Try These: Lip Plumpers

Blame it on Kylie Jenner, but lately, fuller lips are topping many people’s beauty wish lists (the American Society of Plastic Surgeons released data last spring stating that pout procedures were up 43% since 2000). To answer the demand, savvy brands are now launching innovative—and needle-free!—DIY enhancers.

While in-office fillers typically deliver plumping hyaluronic acid via an injection, many at-home products pack teeny versions of the molecule that can be absorbed topically. Some also contain mildly irritating ingredients such as cinnamon oil or a chili pepper compound called capsaicin, that, intentionally, cause slight (and safe) swelling for a temporary effect.

From boosting serums to double-duty glosses to cute-yet-functional masks ripe for Netflix and (actual) chill, here are 12 options to suit every primping preference.
