Honest Beauty Created The Pretty, Buildable Pink Lip Color Every Makeup Bag Needs

Honest Beauty

When it comes to choosing a lip product that has the best of both worlds, a tinted lip balm is where you should turn. They give the juicy wash of color you'd expect from a lipstick or stain, while providing the long-lasting, non-sticky moisture and shine you'd want from a gloss. And if you've been looking for an affordable clean beauty alternative to your go-to balm, you're in luck, because the Honest Beauty Tinted Lip Balm is officially available — and it comes in seven pretty shades.

Clean wellness and beauty brand Honest Beauty is all about offering up safe, healthy, and effective options for all the items you rely on every day. And especially during the cold, dry months, a dependable lip balm probably makes your list of must-haves. So truly, Honest Beauty's latest launch, a sheer-but-buildable Tinted Lip Balm, couldn't have arrived at a better time.

The vegan, cruelty-free balm, $8.99 and available on Honest Beauty's site, Target.com, and Amazon.com (and landing at Walgreens stores in March), is sure to keep lips super soft for up to eight hours. That's because its formula is infused with rich avocado oil that'll moisturize and condition your pout, and antioxidant-packed acai and pomegranate extracts that'll keep that hydration locked onto lips for longer than a basic balm.

Thankfully, the brand knows that just because your lips are craving lots of moisture, doesn't mean you don't want a pretty, sheer wash of color to enhance your pout. That's why Honest Beauty's new balm comes in a total of seven lovely shades, so you're certain to find one fit for any occasion.

Swipe on your favorite shade in a single layer for during the day, then build on the color with bit more product before you leave the office for after-work drinks. Fruit Punch, a fiery, coral red is ideal for spring, as is the pretty hot-pink Dragon Fruit shade. Or, if you prefer no color at all but like a slight shimmer, opt for White Nectarine, a transparent shade with a subtle pearlescent finish.

The hydrating tinted balms are also bee-friendly, thanks to their lack of beeswax on the ingredient list — plus, they're also free of parabens, silicones, synthetic fragrances, mineral oil, and other iffy ingredients, so if you've got sensitive skin you can feel safe giving these a try.
