Beauty trends come and go, but a plumped pout will always be in. In fact, it was only a couple of months ago that TikTokers were adding lash glue to their upper lips. (Please don’t try this at home). There's also the prevalence of procedures like lip flips or lip fillers that can get the job done. However, cosmetic injections can be costly, time-consuming and nerve-wracking for some—especially if you’ve never tried a treatment like it before. Luckily, there are other ways to boost the volume of your natural pout.
Enter: Lip plumping glosses. Yup, some lip glosses have active ingredients like peppermint extract that temporarily plump your lips without breaking the bank or requiring any needles. Just a swipe of the right gloss can provide the softer, fuller pout you’re looking for. Add the moisturizing ingredients that are commonly found in these glosses (like hyaluronic acid, collagen, shea butter and jojoba oil) and you get the bonus benefit of smoother lips, too.
