It gives a nice and reflective appearance but the plumping effect is not that visible.
A plump and voluptuous pout has been always in. Especially the past couple of years that a lot of celebrities have endorsed this look in a variety of ways (wink-wink). Having natural voluptuous lips is desired by the majority of the ladies out there at the moment and we’re here to discuss a product that claims to do just that.
Before I continue with my review, I have to add that giving a natural plump to your lips takes a lot of time, effort, dedication and consistency. It might sound like a motivational speech but I am not joking. The results won’t be extreme if you go the natural way, I have to be honest. Don’t expect to look like Kylie Jenner going the au naturale route!
The beauty of individuality is something that we have to embrace as people. I always like to enhance one’s natural features and not alter them as a makeup artist. Embrace what nature has given you no matter the size of your lips! Everyone is different and the beauty lies there. This does not mean that I am against cosmetic procedures as long as there is an excessive amount of work done on the face and body. It is easy to go overboard with these kind of things and look unnatural, except again if this is the look that you are going for! This product claims that it enhances lips instantly and offers long term results.
At first using it, I would not say that I saw a huge difference. Generally, I’ve had a bad experience with lip plumpers in the past and the unbearable burning sensation to achieve a fuller pout for a little time so I’m always hesitant with these types of products.
What I like about this particular product is that it hydrates the lips, plus it gives a glossy and fresh feeling. It feels natural for a lip plumper and the tingling sensation is bearable. It has chilli extract so make sure that you are not allergic to it before applying! Allergy will give you fuller lips in no time but it might send you to the nearest hospital as well; We do not want that! If you want even better results, exfoliate your lips gently prior to the application. This will help with the circulation of the blood on your lips and it will instantly give volume and colour. By making this a daily habit it will eventually give you fuller looking lips, but again not far from what you currently have.
I would say for better looking results, apply a nude lip liner at first and apply this product on top. It will still work and give you this nice reflectivity. Your lips will look a lot more enhanced and full when adding a lip liner. You can try any lip liner of your choice and Rodial’s lip liners as well, they perform excellent and are long lasting! As the formula of the lip plumper itself is non-sticky and long lasting I find myself using it instead of my lip balm quite often because it keeps my lips hydrated. It is quite expensive to replace it with your regular lip balm but you can find it on sale quite often on Rodial’s site if you are curious to try it out.
If you are looking for an instant full pout this product might not work for you as it works but it does not do any wonders. Let’s be real, a lip plumper cannot give you the results of lip injections. Good hydration and regular exfoliation though, help a lot with the fuller appearance of your lips!
The only thing that truly bothers me with this product is the packaging. I do not enjoy the pen as it is not easy to dispense the product easily on my lips. It is not a holygrail product but it smells good, it fills the lines on your lips and has a long lasting hydration effect. As I have said before, you can always try it before you buy it.
What’s your holygrail lip plumper? We would definitely like to know in the comments below!
When it comes to lip plumping, always use products that have ingredients which increase blood circulation, like cinnamon, chilli or cayenne pepper.
