Lip Oil 101: How to Choose the Best Lip Oils for Your Needs

While you may know that ChapStick® offers a great lip balm, you may be surprised to learn that ChapStick® also offers lip oils and serums. Using lip oil is a great way to enjoy nutrient-rich moisture, shine and a touch of color. Find tinted lip oils that are great to carry in your backpack, pocket or purse, or try a non-tinted version to enhance your personal lip color.

What is Lip Oil?

You may already be incorporating luscious oils into your routines: from hair care to skin care, oils like Argan, jojoba, and even olive oils are key components to products like hair oil and oil cleansing. But as you may not know, lip care is skin care! Lip oils contain hydrating oils like black currant seed, olive, and sunflower oils to help hydrate dry lips as well as add shine, like a lip gloss.  ChapStick® Total Hydration Vitamin Enriched Lip Oil in Blushed Bronze also contains ingredients including vitamin E, vitamin C, and omegas 3/6/9 for soft, beautiful, healthy-looking lips.

A great benefit to using a  tinted lip oil over a lip gloss is that it is much smoother to put on—rather than experiencing the stickiness that many lip glosses leave behind, lip oil glides on easily. Lip oil replenishes the lip’s moisture while providing the shine that you love.

Is Coconut Oil Good for Lip Gloss?

Coconut oil is often included in lip care products. For example,  ChapStick® Total Hydration Essential Oils lip balms feature 100% naturally sourced ingredients, including coconut oil, sunflower seed oil, and shea butter. These oils provide smooth, healthy-looking lips in a variety of scents and flavors. While lip balm doesn’t offer the same amount of shine as lip oil, you can easily swipe on a lip oil over your lip balm for the ultimate lip hydration duo!

The Best Lip Oil for Your Needs

Whether you are looking for a hint of color or simply a complement to your natural complexion, finding the best lip oil for your needs is easy. Choose from one of ChapStick®’s Total Hydration lip oils in a  variety of colors, or choose a non-tinted lip oil. You can wear these all day, so be sure to carry one with you wherever you go.

Tinted Lip Oils

From  Nearly Nude to Sheer Plum, and everything in-between, you’re sure to find the right shade of lip oil for your look. All of ChapStick®’s tinted lip oils offer sheer color and subtle shine. You’ll enjoy the comfort of hydrating oils with the look of something a little more elegant than swiping on a lip gloss.

Non-Tinted Lip Oils

If you’d prefer a lip oil without the color, then the best lip oil for you will be  non-tinted. You’ll still enjoy the smooth, healthy-looking lips that you want. At night, consider using the ChapStick® Vitamin Enriched Night Serum, perfect for applying right before bed. It has an ultra-moisturizing formulation that works overnight for intense hydration.

No matter what lip oil you choose for the day, the best lip oil for you will come down to whether you want a tinted lip oil or a non-tinted lip oil, and which color you’d like for the day. If you can’t make up your mind, try out a few different shades as the day goes on, depending on your mood!
