City Lips

The marketing for this product is very gimmicky and borders on dishonest but I tried it anyway because of the ingredients (hyaluronic acid, oligopeptides, etc) and it has been such a game changer for me. I have very dry, dehydrated lips with a lot of vertical lines and can never be without lip balm or else my lips look and feel horrible. I used only City Lips on my lips for about a month. It plumped my lips (not Kylie Jenner style, but subtly) and actually healed my lips. The dry parts gently peeled away after a couple days. I had read that it has a cumulative effect so the more you use it, the better the results and I found that to be very true. When I woke up after applying this at night on day 3, my lips looked so plump and filled out. It is very long lasting and my lips still feel moisturized and look plumper even when the product is gone. This has enabled me to use lipsticks that I wouldn't have worn before because of how they would accentuate the dryness of my lips. The ONLY thing I don't like about this product is that it is a gloss and because of that is sticky and shiny. If your lips touch anything, the stickiness/tackiness transfers. So because I have a baby that I'm kissing all the time, I can't wear this all day. I wish they would come out with a balm-type of formula. I think many people rate this product low because they are mislead by the product's marketing.

City Lips Advanced - Clear

I started using this as a result of a very unsettling string of events in which my MOTHER saw an ad on FACEBOOK and that actually prompted her to purchase one for each of us. The only way I can sleep at night is that she doesn’t use Instagram. Before confessing this to me she kept it in-house for a few weeks and when she noticed an impressive improvement in the condition of her lips (smoother, appeared a bit plumper) she gave me a tube. I’ve now purchased this several times and have one for bedside and one for my bag. Here’s the thing - in my opinion of course - what makes this so excellent is that it moisturizes the lips so phenomenally that it’s actually changed my life. I mean, I didn’t sell my apartment and travel the world or anything but my somewhat chronic lip chapping has not happened once since using this. Not one time. And it’s been over a year. This doesn’t have any of the burning cooling stinging sensations I associate with other products that make similar claims which is a huge plus for me because Im not a fan of that feeling and I suspect it’s all bells and whistles (because it is). The truth is that the skin on my lips is so improved that yes they appear plumper. Without a doubt. I’m a habitual bright-red lipstick wearer and for reasons I myself can’t explain I’ve for the most part stopped wearing lipstick altogether. This stuff just feels so good and looks good too. It isn’t too sticky it’s not greasy and it stays put FOR HOURS. it’s like a shield of moisture and shine. I’ve tried a good amount of high end lip products - Bite Agave lip mask, La Mer lip products, and several others that have been hyped over the years but this is the only one I’ve repurchased. I get that City Cosmetics admittedly has a slightly shady vibe, mainly because of all the other independent companies with products making too-good-to-be-true claims, but this is a truly quality lip product that does it all and does it well. No scent no sting and no testing on animals!
