The New Lip Protectors

The first thing you need to know about lips oils is that they’re beauty’s Next Big Thing. These are probably the most exciting innovation we’ve clapped our jaded eyes on in an age. We don’t have oil glands in our lips, so it makes sense that for deep down nourishment and protecting your pout, an oil based treatment’s gonna help.

The second thing you need to know is, don’t be scared. Texture wise, there’s nothing really oily about these babies. They’re thicker than the moniker implies, so they’ll absorb into your kisser, not roll off it.

And the third? Well, that’s exactly what’s on offer, along with where to find it – so in no particular order, here’s the lowdown on our favourite three.

Hourglass No. 28 Lip Treatment Oil

One of the first lip oils to market, this is a high-end treat and no mistake. Press down on the 24-karat-gold tip (yes, really) to dispense a rich, colourless blend of 14 essential oils, no less, along with a further 10 plant oils. The resulting product makes an ideal night-time treatment to keep lips soft, plumped up and flake-free throughout winter.

Shop it here.

Clarins Instant Light?Lip Comfort Oil

Two versions of this launched with Clarins? spring collection: the permanent Honey (yellow in the bottle, transparent on the lips) and the softly tinted Raspberry, which is limited edition. Infused with oils of hazelnut, raspberry and jojoba, these sold out immediately – but you can add your name to the wait list, here.

 

YSL Volupt? Tint-In-Oil

Available in six shades, these beautifully packaged tinted lip oils are a blend of five nourishing oils, including apricot kernel, macadamia, coriander fruit, jojoba and passion flower. Designed to bring light and luminosity to the lips, the effect is youthful, pretty and sheer; these are the perfect marriage of colour and care.

Shop it here.
