it's cool to be plump
no matter what you slather on your lips, you won't be angelina jolie.
however, having full, pouty lips never hurt anybody, either.
i've tried several. some people have issues with the way plumpers make your lips feel. these products cause your lips to swell, so i think it's strange to think that the experience would feel great. some are just a tingle, and some produce more of a burning sensation. if you're willing to deal with a bit of initial discomfort, you can have a rather plump payoff.
DuWop Lip Venom is a good one, because it not only plumps your lips, it's a long-lasting effect. i have the clear one, but i'll probably end up getting one of the ones with shimmer. it takes a minute or two to warm up, but when it's in full throttle, you KNOW your lips are pouting.
Urban Decay's Big Fatty Lip Plumper revs up quicker, but it's not as long lasting. i find myself reapplying more often. however, Big Fatty has some really pretty gold shimmer to it that compliments a lot of glosses.
Patricia Wexler's No Injection Lip Plumper is pretty effective, but i'm not even sure if it's in circulation anymore. it used to be at bath and body works.
it's criminal that i haven't tried Fusion Beauty's Lipfusion XL. i'll be honest...i'm scared to death that i'll love it, and i won't be able to settle for anything else, except it's FIFTY DOLLARS. i heard a rumor that they are bringing the line into Dillard's, which means i'll have to cave in at some point.
