You guys, I want lip injections really bad. There is something about bigger lips that I find so beautiful on a face! My lips are somewhere in between thin and full. I can't seem to pull the trigger on lip injections. I am scared of the pain, how it will turn out or if I might have a weird reaction.
I have a really inexpensive lip plumper by Elf that I use when I go out, it's really cheap and gives me some extra "plump."
I have wanted something a little more dramatic for a while, but still can't push myself to go for actual injections. I read about some homemade lip plumpers you can make yourself. The one that stood out to me was cayenne pepper and vaseline because I have those two items.
Excited to get some bigger lips without the injections, I got to work to test out this do it yourself lip plumper. (My husband thought I was absolutely crazy by the way.)
I mixed some vaseline in a dixie cup with a few pinches of cayenne pepper and used a cotton swab to apply the mixture.
This was my lips before I applied the homemade lip plumper with cayenne pepper.
I Applied the Mixture
It looks kind of gross on your lips (see photo!) But WOW it burned. I mean it was scorching hot and almost unbearable. I barely made it to 5 minutes, took this photo and wiped it off immediately afterwards.
Oh, and don't make the mistake of accidentally licking your lips with this on!
My lips continued to burn even after I rubbed it off. The results were crazy, I mean do you see how big my lips got in just 5 minutes?! Is this even safe?? The stuff we do for beauty.
After it stopped burning and some of the initial swelling died down, my lips looked pretty good. I could get use to this look! I kept looking at myself in the mirror. However, after about 30 minutes the entire plumping effect was gone. If I wanted to do this when I went out, I would literally have to apply it every 30 minutes, go through that same scorching fiery hell and return to my evening. That's just too much y'all.
I guess for now I'll stick to my regular lip plumper. This was a cool experiment though. Maybe eventually I'll cave and just get the injections, or just stay my natural self.
