We’ve been taught that oil is bad.
It’s framed as the bogeyman behind global wars, climate change, and stay-home-because-they’re-so-bad breakouts.
But you wouldn’t guess it by visiting Sephora or flipping through an issue of NYLON. Greasy products have taken over shelves as the ultimate antidote to just about any beauty problem. Want shiny locks? Grab a bottle of macadamia nut oil
. Want luminescent skin? Squirt on some face oil
. Want soft lips? Get Ramy’s new Lip Oil.
Each vial promises to replace your tubes of gloss and pots of balm, thanks to its ultra-intense moisturizing formula (which includes almond oil, jojoba oil, freeze dried collagen, and marine spheres). We put it to the test this weekend, and the results left us—and our winter-worn lips—impressed. What was once dry and cracked became smooth within hours, and we didn’t even have to reapply every few minutes.
Of course, it’s not the type of thing you’d want to throw into your purse (glass bottles and leather don’t go well together), but onto your lips after a long day? Yeah, grease is the word.
