Eye masks, face masks, feet masks – these days, there’s a mask for just about every body part, including your lips. A Korean beauty staple that has fast gone mainstream, lip masks promise to do everything from soothing and smoothing your smile to diminishing dryness, loading up on anti-aging ingredients, and giving you a plumper pout.

They also help your lipstick go on smoother (dry lips = uneven, patchy color), making them the perfect way to prime your mouth before makeup application. It’s no wonder that celebs – Kim Kardashian, Jessica Alba, and Ashley Graham included – are constantly posting selfies with a lip mask plastered on to make their love well-known.

What’s even better is they couldn’t be easier to use. Most take under 20 minutes to work and involve popping a patch or sheet onto your lips to load them up with nourishment. Be sure to exfoliate your lips with a good but gentle lip scrub first (unless your mask incorporates that) as this ensures maximum absorption of the beneficial and beautifying ingredients. So put your money – literally – where your mouth is and invest in one of these:

KNC Beauty 'All Natural Collagen Infused Lip Mask'

This cult-favorite mask is full of anti-aging and pout-plumping collagen to leave lips looking and feeling fuller and smoother. It’s also packed full of Mother Nature’s best: rose oil, cherry extract, and nourishing vitamin E. Twenty minutes and a touch of tingling (that’s just the collagen working) later, you’ll be ready to pucker up.
