If you follow my blog closely you might have seen Yves Saint Laurent coming by many times. They are one of my favorite cosmetic brands because 1) their packaging is goals 2) they always invent something that you must have! I had to hop on the Volupté Liquid Color Balm after I’ve seen several Instagram posts about these lip balms. We have seen many liquid lip balms coming by but I personally think that this is one of the best I’ve seen these days! A must and a beautiful product that you need right now.
In collaboration with Notino.nl I had the opportunity to pick something from their webshop. It was not difficult for me to make a decision. Yves Saint Laurent has been a favorite of mine for a long time now, I also picked something from their during my previous collaboration with Notino.nl because they always launch something exciting that I can’t take me eye of it.
Notino.nl has a great variety of products. You can find literally almost all the brands you have been dreaming of. The most fantastic thing is that their products are original and sometimes cheaper than in your local store. I can guarantee you that you purchase an original and excellent product when you order there.
During these hot summer days you still want to look fabulous, but we can all understand that you want to wear less makeup as you can. I will tell you that I didn’t wear liquid lipstick for more than a month because I simply just can’t in this heat! I prefer grabbing my lip balms because they are easy and no fuzz when you just had a drink or dinner.
That’s why this liquid col color balm is so great: see it as a lipstick and nourishing lip balm in one. This lip balm contains soothing shea butter, antioxidant-rich vitamin E, coconut water and jojoba oil that soften lines, enhance lip texture and lock in moisture. At the same time it will give your lips a high shine effect with maximum color pay off. The radiant color and medium coverage makes this lip balm so easy to use and just perfect for every moment of your (summer)day!
I picked the two shades 02 Expose Me Rose and 10 Devour Me Plum. Volupté Liquid Color Balm comes in 12 different shades that are all gorgeous. I have to admit that I had a hard to with picking the shades because I had 6 favorites shades in my basket. Great assortment and there has to be something for everyone.
Expose Me Rose is this gorgeous playful warm nude/pink that really makes me feel young and beautiful (like Lana Del Rey said). It has this very youthful finish when you wear it and if you asked me a year ago to wear this shade, I would said no because it makes me feel childish. Luckily Yves Saint Laurent made this color look so attractive with this amazing nourishing lip balm finish, that this has been my most used lip balm during this summer! Says enough right?
Devour Me Plum is a pretty mauve nude that has a hint of red when you wear it all day. I’m that dark vibe girl, I can feel fabulous when I wear a bold and “in your face” shade. I thought that this color would be more dark but I can totally work with this!
When you think about Yves Saint Laurent you always see their beautiful packaging. Their luxurious style and eye for detail make this brand so popular these days. Everyone has a weakness for pretty items and they totally won this game here!
Their Volupté Liquid Color Balm has the same shape as their other liquid lip products. But there is something different here: the tube is silver with a rose gold ring and it has this cute little mouth print which shows what shade it is. I think the lip beneath the tube makes this product so fun and pretty to have!
When you twist the tube you will find the most adorable lip balm tip you have ever seen! It has the shape of a lip (watch closely: the side with the two bumps are the upper lips). The shape of the tip makes it also very easy to apply the lip balm perfect on your lips and to line them. I always use the bottom lip tip to line my lips and the upper lip to fill them in.
When I first tried it out I was overwhelmed but the delicious sweet (but subtile) scent that escaped from the tube. Oh men, I knew the moment I smelled that lip balm that it would become a favorite of mine. When a lip balm has a nice fragrance I might will finish that one within a month. That’s how addictive it can be!
It wasn’t that hard to apply the liquid color balm on the lips. The texture is smoother than a lipgloss but not thicker as a liquid lipstick. When applying it on the lips you can feel the tip glide on your lips. It feels amazing and it doesn’t make my lips feel sticky nor dry! The great formulated lip balm with all his amazing ingredients makes it feel nourished.
The coverage is medium, something you would expect from a lip balm. Because of the liquid texture you might get some gaps on your lips when you apply it. It doesn’t cover your lips instantly but when you squeeze your lips for a second it will look just as perfect. After all, it is liquid lip balm that doesn’t look dry on the lips. You can always reapply!
Don’t worry when you get a drink or sandwich! This liquid color balm is super long-lasting and will stay all day on your lips without creating that weird-looking “your lips are lined but everything on the inside is blanc”. You well get some stains on your cup when you get a zip but your lips won’t look any different from during application time.
Thanks to the nourishing ingredients and the high shine with a boost of color, I found one of my favorite lip products this summer! The balm takes care of my dry lips during the summer, especially when the sun is shining all day. It keeps them supple and healthy looking. When I drink or eat the liquid color balm doesn’t transfer a lot and keeps them look fabulous the nest few hours. Overall, I think that this liquid color balm is a must for people who want to apply something on their lips and don’t think about it anymore during the day!
This liquid color balm doesn’t need high maintenance when you use it. Just apply it during the morning, and when I leave work at 5PM I apply a little bit on the inside of my lips and squeeze them for a second. Tada, more time left for some online shopping! The colors I’ve picked out are both gorgeous but I think I prefer 02 Expose Me Rose more because it is a shade I wouldn’t wear before but thanks to Yves Saint Laurent I love to use this kind of shade, especially during sunny days.
