8 Lip Masks for a Perfect Pout
Favorite lip treatments to try
It’s easy to heal and hydrate lips in fall and winter with a powerful lip mask. ChapStick is always a go-to, but lip masks take it to the next level for a perfect pout.
So, if your regular lip balm isn’t doing the trick, try one of our favorite lip treatments that are worth adding to your beauty routine.
Makeup artist Lori Depp, who also happens to be the ex-wife of actor Johnn Depp, said that this is one of her favorite lip masks. “Lady Gaga and Jessica Alba have been known to us this single-use patch. It has a nice blueberry scent. The packaging is a little less upscale looking, but don’t let that deter you. It's earned pro status. The collagen lip mask will simultaneously hydrate and plump.”
Formulated with ancient healing ingredients such as organic mauka honey and myrrh extract, as well as moisture-packed lanolin, this treatment can clear up extreme lip damage in as little as a day or two. Apply about a pea size portion of the potent balm before bed. Repeat throughout the day and see the magic happen, Depp said.
This is a single use treatment that takes 10 to 15 minutes. It’s formulated with cherry extract that hydrates, removes dead skin cells and plumps your lips as well, Depp said.
Whether your lips drastically change in cold weather, you are a chronic lip licker or your favorite lipstick leaves your lips dry and parched at the end of the day, Skinfix’s new Lip Repair Balm has you covered. This lightweight yet deeply hydrating formula smoothes, softens and banishes dry lips on contact. Lip Repair Balm is flavor and fragrance-free, and glides on lips to offer immediate comforting relief. Natural coconut and jojoba oils and botanicals instantly soothe, soften and protect extremely dry lips.
Redefine your lip contour by plumping fine lines and enhancing fullness on and around the lips. Papaya enzymes gently dissolve dry, chapped skin without rubbing or harsh abrasives. This unique blend allows the low-weight hyaluronic acid to provide deep, intense hydration, while the high-weight hyaluronic acid sits on the skin’s surface to provide instant smoothing, hydration, and plumping.
This lip mask will moisture for a full 24 hours and can increase the moisture in the lip by as much as 17.5%. for 24 hrs. It's powerful and simple.
Help repair dry lips in five nights with this intensive two-step routine. First, use the deluxe mini Whipped Cherry Scrub Stick to gently buff away impurities. Castor oil beads help leave lips soft and supple, while fruit extracts help brighten and restore lips. Next, smooth on a nightly treatment: the coveted deluxe mini Agave Lip Mask is a leave-on, nighttime lip mask made with agave and Madagascar vanilla to help repair parched, chapped lips.
This brand new product is an overnight mask that has produced remarkable results in users. The soft berry scent isn't overwhelming, and you'll wake up to significantly softer lips.
Tips for use
Grace Gutierrez, esthetician and founder of True Grace Skin Care, said her favorite tip is to prep lips before using a mask with a Sonicare toothbrush to gently exfoliate. “It is a great exfoliation plus a stimulating massage. It gives you a natural plumpness and rosy color, like a mini-lip injection filler. I like it that this brush vibrates instead of rotates. The brushes that rotate are too abrasive,” she advised.
And the aforementioned Lori Depp has painted many of Hollywood’s most beautiful faces including Jessia Alba, Ryan Reynolds and Christina Applegate. She said, “I’m partial to lip masks that don’t require using them while sleeping. I’m a ‘face sleeper,’ so whatever I put on is going to end up on my pillow before it has a chance to work. Of course no one says you can’t wear it during the day as long as you’re not worried about being seen while it’s slathered all over your lips.”
Whatever you choose, a lip mask is a fast fix for sure-fire luscious lips.
