It first started with sucking on a shot glass. I saw videos and pictures all over Facebook of people who put their lips into a shot glass and sucked for about 2 minutes straight to "plump" their lips. There was actually a news article about one girl who tried this and well, it ended very badly. Then I started seeing companies make tools to help you do this! Candy Lipz has a variety of apple shaped tools, Fullips has made one (along with their signature "'neck tape"), and Juva Lips offers a battery operated lip plumper/sucker. These companies also claim that their tools can provide a "semi-permanent" effect, and are a great substitute if you don't want to go the permanent route of lip injections. I've seen some gnarly pics of people who've tried these. Can these tools really provide a "semi-permanent" effect? And how much damage to the lips do these tools cause?
