In brief: Lip Swelling
Could be angioedema.
Could be cold sores? Could be irritation from whatever you are putting on your lips? You need to have this evaluated to determine the actual diagnosis to get the most appropriate treatment.. Definitely keep a diary of what happened for the 6-12 hours before the swelling started, what helped to decrease the swelling, and try to pinpoint a possible cause.

In brief: Angioedema
Is not too uncommon.
You should visit your physician for an evaluation to see if it is possibly something you are exposing yourself to that is causing it.
