Tinted lip balms are a godsend. Not only do they moisturise your lips and prevent them from being chapped, but they also add a hint of colour and sheen that brightens your whole complexion, making them perfect for a no-makeup makeup look. So, we’ve rounded up 8 tinted lip balms in Singapore for days when you want lip colour and hydration but want to avoid full-on pigmented lipstick or lipgloss.
#1 Dear Dahlia Blooming Edition Lip Paradise Colour Balm ($47)

Dear Dahlia's Blooming Edition Lip Paradise Color Balm gives you the dewy finish of a lip gloss sans the tackiness, which is great for those who cannot stand the sticky texture of some hydrating lip products. We love the pretty soft pink, nude and mauve shades in this range, which are all super flattering for Asian skin tones. Swipe once for a natural my-lips-but-better look, or build up a few layers for a stronger hint of colour.
#2 Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm ($23)

Burt’s Bees’ tinted lip balm is known for leaving your lips soft and supple for a really long time. This is all thanks to the brand’s famous beeswax and shea butter formula, which provides up to eight hours of hydration. There are six available shades on the catalogue, so you will be able to find one that complements your skin tone, whether it is a rose pink, mauve red or peachy nude.
#3 Nivea Shine Lip Balm ($4.27)

You may know NIVEA for its moisturising creams, but did you know it also carries tinted lip balms that are fruit-flavoured? Besides hydrating the lips with natural oils for an entire day, they also smell like strawberry, peach or watermelon, plus give the lips a subtle sheen respective to each fruit colour.
#4 Tarte Sea H20 Balm Lip Tint ($36)

Whether you want dewy, plump lips or colour payoff like lipstick, Tarte’s vegan lip tint does it all. This product is packed with all the ingredients known to deliver optimal hydration - aloe, coconut oil and squalene - and is stocked in eight neutral tones. All of them can be applied lightly for a soft colour or built up for full creamy coverage that's great for any occasion.
#5 Dior Addict Lip Glow Colour Reviver Balm ($57)

Infused with cherry oil and natural ingredients, Dior’s tinted lip balm protects your lips from dryness for a whole day. It also reacts with the moisture level of your lips, revealing a unique shade of pink that you can wear on its own as a lip balm or as a primer under lipstick. There are nine colours to choose from, and they all come in pretty couture cases. Dior also launched a new shade, 031 Strawberry for ambassador Jisoo's birthday earlier this year!
#6 Innisfree Glow Tint Lip Balm ($11)

Cult-favourite brand Innisfree is highly-raved for its skincare range that uses only the kindest ingredients from Jeju. But don’t forget its tinted lip balm, which is equally deserving of the hype. With five different natural yet stunning shades, this lip product has plant oils that provide nourishment and a slick texture, all while ensuring your lips stay beautifully coloured for long.
#7 Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm ($33)

Clinique’s tinted lip balm is loaded with mango and shea butter which nutrify parched lips and give them a glossy finish. It’s also a lot more pigmented than the other lip balms in this list, so you can expect more colour payoff from all five available shades.
#8 Butter London Plush Rush Tinted Lip Treatment ($29)

Butter London’s tinted lip balm comes in four shades that look like dark rose and burgundy tones but actually translate to a natural, sheer wash of colour that is simply gorgeous. It’s filled with shea and Murumuru seed butter as well as castor seed oil to deliver intense moisture for smoother, fuller lips.
