Beauty Mark It Results: Luscious Lip Plumpers

When it comes to plump lips, Angelina Jolie's a lucky one. While we all might not be blessed with a naturally luscious pout, there's an easy way to fake it — injection-free.

And since I'm sure you'll be caught under a mistletoe or two in the next few weeks, I asked you to voice your opinion. Which lip plumpers leave you with a kissable mouth and which ones are just a bunch of baloney? This week was tough to narrow down, and here are a few of my favorites:

  • Brandysbug reviewed Too Faced Lip Injection Lip Plumping Treatment ($18.50) — "I put it on and OUCH! My lips stung for about an hour. However, they did look very pretty — plump, shiny, and pink (probably because they were burning). After about a week, there was no pain after applying it. If I skip it for a while, though, the next time I put it on it burns again. I guess you just have to build up a resistance. Lip plumper resistance training."
  • On the other hand, Seka21 wasn't thrilled about it. She says, "My boyfriend turned to me and started freaking out because my lips were (and I joke not) two times their normal size and all blistery at the bit where the skin and lips meet. Not only that, one side was bigger than the other so I literally looked like I had bad collagen! A week later my lips are suffering — all chapped and dry as a result of this stuff."
  • Bella Donna didn't like Sally Hansen Lip Blush Plumping Balm ($9.99) — "You have: Thin, pale lips. You get: Glossy, but sticky, irritated and itchy lips. I didn't notice the slightest plumping of my lips and the pink shade doesn't suit my dark olive skin. The product, including its claim, is totally tacky. After typing out this review, I'm running back to my drugstore for my refund."

wow, I am so glad I've never cared about my lips - I don't have super thin lips, but I also don't have big, plump ones - they're kind of in the middle and I'm happy with them. I had no idea lip plumpers stung! how about just embracing what God gave you?

I generally hate lip plumpers, because I despise that stinging, burning feeling. And I like my lips the way they are! But I DO think Lip Fusion is a pretty great product.

I too hated having full lips as a child. Now I'm glad I'm naturally endowed. These lip plumpers sound like nasty business with the stinging and burning :o...

I hate lip plumpers, only because they make my lips bozo the clown red. NOT cute.

Bella, thanks for featuring my review! I was so excited - I made my hubby read it too! Reading all the comments, it sounds like there are lots of good choices out there - I'll have to try some!

I've been told that before too, nillawafer. When I was younger I hated having full lips but now I embrace it.

Hehe I was told by a plastic surgeon that I have the lips naturally that other people pay for :-)

Too Faced sounds kind of scary! I've actually has Retsylane 2x and didn't have post horror stores to say and that's the real deal!

Bolly, I weirdly like the stinging feeling too! Makes me know it's working.

Luxforsoul and Jude, Sally Hansen makes one! It's called Lip Inflation and comes in some really cute, sheer colors (sheer cherry, sheer nude or something, sheer mocha) and at drugstores they usually come in a pack with a clear one too!! I'm sure you can also buy the clear one separately, too. it's pretty great stuff, really cheap and plumps pretty nicely. Not too high on the stinging factor, either. I have a lip plumper obsession. I really want to try the Maybelline Seduction XXL (or whatever) one. Anyone tried it?

luxforsoul, i think that lip venom makes a primer that is suppose to have some plumping action sans the gloss. but i'm not sure.

Lip Venom always felt too thick and sticky for me, and didn't do much. Luxforsoul, I'd love that as well!

I've tried Lip Venom by DuWop, the Goldie plumper, and 2 Faced Lip Injection. I get the best plump from 2 Face- but admittedly, it did look a bit like swollen balloon lips, and stung like a mother. Goldie gives a tiny plump, but I love the color and the gloss. Lip Venom is so-so; not the best pout, but it's there. For fullest lips I suggest 2 Faced, just be prepared for the sting. My question is, are there any plumpers that have no gloss/color? I'd buy that in a second.

LipFusion is my obsession!

My lips are the worst in the winter. And if I don't have color on my lips my whole face appears pale. I find most of them to abuse my lips in different touturous forms like Stingy, Clumpy, Chafing and Smudgy. I like Lip Fusion and Lip Plumper by Perricone MD. I alternate between the two. They both are about $35 in price. Sometimes I use the stains by Stila underneath to kick up the color a bit. And just a friendly tip /found some codes today/ 20% off & free shipping on $30 or more on Stila- code: ECYX12 good thru Dec. 16th 25% off Perricone MD - code FF105 Friends and Family sale Nov 24-27

LipFusion is the best. It doesn't sting at all. It kinda smells like Fresca. :) It gives my lips a slightly numb feeling but it makes them fuller and smooths out the little vertical lines on them. It's the only lip gloss that I use and yeah it's $40 but it comes in a huge tube and usually lasts me close to a year.

Lip Venom works, but it's tingly. There's a Lip Venom Light also, which plumps but isn't so extreme.
