The makeup world is all about trends and the latest lip trend on the beauty block is lip oils. Higher end brands like Yves Saint Laurent and Clinique have whipped up a line of them and now budget beauty brands like Milani are hopping on board to give us more options at a reasonable price. ‘Cause a girl’s gotta have options! I’ve tried a lip oil a while back by Yes to Coconut and I liked it but not quite as much as I like the new Milani Moisture Lock Oil Infused Lip Treatment.
The Milani Moisture Lock Oil Infused Lip Treatment is a hydrating lip oil formulated with a blend of natural healing oils including Jojoba, Avocado and Tsubaki oils with the added benefit of additional natural oils to target specific concerns like moisture, fine lines and more. There’s 8 lightly scented translucent shades to choose from each with a soft, chunky curved applicator to hug the natural curves of lips and lock in moisture. I’ve tried 3 of the 8 shades so far and I have to give Milani a pat on the back. I’m impressed!
My first pick was the popular Moisturizing Almond Coco. It’s infused with coconut oil and almond for a delicious nutty coconut scent and a big hydration boost. Moisturizing Almond Coco quickly became my favorite of the Moisture Lock Oil Infused Lip Treatments because it’s deeply hydrating and makes my parched lips feel like silk the moment I apply it. Moisturizing Almond Coco has a slightly thick texture but it doesn’t feel heavy and it’s not sticky or tacky at all. In fact, it’s very comfortable to wear and lasts for around 3-4 hours before fading away leaving my lips feeling soft, moisturized and plush. Moisturizing Almond Coco also makes a fabulous overnight lip treatment!
We all know I love pink more than life so it’s no surprise that Repairing Primrose ended up coming home with me. Part of me picked it up because it was pink but I was also interested in its repairing properties. My dry lips have lots of fine lines so I was curious to see how Repairing Primrose would work for me. I haven’t noticed any drastic difference in my fine lines but Repairing Primrose is rather moisturizing and does seem to reduce the appearance of my fine lines when I wear it thanks to its nice juicy shine. I love to apply it as a lip primer for my matte and liquid lipsticks because it’s a little more lightweight than Moisturizing Almond Coco and it absorbs a bit more quickly as well.
My lips can get pretty dry sometimes (especially after all those liquid lipsticks!) so I grabbed Healing Lemon Honey as well to try as an overnight treatment. I thought I would like Healing Lemon Honey the most but ironically I like it the least. It wasn’t very hydrating which is strange for a healing lip treatment. Healing Lemon Honey is the most lightweight of the 3 so it takes quite a lot of product to completely coat my full lips. However, it’s almost drying compared to Moisturizing Almond Coco and Repairing Primrose. I’ve tried it a few times as an overnight lip treatment and my lips didn’t feel nearly as plush and supple as they did when I used Moisturizing Almond Coco. In fact, Healing Lemon Honey only seemed to really work for me when I mixed it with Repairing Primrose or Moisturizing Almond Coco. Which I think defeats the purpose of buying it in the first place.
Overall, I think the Milani Moisture Lock Oil Infused Lip Treatments are rather nice! Moisturizing Almond Coco is an absolute must have for dry lips and I think Repairing Primrose will be a nice addition to any gal’s makeup bag for a quick moisture touch up. Both shades are nicely moisturizing, smell great and leaves feeling soft and looking juicy. I highly recommend grabbing them! Healing Lemon Honey, on the other hand, is an easy skip if you have really dry lips or looking for a solid overnight lip treatment. You’re much better off with Moisturizing Almond Coco or Repairing Primrose!
