What is Volulip™?

Volulip is a cosmetics ingredient by Sederma that claims to plump lips using “hyaluronic acid synthesis”. How this works is quite complex – however the end result is an increase in hydration, volume, and softness that altogether make the lips look fuller.

How should I use this Avon lip plumper?

What’s great about this particular lip plumper is that it provides a distinct finish that can stand on its own. In fact, minimal makeup wearers might even choose to apply this lip plumper in place of other lip color such as lipstick or lip gloss. It can also be combined with other lipsticks and lip gloss products for a plump, glossy finish.

For best results, make sure to exfoliate the lips first, and then start your makeup routine with the Glimmer Lip Plumper. It’s important to give the plumping agent time to do it’s thing while you complete the rest of your makeup look.

After you’re done with the rest of your face, you can apply a second coat of the plumper and apply your lipstick or lip gloss as needed.
