I became a fan of Dermelect after trying their “ME” Anti-Aging Colored Nail Lacquers. I loved how the polish actually helped strengthen my nails while delivering great color AND that their nail products were toxin free. So, when Dermelect Cosmeceuticals let me know they now have color antiaging LIP treatments, I was pretty stoked to give them a try.
Dermelect has a couple products for lines around the mouth, and these new COLOR antiaging lip treatments are a natural progression from these treatments (which I’ve personally never tried). The two new color antiaging lip treatments are the 4-in-1 Smooth Lip Solution collection and the Smooth + Plump Lipstick collection. The company sent me one of each collection to try (all opinions are my own).
First up is the 4-in-1 Smooth Lip Solution
The formula includes Keratin Peptide, Hyaluronic Acid, Shea Butter and Vitamins A, C & E as well as Argan Oil, Jojoba Oil, Sunflower Seed Oil, Camellia Oil, Honeysuckle Extract, Grape Seed Extract and Green Tea Extract for ultra-hydration. (Formulas also contain dyes like Red 7 Lake and Red 33 Lake, in case sensitive users want to know. Check product box for full ingredient list or chat with a Dermelect rep.)
I applied the shade Iconic (nude beige) around 1:30 and checked it at 3:30.
The color was still on and still shiny and the pièce de ré·sis·tance was that none of the color feathered out into the little lines around my mouth. So you know they got the formula right so it stays put. It glides on and lips felt hydrated, so YES, it is kinda like 4 lip products in one – lipstick, stain, balm and gloss, just not like a GLOSS gloss for me.
The 4-IN-1 Smooth Lip Solution boasts a peptide-infused, hydrating formula that combines the gorgeous hue of a lipstick with the conditioning properties of an anti-aging balm, the staying power of a stain, and the ultra-high shine of a lip gloss. The launch collection is available in four shades: Obsessive (full power red); Iconic (nude beige) Intimate (sheer pink); and Audacious (warm brick red).
Next up is the Smooth + Plump Lipstick
Rebelle (rich fuchsia) is a great bold bright color for Spring.
Smooth + Plump lipsticks also come in Illicit (Chinese rouge), Adorned (pinkish coral); and Incognito (peachy rose).
You get an intense, satin finish, full, luminous coverage and enviable fuller lips dressed in a gorgeous hue. The fuschia color really made my lips P-O-P. A mirror check after several hours showed the fuschia was still stained on my lips – not glossy, but still there, with not a hint of drying out my lips like stains tend to do.
4-in-1 Smooth Lip Solution is $20.00 and Smooth + Plump Lipstick is $28.00. Both are available this month on www.dermelect.com. Dermelect also has skin solutions and specializes in innovative, targeted treatments.
