I’ve always had a fascination with lip plumpers. I was 12 or 13 when the first ones came out, and I dutifully trekked to Harvey Nichols to buy the fiery gloss which was filled with cinnamon and ginger and left lips feeling scorched rather than plumped. Thankfully, Transformulas has, for a better term transformed those old-school plumbers with their LipVolume.
Packaged in a sleek silver tube, LipVolume is designed to plumps both the lips and the skin around them, meaning that you enjoy a more defined look as well as reduced fine lines thanks to the added hydration. You can pick from Ice Cold Peppermint (what I have) or Chocolate (if you fancy a little colour) and to achieve best results, Transformulas recommend that you apply 3 times a day for 30 days.
Obviously you won’t wakeup with an Angelina Jolie esque pout after using LipVolume, but I find it just makes my lips look better. I love the fresh, minty taste, and it feels almost balmy. There is no stickiness or heaviness, and, most importantly, it doesn’t burn like those plumpers of old!
LipVolume costs £29.95 and is available here.
