Our top 3 picks
Our Top Picks!
1. Honest Beauty Tinted Lip Balm in Plum Drop
We love Honest Beauty for a few reasons, including the fact that they are EWG certified, dermatologist and physician tested as well as vegan and cruelty-free.Read more
On top of all that, the ingredients in the Honest Beauty Tinted Lip Balm are so awesome we just have to rave about it.
Acai extracts, avocado oil, and pomegranate make this tinted balm the perfect blend of nourishing and antioxidant-rich. It’s formulated without parabens, synthetic fragrances, and silicones as well so you can be sure that it’s gentle even on sensitive skin.
The shade plum drop is a deep berry with slightly brown undertones which is super similar to Elf Cosmetics’ classic Black Cherry!
2. Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey
Clinique’s Almost Lipstick is one of our go-to tinted balms. This balm gives you a sheer wash of color without any added fragrance, alcohol, silicone, mineral oil, or gluten!Read more
Simple ingredients make this balm a great minimalistic choice and a great addition to anyone’s no-makeup-makeup kit.
The iconic Black Honey lip color is a wine color shade. It’s a deep berry with slightly red undertones.
It’s a complex, deep, and universally flattering tinted balm that will give you the most beautiful wash of color.
3. Rms Beauty Hydrating Tinted Daily Lip Balm in Twilight Lane
Talk about hydration, Rms Beauty Hydrating Tinted Daily Lip has got it down! Jojoba oil is rich in antioxidants and absorbs quickly into the skin for the best nourishing formula.Read more
Cocoa seed butter contains vitamin E, providing relief for dry and cracked lips. Candelilla wax is high in vitamins and antioxidants which protect the skin and help it retain moisture over time.
It has a sheer wash of color that looks natural and subtle. The shades are rich and give your whole face a beautiful flush. The shade twilight lane is a berry shade, slightly lighter than the rest on this list with a pink-red undertone.
It’s a beautiful color that looks great on all skin tones.
4. Jouer Cosmetics Essential Lip Enhancer Shine Balm in Dhalia
Jouer Cosmetics Essential Lip Enhancer Shine Balm in Dhalia will give you baby soft lips. This lip gloss formula nurtures, nourishes, conditions, and hydrates your lips for a full, plump pout.Read more
Shea butter protects the lips and helps maintain their soft and supple appearance. Jojoba seed oil moisturizes and softens the lips for long-lasting moisture.
The shade dahlia is one of our go-to berry tints. It’s a warm, brown-toned deep berry. It has slight notes of violet and red to balance out the brown while staying on the warm side to neutralize any cooler pigments on the lips.
It also has less than one percent of synthetic fragrances so even those with sensitive skin can enjoy this balm!
5. NYX Filler Instinct Plumping Lip Balm in Bitten Pout
If you’re looking for a plumping balm and a wash of color, the NYX Filler Instinct Plumping Lip Balm with Hyaluronic Acid is a great product for you.Read more
It has 8 hours of hydration with a super pigmented wash of color and an ultra-shiny finish.
It has all-day comfortable wear with ultimate hydration and a gorgeous flush of color. The shine and gloss-like finish give the lips a visible fullness for a filler effect.
The shade Bitten Pout is a red-toned berry with lots of violet pigments in it. It’s definitely a bolder color and more opaque than most tinted lip balms while still letting your natural lip shine through for that your-lips-but-better effect!
6. Elf Cosmetics Hydrating Core Lip Shine in Ecstatic
The Elf Cosmetics Hydrating Core Lip Shine is absolutely stunning and we need to talk about it.Read more
Vitamin E and other nourishing ingredients in this lip balm’s core give your lips a healthy shine on top of the sheer tint of color. Like most other Elf products, this tinted lip balm is vegan and cruelty-free because, as company policy puts it best, “kindness is chic”!
Ecstatic is super close to the original black cherry. It’s a purple-heavy berry shade with slightly cool undertones which sets it apart from the traditional warm wine shades we see in lip balms like this.
It’s vibrant, beautiful, and the perfect addition to your everyday lip collection.
7. MAC Glow Play Lip Balm in Grapely Admired
One of the pricier options on this list is the MAC Glow Play Lip Balm. MAC is a classic brand that’s been around for decades, dominating the beauty market.Read more
Their Glow Play Lip Balm is super nourishing, conditioning your lips all day long. It combines color and care for the ultimate tinted lip makeup.
The shade Grapely Admired is also a deep berry, but with mauve and neutral brown undertones. It’s slightly cooler-toned and more neutral than the other bold berry dupes we know of.
It’s a bit more opaque as well, giving you a little more than a sheer wash of color.
