8 affordable dupes for the viral Dior Lip Oil
Because who doesn’t love options?

Beauty TikTok deserves all the flowers.
The platform’s beauty gurus are basically providing a public service with the sheer number of dupes they put us onto.
These selfless folks have blessed us with more viral product recommendations than we can count: Clinique Black Honey dupes, Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Light Wand and Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter dupes, plus a Baccarat Rouge 540 dupe that’s only $10.
But after becoming addicted to Dior’s viral lip oil, we make sure to keep an eye out for Dior Addict Lip Glow Oil ($62 at Dior) dupes specifically.
The app's most-trusted beauty aficionados have sung high praises for the luxe lip option, with phrases like “I’m in love” and “this one just hits different” being thrown around with wild abandon. We think it’s fair to say we’ve all developed a bonafide love affair with the stuff.
But what about the folks that can’t afford to drop a small fortune on a lip product?
We’ve scrolled through countless TikTok videos (and sampled a few formulas ourselves) to bring you a list of seven more affordable options.
The Dior Addict Lip Glow Oil dupes
1/ CLARINS Lip Comfort Oil
Being the closest in terms of finish, packaging quality and application, this offering from Clarins delivers a disturbingly similar experience as the viral Dior lip oil and is almost $20 cheaper. Nourishing plant oils are the central ingredient of this hydrating formula, but it’s the doe foot applicator that caught the eyes of TikTokers, who noticed it was literally the exact same tool that the Dior version comes equipped with.
$45 at Adore Beauty
2/ Kosas Wet Lip Oil Plumping Treatment Gloss
Intended to plump while delivering wet look-level shine, this dupe has a distinct amount of shimmer that Dior’s offering lacks. However, the two options are comparable in finish and both boast a wealth of wearable and fun shades. We rate the Kosas range in terms of colour vibrancy, while Dior offers a glass-like transparency.
$37 at MECCA
3/ RARE BEAUTY Soft Pinch Tinted Lip Oil
If you can’t decide between a lip stain and a lip oil, let us introduce you to Selena Gomez’s newest baby: Rare Beauty’s Soft Pinch Tinted Lip Oil. Unlike the Dior lip oil, which verges on the precipice of a lip oil and a lip gloss. The unique gel to oil formula leaves your pout with a flattering flush, which can be layered into an opaque lip colour, while the oil-infused formula helps to hydrate lips long after application.
$35 at Sephora
4/ Jouer Essential Hydrating Lip Oil
Arguably the most nourishing option on this list (complete with a slick, no-stick finish), Jouer has the Dior lip oil beat. TikToker Christine Johosky bought the dupe formula after a friend recommended it to her and the review was pretty clear: “This lip oil is way better than Dior.”
$33 at MECCA
5/ Australis Lip Glaze
Yep, that’s right, the makeup brand that you wore every day in highschool just got a refresh. The most exciting thing about Australis’ new look? They’ve created affordable dupes for TikTok’s most viral beauty buys — including Dior’s Addict Lip Glow Oil. Donned Australis Lip Glaze, this stuff is infused with hyaluronic acid, peptides, and jojoba oil, which help to plump and hydrate lips. Personally, we’re reaching for the ‘Peach’ shade to emulate the candy coloured hue of our beloved Dior Lip Oil.
$16.95 at Australis
6/ Lanolips Glossy Balm
After emptying yet another vial of Dior Lip Oil (devastating), we stumbled on this budget-friendly and moisturising lip gloss and balm hybrid. The cherry-hued, glass finish gloss is enriched with lanolin, vitamin E and sweet almond oil, which help to nourish, moisturise and plump lips. It’s also very difficult to discern Lanolips Glossy Balm in ‘Candy’ from Dior’s ‘Cherry’ shade.
$14.95 at MECCA
7/ MCoBeauty Lip Oil Hydrating Treatment
Aussie beauty got its moment of glory too, with MCoBeauty topping one ex-Dior lip oil fiend’s list as their number one dupe. The bonus? This ultra-cheap pick is available at Woolworths, so you don’t even need to pay shipping to get your hands on a tube of the glass-finish formula.
$14 at MCoBeauty
8/ I Heart Revolution Tasty Peach Lip Oil
Revolution’s budget-friendly lip oils have TikTok in a chokehold – they’re just that good. While international fans of the brand have managed to get their hands on a formula packaged to look a little more like Dior’s luxury formula, we’ve got a peach-hued range downunder that can hold its own too.
$10 at Revolution Beauty
