Bold lip colors are hot, but they show every imperfection on your mouth. Don’t even think about using those bold lip colors before using one of these lip exfoliates.
Lip exfoliators not only help your lips look and feel their best without makeup, but they help your lipstick glide on better for a smooth finish, and stay in place much longer. These are our top picks for lip exfoliators that work.
Bliss Fabulips sugar lip scrub by Sephora (Sephora, $18) uses grains of sugar and almond shells to gently exfoliate your lips while moisturizing them. This is a less harsh exfoliator than some, and leaves your mouth feeling soft and hydrated.
The Lip Scrub
The best thing about The Lip Scrub Green Apple Lip Exfoliator by Sarah Happ (Nordstrom, $24) is the scent and taste of fresh green apples. Oh, and it works too! Simply rub it on your lips, and then wipe away for perfectly smooth, kissable lips.

Sugar and Butter Lip Exfoliator/Plumper
The Sugar and Butter Lip Exfoliator/Plumper by Jane Iredale (janeiredale.com, $25) not only uses organic brown sugar to gently buff your lips to perfection, but the plumper on the other side uses shea butter and peptides to give that full look you’ve always wanted.
