The Tinted Balm

The Tinted Balm enhances lips with a sheer wash of color that builds with each application. It nourishes, plumps and renews for softer, smoother, healthier-looking lips. Formulated with a hydrating blend of plant-based butters and oils, including Shea butter, Vitamin E and Candelilla wax, and powered by Augustinus Bader’s TFC8® technology, each application moisturizes the lips and protects them from environmental stressors.
