This Wander Beauty Lip Retreat Oil took me by surprise! I picked it up whilst making a Cult Beauty order a few months ago because I recently fell in love with their under-eye masks and it looked like a nice addition to my tinted balm/gloss/oil stash… what’s one more lip product right?

Wander Beauty, founded by entrepreneur Divya Gugnani and model Lindsay Ellingson was born out of a need of multi tasking products that delivered results whilst being easy to use. They create products that make the lives of modern women easier without overcomplicating things. Multi purpose products that encourage fuss free beauty? That appeals to me too… most of the time ;).

Within minutes of arriving at my front door, the shade ‘Spa Day’ was allllll over my lips and what I thought would be another lovely lip product to add to the collection quickly found its way into my daily rotation. It’s a carefully considered formula- dare I say the perfect tinted lip oil?

The formula isn’t greasy or heavy, sits nicely and conditions whilst imparting a decent amount of pigment. It allows my natural lip colour to show through as it creates a uniform veil over them, leaving a healthy shine.

Though this is a richer lip oil – which is why it hangs around and wears nicely throughout the day (especially considering it is a hydrating formula!) There is no stickiness which is why I love it- this is not a hair in the gloss moment! I also appreciate the formula isn’t so sheer that the tint is undetectable but also isn’t completely opaque.

The brilliant texture is all made possible with a blend of hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, rose and apricot oils to soothe, repair and nourish the lips. A lovely little nod to the brand fusing together skincare with makeup to be multipurpose! You’re left with comfortable, juicy looking lips that feel incredible- there is nothing worse than a lip oil that makes your lips drier (I’m naming no names!).

The doe foot applicator is brilliant too- it always picks up the perfect amount of product whilst being precise enough to give control, meaning you can apply with ease – even on the go, just smush your lips together and you’re good to go. No mirror necessary.

The Wander Beauty Lip Retreat oil is available in 4 shades.

Spa Day –A beautiful red toned pink, with just enough brown in the formula.

Excursion – Blue toned berry. It looks like the perfect introduction to wearing berry lip

Skinny Dip – Peach toned ‘nude’, This would be great with a darker liner.

Oasis – Un-tinted. All the conditioning without any pigment.

I love Spa Day and will probably need a backup soon, but think Oasis may just have to happen. *adds to basket*

The Wander Beauty Lip Retreat oil is £21 and available at Cult Beauty and Net a Porter in the UK.

In the US you can find them at selected Sephora stores and online here.
