    DuWop Lip Venom

    Lip Venom was the very first lip plumper on the market, creating the lip plumping category for the beauty industry. The tingly gloss uses essential oils to enhance lips’ natural color and shape by increasing circulation.

    With a name like ‘Lip Venom’, you would be forgiven for assuming this contains byproducts of bees, but this revolutionary pout-perfecting gloss actually gives you the ultimate bee-stung lip with 100% vegan ingredients.

    Still holding its own among the imitators, this lippy is infused with cinammon, ginger, jojoba and creamy avocado oils to help create a tingle, and the magical blend encourages a rush of blood to the surface. Its delicate rose shade is designed to suit lips on a universal scale, regardless of skin tone, so everyone can succumb to the power of this nice ‘n’ spicy glamour gloss.

    Celebrity fans include Lindsay Lohan, Jennifer Aniston, Teri Hatcher and Sienna Miller.
