I liked the Vaseline tinted ones but found them too subtle. Any recommendations on stronger coloured balms...? Thanks x

Burt's Bees every time! I have one in the pocket of every coat I own; they do give a hint of colour, but not so much that you need a mirror to apply. They are also really effective lipbalms.

I have a Blistex one and the colour is great on me. It's this one

Korres and Burt's Bees.

Can you get NYC? Their tinted lip balms have quite strong colour. And smell like apple!

Maybelline Baby Lips has a new apple one that is a perfect red.

Lush do a nice one.

Burts Bees

I use Cherry Chapstick, it's a nice pale (but noticeable) red.

I love the Benebalms

I think Benebalm from benefit is amazing, very strong colour and really moisturising.

Dior addict lip glow

Korres - gorgeous, I have repeat purchased numerous times which is pretty much unheard of for me.

Nuxe Reve de Miel, but have not seen the coloured ones in the UK.

I love Dior lip glow if you don't mind spending the money.

I also use Burts Bees.

Believe it or not, Rimmel colourblush balm - its not just lovely and soft but intensely pigmented as well so you get a good kick of colour. Like a chubby stick but more balm-y. Miles better than the pricy ones.

By so expensive that I have not managed to convince myself that I need ut yet. But it is beautiful.

Carmex moisture plus- it's my new favourite thing. Comes in 3 shades. Nice n cheap too and last time I bought it there was a 2 for 1 offer in Supeedrug.

JumpandScore Sat 14-Nov-15 20:35:34

I like the Carmex ones too, although plum was my favourite and they don't do that anymore sad

I feel your pain, I hate things being discontinued. Have you tried ebay?
Here you go!

Nivea do some nice flavoured, tinted, shimmery lip balms, (the fruity shine range.) Cherry is the darkest, but strawberry is a nice light red. smile
