  • 3 min read


From buying organic veggies at the farmer's market to sporting healthy skin (with maybe a hint of makeup), summer is all about going au naturale! Are you with us? Good, because we have a secret weapon for a natural makeup look— tinted lip balm. Specifically, tinted lip balm with SPF in the form of LipDrink Lip Balm.

Expert Tinted Lip Balm Tips

We have five (yup, 5!) shades of LipDrink SPF 15 Lip Balm, and we chatted with Global Educator Edgar Dominguez to find out just why we love this summer essential so much.

What makes LipDrink Lip Balm with SPF 15 so special?

EDGAR: LipDrink Lip Balm with SPF 15 is a truly clean lip balm that is safe to wear for all seasons. The first thing that makes LipDrink special is that it contains a physical sunscreen not chemical, like many out there. It's not petroleum-based— petroleum may cause allergic reactions— and doesn't contain mineral oils that prevent skin from breathing. Lastly, there are no synthetic colors & dyes and no artificial fragrances.

Why is it important to wear a lip balm with SPF?

EDGAR: Our lips require special treatment, and need proper care. We have to remember lips do not have oil-producing glands. If your lips aren't treated well, they are more susceptible to being dry and showing fine lines. Healthy, well-treated, and protected lips show signs of youth. So, wearing SPF on your lips is a must, not only does it protect them from sun damage that creates lines, but it also assists in protection from skin cancer causing rays. Remember to reapply LipDrink Lip Balm with SPF 15 every couple of hours.

Which Lip Balm is best for each skin tone, and is this a lip balm for dark lips?

EDGAR: Sheer LipDrink Lip Balm works for people of all skin tones, and here are my suggestions for specific complexions:
  • The best, tinted lip balm shade for fair skin tones is Flirt Lip Drink Lip Bam.
  • FlirtLipDrink Lip Balm is also great if you have a light skin tone that isn't quite fair.
  • I recommend CrushLipDrink Lip Balm as a good tinted lip balm shade for people with medium skin.
  • BuffLipDrink Lip Balm is a good choice for ladies with olive skin tone.
  • If you have a darker skin tone, my recommendation for tinted lip balm is Tease LipDrink Lip Balm.

What are your favorite ways to layer LipDrink with other lip products?

EDGAR: My first tip is to always begin with Sugar&Butter Lip Exfoliator/Plumper, before applying any other lip product.
