A Lip Plumper That Improves the Feeling of Your Skin

Today, you’d be hard pressed to find a woman who wasn’t after plump, full looking lips. We get the hype—voluminous, bee-stung lips—like those of our favorite A-listers—can make you appear younger, draw attention to your face, and eliminate the need for an exaggerated duck-face in selfies. So what’s a thin-lipped gal to do? For a boost without the bruises, reach for a lip plumping gloss. Our friends at NYX Professional Makeup sent over their Pump It Up Lip Plumper for the Skincare.com team to try—here’s what we thought.


Some lip plumpers can be super irritating for the delicate skin on the lips, leading to an uncomfortable burning sensation accompanied by flaking and dryness. But not this shimmering gloss by NYX Professional Makeup. It’s formulated with Maxi-Lip, a peptide that helps to provide a subtle, plumper-looking pout. But that’s not all. In addition to extra fullness, it can help lips look and feel smoother, too. Choose from nine different shades, ranging from sheer baby pink (Pamela) to red (Scarlett). The formula is super lightweight and glides on easy with—guess what—no pain! Sure, the results are only temporary. But we’ll take a temporarily bigger pout (thanks to lip plumping gloss) over one that’s gone under the knife or put through the wringer, any day of the week. Pucker up, ladies.
