Best tinted lip balms: Nars, Fresh, and Laniege amongst many others
Paint it, red
We wouldn't go as far as to claim it a universal experience, but there is something about missing a step in your usual routine that can leave you feeling bereft and out-of-place. We, for one, are still acclimating to the loss of daily workout sessions at the gym; after-work tipples at a bar; and the mere act of donning our favourite lipsticks. The latter hits particularly hard, as exacerbated by the horrifying visual of our vast collection of lippies gathering dust. The sight alone has prompted us to search for a comprise — which we found in the form of tinted lip balms. Hydrating, nourishing, with a sheer veil of pigment to prevent disastrous smudging, they're just what we need to tide us through. Without further ado, here are ones we've been sporting dutifully, below.
