SOS—These 17 Lip Balms Will Actually Protect You From Chap City This Season
According to our beauty editors.

Finding your ultimate lip balm is kind of like finding your ultimate partner. We want a multipurpose product that can weather the storm when the going gets rough, something composed of the utmost quality, and that will never leave us hanging in Flake City. That said, when it comes to lip balms (even the "best" formulas), we're all too often left disappointed, quickly kicking them to the curb. My beauty PIC Courtney Higgs and I have kissed a lot of frogs within the lip balm dating pool qne we're here to set you up with our favorite very eligible lip balms. From formulas spiked with SPF and skincare-grade ingredients like hyaluronic acid to to the prettiest tubes packed with the most flattering of tints and finishes, we swear the below 17 options will do some serious battle against dry, chapped lips. Keep scrolling!

Why you'll love it: "I've been wearing this $8 strawberry-flavored lip balm since high school, and it keeps my lips hydrated for a full 24 hours—no re-application necessary." 

Why you'll love it: "This advanced therapy version of Fresh's cult-classic balm is one of my favorites. It goes on clear, plumps your lips, and offers an extra-strong dose of smooth, hyaluronic acid–infused hydration that lasts and lasts and lasts. It's amazing under lipstick."

Why you'll love it: "This is the balm I always have with me at the airport and when I'm traveling—it delivers a slick coat of dewy, creamy nourishment and has the most addictive orange-vanilla scent."

Why you'll love it: "This raspberry-popsicle tinted balm from Tata Harper is one of my favorite beauty products of all time, in all categories—it hydrates, boosts lip volume, treats, and delivers the most flattering punch of juicy color."

Why you'll love it: "Perhaps the most iconic of any lip balm, La Mer's signature peppermint-patty smelling balm features the brand's trademark Miracle Broth to instantly give your lips a softer, smoother, all-around healthier feel. It's the one I keep on my nightstand because it's not too slippery or greasy, so I don't feel like it gets all over my silk pillowcases like some other balms."

Why you'll love it: "This is the best lip-plumping balm in existence—plus, it actually keeps your lips smooth and moisturized and adjusts to the unique pH of your lips for a customized shade of pink. The shade Big-O is my fave."

Why you'll love it: "If you're a fan of Nars's cult-classic blush, you also need this shiny, peachy-pink lip blam in your life."

Why you'll love it: "I'm convinced Kosas makes the very best lipsticks in all the land, but I reach for these tinted balms when my lips need a little more TLC and I'm looking for a slightly more understated lip color sitch. I'm obsessed with both Rush and Pulse and am begging the brand come out with even more color options—that's how much I adore the formula."

Why you'll love it: "I'm obsessed with this lip treatment balm from It Cosmetics—it's a pH-adjusting, shade-shifting rosy hue that's been in my makeup bag for years, and I'm convinced it is the best antidote for makeup and no-makeup days alike. Plus, it keeps lips supremely shiny, soft, and moisturized—even in the dead of winter and bitter winds and cold!"

Why you'll love it: "I'm so damn obsessed with this iconic blam from Glossier. Untinted, the flavor called Birthday not only tastes and smells like fluffy Funfetti sheet cake, it also has the prettiest flecks of glitter and shimmer without looking tacky or like you're trying too hard. I love layering it underneath and on top of my favorite lipsticks."

Why you'll love it: "Literally every single celebrity and makeup artists is obsessed with Dr. PawPaw. The brand makes a number of lip formulas, but this adjusting peachy-pink shade of lip balm is my favorite—it's $8, and you can even use it on your cheeks for a sweet flush of color that also banishes chap and windburn." 

Why you'll love it: "This Parisian lip twist from Sisley is another one of my favorite makeup products of all time and across all categories. The colors are divine, the finish is glossy and hydrating, and they're just the all-around perfect lip balm. I've hoarded quite a few of the colors over the years, but this bright shade of coral is a standout. Or, if you don't want so much tint, there are also nude and super-sheer pink options." 

Why you'll love it: "I agree with Erin, this salve is wonderful. It’s nice and thick without being sticky and actually leaves your lips feeling hydrated instead of just greasy. I can’t remember what life was like before BDC, but I can only imagine that I was living a perpetually parch-lipped existence." 

Why you'll love it: "This naturally derived overnight mask stays put on your lips no matter how much tossing and turning you do throughout the night. I love waking up with soft, hydrated lips."

Why you'll love it: "This velvety smooth lip conditioner is the perfect companion to keep on hand when you’re on the go because it doesn’t require any fingertips for application. It’s super light and refreshing. Once you swipe it on, there’s no fussing to keep hair from getting stuck in it."

Why you'll love it: "You never think about the possibility of your lips getting sunburnt, until your lips get sunburnt. It’s no fun, and this SPF 30 balm makes sure that never happens."

Why you'll love it: "This tried-and-true ointment can be used to treat dry skin anywhere on the body, including lips. No frills here, but it gets the job done." Up next: The 9 Best Lipsticks, According to Mindy Kaling. This article was originally published at an earlier date and has been updated.

25 Items a Celebrity Stylist Thinks Are Worth Buying for Summer

Most Wanted is a weekly series in which one Who What Wear team member or friend of the brand will share the top 25 finds on their current wish list.

From our favorite sandal brands to our go-to basics to the affordable dresses we currently have our eyes on, our editorial team has been sharing tons of great items to consider for your summer wardrobe. To make sure we're not biased, we like to also tap other experts for their trend advice and shopping picks, so this week we reached out to celebrity stylist and fashion consultant Cat Pope to find out what she thinks is worth purchasing this summer. "My personal approach will be to support smaller businesses wherever possible and champion those that are responsible in their production and sourcing," she says. And lucky for you (and us!) she agreed to share her exact favorites, along with her expert styling tips. Behold the 25 items she's betting big on for summer.

"These dresses travel really well, and this amazing color really embodies summer for me."

"This fun little style is a great evening option for summer and comes in a color combo that can be worn a million ways."

"These bodysuits are so versatile and wear so well over time, making them a worthy investment."

"These are definitely the shape of the season."

"The off-the-shoulder neckline is a real winner in summer, and this cream linen is timeless and versatile."

"Another great one that is timeless and versatile. I love the leg slit."

"Ephemera pieces are figure-flattering and always come in gorgeous prints. This one is a beautiful color palette."

"Rixo is my go-to summer brand. The prints are a great way to incorporate color, and the fabrics are light and breezy to wear."

"These are special enough to be a focal point of any casual summer outfit, especially when your hair is up."

"Everyone needs a catchall for summer days."

"This piece seems cool and effortless and of course has a comfort factor."

"I like to think of great ways to improve pieces you already have, like adding a belt to cinch a dress or shirt."

"A fresh and fun take on a classic. It’s perfect for work or play."

"Since we are having a lot of Facetimes from the shoulders up, a hair accessory makes a lot of sense. These don't feel too fussy."

"This is such a stylish redux of a classic summer piece. You’ll find so many ways to wear it."

"Everyone is spending a lot more time at home, so why not do it in style and comfort?"

"I love the softness of these pieces and that you can be comfortable but still feel sexy."

"Vegan shoes are never this chic! It’s wonderful that there are finally some brands instilling as much attention into their design as they are their mission."

"Tie-dye is always a good move for summer. The cargo pant is also the pant of the season, so this pair is a match made in heaven."

"As an Australian, I’m very conscious of sun protection and never go anywhere in summer without a hat. Bucket hats are great as you can pop them in your bag."

"The pants embody the perfect lounge feeling we all seek in athleisure but are lightweight and dressy."

"I met these designers last year, and their shoes are just heaven."

I love that Gigi is always such a conscious and thoughtful designer. Her pieces are gorgeous, and this mask is no exception.

"Everyone has been spending a lot more time at home, so homewares are more popular than ever. I love these fun and vivacious designs to bring color into the home."

"I love the look of gold jewelry, and strawberry quartz sounds just delicious."
