LipFusion Conditioning Stick SPF 15

LipFusion Conditioning Stick SPF 15

LipFusion always creates innovative lip plumping products. Their newest one is a tinted lip balm with the added benefit of SPF. 

The LipFusion Conditioning Stick SPF 15 ($22.00 USD) is a minty, moisturizing lip balm that claims to plump, hydrate, protect, and imparts a hint of tint. It is available in 5 shades:  

Berry (sheer plum)  

Bitten (sheer strawberry)  

Buff (sheer nude)  

Butterscotch (sheer mauve)  

Clear (transluscent)  

The description of the product is:   

This lightweight, delectable, luxurious lip essential is made with nourishing oils and creamy butters that provide the perfect level of comforting hydration, along with SPF 15. It works to soothe cracked or chapped lips without being sticky or tacky, and comes in a convenient “retractable bullet” format for on-the-go application. Doses of AmpliFat™ and marine collagen filling spheres help to increase lip fullness, immediately and over time. Paraben free and proven to increase water content of the skin by 6000% in four weeks, this high-payoff treatment suits all skin types. It is dermatologist tested and not tested on animals.  What I think: First, the metal bullet tube is one of the most chic lip balm package I have seen. I have the Bitten and Buff and both shades are soft and pretty. Unlike LipFusion’s glosses, you can’t really feel the plumping and it isn’t very noticeable to see. But  love the light moisture it gives and the SPF. Also, I have noticed that my lips are less dry than they were when I first began using the conditioning stick.     

You can purchase this at www.sephora.com.  Enjoy!

LipFusion Holiday 2009 Mini Lip Gloss Set

LipFusion Mini Lip Gloss Set

The LipFusion Holiday Mini Lip Gloss set is not only a fun gift, it’s an excellent way to plump lips to make them appear younger. I love the LipFusion glosses because you get plump without pain.   

The claim is:  The revolutionary patented LipFusion®  technology delivers active collagen into lip tissue painlessly and instantly. The patented LipFusion® delivery system dehydrates the collagen molecule into tiny microspheres that can absorb easily into lip tissue, then search for the body’s natural water to re-hydrate up to 50 times their size, creating a beautiful, full-out pout. Unlike other products in the marketplace that claim to enhance lips, LipFusion® does not contain menthol, caffeine, cinnamon or other irritants that only cause the lip mucous to temporarily swell.   

The LipFusion® Holiday Collection features six minis of LipFusion® Micro Collagen Lip Plump Color Shines.  The collection combines LipFusion’s® three newest shades Crave, Goddess and Boca Babe and three original and best sellers Clear, Bare and Blush.  This limited edition collection sells for $39.      

 Lip Fusion Holiday Mini Collection includes six sexy day-to-evening shades:  

 Crave: Flushed pink  

 Goddess: Decadent golden bronze  

 Boca Babe: Juicy tangerine  

 Clear: Subtle shine  

 Bare: Natural healthy nude  

 Blush: Subtle and luminescent baby pink   

For best results, simply apply an even layer of LipFusion® over the top and bottom lip and allow the formula to penetrate for 2-3 minutes. You’ll experience naturally luscious, full and kissable lips for up to 24 hours. For maximum plumping, combine with LipFusion® Lip Plumping Pencils, and use LipFusion® XL as an intensive nighttime treatment (which I use every night and LOVE).    

You can purchase the collection at Sephora, Ulta, Dillards, Beauty.com, Skinstore.com and HSN.com in the US and Sephora in Canada. Enjoy!

LipFusion XL Nighttime Lip Plumper

LipFusion XL
LipFusion XL

My lips are in pretty good shape for a 40-something. I don’t have lines around my lips yet, but they can always use more moisture and a little plump never hurt either! As we age, the moisture in our lips reduce and they get thinner and more susceptible to wrinkles. 

LipFusion XL ($50.00 USD) is a spearmint-flavored nighttime lip plumping therapy.  The idea is to put it on before bed and you will wake up to plump, firm, hydrated and sexy lips. It combines active collagen with hyaluronic acid. Instead of needing to inject this collagen, “Patented, dehydrated, hyaluronic acid-filling spheres™ have a remarkable, sponge-like absorbency that captures the body’s natural water, causing spheres to swell a dramatic 50 times larger for maximum hydration and a long-term plumping effect. Once LipFusion XL is applied, lips swell continually for hours to visibly “fill” lines, boost volume, and keep lips lusciously moist”, claims the Fusion Beauty website .

I really like this product and think it is worth the price.  I have been applying it every night for about a week and my lips have been looking great all day. Even my work friends have complimented my lip gloss and ask if I’m wearing a lip plumper. I haven’t been during the day, since there is no need to. My lips are plump and firm and look natural as well.

So if you need a little help in the lip area, go to Sephora or Ulta and try it out — it’s always good to try before you buy! You can also learn more about it at www.fusionbeauty.com.

Polish Your Look on New Year’s Eve With a New Lip Plumper

I was skeptical of lip plumpers for a long time. I have decent lips, why would I need to make them fat. Even worse is the fact that many lip plumpers contain irritants and make your lips sting. Ouch!

Now that they are more popular (and much less ouchier), I have been hearing very good things about some plumpers. One of the claims is that they smooth out fine lines in your lips and make your lips appear smoother.

So I began my research with the queen of all lip plumpers — LipFusion Lip Plumper ($38.00 USD). This lip plumping color shine is formulated with marine collagen micro-spheres that are absorbed by lips and then absorb moisture causing mild-swelling which gives lip a full, plump look. They say results can last for up to 48 hours. I don’t know about that but it did instantly plump and smooth my lips and didn’t sting at all. It left me with a little numbness, but it wasn’t unpleasant, and there are many shades to choose from. If you have $38.00 for lip gloss, I’ll be your friend! And try this gloss, it does live up to the hype!

Another great gloss is bareMinerals Buxom Big and Healthy Lip Polish ($18.00 USD). Sephora’s site states, “This mineral-infused polish imparts a luminous high shine with no sticky or tacky feeling. A deep infusion of antioxidant vitamins A and E help keep lips soft, smooth, and protected, while the tingly and cooling sensation reminds you that your lips are getting an immediate increase in fullness.” This does tingle but doesn’t sting (thank goodness). There are about eleven soft shades of this gloss and half the price of the LipFusion, its a pretty good buy.

But if you aren’t quite convinced about this lip plumping craze, try a drugstore brand.  A really good one is the Maybelline  Volume XL Seduction Lip Plumper ($8.99 USD). This one touts, “Make your lips up to 30% bigger with Maybelline Volume Seduction Lip Plumper. Feel a tingling effect as active amplifiers instantly plump lips for a visibly fuller pout. Available in 10 seductive shades. Not recommended for sensitive lips.” I guess my lips aren’t too sensitive, because it does tingle, but doesn’t sting me.   Definitely a good gloss for plumping beginners.

So have fun with your gloss on New Year’s Eve! Go ahead and try something new.
