It’s winter so we need all the help we can get when it comes to keeping our lips moisturized. We load up on rich lip balms, but they aren’t the only option. Lip oils are an underrated product category that you should be paying more attention to. Lip oils deliver lots of moisture and a bit of shine. However, unlike a lip gloss, they aren’t seriously sticky. You can choose a regular clear lip oil, but there are also numerous options that add a pop of color to your pout. They’re perfect for when you want something fancier than a basic lip balm.
Take a look at the lip oils that will keep your pout moisturized:
This lippy has a gel-like consistency that gives your kisser lots of shine and hydration. It is formulated with plant oils and has a delicate scent that you will like as much as your favorite Lip Smacker.
This is one of the products that helped put lip oils on the map. It is a lip color tint suspended in a nourishing oil. It contains four essential oils, and it is lightweight and non-sticky. As soon as you use the unique brush applicator, you will be hooked.
This is a balm-in-oil formula that will help keep chapped winter lips at bay. The package makes the color look intense, but it actually goes on sheer. Think of it as a non-sticky lip gloss.
This lip and cheek duo is inspired by Josie Maran‘s best-selling Argan Infinity Intensive Creamy Oil. It adds a pop of color but doesn’t skimp on moisture. Don’t worry, it isn’t greasy.
This is a good option if you are a fan of solid lip balms. The formula contains passion fruit seed oil and Vitamin E to gives your lips plenty of moisture. It also deposits a good amount of color and shine.
Remember a few years ago when lip-plumping glosses were everywhere? This is the lip oil version of those. It is a 99%-natural cinnamon and Resveratrol-infused lippy that hydrates, adds shines and plumps your lips with each spicy swipe.
This is a deeply nourishing lip treatment, but if you want a bit of color, it is available in Hourglass’ signature iconic shade. The lip oil is enriched with 14 essential oils and three active ingredients, and it is dispensed through a 24 karat, antibacterial, gold-plated tip. Who’s fancy now?
If you’re just looking for a moisturizing lippy and aren’t concerned with color, try this one. It is formulated with virgin coconut oil, olive oil and eucalyptus to provide a pleasant cooling sensation. Bonus: It’s 99% natural.
