These lip oils feel like you’re wearing nothing but give a glossy pout.

You may have noticed that the trends of yesteryear always seem to get turned on their head at some point. For example, lip looks have swung from matte liquid lipsticks to high-shine glosses and back again.

Every once in a while, a trend emerges that marries two former trends, and that’s where lip oils come in. These lippies channel liquid lipsticks with ranges of pigments while also offering the shine you’d turn to a lip gloss for. And the best part? They’re more comfortable than either option to wear, as they’re neither drying nor sticky.

1. For a protective formula: Dior Addict Lip Glow Oil 

Seal in your lips' moisture with the Dior Addict Lip Glow Oil.

This lip oil from Dior is often sold out on some retailers, likely thanks to the hype it received on TikTok. The lippie is infused with cherry oil to moisturize and protect the lips and it claims to have a non-greasy, non-sticky texture that’s comfortable to wear on its own or under or over a lipstick. It’s available in eight shades ranging from a clear-pink to a deep mahogany.

2. For a punch of color: Bobbi Brown Crushed Oil-Infused Gloss

Enjoy bold colors with the Bobbi Brown Crushed Oil-Infused Gloss.

This oil-gloss option offers the intense pigmentation of a liquid lipstick without the drying aspect that some impart. It contains botanical oils, hyaluronic acid and vitamins C and E to moisturize and hydrate the lips. You can snag it in 12 colors ranging from a light beige to a dark red, with berry and coral shades in between.

3. For a moisturizing feel: Merit Shade Slick Tinted Lip Oil

Moisturize your lips with the Merit Shade Slick Tinted Lip Oil.

As Reviewed’s beauty editor, I can attest to how comfortable the Merit’s tinted lip oils feel on the lips. They contain rosehip oil and omega fatty acids to support the skin barrier, shea butter and grapeseed oil to moisturize the lips and jojoba oil to keep moisture locked in. The line contains a clear oil to impart a gloss, as well as a range of nude and peach tones from a light blush to a deep brown.

4. For a conditioning treatment: L.Y.S. Beauty Speak Love Glossy Lip Treatment Oil

Soothe dryness with the L.Y.S. Beauty Speak Love Glossy Lip Treatment Oil.

If you’re more focused on getting moisture rather than pigment from an oil, this option from L.Y.S. fills the bill. It contains sunflower, carrot, sweet almond and macadamia nut oils for conditioning the lips, cold-pressed chia seed oil to “volumize” and vitamin E to soothe dryness. The oil comes in a translucent pink shade that boasts a shiny finish.

5. For a shimmery finish: Kosas Wet Lip Oil Plumping Treatment Gloss

Add shimmer to your lips with the Kosas Wet Lip Oil Plumping Treatment Gloss.

A little shimmer goes a long way when it comes to creating a visually plumping effect on the lips, which is what sets this oil from Kosas apart. The product contains hyaluronic acid to hydrate, peptides to smooth and evening primrose oil to protect the lips. Every shade other than clear contains shimmer to catch the light for a shinier, plumper look. It’s available in subdued beige tones and bright pink hues to suit your style. I tried the Kosas lip oil in the shade “Malibu” (a cool pink) and enjoyed the non-sticky, pigmented formula.

6. For a subdued hue: Ilia Balmy Gloss Tinted Lip Oil

Choose from subtle hues with the Ilia Balmy Gloss Tinted Lip Oil.

Ilia Beauty’s line, which I also tested for Reviewed, is made up of low-fuss beauty products. These lip oils don’t stray from that mission—they’re comfortable and come in subtle tones, like a soft pink and a cool lavender, to go with any look. Each one contains hyaluronic acid to hydrate and plump, salicornia herbacea extract to create a smoothing effect and meadowfoam seed oil to lock in moisture.

Get the Ilia Balmy Gloss Tinted Lip Oil from Sephora for $26

7. For a fuller effect: Kylie Skin Lip Oil

Plump your lips with the Kylie Skin Lip Oil.

Kylie Jenner’s makeup brand, Kylie Cosmetics, was built on lip kits after she received attention for her plump pout. For her Kylie Skin line, she created this colorless lippie that contains coconut oil to moisturize, vitamin E to condition and provide antioxidants for skin protection and a “lip plump complex” that claims to visibly plump and “help diminish early signs of aging” with its antioxidants.

8. For a delicious flavor: Ulta Juice Infused Lip Oil

Enjoy a yummy scent with the Ulta Juice Infused Lip Oil.

No one is recommending you eat your lip product, but this line of juice-infused lip oils from Ulta sounds delicious. All six scents contain vitamin E and alaria esculenta (a.k.a. aloe) extracts to condition the lips and provide antioxidants that protect the skin to prevent signs of aging. Each lippie appears tinted in the tube but applies clear, so you can choose whichever sounds more delightful to you among pineapple, cranberry and pomegranate, peach and more.

Get the Ulta Juice Infused Lip Oil from Ulta for $4.50

9. For a custom color: Florence by Mills Glow Yeah Tinted pH Lip Oil

Get a color customized to your lips with the Florence by Mills Glow Yeah Tinted pH Lip Oil.

This tinted lip oil offers the same moisturizing benefits as its clear Glow Yeah Lip Oil counterpart that gained over 1,500 reviews. The difference: This color-adjusts based on your lips’ pH level to create a custom shade for you. It contains African mango butter to moisturize and add shine as well as paracress flower extract to soften the lips.

Get the Florence by Mills Glow Yeah Tinted pH Lip Oil from Ulta for $14

10. For smoothing fine lines: Burt’s Bees Hydrating Lip Oil

Smooth fine lines with the Burt’s Bees Hydrating Lip Oil.

If you notice lines in your lips when you apply lipstick, this lip oil may be just the ticket for you. It claims to add moisture to smooth lip lines using passion fruit oil in its “Passion Fruit” scent and sweet almond oil in its “Sweet Almond” one. Both claim to add shine without any stickiness and go on clear so you can choose based on scent instead of color.

Get the Burt’s Bees Hydrating Lip Oil from Ulta for $2.99

Uber, Lyft safety: I’m mom of three. I need to know I’ll make it home.

Uber, Lyft made safety improvements, but many of those protect riders more than drivers. But drivers are also in danger.

I’ve been a rideshare driver in New York City for six years, and I take pride in my job and helping my passengers get where they need to go safely. But my safety is not a guarantee. I’m a mom of three. I need to know that I’ll make it home to my kids at the end of each night.

Russians fear toll of sanctions triggered by Putin’s Ukraine invasion

Harsh sanctions from Western nations on Russia have reminded citizens of the country’s 1998 debt crisis.

By Anna Nemtsova

  • McDonalds and other American businesses have closed in Russia amid its invasion into Ukraine.
  • One expert estimates more than 200,000 Russians have left the country since the start of the war.
  • To counter economic turmoil, Putin has demand “unfriendly” countries pay for natural gas exports in rubles.

The once bustling corner of Moscow’s central Tverskaya Street looked deserted on Wednesday, as Russia’s first-ever McDonald’s franchise – opened in 1990 in a move that symbolized the Soviet Union’s opening to the West – shut its doors.

A large mural depicting a giant, Soviet-era medal – the Order of Victory, the highest military decoration awarded in World War II — loomed over over the empty sidewalk.
