It’s officially summer, and the dry heat is going to suck everything dry for the next couple of months. And your lips will feel it the most. It’s a horrible feeling when your lips are dry and cracked, and you can’t even smile properly. If you pick at them, they will bleed and make the situation even more painful.
While lip balms solve the problem to a certain extent, they don’t last very long. And they’re kinda boring. A lip gloss, no matter how great, might feel too heavy on your lips. You also have to consider how often your hair is going to get stuck on your sticky lips if it’s windy outside. That’s just gross. Both have major downsides. Enter lip oils!
The perfect combination of hydration and aesthetic appeal, lip oils are what you need if your lips are dry. Here are the ones that you need to try today.
1. Waterflower Magic Lip Oil by Kiko Milano
A nourishing lip oil with cornflower and pink helichrysum petals, Kiko Milano’s Waterflower Magic is a great way to keep your lips hydrated. It even adds a tinge of shine to your lips for a dewy look. The floral fragrance is also a pleasant addition to this product. The applicator is easy to use even on the go. This lip oil is ideal for those who are always rushing out of the house and don’t have the time to indulge in a beauty routine every day.
Price: INR 1150
2. Kiehl’s Love Oil For Lips
This lightweight oil is a blend of coconut oil, moringa oil and Acerola cherry extract, a product known to be rich in anti-oxidants. According to Kiehl’s, this lip oil has the shine of a gloss with the benefits of an oil. Because it has coconut oil, this lip oil will really help chapped lips. So if your lips are dry and cracked, give this lip oil a shot for sure.
Love Oil For Lips comes in four shades – Neon Pink, Botanical Blush, Apothecary Cherry, and Midnight Orchid. If you don’t want any colour, there is an untinted version of this lip oil too.
One of the most awaited lip oils, Love Oil For Lips is scheduled to launch in May 2019.
3. Pout It by Indulgeo
As part of a collaboration with ace makeup artist Namrata Soni, Indulgeo has created a moisturising, plumping lip oil called Pout It. Putting lipstick on dry lips is mostly disastrous. But with Pout It, Indulgeo claims to have achieved the key to flawless lipstick application and long-lasting hydration. To make it feel truly luxurious, this lip oil has been infused with 24K gold flakes.
Apart from the gold, this lip oil also has cinnamon oil, which is known to be a natural plumping solution, argan oil, jojoba oil, evening primrose oil, and an infusion of Jamaican coffee beans and French vanilla pods. Sounds delicious, doesn’t it? It also has unrefined beeswax which adds to the moisturising abilities of this lip oil.
