It feels like everyone’s always talking about Kylie Jenner’s perfect pout and whilst there are plenty of tutorials out there on how to overdraw your lips, there is another option! Don’t worry, I’m not encouraging anyone to go and have lip injections but instead use Lip Voltage The Powerhouse* by DreamWeave & Co.
This lip-plumping product claims to plump up the lips and leave them looking fuller for twenty four hours. I’ve recently been putting it to the test, so I thought I’d share my thoughts with you!
To use the product, you simply apply it like you would a lipgloss and then use your finger to rub a little over your cupids bow. You’ll then feel your lips start to tingle. This is apparently to circulate the blood flow to the lips and open the pores for a quicker penetration. I made the mistake of applying WAY too much the first time and had to remove it from my lips, as I couldn’t bear the tingling. Since then I have only been applying a thin layer and the tingling isn’t uncomfortable in the slightest.
I really thought this product would be a gimmick but I’m pleased to say that it definitely plumps up the lips and makes them look fuller! I wouldn’t say mine stayed that way for twenty four hours but when do makeup products ever live up to these claims? I also really love the glossy effect on the lips. Instead of applying it as a treatment as part of your skincare routine, you can use it as a lipgloss or apply it over a lipstick – the choice is yours. It has a really refreshing minty scent, though I wouldn’t recommend licking it off your lips because your tongue will not thank you for it!
Line Fill – A Spanish formulation that restores the loss of volume in the lips
Volulip – Extracts of Peptide Hydric Sphears and Hyaluronic synthesis formulation (oh god too many big words for me – basically it makes the lips look smoother and has anti-ageing properties)
Maxi Lip – Gives a 3D effect
NG Shea – Rebuilds and restores the lips while improving natural hydration
The product is not tested on animals.
Whilst I did find that the lip plumper gave me a fuller pout, I also noticed it was a little drying on the lips, so I’m not sure the NG Shea ingredient (a new grade of Shea Butter) worked for me. Having said this, the problem was resolved with my trusty Body Shop lip balm.
At £25 this lip plumping treatment isn’t cheap but if you’re after a Kylie Jenner-style pout, it might be worth the money. Whilst it’s definitely cheaper to overdraw your lips, there’s always a risk of overdoing it or them looking uneven. With the Lip Voltage The PowerHouse you can achieve the results you desire with minimal effort! I'm planning on doing a 'current every day makeup' post in the next couple of weeks, so you'll be able to see it in action.
