As I’m writing this review we are having major snow/freezing rain in Canada! On that note, I thought that a lip oil review would be suitable for today’s post.
I have wanted to try a lip oil for a while now and had my eye on the Clarins’ one and was about to purchase until I stumbled upon this one by Etude House on eBay. The packaging looks almost identical and the name ‘honey’ made me think of a sweet nourishing formula. I decided to give this one a try and at only $10 CAD (Clarins’ lip oil is $25 CAD) I really wasn’t going to lose much if I didn’t enjoy it.
Upon applying the product I noticed the applicator and again, this looks identical to the Clarins’ applicator. It picks up a good amount of product and allows for quick even application. This has a pleasant sweet scent and it feels great on the lips! Not heavy; but a nice light-weight oil that has a gorgeous shine (as oils do!). I have applied this on top of lipstick and lip liner however, that was not a good idea because oil tends to rub off any traces of makeup however the shine is so gorgeous and long wearing while still comfortable that I wanted it to work. Now, I will mostly use this at night or on no makeup days or at least no lipstick days.
All in all, this is a good product and I currently have used most of it up and plan to finish and repurchase for next winter. Item contains 7ml of product and contains expiry date on bottom which I appreciate.
