Want your lips to look fuller?

“Here’s a quick and easy DIY trick. Take a toothbrush that has hard bristles, dip it in cayenne pepper mixed with water, then brush your lips in a circular motion for a good two minutes. You will soon feel a tingling sensation - this means your lips are swelling up, giving you that plump Angelina Jolie pout.” — Najla
