The Volupte Plump-in-Color (C$45 for 0.12 oz) is a collection of multitasking lip balm that offers an immediate volumizing effect with a rich and nourishing texture. I think initially they were launched two years ago and they have continued with collection while adding new limited edition shades each season, yet not to forget it is one of the best-selling lip balms. These Lip Balms are infused with coconut oil to keep the lips nourished, hyaluronic acid which hydrates and locks the moisture for a smooth and soft looking lips while the peppermint oil provides a cooling sensation for a fresh looking lips. They come in 8 beautiful shades to wear and have the cutest little heart shape in the centre of the lip balm. I got to test three shades from the brand which includes:
- Mad Nude which is a nice warm nude shade with a universal under tone, the color is undetectable on the lips and gives a nice shine.
- Insane Pink is a beautiful bright fuscia shade that really brightens up the look.
- Exposing Coral is a gorgeous true coral shade.
The texture of these balms are soft and carries that jelly like feel into it. It has a sheer and transparent finish, if you liked the Dior Lip Glow Reviver Lip Balms I would suspect you would love these too. I found you can see your natural lip colour with nude shades while the deeper and brighter shades carries a good amount of colors to cover your lips nicely. The packaging carries the iconic lipstick YSL lipstick with silver finish. I’m Balm lover girl, I love the nourishing emollient feel and its super easy to apply while it adds a very fresh look to your over all look.
Since the coverage is sheer, it will look different on you depending on your natural lip color. I also found that the peppermint oil gives a really noticeable sensation, especially when you go back and forth longer with the balms, I would suggest to try it and see how you like the feeling of it.
As a lip balm lover, I loved the formula and the luxurious look of these lip balms. The presentation is absolutely amazing and Insane pink is a favorite shade of mine. I love to keep my lips neutral and rosy especially during the day and I find these are great. As many of you know I love to carry my lip balms since it rescue my look at any time and any where. I have already threw them in my purse.
At the end I truly love them, I think every one should check them once you’re at Sephora or at the YSL beauty counter. Since Valentines Day is just around the corner and I think these makes a perfect gift to your loved ones. You can find the YSL Volupte Plum-in-Color Lip Balm at all YSL counters now and you can also find them online and in store at Sephora and Nordstrom.
