Face it, there’s nothing less sexy than dry, chapped lips. And just like how we need to moisturise our faces every day, lip balms help to hydrate and protect our puckers. However, many women tend to skip out on applying balms, preferring instead to go straight for their lipstick.
And while it’s actually recommended to layer a balm before your lip colour (it not only protects but also helps your lipstick glide on more smoothly for a better finish), Singaporeans tend to prefer a fast makeup regime and avoid layering products.
Our fuss free solution: using a pigmented tinted lip balm. They not only nourish, soften and moisturise, but also give colour that is stronger than the subtle wash that you usually associate with a tinted balm. Think of them as a lighter version of a glossy lipstick but with double the skin-loving benefits. These are our top picks.
