Have you been searching for a lip balm that not only gives you super moisturized and nourished lips but also has a tinted color for the extra wow factor? We know you have. Lip balms have been taking over the lip care world with so many varieties to choose from. We have gathered some evidence for you on the best lip balms you can buy which also protect your lips from the sun’s UV rays. If you are unsure whether lip balm should be your go-to lip care product, we have added a load of information on the different products on the market to help you figure it out.
The Difference between Tinted Lip Balms, Lipsticks, Lip Gloss, Stain
Lip balm is a completely separate product to other makeup you might put on your lips. Lip balm’s main purpose is to provide relief for your lips if they are chapped or dry. Some can even relieve cold sores and stomatitis. Most people associate lip balms with the ability to nourish and moisturize your lips, however not many consider them to be used in your makeup routine. Tinted lip balms have changed the game, however. Now you can buy a lip balm that provides your lips with all the goodness they need as well as adding a touch of color.
Lipstick, as we all know, is a traditional product most women have in their handbags, pockets, makeup bags and sometimes purses. We love that lipsticks come in such a wide variety of colors. You can actually buy a lipstick that is blue from some cosmetic brands. Lipstick also has other categories depending on the finish they apply to your lips, such as a matte lipstick.
Lipgloss is another cosmetic product that you can now find in a variety of shades. Traditionally, lip gloss was used to add a shine to your lips. But as cosmetic brands have developed, most now offer the choice of a range of colors too. So now, you can have shiny and colorful lips. We do need to emphasize that, although Lipgloss makes your lips feel shiny and nourished, it is not a product that has any moisturizing benefits.
Lip Stain is another cosmetic product which gives you the option of adding color to your lips. Typically, this product is designed to stay on much longer than a lipstick or gloss and you will usually apply it with a gel or a liquid. This one is great if you want a really eye-popping color that you don’t have to continuously reapply.

How To DIY Your Own Tinted Lipbalm
There are loads of options available to you in stores however they don’t always come for an affordable price and you may benefit from making your own tinted lip balm. We have found some great ingredients you can add to coconut oil and shea butter for some great tints.
Red food coloring or using madder root powder will help you to create a really nice red shade or you can try cocoa powder for something a bit darker. Just like any coloring, the more you add, the richer the color. Another great tip; if you add some peppermint oil to your homemade lip balm, it will have extra soothing benefits and will be just like our favorite Burts Bees tinted lip balm.
So, whether you decide to nourish your lips with a store-bought product, or alternatively make your own, you now have absolutely no excuse to not have super soft and well cared for lips!
