I already have quite naturally full lips, but for nights out or when I really want to make my lips pop, I use a lip plumper. I've always used the Soap & Glory product after lipliner, then I wait for it to work and lose a little tackiness before applying lipstick. I used to be a huge fan of Dior lipgloss, so when I saw their Lip Maximiser I hoped it would be just as good.

However, the Dior gloss didn't tingle or make any difference to my lips at all.. I don't know if it's because my lips are quite full anyway, but I know I definitely won't be repurchasing. It is considerably less sticky than the Soap & Glory one, so it works well used as a gloss over a matte lip colour, but it's not worth the hefty price tag.

With the Soap & Glory version you can feel it working as soon as you apply it. Your lips really start to tingle, which may be uncomfortable for some people, but they look very full and plumped up after, without it being unnatural. It's really sticky, so you may want to wait for it to dry out before applying lipstick, but it's a fantastic product, at a great price - especially with 3 for 2 at Boots.

Verdict: Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker

Does anyone else use a lip plumper to achieve a perfect pout?
