YSL Volupté Tint-In-Oil Review

YSL Volupté Tint In Oil Undress Me
I love a good, natural, boring lip.  I don't gravitate towards vibrant, fun lipsticks.  I prefer a natural, pinky-nude lip and an occasional smokey eye.  So, when I heard about the new YSL Volupté Tint-In-Oil, I thought we might be a good match.

I bought shade #3 Undress Me.  The product feels like a moisturizing oil when applied to the lips, and it smells like those watermelon-flavored chap sticks that you had when you were a kid.  It feels like a thin yet rich lip balm, which I love.

The packaging is gorgeous, as YSL usually is.  What I don't love is the price ($32) and the pigmentation -- I hesitated originally to purchase this because I thought to myself "Do I really need another pinky-nude natural lip product"?  Sephora was sold out, so I took it as a sign.  But, when I was notified that the #3 shade was back in stock, I hopped on the bandwagon.

The pigmentation of Undress Me is almost non-existant.  Other reviews said that the product darkens on your lips over time, but I haven't noticed.  It looks like a clear gloss on my lips, and on the back of my hand it just looks like I licked my hand for a wet effect...sorry, but true.  It doesn't look bad, but I would expect it to at least look like something.  It does make the lips look juicy and plump, but so do a thousand other glosses.

Before I purchased, I thought that the Volupté Tint-In-Oil might be similar to my favorite Loreal Colour Caresse Wet Shine Lip Stain.  This is my go-to lip color in shade "Rose On and On".  The YSL oil is much more moisturizing and soft, while the Loreal still has the slick feel but is slightly more tacky.  But, the Loreal trumps YSL in pigment, and it still makes my lips look juicy.

For the price, I'd get one of the YSL lipsticks or save it for something else.  I'll keep experimenting and will probably try wearing it over a darker liner.  But hey, it does look really pretty in your purse if that's something you fancy...


  1. Well you can't exactly compare the pigmentation of the shade you got to the 2 l'oreal ones which are noticeably darker shades. Clearly Undress Me was meant as a less pigmented shade when compared to other shades in the line...

  2. Hey Leslie! The image wasn't intended to compare similarity of shades. The shade I bought was the lightest in the range, but the swatch photo online showed much more pink and pigmented. The texture and finish was similar to the other products in the photo I swatched to give others an idea of how it appears in-person. Ultimately, I ended up returning it since I didn't think the pigmentation was worth the money!

    Thanks for reading!
