It’s time to talk sultry lips again. There is nothing more sensual than a perfect pout. Unfortunately, we are not all born with full lips like Angelina, but you don’t have to be born with an extraordinary pout to look kissable and sexy. We all have the potential with the right products.
DuWop Lip Venom

One of my good girlfriends is allergic to cherries, and when she eats them her lips get swollen, giving her a larger than normal pout. She debates getting her lips injected, but I suggest she avoid a needle and deal with her stinging allergic reaction from cherries for the fuller pout she desires. My point is that if you slightly irritate your lips you will have fuller ones, and you can enhance them further with certain beauty products. Before you go surgical, try natural and cosmetically researched products that can help you get pucker ready.
Over the years I have read and heard that people swear peppermint oil can help plump up lips. By applying a small amount on your lips you will irritate them and cause blood to rush to the lips, giving them a fuller appearance. Peppermint doesn’t just increase blood flow, but it also serves other helpful purposes. Peppermint is known to stimulate the mind, and help indigestion and nausea. Now, why wouldn’t you have it around? There is nothing better than a product that comes in handy mentally and physically.
C.O. Bigelow Cinnamint Lip Shine

This next item isn’t as helpful in aiding with mental issues, unless you claim your obsession with plumper lips is a severe sickness. This lip gloss is well known, and highly praised. The Lip Venom lip gloss by DuWop is a powerful plumping gloss that enhances lips’ natural color, and increases the definition of lips by increasing circulation with spicy cinnamon and ginger ingredients. Unlike the peppermint oil, DuWop Lip Venom actually gives lips a shiny smooth layer of gloss-- it’s an all in one product.
Increased lips seem to be the ultimate goal with these products, but if you want to look more natural with a juicy pucker, and keep your breath minty fresh, try the C.O. Bigelow Mentha Cinnamint Lip Shine. This is the ultimate combination of the peppermint and the DuWop lip gloss. It’s a lip balm; there is no color. The balm does have a glitzy shine that will last and keep lips moisturized. Soft lips, shine, and incredible fresh breath-- trust me, someone will fantasize about kissing you.
