Dry, chapped lips? We’ve been there — and take it from us, it’s far from fun. Dry and flaky patches make it nearly impossible to apply a smooth coat of lipstick and leave us with a makeup look that feels incomplete. Thankfully, there are tons of lippies — ranging from matte pigments to dreamy glosses — that hydrate your lips, so you never have to sacrifice color or finish ever again. We’ve narrowed down our favorite hydrating lip products, ahead. 


If You Want a Hydrating Lip Plumper … 

We’re all about getting a plump pout with a simple swipe of a good lippie. Our go-to? The IT Cosmetics Pillow Lips Solid Serum Lip Gloss. A smooth and non-sticky texture and a collagen-infused formula packed with hydrating aloe and hyaluronic acid make it a no-brainer on our list.

If You Want a Hydrating Matte Lip ...  

Whoever said matte lipstick couldn’t work on dry lips, please meet the L’Oréal Paris Les Nus Colour Riche Intense Nude Lipstick and prepare to be proven wrong. This creamy, pigmented and long-lasting product is a must-have matte lip product that suits all skin tones. The velvety texture keeps lips feeling and looking soft without touch-ups.

If You Want a Hydrating Lip Gloss …

In 2021, we’re bringing the lip gloss trend back from our middle school days. And if we’re being honest, there’s no better high-gloss, high-shine option than the Maybelline New York Lip Lifter Gloss. We can’t get enough of this hydrating lipstick formulated with hyaluronic acid. It’s perfect for a sheer tint on the regular or to plump up your lips for date night. Hi, yes, we’ll take one of each shade, please.

If You Want a Hydrating Lip Balm …

If your chapped lips are majorly struggling to retain moisture, toss the Maybelline New York Baby Lips Moisturizing Lip Balm into your pocket and apply on repeat. This ultra-nourishing pick is designed to give relief to dry, irritated lips. And, with a slight glossy finish, you’ll still feel like you have some shine.

If You Want a Hydrating Lipstick …

When it comes to lipstick, the YSL Beauty Rouge Volupté Shine Lipstick gets gold stars all around. From a luscious, creamy texture and high color payoff to a super hydrating formula and silky application, this lippie is an automatic add to cart. Essential oils give the product a smooth and flawless look that will have your lips feeling softer and smoother.
