YSL Tint in Oil

I’ve always been a huge fan of YSL lip products. They tend to release unique formulas before all the other brands and I adore their signature fruity, mango scent. When they announced the release of the new ‘Tint in Oil’ however, I wasn’t too excited about it. Something about lip oil isn’t that appealing to me, and combined with colour, it doesn’t sound like it would be a winning combination.
How wrong I was. The texture of these is simply divine, almost like an oil-gloss hybrid. It’s not overly slippy or greasy on the lips, but still has a soft, nourishing element to it that only an oil could have. The packaging is really pretty, a further extension of the Rouge Volupte design that incorporates the iconic YSL logo and metallic finish...

The scent is the same delicious mango based fragrance, which is always a winner in my books. What’s really unusual about this formula though, is the colour element. They’ve managed to combine the glossy, light oil texture with a slow developing tint. These apply VERY sheerly (the lighter ones appearing almost clear) but after a few minutes the colour develops and gives a tint to the lips. The gloss itself lasts on my lips for an hour or two, but the tint really stains and if you apply a few layers you can really build up a vibrant colour. I’m not normally a huge fan of stains (or oils, as I mentioned before) but I really love this gloss and have been using it a lot over the past few weeks.
It is available in 8 colours. The lighter ones do come up a lot sheerer, so it’s worth giving them a good test in store to see how they develop on your skin tone (the palest ones may not really show up at all and therefore may be entirely skip-able depending on your personal preference for colour) My favourite shade is the one shown, Cherie my Cherie which is one of the brightest colours in the range.
It’s quickly found it’s way into my everyday makeup bag and I would firmly recommend it to anyone looking for an easy, carefree way to incorporate a little spring colour into their makeup!

The YSL Tint in Oil glosses are available on counters and online (HERE) now, priced at £23.50 each (or $32 in the US).

  3. I love YSL lip products, although your right the sound of this doesn't appeal to me. I might just give it a try though! Love this blog, honestly my favourite to read!

  4. Not to sure how I feel about this. I do love lip stains, but the colour you've gone on maybe a little to sheer for my liking. I'd be interested in seeing a review on the bolder shades. Oil?! Not to sure how I feel about that. x

  20. I'm so glad you've done a review on this! I was in Sephora the other day and I looked at them for a solid ten minutes, deciding if I would like it or not. I applied it to the back of my hand and wasn't sure. However, that color looks absolutely stunning on you, and I think I may just have to try this!

  21. I'm so intrigued by this recent new trend for lip oils. I've always used oils under my lip balm for added moisture (coconut oil under nuxe reve de miel is insanely good FYI), but I feel weird about using oil in a colour product. I just can't imagine it working! I might have to give this a go seeing as you were skeptical too. The colour looks lovely!

  22. These look like lovely lip products! xx

  23. I've been eyeing this gloss since its release since lip stains, which are normally drying, would be suspended in a moisturizing oil. I was apprehensive because I'd be concerned that the overly moisturizing element would cause the pigment to bleed outside the lips. Do you find this to be the case?

    You also mentioned that it felt nourishing on the lips, does it feel nourishing once the oil/gloss fades? I sometimes find extremely emollient lipsticks feel really great upon initial application but then they leave my lips a dry flakey mess. And because of the emollient formula, the pigment fades within an hour or two necessitating reapplication and starting the dry and flakey lips circle all over again (I am looking at you YSL Rouge Volupte! [Shameless Plug: I have an older blog post expanding on this]).

  24. I haven't tried any of these yet, but I've seen them all over the place recently and I'd love to pick one up! I'm not really a matte lip kind of gal as I really like having super hydrated lips 24/7, so this seems like a great route to take for those effortless wash of color days.

  28. This actually sounds like quite an interesting concept! I'm normally not too much into 'regular' lipglosses but I might give these ones a try ... especially because I really like this kind of applicator :D

  30. I've had my eye on these for awhile but am stuck with what color to choose! I will probably end up with this one (or the rose one) just so they show up more. Plus, for those who are Nordstrom Rewards members, its currently Triple Point time at Nordstrom, so its a perfect time to pick something up!! =P

  38. I love the stains on days I don't want to wear too much makeup and lately my lips have been feeling really dry and I think by the sound of it, this seems like the perfect combo for me.

  43. I absolutely adore the YSL lip products, and once I heard about this one it went straight to the top of my wish list. I often use an oil on my lips - especially in the colder months - So having something that would look nice & nourish my lips was always going to be a winner for me. I recently picked up the shade "Undress Me" it's a lovely nudey-pink colour.

  45. Hi Fleur DeForce, I'd like to ask you to take part in my research that I'm doing for my Master's thesis. It's about what influences the relationship between YouTube Stars and their subscribers. There are only 7 questions and it shouldn't take you more than 10 minutes.
    This is the link to the research form: http://goo.gl/forms/tTwUZJ2Ev7 but if you like, I can send you the questions to your e-mail or by message here.
    Your help will be much appreciated...

  56. I saw RachhLoves have these on her channel and thought they seemed a little off. I don't like the slippery feeling that oils leave on my lips but these seem too good to pass up. I might have to hunt them down and give them a try. Thanks for the review.

  60. The packaging of these is absolutely stunning, but not sure I would want to shell out more than £20 for a sheer wash of colour. If I did I would definitely go for one of the brighter shades I think! X
