Jones Road Cool Gloss ($22)
Lightweight and glossy without being sticky or tacky, tap a few dabs of Cool Gloss on both your lips and cheeks for a natural, flushed look that never looks too wet. This luscious gloss comes in six tinted shades and a clear option.
Hyaluronic acid gives lips a boost of hydration, but it’s the light reflecting particles in these eight vibrant shades that give lips that juicy, plumped-up look without the irritating ingredients found in traditional lip plumpers.
Upness CBD Balmie ($20)
The perfect accessory for dry, chapped lips, this CBD balm soothes and conditions with hemp extract, shea butter and aloe. Layer it over or under lipstick or use alone to give lips a calming, moisturizing treatment on the go.

Merit Beauty Shade Slick ($24)

These mini nude lip glosses in shades FLESH FANTASY and FLESH 6 are not only gorgeous collectables, they’re also high-shine and super hydrating.
Soft, plump and minty are how lips will feel and taste using this buttery daily treatment. Shea and avocado do their thing to soften, but it’s the peptides that help lock in moisture.
Things can get really dry under that mask all day. This all-in-one balm, mask, tint and gloss helps keep lips in check using shea butter, jojoba and peppermint oil.
Manna Kadar’s beautiful pinky nude LipLocked shades serve as a primer and lipstick in one. The vitamin E–enriched formula helps keep lips creamy with a semi-matte finish that ensures the color doesn’t budge.
No two Marbelous lip shades are ever the same, as the casings for the tinted balm are all unique. The marble design gives a hint of color as ceramides in the formula plump and coconut oil softens. Just like brand’s beloved Glimmer and Flower pH Balms, this one is functional and fun.
The strawberry and mango flavor of this ultra-nourisher will keep you rolling it on all day. While traditional lip balms may dry lips out over time, Lip Gleam No. 1’s organic botanical butters and cold-pressed oils give a natural nourishment and protection.
