I’m not at all tempted by lip fillers but from occasionally I do wish my lips were a little fuller! When I feel like having plumper lips I will line them or wear a nude gloss, but now I have another trick up my sleeve, the Bite Beauty Cinnamon Plumping Lip Oil! This has been out for a while, but I’m just now testing it out. I definitely think those who are envious of the famous Kylie Jenner pout will find something they like here!

A 99% natural cinnamon and Resveratrol-infused lip oil that naturally hydrates, shines, and plumps the appearance of lips in one spicy swipe.
When I first apply this to my lips there is lots of heat! I feel the spicy cinnamon heat up on my lips a little bit and the flush it gives my lips is in the orange/red family. It goes on really shiny and moisturizing, and then over the span of about 30 minutes, I notice that it gets a little stickier and dries down and fades away. It’s not a long lasting formula and won’t last through food and drink (most glosses won’t!), but the subtle plumping effect stays with me for about the length that this stays on my lips. I’d say maybe an hour or so?
There are definitely some awesome ingredients here- Bite Beauty prides itself on having food grade ingredients. Cinnamon bark and pink pepper are for stimulating circulation in the lips, peppermint oil provides the warming sensation, and French olive oil, pure jojoba, castor seed oil, and argan oil all hold five times their weight in moisture for long-lasting all-day hydration.
The doe foot applicator is how you apply this to your lips. I bet this would be glorious over top of a matte lipstick. I sometimes wish that lip glosses would come with a plastic applicator because I’d hate to apply this over a lipstick only to dirty the doe foot applicator and make it look all nasty. Even still, if you were going to go on Instagram and take a bunch of lip selfies, this would be your jam! I totally think those with a love for temporary lip plumper will enjoy this formula.
Have you tried this? Do you love it? What’s your favorite lip plumper?
