Tinted balms are one of my favorite beauty products. They apply quickly and look natural even when they’re a darker color. They really pull together a minimal makeup day. Recently, I decided to splurge on a more high-end balm and purchased the Yves Saint Laurent Volupté Tint-in-Balm in the shade Dare Me Plum. This can be purchased from Sephora for $34.
So, in retrospect, $34 is super pricey for a lip balm, but I ended up really really liking this one! It glides on so easily, and it has this amazing pomegranate scent that I love. This shade is a dark berry, but since it’s a balm, the pigmentation is very sheer so it looks like a very natural berry as if you just ate a berry-flavored Popsicle. It doesn’t last very long, but I don’t think I can fault it too much for that since balms are naturally not very long lasting. I don’t mind having to reapply so often since it’s so easy and glides on evenly and smells amazing. Overall, I’m glad I splurged on this one, although I suspect I won’t repurchase this one when it runs out since the tint lasts for such a short time compared to the Dior Addict balms, which I also love. The Dior balms are less moisturizing but the color does last longer, so I’ll probably stick to them in the future.
