Lip oils are basically like the love child of your favourite lip balm and lip gloss, who inherited all the best features from their parents. This overachiever gives you high-shine, minus the stickiness of a lip gloss, and comes with all the nourishing and conditioning benefits of a lip balm.

Lips oils come packed with botanical oils and nourishing ingredients, and can even double up as lip treatments. Some will even give your lips a sheer wash of colour for days you don’t feel like wearing a lipstick. Here are eight lip oils you should seriously consider adding to your stash.
