CAN a plumper get your lips looking kissable by Valentine’s Day? Our testers pucker up to find out...

Lip Voltage The Powerhouse Trio Power Lip Plumper, £25 (

“The text on the box promises a ‘warm tingle sensation’. Warm it was not - this stuff burns! Like using a Scotch bonnet chilli as a lipstick, it certainly felt like my lips were swelling, but even if they were, I couldn’t handle the heat again.” 1/5

PoutyLipzz Lip Serum Plump Up The Volume, £19.99 (

“This clear gel tastes minty and doesn’t burn like other plumpers can. It glides on smoothly and leaves lips feeling moist throughout the day. It’s recommended that you use it three times a day for 29 days - after a couple of weeks, I did notice my lips looked slightly fuller, but not as much as I’d hoped.” 3/5

BeautyLab Tri-peptide Collagen Lip Plump, £15 (

“This creamy anti-ageing serum, applied through a push-up brush applicator, glides on seamlessly. As it gets to work, the stinging sensation lasts for about 15 minutes, but after applying lipstick on top, the lipstick didn’t bleed as much into my wrinkles. However, it wore off quite quickly. Needed re-applying regularly.” 4/5
