DERMAQUEST C-Lipoic Lip Enhancer. Why not try saying that three times fast? If your pucker's in need of a little TLC, this gloss will totally help you out. I tend to not only be afraid of lip plumpers, but to be totally skeptical of them. In this beauty chick's opinion, it is quite rare find one that actually lives up to the hype! But I think I may have to eat my words, because this one is seriously unbelievable.
The packaging is a bit on the clinical side, which to me said, "I work! Try me!" So as I slicked it on, I had very high hopes. Right from the get-go, I was enthralled and entranced. The clear, high-shine formula made my lips look and feel super-glossy, and they really caught the light beautifully. Meanwhile, the alpha lipoic acid and the palmitoyl oligopeptide were making them feel quite moisturized while adding tons of volume. I'm serious -- I looked like Angelina Jolie within a matter of minutes, and I have no top lip! Fun features include jojoba seed oil, coffee seed oil and camphor. They do everything from moisturizing and softening to soothing and smoothing the lips.
My favorite feature of this gloss is that it doesn't sting upon application. I am not one of those gals who likes that stingy feeling with lip plumpers, so the slight tingly sensation was absolutely perfect. Unfortunately, it's a bit pricey at $48 on SkinElite -- but if you're looking for that super-sexy pout, this is the way to get it.
