The 17 Best Lip Plumping Products

Fake your way to fuller-looking lips with these 17 temporary plumpers.

Lip Plumper 1

If you’re not one for lip filler (or you’re between dermatologist appointments), a lip plumper can help create plush volume—even if only for an hour or two. Thanks to newer hydrating, collagen-boosting formulas, you can see instant results without that distinct burning and tingling sensation. These 17 tried-and-tested picks are the next best thing to lip injections—even better, they have zero recovery time.

This clean formula somehow magically reveals a fuller-looking pout, sans traditional “plumping” ingredients. Think of it as the lip gloss you loved as a teen, grown up.

Healthy Lips Plumping Serum with Peptides

The concentrated serum sinks into lips quickly and also acts as a nourishing primer for lip color.

Platinum Lip Plump

Lip Plumper 2

Developed by world-renowned plastic surgeon Lara Devgan, this lip-plumping serum is the next best thing to having the doctor herself take a needle to your lips. You’ll notice plumper lips right away and over time.

Plumping Lip Gels with Wild Berry Extract

Lip Plumper 3

Technically neither balm nor gloss, these pout-shaped gels are applied to your lips so a mixture of hydrating ingredients can work their plumping, rejuvenating magic. If you have 10 minutes to spare, they’re worth trying.

Hyaluronic Marine Collagen Lip Cushion

Hyaluronic acid plumps and moisturizes lips so they look fuller right away (without any noticeable tingling).

One of the best-selling lip plumpers at Sephora, Buxom’s formula leaves behind a tingly-in-a-good-way feeling that results in a perfectly swollen lip look.

Just Kissed Lip Plumper

Lip Plumper 6

Jane Iredale’s lip plumping formula is infused with sunflower oil, shea butter, and aloe vera to hydrate; lemon and tangerine essential oils to exfoliate; and spearmint, peppermint, and ginger root extract to boost circulation. Plus, the neutral flattering shades contain a hint of iridescence that increases light reflection which helps create the illusion of bigger lips.

Nutri-Filler Lips

Lip Plumper 7

This balm-to-oil is your-lips-but-better in a tube. Not only does the formula feel light and hydrating (unlike the sticky plumpers of yore) and adds a hint of pH-activated color so lips look full and naturally rosy.

GrandeLIPS Hydrating Lip Plumper

Lip Plumper 8

With 13 shades from clear to moody purple, this hyaluronic acid and collagen-infused gloss makes it easy to make plumped lips a part of your every day look.

PLUMPRAGEOUS Matte Lip Treatment

Lip Plumper 9

Matte lip lover rejoice: you don’t need high-shine to get plumped lips. Mint extract and hyaluronic acid stimulate lips and add volume while the soft matte finish keeps your look from giving you middle school flashbacks.

Volume Enhancing Lip Serum

Lip Plumper 10

Instead of instant plumping results, this serum focuses on giving you fuller lips over time courtesy of collagen boosters that smooth and volumize lips with continued use.

Diamond Lip Booster

Lip Plumper 11

Antioxidant turmeric oil and hydrating omega 3 and vitamin E team up to add plumping moisture and protection against environmental damage that can make lips appear thinner over time.

Blue Copper 5 Lip and Tuck

Lip Plumper 12

Hyaluronic acid does the heavy lifting on the plump front in this lip treatment, deeply moisturizing the lips for a subtly plumped effect. Meanwhile copper and anti-aging peptides go to work on smoothing lines and signs of aging so lips look more voluminous over time.

Lip Injection

Lip Plumper 13

The tingling, almost carbonated feel of this plumping gloss comes courtesy of capsicum—the same stuff that makes peppers hot. No need to worry about spice, though, the capsicum here is all about stimulating blood flow to your lips to plump them and add a dose of all-natural color.

Needles No More 3-D Lip Plumpfix

Lip Plumper 14

You have an AM and a PM moisturizing routine, why shouldn’t your lip plumping regimen be just as complete? This dual-sided tube contains one plumping formula for day which stimulates blood flow, than flip it over for the PM version which packs in the moisturizers so you get more volume in the long run.
