YSL Volupte Tint-in-Oil Cherry My Cherie

I love YSL lip products. Not just their cute packaging is so appealing. The formula is always impressive.

I picked this up last week before the Sephora Chic Week as the shade I want(My Cherie) has been out of stock for a week and when it came back to stock, I couldn't wait anymore.

YSL Volupte Tint-in-Oil (5 Cherry My Cherie)

After a long cold winter and too many lip tints and matte lippies, my lips are quite chapped. Decided to try the YSL Volupte Tint-In-Oil as the concept of oil lippies is interesting. 

It was quite hard to pick the shade as I know the lighter shades barely show up on lips. I picked No. 5 Cherry My Cherie. It is a cherry pink shade. It may look quite neon pink on the wand but when it is applied, it is not.

The applicator is so unique. With its angled applicator, it is a breeze to appl with even product distributed onto your lips.

When swatched, it is a very sheer and pale pink shade.

When it is first applied, it appears glossy and it is totally moisturizing.

When it is dried(usually about an hour after initial application), the glossiness disappeared and leave a tint. This picture is taken about an hour and you can tell it is much darker than when it is freshly-applied.

This product is a very interesting product. It seems to have pros for both worlds: moisturizing and color pay-off.  It leaves a very subtle tint on your lips after the initial gloss is worn off. However, don't expect it to last for the whole day just like your typical glosses. It lasts about 2 hours on my lips. 

I wasn't totally sold on this before but after trying out a sample, I really enjoy it and think it is great especially on days when you wear minimal makeup. It gives your lips a hint of color and at the same time moisturized. If you want to give it a try, I suggest to go for  darker shades as the lighter shades would not show up too good on lips. 

Have you tried this new lip product from YSL?

I also got this deluxe sample of belif aqua bomb. I think it is a brand Sephora just started to carry. 

It is a gel texture moisturizer. Curious to try this out as I read good reviews about this product.

Also got some samples including the Urban Decay Sheer Lipstick samples, Clinique concealer and Hourglass foundation.


  1. Ooh this looks lovely on you! I have the gold one that I bought when this product first came out but I actually haven't even opened it! Good to hear it's as good as advertised, I'll open mine soon hehe, but it sounds like mine won't be very pigmented... oh well the gloss / moisture part hopefully will still be good.

    1. thank you :) When it comes to new makeup, I'm like a kid in the candy store and can't wait to open and try. Hope you will try yours soon and tell me what you think of it.

  2. i have definitely seen conflicting reviews over these but really they do seem like they would be very comfortable on the lips even when i've swatched them in store.

    1. The price tag is really steep in this one and for that reason alone, I don't think I will be picking up any more shades. I like the formula as it is super moisturizing but it only last a few hours on my lips, just like any other lip gloss. But I find you can't really keep re-applying as the tint is quite pigmented.
