Between lipstick, lipgloss, lip balm and lip stain, there’s a whole world of lip products at your disposal. But there’s a new addition to the industry and this one is so perfect, you’ll be surprised it hasn’t appeared in your makeup collection sooner. Say hello to lip oil.
Now given the rise in popularity of cleansing oils, lip oil shouldn’t seem all that scary. It’s a peculiar texture, sure, but don’t knock it ’til you try it. Lip oils are the quintessential double-duty beauty product: each oil is as hydrating as a balm, but also has the longevity of a lip stain. There’s also no stickiness that’s prevalent in lip gloss, which makes lip oil a real MVP in the lip department.
Looking for a great all-around oil to try? I love the Hourglass N° 28 Lip Treatment Oil for its mix of essential and plant oils–it’s basically a great herbal smoothie for your lips. For a more budget-friendly option, look no further than Yes to Coconut Cooling Lip Oil, which will quickly become a must-have for the summer months.
