With inventions like powder pigments and ombré lipsticks, you’d think the beautyverse would be all out of ideas by now. Well, apparently not. Another lip novelty just hit our radar—and it’s proudly local, too!
Now, lip oils aren’t a new discovery, but Skin Genie’s Healing Lip Glow is. And yes, ladies, it’s as luxurious as it sounds. Enriched with a blend of organic oils, this tubes pulls triple duty as a gloss, lip primer, and finishing coat. But that’s not even the best part!
What really sets this tube above the rest is its infusion of semi-precious stones. Believed to ward off bad vibes, the mix of rose quartz and amethyst takes “feel good, look good” to a whole new level. The only question is: does it work as beautifully as it looks?
See our verdict after the quick how-to, below!
USAGE: Use the Skin Genie Healing Lip Glow in place of your regular lip balm.
STEP 1: Using the roller tip, apply a light layer of the Skin Genie Healing Lip Glow all over your lips.
STEP 2: Blot off the excess with tissue paper. (You can leave this as is for a bare, high-shine finish. But for a pop of color, move on to the next steps.)
STPE 3: Once your lips are primed with the oil, apply a lip tint over it. Here, we used the Skin Genie Lip & Cheek Stain Alive! in Cherry Red.
STEP 4: Then, gently blend it out with your fingers. The oil will sheer out the pigment and allow it to glide smoothly over your lips.
LOOK: When used alone, the Healing Lip Glow delivers an extremely high-shine effect. This instantly creates the illusion of a plumper pout. Now, while the oil itself isn’t tinted, the shimmering finish wears beautifully on its own. When combined with a lip tint, it results in smoother and more natural-looking color.
FEEL: As expected, this lip oil delivers intense moisture upon contact. It’s the perfect relief for the type of dry, chapped lips not even a balm can fix. This stuff glides like silk—especially with the roller-ball applicator. And another thing to love about it? The formula leaves a fresh cooling sensation on the lips.
OVERALL: Fancy crystals aside, this nourishing lip oil is everything it claims to be: moisturizing, plumping, and non-greasy. Plus, its hydrating powers make for a great pre-stain primer. In fact, we’ve never seen lip tint apply so smoothly! Needless to say, this gold-flecked tube is never leaving our kits.
