What are we to do on the eve of a big event when we are yearning to feel just a little more Angelina Jolie? Bee sting? Bar fight? Three hours of lip tapping? The options are endless. And while they all seem quite alluring, we were hoping for something a little more compact. Eureka. In walks lip plumper. End scene. Standing ovation. We happily introduce you to 16 of our favorite reasons to actually want to rock a fat lip.

1. DuWop Lip Venom ($16): Just shy of letting a baby snake bite you on the mouth, this will get you the same effect with less yack factor.

2. Smashbox O-Plump Intuitive Lip Plumper ($26): A plumper that knows just when we need it, this plumper reads our chemistry and kicks in just in time. That’s some straight-up bestie backup if you ask us.

3. Buxom Full-On Lip Polish ($19): A go-to when you need a plumper that’s packed with pigment, this polish packs so many colors we’ve lost count.

4. Bite Beauty Cinnamon Plumping Lip Oil ($22): Cinnamon and pink pepper should be a superhero duo. Oh wait. They are! Can you take the heat? Join them, if you dare.

5. Fusion Beauty LipFusion InFATuation ($29): Technology like AmpliFat does not sound good in anything BUT a lip plumper. Word on the street is that 28 days continuous usage gets you a nice pillowy pout. Get your fat lip on.

6. Dr. Perricone Lip Plumper ($35): Fine lines and wrinkles don’t stand a chance with this stuff! There’s no room for lazy collagen here. And with orange sherbert flavor, we can’t disagree.

7. Too Faced Lip Injection ($22): No, no, no. It’s not actually a lip injection! It just feels like one. This will get you a plumpy pucker sans a hefty bill or a metro ride to a plastic surgeon’s office. Sweet.

8. Dior Addict Lip Maximizer ($33): We are addicted to lip plumper! Lucky for us, Dior knows. And knows just what to do about it. Less than luscious lips beware and be gone.

9. Sugar + Butter Lip Exfoliator and Plumper ($25): Jane Iredale has done it again. Seriously. Who thinks of combining exfoliator and plumper? She does. End of story.

10. Soap + Glory Sexy Mother Pucker XL ($22): When they say Extreme Plump, they mean extreme plump. Ain’t no half steppin’. Either you’re in. Or you’re out. But you should probably be in.

11. Talika Smile + Kiss Duo ($37): Clearly, we can’t rock lusciously full lips with less than brilliant teeth. That would just be bananas.

12. Laura Mercier Lip Plumper ($30): We never question Laura Mercier. We only thank her for kindly giving us products we want in the colors we need. Every time.

13. Eminence Cinnamon Kiss ($26): One would be a fool to turn down a cinnamon kiss! On either end. Make sure you and your 100% au natural puckers are ready to roll with this Leaping Bunny favorite.

14. Too Faced Lip Injection Color Bomb ($21): If being too faced means having a color-bombed lip, we’ll take it. Better act quick. Colors are sellin’ out like hotcakes.

15. Fusion Beauty LipFusion XL ($50): Micro injected collagen treatment. Yep. We said it. It’s like an injection without the in, the ject and the shun. Just power packed punch straight to the lips.

16. Cayenne and Kool-Aid DIY Lip Plumper: For the gals who don’t dare sport anything that isn’t DIY’d, get in on this project ASAP. (via Brit + Co)
