Collagen injections don't have to be the only way for a girl to get fuller lips. If you don't want to have to go through the hassle of an expensive -and potentially very painful- cosmetic procedure, you can buy your fuller lips right over the counter. That's right. Get plumped with to die for lips without the pain and have it in a simple swipe!
In a nutshell, plumpers are lip-gunk - cosmetic products people apply to their lips just like lipstick, lip gloss and lip balm. The difference however between lip plumpers and all of these other kinds of lip product is that applying a lip plumper can actually make your lips fuller, not just make them look fuller. Now there's a definitive word: MAKE your lips fuller. Sigh...the magic of cosmetics. The blessing of modern invention. Anybody whose vanity lies on their lips but is scared to death of syringes or is broke in cash, can now sleep in peace knowing that there is a simple yet effective solution to their beauty dream. Just like the name suggests, lip plumpers actually make your lips well... plumper.
They're great for that just-kissed, pouty effect. That kind of look can drive the boys and girls if you wish so, absolutely wild! Katie Perry hasn't said it any better when she sang "I Kissed A Girl".
There's a reason why so many girls try to look like Angelina Jolie nowadays. Those full lips, coupled with that killer bod, have helped catapult her to the Hollywood A-List. If I'd have to say so, her lips got famous before she did. Sort of like the actress with the awesome lips. And they got her Brad Pitt too, which is a great plus! Of course, for some people, Jolie-grade lips might not be possible without cosmetic surgery, but lip plumpers can give you the chance for the same kind of alluring pout. Then you can feel like Angelina Jolie every single day!
In most cases, lip plumpers make your kisser more kissable with ingredients that "irritate" the skin on your lips. No worries though! This isn't as bad as it sounds. This is so because the skin on our lips is actually much more delicate than the skin on the rest of our face. This is a wake up call too. The way we care about the delicate skin around our eyes should also be extended to our lips.
What makes lip plumpers work? You might ask. They usually contain ingredients like camphor and menthol, and aside from giving your lips that fun, tingly feeling, they also make blood rush to your lips, causing them to swell and making them fuller and smoother. Ooh tempting! Lip plumpers can also make your lips feel softer giving your lips a nice nutrient boost that can help prevent peeling and chapping.
Most of the time, plumpers can be applied the same way people apply lip gloss or lip balm - using a wand applicator with a fun, fuzzy tip; with your fingers, directly form the tube, or with a lipstick brush. This kind of cosmetic product can come in a clear gloss, tinted, or even opaque, giving your already fuller lips a punch of color to match the rest of your makeup. Some of the sheerer kinds of lip plumpers can be applied right before you apply your lipstick. There are a lot of different kinds of lip plumpers available commercially, and they can range in price from five dollars to one hundred dollars. It's up to you how far you're willing to splurge. They're available in in department stores, most drug stores, and online.
Just a dose of reality though. Not all lip plumpers work. Lip plumpers' active ingredients aren't always that effective on some people. Meanwhile, those with especially sensitive skin might actually get itchy or cracked lips, and some products might not react with some individuals' unique body chemistry. As with other beauty products, what works for some may not be true to others. So, if you want to make sure that you have the right kind of lip plumper especially for you, it'll be a good idea to test it before you pucker up.
