Through what seems like endless periods of boredom, TikTok has proven to be more than just an online space for quirky challenges and viral dance videos. With a steady stream of informative hauls and tutorial under the hashtags #Makeup and #Skincare hashtags, this Gen Z-driven platform now ranks near the top of our list for the best creative spaces for beauty.
With thousands of beauty enthusiasts serving us new looks and raving about share-worthy hacks every hour, you almost can’t help but buy into these—now-dubbed—TikTok-worthy products. Among Gua Shas and game-changing serums, the latest must-have to go viral is a $29 product from Too Faced that plumps your lips in seconds — I’m takling Kylie-esque lips without the need for needles or the precision and accuracy needed for perfectly, over-drawn lips.
Skeptical? So was I. But the results speak for themselves.
The lippie being called out is the cult-favourite Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme Lip Plumper.
The original clear formula is a plumping gloss designed to instantly give the lips a fuller and pouty look that is sure to last. Designed to be the perfect primer or topper to any of your favourite lipsticks, it also nurtures and condition the lips.
For extra tint, the formula comes in four rosy, pink shades.
SHOP IT: Nordstrom, $15-$29
Dubbed as a must-have amongst beauty enthusiasts worldwide, this lip plumper has earned its reputation by magically and instantly working on everyone who tries it (this editor included).
“I ordered the clear plumper. It works! I tried on half my lip and my family immediately could tell the difference and I could too. It does sting for 5 to 10 minutes but then it stops. So glad I found this plumper. I had tried the Buxom one and this works better,” says one five-star reviewer.
“I really didn’t have high expectations for this, as I’ve tried plumpest in the last and it just makes them glossy. But this actually made my lips look fuller and poutier! Yes, it tingles, but it goes away after like 5 minutes or so. But I can see how that can irritate some. I will be purchasing different shades,” says another.
While 97 per cent of users report that it delivers instant results and 93 per cent say lips look fuller and plumper after the initial use, many of the reviews mention a strong burning sensation upon application.
Like most lip plumpers, this one leaves a tingly sensation which is caused by its medically-proven blood vessel dilating technology.
“This is why people say beauty is pain,” stays TikTok user @nessaranndazzo who tested out the lip plumper on her boyfriend.
