City Beauty recently gifted me some product including three shades of City Lips paraben-free plumping lip gloss and one City Lips matte. I was very pleased by how good they felt on my lips and their wearability.
I’m in the habit of keeping something on my lips otherwise they feel dry. If I’m not wearing a lip color then I have a chap stick or Vaseline smoothed over them. However, I’ve replaced the Chap Stick with my new City Lips clear gloss and love it. In the morning you can drink coffee, even eat breakfast and it’s still on – for me this is a good thing.
Some of the benefits:
- Stimulates new collagen development with peptides that work alongside your current collagen production system for long-term plumping
- Provides instant fullness, definition, & hydration with long-lasting plumping benefits
- Diminishes and fades the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Works safely, painlessly and without irritation or numbness
- Available in 10 shimmer shades currently and 10 additional solid shade
I did try the City Lips matte and it’s my favorite (love a matte finish), but since I love reds I plan on getting the Plum and Scarlet. I’ll let you know how it goes. It’s been difficult finding a plum/wine lip color that wears well. Pink Taupe is lovely if you prefer a lighter color in the matte finish. Swiping the clear gloss over the matte for a hint of shine is really pretty too.
Lips need care, just like the rest of your face. Every morning and night my moisturizer is swiped over my lips to prevent unwanted lines around my mouth. I’m planning to keep them at bay for as long as possible. Next I smooth the clear hydrating, plumping gloss over my lips and just above my lip line. This ensures the best results.
I recommend starting with the clear lip gloss, as it’s the most versatile: all day and all night. However, if you love color with staying power, I would indulge in one of the beautiful matte colors. Choosing just one will be your biggest challenge.
Happy day and please let us know what you think!
