New In: The Milani Moisture Lock Oil Infused Lip Treatment



If you follow me on Instagram you would have seen that I recently did a little drugstore makeup haul and picked up some of the new products that have come out for 2016. There's a TON of new stuff out and one of the things that caught my eye was the Milani Moisture Lock Oil Infused Lip Treatment in 05 Repairing Primrose. I had seen photos of this on social media and thought it seemed like a drugstore version of the high-end tinted lip oils that came out last year. Suffice it to say I got swept up in the hype and when I spotted it at Walgreen's I dropped it in my basket.



I went with the rose hip oil infused treatment over the other scents/shades because I love the scent of roses and know that rose hip oil is great for smoothing and repairing. Unfortunately the second you pull the wand out of the product you find that the tube is really half empty thanks to all the space the massive wand takes up. The doe-foot applicator on this is huge and shaped like a cross between a spoon and a lucky rabbit's foot. It doesn't bend or flex and the stiffness makes it feel like you're applying the product with a fingertip. Odd applicator aside, the formula itself is what really annoys me. This stuff is very thick and applies like an old school lip gloss I would have owned when I was in elementary school. It's not sticky but it has an incredibly waxy and chemically taste that's just so unpleasant. The gloss does feel a bit oily and your lips slowly soak it up leaving them hydrated and smooth but I just don't think the results are worth dealing with the awful taste.



Personally, I wouldn't recommend this product. I appreciate Milani's attempt at trying to make a drugstore alternative for a tinted oil lip treatment but I think they might need to go back to the drawing board on this one. There are a lot of lip balms out there that will hydrate and smooth as well as this without leaving a bad taste in your mouth. Nivea makes some great balms and the Smith's Rosebud Salve is not only super hydrating but leaves a beautiful rosy tint and shine on your lips. I would recommend picking up one of those instead.


How do you feel about bad tasting lip products? Would you buy them anyway if you liked the end result?

  1. Oh I agree. If it tastes bad, I don't care how well it works. I once had a lip gloss that looked amazing on me but it had a horrible taste. I used it like twice then threw it out. It's just not worth it. :)
