The Best Lip Plumpers Ever

Updated on October 9, 2012

Lip Plumping Glosses and Treatments Galore!

Plump, pouty lips are hot. Nothing says sexy like a set of perfectly kissable lips. With all of the plumping lip colors and treatments on the market today, your options are limitless. But which plumpers work best? Well, that depends on what you're looking to get out of it. In this guide, I review some of the most highly sought-after lip plumpers and the pros and cons of each.

LipFusion XL
LipFusion XL

LipFusion XL by Fusion Beauty

This high-impact plumping gloss uses hyaluronic acid and active micro collagen spheres to create a dramatically full appearance. When first applied, you may experience a tingling sensation. The flavor is minty and is less than appealing to many users, however you may find that the unpleasant taste is worth it for the results. Fusion Beauty claims that LipFusion XL delivers both instant and long-term results with daily use. While the instant results are undeniable, the long-term effects are questionable. The bottom line is for a high-quality product that delivers an awesome punch to your pucker, LipFusion XL has it in the bag. The biggest con for this product however, is the steep price. At around $50 a tube, it certainly isn't as affordable as other lip plumpers on the shelf.

Buxom Big and Healthy Lip Polish

With a $19 price tag, Buxom Big and Healthy Lip Polish is an affordable lip plumper with high-dollar results. This plumping lip gloss comes in a variety of beautiful, glossy colors that are pretty enough to be worn alone, unlike other plumpers that are clear. With vitamins A and E, it not only plumps your pout, but keeps lips smooth and soft. The plumping effect is subtle, not dramatic, but definitely noticeable. Like most lip plumpers, it produces a mild tingling sensation when applied. The results last, on average, a few hours before reapplying is necessary.

Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme

This extreme lip plumping treatment boosts lip volume for instant, dramatic results with a high-gloss finish. I addition to the instant plumping effect this gloss gives, it also promises long-term results when used twice a day. Notable ingredients in Lip Injection Extreme include: vitamin E, dehydrated marine sponge, and natural collagen boosters. When first applied, Lip Injection Extreme causes some significant tingling which soon subsides and is followed by a deepening of you natural lip color and increased lip volume. For around $28, this lip plumping gloss is worth a try. You won't be disappointed.

Dior Addict Lip Maximizer High Volume Lip Plumper

Dior Addict Lip Maximizer comes in a sheer colored gloss that gives a nice, natural looking boost to your lips. While not as intense as other "extreme" plumping products, the results are perfectly beautiful and help create a lush, kissable pout. The main selling point to this plumper is that with daily use, it claims to increase the size of your lips in just 15 days. It also has a pleasant cooling sensation as opposed to the harsh stinging feeling commonly associated with other lip plumpers. Using a blend of collagen and marine-based fillers, this gloss is packed with the high-quality ingredients you'd expect from a designer brand like Dior. The price falls on the higher end, but not as high as other designer plumpers. A tube of Dior Addict Lip Maximizer will cost you around $30.

DuWop Lip Venom Review
DuWop Lip Venom Review

DuWop Lip Venom

Last but not least comes the classic lip plumper that started it all. DuWop Lip Venom uses a blend of essential oils like cinnamon and ginger to increase circulation to the lips causing an immediate plumping sensation. Lip Venom, like it's name suggests puts out a powerful sting, so use with caution! When you apply Lip Venom, the feeling is a spicy, somewhat harsh tingling. However, the feeling fades pretty quickly and the plumping effects last for a few hours. For an immediately sexy pout, in a flattering transparent gloss, this classic has got you covered. As for cost, at an average of $16 a tube, it poses very little threat to your budget.
