The best description I could find of what LipFusion XL is supposed to do came from SkinStore's site: "LipFusion XL is a non-injectable lip volumizing therapy that combines two times the pure active collagen of LipFusion's original plumpers with hyaluronic acid (HA), in one high-performance topical nighttime treatment. It transforms the unique micro-injected collagen technology into the most advanced plumping power found in a lip treatment.
Designed to work in synergy with the body's natural water, lips get optimal lip enhancement from two intense naturally-occurring fillers in one powerful, pout-perfecting formulation: Patented dehydrated marine collagen-filling spheres™ penetrate skin's surface on contact, then seek out body's natural water, and rehydrate to instantly plump and smooth lips." The smell of the Lip Fusion reminds me of Juicy Fruit gum, which I find pleasant. My lips do tingle after application, but it's not a harsh sensation like some lip plumpers can have. At first I used it mainly as a gloss, but have now started using it at night. My lips do feel hydrated when I wake up and I have noticed more skin sloughing.
My main criticism of the mascara is that the brush is so honkin' big. I find it difficult to get inner corner lashes and have to be really careful with lower lashes to avoid smudges. It does apply smoothly with minimal clumps and wears well without smudging. I read some reviews that said the tube dried out quickly, but mine seems fine for now.
