31 Jan 2024

New to lip plumping gloss? We can’t wait to introduce you! Lip plumping gloss is a fun, easy way to achieve fuller lips in no time without the need for lip filler, and all you have to do is apply it like any other lip gloss. With plenty of colors to choose from in our Duck Plump Lip Plumping Gloss lineup, you’ll be rocking a duck pout in no time. And with free shipping on Duck Plump products from 2/1/24 – 2/15/24 in honor of the Big Game, there’s no better time to give it a try! But what is lip plumping gloss, and how does it work? Let’s dive into what lip plumping gloss is and four reasons why you need it in your life.

First Things First: How Does Lip Plumper Work?

The secret to lip plumping gloss isn’t so secret at all! Essentially, most lip plumping gloss works by applying mild natural irritants to the skin—like cinnamon or spicy ginger—that cause blood vessels to expand. With increased blood flow to your lips, the extra circulation causes a temporary plumping effect. Often this effect may be accompanied by a temporary tingling sensation as you can feel the plumping happening. Lip plumping gloss is designed to give a pain-free natural plump to lips without long-term alterations.

At NYX Professional Makeup, the proud leading plumping ingredient in our Duck Plump Extreme Sensation Plumping Gloss is spicy ginger. The vegan formula is intended to bring maximum plumping with minimum effort. Just gloss and go!

4 Reasons Why You Need Lip Plumper in Your Life

So now that you know what lip plumping gloss is and how it works, why do we think it’s a great choice to add to your makeup routine? Here are four reasons we think lip plumping gloss may be the right choice for you.

Reason #1: Gives You a Plump Pout Without the Injections

As we mentioned above, lip plumping gloss like our Duck Plump Extreme Sensation Plumping Gloss works because of ingredients like spicy ginger that are topically applied to the lips. This means no injections or appointments are needed—you can get poutier lips right at home or on the go.

This also means that unlike fillers or augmentation, lip plumping gloss provides temporary plumping. You can decide whether you want to reapply for continued plump lips or whether you want to go for a different look tomorrow, making it a great commitment-free option.

Reason #2: You Can Match Your Lip Color to your Fit

Duck Plump Lip Plumping Gloss isn’t just for plumping—it’s also for color! For a two in one product that plumps and serves as your go-to lip gloss, a lip plumping gloss can’t be beat.

Duck Plump Lip Plumping Gloss comes in 18 shades, which means there’s a plumping gloss to match your outfit, from vibrant weekend shades for a day at the stadium supporting your team, to bold colors like Pure Plump for living out your purple dreams during a night out, to muted tones and nudes for work-ready everyday wear. And if you just want a little bit of shine to finish your overall look, no worries there. The Clearly Spicy clear variety Duck Plumping Gloss provides plumping and shine with no extra color.

Reason #3: Adds Intense Shine & Color to your Lips

These shades won’t just match your outfit—they’ll bring attention to your lips with intense shine and color! Duck Plump High Pigment Lip Gloss doesn’t give up any vibrancy in order to focus on plumping. It’s a real two in one, with a high pigment formula for lasting color.

And of course, when you have that ducky pout, you’ll want to accentuate those lips with high shine. All 18 shades offer intense shine, but if color isn’t your top choice, the clear Clearly Spicy option is there for maximum shine without the pigment. Or, if you already have a favorite lipstick color you want to rock but you’d like to add a little shine, you can always layer Clearly Spicy for a custom lip look.

Reason #4: You Can Mix & Match with Lip Liners for a Custom Look

If eighteen shades won’t cover all of your color needs, don’t you worry—we see you, colorista! We’ve put together a color guide to pairing Duck Plump Lip Plumping Gloss with Line Loud Vegan Longwear Lip Liner.

Lip liner is an excellent choice for accentuating your lips even further, giving your pout defined edges that show just how plump your lips can be. Use your liner to contour, giving your lips more defined angles or rounder edges, or even overline your pout to give the impression of larger lips. Liner can be as subtle or as bold as you like, depending on which color of lip gloss you pair with it and how you choose to blend your colors. For a bolder or ombre look, you can wear a vibrant lip liner with a muted shade of lip gloss, or you can match colors to blend seamlessly for a more uniform look.

The Line Loud longwear lip pencil comes in 30 loud colors, including 7 new nude shades. Line Loud is designed to be creamy and smooth to go on easy and precisely with a soft finish, perfect for blending with your Duck Plump Lip Plumping Gloss. These lip shapers boast a formula infused with jojoba oil and vitamin e for smoother, softer looking lips. The colors are transfer, smudge, and fade resistant, to complement your duck lips all day long.

You can get as creative as you want mixing and matching the colors from Line Loud Lip Liner and Duck Plump Lip Plumping Gloss, but for classic mixes, we have our color guide. Be bold by pairing the vibrant colors of Peach Out Duck Plumping Lip Plumping Gloss with Stay Stuntin’ Line Loud Lip Liner, or keep it nude with combos like Bangin’ Bare + Ambition Statement, Mocha Me Crazy + No Equivalent, or Apri-caught + Daring Damsel.
