Got unplump lips? Wish you could have those covetable pillow lips ( I am NOT talking to you, Mieke...you have the most perfect lips in all of the land hence the reason I am doing this test and not you...lucky!) like those famies you follow on Insta ...PS THEY ALL HAVE INJECTIONS... you're welcome :)
Well guess what? Wanna know what store bought plumper works best? We are here to help! We traveled to our local Ulta (not local at all but they have a wider range of products from low to higher end so we started there to make plump lips assessable for us lip challenged.
Still not feeling the plumpers and wanna really plump them with injectables? Well please be careful who you go to. Please do NOT go to someone who gives coupons out or even if they have a ton of followers and are Insta famous. Go to a reputable injector, read reviews, talk to friends...it is YOUR face and body...you have to handle with love. Now for our picks...
So here are the results! (PS did we mention none of the ones we chose are tested on animals?)
Peppermint oil- While this had a tingling and breath freshening effect it just left my already dry lips (i need to drink more h2o) even more dry feeling
NYX Plump It Up (in Lisa)- We both use this everyday for the color alone. Its beautiful and helps our lips feel fuller but its more of enhancing than plumping
Buxom Lip Polish (in Allison)- Great color and texture with a slight tingle and plumping effect. The gloss itself made my lips look slightly larger
*THE WINNER!* Soap&Glory Extreme Plump XXL- Ok that name is SUPER dramatic...super. There is not extreme or even XXL happening BUT it definitely did the job. Very tingly and my lips stayed pretty fillish for about 10 min.
And to see me in bad lighting with a big pimple on my chin nerding out in my first YouTube video on the Thingweheart channel look no further... dont feel bad if you have to fast forward!
Need a list of more cruelty free brands from Sephora or Ulta? Here you go!
