Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Tinted Lip Oil Review

Fresh off the success of their viral and bestselling Soft Pinch Liquid Blush, Rare Beauty by Selena Gomez recently launched their NEW Tinted Lip Oil and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on them!  I recently tried three of the eight available shades and am excited to share my full Review of Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Tinted Lip Oil with you.  Let’s get to it.

What is Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Tinted Lip Oil?

Soft Pinch Tinted Lip Oil is described by Rare Beauty as an innovative lip jelly that transforms into a lightweight oil, starting off glossy, then leaving lips tinted while staying comfortable—never sticky—all day.

The formula of this Lip Oil is quite unique. The initial finish is a gloss.  The gloss eventually wears off leaving behind a tinted wash of color on the lips.

Amra Beganovich, lifestyle influencer and founder of Amra & Elma and Colorful Socks, explains that she loves to wear Soft Pinch Tinted Lip Oil while working out. The jelly formula keeps her lips hydrated but the tint gives her that “no-makeup makeup” kind of look that is perfect for the gym.

Shade Selection

Rare Beauty Tinted Lip Oil is currently available in Eight shades and they are all highly pigmented and beautiful.

  • Serenity – warm rose
  • Affection – muted berry
  • Happy – cool pink
  • Joy – muted peach
  • Delight – rose brown

  • Wonder – rose mauve
  • Honesty – nude brown

Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Tinted Lip Oil is available in Eight highly pigmented Shades.

I tried Shades Happy, Delight and Hope.  You can check out my Instagram Reels Video below to see the shades as well as the finish of the Lip Oil. (Be sure to follow me on Instagram for more videos like this!)


Soft Pinch Tinted Lip Oil is easy to apply and one to two coats gives you medium shade intensity.  You can build the coverage to your desired finish by adding further coats without it feeling too heavy or sticky.  The Lip Oil feels comfortable on the lips and does not dry them out as many lip tints do.  It contains Jojoba Oil and Sunflower Seed Oil which helps to lock in hydration.  On me, the glossy finish lasted a couple of hours.  After the gloss wears off, it leaves a nice wash of tint that literally lasted all day.

Word of Caution:  Make certain your lips are hydrated and not chapped to avoid the tint from appearing patchy after the gloss wears off.

TIP: Lightly exfoliating and applying a good balm to your lips every night will keep them in good condition and ready for any lip products the next day.
