The rage among people nowadays is to have fuller lips. And the bee method that Julia Roberts used in Mirror Mirror is no longer needed as  the lip plumpers available these days can give you temporary enhancement of lips that might last a couple of hours.

Containing ingredients like cinnamon, ginger mint, wintergreen, or capsicum they boost blood flow to the lips, leading to mild swelling and redness.

Lip exfoliators are a convenient update on this old trick. Sold by themselves or with cosmetic or therapeutic lip plumpers, these exfoliators use gentle ingredients like sugar or poppy seeds or mild acid exfoliants to buff away dry skin. That gentle scrubbing amplifies the natural colour of your lips and provides a smooth, crease-free surface so that the application of a plumping lip gloss creates an even more heightened illusion of lips.

There are no side effects of using lip plumper on your lips. It simply enhances your lips and makes them look naturally fuller and plumper. There are tons of lip enhancing glosses on the market, but the top ones can add a natural plump to your pout without the hassle.
