The mistake many people make about Milani Moisture Lock Oil Infused Lip Treatment is that they think it is a tinted lipgloss. It is not. Yes, it is shiny but no, the color does not show up - it goes on clear. And most of all it is meant to be a lip treatment more than a cosmetic. The cool things about it are 1) its big fat doe-foot applicator 2) its combination of oils contains the very awesome Tsubaki Oil and 3) it is vegan. I love it!
I am one of those people who constantly has dry chapped lips, and who is forever searching for a lip balm/treatment that actually works. Since discovering Milani Moisture Lock Oil Infused Lip Treatment I need look no further. Of course I probably will because I am a beauty junkie and always love to try new things. But really, this stuff works. It takes a few days for it to kick in, then I absolutely notice my lips are smoother and more hydrated. I mostly use it as a night treatment with occasional swipes during they day.
The consistency of this lip treatment is a bit unusual. It isn't a thin oil like you'd expect if you are used to products such as YSL Volupte Tint-In-Oil. The Moisture Lock oil is more thick and viscous, and I don't mean this in a bad way, but it is also more goopy than a straight on oil. Probably because even though it is mostly oil, there are couple other ingredients in it that have complicated names. It tends to smell synthetic but that doesn't bother me, I have become wildly addicted to both the smell and consistency. And the fruity scents vary according to what "flavor" or ingredients are in each treatment.
For example, there are eight different treatments, that come in eight different colors/flavors (as I said before they all go on clear), and address eight different types of lip issues. There are: Moisturizing Almond Coco (clear), Healing Lemon Honey (yellow), Rejuvenating Peach Mango (gold-orange), Conditioning Grapeseed (purple), Repairing Primrose (light pink), Revitalizing Grapefruit (orange-red), protecting Pomegranate (red), and Nourishing Raspberry (dark pink).
I haven't tried every single one yet but I have tried a lot and my consensus is that they are all hydrating and conditioning, the only thing being that some worked better for me than others. The oil which produced the best results for me was the Healing Lemon Honey, with Repairing Primrose coming in second. I am dying to try the Moisturizing Almond Coco!
I highly recommend you go to your local drug store, read about the healing properties of each one on their label, and plunk down about $8.50 for your favorite.
