Beauty Mark It! Lip Plumpers

Angelina Jolie is lucky enough to have naturally full lips, but the rest of us can look as luscious with lip plumpers. I've been using DuWop Lip Venom ($17) since it launched, but I'd love to know what all of you are using these days. After all, perhaps it can help us attract the attention of Brad Pitt lookalikes, right?

So for this week's Beauty Mark It challenge, share your favorite plumpers by Beauty Marking them and tagging your choices with the phrase "lip plumper." I'll feature the readers' favorites on BellaSugar next Tuesday, September 5.

I'm so mad at myself! I had too faced lip injection AND lip venom, and then I went travelling and lost them!! And I never got to try them!! I kinda forgot about it until a month ago, and haven't gotten a chance to buy some more. Grrrr

Its not incredibly noticeable! I bought some years ago, liked it, but I liked the sting.It does smooth out your lip surface though.I like to put it on before kissing my boyfriend- makes my kiss last a lil bit longer as it stays on his lips.Dirty lil trick...Cant believe I am saying this, I risk sounding like a perv.But if you add a lil to your nipples, it makes them way more sensitive and stay hard longer.Jeez-We are all women here, arent we?

Ooh, I've been wondering about the Sally Hansen one, I'll have to watch for the sale. I'm a cheap/ poor girl, but I did splurge on lip venom a while back. i actually like the sting, but I don't use it that much cause I need more color. i do have one from Bath and body works that's from Patrica Wexler and it's great as a primer under lipstick or gloss. I also have two from, gasp, wet n' wild. That actually remind me alot of Lip venom, but they're colored glosses. Picked the first one up out of a bargain bin and liked it so much just bought a new color, and it's going fast. For $3.99 reg price, it can't be beat.

I guess there are no drugstore fan's of Sally Hansen's Lip Plumper. You can usually find a double pack for less than $5 and even if it doesn't plump as well as others, the shinyness and non-stickiness makes it worthwhile for a gloss.

I used Lip Venom first, but then I tried Too Faced Lip Injection and it worked quite a bit better. It does burn, ladies, but I don't think it makes your lips swell to the point where it looks like you've got a busted lip. At lease for me they haven't, I just get a smoother, slightly fuller lip with a natural redness that makes me look like I've been kissing...

Too Faced Lip Injection burned so bad I almost cried! I like Lip Venom though, less severe.

I am addicted to Lip Fusion. I have almost every color in small and at least two large versions of the classic formula. I like Lip Venom for the extra bite on my lips but I don't think it plumbs my lips as well.

I swear by Lip Fusion, that stuff is awesome! I love them so much that I have 3 different colors. A few of my friends tried it and they became addicted to it.

I didn't like Lip Venom. It stung to much and I lost the little bottle in my room in like a week...I still can't find it.

I really want to try Lip Venom. I've tried Too Faced Lip Injection and it's awesome, except for the smell. I absolutely can't stand that "red-bull energy drink" smell. It made me sick, so I had to toss it. :( oh well....

I've heard that the second version of Lip Venom, Lip Venom 2nd Sin, is actually better cause it doesn't have that stingy-ness as the first one has.

Fake plump lips isn't necessarily going to make someone look better, since it's altering your appearance that might not fit with your natural face shape. I don't want to look like I got punched in the mouth, eek.

i don't need them cuz i have naturally big lips but i don't like the idea of them anyway. i don't think it's a good idea to use makeup that hurts.

I don't like lip venom. It isn't too stingy but it tastes terrible, is tacky, and these lip plumpers just mildly irritate your lips to make them plump and have minimal effect.

I bought Lip Venom and went right back and exchanged it for Lip Fushion. It works so much better and there's no sting!

I love lip venom! It does have a slight sting however I love that. I just got a sample of Too Faced Lip Injection that I'm going to try.

You've never seen pictures of younger Angelina? They're totally natural. side note, lip plumpers are also great for generally lip smoothing. My lips don't need to be plumped up but they do ahve little line in them that really smooth out when I use Lip Venom or any of the other ones
