I honestly could stop there, and let that be my review, but I’ll go on. I’ve heard about these Lip Serums* for a while and have been aching to try them. Every single person I’ve seen wearing them looks gorgeous: the colors always seem to compliment their skin and their lips look plump and glossy. Literally the only problem with these is that because every shade seems to adapt perfectly to the wearer, each shade looks different depending on the person and their natural lipcolor!
After scouring the internet and social media, I chose the shade Liv. It looks hot pink in the tube, but much less volatile on the wearer – simply fresh. My initial application, I noticed a soft vanilla scent (personally, I’m a fan). I swiped on the formula with the doe foot applicator and was left with a pretty pink wash of color. The formula itself is really hydrating and I swear I could feel my lips plump up immediately – sans the burning sensation ‘plumping glosses’ normally have. These are made with vegetable collagen and plant sterols to naturally plump the lips and antioxidants to improve the cells over time.
Just to show the versatility of the shade I got, the above photo on the left is just a light swipe of the lip serum by itself, and the photo on the right is with a berry lip liner. The color itself is really buildable too…add a little more, and now you’re a shade darker and more vibrant. I can go hours without needing another application. Even after it wears off from talking, eating, etc. – my lips feel nicely hydrated.
I literally ALWAYS have one of these in my bag, but if we are being totally honest…it’s usually more, like two or three! I absolutely love them!
