Lip Fusion is one of those products that completely went over my head as soon as I read it was a lip plumper. I have naturally full lips anyway and have once tried DuWop’s Lip Venom, which felt like boric acid.
Nevertheless, I heard that Lip Fusion is very moisturising – what the hell, I found it for £15 (normally £26) so I gave it a go. The shade is SUN:
Micro-Injected Collagen – LipFusion® Color Shine
The next generation of lip plumpers has arrived. LipFusion is moisturizing treatment gloss infused with revolutionary technology to plump lips instantly – no kidding.
How it works: Tiny, dehydrated, marine collagen microspheres are instantly absorbed by the lips, and seek out the body’s natural moisture. As soon as the spheres become re-hydrated, they plump and hold onto the moisture they’ve collected, creating a mild “swelling” of the lip tissue. The result is fuller, smoother, perfectly plumped lips in seconds. Results can last for up to 48 hours.
£26 is a lot for a lipgloss. It would have to be something extremely stunning in colour or texture or as a treatment.
I don’t like the packaging. I think it’s ugly and looks like something from Wet and Wild.
Anyway so I try this out – the colour itself, SUN is a warm orangey coral shade. It sounded like my kind of colour but it’s sheer so it barely shows up. That’s the first disappointment – the colour is nothing special.
Next is the plumping. I applied the gloss liberally and waited – I expected a bit of a tingle but there was none. Nevertheless I waited some time before asking people around me if there was any change. Nope they said. I pouted and pouted but it did nothing for me, in terms of plumping. Which is fine, since I don’t need it, but nevertheless, that is that its SUPPOSED to do.
Next thing was the moisturising factor. It definately felt better than your average gloss that just sits on the surface of your lips. It’s not tacky or sticky and my lips feel less dry now, even after the colour has worn off.
So this product is good and bad in its own ways. As a lip plumper, I don’t see it. As a treatments it’s not bad, but I would never, ever pay full price for one of these. It’s definately not unique or effective enough to be charging nearly £30.
