My Secret Weapon For Big And Healthy Lips
By Anna Jimenez |
It seems like every day a new lip plumper pops up on the beauty scene. And for good reason-big, plush pillow lips are ideal thanks to the Angelina Jolies and Scarlett Johansons of the world. Plus, a puffy pout can also make you look younger since skinny lips are generally a bi-product of age and lost collagen.
Luckily, your lips could have a new friend in Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Cream ($18). A great option for someone who wants to "test-drive" what they may look like with fuller lips, but isn't ready for fillers (like myself). This "shimmer, no glimmer" lip cream gives me thicker lips with the swipe of a wand.
It's also still glossy (despite "gloss" not being present in the name) and replaces lost moisture in the lips because it contains hyaluronic filling spheres to pump the lips with hydration from the inside out. The peptide-infused cream also contains vitamins A and E to further nourish the lips.
For me, it's the cool, tingling sensation that I love about this product. Also the fact that my hair doesn't stick to it in the wind because nothing is worse than a plumper that stings or is as sticky as a flytrap. With a range of seven different colors, from fuchsia to peach, it's great to wear alone or over lipstick.
If you are ready for more dramatic and longer-lasting effects, hyaluronic acid-based fillers, like Juvéderm and Restylane, can be injected into the lips to add volume since they attract water to the area and swell the lips internally. Just make sure you choose a board-certified expert injector as your lips can look overdone if too much filler is used.
