The Next Big Thing For Lips
You know those shiny and lightly stained lips we've been seeing on Instagram and our favorite stars that you've always wanted to copy but can't? Apparently, they can be achieved using lip oils.
What do we like about lip oils? They are easy to apply and most of them have moisturizing properties, unlike lip stains which can be a bit drying. Lip oils also fit so well into this generation's I'm-too-cool-to-wear-makeup-but-I-still-do vibe.
Milk Makeup is for cool and low maintenance girls and they're in on the lip oil action! Their version is one that gives a long lasting stain. Oh, and the Oil Lip Stain has Vitamin E, too, plus Milk Makeup is cruelty free.

This was one of the first lip oils in the market so it's no surprise that the YSL Tint-in-Oil has won many awards. It practically fuses with your lip and looks so natural. The colors are subtle while retaining the candy-like look that lip oils are known for.

It's too bad that Lancome never brought this to the Philippines while they still had stores here. The Juicy Shaker looks like a cocktail shaker and it kinda smells like a cocktail. And you do have to shake the bottle before opening it.

But it feels so good, almost comforting, on the lips. It has the most varied selection among all the lip oils in the market.
Asia got lucky this one because this is the only continent where MAC Cosmetics released its lip oil collection, which consists of four shades. It looks like a lip gloss but it's not. It's not sticky, tacky or overly shiny and we love how there's a yellow one amidst the red, purple and pink lip oils.
