Homemade Lip Plumping Gloss

Homemade Lip Plumping Gloss

So, I read that lip plumper is made of either cinnamon or a cayenne pepper/ginger mix. These ingredients aggravate your lips to the point of reddening and swelling. Well, why the hell would I pay $15.00 a tube for that? I’m perfectly capable of aggravating myself.

Just a few ingredients!

I bought some Vaseline jelly, the Coco Butter kind. I mixed it accordingly:

  • Like, 5 shakes of cayenne pepper
  • Maybe a 1/4 teaspoon of ginger powder. It looked like a lot.
  • A bunch of cinnamon

Basically, I added the pepper until the Vaseline changed color some. Then I added some ginger to that until it smelled kind of gingery. Then I added enough cinnamon to give it some more color and I guess the cinnamon gives it a more pleasant flavor/smell. I’d say just mix stuff until it looks right. I’m not liable, so do whatever the hell you want.

I had an old Clinique sample jar that I had recently scraped all of the magical night-cream goodness out of. I rinsed it out and did all my mixing right in the pot with a toothpick. Mine has a nice bronze color to it. It tingles a lot, but not unbearably.

I’m a tough broad, though, and these measurements aren’t exact, so your experience will most definitely vary. Before I put it on, I tested it on Mr. T. He survived, so I know it’s safe for the rest of humanity. Enjoy!~
