WHETHER you’re a fan of fillers already or have only ever toyed with the idea, there’s no denying that lockdown has made it hard for those with an enhanced pout to keep up with their treatments.
While we’re waiting for the beauty industry to re-open, you’ll find us taking notes from this savvy makeup fan who swears a £2.99 oil is the secret to her plump pout.

Last month, TikTok user Brittany Miller shared her “favourite lip plumping hack” with her 48,000 followers.
In the viral video, Brittany poured a few drops of cinnamon oil into Vaseline’s new £3.95 Candyfloss-flavoured lip gloss which she picked up in Superdrug.
After giving it a through mix, the beauty fan then applied the lip gloss and was stunned by well it worked.
Unlike other lip-pumping products, Brittany said: “This doesn’t burn or sting or anything. Let the cinnamon oil do its thing for a few minutes.”

Showing off the results, Brittany zoomed in on her shiny full lips and said: “Okay – WOW.”
So how does it work? Well, cinnamon has been proven to stimulate circulation as compounds in the spice cause blood to rush to the surface of the skin.
But before you give it a go at home, it’s worth doing a quick patch test to see if you have an allergic reaction to cinnamon oil.
Unsurprisingly, Brittany’s video has racked up over 400,000 “likes” and fans said it’s BETTER than faffing around with fillers.
