Summer is still going strong. Not that we're complaining. But it's around this time of year when we get a little tired of applying tons of makeup. We're talking everything from foundation to mascara to lipstick.
Luckily, there's a solution to the latter. Tinted lip balms. Not only do their sheer formulas allow you to build their color to make your ideal shade, they also moisturize. Because chapped lips can happen just as easily in summer as in winter.
See the slideshow for the tinted lip balms you need in your life.

Pat McGrath Labs Lip Fetish Divinyl Lip Shine, $38
Pat McGrath's lip balm actually looks like lipstick. It's all thanks to the rich color payoff and lacquer-like shine. As if that wasn't enough, it's also kind to your lips boasting soothing emollients, vitamins and antioxidants. This rosy shade simply screams summer.
Glossier Balm Dotcom, $12
This product is the bomb. Pun totally intended. Featuring lip-loving antioxidants and natural emollients, it's the cure for seriously chapped lips. Our favorite hue? This sheer deep red tint aptly named Cherry.
NARS Afterglow Lip Balm, $28
The brand's beloved Orgasm hue also comes in lip balm form. Swipe it on once for a touch of color and golden shimmer. Or layer it on for high-shine results. Plus, its Monoi Hydrating Complex protects your pucker.
Dior Addict Lip Glow, $38
You'd have to be living under a rock if you haven't heard of Dior's lip balm. The colors actually adapt to the pH of lips so everyone gets a custom shade. It's also considered lip care since it has cherry oil, shea butter and sunflower waxes. We recommend trying this sheer fuchsia.
