Sara Happ Plump & Prime Lip Airbrush Treatment Review
Sara Happ’s lip care products get some seriously rave reviews from the we heart this team. Our editor-in-chief Stef has spoke of her love with the delicious array of The Lip Scrub multiple times. And Melissa had only good things to say about it too, as well as the One Luxe Lip Gloss.
But…to be honest, I’ve always been pretty hesitant to spend money on lip treatment products. I mean, a drugstore chapstick will only set you back a couple of bucks, and magazines have been telling us for years to just exfoliate our lips using a washcloth or toothbrush, and maybe a little Vaseline! Even though I’m a beauty blogger, when it comes to lip treatments, these have been ‘good enough’ for me for years… while I could never have enough color lip products (lip glosses and lipsticks). Lip treatments just weren’t a priority for me, when those cheap magazine lip hacks would do just fine.
But if I’m really honest with myself, those options really weren’t that great, and my lips felt just ‘okay’. Like many lip balm junkies, I’d gotten into the cycle of reapplying constantly throughout the day, and DIY lip exfoliation didn’t leave my lips feeling particularly great (even the soft toothbrushes on my lips left them feeling raw, not soft).
It was time for me to reconsider…Maybe a lip product only company like Sara Happ was the way to go after all.
Sara Happ founded her company on the simple idea that people didn’t need more lip products, they needed the right products. So she created a line of products that simply focused on one thing, and one thing only: your lips.
I received the Sara Happ Plump & Prime Lip Airbrush Treatment ($28) to test. It’s meant to be applied after exfoliating with Sara Happ’s The Lip Scrub (I’ve been using the Brown Sugar scrub and it’s AMAZING–not to mention, it smells good enough to eat!) Apply as many layers of Plump & Prime as you’d like to achieve the desired amount of plumpness! It can be worn on its own, or as a primer for lip color, to help extend the length of wear. And unlike most lip plumpers, there’s none of the burning or stinging.
How does this magical treatment work? Three special ingredients: Micro-Filling Spheres (which contain hyaluronic acid and Konjac, which plump and smooth); Maxi-Lip (peptides, which moisturize); and rose hip oil (which hydrates and soothes).
I was seriously amazed at how good my lips felt after using The Lip Scrub and the Plump & Prime Treatment. Once I got into the routine of using both products regularly, my lips felt smooth and soft and hydrated all day. I’m never going back to the toothbrush and Vaseline method again!
