With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, it’s the perfect time to give your lips a little TLC. Even if you’re not a hearts-and-flowers person, months of plummeting temperatures, dry indoor air, and the resulting chapped lips probably mean you’re in the market for a solution that’s slightly more luxurious than the balm in your pocket. Enter the lip mask: a Korean product turned global beauty phenomenon that combines cheeky packaging with powerful results.
Some suggestions: A tingling peppermint-packed plumping patch is a fast way to supercharge your smile—that is, if you can handle the heat. Have a little more time for the process? Give Holika Holika’s three-step kit a try. Meanwhile, those with a sweet tooth will satisfy their cravings with TonyMoly’s honey-flavored mask, but to get the most mileage from a formula, the all-natural KNC Beauty appliqué will moisturize and guarantee a good Instagram. Just ask Emma Stone.
