We’ve always had a love-hate relationship with lip glosses. We love the shine, the slippery feel and the plumping effect. What we don’t love is when that shine leaves a weird residue, the slipperiness turns to major stickiness and the plumping effect turns into shriveled skin.
If you’re on the same page as Us and still searching for that holy grail gloss, you’ll definitely want to stick around for this. This popular ILIA lip product is basically part balm, part gloss and part oil. It takes everything we love about lip products and combines it all into one magical formula that has reviewers raving. It’s tinted too!
This anti-sticky lip oil is as much skincare as it is makeup. Its key ingredient is hyaluronic acid, so it’s meant to nourish your lips rather than just cover them up. The formula actually contains two molecule sizes of the popular moisturizing ingredient to help it really sink deep into the skin, keeping lips plump and supple from within. The results? Your lips may be left “soft, smooth and anything but sticky”!
This lip oil also includes a blend of botanicals including meadowfoam seed oil and salicornia herbacea extract added into the formula to really up the hydration levels, protect lips and help you “experience a surge of smooth.” On top of that, you have that pretty wash of sheer color that looks natural but powerful. Wear alone for a “your lips but better” (and shinier) type of look, or intensify things by swiping it over another lip color. It’s especially great for using over lipsticks that normally dry you out!
Over 800 reviewers have left this game-changing lip oil positively glowing ratings. They say it has “the perfect consistency” and love that it’s “smooth like a lip balm but has that pretty sheen like a gloss to make your lips stand out.” They say their lips were “instantly moisturized” when they applied it, and one shopper who lives in a dry desert region even named it their “all time favorite lip product.” Reviewers agree that this is a fabulous choice for a “beauty minimalist” who still wants to make a statement with their look, and they also love the scent! It’s a natural-based ginger yuzu flavor, making applying this lip oil a real treat!
This top-rated lip oil is vegan, cruelty-free, silicone-free, gluten-free, paraben-free and nanoparticle-free. It’s currently available in six colors: Only You, a neutral nude, Linger, a berry mauve, Tahiti, a burnt coral, Saint, a rustic orange, Maybe Violet, a soft lavender and Petals, a tropical pink. Having trouble picking a favorite? The good news is, whichever one you choose, you pretty much can’t go wrong!
