And overall it isn't TOO shabby:
Here is another shot that was taken a couple months ago after one of my "quick, get ready" normal mornings (I want you to notice the eyelashes in this one):
So I got to review some lip plumping gloss, and some volumizing mascara from EnvyDerm -- they are free of all the bad stuff you really want to avoid in all your makeup and personal care products. Which is a big score for me. I will tell you about the products in a moment but want to show you the pictures.
Please realize I am HORRIBLE at selfies so these pictures below have poor lighting, poor angles, etc. but you can see my eyelashes and my lips, how much longer, fuller the lashes are, and how plumper the lips are. And this is just one coat of mascara, for who has the time to do more than one oat?
Notice the length and thickness of my mascara.... and the fullness of my lips. Look at the picture above again and see how thin my upper lip is with my gummy smile. Yuck. I am self conscious and always hated that I didn't have a full upper lip. But nonetheless, this is a before and after review so I have to be truthful in it.
You can see below how much thicker and fuller my upper lip is!
So, now that you saw how well the products work, let me tell you a bit more about them.
The Lip Volumizing and Conditioning Plumper. You get up to 37% fuller plumped lips instantly, with nice color that seems to last, and without parabens, synthetic fragrances, petrochemicals, sulfates, phthalates, GMOs, triclosan or mineral oils. They are cruelty free and also made in the USA.
The key to the lip plumper is the peptides and tripeptides that boosts the collagen for fuller lips. It also contains 13 organic moisturizing oils and vitamins for softer lips as well.
They state that if you use this for 4 weeks your lips will be fuller permanently. I have not used it for 4 weeks yet (about 2 weeks so far), so we will see :)
There are quite a few beautiful colors to choose from and it comes in a sturdy lip gloss tube that is long and square, instead of round.
Volumizing Mascara. This stuff obviously works because my lashes with just one coat look fabulous compared to my other brand (which is Tarte Cosmetics Lights Camera Lashes). If I had to choose one makeup piece that I can't live without it would be mascara. I have very pale blonde lashes and feel naked without mascara on.
This stuff is infused with Moroccan Argan oil, vitamins, and minerals that conditions and moisturizes lashes. The color is bold and doesn't take forever to dry (in case you want to do a second coat.) It wears well and still is on at the end of the day.
It is formulated without prostaglandin, parabens, synthetic fragrances, sulfates, petrochemicals, phthalates, GMOs, triclosan, mineral oils or animal products.
This clump-free mascara increases lash volume, definition and curl, while over time it promotes thicker and longer lashes (permanently!) It does this with a hydroplat specialized peptide that is combined with keratin to stimulate keratin production along the lash line for new hair stimulation. It also repairs damaged lashes.
It includes an hourglass shape wand and brush that lifts and separates the lashes.
