I can’t get enough of red lip products because it can add an instant touch of glamour with just one product. Reds do a great job of accentuating the lips but if your lips are thin, you may be looking for ways to enhance your pout. And… with Valentine’s Day less than a week away, perfecting your pout may be an imminent goal :).
Or maybe pout perfection is your year-round mission. Whatever the case may be, let me introduce you to Fusion Beauty’s LipFusion Micro Collagen Lip Plump Colour Shine in Sexy. The name says it all, doesn’t it?
If pouty lips is your end goal, then you may have tried the various lip plumping products on the market. Having worked in the beauty industry for many years, I’ve tried quite a few of them. What I don’t like about lip plumping products typically, is the mechanism by which the formulas plump your lips – via irritation. Yes, that’s right! Some of these lip plumping products contain an ingredient which is meant to purposely create a mild irritation on your lips, thereby causing it to swell, or as the company will tell you – ‘plump’. If you’ve ever tried a lip plumping product that gives a bit of a tingly sensation, it is likely causing a mild reaction. But now with better technology (which is why I love science), there are much better alternative plumping ingredients out there. For example, LipFusion contains dehydrated marine collagen filling spheres. These little spheres become rehydrated by your lip’s natural water content, which then plump up, giving your lips the perfect pout.
My lips indeed looked fuller in just 3 minutes. The gloss is quite sheer so don’t expect an intensely pigmented wash of color. Rather, it has the subtlety suitable for daytime while still adding a nice hue of vibrancy on the lips. The price is a little steep at $41 a pop, but hey, it’s still a lot less than getting an actual lip injection. What are your thoughts, ladies? To plump or not to plump? Happy Friday!
