How It Works
Lip plumping gloss is formulated to boost the volume of your lips – but, unlike fillers, which use ingredients such as hyaluronic acid injected into your tissue to ‘fill’ or plump the lip area, a ‘lip plumper’ gloss typically works via circulation-boosting ingredients, such as capsicum extract and peppermint and cinnamon bark oils, to increase the size of your pout.
It’ll Probably Tingle
One thing to note is that your lip-plumper gloss might feel a little different to your usual lip gloss or balm when you apply it. As well as those delicious soft, shiny and ready-to-slay-the-world feels you get after a fresh coat of your regular gloss, you’re also likely to experience a bit of a tingly sensation when using a lip-plumping gloss product. This is a sign the ingredients are doing their thing to give you more pillowy, look-at-me lips.
I Can’t Hear You Over The Volume Of My Lips
The circulation-boosting ingredients inside lip-plumping glosses – such as natural goodies cinnamon and capsicum – will cause blood to move to the surface of your lips, creating that ‘swollen’ effect in your pout. Yassss!
It Won’t Last Forever
Just like your fave Netflix series and those first few sips of your latte on a chilly morning, all good things reach an end. While lip-plumping glosses will boost the volume of your lips, it’s not a forever thing – most of these glosses will have an effect lasting around 30 minutes after application. Luckily, that’s definitely long enough to wow that guy at the bar before nipping off to the ladies for a little touch-up!
It’ll Also Make Them Soft + Shiny
As well as its main MO, a good lip-plumping gloss will also contain hydrating ingredients (such as rosehip butter and almond oil), in addition to leaving a nice shiny coating on that pout – all the better to turn heads with. And if you have super dry lips or are dealing with chilly winter weather? Boost the effects by applying your regular hydrating lip balm daily as well for maximum wow-factor.
