Whilst I’d have loved to have been blessed with a pout to rival Angelina Jolie, unfortunately mother nature had other ideas. My lips are quite thin so I’m always on the hunt for a lip plumping products that does more than make my lips tingle. Here’s some of the better ones I’ve found.

Available in 6 shades.

Josie Maran Argan Lip Sting plumping butter
This little beauty uses the power of nature to give you a fuller looking pout. Created with nourishing and conditioning argan oil and honey infused lip butter with a sweet sting, the products work together to help create the illusion of naturally larger lips. The 100% argan oil replenishes lips with antioxidants, Vitamin E and essential fatty acids whilst the honey seals in moisture, soothes and enhances barrier recovery. The subtle sting of the honey helps to support natural circulation of the lips to boost volume, whilst konjac root ultra filling spheres smooth out lines and Volulip (a natural peptide and plant extract) helps to plump lips through hyaluronic acid synthesis.
