Just curious to know if anyone here uses or has tried using a lip plumper. Not injections or a pump. Any good products, good results or length of time lips stay plump?

It would be nice to add some volume to my pout and not look like i took a punch to the face haha...

I was looking at Wexler advanced lip plumper as it had more consistant good reviews. Taking any input /cheers

I have tried a couple and so far I call BS as far as any noticable results aside from "buzzing" lips. I usually achieve far better results "sculpting" my lips with liner and lipstick/stain.

I have tried one, or rather had it tried on me. I have to say, it did work, but the results didn't last very long, so you'd have to pretty much keep it on you at all times and really stock up. I don't think it would be worth it.

I have tried one before. I guess the formula uses concentrated cinnamon to make the lips swell up some. I guess it worked to an extent but the burning feeling wasn't the best. Now I just stick to regular lipstick.

I have also tried them without much results.

However I once had one of my bees try to help me out in that department and it worked great. :Crylol:

Lol, funny Mia. After some more research and even talking with the make up girls in town. the spicy hot tingly plumpers work for very few people and for most just burn and irritate. The advice i got was to stay away from the burning glosses as i could try a dozen brands before finding one that may work for me. As per my original post, i was told to look at Wexler and that it did plump with good volume and lasted 5-6 hours. It was also mentioned that Avon makes a really good plumping lipstick, Clinique was suggested and i even came across many write ups or reviews that gave it good grades in creating volume, having no spicy tingle and about 5-6 hours of good full lips.

Maybe it is not really worth my money and time, but i do look at my paper thin lips and dream of them being a full pout. I do appreciate the replies too. thanks :)

I don't know what kind it was that I tried, but it wasn't anything like cinnamon. The only thing I felt was the swelling.

Old but fun topic!

My opinion? THEY DO NOT PERFORM AS ADVERTISED! Sorry - end of story.

Rub jalapeno or even habanaro juice on your lips maybe for the swelling you want (KIDDING! DON"T DO THAT)

On a related subject, surgical injections? my research shows they are temporary - look at Goldie Hawn in the movie Death Becomes Her - she doesn't look that way anywhere else, and certainly not today.

Using you own fat as injections? 30% effective at best, from what I read - so maybe it is best to have a bit of FFS that reduces the skin between your upper lip and the nose, plus an under the chin skin reduction. But be careful as you may never be able to eat an apple again without juice drooling down your chin. Plus people may start calling you either Chip or Dale.

LOL.....

Actually in the middle ages and before...women did use stinging bees for puffing up the lips....

The bee/wasp/hornet was held with a tweezers like device and allowed to sting the lips repeatedly....

It's still done in some places...

I know what you mean Dominique a fat lip would give me some lips, especially the upper, permanent stiff upper lip. I understand bo-tox lasts about 3 months? Any RLE out there.

Be careful with Botox.....

Botox does indeed give a MILD plumping effect , (due to relaxation of the "edge" of the muscle), when administered close to the lip, BUT side-effects such as difficulty saying the letters "p" and "b", and sipping through a straw, etc., can occur. For real lip volume improvement, fillers work very well.

Please be careful...

I think i'd rather find some young cute person to suck on my lips. Sorry but better than bee stings. Are you a beekeeper Mia? Used to keep bees and my son has a bunch of hives. Still prefer kissing though,

A friend of mine swears by City Lips. I don't know whether it works or not and am not terribly worried about finding out just right now. Maybe someday I'll worry about that but not now.

Yes my spouse and I have a few hives. We keep them mainly for the pollination they provide and usually let them keep their honey over winter.
