Flaky lips are something that nearly everyone will inevitably deal with, and there are a lot of ways to treat them, but the best lip masks can treat and heal your lips faster with longer-lasting results. Some lip masks are even shaped like lips and are typically boasting that they are collagen lip masks for better results.
Besides lip balms and lip scrubs, lip masks should be considered as vital lip care products if you want to get juicy, kissable lips that are well cared for. Take a look at our picks for the 13 best lip masks and lip gels available on the market. Picking any of these lip masks, you are sure to have tangible results on your pout.
1. Clinique Pep-Start Pout Restoring Night Mask
Clinique’s overnight treatment lip mask imparts a ton of moisture while nourishing lips as you sleep. When you wake up, your lips will feel soft and moisturized. The results are ideal and the process painless – it works while you sleep so no worries about keeping it on, watching a timer and trying not to talk (no, snoring won’t mess with the effectiveness either!). Pick one up from Nordstrom.
2. Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask
Bite Beauty’s brilliant product is a tinted lip mask that you apply when you go to bed and wear throughout the next day. The tint is perfect, never overpowering, and the lip mask imbues lips with ingredients designed to smooth and soothe the lips throughout the day. Thanks to the jojoba oil and agave nectar, the nourishing formula feels rich without a heavy, unpleasant texture. Pick your favorite shade at Sephora.
3. Sara Happ Sweet Clay Lip Mask
This lip mask spreads on like softened butter in a thick mask designed to thoroughly soothe and hydrate your lips. Not only will your lips feel softer and more hydrated, but also the inclusion of the Himalayan ingredient swertiamarin works to reduce wrinkles for a smoother pout. This clay lip mask is gentle but effective enough to be used more often and can show a difference whether you let it sit for a few minutes or twenty. Order yours at Nordstrom!
4. Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask
Laneige’s lip sleeping mask soothes and moisturizes dry lips and helps remove fine lines. The mask is a leave-on lip mask that fortunately goes on rather light and leaves your lips feeling smooth and soft in the morning. Hyaluronic acid is one of the active ingredients in this mask along with several berry extracts that give it a good taste and a heavenly smell. You can get yours at Sephora.
5. 111Skin Meso Infusion Lip Mask & Plumping Duo
Though the price may make your pout a bit, the effects of this lip mask are undeniable and nothing to sneer at. Like all the best lip masks, it is carefully formulated but uses mesotherapy – a treatment offered post procedure at Dr. Yannis’ Harley Street Clinic. The formula and the use of the plumper that is included create the silky soft pout that you really want. Order yours from Nordstrom!
6. Nooni Applebutter Lip Mask
This lip mask can be used during the day or overnight. If you prefer, you can wear it during the day as a richer lip balm or at night to alleviate the stress your lips endure throughout the day. The natural benefits (AHAs) found in apple water exfoliate lips, while mint extract refreshes them. Get yours at Amazon!
7. Kiehl’s Since 1851 Buttermask Lip Smoothing Treatment
Kiehl’s lip mask treats lips with a mixture of coconut oil and mango butter that replaces lost moisture overnight to create a smoother, softer, visibly healthier looking set of lips in the morning. As an overnight mask, it is expectedly rich and thick but still feels luxurious. You can get yours at Nordstrom.
8. Mamonde Lip Sleeping Mask
The Mamonde lip sleeping mask is known to lock in moisture with muru muru and shea butters and impart antioxidants with plum blossom extract. The results are radiant, extravagantly soft, moisturized and supple lips. The formula is vegan and excellent for all skin types. This lip mask is only available online at Ulta Beauty.

The mask only has to sit for 15 minutes before removal and creates a smooth, soft and significantly more moisturized base for your lipstick. Pick up yours at Bloomingdale’s!
12. KNC Beauty 5 Pack Lip Mask
KNC is the brand of lip masks that got everyone talking – they are shaped like an oversized pink pout and were designed to work as a smoothing lip primer prior to applying your favorite lipstick. They are especially effective for those of us who love a good matte lip makeup, which can be drying with excessive use. These lip masks include a blend of rose flower oil, vitamin E and cherry extract to help your lips be primed, pumped and perfect without any downtime or discomfort. Get yours at Revolve!
13. SUGU Korean Hydrating Gel Lip Masks
As with most of the fun gel lip masks, these products are shaped like a mouth and are designed to cling to the lips and intensely hydrate them even after the mask has been removed.
