The historical cold temperatures we've experienced this week have taken a serious toll on my lips – it feels slightly suicidal to wear anything other than lip balm for fear of further chapping and discomfort. In hopes of mending my dry lips I set off to Sephora this past weekend in search of the Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil. I've heard so many rave reviews about this luxury lip oil, but given my luck it was of course sold out.
After speaking with a few of the staff members about alternative options I was pointed in the direction of the YSL Volupté Tint-In-Oil ($35), a revolutionary new lip tint, which is suspended in a deep conditioning oil. I had a blast swatching these lip products – all eight shades apply as a transparent, clear oil and gradually produce a tint once they hit the skin. Too cool! I ended up purchasing the shade Oh My Gold, a beautiful, yet subtle pink that is packed with gold shimmer. It's a great shade for every day wear as it truly enhances your natural lip colour without overpowering the rest of your makeup. Plus, the YSL Volupté Tint-In-Oil lip products of course feel decadent and comfortable on the lips given that they've been formulated with apricot kernel oil, coriander fruit oil, jojoba seed oil, and possiflora edulis seed oil. I also have a major crush on the exclusive applicator this product features, which easily forms to lips to ensure the most precise application every time. At this point I'm completely unsure how I'm going to summon enough will power to control myself from purchasing the seven remaining shades. Send help. :|
