lip plumpers

Recommended Posts

Guest meagan

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.

      Sad to say, this is running about the same as it is here in the U.S. and may not be as bad in a couple of places, but still it is pretty bad overall.  Great Britain has about the same stats on H8ers, minus the KKK of course, but the Fundamentalist and Roman Catholic influences are used as the same excuses to just plain hate from what I have heard.

      https://inews.co.uk/news/uk/third-transgender-people-victim-hate-crime/   This is very troubling, but given the very negative press and public opinions, hardly surprising.  The question is, what, if anything, will be done about it?   Carolyn Marie

      Congratulations, get ready for the ride and hold on. I started HRT about 14 months ago at 41. I have loved every minute of my journey thus far. I won't lie, it's a roller coaster. Good luck on your journey and do keep us posted.    Hugs    Shawnna

      My GP finally received the confirmation from Daventry GIC to prescribe hormones for me. I'll be on leuprorelin injections to stop production of T and estradiol valerate tablets. Shame I have to wait until after the weekend for the pharmacy to get them in, but I've waited this long so a few more days don't matter too much. Looks like I'll be on HRT in time for my 46th birthday on Wednesday.

      Here we go again Carolyn!!! You throw meaningful articles out there that usually result in really good  debates, thank you !!!   I have read two books by Jen Boylan and she is as real as they get. I also like that she's from Maine !!   The listed article really hit home while reading a quote from Kristen Beck, “What you wear, what color you are, your religion, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity has no basis on whether you are a criminal or not.”  Yes indeed. I support Eric Snowden and the courage it took for him to expose unprecedented abuses of power by the United States. His motives were clear, his intentions were more than obvious. Perhaps I still need more understanding,  but I have yet to wrap my head around the motives and intentions of the information released by Chelsea Manning...??? All I do know is that there is a sea of negativism surrounding her  and now her unqualified run for public office.   I spend hours every week at the  VA hospital attending LGBT group meetings. The horrible comments and ridicule I see on a weekly basis toward our transgender Vets walking the halls is unmatched by what I have experienced in public. A good friend straightened me out on this. He says the VA is filled with  right wingers. Yes it appears this is true. Since this whole Chelsea Manning running for Senate thing started it has gotten even worse, trust me!   I have posted on this site previously  that I merely wish Manning could be grateful for being free and go live a quiet, happy  and public free life. Jen Boylan echos this. I oh- so- admire the piss and vinegar Manning has but she is in fact a convicted felon embodied in a sea of perceived public hatred.   Like the hateful Vets at the VA, I don't think we will ever change their minds about accepting trans humans. . Not in this lifetime. Say what you will but it is my true belief that we need positive examples. Though she's not my favorite but Kristen Beck is right up there. Retired Navy Seal that served with honor and distinction. The author of this article, Professor Jennifer Boylan is another. This list goes on and on, doctors, lawyers, politicians, successful entrepreneurs . I support Chelsea manning as a trans woman and human being. I do not support her for a  Senate run, and her public exposure merely adds fuel to the fire of hatred already directed toward innocent trans people like me and you ......   In the brutal world of public opinion there is a saying; "Its not what you are but what people think you are."  I love and deeply respect our transgender community. You will never find such courageous people as represented in the transgender world. We proudly serve in  every profession, military branch, labor force and service industries. We never ask for recognition or a pat on the back, all most of us want is to be allowed to live our authentic lives free of murder, rape and ridicule.  Is Manning helping that cause?? What is your opinion??   Sincerely,   Tess
