Pucker up! Whether you're a glamour gal or a low-key lady, every Beauty swipes on lip balm. This basic beauty essential can seamlessly protect, pigment, and perfect your pout. But with an endless selection of mouth-moisturizing options, which one is right for you? To help you narrow down the list, we rounded up our top picks from tinted to tasty!
Not a fan of the statement lip? A tinted will add a subtle stain to your lips without the richness of a lipstick or the sticky mess of a gloss. The sheer layer is also ideal for color correcting your pout.
While many balms come with a delicious scent, the ones that feature a yummy taste can help fight snack cravings, make your lips delectably to kiss, and are perfect for breaking bad beauty habits such as lip bitting. Plus, for most of us flavored lip balms also bring to mind cheerful childhood memories!
Just like any exposed surface, lips need protection from harmful rays. Now-a-days there are tons of fantastic balms with high-levels of SPF included in their luxe formula—so you don't have to deal with the bitter taste or pesky white film that comes from traditional sunblock.

For those Beauties who suffer from dry or chapped lips, finding a long-lasting formula with medicated ingredients is essential. If Vaseline isn't cutting it, look for balms with rose extract, shea butter, and Vitamin E, which will keep your lips smooth and moist.
