FILLER LIP TREATMENT

The hyaluronic acid–based lip filler that plumps and primes your pout.

DISCOVERED

The lips are of utmost importance (as we all know, it’s the first kiss that seals the deal), but according to New York–based dermatologist Dr. Macrene Alexiades, they’re the most neglected part of the face. And although Macrene believes that injectable fillers can plump up your pout, in most cases she finds they look unnatural. And when the derm sees a gap in the market, she makes it her business to fill it (no pun intended).

Enter: Macrene’s latest beauty essential, the 37 Actives High Performance Anti-Aging and Filler Lip Treatment, a pout plumper formulated with more than 20 anti-aging ingredients, including a high dose of hyaluronic acid and peptides to soften the appearance of wrinkles. The fast-acting (Macrene says clients have seen results after two weeks), nonsticky, translucent formula glides onto the lips via a rollerball applicator, leaving a smooth surface on which to layer your lipstick. Consider it the precursor to a perfect kiss.  

TESTED

“It’s a great addition to your lip regimen; I can certainly feel the hyaluronic acid when applied on the lips. I like to use it at night in conjunction with a lip balm.”—Carola Gonzalez, makeup artist

“It makes lips feel smooth, moisturized, and ready for lipstick. The lines around the area are definitely softer and my lips feel fuller.”—Lisa Storey, makeup artist
