What Is Lip Oil?

You have definitely heard of lip gloss or lipstick, but have you heard of lip oil? Lip oil is exactly what it sounds like, a product with a high concentration of natural oils, designed to moisturise and plump your lips. 

As well as moisturising your lips in the winter months, the best lip oil will leave your lips with an amazing shine, similar to a lip gloss but with a much thinner, less sticky consistency, making it the perfect lip product for any occasion. 

What’s The Difference Between Lip Oil & Lip Balm?

Now you know what lip oil is, you might be wondering what the difference is between lip oil and balm. Lip balms usually contain wax or petroleum jelly and are amazing at moisturising our lips. They have a thicker formula than lip oils which sometimes leaves us feeling the need to often reapply.

The best lip oils are thinner in consistency and give longer lasting moisture, meaning we don’t feel the need to reapply often and our lips can stay hydrated all day. They leave your lips looking plump and naturally glossy.

4 Incredible Benefits Of Lip Oil

Lip oils can be used for practically any occasion and the best lip oils have some amazing benefits at the same time. 


  • Natural Ingredients: Lip oils typically use natural ingredients, such as natural olive oil or natural safflower oil to hydrate your lips, providing extra nourishment.
  • Less Sticky: Lip oils are a much thinner, smoother consistency than lip gloss or lip balms, meaning they glide onto your lips easily, making them look extra plump.
  • Relieve Dry Lips: The best lip oil will ensure your lips are never dry, cracked or sore, especially in the winter months.
  • Extra Shine: Lip oils can be used over bare lips, or on top of matte lipstick in the place of lip gloss to provide added shine

Safflower Oil: One of the main benefits of safflower oil is that it’s soothing and moisturising for dry skin. It contains vitamin E, which has the ability to lock in moisture, perfect for dry skin, meaning it’s an amazing ingredient for a lip oil!
