14 Of The Best Lip Oils That Deliver Hydration

You’ve got enough lip balms to last a lifetime, and your matte liquid lipstick collection is vast enough to rival Kylie Jenner’s, but trust us when we say that no make-up bag is complete without a lip oil.

Hydrating like a balm, shiny like a gloss, and often with a hint of colour, lip oils are the ultimate hybrid product for chapped lips. ‘They’re the perfect modern way to get that gorgeous high shine finish that is wearable throughout the day’, says Amy Conway, Global Pro Artist at Bobbi Brown. ‘The new formulas available condition lips instantly and over time: the lips don’t have glands to product moisture itself so they help combat the driest area of skin.’

Not only are they nourishing, but versatile too. Amy suggests working them into prepped (exfoliated) lips for a soft hydrated look, or build up for a super glossy finish. ‘So many of the formulas have a tint of colour built into them which can be used alone, or to refresh your favourite lip colours throughout the day.’ They’re also great for wearing on top of a matte lip to give it a boost of much-needed moisture. You’ll find that the best lip oils contain a host of nourishing ingredients such as rosehip, sweet almond and jojoba oils to care and soothe peeling lips.

Given the hydrating qualities of lip oils, it goes without saying that you might need to re-apply after that fourth cup of coffee. But unlike a liquid lipstick, these sheer formulas don’t require steady hands or precision. Simply swipe and go!

Gisou Honey Infused Lip Oil – £24
