If you're looking to create the illusion of fuller looking lips, lip gloss is the answer. Not only does a lip gloss leave a glass like shine, creating dimension and giving the impression of a plumper pout, they're also packed full of hydrating and nourishing ingredients that lock in moisture to naturally enhance your lips. Far from the sticky formulas you may have had as a child, modern day lip glosses are designed to feel lightweight and comfortable, with many offering long-lasting wear for that shimmering look all day long.
