So you've already got a whole slew of lip products and you think that you don't need any more—but how much of it is actually for lip care?
A lot of women tend to forget that their lips also need a bit of loving. It can be pretty annoying to always deal with chapped puckers, plus wounds and scabs also make it hard for you to slide on your favorite shade.
This is why you should try lip oil. If you're wondering how different it is from your regular balm with regard to nourishment, think of it this way: your balm addresses topical issues, meaning it only moisturizes the outer skin. Oil, on the other hand, penetrates deeper so that your lips get all the nutrients that it carries. [via StyleCaster]
Similar to serums or emulsions that you put on your face, you'll need to allow it a few minutes to seep through before putting on lipstick, but if you want something that's multi-tasking, pick a lip oil that's tinted—once the sheen disappears, you'll be left with a subtle, long-lasting color.
