Blame it on a decade of watching The Real Housewives of Orange County or call it the Kylie Jenner effect: I am completely fixated on lips. Big, plump, unnatural looking lips. And when I consider my real mouth, it's more...minimalist. I want my lips on the cusp of over-the-top.
But injectables are a real commitment. They're expensive. And from what I've heard, they hurt like a mother. So in hopes of achieving the swollen lips of my dreams without stepping foot in a derm's office, I decided to test five lip plumping glosses. Here, how they taste, feel, look, and most importantly, how well they worked. SEE THE RESULTS.
