Welcome to our series Famous People On, in which we crowdsource the best stuff to buy by turning to the on-the-record favorites of celebrities. This week, it’s celebrities including Beyoncé, Troye Sivan, and 26 others on their favorite lip balms, including tinted balms with SPF, scented balms, and lip creams (and if you’re looking for more, here are some favorites of our skin-care enthusiasts Rio and Buzz).
“I love the Rosebud Salve in the blue can. I wear it with my lipstick. I did this trick last summer, when I was on vacation: I used it to prime my lashes before curling. It was like a natural mascara. It made the lashes hold the curl and look shiny. I use it for everything!” — Allure, March 2011
“When you’re on TV and talk a lot, the one thing you can’t have is chapped lips — especially with HD TV. Burt’s always feels great and helps your lips to look the way they should.” — The Strategist, November 2017
“I know it might not look like it because I constantly bite my lips but I’m obsessed with having moisturized lips. I would like to think that I’m like a connoisseur of sorts of lip balm and after many years of searching I’ve arrived at Vaseline Lip Therapy. It’s just like classic, standard, and lasts for a few hours.” — Vogue, October 2018
“The consistency of this lip balm is just wonderful because it’s thick enough without being too greasy. There are lip balms that get too lanolin-y or have petroleum and rub off, but this stays on the lips and keeps them moisturized and conditioned. I’ve tried so many other ones and just keep coming back to the Terry because I love the texture.” — The Strategist, March 2018
“Hurraw, which I have in my pocket right now, is a lip balm company that I’ve introduced many people to. They’ve got about 30 different flavors, but the Moon Balm in particular is great because it goes on a little thicker than a regular lip balm. If it’s really cold and dry I’ll put that on right before bed so I don’t wake up with dry, cracked lips. We just got back from snowboarding in Big Bear, and the Moon Balm was a big lifesaver.” — The Strategist, February 2019
“Nothing. Gets. It. Done. Like. Carmex. I should note here that I am NOT a Carmex ambassador. I just love this stuff. I have tried other lip balms in cool, creative containers and fruity scents. I have used oils and moisturizers and crèmes. And then I unscrew that red cap and gently squeeze that yellow tube, and out drifts that sweet menthol, and only then do I know that I am home.” — The Strategist, October 2018
“Face cream of the lips. This is L’Occitane en Provence, which, if I have to be honest with you, I got in one of those little travel size things on the plane. — Harper’s BAZAAR, April 2019
