Traditional lipstick is great but it has its time and place. Going to be at the office for eight hours? A red lip is probably overkill if you're just sitting at your desk. Headed to a three-hour bottomless brunch? You're not going to be thinking about touchups as you down mimosas. For those days when you want to keep things low-key (which, let's be real, is probably most days), reach for a lip tint for low maintenance, yet still totally pretty, lip color.

Lip tints are on the sheer side, so they're easy to wear. Plus, they're way more moisturizing than the lipsticks you're used to, so you won't have to worry about being left with a flaky pout. It makes complete sense, then, that lip tint would be one of the most commonly searched terms on Pinterest. Here are 15 of our favorite lip tints of the moment.
