One of the best parts of having your lips augmented with Juvederm is getting to play with new lip products afterwards! But which products do the best job at enhancing your beautiful new pout? There are a few factors to consider when choosing lip products after your procedure.
Some people experience light bruising while their lips are healing. Luckily, it is a breeze to cover with makeup. After applying foundation and concealer to the lip area, apply a liquid lipstick over top. There are a couple reasons that liquid lipsticks are amazing for lips that are in the process of healing. First, they are highly pigmented so they will easily cover any discoloration you may have. Second, they apply with a soft brush so you don’t have to push on sensitive lips with a hard lipstick. Here are a few liquid lipsticks that we love:
Don’t let the name fool you; this is actually a beautiful creamy liquid lipstick. It has a great price point and comes in a variety of colors. They are all very highly pigmented and comfortable on the lips. We love the colors “Marvelous Mauve” and “Pink Souffle”.
Miss Kylie Jenner must have had her famously augmented pout in mind when she designed her new lipstick line. They apply smoothly and are very opaque. Each one comes with a matching lip liner which keeps the lipstick from budging all day. We think “Koko K”, “Posie K, and “Candy K” are the most versatile.
Juverderm injections may also make your lips feel a bit dry for the first couple of days, so having a great lip balm on hand is a great idea. Apply it on its own or underneath your lipstick! We like:
This lip balm is very moisturizing and smells delicious. Plus it has SPF 15 which is a great feature. Wearing SPF on your lips is always a good idea but it is especially important to protect them from the sun while they are healing. The treament comes tinted or untinted, and we love them both.
This is one decadent lip product! You can wear it as a hydrating overnight mask or throughout the day as a balm. It feels soothing on lips that are sensitive after Juverderm injections. Just like the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment, it comes in both clear and tinted.
Certain shades and finishes of lip products will further enhance the poutiness of your new pucker. Lipsticks that are lighter in color will make your lips look fuller, and darker colors will minimize them. A shiny or shimmery gloss will reflect light and make lips look even plumper. Some of our favorites are:
This cult favorite comes in a plethora of colors, but our favorites are among the soft pinks. “Angel”, “Nymphette”, and “Pink Lemonade” are great options. The formula is ultra shiny, non-sticky, and feels luxurious on the lips.
LipSense is a product in its own category. It is somewhere in between a lip stain and a liquid lipstick. It is as highly pigmented as a liquid lipstick but is as long lasting as a stain. It comes with a shea butter gloss that layers overtop. The gloss seals in the color beneath, keeps your lips feeling moisturized, and enhances your lips with shine. It comes in a wide range of wearable shades, and one of our favorites is “Rose Ice”.
Thanks to Juvederm, you no longer need to rely on makeup to achieve a plump-looking pout. However, makeup can still work its magic as it helps to heal, conceal, and enhance your beautiful lips.
