I remember when I first encountered lip oil. It reminded me of a lip gloss, only it's focused on keeping the pout nourished (like a lip balm, I guess?). I've been seeing girls loving lip oils in my circle and in my social media feeds. If you're curious, scroll down to know more about the skincare-makeup hybrid.
What is lip oil anyway?
A lip oil marries the benefits of a lip balm and a lip gloss: You get a juicy soft pout, without the sticky feel. A lip oil is usually loaded with nourishing oils (like jojoba, hazelnut, macadamia, and other oils) that condition dry, chapped lips. Some lip oils even have a hint of color to give a beautiful tint to the lips.
TL;DR: A lip oil could be a great staple in your makeup bag whether you are working on-site or from home.
Now that I've probably gotten you hooked on lip oils, here are some that I have tried and tested!
