Sarah Chapman Skinesis Lip Enhancer


This double-ended tube of lip goodness has most definitely made its wayinto our handbags. A dual-phase product, it’s basically two tubes of product, back-to-back. First up, a smoothing ‘lip filler’ packed with hyaluronic spheres, vitamin A glorying in the name of Neodermyl®: this is your plumping lip ‘base’, designed to work on volume over time.

Then the fun bit: a lovely, comfy balm which goes on clear and then magically adjusts to a flattering-for-you lip tone with a soft sheen. In years gone by we tried self-adjusting lipsticks which worked a bit like thisbut this goes beyond the mere cosmetic, delivering nourishing ingredients alongside that rosebud pout, including baobab and Abyssinian oils, cocoa and shea butters, blackcurrant and sweet almond oils and yet more ‘filling’spheres of goodness.

Does it work, longer term, to ‘de-age’ lips? Too soon to tell – but we’re really, really enjoying finding out.
