To instantly pump up the volume on their puckers, stars and celebrity makeup artists look to some of the best lip plumpers and pout-boosting lipsticks as a painless, needle-free alternative to lip filler.
Many of the best lip-plumping glosses use active ingredients such as peptides, menthyl (or peppermint) and hyaluronic acid that leave the lips tingling while giving a temporary boost that lasts up to eight hours. Others (like Patrick Ta) incorporate cinnamon and ginger for adding visible volume.
Here, we have rounded up some of the best over-the-counter lip-plumping treatments loved by celebrities and makeup artists, including star formulations from Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty and Hailey Bieber’s Rhode as well as glosses coveted by Jennifer Aniston, Emma Roberts, Julianne Moore, Jennifer Lawrence, Anya Taylor-Joy, Paris Hilton and Simone Ashley.
