Oil-based formulas are having a moment in lipsticks, tints and glosses. From almond and jojoba to cranberry and avocado oil – the type may vary but the benefit remains the same: ultra-hydrating properties that are a saviour for dry lips. The added bonus? Not only do oils add long lasting moisture to parched lips but they also deliver a light, glossy and youthful sheen.
Lane Crawford introduces the trend with a round of up the best oil-based lip products on the beauty scene.
Lancôme Juicy Shaker
A lip oil that doubles as a non-sticky lipstick, gloss and stain in one. Ingredients include deeply nourishing sweet almond, Omega-3 and cranberry oils.
It’s so much fun to use; shaped like a cocktail shaker, the more you shake, the stronger the colour.
Guerlain Gloss D’enfer
Composed of mineral and botanical oils, this high-shine, non-sticky gloss glides over the lips like a veil, guaranteeing a plump, shimmering finish.
Thanks to the design of the applicator, it allows for a strong definition and outline of the lip shape while delivering the perfect amount of gloss every time.
Bobbi Brown Nourishing Lip Colour
A buildable lipstick that allows you to go from a sheer wash of colour to a rich pigmented shine. A luxurious blend of avocado, babassu and jojoba oils deeply hydrate lips and locks in moisture.
The potent formula conditions lips instantly and over time, reduces the appearance of fine lines.
YSL Beauté Rouge Volupté Shine Oil-in-Stick
Made with 65 percent oils, this innovative lipstick delivers luscious colour and luminous shine while actually conditioning lips. The super smooth formula seemingly melts in, providing instant hydration, and all day comfort along with a vibrant pop of colour.
With the addictive signature YSL Beauté mango scent, this lipstick taste as good as it looks.
