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 and some 3A. Modified CG.
Protein sensitive
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Conditioners: Curl Junkie Beauticurls Strengthening Conditioner,
Deep condish: Curl Junkie Curl Rehab
Stylers: Mix Curls in a Bottle into everything for shine. Terrible pj
Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
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.
