Lip fillers are all the rage, but most of us are looking for a cheap and needle-free way to get fuller lips. Cinnamon oil has emerged as a natural lip plumper, thanks to some investigative work by TikTokers. Express.co.uk reveals whether cinnamon oil really plumps your lips.
Angelina Jolie, Julia Roberts and the entire Kardashian family are just a few examples of celebs with full lips, and we all want to copy them.
There are hundreds of expensive lip plumping products on the market, but very few of them give us the results we’re looking for.
Apparently, cinnamon oil doubles the size of your lips – and it only costs about £2 per pot.

Does cinnamon oil really plump your lips?
Cinnamon oil does have a plumping effect on the lips, but this is because it actually irritates your lips.
The irritation causes blood to rush to the surface of your lips, which makes them look inflamed or puffy.
As long as you aren’t allergic to cinnamon oil, this should be safe to do and slight tingling is normal.
Before applying cinnamon oil to your lips, do a patch test on your hand to check for signs of burning or itchiness.
Before pouring cinnamon oil into your favourite lipgloss, try making a scrub.
Mix some cinnamon oil with a cheap sugar scrub and use it on your lips.
See if you like the effect before committing to making a cinnamon oil lip gloss with a more expensive product.
Make sure you only use up to five drops of the oil in a product – any more could be dangerous.
