Physician’s Formula Plump Potion Needle-free Plumping Lipstick is designed to give you fuller, plumper looking lips without any irritating ingredients, or painful lip injections! Physician’s Formula does a fantastic job at providing cosmetics that are natural, and non-irritating, so I was very excited when I received this product. How often do you wish your lips had a little more oomph to them, or better shape? I am personally a huge fan of plumping lip products, and have tried almost everything on the market. Some of them provided results, with some hugely embarrassing side-effects (hello rash around the mouth!). Did Physician’s Formula manage to provide a plumping lipstick with actual results and no irritating side-effects?
As always with Physician’s Formula, the packaging on this lipstick is very nice. The lipstick itself has a thick, sturdy case, and a swatch of the color takes up the bottom third of the actual lipstick.
Sunkissed Potion is a gorgeous sparkling bronze shade, with reflects of copper, gold, and brown. It’s the perfect shade to wake up your face with a glow, especially in the dead of winter. This color will also be universally flattering to all skin tones and complexions since it is so neutral. This would be the perfect lipstick shade to balance out more colorful eyeshadow looks, especially green’s.
The color is also build-able, which makes it wonderful for choosing your coverage. If you’d like very pigmented lips, you will get perfect pigment out of this lipstick. If you’d rather go with a softer look, you can see there is a sheer quality to the shade in the above swatch on my hand.
So how does this lipstick work in plumping your lips and giving them shape? There are three main secret weapons in this lipstick that give it it’s power:
- Dehydrated Hyaluronic Acid Microspheres, which immediately smooth the lip surface and and rehydrate the skin on your lips to keep moisture locked in.
- Instaplump PF, a Physician’s Formula exclusive blend of ingredients that provide a more colorful and voluptuous appearance to your lips.
- Active Tri-Peptide Blend, which is known to boost natural collagen production, helping your lips appear fuller, smoother, and more youthful over long-term use.
Upon applying this lipstick, I felt a very slight tingling sensation, but it was barely noticeable. Physician’s Formula claims results in just sixty-seconds, and I have to agree that the results were almost instantaneous. My lips looked way more defined, plumper, and smoother.
This lipstick greatly defined the cupid’s bow of my lips like you wouldn’t believe! I was very pleased how sculpted my lips looked, and how moisturized they felt, as well. Some lipsticks can be very drying, but this one felt almost like a lip balm on my lips. There was also no nasty taste or smell to this lipstick. In fact, the lipstick had a great scent to it that I couldn’t quite place…almost like chocolate!
Bottom Line: You most often see lip plumping products in gloss form, and not everyone cares for or wants to wear lip gloss. This lipstick is a fantastic drugstore option for getting optimal color to your lips, with the additional pleasant effects of smoother, bigger, more defined lips! You will most definitely find me in the drugstore aisle searching for additional shades of this product.
Physician’s Formula Plump Potion Needle-Free Plumping Lipstick is available at drugstores and major retailers nationwide. It is available in six different shades, and retails for around $10.
