If you’ve ever been out to dinner with me or really anywhere where my purse is in tow, you know that I always have minimum six lip products on hand to cover all my bases—hydrating, moisturizing, plumping, tinted, glossy, you name it. Each of my bags and even jacket pockets have their own unique lineup of lip products in them, and it takes a lot for me to transfer a lippie between bags and coats just because I can’t be without it. That honor is reserved for a short list of products that have truly won my heart, at the helm of which is The Inkey List’s Tripeptide Plumping Lip Balm ($13).

While I was skeptical of the products claims to plump lips over time with no burning or tingling, The Inkey List’s Tripeptide Plumping Lip Balm is one of the first products I ever considered a real can’t-live-without. I’ve always been a tad insecure about my small lips, but I truly see a difference in the fullness of my lips after months of using the product on the daily. Plus, the lightweight formula is ultra-hydrating and provides a great shine, making it the ideal purse companion.

For quite some time now, I’ve been pairing this viral lip plumper—did I mention the OG formula sells every 35 seconds worldwide?—with lip liners and colored lip products, but just this week, the brand is releasing an exciting upgrade to their viral lip plumper: The Inkey List Tripepetide Plumping Lip Balm Tints ($13).

The Inkey List Tripeptide Plumping Lip Balm Tints: What They Are

Plumping lip balms are all the rage right now, but many of them only provide temporary benefits with uncomfortable side effects. Neither of those things are true with The Inkey List’s holy-grail lip plumper and now, lip plumping tints. Formulated to keep the sensitive skin on your lips safe, Tripeptide Plumping Lip Balm Tints are made with 6 percent tripeptide complex, 2 percent ultra filling spherestm, 3 percent squalene, 6 percent capacau butter and 3 percent mango butter to simultaneously plump, hydrate, nourish and define lips by attracting water for an instant swell and feeding the lips with essential tripeptides to visibly plump the lips over time, too.

Available in three, sheer, wearable shades—Pink, Berry and Mocha—the Inkey List’s Tripeptide Plumping Lip Balm Tints feature the same internet-breaking formula as the original, so you don’t have to sacrifice the incredible plumping properties to get in on the tint. The shade Pink is a soft, light pop of pink while Berry features a warm, red tone and Mocha gives the lips a light, beige color wash, so there is truly an option for any vibe you’re going for.

The Results: What Users Have to Say

You may have seen The Inkey List’s co-founder, Colette Laxton, on you for your page when the original Tripeptide Plumping Lip Balm launched, as viewers saw her incredible before-and-after photos and accused her of getting lip filler and selling the product as the reason for her visibly fuller lips. But, the only thing to thank for Laxton’s lush lips was, in fact, the brand’s lip balm, and the clinical trials conducted for the new Tripeptide Plumping Lip Tints only further prove that Laxton’s results are no hoax.

In clinical trials conducted, lips were plumped by up to 40 percent in four weeks—and up to 20 percent in just two weeks—with 95 percent of users also reporting lips feeling instantly nourished and hydrated. For best results, its’ recommended to reapply the product at least three times a day, and if you’re anything like me (I apply lip balm more than I drink water), that is no issue. If the numbers aren’t enough to convince you, see below for some out-of-this-world before-and-after photos from the brand, and even my own personal before and after.
