10+ of the Best Lip Balms & Lip Glosses For a Supple Pout

Ten of the Best Lip Balms & Lip Glosses Ever

Listen, I don’t know about you, but I am pretty much over hard and drying lipsticks. In fact, these days, I am all about finding the best lip glosses for plump lips.  Soft, youthful, and glowing lips are so 2020, and for once I am here for this trend. Give me all the lip balms and lip glosses, please!

Lip balms are traditionally applied to get relief from dry or chapped lips, angular cheilitis, stomatitis, or cold sores, however, these days more and more women are choosing them to go for a more natural pout, especially during the warmer months. 

Even if you want to stick with lipsticks, I highly recommend wearing a lip mask underneath your lipstick to keep your lips youthful and refreshed. Need options? Look no further.
