So, what’s the deal with lip plumping lipsticks and lip gloss? Do they actually work or is it just a whole lot of bullsh*t?

Great question. The truth is this: lip plumpers work temporarily to swell the skin of your lips but the “tingling” feeling that you might be feeling is actually caused by menthol (or a similar ingredient) and has nothing to do with the swelling effect.
One thing you should know before you start going crazy using these though: It’s not really such a fab idea to use them too often because the constant stretching and swelling of your lips can actually cause some damage to your skin.
That said, here are a few of my favorites that I recommend you use occasionally:
