Luxury skincare brand Lubatti have released their latest skincare product in the form of Anti-age Wonderlip which has been specifically designed to help increase lip volume whilst reducing fine lines and wrinkles. I was sent a tube a few weeks ago and have been putting it through its paces thanks to the recent cold snap.
The tiny 10ml tube is filled with a deliciously-light, gently scented balm that promises to nourish lips whilst providing a plumped up pout with less of those pesky fine lines and lip wrinkles. First things first, it works… really, really well but not in the stinging, lip-irritating way that lip volumisers usually plump. This is a silicone-heavy lip primer that fills the furrows and smoothes the lip texture, creating the illusion of a prettier pout. That’s not to say that there are no long-term skincare benefits to help promote lip volume, but first and foremost – think of this as a non-drying lip primer.
And the term non-drying is key here, as most lip primers I’ve tried in the past leave my lips looking good but feeling tight. The Lubatti Anti-age Wonderlip* manages to prime without any unwanted side-effects. Except for one. A great, big dent in your wallet. Priced at £29, it’s a costly addition to your skincare routine but seeing as it offers a tangible difference – I have visions of this becoming a bit of a cult product among those who can afford such luxuries.
If you suffer from dry lips, I think you’ll probably still need the support of something a little more heavy duty on the moisturisation front and paired with a nightly application of Lanolips 101, this has become a bit of a dream team lip-combo. Not one that I can afford to sustain… but it’s very, very lovely while it lasts.
