The Only Tinted Lip Balm You Need This Season Is Under $20
Tinted lip balms are key to spicing up a minimalist’s makeup routine. Though I love playing with the formulas of punchy pigmented lipsticks, you won’t dare catch me wearing one.
But as I grow more into my adult-self, I realize that plain old Chapstick doesn’t always do the trick. A tint of color can make a huge difference in your look.

What I love about these balms is their super creamy texture. There’s nothing more disappointing than a balm that doesn’t do what balms should do…hydrate.
GLAMGLOW gets two thumbs up for a list of ingredients that is chock full of our favorite hydrators, from shea butter to cocoa oil to sweet almond oil.
Not only are these cute little pods packed with moisture, but they leave lips with a semi-sheer tint of color. Whether you’re into poppy hues or understated nudes, they’ve got one for you. The coverage is completely buildable, so you can go as tinted as you want without overdoing it.
The best part of all is that they retail for under $20 and trust me: you won’t regret it.
