ELLE 5ves: Why lip oils and lip glosses are my latest obsession!


Hey gorgeous! If you’re tired of heavy, matte lipsticks and crave something light and fun, join the club! I’ve traded in my liquid lipsticks for the sheer comfort of lip oils and glosses, and I’m never looking back.

Just like Serena Van Der Woodsen said, “Lipsticks last longer, but gloss is more fun!” These glossy wonders make my lips look plump and feel oh-so-comfy all day. Whether I’m off to brunch or a fancy event, lip oils and glosses adapt beautifully, giving me that perfect, polished look with minimal effort. Plus, they’re often made with skin-caring ingredients – so they are a twofer.

Ready to shine? Here are my top picks for a natural, glamorous finish that’ll make you fall in love with gloss all over again!

Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer

This Universal Lip Luminizer delivers explosive shine and is super hydrating. One swipe of the Gloss Bomb leaves my lips looking instantly fuller and smoother. The non-sticky formula is super shiny and has an addictive peach-vanilla scent you just can’t get enough of.  An ultimate, gotta-have-it lip gloss that feels as good as it looks.

Maybelline New York Lifter Gloss

The Maybelline New York New Lip Gloss drenches lips with hydrating shine for a fuller, lifted look and rewinds the time in the process. The Hyaluronic-infused formula visibly smoothens the lip surface and enhances lip contour while plumping my lips and giving me a much fuller and more moisturised plump look.

Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Tinted Lip Oil

Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Tinted Lip Oil combines a sheer, hydrating formula with a stain that stays even after the oil is absorbed.

Diam Beauty Love Potion Lip Oil

The Diam Beauty Love Potion Lip Oil has become my beauty must-have with its luxurious blend of nourishing oils that leave my lips feeling velvety smooth and deeply hydrated.

Kay Beauty Hydrating Lip Oil Gloss

The name itself mentions hydration. The Kay Beauty Hydrationg Lip Oil Gloss keeps my lips moisturized and looking plump, while the glossy finish adds a touch of sophistication to any makeup look.

As beauty standards continue to evolve, I find comfort and joy in knowing that I’ve found my beauty staple in lip oils and glosses.
