Those pouty, sex-kitten lips on women like Angelina Jolie and Pamela Anderson are the envy of women everywhere with more …shall we say “ordinary”?… lips. Haven’t you ever wished you could do a little more than color outside the lines to plump up your lips so you could enhance your own sexy, sultry smile? The experts have come up with much more effective methods of helping thin lips look full and flirty than that old trick of applying lip-liner on the outside rim of your mouth.
There are different types of lip plumpers that can give you that bee-stung kisser. You could go for the real stinger with lip plumping collagen injections, but these can be not only painful but also expensive. Lip injections also have a tendency to leave lips looking overdone and fake. There are also some lip glosses that can achieve an almost instant swelling result. However, the effect is usually very short-lived and can sometimes have a negative outcome. Most lip glosses with the plumping effect contain some kind of irritant, such as cinnamon or menthol that can cause redness and swelling much like an allergic reaction. Unfortunately, sometimes your lips feel very irritated from these kinds of products and can develop a flaky, burning rash.
So how do you achieve those super-sexy pouty lips without enduring expensive shots or breaking out in hives? After reviewing a wide range of lip plumper products we have compiled for you a list of those that women seem to like the best.

Get the most out of your lip plumper by practicing these special tricks:
- Never apply lip plumper to cracked or broken skin.
- Stay inside the lines! Apply lip plumper only on your lips and don’t get any on the skin around your mouth.
- A tiny dab of highlighter (you can use under-eye brightener) placed just on top of your cupid’s bow accentuates your pout.
- Define your perfectly plump pout by outlining your lips with the slightest brush of powder or concealer around your mouth.
