Finally for those of us NOT born with full Angelina Jolie lips, there is help without expensive fillers or severe irritation. I remember several years back when Du Wop came out with their first lip plumper. My lips burned like hell-fire and were red and irritated for a few days. I don’t want full lips THAT badly!
Flash forward a few years and Secret Agent Beauty has a wonderful solution–plumping lip gloss in levels! Kind of like Thai food, Secret Agent has three levels of plump. All of the glosses have peppermint and menthol oil in them but with varying intensity 1+ 2++ or 3+++. There are three choices:
Diamond Girl Detective Level 1 ($16) – Diamond Girl is a crystal clear sheer, sweet agent. Her clear solution is a mere decoy for her luscious lip plumping power. For beauty agents looking for just a slight boost to their pout, look no further than Diamond Girl Detective Level 1 plumping action whose top performing ingredients enrich lip with pure hydration. This is perfect to use over your favorite lipstick or gloss to pump up the volume!
Top Secret Ingredients-shhh……
Pure Aloe Vera Extract – to cool, sooth and heal lips. Packed with amino acids, Vitamins A, C, F, B, niacin and Vitamin B12 that hydrate and restore moisture.
Sacha Inchi Oil (+) – rich in Omegas 3, 6, & 9 as well as iodine, Vitamin A & E. These fatty acids help reduce dry flaky skin by preventing dehydration of delicate lip cells leaving lips looking plumper and more youthful.
Peppermint Oil Extract & Menthol (+) – are soothing all natural muscle relaxants that leave lips luscious. Their deep penetrating properties impart a tingling sensation the swells lips allowing for a plumper pucker.
Pretty Pink Provocateur Level 2– is a deep-cover agent looking to spice things up with a dash of color and a plumped pout. Stepping things up a notch, this agent is a level 2 plumper that increases the look of lips while providing a pure pink hue to complement any succulent smooch. Pretty Pink Provocateur upped the level of Sacha Inchi Oil and Peppermint Oil Extract & Menthol to ++.
Foreign Intelligence Flirt Level 3 – watch out for this one–she’s a saucy minx. Meet Foreign Intelligence Flirt, an agent well versed in espionage and the art of sexy lips. Packed with personality, this flirt know how to plump lips to their fullest potential. Foreign Intelligence Flirt combines the deadliest secret ingredients into a Level 3 lip plumper that will drive men insane. The deep berry shade is sensual.
All the glosses are smooth and non-sticky. Even the plumping action of level 3 is doable and not a deal breaker. There is not a lot of pigment, I would say they are just a bit more than a tint. No trout pout here beauties, just a slight plumpness that feels quite pleasant!
Bottom Line: I’m actually quite thrilled that these work for my thin upper lip without pain or irritation. They are a little pricey at $16 for 5ml but it’s much cheaper than lip injections!
