Milani Moisture Lock Oil Infused Lip Treatment is a lip oil treatment formulated with the natural healing power of Jojoba, Avocado and Tsubaki Oil available in eight flavors. They got launched as part of Milani Spring 2016 Collection. Each shade is infused with different nutrient-dense oils that treat a specific concern. It has a soft, extra plush applicator that hugs the curves of your lips, locking in moisture.
In this post I am reviewing 3 variants from this range.

Packaging – Comes in this thick glass tube with large and soft sponge tip applicator. While I feel wand is really large and soft. I do feel it’s wuite bulky and it actually soaks in a lot more product. The moment you take the wand out You feel more than half of the bottle is empty. But I love how big it is. It is super easy to apply the formula to the lips.
Formula & Fragrance – Formula is quite thick. But, not sticky at all. It applies very nicely and gives a glossy finish to lips like that of a plumpy clear lip gloss. Love the fact that the formula is not at all sticky. Love the fragrance.

I really love the feel of these when applied on my lips at first, they leave the lips feeling smooth, moisturised and nourished. They don’t have any over powering fragrance which I love. When I received it, I was thinking it would be substituted as my bed time lip treatment oil. I have been using Clarins Lip treatment for my chapped lips. But, these lasts only upto 2-3 hours. You have to reapply this product. It turns to a balmy texture after 2-3 hours. So, I you don’t mind reapplying it and if you prefer to use it as a day lip treatment oil – this is perfect for you.
While there are different variants to try out and each type is targeted to treat a specific lip concern. I am not very find of these. I don’t think these can ever replace a good moisturising lip balm. These are like a feel good lip treatment product which gives that instant relief from dryness. it cannot be used to treat dry.chapped lips. It gives your lips a glossy feel and feel nourished. Only lasting for 2-3 hours though. I really wish these were perhaps a bit more long-lasting.
For these above mentioned reasons, I wouldn’t call them an actual “ lip treatment” like what Milani claims, but they are a lot more moisturising than your average lip gloss. You may use this to add a glossy touch to your matte lips or use this as a lip primer etc! Definitely not for over dried or chapped lip condition considering its lasting power.
