Pout Clout Perfection: How Lip Plumping Pens Work

By Victoria Benitez

More than just a gloss, lip plumpers are the powerhouse staple gloss to keep your lips smooth and plump. Made with a high-performance shine and glossy finish, these glosses contain ingredients that nourish and soften the lips. Our formulas contain lip-loving ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin E, and fruit extracts to hydrate and soothe the lips while plumping up the pout. The sheer but buildable shades instantly melt onto the lips as an all-in-one lip plumper, gloss, and balm that can be worn alone or paired with your favorite lipstick. We won’t blame you if these lip plumpers become your new personality!

What is Lip Plumper

Plump up the volume! Drench your lips in a plush, nourishing, lip-plumping gloss that delivers high shine while enhancing your lips for a fuller, pillowy pout. You can have it all with a lip plumper! There is no need to go under the needle; instead, treat your lips to a lip-plumping gloss infused with lip-loving ingredients and a non-sticky formula. Our formulations are infused with juicy ingredients that your lips will love, like vitamin E, coconut oil, blueberry, watermelon, and pomegranate extracts. Most lip plumpers are available in a gloss, balm, or serum formula that causes a cooling tingling sensation. That invigorating, cooling tingle and sensation is designed to make the lips appear fuller and more defined in a few swipes. Within minutes, you’ll notice a visible difference in lip size.

What are the Benefits of Using a Lip Plumper

Let’s be honest: your lips deserve as much care as your skin. We choose lip plumpers as our preferred lip treatment for its quick and temporary solution for fuller lips. These lip-loving glosses and balms keep lips smooth and plump, perfect for all-day lip hydration. From clear to sheer, buildable color, we offer a range of shades to choose from. One of the biggest benefits of using lip plumpers is that they’re a non-invasive alternative to surgical procedures, so you won’t need to rely on any filler or injections.

We love our lip plumping pen for its nourishing ingredients, including blueberry, watermelon, and pomegranate fruit extracts. This 3-in-1 lip treatment is a plumper, gloss, and balm all in one. On days we want to plump up the volume, we reach for our Lip Plumper for instant lip-plumping power and soothing hydration formulated with Vitamin E and Coconut Oil.

How Does Lip Plumper Work

No injections are needed here! Add a little spice to your lips with a lip-plumping gloss that instantly and temporarily makes your lips appear voluminously plumped. These lip treatments typically offer a mild tingling sensation when applied. Ingredients like Menthone Glycerin Acetal in provides a cooling sensation similar to menthol. This cooling effect can make the lips feel temporarily fuller. Additionally, our Pout Clout plumper contains ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid, which is known for its ability to retain moisture. Combining both ingredients helps to stimulate blood flow to the lips by promoting circulation and giving lips the hydration they need.

Can You Use Lip Plumper with Lipstick and Lip Liner

A good base goes a long way! There’s no gatekeeping here; we love to pair our lip plumping gloss with the O FACE Satin Lipstick and Cream Lip Liner. First, find your preferred shades to pair together and apply the lip liner to clean, hydrated lips. Outline your lips with one of our eight easy-to-wear Cream Lip Liner shades, carefully following the natural shape of your lips to prevent feathering.

Next, pick up your favorite pigmented satin lipstick and fill in your lips by swiping the color from the center, moving outward to cover the lips entirely with color. Lastly, top the lips with a complimentary shade of a lip-plumping gloss and allow it to sit on the lips for several minutes to achieve its desired plumping effect. All three products' long-lasting and hydrating formulas are comfortable for everyday wear. Simply tint, plump, and go!
