Kosas Wet Lip Oil Gloss in Malibu | Review and Swatches

Purchased (Affiliate Links)

Kosas Wet Lip Oil Gloss in Malibu, which is described as a Surfy Pink đź‘™,  is a wonderful hybrid lip oil and gloss that is covet-worthy for people, like me, who love nourishing lip oils and glosses. This plumping and deeply moisturizing Lip Oil Gloss is filled with ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid, Peptides, Evening Primrose Oil, Avocado Oil, Shea Butter that nourish and condition even the most chapped lips.

The texture is lightweight, and emollient, with a slightly oily texture, but it is not so oily that it slides right off of the lips or sinks into them and disappears. It is very smooth and silky without the least bit of gritty texture. Instead, it moisturizes, but it also wears like a hybrid lip oil gloss, and I find that it lasts on me for a couple of hours. It is very comfortable on the lips, with the perfect amount of cushion, and has quickly become one of my favorite things to wear. The "Surfy Pink" is a mid-tone rosy pink that is punctuated by tiny multi-colored shimmer, and while the color can be built up or sheered out, the lips always show through. Therefore, this is neither a clear gloss, nor is it opaque– instead it offers a nice middle ground with some lovely pigmentation that allows the lips to show though. It has a light fruity aroma, but that fades nearly immediately, and therefore it should pose no problem for people sensitive to scented lip products.
According to Kosas,

Buy your lips a drink. This hybrid lip treatment + gloss is packed with peptides that plump and hydrate, all while providing a juicy slick of color.

100% treatment, 100% lip gloss. Hyaluronic Acid, Peptides, Evening Primrose Oil and other botanicals work to hydrate, plump and protect the lips. The non-sticky formula slides on smooth to give you a soft, comfortable feel and slick, vinyl look. Fully wearable day or night. Slide. Smack. Shine.
