Stash These Practical And Pretty Tinted Lip Balms In Your Bag Stat

Tinted lip balms are truly a wonderful, multi-functional product. Not only do they keep your puckers hydrated and moisturised, but also inject them with some colour so that you can ditch those drying lipsticks.
#1: Dior Lip Glow, $50
One of Dior’s iconic hero products, the Lip Glow mashes together the comfort of a balm with a natural flush of colour. The secret lies in the perfect balance between make-up and lip care, which is achieved via the brand’s Color Reviver technology that reacts to the unique chemistry of each individual’s lips to deliver a custom colour that suits their skin tone. Formulated with luscious mango butter, it claims to provide continual hydration for 24 hours while the lips look radiant and full. #2: Shiseido Global Suncare UV Lip Color Splash, $33
Don’t forget to pack this especially when you’re heading out for a day at the beach, as the SPF 30 in this protects your precious pouters against harmful UV rays. It’s a gentle, high-shine formula that includes moisturising safflower oil that leaves your lips looking dewy. #3: Fresh Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 in Punch, $36
This lip treatment has a blend of meadowfoam and blackcurrant oils that nourish the lips and maintain hydration levels to keep them looking supple at all times. Grapeseed oil that’s rich in antioxidants like vitamins C and E provide protection against free radicals that cause wrinkles while SPF shields the lips from harmful UV rays. But the key ingredient here is really sugar. It’s a natural humectant that smoothens chapped lips. #4: Caudalie French Kiss Tinted Lip Balm, $19
This lip balm is formulated with antioxidant grapeseed polyphenols to reduce fine wrinkles, aloe vera that repairs damaged skin, plus castor and sunflower oils to moisturise. One coat of this leaves a wearable everyday sheen, but feel free to build it up for higher-impact colour. If this dark mauvy pink isn’t your cup of tea, there are two other lighter shades of sweet pinks to choose from. #5: Givenchy Le Rose Perfecto Lip Balm, $53
This nourishing formula hydrates and plumps the lips at the same time for juicy, pouty-looking lips thanks to shea butter and pink pepper extracts, respectively. Apply this for healthy, chic and glossy lips. It’s also available in beige, pink, plum and red hues. #6: Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm, $20, Sephora
Another long-standing and classic product, Burt’s Bees is a household name when it come to quality lip balms. Promising eight hours of moisture, the formula gives just a hint of colour – perfect for a natural, everyday look. The botanical waxes and shea butter in this softly tinted balm also nourishes. There are six sheer, wearable and flattering shades to choose from – Hisbiscus (pictured), Pink Blossom (a classic pink), Red Dahlla (a dark red), Rose (a medium red-pink tone), Sweet Violet (a deep fuchsia pink) and Zinnla (a nude colour). #7: 3INA The Lip Oil Balm, $19
This lip balm from the London-based brand also comes in six shades, from a deep purple (pictured) to a sheer green. The protective balm is concocted from a rich mix of four different oils. There’s argan oil, which hydrates and contains vitamin E, helping to maintain elasticity and collagen; avocado oil, which has regenerative and moisturising properties; jojoba oil, which balances the acidity of the skin and activates the metabolism of elastin; olive oil, which softens and moisturises, and is very rich in antioxidants. #8: Kjaer Weis Lip Tint, US$52 (S$71), Net-a-Porter
Housed in an interesting rectangular case, this lip tint is ideal for those who prefer to keep their look subtle and natural. The balm-like formula is saturated with soothing beeswax and jojoba seed oils for long-lasting moisture and comfort. Containing antioxidant-rich gardenia florida fruit extract and anti-aging rosa rubiginosa seed oil, this certifed organic lip tint is free from parabens and artificial colouring, and comes in seven different shades. It is best to apply with fingers, or for a more defined look, use a lip brush. #9: The Body Shop Lip Juicers, $14
This ultra-cute lip balm is inspired by none other than fruit smoothies. Each of the five colours are whimsically named – Strawberry, Pomegranate & Aloe (pictured); Raspberry, Beetroot & Ginger (a pale pink); Kiwi, Kale & Watermelon (a light green); Acai, Blueberry & Ginger (a dark purple); Coconut, Passionfruit & Carrot (a nude pink). The formula is made from a blend of shea butter, marula oil and organic olive oil, while the mouth-watering scents will make this lip balm good enough to eat. #10: ILIA Tinted Lip Conditioner, $38
This lip balm offers natural sun protection with SPF 15 – great for that summer beach getaway. The cocoa and shea butter formula helps to condition and soften lips, while a host of botanical ingredients combine with a rich blend of antioxidant oils from organic avocado, sesame, cranberry and passionflower extracts. There are six rather neutral shades available, which all promise to flatter most skin tones. Choose from a lighter orangey-red to nude browns to a dark burgundy.
