I have tried every lip plumper, some better cheap or expensive. I paid $150.00 for a little injections..........wow! It does not hurt and for six months, no lip plumper!! I have spent that much alone on trying to perfect my lips with gloss...No injections .........try Sally Hansen or Plump Potion. Good Luck!

Lady Dragoness is right; the plumping action comes from capsaicin, the "hot" in peppers. Actually, continued exposure CAN result in contact dermatitis, so plain gloss or something with menthol might be better for you.

I had a gloss that had nice flavor & tingle but no plumping action

I think I read somewhere all they do is burn, tingle and not do anything but burn and tingle.

LIPFUSION is the only one that I found worked...

Naked Kiss works. Gloss and lipstick. It works so well that if I kiss my boyfriend while I'm wearing it, he gets all puffy. If I kiss him on the cheek it swells up, same goes for the lips etc. So it works but he hates me wearing it.

Some do work, the ones that I know of that work contains Cayenne pepper. you can add a little Cayenne pepper to any of your lip gloss for plumping.

It's VERY subtle. It doesn't make much of a difference and they cost around $40 so it's not worth it.

None I've tried so far.

Carmex makes your lips tingle the same way...but they've never claimed to plump up your lips....I think moisturized lips look plumper in general, and the tingling sensation is a ploy to make you think it's doing something spectacular.

There is a mint lip gloss from victorias secret called balmy nights and although its not a plumping lip gloss, it does make your lips appear bigger! and its alot cheaper!

When a lip plumper promises long-term results, it's a scam. All of them temporarily swell your lips. The manufacturers of these lip products are not allowed to use any real medical/chemical ingredients, such as restylane or collagen. Injections are the only thing that will work long-term (with monthly/yearly maintenance, of course).

I used to have lip fusion until I lost it in a cab! It didn't make my lips huge, but it did make them bigger.

Sorry you didn't like it Lindsb! I kinda like the hot-cinnamon taste :)

I've tried lip venom (DuWop) and I still think it's a crock. My lips deifinitely didn't swell .. they just burned for a few and left me with a gross cinnamon-like taste. And it was uber sticky..

I have pretty full lips as it is, but I used to buy them because I sort of liked the tingling--but I can't kiss my boyfriend if I'm wearing any. He hates them because he says they make his lips burn. What's the point of making your lips look good (supposedly) if you can't kiss?

I like DuWop Lip Venom. I think it works good, but like all glosses it comes off quickly.

does swelling and discomfort really = a sexy plump?

I've never noticied any plumping. They just make my lips chapped.

Some barely work. Its just a bunch of tingling. Gloss usually makes your lips look bigger anyways
