The revolution of lip oils in the world of makeup is a fact, and with good reason: in contrast to traditional lipsticks, whose design is generally focused on color, lip oils also keep your lips hydrated, soft and healthy, multiplying shine immediately, with an effect similar to gloss.

Not to mention, lip oils stand out for their light and never-sticky texture, particularly compared to their two biggest competitors, balms and glosses. Many such products have been made with a special focus on color, perfect for adding that eye-catching touch to one’s look. It’s no surprise that social media influencers have been quick to show off the products they’ve got to have in their bag with the hashtag #lipoil, which is currently tagged to an almost infinite amount of videos that between them, have racked up more than 2.5 billion views with their coverage of the most viral lip oils.

What is the difference between lip gloss and lip oil?

Although it’s clear that lip oils are in competition with lip gloss, it’s often hard to know the difference between these two products. The contrast can be summed up by saying that lip glosses are designed to add a touch of shine and color to lips with a shiny finish, while lip oils focus on hydrating and repairing lips with nutritional ingredients, at the same time adding a shiny effect, but one that is more subtle and less sticky. It stands to reason that they’ve gone viral in the world of makeup.

Beauty brands, of course, haven’t been slow to catch onto the trend and make it their own by creating bestselling products that have become undisputed protagonists of this massive wave of viral videos. All you have to do is find your favorite. And so, here is a list of eight lip oils that are already must-haves, from brands like NYX, Dior, Clarins and Gisou (the most popular name on social media when it comes to lip oils), with which you’ll shine with shiny, hydrated lips. Here they are:

NYX Professional Makeup Fat Oil Lip Drip

NYX’s lip oil is one of the most popular, particularly because of its eight available shades and for its formula, enriched with plant oils like raspberry and blackberry. It provides hydration and shine for 12 hours, and stands out due to its fluffy XXL applicator, which makes application a comfortable, simple and dazzling experience.
