I am sure all of you must be aware of the “Argan Wear” collection from Physicians Formula which they had launched last year. They had quite a few products in this collection and recently they added a few more to this already-existing line. I picked up their lip oil duo, primarily because of the very attractive packaging. Read on to find out more about the performance of this product.
$12.95, prices vary from store to store.
Revolutionary lip oil treatment works to condition, hydrate, revive, and replenish lips instantly and long term. Transforming miracle boosts lips’ natural color, smoothes texture, enhances lips’ shape and volume for a healthy, more youthful looking pout. 100% pure Argan Oil infused lip duo adds a hint of color and shine while delivering deep hydration that nourishes and soothes lips. Ultra-conditioning lip oil instantly relieves dryness and helps to protect against drying from environmental conditions. Ultra-luxurious coconut water flavored formula melts into your lips, absorbing instantly, for a lightweight, non-sticky luminous shine.
My Experience with Physicians Formula Argan Wear Ultra-Nourishing Argan Lip Oil Duo:
Packaging: The lip oil duo comes in the same Middle-Eastern inspired packaging as the other products from the “Argan Wear” range. The lip oils are housed in cute slim tubes with dome-like screw on caps. The packaging is quite sturdy and leak proof, and travel friendly. The tubes are quite small and hold only 8 ml of the lip oil.
There is no separate applicator provided and the oil can be squeezed out and applied directly from the silicone tip. I found this kind of application pretty easy and convenient to use.
Pigmentation/Texture/Performance: There are two shades in the packaging – Liquid Gold and Pink. However, both of them apply pretty colorless on the lips. They only add loads of visible shine to the lips.
The lip oil has a very mild coconut fragrance which is not overpowering at all and doesn’t stay for too long. The lip oil has a runny oil-like consistency and spreads easily on the lips. It does not feel sticky at all. It feels quite moisturizing which can be attributed to the presence of argan oil, castor oil and shea butter in the ingredients.
However, the lip oil doesn’t stay for too long and it disappears within 1-2 hours. It does provide a moisture boost to the lips for the time that it stays, but once it fades off, the lips return to their original self.
So, I would not call the effects of this oil particularly long lasting, but honestly, I do not mind whipping out the tube every now and then and swiping it across my lips for a moisture surge.
Also, I felt that the effects of this lip oil duo were longer lasting than the recently launched Milani Moisture Lock lip oils.
Pros of Physicians Formula Argan Wear Ultra-Nourishing Argan Lip Oil Duo:

Cons of Physicians Formula Argan Wear Ultra-Nourishing Argan Lip Oil Duo:

IMBB Rating: 3/5
Would I Repurchase/Recommend Physicians Formula Argan Wear Ultra-Nourishing Argan Lip Oil Duo?
Not a must-have product, but I would still recommend if you do not suffer from ultra-dry lips. I will not repurchase the same product.
