    Seems to me that cinnamon works as a ‘lip plumper’ only because it irritates your skin, and the ‘plumping’ is the swelling result of a negative reaction to a substance that your skin does not like. Does this sound healthy? I suppose there are probably no long term effects (unless you’re allergic to cinnamon of course) but I don’t see how putting my body through this kind of trauma (mild though it may be) is a good thing. I can love my thin lips without having them altered.

      Hey Marissa, thanks for reading! Many store-bought lip plumpers are actually smell/taste like cinnamon or very minty. So I think the DIY variety is not too far off. But I agree, there is nothing wrong with a thinner lip. No one needs a full pouty lip to look beautiful!

      if you love your thin lips and don’t want to alter them or think its unhealthy then don’t do it! It’s not something most of us are going to do every single day anyway. Just on occasion. I’m sure there are plenty of other things out there that people are doing that are way more dangerous and unhealthy than this.
