YSL Volupté Tint-In-Balm

I have always admired Yves Saint Laurent's beautiful packaging from afar, never thinking I would ever take the plunge and actually by something from the brand. However the January sales presented me with a opportunity to treat myself, after much back and forth I must add, I finally decided to go for it.

As someone who has dealt with chronically dry lips for a few years now, I find myself hesitating to try new lip products. I always opt for the moisturising formulas and even then I make sure to be careful and always have lip balm on hand in case my lips begin to feel dry. This product is pretty much everything I look for in a lip product, it's pretty to look at, comfortable on the lips and gives me a bit of colour to liven up my face.

The colour I picked up is 11 Play Me Fuchsia​, an everyday cool-toned pink.

I found this lip balm lasted somewhere between 3-4 hours (that is when I wasn't eating or constantly drinking), which is normal for any kind of lip balm. It is not the most moisturising lip balm I have tried, I am I die hard fan of Elizabeth Arden's Eight Hour Cream and if my lips get particularly bad this is what I turn to. However, this is a great hybrid if you want some slight colour and and moisture.

I purchased this lip balm for 188 SEK (roughly £16.80) from the Feelunique website. It usually retails for £28, so I think that was a pretty good deal. (I should also add that its is currently on sale on the Feelunique.com at 15% off)
