I’ve never really fallen in love with a lip plumping product and stuck with it but I think the GrandeLIPS Hydrating Lip Plumper ($26.95 US) is going to change that for good. I am obsessed with these lip plumpers!
I’ve been noticing my lips have been looking thinner and much more lined, even when I’ve been so consistent with my lip exfoliation and balm. I’ve had these lip plumpers for a while and for whatever reason hadn’t tried them. Wow am I ever kicking myself because I feel like I’ve got new lips! These babies really work. My lips look much fuller and pillowy, and the lines smooth out beautifully.
The GrandLIPS formula features:
- Volulip – collagen boosting active that instantly improves lip volume, texture, and shape
- Portulaca Pilosa Extract – found in Volulip, it works to keep lips soft and hydrated
- Caffeine – helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Niacin (Vitamin B3) – offers anti-aging properties and improved elasticity
- Hyaluronic Acid – keeps lips hydrated, plump, and youthful
- Marine Peptides and Instaplump – provides moisturizing properties.
The formula has a light, sweet vanilla fragrance. The plumping action happens about 3-5 minutes after application and can last up to 24 hours. What I love about this formula is that is has a nice, light almost wet texture. There is absolutely no stickiness whatsoever. You can wear the product solo as a gloss (it has amazing shine) or wear it under, or over, lipstick. I carry the clear formula with me in my handbag at all times. What I like to do is apply it once I get in the car and head out some wear. Then it does it’s plumping and hydrating action while I’m travelling. Once I get to my destination I blot off the excess and apply my lip look of the day. For the coloured versions I love wearing them on their own or lightly applied over a coordinating lip liner or lipstick. The shades Sunset Orange and Hot Fuchsia are so perfect for spring and summer! They also leave a bit of a stain behind once they wear off.
Oh and of course the big question. Do they tingle? Burn? Make you run around the room screaming? Well I’m happy to report that there is only a slight tingle and an almost soothing feeling warmth. I stopped noticing it fairly quickly. It’s a very comfortable and pleasant lip plumper!
They come in click pen style packaging with a hygienic, easy to wipe clean, silicone tip applicator.
For best results you are meant to apply GrandeLIPS twice a day. I haven’t been remembering to use it that regularly but I’m excited to see if I start seeing some long term results by doing so.
