Tinted Lip Balms are the Double-Duty Agents We Never Leave the House Without
From newly-discovered favourites to ones we've remained faithful to for years, these are the tinted lip balms we swear by for healthy-looking, pillowy soft lips.| August 26, 2020
Before I was of age to dabble into makeup, I would play pretend with lip balm. Because they weren’t technically cosmetic, lip balms bypassed my stereotypical strict Asian mom. Growing into my tweens, my trusty tubes of lip balm never left my side. And it’s a habit that has stuck with me well into adulthood. It’s my smelly pillow equivalent – if you know, you know.
Like how scrolling through your Instagram feed triggers a dopamine release in the brain, I’m convinced swiping on generous layers of lip balm throughout the day has a similar effect on me. The tinted ones, in particular, have proven to be a saving grace in the new mask-wearing norm that we’ve all been gradually easing into.
Tinted lip balms are the loungewear equivalent of makeup – comfortable without compromising on the cute. Here, we’ve rounded up a comprehensive list of long-time favorites alongside newly discovered gems that lend the lips a wash of colour while performing double-duty to keep them pillowy soft.
