Lip Plumpers 101: How to Have Plumper, Younger Looking Lips

Everyone wants bigger, more pouty lips. The truth is that the most natural, most economical, and least invasive way to get fuller looking lips is through the use of quality lip plumpers.

Fuller lips are currently all the rage for celebrities and housewives alike. More and more individuals take a needle to this vital sensory organ in order to get the luscious lips they desire. The year 2000 saw an increase in lip injections, fillers, and implants (by over 35 percent!) and continues to rise to this day..2 A lot of these people end up regretting having placed foreign objects in their bodies due to complications and negative side-effects that arise from the chemicals and/or procedures.

The natural solution to going under the knife or the needle are lip plumpers. Lips are not protected by extra layers of skin and have poor water retention. This means they are easily affected by certain damaging elements. Between age and the environment, our lips lose their softness and poutiness over time.

In the 1940s, Marilyn Monroe changed the concept of beauty and overall lip game for all women when she debuted her new look of platinum blond hair and red over-lined lips. Since then, the emphasis on lips has steadily increased with the influence of modern celebrities (like genetically blessed Angelina Jolie, or surgically augmented Kylie Jenner).

Lip plumpers are available in several different formulas and offer just as many varying results. Lip plumpers are for those who want a more natural, more pouty lip look. It is the affordable and safe alternative that offers instant gratification.*

In addition, the right product will offer lip protection and the promotion of lip health. It will make your lips look fuller and leave them feeling softer than ever before.*

The Risks of Surgical Lip Augmentation

Lip injections are an ongoing expense and tend to become a luxury for those who want to consistently keep the fullness of their lips intact. More importantly, there is a large risk of having an allergic reaction to lip fillers. Countless reports have been made showing bad side effects.*

Many patients have reported allergic reactions to products injected into the lips as well. As you can see, there are many aspects of lip augmentation that can cause adverse effects, discomfort, pain, and even botched results.*

Serious symptoms include:

  • - Scarring*
  • - Infection*
  • - Unforeseen outcomes*

The Lip Plumping Revolution

With formula-perfecting time and technology, lip plumpers have greatly changed and are offering users more than just a tingly lip gloss with glitter. There are many lip plumpers on the market today but among them there are the good, the bad, and the ugly. That is exactly what this survey has set out to research and discover.

We came back with some vital information from the world of pouts and puckers, and there is nothing we want to do more than let you in on these amazing finds.

PROS

  • Contains sepilift to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles*
  • Softens lips*
  • No gooey mess, uses vacuum-type technology

CONS

  • Not a standalone product
  • Must travel with a suction device for maintaining lips
The Bottom Line

Smarter Shoppers enjoyed the pumping effect that the pumping device offers. The creme is used as an age-defying and moisturizing product only. More plump lips are achieved solely by using the pump. Reviewers have reported minor bruising and some discomfort due to the pump, but once comfortable, saw favorable results instantly and consistently.

PROS

  • Plumps appearance of lips without the use of chemicals*
  • Provides the look of plump lips within a few minutes*
  • Reduces appearance of wrinkles*
  • Small enough to carry around to re-plump whenever needed

CONS

  • Some discomfort and bruising reported
  • Not a nourishing or moisturizing product
The Bottom Line

This product follows the plump lip phenomenon perfectly. Candylipz is favored by those who are looking for a purely aesthetic look of bigger lips. Most users have complained of bruising and discomfort after the use of the pump. Also, the product is not accompanied by any lip creams or moisturizers. Smarter Shoppers looking for more of a lip-treatment-and-plumper-in-one, that offers a more natural look and promotion of lip health will not find those qualities in this product.

5/10

PROS

  • Moisturizes lips*
  • Contains Vitamin A
  • Contains NIACYL, commonly known as niacin, for age defying

CONS

  • No longer available in retail stores
  • Products containing niacin may dry lips
The Bottom Line

Though this product fits into our guidelines of being a quality lip plumper, it can only be purchased through Amazon.com. Reasons for it no longer being available in retail stores are currently unknown. This product seems to be a little counterproductive because although it is a product that moisturizes, it contains niacin which may cause lips to dry and crack. Our Smarter Shoppers were pleased with this product, but found better.

PROS

  • Moisturizes lips*
  • Provides plumping effect*

CONS

  • Feels sticky on the lips
  • Needs to be reapplied too often
  • Comes in one shimmery color
The Bottom Line

Dior lovers appreciate this high-end product by their favorite brand. Reviews range from loving the pink tint and a touch of shimmer in the product to having trouble pairing it with other lip cosmetics. Some Smarter Shoppers have minor issues with the consistency and feel of the product on their lips; most enjoy the tingle that the "plumping effect" offers, as well as the price per volume.
