12 Best Natural Organic Tinted Lip Balms of 2022

Best natural tinted lip balms

Looking for natural and organic tinted lip balms that come in pretty colors, use clean ingredients and hydrate lips?  Clean tinted lip balms come in many forms – some are highly pigmented, some give UV ray protection, some are high sheen and others shimmer. But who doesn’t love a barely-there balm with a hint of color and sheen. When you don’t feel like wearing lipstick and you’re not in the mood for a lip gloss, tinted lip balms are simply the best. We’ve come a long way from our Lip Smacker Days, you and I, and our lips simply deserve the best. From chic to granola crunchy, organic tinted lip balms all have one thing in common – to moisturize the heck outta those lips.

Best organic tinted lip balms

I’ve used so many different kinds of clean lip balms over the course of a decade from Whole Foods staples like EcoLips to luxury Henne Organics and I’m here to finally share all the details. Clean beauty brands are always launching new tinted lip balms, so there’s always a wide variety of organic and natural lip balms to discover. I’m sharing the best OG ones and some of my favorite new tinted lip balms.

As I always try to be transparent and bring awareness to the nuances of clean beauty, some of these brands use both natural + synthetic ingredients and some are 100% natural. For example, ILIA is not a 100% natural makeup brand and uses artificial colorants.

Because what we put on our lips is so important (we end up ingesting 10 pounds of lip product over our lifetime!), I’ll be including full ingredients list of every tinted lip balm.

Ilia balmy tint Hydrating lip balm

 

ILIA Balmy Tint Hydrating Lip Balm

Lip products are ILIA’s specialty. It’s what started it all. ILIA’s lip conditioners were their first product ever and the brand was known for creating natural, high-performance lip products in their early days. The cult favorite lip conditioner is now the Balmy Tint Hydrating Lip Balm, which is just a fancy way of saying “tinted lip balm.”

Offered in 8 shades and made with tons of natural good-for-your lips ingredient (but also artificial dyes to achieve their color), ILIA tinted lip conditioners (now Balmy Tint Hydrating Lip Balm) moisturize lips with Sea Succulent, Rosehip Seed Oil, Castor Seed Oil, Shea Butter and more.

They are semi-sheer so one swipe of ILIA tinted lip balm will provide just a subtle hint of color with your natural lip color still dominant. If you want more pigment then you’ll need to do multiple swipes. ILIA Balmy Tint Hydrating Lip Balm is a buttery balm that feels very moisturizing without being over the top greasy. If you prefer a drier tinted lip balm (luxury) then check out Henne Organics.

Raw Elements Pink Shimmer Lip SPF 30

Raw Elements Pink Shimmer Lip SPF 30

As a sunscreen addict, I can’t imagine not protecting my lips with SPF because Lips Are Skin Too. One of my favorites over the years has been *certified* natural and OG organic sunscreen brand Raw Elements Pink Shimmer Lip SPF 30. This is a brand so dedicated to being all natural and proving their claims that they went ahead and got certified for it. I love the pop of pink from this lip balm, which has plenty of pigment power I truly only need one swipe. The texture of the lip balm is grainy, which was off putting at first as I’m so used to perfectly smooth balms, but I got over it. They’re highly moisturizing and buttery and I appreciate the high SPF 30 instead of SPF 15. (It has Shimmer in the name but this is actually a matte color.)
