5 Lip Oils That Are Better Than Chapstick

Chapped lips and winter go hand-in-hand. And that means that you’re going need a lot of chapsticks and lip balms on deck to help alleviate any dryness and cracking. Traditional chapsticks seem to work for most people, but if you’re looking for something that hydrates AND adds a pop of color, then you should definitely be using a lip oil.

Lip oils have become a hot new beauty essential as they are versatile and help you keep your glam on point. They’re moisturizing, nourishing, tinted and can even help to minimize the appearance of fine line and wrinkles on the mouth. Seriously, they’re straight up magical!

Ready to ditch your chapstick and lip balm for a trendy lip oil? Here are some of our favorites on the market right now:

Looking for a glossy tint that will last all day long? Then Milk Makeup’s Oil Lip Stain is for you! It gives you a high-shine gloss, a long-lasting tint and will keep your lips moisturized and hydrated.

Milk Makeup Oil Lip Stain ($18) 

If its impressive 17-shade range isn’t enough to sell you, then it’s super-soft cushion applicator definitely will be. Choose between a stunning variety of pinks, reds, blues, and purples that will nourish your lips and deliver a non-sticky shine.

Lancôme Juicy Shaker Lip Oil ($22)


COVERGIRL is already your go-to brand for everything makeup related, so it’s no surprise that they have an amazing and hydrating lip oil, too! It has the moisturizing benefits of your typical chapstick, but it offers a gorgeous, sheer tint, too!

COVERGIRL Vitalist Tinted Lip Oil ($6.94) 

This lip oil has a luxurious feel to it. It smooths and comforts the lips, all while plumping them and giving off a high-shine tint of color.

Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil ($26) 

If you want to hop on the lip oil trend without committing to a tinted one, then we recommend YesTo Coconut’s Cooling Lip Oil. This drugstore favorite hydrates chapped, dry lips with nourishing coconut and eucalyptus oils.
