All You Need to Know about Lip Oils ...

By Eliza

You’ve heard of oil for your skin and oil for your hair, but it turns out that skincare companies are now selling oils for your lips. If you’re the kind of girl who loves to wear a shiny color on her lips, you are going to love what lip oils can do for you. They are super easy to use and give you the outstanding look and feel you crave when you choose a lip product. Here’s everything you need to know about using lip oils.

1 They Go on like Lip Gloss but Feel Smoother

If I had to choose between lip gloss and lipstick, I would always go with the gloss. I like the shininess and the smooth feel. Lip oils take that to an entirely new level. Experts say that lip oils go on like gloss and give you that shine you crave, but they won’t leave behind dry, parched lips like many glosses do. Perfect!

2 Lip Oils Contain Moisturizing Ingredients

Why do lip oils leave your lips smooth and hydrated? Because they contain more smoothing and nourishing ingredients than your average tube of lip gloss contains. Each time you apply the oil, it infuses your lips with the ingredients, maximizing the results on a daily basis.

3 Some Lip Oils Aren’t True Lip Oils

According to skincare experts, some products don’t have the correct formulation to truly be considered a lip oil, despite being called that on their packaging. It pays to understand the lingo so you can find exactly what you’re looking for. Look for lip oils that list some type of oil as the first ingredient. Jojoba or hazelnut oil are two examples.

4 If You Want Color, Choose a Tinted Lip Oil

You can definitely get a sheer, glossy tube of clear lip oil, but if you prefer some color on your pucker, you can definitely find tinted lip oils too. They come in a wide range of color options and give you just the right amount of coverage without being too light or too bright. Subtle color is the name of the game here and I think you are going to love it.

5 You Don’t Need to Use Gallons to Reap the Benefits

Like skin or hair oils, you don’t need to use a ton to get the results you want. You won’t need to use your lip oil any more often than your traditional gloss or lipstick. Using it in exactly the same way gives you the color you want while also enhancing the look and feel of your lips due to the ingredients the oil contains.

6 Many Lip Oils Are Long Wearing so You Won’t Need to Reapply All the Time

The greatest thing about lip oils is that color lasts for a really long time, according to many testers of the products. As the oil absorbs into your lips, the color stays behind as a sort of stain on your skin, leaving your lips a lovely voluptuous color that is super hydrated at the same time. Perfect!

7 You Can Find Lip Oils for Any Budget

Because lip oils are having a moment, many lip product manufacturers are jumping on the bandwagon and releasing their own versions. That means you can find them in any price range so you won’t have to break the bank to give lip oils a try.
