This is my second Sofina Aube Couture product (first one being the Designer Highlight). I had such high hopes because it claims to plump the lines on the lips with hyaluronic acid, and the price is the same as a Dior Addict Gloss (which I also bought at the same time). Those Japanese spokesmodels always look like they have no lines on their lips so the photos have to be legit, no? 😛

Well, my high hopes were quickly shattered. This cost US$34 (available at ichibankao.com), but despite a very nice, flexible and well designed applicator, it has no plumping effect. The gloss first applied quite pigmented, but to my surprise, the pigment fades very quickly. I would say less than one hour, you will need to retouch for the colour. It is moisturizing and non sticky, but also does not last. It does not do more than a drug store lip gloss does, and at this price, I expected much better.
