People pay big bucks to plump up their lips à la Angelina Jolie – full lips haven’t gone out of style as far as I’m concerned and I think most women I know are always looking for ways to give their lips a boost.

Fusion Beauty makes a variety of products for plumping lips, and their LipFusion XXL Advanced Lip-Plumping Therapy is some next-level gloss compared to their well-known LipFusion XL product.

According to their website, the product contains two additional ingredients – InstaPlump™ and Volulip™. The description goes on to say “InstaPlump™ and Volulip™’s patented technologies provide moisturizing and anti-aging effects, as well as creating even more noticeable lip volume. LipFusion XXL™ Can be used as an alternative to doctor administered injections or in conjunction, to prolong and extend the plumping benefits.” Given that women are willing to fork over a lot of money for lip injections, the $59.00 cost is not too bad if you’re seriously looking for a cheaper, alternative solution.

It goes on just like a regular gloss with the doe foot applicator, and I find just putting on a single layer works well for feeling the effects. After a few minutes you can really start to feel a tingling sensation on your lips. Fusion recommends using it like you would a usual product in your beauty regimen – use it morning and night on clean, dry lips after you cleanse, tone and moisturize and brush teeth. It can also be used with other lip products.

Overall, this product is a far less invasive alternative to lip injections, and is easier on the wallet – you can get it at Murale/Shoppers Drug Mart for $59.00 (think of the Optimum points!).
