One of my latest skincare loves is Dermaglow. One of their early successes was the Dermaglow Lip Plumper and I am now officially a believer. I grabbed it on sale at our local Shoppers Drug Mart a couple weeks ago and wish I had grabbed two. Or five. I LOVE it. Dermaglow Lip Plumper is a moisturizing and healing lip balm with the added benefit of plumping. The website says peptides are among the key ingredients and that they help plump the surface of the skin. I won’t comment on the science of this but I can say my lips feel fuller, the lines around them less visible and no discernable tingling or discomfort. It has a silky texture that adds a slight sheen to lips but not a glossy or sticky finish. More like a Chapstick texture or finish. I find it quite healing and my lips are definitely softer since using the Dermaglow. Verdict: love love love – this will always have a place in my make up bag…

So now that your lips are lovely and youthfully full, how about a touch of sexy colour so you can pucker up, Valentine’s style? Clinique has released a whole new selection of Almost Lipsticks that I am in love with! Remember those? The sheer almost-there-your-lips-but-better lipstick that came out first? Now every line has a version but Clinique was the first. Gentle, without scent or taste, and a perfect sheer formula, almost every woman I know had Black Honey in their purse in the 90s! I love Almost Lipsticks because I can put them on without a mirror, and there is no thick cakey lipstick feel. Nor will it transfer to glasses or smudge because it is so sheer. I am going to review a bunch of them…stay tuned because they have a Red For Those Afraid of Red Lipstick shade. For realz. But for a perfectly pink Valentines pout, I am in LOVE with Flirty Honey. It is a hot pink in the tube but the perfect kissable pink on the lips. Layered with my Dermaglow it is just adorable!
