People spend a whole lot of money — not to mention go through a fair amount of regular pain — to plump up their lips. Luckily, no matter what kind of injections your favorite celebs and influencers are showcasing on Instagram, it doesn’t require regular trips to the dermatologist and the sudden inability to eat soup to rock stunning, shiny, full lips. Maybe those injections are the absolute most long-term effective at giving you a more puffy look, but if you want a night out with smoother and fuller lips, all you need is a bit of self-care and the best plumping lip glosses available.
OK, we know what you might be thinking: Aren’t plumping lip glosses banned under the Geneva Conventions for containing too many irritants? Don’t they plump your lips with harsh substances, so they’re really just swollen? Fortunately, that method of lip plumping has largely been left in the past, as a new generation of plumping lip glosses are able to add some perk to your pout through hydration and smart use of shade to blur the fine lines of your lips.
Obviously, that’s very good news, but we know that the stakes of committing to a plumping lip gloss are still pretty high. After all, not every plumping lip gloss is so moisturizing and kind on the skin — there are still plenty of more irritating plump lip glosses out there, so it’s helpful to have an expert guide. And at MASSE, you’ll get guidance from a whole community of beauty product experts! You want full lips, not lists that are full of it, right?
We’ve put together a list of some of the best plump lip glosses on the market today, based solely on the recommendations and reviews of our community members who have really used those plumping lip glosses. We don’t allow sponsored posts or paid reviews, either, so you can be sure that you’ll be getting Instagram-worthy lips without any distractions.
