Lancôme L'Absolu Rouge La Base Revitalizing Lip Treatment SPF 10
This elegant balm does more than leavelips
smooth and supple--it plumps them up and gives fine lines the kiss-off! Testers reported that lips immediately looked fuller for up to 3 hours--and even longer with continued use. The workhorse ingredient is Pro-Xylane, a sugar molecule that boosts production of collagen and skin's built-in moisturizers, says David Goldberg, MD.
Use it right: Apply throughout the day, allowing it to sink in before putting on gloss or lipstick.

If you're seeing crow's feet and dark circles, you'll want to keep this eye cream in your sights. Made with peptides and dermaxyl, a nonirritating synthetic retinoid, it significantly decreased crinkles, brown spots, and undereye darkness in testers, minus any redness or peeling, reports Tina Alster, MD. Moisture magnets such as hyaluronic acid attract water to this thin, often dry skin, making it look youthfully plump. Makeup lovers sang its praises: "I got away with wearing less concealer," says one tester. "It absorbed so quickly, I didn't have to wait to apply my eye shadow," says another. Even better, makeup didn't slip and slide.
Use it right: Gently apply a pea-size drop in the morning and evening. "Aggressive rubbing can cause irritation and wrinkling," says Alster. Follow with a broad-spectrum SPF 30 in the morning to protect fresh cells.
