KNC Beauty $24.99
While scrolling through Instagram a few weeks back, we noticed a multitude of influencers and beauty aficionados posting selfies while donning a translucent, jelly-textured pink lip mask. Of course, we were intrigued, so we did some sleuthing and found out that jewelry designer and Dior beauty ambassador Kristen Noel Crawley was the creator of this photogenic beauty essential.
After visiting Tokyo, Crawley began a love affair with lip masks—which, much like your favorite facial sheet mask, prep you for the perfect makeup application (in this case, lipstick). After encountering a dearth of all-natural options, Crawley set out to create one of her own. The resulting KNC Beauty Lip Mask is a collagen-infused offering with approachable, natural ingredients. Read: deionized water, glycerin, collagen, bitter cherry extract, hyaluronic acid, rose flower oil, and vitamin E. Expect lips to emerge conditioned, hydrated, and plumped—the mask also reduces fine lines even after you remove it. Not to mention, it makes for an irresistable photo op...
