What I love about Ilia is that their sticks are formulated with added skin-care ingredients meant to protect from environmental stressors, and is free of phthalates, sulfates, parabens, gluten, and talc. Ilia's Rosewood wears equally beautifully on your eyes, lips, and cheeks—This is no easy feat, considering the many good-but-not-great examples we tried.

Feeling fruity? In the glorious realm between lip balm and lipstick, you'll find 100 percent pure's fruit pigmented Lip Glaze. A moisturizing base of avocado and cocoa butters, to gently soothe dry, delicate lips. The silky, semi-gloss formula gives your lips a sheer wash of natural color, while nourishing and softening with vitamins and antioxidants. How's that for glory?
Can a lipgloss be effective and non-sticky at the same time? The Elixir Gloss is just that powerful. I'm not sure if it's the infusion of organic Green Tea, Goji and Acai Berry, or the rejuvenating botanicals, and Jojoba Oil, that make this natural gloss feel like magic on your lips, but I do know wearing it gives the illusion of a plumper pout, and that's just fine by me.
PYT Beauty's Strike Twice Lip Duo is a double-ended lip duo that gives you a shiny gloss on one end and a lushly pigmented lipstick on the other. How fun! It's enriched with Shea Butter, Vitamin E, and a superstar squad of softening natural oils that condition and moisturize your pout. Kisses!
8. Tower 28
So this brand is like your grown-up version of your '90s beauty favorites!

Talk about not tooting your own horn! It is also enriched with Shea butter, Vitamin E and ofcourse Jelly, so you have one job sissy. Swipe and smile!
Lawless is that clean beauty brand that feels anything but natural. With a range of full bright colors, glistening finishes, and the kinds of palettes you would expect to see from the more 'IG-hyped' brands. It's ingredients lists banish the common culprits (like parabens, phthalates, and PEGs) and also take out anything that could be carcinogenic or hormone- and endocrine-disrupting. Consider it proof that you can get both in one sleek package. Glide on its soft matte liquid for guaranteed selfie-worthy results.
Certainly not the least of the list, the Undone Lipstick by Kosas is both subtle and high impact, generously offering 8 botanical oils in its pigments to heal, hydrate and nourish, so you don't just look good, you feel good too, while It's subtle pink undertone help bring life to your natural lip color.
