The Laura Mercier Lip Plumper in Charmed and Rose Flush ($30 USD) are also part of the Laura Mercier Fall 2013 “Dar Spell” Collection. The lip plumper’s are designed to instantly plump your lips while also hydrating and moisturizing them for sexier looking and healthier feeling lips.
The Laura Mercier Lip Plumper’s are infused with ingredients that are designed to penetrate the skin, stimulate collagen and beneficially smooth the surface of your lips. When applying to the lips you will notice a refreshing and cooling effect that builds up over about a 20-minute time span and lasts for a few hours.
I currently own the shade Charmed and find it to be a nice sheer peachy pink with a sheen to it. Perfect when you’re going for a very natural look. I found it to glide on my lips easily and left them with a nice tingly sensation. What I really loved was how moisturized my lips felt and the formulation was completely sticky free. I had no sticky or tacky feeling left on my lips or the hand I swatched the plumper on, which amazed me. I personally like to layer this over a lipstick because my lips are very discolored in certain areas. Since it is so sheer the darker areas in my lips do not get hidden and I find it to look funny. I do however love to wear it layered over my lipsticks.
The below two photos are pictures of the lip plumper on my bare lips. Like I mentioned above, I have discolored lips so I prefer not to wear the lip plumper alone. The top photo is taken right after I added the lip plumper and the bottom photo is after waiting the 20 minutes. I do notice my lips to be slightly more plumped. I also notice that my lips look more smooth after 20 minutes.
The below two photos are pictures of the lip plumper over top of a lipstick. The top photo is taken right after I added the lip plumper and the bottom photo is after waiting the 20 minutes. This time I didn’t notice a plumping difference but I still notice my lips look a lot more smooth after 20 minutes. I feel like the lip plumper hides the fine lines and cracks in my lips, which is awesome!
Overall, I love the formulation of this Lip Plumper. I love that it is very moisturizing on the lips and does not leave a sticky or tacky feeling. Charmed is very sheer, so if you are not a fan or that, than I would choose a different color.
