Shoppers give this lip-plumping gloss a chef's kiss: 'Works instantly, no stinging'

Skip the expensive fillers in your quest for a fuller, younger-looking pout.

You probably have a favorite anti-aging cream to prevent fine lines and wrinkles on your face and neck — but what about your lips? As we age, our lips can lose volume, look thinner and even show more wrinkles. That's why it's important to wear SPF to prevent sun damage and moisturize with a good lip balm. Aside from professional treatments, you can also try a lip-plumping gloss like Grande Cosmetics GrandeLIPS Plumper to make your pout a little more, well, pouty.

The plumping gloss comes in six shades, but clear is the most popular.

The gloss is a Sephora top-seller and Amazon favorite. More than 1,500 Amazon shoppers give it a five-star rating, with many saying the shiny gloss made their lips look fuller and younger almost immediately.

What's the secret sauce? It contains hyaluronic acid and vitamin B3 to hydrate and condition lips, which makes them look fuller and plumper pretty quickly, reviewers say. Additionally, this lip gloss contains something called Volulip, a peptide/plant extract hybrid designed to give your lips visible volume (hence the clever name).

"The results were nothing short of impressive," said one shopper, adding that within minutes of applying, their "lips visibly plumped up, leaving them looking fuller and incredibly luscious. What I loved most was the clear finish — no overly dramatic, artificial look, just a beautifully enhanced version of my own lips. The formula was hydrating, so my lips felt soft and smooth throughout the day."

"Love this product. My sister asked if I got my lips done," shared another reviewer.

Some lip-plumping products can sting, but this one claims "no stings attached" (heh). I scoured reviews to confirm whether that's true, and most people agree — there's no terrible burning or stinging. One person even said they love how it feels when you first put it on, describing it as "cooling and moisturizing."

"My favorite lip plumper! Works instantly and no stinging, just a slight tingle," said another shopper. "It's also nonsticky and super hydrating."

You can apply GrandeLips Plumper throughout the day, or twice a day for best results, according to the instructions. While it can give your pout a fuller look, for long-term hydration, you have to be consistent. You can also pair the clear gloss with your favorite moisturizing lipstick.

Try Spicy Mauve, a subtle pink that you can wear on its own for a pop of color day or night.
