Personally, I am not a huge fan of the bee-stung throbbing feeling you get from lip plumpers, but I know that more often than not, there is a price to pay for beauty. If your goal is super-sized smackers, then these glosses are a better option than collagen or restylane injections that leave your lips in a perma-pucker. Here are my top three choices for lip plumpers.
Freeze 24▪7 PlumpLips IceSticks are meant to create a sexy and full lip look. This gloss is bursting with sheer color in a formula that ensures moistness, smoothness, and shine. Through advanced technology, circulation on the lip surface is increased, and the drying, burning, and irritation associated with most lip plumpers is eliminated. Buy it here for $42.50. Available in six color choices and a clear gloss.
To see the rest,
DuWop Lip Venom was the very first lip plumper on the market, and it's still one of the best. The original formula creates a spicy, tingly feeling by using essential oils, cinnamon, avocado oil, wintergreen, jojoba, and ginger. These ingredients cause the blood to rush to the surface of the lips, flushing and swelling them slightly to enhance their natural shape and color. The result is a shiny and natural rose colored pout. Buy it here for $16.
Sugar Cosmetics Pump Em' Up Lip Gloss and Mini Glossing Set are both delicious and pretty. With an easy and fun roll-on applicator, this gloss is a no-mess addition to any look. The plumping agents contain a super-charged blend of active ingredients that increase blood flow to the lips while menthol, camphor, and other oils cool, soothe, and hydrate. You'll feel it working for about five minutes (you get the tingles) and then it stops, but the effects last up for three to six hours. Buy it here for $12.
The Pump 'Em Up Mini Plumping Gloss Set is small and perfect to throw into an evening bag. The collection comes with 12 different glosses that are both sexy and sweet to taste. Buy it here for $28.
