Kylie Jenner lips might be ‘in style’, but unless you’re willing to go under the knife, or get injected, Transformulas Lip Volume is the product you need in your kit to a fuller and plumper lip look.
The ingredients in this small and handy tube work to increase the plumpness of the lips, as well as eliminate the appearance of wrinkles around the lips and define the lip line.
As soon as you apply the Lip Volume with the doe-foot applicator, you’ll immediately feel a tingle. Now, it’s nothing extreme but might take a couple of applications to get used to. There’s also a minty fresh, menthol type scent which is refreshing. The tingle stays around for a couple of minutes, but it’s something you’ll definitely get used to.
The formula is more like a gel rather than a gloss, which means it's a lot easier to wear, no tacky feeling here. And it's great to apply under lip colour as well.
The Transformulas product has incredibly hydration properties, which really helps hydrate your lips, which of course helps with the fuller appearance. In fact, there have been clinical studies which showed that if you use the products three times a day, after 30 days you'll see an increase in the volume of your lips. The women in the study said they could see a visible difference in their lips, with the look of lines being reduced, and lips looking more hydrated and plumper too.
The gel works firstly to hydrate the lips and give them a plumper look, and then the collagen in the formula over time helps to give your pout a boost, giving them a fuller look.[amazon box="B005G9Y22C"]

Preparation is key
The key to the perfect pout is prepping. Why not prep your look by applying the Lord and Berry’s Active Spa Balm or add a swipe of Transformulas Lip volume to hydrate and plump your lips.
Mattify your lips
Matte is the hot trend this season taking inspiration from Kylie Jenner’s eponymous lip kit range. Add that instant sexy look without drying out your lips buy applying the Lord and Berry matte crayon lipstick in Enchanted. What’s the best shade? The one you feel your best in of course. Go bold with a striking pink or add a hint of Tropicana to your look by going for a peach tone, then simply dab your favourite loose powder and voila.
Outline that pout
Outline your lips to prevent bleeding or movement. Go for a shade darker than your lipstick for a sultrier look or add a lighter toned liner to brighten the look.
Accentuate your lips
Add a touch of highlight to your cupids bow for the illusion of fuller lips. Try an iridescent shimmer stick or liquid shimmer to be able to really blend the look.
Angles are key

Red is your friend
Embrace a red lip for that siren look. Go bold with a crème colour, try a red matte lip that will stay in place all day, or keep it fresh by applying your favourite red lip liner all over for a more laid back look.
