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.
Lip oils? Sounds kind of weird and slightly unnecessary, right? Wrong!
Paving the way for lip oils everywhere with a texture that's both balmy and moisturising, without any of the hair-trapping stickiness of a lip-gloss, Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil started a full on lip oil revolution.
Now you can snag lip oils with subtle tints, packed with pearlescent pigments and filled to bursting with nourishing ingredients, making this beauty trend far from another fad.
In fact, we're pretty obsessed with them, which is why we've rounded up our favourites.
Plump, hydrated and luscious lips, here we come.More
This chic Clarins offering drenches parched lips in a megamix of plant oils to soothe and soften instantly. Each oil, from Honey through to Red Berry, boasts a subtle yet oh-so-pretty tint that has the clever knack of accentuating the natural colour of your lips. The best part? It isn't at all sticky.
When American brand e.l.f landed in the UK, this is the first thing we snapped up. A single swipe veils lips in a barely-there wisp of colour - but don't underestimate the staying power - it's seriously impressive. Packed with vitamin E, this lip oil smooths over dry patches like a dream to leave you with a plumper, more hydrated pout.
