The trend of big and bold lips has taken the world by storm, thanks to the Kardashians. With their lip kits selling out within seconds, it’s no exaggeration to say that the hype is here to stay. It goes without saying that many of us are dying to get the look and have tried various things to get a bit more volume and fullness, including home DIYs using spices or trying to learn a few makeup tricks.
Some of us have even contemplated getting lip fillers to achieve the look, but if you’re unsure about taking the plunge and going under the knife, or are just looking to have a bit of fun, lip plumpers are your safest bet to get the coveted plumper, voluminous and fuller lips.
The results are instantaneous, enabling you to flaunt your voluminous and luscious lips on a special event or a night out. They are also temporary, making them risk-free as you don't have to worry about not liking the final look or fear having a botched-up lip filler procedure.
Lip plumpers also add an instant shine and volume to your natural lips, making them look softer and smoother. Many lip plumpers on the shelf also have anti-ageing ingredients which help combat fine lines, giving a more youthful appearance to the lips.
While going for a plumper, it's best to go for natural ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid which is used in actual lip filler injections as well. It is a naturally occurring component in the body, which not only helps to attract and retain moisture but also promotes the synthesis of collagen which gives the lips a firmer look. Active ingredients like polypeptides also make for a great lip plumper and so do vitamins such as vitamin E and C, which provide lasting hydration and moisture.
Try to avoid products with artificial fragrances and flavors which can dry out the lips. Also steer clear of ingredients such as peppermint oil, menthol, capsicum and cinnamon as they work to make the lips look plumper by increasing blood flow to it. This can make one's lips feel irritated and inflamed, making them agitate and doing more harm than good. They can also cause an allergic reaction in people with sensitive skin.
The Leovard Lip Luster, made up of all natural, organic ingredients and proprietary herbal extracts, is a luxury lip balm, aimed at giving you naturally plump, soft and delectable lips.
The star ingredient, hyaluronic acid, helps to attract and retain moisture, making the lips feel hydrated. It also makes the lips look plumped and pouty, much like a lip filler done well. It also works great at reducing the appearance of wrinkling and fine lines while also promoting wound healing.
