Try tinted lip treatments for a pared-down pout

If you don't want the high wattage blast of colour offered by traditional lipsticks, or super-shiny lip gloss, a barely there lip tint is the way forward. The no-makeup movement is gathering steam thanks to singer Alicia Keys, who has decided to embrace going au naturale. But while everyone may not quite be so confident, starting with a subtle lip may be the way to go.

Tinted balms are the ideal middle ground if you want to embrace a pared-down make-up look. Unlike traditional lipstick, there's no pressure to constantly check your edges aren't bleeding, and it doesn't have the drying effect of lipstick. A barely there tint will enhance your natural beauty for an easy, polished look, and if you're applying on the go, it isn't quite as tricky as trying to get the perfect Hollywood pout.

Some lip treatments include ingredients designed to plump your lips for a fuller look, including natural ingredients like shea butter and vitamin E to hydrate and moisturise the delicate lip area.

With tints ranging in eye-catching shades from candy pink to berry red, upgrade your look in seconds with the best lip tint treatments around. And you won't even need to pop open your mirror to apply.
