I was sent the SkinMedica TNS Lip Plump System to review and you may remember seeing it in my Teal Temptation Lips video. Even though I have thick full lips, I still like to use lip plumpers on many occasions to make my lips all plump and juicy, which then irons out the lip wrinkles, prior to lipstick application.
SkinMedica TNS Lip Plump System is a 2 step process :-
Step 1 : TNS Lip Renewal – this a lovely light moisturising lip cream which leaves a non-sticky film behind and helps condition my lips
Step 2 : TNS Lip Plumper – this is a clear gel which has a slight chemical smell (which I can’t quite put my finger on where I know it) and it feels slightly tingly for around 60 seconds as the plumping effect takes place. The tingling sensation on my lips reminds me of the times when I add too much chilli oil to my noodles. (oooh, noodles!!!)
Have a look at the photos of my lips before and after using SkinMedica TNS Lip Plump System
Normal : My lips look dry and cracked
After Step 1 : My lips look smoother and has more even colour (but the lighting is slightly different)
After Step 2 : My lips look juicer and the lines are less pronounced and slightly more redness (I am guessing that there is some ingredient there which plumps up the lips because it goes all tingly and attracts more blood flow)
The plumping effect isn’t long-lasting on me and wears off after an hour. As I already have rather full lips, it isn’t a must-have for me but I can see how it would be perfect for the ladies who are not so blessed in the big lips department.
