which run from top to bottom throughout the core – these have moisturizing ingredients like apricot butter and jojoba oil.

In terms of wear, this fare is the same as your average lip balm. The colour will transfer and disappear within a couple of hours, so reapplying it will be required to preserve it. These are some very fancy and beautiful tinted lip balms. The smooth and lightweight formulation feels very good on the lips, but the price label is quite high. It is YSL we are speaking about, so we are well aware of it.

YSL Volupte Tint-in-Balm – Qualities

All the shades of the balm are amazing. They have a nourishing emollient feel and are super easy to apply. If you like products like the Chanel Rouge Coco Shines or even the YSL Volupte Shine Oil in Stick,  you will like these YSL Volupte Tint-In-Balms. By comparison, the YSL runs a bit sheerer with a jelly-like, slightly transparent finish. Your natural lip colour will show through. The YSL also has a more emollient balmy feel compared to Chanel.

You might wonder how these compare to the Tom Ford Clutch-Sized Lip Balms from the Summer Soleil collection (reviewed here. The YSL has a softer, more glossy texture. It has a more emollient feel, while the Tom Ford balms are a bit harder. The Tom Ford balms feel like they adhere a bit more to the lips, while the YSL has more slips. It is tough to say one is better than the other, but for months when the weather is hot and humid, it will be better to prefer the Tom Ford.

A Quick Note On Fresh Sugar Tinted Lip Balms.

The texture/pigment of the Fresh balms is a lot thicker but with slightly more colouring.Due to the sheerness of pigment, these will look different depending on your natural lip tone. The Sephora website has them swatched on two skin tones, fair and deep, but it does give you a good idea of the difference in the undertone.

YSL Volupte Tint-in-Balm – The Following Are The Shades:

1 Dream My Nude

2 Tease Me Pink

3 Call Me Rose

4 Desire Me Pink

5 Dare me, plum

6 Touch Me Red

7 Flirt Me, Coral

8 Catch Me Orange

9 Tempt Me Pink

10 Seduce Me Pink

11 Play Me Fuchsia

12 Try Me, Berry

Every shade is amazing, although brighter pinks tend to look the same on the lips. #1 Dream Me Nude: This is a slight pink-beige with a delicate dash of micro silver sparkles. The colour may look a bit milky and irregular on darker lips, so I think the colour works best for those with paler skin and lips.
#6 Touch Me Red: A sheer pink cherry red, “Touch Me Red”, is very flattering and youthful.
#8 Catch Me Orange: This is a sheer popsicle orange perfect for the summertime.

The best option could be shade #5, Dare Me Plum, instead of #12, Try Me, Berry and shade #4, Desire Me Pink, #9, Tempt Me Pink, or #10, Seduce Me Pink. Swatches, as always, are on bare lips, with no liner or foundation or concealer as a base:

1 Dream Me Nude, 2 Tease Me Pink, 3 Call Me Rose and 7 Flirt Me, Coral, give a healthy wash of colour without feeling overdone, as these are great. They’re nice to throw in the purse for a bit of colour that will go with any look or occasion. Lasting power isn’t going to be as long as lipstick or liquid lipstick.


Everyone should check out at least one colour. If you don’t like sheer and want visible colour, check out the YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Oil-in-Stick instead. You can find the YSL Volupte Tint-in-Balm at all counters now. They have not been available in some stores as their stock was over. You can also find them online at Sephora, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus and YSL Beauty.
