A Betchy Ranking Of The Internet's Favorite Emotional Support Lip Balms

My mom wasn’t an almond mom…no, she didn’t really care what kind of milk I was drinking and let me have Fruit Loops whenever I craved them but she was the kind of mom who kissed me goodbye and would, without fail, say, “Don’t you think you could use a little color on your lips?” or “Don’t forget gloss!!” So, as I got older, if you ever asked me what I bring to the table  the answer has always been (and always will be) three lipsticks, two glosses, and at least one balm.

The funny thing about the internet, though, is the fact that I immediately realized that I’ve never had a unique experience in my life considering my FYP consistently validates the comfort of having five different viral lip treatments on hand at a time. Why have one when you can have all the best lip gloss and balm the internet has to offer!?!

So, what I’m really here to do is cut through the bullshit and give it to you straight…which TikTok famous lip balms and glosses are actually worth keeping around.

10. Eos Lip Balm

She had her moment in the sun, but let’s face it…She peaked in high school.

9. OG Lip Smackers

Like a therapist that wears too much perfume, she’ll heal your inner child but sooner or later her fragrance will give you the ick.

8. Dior Lip Oil

She’s giving “I have a trust fund and summer in the Hamptons” but that price tag in this economy?!? You could just buy a great dupe for a fraction of the cost (oops).

7. Lancôme Juicy Tubes 

She’s was your BFF when Limited Too was still your weekend hangout spot and sometimes friendships fade…Nothing bad happened per se but, you know the old saying, if you love them let them go.

6. Topicals Slick Salve Glossy Lip Balm

Yeah, she’s amazing and all but, she has commitment issues. And by commitment issues, I mean it’s literally impossible to purchase because it’s never in stock. *le sigh*

5. Glossier Balm Dotcom

Coming in at 5th is the girl boss that’s been around since the mid 2010s. She was iconic when she launched but, just like your yoga instructor, she isn’t the same since she went vegan (IYKYK).

4. Aquaphor

She’s an icon, a legend, and honestly shouldn’t be messed with. 10/10 on efficacy, I just wish she were cuter.

3. Laneige Lip Mask

You’ve been dying to hang out since she went viral on TikTok that one time and for good reason. She’s dependable, there for you day and night, and always makes you look incredible (AKA the ultimate hype girl). Watch out though, when you’ve been around her for a while she tends to get under your skin nails (this is why refillable tubes were made!!!).

2. Rhode Peptide Lip Tint

Just like the Kardashians, you love to hate her. Or…maybe hate to love her? Either way, she’s in the rotation more often than you’d like to admit because she’s just that girl and always ahead of the trends.

1. Summer Fridays Lip Butter Balm

We love a girl who can do both, and by both I mean be practical and stylish at👏the👏same👏time. Although she tests your patience because she’s never in stores, you forgive her because she’s worth waiting for.
