The prettiest lip plumper on the market—maximum shine and minimum stickiness—GlamGlow Plumprageous Gloss Lip Treatment ($9) is formulated with potent botanicals that give thin lips a temporary volume boost while also hydrating them. 


From natural-looking nudes to fiery reds, Buxom Plumpline Lip Liner ($17) sets the stage for a perfect pout. Use it to define your lips or wear it on its own (it has a built-in brush for blending)—either way, you get bonus plumping action. 


Why wear a sticky, tacky lip gloss when you can wear one that feels smooth as butter? NYX Professional Makeup Butter Gloss ($5) not only comes in 34 shades to match every look, but also gives great color payoff, and it’s a total bargain!


For a parched pout in need of mega moisture, Fresh Sugar Cream Lip Treatment ($24) delivers all the goods with its whipped, creamy texture and subtle hint of color that gives that “your lips but better” look. 


Matte lipsticks often get a bad rap for leaving lips desert-dry, but Le Métier de Beauté Moisture Matte Lipstick ($32) lets you sport the highly pigmented, shine-free look with added moisture for the best of both worlds. 


If you’re looking for bold, high-impact color to make your lips the center of attention, Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick ($26) is your best bet. From Cotton Candy to Cayenne, each of the creamy, nondrying shades makes a lasting impression.
