Oil it up

YSL Volupte Tint-In Oil Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil

The makeup and beauty world is pro at new releases. It seems like every week there is a product launch to get exited about. And a few months ago my lip product addiction got fed with the introduction of a whole new concept. Drum roll please….. LIP OILS! Oils have had their moment for quite some time when it comes to skincare and they are now making a hit into the makeup world.

Everything about this new concept I like. I am not a huge fan of lip glosses. I often find them to wash out my lip colour and feel too sticky. Lip oils thought have found a regular spot in my everyday makeup routine. The pros you might ask? They are hydrate my lips just like a lip balm would, make them look super duper plump (oulalaaaa) and are in no way sticky. It actually feels like velvet (if that can even be a thing).

My verdict you might have guest is the following: they are amazing. They are the perfect hybrid of a moisturizing balm and a shinny lip gloss. I can’t ask for more!

The two that have found their way into my drawers are the Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil – you can buy in most PJC – and YSL Volupte Tint-In Oil – sold in La Baie and Sephora. The first will give you a clear and natural finish when the latter will offer you a tad bit of colour – there is quite a few shades to choose from!

Obsessed with lip products like I am? Lip oils is the next thing you need to try. Trust me.
