This YouTuber Swears By Wasabi To Plump Her Lips

The spice is right! Or is it...

The trend for having lips as lush and plump as a bouncy castle is huge (literally), mainly thanks to Lip Kit Queen Kylie Jenner. This beauty vlogger’s attempts to get a full pout using the spicy powers of wasabi might be taking things a bit too far, though.

Vlogger Farah Dhukai swears by the power of the green Japanese spice to give her lips a much-needed boost.

Farah shared a video of her washing the eye-wateringly hot pastes over her lips and since then, the vid has racked up an impressive five million plus views!


In the Instagram post Farah explains her bizarre technique with, “As you may have noticed, I have very wrinkly lips and its cold af in Toronto, so now they’re super dry too. Wrinkly + dry = worst combination ever. So.. this one trick is a great way to get plump lips that look like you’ve had fillers, they’ll be extremely soft, wrinkles will be filled in, they’ll have a natural pink color, and they’ll be so plump [people] will think you’ve had them done.”


In all honesty, Farah’s lips do look plump! But that’s probably because they are crying out with pain after being smothered in mountains of wasabi! We can only bear a tiny dot on even the biggest batch of sushi.

Will it give us lips like Kylie Jenner?

According to clever bod scientists, wasabi doesn’t actually make lips fuller. Instead it increases the flow of blood to the lip area, which helps to speed up the delivery of nutrients and oxygen. Thus creating a smoother pout, softer pout. Not bigger but definitely softer.

🐝NATURAL LIP FILLERS – get SOFT, PLUMP, FULL, lips without needles or sucking on cups or objects 😳🙄As you may have noticed, I have VERY wrinkly lips and its cold AF in Toronto so now theyre super dry too. Wrinkly + Dry = worst combination ever!! SOOO.. THIS one trick is a great way to get plump lips that look like youve had fillers – theyll be extremely soft, wrinkles will be filled in, theyll have a natural pink color, and theyll be so plump ppl will think youve had them done🙃 all you need is: ✅WASABI! – $4 for a tube at the grocery store or you can keep the leftovers from sushi dates 🍣 😛take a tiny amount and rub it all over your lips ⏰leave on for NO MORE THAN 1 minute wipe off with a damp cloth or baby wipe 💦moisturize IMMEDIATELY! I used my @farsalicare Rose Gold Elixir ✨- you can use whatever you prefer to moisturize your lips, the key is to make sure to moisturize! there you have ittttttt .. pillow soft lips! you can apply a lip color on top if youd like but i personally like how it looks with a plump natural pink color the plumpiness lasts a whole day for me – but everyone is different so results will vary from person to person. The wasabi does sting but it's less than your traditional lip plumper and the effects last longer 😗 👯don't forget to share this video with a friend who wants a lil plump job and help a sis outtttt and like this video 👍🏾 Disclaimer: As with any skin care regimen, always do a test patch first to see if your skin is allergic to any of the ingredients.

We’re wondering how this will help us on a date? The idea of deftly rubbing a big glob of bright green wasabi across our lips whilst gazing at a hot boy doesn’t really feel great. Also, surely it will burn the heck out of his lips when we go in for the kiss?
