I'm considering getting lip injections to plump my thin little pathetic lips up. But is there am OTC product I can try in the mean time to get used to the look (and confirm that I want to go fwd)? No, I don't want to stick them in a vacuum cleaner hose bc they are chapped and bleed easily.

Lip injections OWW! No, Spider, just say no! Your lips are so sensitive - it will hurt like hell. Also, I could be wrong about this but my impression is that you can end up with lumps and bumps that travel ...

Have you tried any of the plumpers at Sephora?

Shimmery lip glosses over a light colored shimmery lipstick is the ticket. Try a high-end formula lip gloss that is fairly thick. Hie thee to Sephora.
2/c. Coarse hair med. density.
Protein sensitive but can use occasionally
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Smasters!
Stylers: Mix Curls in a Bottle into everything for shine. Terrible pj
Sometimes try roller sets or use a curling brush - classic glamor.
Every day is a gift
My friend got lip injections for a plumper look but they didn't last that long. Another makeup trick is using lip liner slightly outside the lines (just be careful to make it look natural - I'd stick with a color as close as possible to your natural lip color) also something I do is highlight the bow and the center of my bottom lip with a shimmery white pencil for a fuller look. If you have a sephora or a Mac nearby their employees are usually pretty knowledgable and could help you out with this

I certainly don't want lumpy lips! I think the permanent implants can travel...but the injections are more temporary and are just a semi-liquid chemical that will dissipate over time.

But I could be wrong. (Still trying to figure this out...)

I might want a permanent solution...but that really scares me.

Wildfox - those are good suggestions but I can barely keep any kind of make up on my lips. I want something that will be a long term 24 improvement.

eta - hmmmm well there is product by Cynthia Rowland (Luscious Lips $49.95) that is like a little pump/suction device that has some good reviews. I might give it a try.

I just don't think I could keep a lip gloss on my lips for a long enough time that there would be a noticeable effect.

I don't know of any permanent solution other than surgery and any product that promises lasting results I would be weary of. To get an idea of how it might look on you you could try brushing your lips with a wet toothbrush, it's something I do to exfoliate them and gives a temporary plumped look.

OK so I just ordered the lip plumping pump. I might take before and after pics...might post them if there is a noticeable difference. It was only $69 so not a big investment. Non-invasive and safe. The only concerning comment i read was that it could cause your teeth to shift a little. Gotta figure out a workaround for that bc I have had braces twice and will be getting more medically-necessary work doneand just can't have that.

I think the temporary liquid injections give a good result but that can get pricely if you have to do them twice a year.

The silcone implants, however, often do not look good...based on my online pics and vids I've seen. Not worth the risk imo!

Well I don't know much about lip injections but my mom used to use a lipgloss called city lips that are supposed to plump lips. It worked well for her. One time I accidently used that lipgloss and my lips felt a strong tingling sensation, which I heard is normal and means it's working. Idk, maybe you could give it a shot. It's up to you.
The lip pump is awesome. But the effects last only a few hours. However, they are supposed to last longer, the more I pump them. I would comtinue this and forget about injections but I think the suction pulled a piece of my composite bonding off my tooth. This might be a problem if I get veneers or crowns.

I guess I'll be heading to Sephora to sample the lip plumping lipglosses.

Here is a Pixiwoo video about lip injections. Nic talks about her experience right after she had it done. She must have ended up in favor of it because she seems to have continued with the injections. It's a honest video, though.

*Idk. That scares me. If I were going to do it I would search for a very good doc who does minimal injecting and has great reviews. This does fade over time but you could still end up too plump and looking crazy.

And a video about 5 different ways to plump your lips. It talks about the length of time each will last.

I have only tried one lip plumping gloss. It came in my Bare Minerals starter kit. I loved that gloss. I did not notice a huge difference but it perked up the lips and felt great. Sadly, I can not find it in stores.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

I use a dermaroller on my lips...a tiny needle roller used for skin rejuvenation. I use 0.5 mm needle length on my lips, which isn't long enough to draw blood. Stings a little, but you quickly get used to it. I then apply a skin firming DMAE gel (that I like to use all over my face).

I do it twice a day, after I wash my face. Only takes a minute or two and doesn't hurt. The result: firm plump lips that look better than the lips of my youth.

I use a 0.25 roller on my eye area, also followed with the DMAE gel. Fantastic results.

There is two procedures I am aware of. One is called perma lip which as actual procedure where you have an option of 3 sizes and is done by a plastic surgeon. There is also this thing called juviderm where you pay for the entire syringe but you can decide where you want it and the surgeon in inserts it as needed and you see exactly where it is done as it is done. Perma lip is morr permanent where as juviderm lasts many months and goes down. I know all of this because my bestfriend has been talking about procedures she has been wanting to do etc. and I have seen many videos and done research for her. I by no means have any first hand experience.

I do however have some makeup advice and remedies to make the most of what you've got. Take a highlighter and apply it to the middle part of you lips before applying lipgloss or after lipstick this can give the allusion of bigger lips. Thing of it like doing ombre but the lightest portion being the middle and make sure you blend and apply both products as you want it to look natural. Next make sure you exfoliate your lips and moisturize. I really like homemade and natural things. I would reccomend using brown sugar and olive oil as a scrub or even something as simple as a tooth brush or regular towel. After all the basic goal is to remove dead skin. Then moisturize with a lip balm or oil. Use lip liners outside the lines like someone else reccomended, try cayenne pepper and perhaps watch a Jenner lip tutorial on youtube (that's been a thing lately lol). At the end of the day some people might agree or disagree with getting lip injections or having procedures done. The most important thing is that you are happy.

Never heard of skin-firming gel either. This is really interesting. Thnx

A dermaroller has a few hundred tiny needles, not a blade that will cut through skin...but it does roll like a pizza cutter. Rolling for product penetration and skin rejuvenation is quite popular in the circles I hang out in.

DMAE is probably the ONLY product scientifically proven to firm skin. And it only works if it's formulated with the proper pH. The one I linked is a properly formulated DMAE product.
