Milani recently launched a very interesting range of lip treatment – “Milani Moisture Lock Lip Treatment.” This is a range of 8 different lip oils that come in a very cute packaging. I was intrigued as I had not used lip oils before and hence ended up buying 3 oils from this range. Today, I am reviewing the “02 Healing Lemon Honey” variant for you. Read on to find out more.
$8.49, prices vary from store to store.
Discover a revolution in lip hydration plus a healthy dose of shine with a first-of-its-kind lip oil in 8 addictively scented, kiss quenching shades. All lip oils are formulated with the natural healing power of Jojoba, Avocado and Tsubaki Oil. As an added benefit, each shade is infused with different nutrient-dense oils that treat a specific concern. The soft, extra plush applicator hugs the curves of your lips, locking in moisture.
The 8 different oils in this range are:
01: Moisturizing Almond Coco
02: Healing Lemon Honey
03: Rejuvenating peach mango
04: Conditioning Grapeseed
05: Repairing Primrose
06: Revitalizing Grapefruit
07: Protecting pomegranate
08: Nourishing Raspberry
I bought these three – 02 Healing Lemon Honey, 06: Revitalizing Grapefruit and 08: Nourishing Raspberry oils.\
My Experience with Milani Moisture Lock Lemon Oil Infused Lip Treatment – Healing Lemon Honey:
Packaging: The packaging of this range is so adorable and is bound to generate a lot of interest. I mean you just cannot pass by these cute little bottles with different colored fluids sitting on a shop shelf. It sort of reminded me of those colored vials in the chemistry lab 😛
The bottle comes with a screw on cap and a fat doe-shaped sponge applicator. The sponge is pretty big as compared to the normal applicators that you usually see with other glosses, but it is pretty good at picking up the oil and applies the product easily on the lips.
Pigmentation/Texture/Performance: Though the lip oil seems to have a pretty golden yellow color in the bottle and the wand, it actually appears colorless on the lips. It doesn’t add any color at all to the lips. It only adds loads of visible shiny gloss. I personally am not a gloss person and hence do not enjoy this kind of a shiny look. The lip oil has a pleasant lemon fragrance which is not overpowering. The smell wears away after a while.
The texture surprisingly does not feel like an oil. It is more like a gloss and the good part is that it is not overtly sticky, but for a product which claims to be a lip treatment infused with oils, I was expecting it to be a bit more hydrating. It does feel moisturizing when you first apply it, but I feel that it just sits there on the lips for a while and then fades away without really sinking into the lips and doing any long-term good. I would instead use a good lip balm any day. It stays for about 2 hours or so and then starts fading away.
To summarize, I would say it provides a nice shine and a little moisture but nothing that can replace a good lip balm. I would not recommend it for dry lips. Plus, with zero color, I think Milani has overdone it by launching 8 different versions.
