12 Moisturizing Lipsticks That Will Prevent Colder Weather From Drying Out Your Lips

Of course extra moisture is needed during the winter, when the air is just too dry. But that sneaky transition weather that rolls around in the fall is just as much (if not more) responsible for wreaking havoc on the skin. This is why a good moisturizing lipstick during this time is a necessity. Regular lipsticks (especially matte formulas) already do their best to suck the moisture out of lips. But when paired with colder, drier air than what skin has been accustomed to during the summer months, lips don't stand a chance.

But with moisturizing lippies, lips can actually make it through the day without shriveling or cracking. And while some lipsticks might advertise their hydration factor, the best way to know if a lippie will offer the level of moisture you need is to check the ingredients. One aspect hydrating lipsticks will have over regular ones is a higher level of natural butters, waxes, and/or oils. That means mango, shea, or coconut butter, and any sort of seed oil, to name a few. And ingredients like Vitamin E and hyaluronic acid are always beneficial, too. So whether you prefer a satin, matte, or sheer finish, here are the lipsticks, lip creams, and lip tints that will keep your pout both colored and hydrated when the air turns dry.
