6 Lip Toppers for a Makeup Look That’s Anything but BoringFebruary 09, 2018
If you’re lipstick obsessed, you might have one signature lippie you love more than all the others in your collection of 20-plus. Sure, you might alternate between all of them now and then, but this is the one you never lose in the bottom of your day bag or let drown in your makeup vanity. As much as you love it, though, there’s a way you can spruce it up to make it even more customized. Enter: lip toppers to enhance your fave lip color.
Lip toppers are meant to be worn over your lipstick to transform the look into something different. One of our favorite things about these lippies is that each one is different — to help you achieve a different lip look ranging from an iridescent, glossy hue from L'Oréal Paris to a cult-favorite shimmering metallic top coat from Jouer Cosmetics. And there’s no rule that states you need to wear it over lipstick. In fact, you can pull them off with bare lips or even your favorite tinted lip balm.
Ahead, discover six of our favorite lip toppers, ordered from lowest price to highest.
