There are lipstick products that simply add color to your lips. Others add treatment ingredients. Some are in unique packaging, or taste like fruit, or mint, birthday cake… or other flavors. The two products in our lip story are from GrandeLips and Physicians Formula. They add intense color and offer lip loving treatment benefits that make them MORE than just a “lippie” so you’ll love your lips more, too.
HydraPLUMP Liquid Lipstick
HydraPLUMP Liquid Lipstick by GrandeLips ($25 on Grandecosmetics.com) are not just beautifying with absolutely gorgeous, long-lasting, moistly matte high-pigment color.
What’s so amazing about these is that they won’t strip your lips of natural moisture like other longwears can. In fact, the formula is designed to actually identify dry, chapped areas of the lip so your lips look even better and feel better too!
HydraPLUMP won’t crack or flake and of course, they’ll make your lips plump-ier, too. aThe actives are hyaluronic acid and GrandeLips’ VolulipTM.
To test these, I tried four colors from a dozen: Red Delicious; Strawberry Rhubarb; Smoked Sherry: Deja Brew. As you can see from the swatches, they’re all quite different.
Whereas you can go neutral you can also go with lots of bold shades. No matter which ones you pick you will be delighted because they’re all beautiful.
The angled wand and the sleek gold tube with peek-a-boo insert that lets you find the color you want easily, and apply it accurately and they smell like cupcakes!
Most of all, and noteworthy, these lipsticks really do it all: beautify, treat your lips, plump, and smell amazing!
Healthy Lip Velvet Liquid Lipstick
Physicians Formula’s new Healthy Lip Velvet Liquid LIpstick ($7.95 on Physiciansformula.com) is new and innovative, and insanely affordable .
This liquid lipstick is not just available in 13 shades from neutral to bright and bold. The seem creamy, a luxurious skincare-infused formula with what Physicians Formula touts as a “decadent mousse-like texture.”
In my test, it was silky and hydrating, and the color slid on almost effortlessly in one stroke. It really lasted and didn’t settle into fine lines or cake on my lips or dry them out.
Secondly, the elegant, clear rectangular plastic case lets the color shine through, and the silver accents make it elegant.
More importantly, it’s the product inside that treats lips to Avocado Oil Vitamins A & E Hyaluronic Acid Anti -aging Peptides and a blend of Treatment Oils that improve your lips every time you slick it on.
I tried five of the 13 colors: Tu-Lip; Fight Free Red-Storative Effects; Vitamin Beet; Dose of Rose and Coral Minerals. As you can see from my swatches, they’re all vibrant, but very different.
Whereas my personal favorite is a deep red or pink, you’ll find colors to flatter every complexion.
