Pretty Lip Balms That Think They're Glosses Too

ChapStick is great. Cherry ChapStick, better. And when it comes to lip color, I always put a premium on moisture over hue. But why not have the best of both worlds? The balms below each do a great job softening chapped lips, but you'll also get a different lip gloss-like effect from each one, so there's no need to layer. Or carry around two tubes in that tiny clutch.

Shine: I expected Treat Sweet Butter Tinted Lip Balm ($10) to smell sugary and candy-like, but was pleasantly surprised by the more sophisticated rose-petal scent. The balm is moisturizing and super shiny without being sticky.

Color: on10's Dr. Pepper Berries & Cream In Good Taste Lip Conditioner ($9) is a sheer berry color that can certainly hold its own against gloss, and did an outstanding job softening lips – just like you'd expect from a full-time balm.

Shimmer: NARS Lip Treatment in Sabrina ($24) comes in the same sleek tube as the rest of the company's lipsticks, so even if you're a lipstick-avoidant like me, you can still do the uncap and twist up thing – very old-world glamorous – only what you get is a soothing shimmery pink balm, not a chalky super-pigmented red.
