YSL Volupte Tint-In-Balm

I love lip balm (now re-read that with the voice of Anchorman's Brick Tamland saying "I love lamp"). But I do, I love balm. Ever since high-school I have not been able to leave the house without a balm. But compared to those good old days of throwing a pot of Carmex into my school bag, I have ventured on to newer (and this time much more expensive) products. I love a little designer item. But I would rather purchase an item that I am going to use everyday rather than a designer piece that I will only pull out on special occasions. So I found the perfect balance in the YSL tint-in-balms.

These little tubes of luxury are packaged in the beautiful silver YSL bullets, featuring the gold logo over the colour of the balm inside. They have a nice weight to them and the cap clicks shut so you don't have to worry about rogue lids and smudged product ruining the inside of your handbag.

The product inside is also intricately designed with a central lip-shaped area of moisture-boosting ingredients such as jojoba oil and apricot butter. The surrounding area provides the unique hue which will give your lips a sheer tint on application.

I purchased three colours: Shade 1 Dream Me Nude- a perfect everyday pink/brown nude. 
Shade 3 Call Me Rose- a subtle, rosy hue, although the bullet appears peach
Shade 11 Play Me Fuchsia- a bright, raspberry pink for adding the perfect pop of colour.

I personally love the finish they provide however if you prefer a matte liquid-lipstick, this product is probably not for you. The formula leaves a lightly coloured and shiny, plump finish to your lips. It feels very moisturising but does require regular application if you are drinking or eating.

So if you are in the market to splash your cash on something a little bit fancy, I would highly recommend the YSL Volupte Tint-In-Balms (available from MECCA, Myer and David Jones).
