Let’s face it, when it comes to beauty, everyone is looking for that “quick fix” product or the new trend in beauty. I’m always looking for products that help enhance my features and I think I found one that I like. Today I introduce you to Sublime Lips by Cheeky Physique. A great way to get your pucker noticed with a product that offers fast results and a hydrating, feel-good formula.
This awesome little tube of lip gloss goodness includes Sublime Lips ($25 USD – 0.34 fl.oz / 10 mL), a Manuka Honey Lip Plumper that literally takes your natural pout to the next level with its high impact combo of nourishing Manuka honey and advanced lip plumping ingredients. You get fast results and a hydrating feel on the lips without the sticky that you would expect from a traditional gloss.
You can use Sublime Lips alone for a natural look or you can top your favorite lip color and add a little vavoom to your lips. I love using Sublime Lips on its own but find that if I want to take my favorite matte lipsticks to a whole new level, topping them with these lip plumper will give them that little extra something. When using this product, I find that you instantly get a tingly feeling on the lips – but it’s a cooling sensation vs. a burning sensation like other lip plumpers offer. As you feel the cooling sensation – the circulation in your lips is gently being increased. Within a few short minutes the lips will appear fuller and more defined.
This product (while does look a bit pink) is colorless and long lasting. The formula has a great sweet honey scent, but it not overpowering at all for those who are sensitive to fragrance. I love that it is not sticky and I can rub my lips together consistently (as I like to do) and it feels comfortable on.
Packaging is simple, but cute. I love the pink that adorns it and the standard doe foot applicator makes applying the product onto the lips a breeze. I like to keep my tube in my purse to apply on the go. Because Sublime Lips is not sticky, it makes the perfect moisturizer for my lips while giving me a natural plump look.
Clinical tests for key ingredient HilurlipTM (a proprietary blend of hyaluronic acid and tripeptide-1) demonstrated the following results:
- Lips achieved up to a 30% increase in fullness after 30 days. (A 9.2% increase was the average.)
- 85% of participants noticed a volumizing effect.*
- 70% experienced anti-aging and rejuvenating effects.*
- 100% were satisfied with the moisturizing and emollient effects.*
*Self assessment by 20 women after 30 days.
Sublime Lips by Cheeky Physique includes key ingredients like: Manuka Honey (an ingredient that is packed with antioxidants, it’s the ideal ingredient to hydrate, nourish and protect the lips), Hyaluronic Acid (Sublime Lips contains hyaluronic acid microspheres that swell when they come in contact with skin moisture, hydrating and plumping the lips) and Tripeptide-1 (a natural ingredient that supports natural collagen production for visible volume enhancement. Tripeptide-1 also helps protect skin cells from signs of aging for smoother, younger, sexier-looking lips.)
Since I have naturally full lips, I didn’t think that this product would do much in helping to plump them. But after the first use of Sublime Lips, I noticed that my lips not only looked juicier but smoother. And, what I love about this product is that while it has a gloss effect, my husband will still kiss me because it doesn’t feel sticky like a traditional gloss. It has a little bit of tack to it – but overall feels like a lip oil with a little more body.
Above are my lips taken before applying Sublime Lips. My lips have been exfoliated but do not have any lip balm on them. This image was taken with my phone and has been cropped, but not edited. You can see the fine lines in my lips and lack of definition. I might also add that this photograph was taken right before applying sublime lips and first thing in the morning after my morning skin care routine.
Above are my lips after applying Sublime Lips. My lips have had the product on for about 30 seconds and the tingling and cooling (while I can still feel them) are not as prominent. Not only do my lips look glossy, but they look and feel hydrated, have increased in volume some what and look moisturized. The lip line where my cupid’s bow is has plumped up some and doesn’t look as dark – leaving my lips looking smooth and juicy.
While the tingling does go away (and again, it is not that strong), I find that you still have a slight mint like feel to the lips until you remove the product. With eating or drinking, Sublime Lips will come off but reapplying the product is not difficult and it doesn’t leave your lips feeling sticky or weird when the product is removed. I absolutely love that this plumper includes Hyaluronic Acid, as it is a product I use daily on my skin and I can totally feel and notice the difference with this additive in Sublime Lips.

Have you tried anything from Cheeky Physique before or have you heard of the brand? What about Sublime Lips? When it comes to lip plumpers, I’m very particular and tend to not use them because I don’t like that they can burn, but I was very impressed with Sublime Lips.
