Most Helpful Positive Review LOVE - virtually perfect
I own a ton of sheer lipsticks and balms, but I think I've finally found my holy grail lip balm! I have dry skin and like to have really moisturized lips. I'm allergic or sensitive to a lot of plant-based ingredients but not to lanolin, so this is awesome, and definitely the best I've found for the price! The plain 101 ointment is great too, but this cap opens and closes more easily/comfortably for use throughout the day, and the Perfect Nude is seriously my lip color (medium pink, and rarely pale) but better. This goes on glossy-satiny and not sticky and then sinks in for a gorgeous satiny finish that lasts a long time for a balm. No scent, no smell, just a beautiful and pleasant texture. Because of the lack of taste or fragrance, I actually prefer this to some of the comparably hydrating but more expensive balms I own (bite agave, nuxe reve de miel). I love to use this with the mlbb bite lip pencil in shade 010 for a more polished and longer-lasting nude look.
The one caveat is that this formula/packaging combo requires a bit of thought to use without mishap. The formula is very thick when it's cool, and too much will spurt out of the large hole if you squeeze the tube too hard without letting it warm up in your hands first (30 seconds to a minute should do it). I also recommend holding the tube against your lips as you squeeze to help prevent this problem. When the spurt happened to me, I used the excess over my bb cream as a surprisingly long-lasting blush, glossy highlighter, and eye gloss multiple for a really pretty and fresh nude-pink monochrome look. Those with oily skin or darker skin tones may not have luck using it this way, but I'm dry and really fair, so I love it and will definitely use this as a multiple again! I fully intend to repurchase, and will be getting the Rhubarb soon for when I feel like going darker/brighter and pinker.
Most Helpful Critical Review Good color, poor texture
The color is a universally flattering nude. Upon application, the color goes on okay but it does feel thick. Over a few a hours the color fades, loses shine and you get a gross rim of build up around the center of your mouth where your top and bottom lip meet. It's gross! I have keep on checking that the building is not there yet making me look like I didn't wash my face or clean my mouth in the morning. I thought this was because my lips are so dry but...isn't this supposed to be moisturizing??
Reviewed by 74 customers I buy this repeatedly because it's the only thing that works

I put it on before bed and it lasts all night without having to reapply. It is very thick, but it works!
Jenni from MN
Within an hour of wearing this, the two very dry patches on my lower lip were easily sloughed off and the skin below was soft and supple. I will never waste money on another lip product. I have been through them all. The shade perfect nude really is a perfect nude. It's shiny like a gloss but not sticky. I can actually see myself finishing this tube and repurchasing which is something I have never done.
VJ from Atlanta Ga
I use the lanolips regular lip balm and love it. Thought it would be nice to have one with a little tint to it. Really like it!!
Works as promised
Carla the Realtor/Musician from San Antonio, TX
I had been wanting to try this product for a while and finally did. I find when I use with a lipliner, it gives a really nice look without the feel/look of full makeup. More for the office or running errands. It does have a slight taste but nothing that bugs me. I like that it's not sticky or goopy. Color coverage doesn't last very long but I didn't expect it to.
I buy this over and over.
Deb from Loveland Colorado
This is the only thing that helps my chapped lips in this dry Colorado weather! Nothing else works. I put it on at night and it's still on when I wake up! No refreshing needed during the night!
Beautiful but not long lasting
Dodo234 from San Diego
If it wasn't natural and lanolin-based, I probably would hate it as a gloss. But since I am choosing to use better ingredients in my cosmetics, I keep using it. It gets absorbed and feels nocely on my lips. The pri lem though is that the color gets kind of absorbed as well.
Lover of beauty products from Thousand Oaks, California
Love this lip gloss/moisturizer! Having used lanolin before on my lips I know it's a bit heavy but very luxurious feeing. It is sticky BUT it's natural and VERY shiny and color looks fantastic.
Love it! Long lasting and natural looking!

This is the first nude tinted lip balm I've found that truly complements my skin tone. It's also super-moisturizing; within 24 hours I noticed a real improvement.
Actually moisturizes my lips
Chani from Arrakis, CO
I live and was born in Colorado so I've always had chronically dry lips. My unresearched impression is most lip balms work mainly as waxy barriers to stop moisture from escaping (with maybe a few ingredients for putting moisture back in) so I've always gotten limited good out of them. This is the first product I've tried that actually seems to moisturize my lips rather than fighting a losing battle. As a beauty product, however, it's like a bad lip gloss. This may have something to do with the fact that when I purchased it last winter it was frozen solid by the time I brought it in, causing some separation, but the pigment bits come out in blobs (though they can be smoothed out). I love to leave it on for a few hours before wiping it off and applying lipstick, though. It also allows me to skip a lip scrub as in the process of moisturizing it makes the chapped bits separate off my lips without fuss.
Love the balm!
golabjamun from Dallas,TX
This product is quite nice and definitely one of the most hydrating balm out there. It has clean ingredients as well which is a good pro. The shade Rhubarb is wonderful and I want to find a lip product that is that exact shade because it's simply PRETTY. I docked a star because I hate the applicator and the lid and the oozing sticky mess that this kind of packaging causes.
Kels from Tn
This stuff smells & looks amazing. I love it, my lips are always chapped & it helps them a lot while adding a tint! I plan on buying it again & in different shades too.
Alex from CT
Best tinted lip balm on the market, all the other brands I've tried look like lipstick and look ridiculous on me when I have no makeup on (which is when I'll wear lip balm). I religiously buy the perfect nude shade, stays on my lips an impressive amount of time and my lips feel so moisturized and healthy. I hope they never stop making this
Perfect for work
Rita from Cambridge
The balm is so hydrating, I just love everything about it. It gives my lips a nice color (I got the nude shade) and I have very fair skin. I wear it to work, it just looks so natural yet eye catching. Love it!!
Love the color and feel!
Emmykrishe from Michigan
I saw the original of this lip balm mentioned on a YouTube video and came to check it out. When I found the tinted version, I decided it would be fun to try. I'm not a lipstick-wearing type person so this is perfect for me. The nude color is awesome, adds just a little pop but nothing too fancy. And it's not really too shiny as a lip gloss, just right. I'm still hoping that it helps my lips to be a little less dry overall, but I probably just need to use it a little more, so far I've only really put it on once a day or so.
Love this < 3
Cora from California
I got this in a sample from my last purchase and I love this stuff! I received the Perfect Nude color. I have a light complexion with neutral coloring. Blonde hair and blue eyes and this is a gorgeous color against my complexion. The texture isn't sticky so hair doesn't get stuck. Going to buy the full size and try another color! Would recommend!
Best product ever
Kirby from Tacoma
This is the absolute best lip product for anyone who struggles with dry cracked lips. Super hydrating, while covering any lip imperfections, it's the only thing that doesn't make my mouth look crusty. The color I chose is so perfectly natural. I want to buy all this brands products now!
Tint Barely Visible on Pigmented Lips
BrownGirl from Atlanta
I order the Rhubarb hoping to ditch the lipstick or lip stain on more casual days. The color is barely visible on pigmented lips. I'll end up wearing on top of a lip stain. The moisture is amazing and long lasting.
Kbizzzzzz from Ca
I have severely chapped lips. No matter what I do (or how much water I drink) I still have chapped lips and sometimes they bleed. I was using petroleum jelly. Then I bought this! Wow! I love that I get a tinted lip balm that actually hyrdrates my lips! Finally!! Oh but of course I lost it so now I'm buying 2 this time! I highly recommend!
This is great
NJ Shopper from Marlton,NJ
This ads a bit of color with moisture that lasts. I would recommend this product.
Pretty good product!
D from Sc
Consistency is really nice and it wears well. I wanted a nice natural balm. It goes on lighter than what it appears in the packaging. My lips are a bit dark naturally, but the shade looks darker in packaging. It's still a nice product. I'll prob just need to get a diff shade or clear. Still feels nice. Would purchase this brand again.
Lips sooooo smooth!
Princess M from Waynesboro, PA
I first bought the original Lanolips and fell in love immediately. Then I found this little gem with the same hydrating powers with a splash of color. A tiny bit lasts for a long time. I'll never run out of this again!
RobunRG from Houston, TX
Love Lanolips! Very emollient, thick & doesn't feather. Colors are subtle for "natural but better" look.
Just What I Needed
AnnaMK from Bend, OR
Perfect, super-moisturizing lip gloss in a great shade of pink. A winner.
Not a Balm, but a Lip Gloss
Melissa from Ohio
I love this companys hand cream and ethos. However, I was very very surprised by this balm. It doesnt sink into the lips at all, and is a very shiny gloss that sits on top of the lips. I was expecting a tinted lip balm and got a weirdly opaque, ultra shiny gloss. Time to go back to lip stains and pure lanolin over top. Disappointed in this, not even a good lip gloss either.
