I'm a big believer that some of the best make-up products don't need to come with a luxury price tag – even more so now with the price of everything else going up.

Many of my favourite products in my beauty routine cost less than £10 and my new favourite is the Nyx Professional Makeup Fat Oil Lip Drip Gloss.

It's a tinted lip oil that blurs the line between make-up and skincare and has fast become a regular in my make-up routine.

It's proven extremely popular on TikTok which is where I first discovered the new launch. User Nicolette Pennisi's video demonstrating how they look on the lips has over 700,000 views.

Meanwhile, beauty influencer Mango Monica's video has a whopping 1.2 millions views, and the hashtag #nyxfatoillipdrip has 11.3 million views.

Available in eight versatile shades from bubblegum pink to chocolate brown, I'm recommending it to everyone I know.

Lip oils are one of my favourite ways to wear colour without commitment and I'm always keen to avoid dry, chapped lips. This one does both.

🛍️ Reasons to buy

Firstly, the price is fantastic value and a lot less than leading lip oils on the market from Dior and Clarins, which cost over £20 each.

I like the shades Newsfeed and Supermodel, two pink and red-toned colours that are the perfect boost to your natural lip colour.

They have a large doe-foot applicator which makes applying the glossy formula easy to do in just two swipes and the consistency means it keeps its colour and high-shine finish for hours.

It's a slightly tacky consistency that helps the sheer colour stay put without it feeling greasy. I love how low maintenance it is – you don't have to worry about the formula smudging when you eat, and it's easy to touch up without the need for a mirror.

Reasons to avoid

As these are tinted lip oils, they don't have the same pigment as a lipstick, so if you're looking for an opaque colour, these are not for you.

Other than that, our only gripe is how fast they sellout, which makes getting your hands on one a bit tricky, but it's well worth it I promise.

💰 Best deal we've found

Currently the Nyx Professional Makeup Fat Oil Lip Drip Gloss is exclusively available at Superdrug. While there are no deals on offer right now, keep your eyes peeled as the retailer is known for its flash sales and discounts.

However if you're keen to buy a few shades rather than committing to just one, if you spend over £25 you will qualify for free standard delivery.
