Plump Up the Volume

March 21, 2024

As skincare and beauty trends go, plumping is here for the long haul. Whether it’s fuller lips or healthy-looking juicy skin, many of us are lusting after the effects of plumping.

For some, this means booking in with an esthetic practitioner to go under the needle. In fact, if social media is anything to go by, a lot of people are turning to lip fillers and hyaluronic acid injections to boost skin’s plumpness. But, and here’s the secret, you don’t need to go to such lengths, not when there are makeup formulas proven to do the plumping for you – no needle required!

It's fair to say that BUXOM is the creator of the OG lip plumper, the plumper that began our fascination with fuller lips. And why? Because it really works.

Simple Steps for Fuller, Plumper Lips

If you’ve ever wondered how to make lips look fuller, the answer is PLUMP SHOT Lip Serum as it’s the ultimate faux filler. It’s a cocktail of plumping and hydrating ingredients including Collagen Peptides, Tri-Peptides, Hyaluronic Acid Filling Spheres, and a unique Invigorating Complex. Plus, it contains nourishing oils like Tsubaki, Avocado, and Jojoba Oils. Clinical testing confirms this plumping formulation visibly plumps lips by 18% and reduces lines and wrinkles in the lips by 34%*.

Available in 20 shades ranging from nudes, to reds, corals to berry tones, and including 5 new Multichrome shades, PLUMP SHOT Lip Serum is the one step pigmented plumper. After application there’s a gentle tingle that signals stimulated blood flow and, before you know it, lips are fuller and juicier.

Additional Benefits of Lip Plumpers

And the plumping action doesn’t stop there. Fillers are used elsewhere on the face to restore and boost volume and make skin appear fuller and plumper. Now you can mimic the affects with PLUMP SHOT Collagen Peptides Advanced Plumping Blush which visibly plumps cheeks by 25%.

As the first clinically proven plumping blush, the formula defines cheeks, blurs imperfections, and nourishes and plumps skin with a Plumping Complex of collagen and elastin, plus Collagen Peptides, and a trio of oils including Tsubaki, Avocado, and Jojoba. It couldn’t be easier to apply, just pat and blend onto skin using fingertips or a cheek brush. Coming in 5 shades spanning a soft neutral through to a punchy berry flush, you can easily dial-up your glow.

How to Get Fuller Lips with Plumping lip Makeup

But, back to lips, if you’re looking for the how to make your lips bigger and the lip looks that will give you a fuller, statement-making pout, read on…

1. Layer Up

PLUMP SHOT Lip Serum can be worn on its own or you can layer up with an existing favorite lip color. Apply a lip color such as Keep It Spicy Full-On Plumping Lipstick in Candy Apple, a universal brown nude shade that also adds to your plump with Hyaluronic Acid Filling Spheres and Plumping Peptides, or a chose a liquid lipstick like Full-On Plumping Lip Matte (which is a great matte lip plumper) in your favorite shade. Allow the color to settle for a moment before layering over your best plumping lip gloss and wait for satisfying tingle.

2. Go Ombre

Combine the makeup artist technique of using light shades in the center of your lips to create fullness, with the plumping powers of PLUMP SHOT™ Lip Serum and you have a full on pout on your hands. Begin by lightly lining the perimeter of your lips with lip liner a shade darker than your chosen lip color (try Power Line™ Plumping Liner), and then paint your entire lip in your chosen shade of PLUMP SHOT™ Lip Serum. Allow that a moment to settle before blending the Multichrome shade Spellbound Pink to the very center of your lips to give the illusion of even more fullness.

3. Get Juicy

Makeup artists will often apply a clear reflective gloss over the top of a lip color to give the effect of more volume. To mimic the results, apply your chosen lip color and then follow with a layer-or-two of PLUMP SHOT™ Lip Serum in the shade Filler which is truly translucent but instantly imparts a glassy, glossy lacquer while plumping.
