While I love all things cosmetics, I really don’t care too much for lip plumpers. Generally, they’re uncomfortable and I have pretty full lips to begin with so I usually just do away with them. I’ve definitely tried my fair share (Buxom, Soap and Glory, Too Faced are all coming to mind) and they usually just make me scunch my nose and want to wipe it off.
However, I was really excited to try these lip plumpers from EnvyDerm. What makes the different? The plump AND condition the lips. I like this idea!
Conditioning ingredients: Jojoba, argan, pomegranate seed, avocado oil. acai berry, green tea, grape seed, goji berry, algae extract. And lastly, vitamin A, C, and E.
Plumping ingredients: Menthol, cinnamon, spearmint, wintergreen oil – stimulate blood flow that causes lips to swell (instant effect). Marine collagen and hyaluronic acid – promote cell growth and rejuvenation (long-term effect).
When I first applied it I felt an immediate tingle. The sensation started to build up to more of a “biting” feeling. Not itchy at all, it sort of reminded me of what a glycolic peel feels like. On a scale of 1-10, it built up to an 8 within 5 minutes. The “biting” sensation starts to fade, but stays active at about a 6 for 45 minutes. That’s the longest I’ve ever had a lip plumper last on me! The gloss wears for 3-4 hours (which is typical for me). The texture is soft, it has some slip with a little tack. My lips don’t feel dry or damaged at all after use (I have noticed a little redness though). After reapplication, the sensation starts all over again!
