This is the kind of product that should be a staple in every woman’s make up bag. Containing lightly tingling lip plumping ingredients, the gloss is also high shine and can be worn alone or over lipstick. My lips are naturally rather creased so anything that gives a smoothing effect like this, particularly when I’m wearing lipstick that seems to cling to every crevice, is ideal. The formula contains Atelocollagen that helps to increase the natural lip collagen and is packed with nourishing ingredients such as jojoba and avocado oil. There’s none of that familiar (and uncomfortable) stinging that used to come with ‘lip plumpers’; instead a vanilla and cinnamon scent. Because it has many moisturising components, it’s an easy one to incorporate into your beauty routine to get your lips feeling comfortable and looking full and smooth. My tip would be to use it over a lip ink type product that stain the lips as you won’t get the same dispersal as you might using it over a creamy lipstick.
