Seems that nowadays women crave full, luscious lips! Well, I remember growing up hating mine — the taunts, jokes (bubba lips, liver lips – you name it, I heard it!)… Well, look who’s laughing now!
One thing I do know (aside from curls) is lips! Thanks to Angelina Jolie, I’ve learned not to be ashamed but to actually love and play up my lovely feature — and embrace my plunger pucker! I decided to check out EnvyDerm Lip Volumizing and Conditioning Plumper ($28.00 5.5 ml; available in 10 colors), which promises up to 37% fuller, plumper, softer and rejuvenated lips within 45 minutes with no pain — so, we went to town!
Speaking to some friends — and a few skeptics who lust for a plump, enviable, kissable pout — I rolled up my sleeves and wanted to see what these bad boys promise to deliver!
EnvyDerm is a line of high-performance cosmetics coupled with the latest technology and organic high-performing botanicals. This line of lip plumping lipgloss won’t sting, irritate or burn (like many leading plumpers infused with cinnamon.)
Also, aside from the ten lipgloss shades, there is a EnvyDerm Intense Lip Renewal Therapy ($36.00 5ml; available in Clear only), which can be used every night at bedtime. Formulated with seven peptides to visibly reduce both deep and fine lines around your lips (lip wrinkles are not cool, if your lips wrinkle when you pucker you need this!)
It contains apple stems cells and oxygen therapy for deep cell renewal and rejuvenation. Contains: berries, green tea and natural butters, enhanced with Moroccan argan oil, vitamin A, E, B5 and C — you will wake up with fuller, smoother and more hydrated lips!
After the successful launch of EnvyDerm Eyelash Growth Serum — a gentle, clinically-tested, non-prescription formula that promotes natural eyelash growth — the brand welcomed Lip Volumizing and Conditioning Plumper and Intense Lip Renewal Therapy (to join Volume Mascara and Intense Liquid Eyeliner).
I enlisted a good pal of mine, Maggie, who tested out EnvyDerm in Je T’aime for about a week. Here’s what Maggie had to say:
“Pros: Nice, sheer color; doesn’t feel heavy, sticky or gooey. Tingly, minty – refreshing feel (tastes good!) Moisturizing and shimmery. Moist/plump feeling lasts even after you take it off.
Cons: Not long-lasting (didn’t use anything else, just this); would probably hold up better with liner.”
Well, Maggie hit the nail right on the head! In all fairness, I tested this out myself (had to) and my lips didn’t burn — and they sure did swell up!
Minty, no burning and definitely great-tasting, as Maggie described. Of course, with my lips, I had to remove this as my lips were getting bigger by the minute. I must say, unlike many lipglosses on the market today, EnvyDerm left my lips feeling soft.
EnvyDerm lip-plumping glosses restore youthful fullness (lips do thin out with age), are infused with fifteen organic moisturizing oils, including argan and jojoba oils, vitamins, berries and powerful extracts to soothe, soften, condition and prevent dryness; peptides and tripeptides to boost lip collagen for plumper, fuller lips.
