As much as we love the cozy outfits, scary movie marathons and all things fall-flavored, we’re not big fans of what autumn does to our skin and lips. Fortunately, there are so many products out there that not only protect our lips from that dry, chilly air, but some even offer up additional benefits (like plumping and softening superpowers) to actually make our lips look better than ever! Keep reading for some top-rated lip products that we’ll definitely be toting around throughout the colder seasons.
1. Dior Addict Lip Glow Balm, $35
You can’t curate a list of top-rated lip products and not include this iconic Dior lip balm! This beautiful balm is infused with cherry oil, shea butter and Color Reviver technology that adapts to the pH of lips to reveal a custom glow for 6 hours. Doubling up on custom color and lip care? Yes, please!
This Nordstrom-exclusive, limited-edition set includes six smoothing lip treatments in a variety of colors, from sheer Rosé to bold Coral. It even includes the best-selling Sugar Lip Treatment that works immediately to nourish and repair the look of dry lips.
3. Buxom Power-Full Plump Lip Balm,
Available in three colors, this extra-hydrating lip balm works with your individual pH levels to transform your lips into their most flattering custom shade of pink. It also includes plumping powers to keep your lips looking full and healthy.
Stash this fast-working day balm in your pockets and bags, stat. It glides on like a dream for instant conditioning and hydration and thanks to the natural waxes, moisture will be sealed in for hours.
5. Bobbi Brown Lip Balm,
If you’re not a fan of the greasies that accompany many lip balms, you’ll love this option! It’s made with wheat germ and avocado and olive oils that instantly work to comfort chapped lips, and it’s also formulated with beeswax and aloe vera to hydrate and smooth.
6. Caudalíe Lip Conditioner, $12
This antioxidant-rich lip conditioner not only provides much-needed protection for the colder, drier months, but you can even use it as a prep step before your lip color!
7. Aveda Lip Saver, $10
We’re huge fans of Aveda’s refreshing products so naturally, we’re all over this moisturizing lip balm! It contains naturally-derived waxes to soothe stressed lips and the refreshing cinnamon leaf, clove, and anise oils smell *amazing*.
8. Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1, $10
This balm has been a Kiehl’s classic since the 1960s, so you know they’re doing something right! This particular option is unscented, but you can also shop this balm in cranberry, mint, or mango if you’d like a little scent!
9. Le Labo Lip Balm, $15
Searching for something non-sticky and unscented? You’ll love this one! This no-frills tube contains a plant-based formula is made with shea butter to nourish, olive oil to moisturize and jojoba seed to soften.
10. Clinique Superbalm Lip Treatment,
If your lips are already chapped and in need of some saving, this deeply hydrating balm works to replenish moisture loss overnight and can also be applied throughout the day in place of lip color for a glossy, natural sheen.
11. Clarins Lip Comfort Oil, $26
To be honest, this treatment oil is almost *too* pretty to use! With a pure plant oil formula (a blend of hazelnut and jojoba oils) this treatment enhances lips and forms a protective layer of color to lock in moisture. (It also comes in six other gorgeous shades!)
