I would be lying if I said that I haven’t thought about getting lip fillers. Fuller and bigger lips are splashed across our Instagram and facebook feeds on a daily basis.I think we can thank Kylie Jenner for this trend. I have to admit to being nervous with the thought of needles near my lips.
What if I didn’t like the results?
What if something went wrong?
Will it be painful?
Are just a few questions that I asked over and over again. When I heard Code Beautiful we’re launching a Lip intense plumper that gives you an instant boost, I knew I needed to get my hands on it.
I would be lying if I said I haven’t thought about getting lip fillers.
Code Lip – Lip Intense Plumper
Code lip is the lip plumping treatment I had been waiting for. It is infused with the best lip – plumping ingredients, that the more often you apply it, the better the results. If you are inpatient like me, you will rejoice at the instant boost, plumpness and moisture. Code Lip has a beautiful soft nude rose tone to it, so you can either wear it on it’s own or with your favourite lipstick.
How it works
The magic ingredient in Code Lip is Hilurlip, containing a blend of lip treats such Hyalurinic acid, Tripeptide -1 and Dimethicone. This exclusive combinationation helps to redefine the natural contours of the lips and create a more youthful, sculpted look. When the Sodium Hyaluronate comes into contact with the skins natural moisture they swell up to create a plumping effect.
Code lip also contains coconut oil, sweet almond oil and castor oil with a really addictive minty tingle sensations. ( Not the intense burning sensations of some products of the past!)
Never underestimate the power of a good lip liner.
I apply Code Soft Smooth Lip Liner in the soft nude blush shade to my lip line. This prevents your lip gloss or lipstick from bleeding…. which is never a good look. This clever self sharpening lip liner means you just simply twist the lid till it clicks and voila you have the perfect tip to glide onto your lips every time. This lip liner is infused with a natural peptide which stimulates collagen. It re- densities the connective tissue which provides a corrective and restrictive care for the lips, giving definition, volume, hydration and softness.
Once my Lips are outlined, I then take my signature red lipstick and apply it to my lips. I then apply the Lip Intense plumper over my lipstick. The scent of peppermint will awaken your senses upon opening. Instantly I can feel the tingle sensation across my lips boosting my pout. I have also worn this over a nude and a pink lipstick as it is very versatile.
As an avid fan of matte lipstick, I wasn’t sure I could handle the glossy texture feeling on my lips, but to my delight it does dry leaving my lips feeling super soft and moisturized rather than feeling glossy or sticky. You can also apply the intense Lip plumper before your lipstick. I have found this technique also works a charm on some of my favourite matte lipsticks that were too drying, as it works as a protective moisture barrier on my lips.
Code Lip promises to boost your lips beautifully and naturally over time, so I put it to the test. I have been applying it in the evenings on it’s own, while binging on a Netflix marathon or when I’m typing on my laptop. To my delight I have definitely begun to notice my lips feeling and looking more plumped than usual. I wouldn’t say the results are an overly dramatic replica of Kylie Jenner’s artificial pout, but much more of a soft plumpness to my lips; enough for people to ask what I was doing different.
