OK, so it's technically 5 since the Crème Lipstick by Kylie Cosmetics isn’t necessarily a plumper, but it sure does inspire a poutier pout. It’s known officially (just ask the Internet) as the Kylie Effect—women everywhere flocking to beauty stores in search of fuller lips just like Kylie Jenner’s. We’ve rounded up a few lip-plumping glosses that will help you pucker up just by putting on your makeup:
Pix Beauty’s LiftLip Max—filled with hydrating peptides, healing aloe, moisturizing jojoba and soothing chamomile;
GlamGlow’s high-shine Plumprageous Gloss Treatment—infused with botanicals;
Josie Maran’s Argan Lip Sting Plumping Butter—with 100% Pure Argan Oil, manuka honey and moringa butter to the rescue;
Too Faced’s Lip Injection Extreme—which prides itself on being cruelty-free and vegan, and looks to blood vessel-dilating technology for its formula’s inspiration;
Dior’s Addict Lip Maximizer—a collagen-boosting moisturizer with hyaluronic and marine-based fillers.
But we were curious about something a bit more long-lasting, so we popped into Ideal Image to learn about lip injections. Non-evasive treatments like the FDA-approved Restylane and Juvéderm can help restore your body’s levels of hyaluronic acid, which is naturally produced by our bodies and decreases as we age. This fills in wrinkles and adds fullness to your kisser, and that’s not just lip service.
