Must-Have Lip Balms

September 1, 2020 Taylor Krupinski

Lip balm is a beauty staple. From no-makeup makeup days to full glam night outs, prepping your lips is a step in every routine. When it comes to balms, you can never have too many! Here’s an amazing lip balm for every reason:

For moisture

Lanolips- The Original 101 Ointment 

This multipurpose superbalm, formulated with lanolin, is intensely hydrating. It can be used to moisturize anything from chapped lips, to dry cuticles, to brittle nails. 

For tint

Glamsquad- Take a Tint

A must have for a sheer, buildable color. There are 4 gorgeous shades that work for every occasion. Layer it on if you’re looking for more pigment, or use it as a base for other lip products. 


Supergoop!- PLAY Lip Balm SPF 30

Your lips are one of the most sensitive spots on your body, so they need extra protection from the sun. Supergoop! is a cult favorite for sunscreen, and their sun protecting lip balm is also very highly rated. Remember to reapply every 2 hours!

For flavor

Treat Beauty- Jumbo Lip Balm

Treat beauty makes the tastiest lip balms ever. With flavors like marshmallow cream, birthday cake, and candy apple, it’s hard to choose just one. Plus, they really are jumbo- one balm is about the size of a glue stick.

For healing

Laneige- Lip Sleeping Mask

This highly rated lip mask, formulated with hyaluronic acid and minerals, completely heals lips overnight. It softens the skin, locks in moisture, and reduces fine lines, leaving your lips brand new.

For shine

Kopari- Coconut Lip Glossy

Lip gloss has officially made its comeback, but if you’re looking for a product that will moisturize your lips while giving you that glossy look you need this. Ingredients like squalane, shea butter, and coconut oil ensure your lips will feel as hydrated as they look.
