There is a collection of essentials that you can find in the bottom of every purse I own: hand sanitizer, a few hair ties, and at least five different lip products. I admit I’m a total lippie hoarder—between lipsticks, glosses, liners, and tints, I like to have options on hand at all times.

One of the latest additions to the bag lip club—and my go-to of the moment—is Only1 Clean Cosmetics Lightly Tinted Lip Volumizer. This time of year, I gravitate toward a product that gives my lips a quick moisture boost and leaves behind a natural hint of color for an effortless look, and this one fits the bill. Plus, the formula is clean, vegan, and cruelty-free.

Here are all the reasons Lightly Tinted Lip Volumizer has quickly become my most reached-for product.

It’s Suuuuper Hydrating

I have a running list of why winter is my least favorite time of year, and uncomfortably dry, cracked lips definitely tops it. Thankfully, the nourishing tint has kept me from having to deal with rough, flaky lips this season. The formula is made of a concentrated blend of lip butters and lipids that soften, smooth, and lock in moisture for a full 24 hours. Once I swipe it on in the morning, I never feel like I need to reapply throughout the day—that is, unless I want a re-up on the color…which brings me to my next point.

It Imparts the Perfect Tinge

On days when I don’t want to apply a bright matte lipstick but still want to add an extra bit of oomph to my lips, this product comes in clutch. It’s like a buildable tinted lip balm: One pass imparts a sheer, natural-looking tint (kind of like I just finished a juicy ice pop), and a few more layers provide a vibrant flush of dewy color. While there are six gorgeous hues to choose from, my favorites are Peachy Keen, a citrusy neutral for everyday wear; and Raspberry Glaze, a pretty, deep pink I like to wear out to dinner.

It Has a Subtle Plumping Effect

I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m not here for lip-plumping products that sting. Not only are they uncomfortable to wear, but I find they dry out my lips. So I love that this Lip Volumizer gives the area a fuller look using non-tingly natural peptides.

It Has a Clean Formula I Can Trust

In recent years, I’ve become more conscious about what’s in the beauty products I use. I appreciate that Only1 focuses on innovative, effective, clean ingredients. With jojoba oil, meadowfoam-seed oil, cocoa butter, and licorice-leaf extract, the Lip Volumizer’s formula reads like that of a dreamy, thirst-quenching face cream. It’s about time my lips got that kind of love.
