Duck lips are so two years ago, but perfectly pouty lips never go out of style. This recipe for DIY Lip Plumper from The Beauty Place Blog uses cinnamon oil, available at natural food stores and co-ops, and clear lip gloss, making it an affordable alternative to designer (or dermatologist!) plumpers.
