In my purse you’ll usually find no fewer than 5 lip glosses, and it seems I’m not the only one: just peek inside the handbags of the rest of our team for proof. There’s something about lip products that begs to be part of a collection that includes one for every mood, outfit and weather condition. Of course, occasionally a lip balm makes it to cult status for its miraculous moisturizing or plumping abilities, and we couldn’t wait to find out which one each of our beauty council experts chose as their absolute favorite. Keep scrolling to find out, and we’d love to hear in the comments which lip gloss you can’t live without!


Body Deli Rainforest Berry Healing Balm

Just trust me when I tell you that this is the best lip balm you’ll ever buy!

-Jen Pinkston, The Effortless Chic


Jenni Kayne x Earth Tu Face Tea Tree Lip Balm

My favorite is our lip balm made in collaboration with Earth tu Face. It’s made with lavender, tea tree, and rosewood, so it’s amazing and soothing!

Lanolips Tinted Balm SPF 30

When I apply this tinted balm in the morning, my lips stay hydrated all day. It comes in the perfect sheer pink colors — just enough to brighten lips, yet not so much that you need a mirror. And it’s made with medical grade lanolin — hence, the long-lasting moisture.

-Dawn Spinner Davis, Beauty Director at Total Beauty


Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm

I don’t know why women don’t buy these creamy tinted balms by the handful. Super-moisturizing with just a hint of tint, I truly can’t get enough of these and have one in every bag.

Folie Apothecary Cardamom + Vanilla All Purpose Butter 

My friend Nikisha Brunson makes this butter and it works amazing as a lip balm.

Glossier The Balm Dot Com in Cherry

In addition to a lip balm, I like to use it as eyeshadow & highlighter, too.

-Lauren Caruso, Beauty Director at Style Caster


Farmacy Lip Bloom

These are awesome because they are glossy, but not sticky. A rare find!

By Terry Baume de Rose

It’s quite expensive but it’s the best lip gloss hands down. Makes your lips looks so beautiful.

– @laneycrowell, Founder of Crowell Lane Creative


Herbivore Botanicals Coco Rose Lip Tint

It’s a truly all natural lip tint that looks so fresh on and is moisturizing at the same time.

-Nadine Abramcyk, Co-founder of @tenoverten
