Who doesn’t dream of having a plump and pillowy pout? Unfortunately, as we get older, lips begin to thin and lose their natural volume due to a depletion of collagen. While there are always medical procedures like lip injections, these treatments are often expensive and require a bit of downtime. Thankfully, there are lip plumpers that will give you a full, luscious pout without stinging, burning, tingling or needles! Ahead, here are our 15 tried-and-true picks that will offer volume, shine and hydration.
Made with an ultra-rich shade as well as creamy comfort and transfer-resistant properties, it’s no wonder we’re falling hard with this luxurious lipstick.
Prefer something more lightweight? This unique gel formula turns into a tinted oil as soon as it touches your lips, leaving a non-sticky feeling and natural-looking lips all day.
Its creamy, whipped formula will put an end to cracked lips while the intense pigment will make heads turn wherever you go.
Armed with skin-strengthening peptides, botanical oils and butters, this lip treatment targets dry lips and leaves them looking and feeling smooth. The citrusy scent is a bonus!
Wallet-friendly price tag aside, this lip oil is packed with a myriad of nourishing oils including grapeseed, jojoba, castor and more to ensure your lips look plump.
Not only does it comfort chapped lips, this multi-tasking glossy balm also gives a high shine and an overall fuller looking lips.
Offering full pigment, precision shaping as well as high payoff, this long-lasting lip liner is your key to a fuller-looking pout.
Alongside effective but gentle collagen that plumps lips, this sweet-smelling formula (which comes in eight shades) is also spiked with hydrating hyaluronic and marine-based fillers. The best part? According to in-house studies, it is said to leave you with softer lips all day long after four weeks of continued use.
If you’re trying to jump on the lip plumper bandwagon without breaking the bank, this pick from Milani comes in at a very reasonable $11.70, but its hyaluronic acid-based formula is just as nourishing as its pricier counterparts. In addition to hyaluronic acid, this plumper is loaded with shiny polymers and skin-loving oils. Plus, there are also 16 ultra-flattering shades to choose from.
This Sephora Outrageous Plump Lip Gloss has been said to be a dupe for the Dior Addict Lip Maximiser Plumping Gloss. Enriched with sunflower seed oil, ginger root oil and peppermint oil, this gloss instantly blurs micro-fine lines and plumps lips with zero irritation.
Thanks to its hero ingredient — peptides — this lip gloss stimulates collagen production to give you that bee-stung look à la Kylie Jenner. Also fortified with hydrating jojoba oil and aloe extract, it comes in three universally flattering shades so you won’t need to wear other lip products with it.
Instead of instant plumping results, this treatment focuses on giving you fuller lips overtime courtesy of botanical extracts that boost hydration and enhance skin’s lipid barrier function so it is better able to hold on to moisture.
On the hunt for good lip plumping technology? Visit a dermatologist. Alternatively, if you want something less invasive, try this needle-free plumping emulsion from Dr Dennis Gross. Made with hyaluronic acid, this lightweight formula is a godsend for plumping and moisturising even the driest of lips.
For a luxurious splurge that delivers what it promises, look no further than the La Mer Lip Volumiser. Old school plumpers relied on irritants like capsicum to temporarily plump lips (while causing much discomfort!), but this luxe treatment uses a less jarring blend of antioxidant-rich lime tea concentrate, marine ingredients and nutrient-rich minerals to reduce the appearance of fine lines and create the illusion of fuller, thicker lips.
