As we head into Spring and Summer, the time has come to flush out our lips and give them life again, meaning that this story is all about easy suggestions to get full lips fast!
Lips are a serious focus feature that we have accentuated with color and texture over the millennia of human civilization; with red being the predominant color of choice for the lips for the last several thousand years.
Luckily today’s technology allows us a dizzying selection of options to color, define and plump up our pouts; to make our lips more pronounced and give them a dewy, glossy texture or a powdered finish, depending on your preferences.
So let’s start diving into a series of stand-out lip products, designed to help you improve and perfect your pout for any occasion you might have, I hope you enjoy these suggestions to get full lips, fast!.
Lip Oil Magic
NYX Professional Makeup makes great and inexpensive products that have a high performance for their price-point. I have several of their products in my personal collection and I love how they out-perform many of my more expensive products.
This year, the newly launched Fat Oil Lip Drip from NYX Professional Makeup came out and became instantly viral, selling out super fast. The Fat Oil Lip Drip comes with a large doe-foot applicator that spreads wonderfully well on the lips.
Coming in a selection of 8 various shades, these sheer lip colors will do wonders to moisturize and gloss up your lips. The Fat Oil Lip Drip by NYX Professional Makeup is the perfect choice for anyone who wants a sheer color that gives the lips a gorgeous sheen and reflection, without the added stickiness of a gloss.
A Liner Unlike Any Other
The Artist Colour Pencil from Make Up For Ever has quickly become my favorite pencil formula, the pencils are highly pigmented, easily blend-able, last forever and work well on top of other products and directly on the skin as well.
Firstly, the Artist Colour Pencil by Make Up For Ever is a multi-use product, it can be used on the eyes, the brows, the lips or anywhere on the face. This is a true makeup artist product that can be worked by everyone as the formula is easy to use and spread on the skin.
As seen in the picture above, there is an incredible selection of shades to chose from in the Artist Colour Pencil lineup, allowing you to choose the best tone suited to your lips or to accompany your lipstick.
Pro-Tip: Use your liner to line over your entire lips, this allows your lipstick to hold onto the pigment of the pencil, which will help to set on your lips for a longer period, allowing the color to stay longer on your lips.
If you love a long-lasting liquid lip, I highly recommend the amazing selection of shades that Make Up For Ever has for its Rouge Artist For Ever Matte 24HR Longwear Liquid Lipstick, I wrote all about this product in depth in a previous story, here.

Oh Balm! For Your Lips
Florence by Mills has been taking the beauty world by storm, this fresh company is the brainchild of Millie Bobby Brown, famous for her role as Eleven, in the hit Netflix series, Stranger Things.
I have been playing with many of their products and expect more reviews in the coming months, as I place more of their amazing cosmetics in future stories. Currently I am loving the Oh Whale! Tinted Lip Balm by Florence by Mills, not only is the packaging completely adorable, the product itself is super hydrating and refreshing on the lips.
The Oh Whale! Tinted Lip Balm by Florence by Mills is super hydrating on the lips and leaves the lips with a silky feeling, the formula features Jojoba Seed Oil, Shea Butter and Avocado Oil and Vitamin E, all excellent ingredients to keep your pout well moisturized and fully kissable.
A Little Gloss Changes Everything
I love gloss, always have and always will, there’s something about a wet and reflective lip that just makes the lips look exquisitely juicy and lustrous, even though the texture of most glosses on the lips, is anything but soft.
The Lip Laquer from e.l.f Cosmetics is a great wear-alone option if you want a simple pop of color to the lips that will give a wet finish. Otherwise it is a great way of adding extra texture and reflection to your lips, if you feel that the texture is too dry or lacks reflection.
e.l.f Cosmetics makes some of the most affordable makeup in the world, spoil yourself and pick up a few shades to go with your summer wardrobe, it won’t hurt the bank and it will give you a lovely, diverse selection of reflective, colored options for your lips.
A Little Filler Goes A Long Way
The fullness of one’s youthful pout does sadly diminish with time, meaning that the full and voluptuous pucker you have in your youth will begin thinning out, as you mature and gain more experience in your life.
This process, though natural, may be unfortunate for many of those who appreciated their full lips in their early days, the good news is that today there are multiple options when it comes to re-plumping your pout.
Though true, an over-lined lip can often give the impression of more volume to the lips, however once the product is washed away, any volume it illusion-ed is completely lost.
This is why I suggest to many of my friends, clients, students and colleagues that they should begin to look into dermal fillers. Nothing on the market today, will get you full lips, fast, like a dermal filler will.
To fill out your lips, the procedure is done with various small injections in the lip area with a dermal filler that is comprised of Hyaluronic Acid, a naturally occurring substance in our body that will slowly break down over time.
A dermal filler typically lasts anywhere between 6 months to a year and does wonders for augmenting the volume and to bring back the soft, cushion-type quality to the lips. After the procedure there is a bit of swelling and some people can experience bruising, I find that the filler integrates more fully into the lip over the next weeks.
I get my work done at Access Medica, and they have been helping me to keep my pucker plump and juicy and full now for years, I love the approach that the injection specialist has, always striving for a natural and balanced result.
A great investment for anyone who wants just a bit more volume and voluptuousness to their lips, what better time to have seductive lips than for Spring and Summer? Contact my friends at Access Medica, they will help you get the lips you’ve been dreaming of.
If you’re curious for more information, I write more in-depth about my experience with dermal filler, here.
Happy Lips For Spring & Summer Fun
Regardless of the type of lip product you enjoy using, there is a high likelihood that you will be putting something on your lips over the next few months, to give them color, glaze them up, or to hydrate them.
Whether you are thinking of investing in dermal filler or simply a light balm to give your lips some needed, extra moisture; always pick what works best for you!
Full and luscious lips are definitely fun to have and very inspiring to kiss, if albeit, at times, a bit sticky with gloss.
Until next time my darlings, pucker up and stay beautiful!
