In the past few years I've transitioned into lipstick - more specifically buttery mattes (this is one of my favorites and only $5.99!!) It's important to find one that won't exacerbate dry lips - they should be buttery and smooth when applied. And don't be scared of lipstick - just blot ( I always do!)
My absolute favorite right now is from Beauty Counter - they are incredibly silky smooth and moisturizing (not to mention chemical free)! I can't get enough of the Currant shade.
