Luscious Lips Manual Lip Plumper

OK, here is an interesting, if not a bit odd, product. Luscious Lips is a manual lip plumper.

Luscious Lips Lip Plumper Device

You actually use this device to manually plump your lips. Here is what the company says about it:

Luscious Lips is a lip pump that increases blood flow to the mouth. The device creates a vacuum seal around the mouth in order to bring fluid into the lips. A few pumps a day will leave your lips smoother, firmer, and up to 50% larger.

Key Features:

Increases Lip size quickly and easily
Alternative to collagen injection
Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
Safe and Affordable
Natural Looking Results

To use:
Simply tilt your head back and place the Luscious Lips device over your mouth. Hold the device firmly, and suck out all of the air to create the vacuum. Then, gently pull the outer cylinder slowly, and you will begin to feel your lips pull into the cylinder. Hold for a few seconds and then release and repeat until you reach the desired plump.

The company cautions that beginners must start with a 2 week conditioning process to allow their lips and mouth to gradually build up the tissues in the mouth.

I gave it a try and definitely recommend that slower start. It doesn’t feel like the device is doing much when in use, but you can feel it after! As for seeing plumping, from the get go I did see some that would last for a hour or more after each use. The cream that comes with the deluxe set is also kind of nice. It isn’t a balm. It is a regular cream that absorbs nicely and leave the lips quite soft.

Luscious Lips retails for $49.95. The Deluxe Kit is $59.95 and includes the moisturizing cream.


Lipstick Queen Big Bang Theory Illusion Gloss

If you was serious color payoff, Lipstick Queen products are the way to go. Lipstick lovers rave about the lip stick shades, and now the line welcomes Big Bang Theory – Illusion Gloss to the collection.

Lipstick Queen Illusion Gloss

This gloss aims at using the right ratio of shimmer to shine to create the illusion of plumper lips (it is not an actual lip plumper) and is available in the following eight shades:

  • Time – shimmery golden nude
  • Expansion – shimmery pale pink
  • Space – shimmery grey pink
  • Infinite – shimmery pinky peach
  • Black Hole – shimmery deep wine
  • Creation – shimmery rose
  • Cosmos – shimmery ruby
  • Energy – shimmery bright red

I gave a tube a try and the color payoff is amazing. This is a well tinted gloss, yet it is not sticky and does indeed have a great shimmer to shine ratio.

Lipstick Queen Big Bang Theory – Illusion Gloss (SRP $20) is be available at all Barneys New York stores, Space NK, Henri Bendel and online at


Prana Plumping Diva Lips

I love lip plumpers, but it is no secret that I think most of them don’t really work. I just still love them because I like the bit of tingling sensation that they give and many of them are still really nice glosses. Well, once in awhile one comes along that actually seems to work too, and then I get really impressed.

Prana Plumping Diva Lips gloss has a particularly strong sensation to it, and when I tried it I did get some actual visible plumping from it that lasted for a decent amount of time.

Here is a bit on it from the company literature:

Vitamin-based stimulants enhance circulation and produce the lush fullness. Collagen-enhancing Centella Asiatica helps lip stay naturally plump, instead of thinning with age – a nice long-term improvement. Age repair comes from quartet of peptides including blockbuster Matrixyl 3000®, and an infusion of Acmella Oleracea extract, one of newest anti-aging discoveries. This member of the isobutylamide family may be the most potent way to erase and prevent fine “expression lines” on the upper lip. And finally, Plumping Diva Lips also contains Octyl Methoxycinnamate, considered the best zinc oxide sunscreen available.

Overall, the gloss from this one is also quite nice. It is very shiny and there is no stickiness. The addition of sunscreen is also a nice touch. I don’t have a photo of this one, but it is a fairly standard sized tube with a sponge applicator. Diva Lips runs at $36 for a .23 oz tube at the Prana website.
