I think it’s more about psychology than actual visual difference with those lip-plumping glosses. If they really worked wouldn’t we know about it?

To make your lips look bigger, try out a high-shine gloss—reflecting the light increases the attention on your lips.

@gabrielleelise1981: I second you on the Lip Fusion being the best!

I’m addicted to lip plumper ladies! Some work, some don’t. All the Mac ones are crap…love the gloss, but the plumper doesn’t work. Lip Venom is okay, but there are better ones out there. I really like the colors of the Pout lip plumper line and it does a good job on the plumping side. I’ve even had a friend who’s good with essential oils make me a gloss from scratch (it worked), but I would still vote Lip Fusion as number one. It does sting, but that means it’s working. I’ve found with most that if the first use stings a lot then it will work better (beauty=pain?? lol). The thing about Lip Fusion is that the effects last a lot longer than the other. I felt as though my lips were more “permanently” plumped (meaning they stayed looking fuller without having the pile the gloss on every 5 minutes!).

I’m a lip gloss fien so trust me when I say that Lip Fusion is my favourite.

They do work… like PP said it is due to an ingredient that irritates the lips.  It’s not a huge difference though and a lot of people wouldn’t notice.  Also, most of them are much more sticky than regular lip gloss.

They may make you lips look ever so slightly more plump for maybe an hour tops and that’s it.  Don’t waste your money.

Lip Venom worked for me!  It stings a little though 🙂

I like the Sally Hansen kind – it tingles but I do think it works.  I have full lips, so just use it along the inside edge of my upper lip for a little “lift” at the bow. 

 Per Mrs. Peters’ advice, I am going to try out Lip Fusion, too.

@popover: Try it for sure! It’s seriously the only one that I seen an actual difference with.

@Mrs.KMM: I agree that hardly any of them work, but there are a couple where I have seen a good difference.

I used one of these when I added some into an order I was placing from an online discount cosmetics site. Oh, indeed, it works. I was surprised by how well it worked, and more than a little alarmed at the stinging and tingling that accompanied my enlarged lips, so I scrutinized the ingredients. What’s causing your lips to swell? That’s capsaicin. The stuff that makes habanero peppers hot. Of course your lips swell! I was amused to realize that, and somewhat relieved that it was at least a natural chemical and not something experimental that was going to give me lip-cancer or something. But yeah, it only lasts a couple minutes. I could see it being useful if you’re getting photos taken. I think I tossed it after showing a few friends.

Maybe just rub some habenero peppers? Laughing They are like 8-10 for less than a buck! Hehe! Laughing

Glad it worked out for you, Sasha!  I think the irritant make your lips pinker, too, which I like.

I used Lip Injection by Too Faced and it made my lips look a lot poutier, fuller and red (due to the swelling). It stings big time though!

I tried Lip Venom, don’t remember seeing a big difference.

Go to sephora and test out the products, otherwise invest in a good lipstick and gloss and try using a neutral liner to draw slightly outside your natural lip lines.
