10 Pretty and Protective Tinted Lip Balms


Without caking, creasing, settling into lines, or leaving tumbleweed-level dryness in their way, they offer lovely, buildable sheer-to-intense washes of color. The best ones, however, go well beyond simple aesthetic appeal.

The best-of-the-best are enriched with sun protection, antioxidants, and hyaluronic acid to double as lip-focused skin-care treatments and deposit a slick of color. They have a hint of ultra-fine shimmer added to them for a bright but still understated finish. Or maybe they reinterpret entirely what "lip balm" used to mean in the past, taking the form of non-sticky "oil" compositions that can make you forget about the lip gloss you keep in the back of your handbag.

We've compiled a list of 10 multipurpose, high-performing tinted lip balms we're currently crushing on, with colors to match every skin tone and pricing ranges to suit any spending plan. To view them all and shop, scroll through.
