Five Favorites: Lip Plumpers


I’ve never been a big fan of needles.  Up until a few years ago, I was still asking for numbing spray at the doctors if I had to get a shot.  So *needless* to say, the idea of paying someone to inject any part of my face is out of the question; I draw the line at using my dermaroller, which has needles so small it barely feels like anything.

Lip injections have become so mainstream (we have Kylie Jenner to blame) that I decided to round up my favorite non-invasive alternatives for a plumper pout!

I first read about DuWop Lip Venom in one of the Gossip Girl books, and was so excited to find out it was a real product, actually touted as the “original” noninvasive lip plumper.  I felt so cool using this cinnamon-infused gloss in high school.  Some products just carry fond memories.  The fact that it actually works makes it even better.

I showed Soap And Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Pillow Plump XXL Lip Gloss to everyone when I discovered it, and everyone who tried mine loved it so much that I ended up having to buy another tube!  It only comes in a few variations of pink, nude, and clear, but if you want a gloss that’s really going to tingle, this is the one for you.

None of these products will give you permanent or even semi-permanent results; they’re more in the vein of instant gratification.  If you’re looking for something that will last a little longer, pick up a dermaroller and some hyaluronic acid serum.  Otherwise, have fun getting glossy!
