The key to healthy lips? A clean canvas right from the start. Lip exfoliation gets rid of surface-level impurities that prevent lip products from actually doing their job. Before you apply any of your lip balms, oils or makeup, relieve flakiness and dryness with the COSRX Full Fit Honey Sugar Lip Scrub. This scrub uses sugar crystals to buff away dead skin cells, while Honey and Cacao extract help to keep lips soft and hydrated. If you’re wearing lipstick, prepped lips will make it easier to apply color flawlessly, and elongate its wear.
KLAVUU - Nourishing Care Lip Sleeping Pack

Like a sleeping mask you slather on your complexion at the end of your night routine, the KLAVUU Nourishing Care Lip Sleeping Pack is made to nourish and protect lips overnight. Plant-based oils create a High Fix Polymer that forms a barrier over the lips, in order to prevent moisture loss and to keep the lips supple. In as little as 5 minutes of application, your lips will feel smooth and hydrated. Take your pick from 3 delectable flavors: Vanilla, Berry, and Coconut.
Unleashia - Non-Sticky Dazzle Tint

You’ll find yourself swiping on the Unleashia Non-Sticky Dazzle Tint constantly, not for its lack of pigmentation, but rather how silky and non-sticky it feels no matter how much you apply. This dewy tint formula is laden with Olive, Rosehip, Avocado and Jojoba oils to nourish the lips, infused with a sleek shimmer that gives the lips a plumped appearance. Our fan-fave shade is N11 Gentle Tiger, a bodacious ruby grapefruit shade guaranteed to turn heads.
