Nothing says fresh, fun, and low-maintenance like a gorgeous tinted lip balm. Easier to apply than lipstick and more moisturizing than lip gloss, tinted lip balms are the happy medium for your lips. They leave your lips with a gorgeous color while moisturizing at the same time. You can throw them in your bag, and they’re ideal for travel, beach time, or whenever you need a quick burst of color on your lips. Check out our top picks.
