When Envy Derm’s Plumping Lip Gloss in Je T’aime arrived in the mail for me to test, I was initially more impressed with what it didn’t have than what it did.
To start, the product is vegan and cruelty-free. It is free of parabens and sulfates if those ingredients worry you. It is also gluten-free, which may sound unusual but more and more I am being asked for lip recommendations that are gluten-free. Plus, the packaging is 100% recycled.
Pretty impressive for a lippie that claims to temporarily add volume without burning or stinging.
Why not put it to the test?
I swiped on a generous amount and waited.
Right away I liked that the formula was somewhat sheer – a truly opaque high-shimmer red gloss really wouldn’t have been my thing – and that it felt comfortable on my lips, perhaps due to its custom combo of organic oils and vitamins. The gloss contains Vitamin C, Jojoba, Avocado Oil, Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin A, Vitamin K and more.
And true to form, the plumping gloss does indeed plump!
