From Fail to HG: Updated YSL Volupté Tint-In-Oil Review

I bought the YSL Volupté Tint-In-Oil a little over a month ago in I Rose You 4, and I was sorely disappointed due to its lack of pigment, but I did like that it was moisturizing. (Read the full review here.) I decided to give it another shot by getting the YSL Volupté Tint-In-Oil in Cherry My Cherie 5 since it looked like a darker color, which would hopefully show up on my lips better, and I love it!

The packaging and applicator is on point, as usual, and this shade has a darker pink ring in the packaging. The applicators and the liquid itself look very similar in the tube. After swatching, you only see a bit of a difference, but as you give it a bit of time, the color becomes much more pronounced.

In the first picture, there is only a slight difference between the two shades, but in the second, you can see that they’re quite different. The color actually shows up on my lips! It is a far cry from the red that you would expect when you think of the word “cherry” or the red implied by the packaging. Instead, it shows up as a bright-ish pink on me, actually quite similar to the color of Dior’s Cheek and Lip Glow.

The other big difference between the two shades is how much of a stain is left behind. The Cherry My Cherie leaves a much more pronounced stain that does change what color my lips look.

I ended up returning this in I Rose You, but I’ve been loving this in Cherry My Cherie! It’s so easy to swipe this on by itself in the mornings when I’m late for class. It goes on really shiny and makes me look put together. About an hour or so later, it fades down to more of a stain rather than a shiny gloss, perfect for when I’m about to eat a late breakfast or lunch, since it won’t fade as easily. During this time, it moisturizes my lips. I can then apply another lipstick right over it later during the day, and even if I forget, there is a lovely bright pink stain.

Have you tried any of these Tint-In-Oils or any other tinted lip oils from other brands that you like?

  1. I saw these in Sephora the other day, but I didn’t even look because my lips are so ‘pigmented’ on their own but I’m so tempted to try them! I might have to check them out!


    1. I guess it really depends on the shade, because I Rose You didn’t show up on mine almost at all haha, but this Cherry one is really nice! I would try some other shades, but it’s too much work for now, since they’re so much of a hit or miss for me.

  2. My current “I’m late for class” lip color is the Dior Addict Lip Glow but I’ve had my eyes on the Pink About Me Tint-In-Oil for a while (it smells soooo good). Great review! You may have just convinced me to bite the bullet 😮


    1. You have a nice blog, as well – followed. Are you currently in Germany? I took German through high school and my first year at Uni, but I’m so rusty haha (but I can understand some of the German on your blog!).

  3. Hey Whitney, I’m glad to hear you have these a second go and now you like it! Cherry My Cherie is definitely much more pigmented in a minute or two! I haven’t really looked into these yet. I’ll see if I can swatch them first!
