My lips are dry but not chapped and they are completely smooth. I've been drinking lots of water and using chapstick but nothing is working?

In brief: Too much water

Consumption of large amounts of water will NOT "hydrate" your lips.
Mouth breathing, talking, and frequent drinking may cause dry- feeling lips. Try to avoid licking your lips. Try using frequent Aquaphor or vaseline.
