If you want to give your lips a boost without resorting to injectables then lip plumping products could well be your answer.

'Lip gloss is having a come back', says Bobbi Brown artist, Amalie Russell. 'Plump healthy lips are always pretty to look at and lipgloss gives a youthful freshness. Lipgloss this year should be nourishing and oil-based, this helps the skin’s moisture barriers and gives a non tacky feel on the lips (so it won’t get stuck in your hair!). Also glosses are much easier to apply and full proof for reapplication.'

But, with so many lip plumping balms and glosses on the market claiming to transform your pout, it's tricky to know which will actually work. So, to save you the trouble of sore lips from testing every product, team ELLE have gone and done the hard work for you.
