Lip Oils Are The Beauty Products You Need This Year | Clozette

Even though glossy lips are all the rage right now, there's one reason why many ladies are still hesitant to sport this trend. It's because wearing lip gloss means dealing with that icky, sticky feeling. Not to mention that you would need to reapply often to maintain the colour. But the good news is, these woes will soon be a thing of the past. Introducing our new obsession: lip oils. They've got the longevity of a stain, the nourishing properties of a balm, and the pretty shine of a gloss but none of its stickiness. Sounds like a good deal? Here are five of the best lip oils that should be on your radar.

Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil


Made with a unique fusion of plant-based oils, this lip oil will give your puckers a serious dose of hydration. One swipe of this product is all you need to coat your lips with a non-greasy, sheer shine. If you love a little flavour in your gloss, you'd be delighted to know that this one leaves a subtle sweet taste.

Hourglass Nº 28 Lip Treatment Oil

USD44 (

Want a lip oil that feels super luxurious? The Hourglass lip treatment is the one for you. From its 24-karat gold lip applicator to its indulgent blend of 14 botanical essential oils and anti-ageing active ingredients including Saliporine-8, Volulip™ and Viamerine, this lip oil is opulence in a bottle. 

Sisley Phyto-Lip Delight


An oldie but still a goodie, Sisley's Phyto-Lip Delight is one of the first to introduce us to the concept of lip gloss and lip care in one. It starts with a gel-balm texture, but upon contact with the lips, it transforms into oil and unleashes its nourishing properties while giving you a light sheer tint. 

Lancôme Juicy Shaker Pigment Infused Bi-Phased Lip Oil

USD22 (

Unlike the other lip oils that only provide a hint of colour, this Lancôme Juicy Shaker pigmented lip oil will give you that soft, glossy ombre look that's so popular right now. It contains a cocktail of five nourishing oils: peach kernel oil, sweet almond oil, apricot oil, cranberry oil and muscat rose oil. To use this, all you have to do is shake the bottle to mix the formula and dab (not swipe) the product lightly on your lips. 



Nothing beats a red lipstick when it comes to being a classic. From casual playfulness to effortless elegance, it captures the same essence and versatility of a little black dress. But if we're being honest, finding the 'one' can be a bit intimidating because there are so many variations and finishes of red out in the market. Thankfully, Shu Uemura himself stepped up to create the perfect Asian red in the form of RD163

Tested on approximately 3,000 Asian women to ensure the compatibility and universality of the shade and the formula, the brand dubs RD163 as the perfect red lip that will match Asian features and skin tones flawlessly. Coming in a line-up of three textures, take your pick among the satin-type Rouge Unlimited, the velvety Rouge Unlimited Matte or the smooth and glossy Rouge Unlimited Lacquer Shine.  But that's not all. We also got a hold of the Re:set Tint Remover & Lip Conditioner that will take care of long-lasting lippies — even tough tints — effortlessly while leaving your lips soft and supple, ready for your next colour adventure.

Ready to unlock your beauty? Watch us unbox these new picks and give the RD163 a swatch by checking out the video above. 

While we admire the on-fleek precise lines and bold elements of the typical trendy makeup, sometimes we want to sport something that's a little more subtle and wearable. Enter Korean makeup looks with their signature soft, cutesy vibe. They're basically no-makeup makeup looks with hints of shimmer and bright colour. If you love this type of makeup, here are some ideas from the Clozette Community that you can try.
