Lip oil is way better. Its a lot more moisturizing and it’s so much prettier!

@TeamBIC oh this is a tough one already!! I'll say MAKEUP BY MARIO MoistureGlow™ Plumping Lip Serum Bare Glow 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

I like the Dior Lip Glow Oil Cherry it's a favorite!

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

I have to say líp oil, but I am not interested in either one 😅 @TeamBIC !! 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

@Saradestin  You’re our lipstick queen!   A round more suited for your signature look is sure to come up;). 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

Hey @Saradestin , sometimes you just gotta be honest 😂

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

I’m going with lip oil @TeamBIC .   I do enjoy the HAUS LABS BY LADY GAGA PhD Hybrid Lip Oil  and the Dior Lip Glow Oil .  Also drugstore options that I like are NYX  Fat Oil in Supermodel and  elf lip oil in many shade.   

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

I definitely would have to go with a lip oil. The Summer Fridays Dream Lip Oil for Moisturizing Sheer Coverage is definitely one of my favs.

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

I’m definitely gonna go with lip oil!! I tried the Dior lip glow oil back in September and it’s an everyday staple for me. I love the moisture it gives my lips and it stays on for quite a while. Will definitely be repurchasing. Dior Lip Glow Oil love it!!

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

@TeamBIC I’m gonna go with lip oil! Some of my favorites are the LANEIGE Lip Glowy Balm or the Rare Beauty by Selena Gomez Soft Pinch Tinted Lip Oil Serenity.

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

I’m going with Lip oil!! I purchased summer Fridays lip butter balm . mainly because I loved the smell! It was everything. Wore it for 20 mins and wiped it off. Felt like I was in my college era with my lip gloss. It’s so tacky texture everytime you move your lips. So for me personally I’ll stick to my lip oil then chapstick.

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

Lip balm! I’m picky about texture on my lips, especially anything that feels sticky - I tried the #OLEHENRIKSEN Pout Preserve Hydrating Peptide Lip Treatment in Strawberry Sorbet and have been loving it! It has a beautiful shine but still has a smooth and super long lasting wear. 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

@beccabakes  The OH lip treatment is so good!

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

That peptide treatment sounds pretty great @beccabakes 😍

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

Lip oil!!! 
I love Saie Glossybounce™ High-Shine Hydrating Lip Gloss Oil in the shade “Dusty Rose”

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

I have to go with tinted lip balm for round one. While there are some lip oils I do enjoy, I just prefer the look and finish of a lip balm for day to day use. My favorite is Kosas Kosasport LipFuel Hyaluronic Acid Lip Balm Rush for a perfect hint of color on low-makeup days. 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

@alexasteph  These are my go to before lipstick.  

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

Tinted Lip Balm! Summer Fridays Brown Sugar or Poppy are tops for me! Gorgeous color and moisture for days! Summer Fridays Lip Butter Balm for Hydration & Shine
