I have wanted to own a YSL lipstick forever, their cases are exquisite and so beautiful. Like little pieces of art. I just have yet to find that right YSL shade in the right formula for my preferences. The Yves Saint Laurent Volupte Tint-In-Balm is a new formula and the little lip shaped cores drew me into grabbing Dream Me Nude. Details per Nordstrom:
Dream Me Nude is described as a neutral mauve. That’s accurate. It has faint shimmer visible in sunlight, however it’s not really noticeable on the lips. The inner lip shaped core is a sheer bright pink. This smells like pomegranate. The color payoff is very sheer, a tint for sure. Dream me Nude adds a mauve pink tint sans shimmer with a glossy sheen. It’s not sticky at all and is very hydrating. Like an oil based balm except very thin in texture. It’s not heavy feeling at all.
Due to the nature of the product I do have to reapply it every hour or so. Pretty typical for this type of product for me. There is only downside I found to this product. Like the Tint-In-Oil, this turns a bright raspberry shade on me by the end of the day. Like it has the same color enhancing, pH adjusting, color changing lip balm ingredients. If I wear it once it stays true to color, if I apply eight times that day it turns a brighter berry by the end of the day. I personally hate cool toned berries, mauves, magenta, raspberry shades or anything similar. They’re just not my cup of tea. So, if you don’t mind that color changing aspect and like the previous mentioned shades, plus the glossy tint style formula then by all means check it out.
Did anyone else experience this color change on them? I’m wondering if it was just me.
