City Lips Review

Collagen Peptide Lip Plumping Treatment


I have seen this brand pop up a lot lately on various beauty bloggers pages, Instagram, etc. and was super excited to try! 

I'll start off by saying I'm not a big fan of lip plumpers. They burn, have no color payoff, and make my lips all red. Just personally not my thing.

I wanted to try this for a solid week before reviewing. 

My thoughts: 

I first applied the clear treatment and let it sit for about 5 min. It tingled just a tiny bit, but nothing that really bothered me. I then applied the sheer pale pink color "Los Angelips" over this. 

I kid you not - a few minutes later I looked like I had lip injections. They were seriously huge. They were a tiny bit numb too, so maybe they felt bigger from that as well. 

Bottom line - this stuff seriously works if you are in the market for a lip plumper. I've tried a few others and this seemed to have the most drastic results.

I'm still not a lip plumping fan - I just don't like my lips to tingle or burn in the slightest. The color was very sheer and did make my lips a bit red. I tried layering it with lipstick and liked it MUCH better. I did the clear treatment, a nude lipstick, and then Los Angelips over that. Really liked that look and still felt nice and plumped.
