Last month I attended The Butterfly Project's X Lip Addict Malaysia's Tea Party event and it was sure a sweet one. Of course, I didn't want to miss out on another TBP event and at the same time, I was also curious about the brand Lip Addict. It's not a drugstore brand which we normally hear and it's not even from a high-end brand which we can get at fancy counters. Lip Addict is something different and one of a kind as well. These lippies are somewhat exclusive as you won't be able to get this in a mall. You'll regret if you don't read on as these lippies are made to give you the lips of every woman's dreams. Read on if you wanna know what I mean.

A big thanks to The Butterfly Project that yet again we butterflies get to come across another amazing brand. Lip Addict is distributed by SoAddicted which sell products from ISKIN New York. Their unique products are designed with a simple objective: A better, more natural you! They believe in the celebration of the small things that make consumers happy! Their products don’t just look pretty, they are specially formulated to bring additional, long-term anti-aging benefits as well.

Established in 1999, ISKIN New York has been dedicated to bringing effective, working skincare solutions to the market. Tested by dermatologists and formulated by Cosmetic Scientists, this brand ensures that their products are both effective and safe.

Their main star product is, of course, LipAddict which one of a kind lipstick. If you've been reading carefully, you'll know that this brand focuses more on treatment and so there's the answer. LipAddict isn’t just a ‘lip gloss’, it’s an anti-aging lip treatment that reduces the appearance of fine lines, hydrates, plumps, and improves the definition of the lip contour. Lips are left fuller, smoother, softer and more youthful looking.

Sounds impressive right? Well, thanks again to The Butterfly Project I was able to get to know the brand better and try out all the shades they offer including ideas on looks to wear them with. Besides that, it was also fun having to try it out with friends from the community as well. The Tea Party held surely reached its objective as it sparked a lot of interest in me after I knew the main purpose of these lippies.

As mentioned earlier, LipAddict is a lip gloss and also a multi-purpose lip treatment that not only hydrates the lips, it reduces the appearance of lip vertical lines and reflects light in such a way that it makes the lips appear fuller. It's considered as a non-injectable anti-aging lip treatment designed to achieve and maintain fuller, sexier and younger-looking lips without the cost and pain of lip injections. This unique lip treatment is specially designed to reverse the age-related changes on the lips, restoring its youthful appearance, and instantly creates a full and sexy pout.

So who wouldn't want that right? It's like a dream come true, especially to us bloggers who usually do lips swatches. I've already pictured myself as a lip model. LOL... Kidding! But seriously a sexy pout is a must if you're a lip junkie like me and constantly taking close-up pictures of your lips. To be honest, I feel very insecure about my lips because they don't really look appealing, so when I heard about LipAddict it kinda gave me hope for better lips. HAHA... I got my hopes high because I got to take home 3 of LipAddicts range to try out. 

LipAddict is made for females and males too! Especially for those listed below:

Have Dry and Chapped Lips 
LipAddict’s weightless formula keeps the lips feeling fresh and light without having the feel of a sticky residue. Organic oils protect the lips and lock in moisture while hyaluronic acid provides deep moisturization. It's like the ultimate solution for chapped lips.

Starting To Age
Included with marine collagen that microspheres and anti-aging peptides that target and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the lip area. 

Thin lips
LipAddict easily provides extra volume to plump up the lips.

Besides that, Lip Addict also:

Finishes a Look
A natural juicy pout is achieved by using on its own or on top of a lipstick to make the lips stand out.

Compliments & Enhances Lip Fillers
Muslims cannot do lip fillers so I don't have experience in this but if you've had lip fillers done, you can use LipAddict to maintain and enhance your results.

Tried and tested Professionally
LipAddict is Dermatologist tested and Cosmetic Scientist formulated to be both safe and effective.

A bit more info that you must know about LipAddict is that it's a hypoallergenic product, formulated with the blend of hyaluronic acid, marine collagen, and peptides which help plump the lips by increasing hydration and erasing fine lines by stimulating collagen synthesis. A tingly cooling effect after applied will be felt on the lips which are caused by the menthol. They promise after a month, the lips will noticeably be healthier, more defined and hydrated as well. 

LipAddict also suggests to exfoliate the lips regularly and apply their LipAddict Night Treatment #213 Jewel before bed. To make sure the best results are seen, apply a thin layer to clean lips in the morning and night. Reapply as needed, use the product alone, twice daily for 30 days and with continued use. Make sure to keep as a routine to ensure healthy smooth and voluptuous lips naturally.  

Unlike other glosses, LipAddict’s lightweight molecular formula guarantees that the lips won’t be left with a sticky sensation. It comes in 12 gorgeous shades to match your treatment with different kinds of looks.

Before we go into my review, let's take a look in the ingredients they use for this Lip Gloss:

LipAddict is also free from Parabens, Sulphates, Hormones, Artificial Fragrances, Gluten Free, Toxic Ingredients of any kind.

As mentioned earlier, I received 3 shades of LipAddict to try out which are Jewel, Pink Princess and also Air Kiss. For Jewel it's used for night treatment, so I only use it at night, the first time I used it, my husband asked why on earth am I wearing makeup to go to bed. HAHA... Guys can never really differentiate a lip gloss and makeup. Then in the morning, I woke up and after hitting the shower and putting on my skincare, I applied Pink Princess instead, which yet again my husband asked, where am I going in the morning. LOL... So I had to explain to him that I'm currently trying out this lip treatment to get fuller pouted lips. And as guessed, a guys reaction, of course, is laughing out loud. 

Don't mind my husband, he loves making fun of me but I still do what I wanna do so I continuously used LipAddict every day since I started. I use Jewel at night, Pink Princess at home and Air Kiss when I go out. So Air Kiss is always in my daily makeup bag which I usually apply with other lipsticks sometimes, but when I don't have any events to attend, I'm more comfortable with using LipAddict only as it doesn't need much care to maintain. After eating or drinking, I could just simply reapply without even looking at a mirror. This somehow has become a habit already.

I use Pink Princess only at home during the day and I use it a lot since I reapply it everytime I feel that it's gone. I love how Pink Princess makes my lips look like it's naturally pink, so even at home I feel good looking at myself, even without any makeup on but the main purpose for using LipAddict is of course because of the treatment. Besides, I love the feeling sensation when having it applied, its cooling and instantly hydrates the lips. The best part is that it's not that sticky and it tastes sweet too but it does leave stains and comes off easily. I don't really don't mind that actually because all lip glosses are like that.

If you look at the picture above, the left side shows my lips the first day I used it which shows the results after minutes having it on, while on the right side shows my lips using LipAddict almost after a month including the shades. If you look closely, you should see a slight difference between my before and after lips. My lips before didn't have much shape but after you could see my lips turn more voluptuous.

My favourite colour that I used is Pink Princess, it just brings out a nice natural look, like I'm born with amazingly pure pink lips. LOL... But if I have to choose among all the colours they offer, I think I'll love The Sexy Seductress! It's suppose to show a bright vivid red lips, which most of you know I love those bold colours. Overall, I think I have already welcomed LipAddict in my must have cosmetics lists, its not because of the colour, but because of the treatment it provides. With the results I see, I think it's worth the investment to maintain this treatment even if these lippies are a bit pricey. Now I feel more confident to shof of my lips. LOL...
