For those unfamiliar, the Cupid’s bow technique accentuates the V area in the center of your lips with microdroplets of filler. From what I gathered, cherry lips adds rounder definition to the Cupid’s bow area and echos the same shape on the lower lip, whereas Cupid’s bow lip filler has a pointier look only on the top lip à la Rihanna. No matter which route you go, Chang estimates the lip filler will cost you about $950 in the United States.
After the procedure, you can expect the same side effects as any other lip filler technique, such as swelling, soreness, and bruising, Chang says. Cherry lips will also last about six months, which is also the standard. However, they can last for as short as three months or as long as a year. “Because we use our lips a lot throughout the day — talking, chewing, smiling — lip filler tends to last shorter than filler in other parts of the face,” Chang explains.
In fact, it just occurred to me that I happened to get lip fillers done in a similar cherry formation last year. I’ve gotten my lips done a handful of times, but this was the first time I was completely satisfied with the results. Knowing a name for the look exists will come in handy next time I get injections. I know exactly what to ask for now, and you do, too.
