With so many different lip balms, glosses, and lipsticks out there, it can be difficult to choose a product that is just right for you. Some are too cakey, too dehydrating, or transfer onto every straw, cup, and fork that your lips touch, which is obviously not ideal.
Out of thousands upon thousands of products submitted by brands (we’re not exaggerating), we found the 13 best lip products for our 2022 Healthy Beauty Awards. Our selections were based on dermatologists’ criteria. Then, each and every product was vetted by over 50 testers including SELF editors, doctors, dermatologists, influencers, parents, and more.
You’ll find that these 13 lip products are long-lasting, transfer-proof, and complimentary to your unique skin tone–qualities any great makeup product should have. Read on to see all of our winners, and check out the other 2022 Healthy Beauty Award winners here.
