When it comes to makeup, I love finding brands that stand out in a sea of sameness. Grande Cosmetics is a master of double-duty beauty, with a line of products with transformative formulas. Products are designed to plump, thicken, strengthen and actually deliver results. I’m sharing my review on several products from the collection… keep reading to find out what I think!
Stinging lip plumpers can be super uncomfortable. The GrandeLips Hydrating Lip Plumper does not give a stinging or tingling sensation. Available in 7 shades, this lip plumper features hyaluronic acid and a proprietary Volulip™ to plump lips. I didn’t notice much of an immediate plumping effect, however reviews say it can take up to 30 days of continuous use to see an increase in overall lip volume. I need to wear it more!
I’m a sucker for a good lip mask and the GrandePout Plumping Lip Mask does not disappoint. It features Volulip™, to plump lips along with DuraQuench™’s Intelligent Hydration to lock in moisture. The lip mask also contains hyaluronic acid to smooth, shea butter, avocado oil and antioxidant-rich lychee fruit extract.
The mask serves up some good hydration and I like how smooth my lips feel after applying. I haven’t noticed much of a plumping effect yet but it takes about 2 weeks of continuous use to show.
For cheeks, Grande Cosmetics offers liquid blushes and highlighters to give skin a beautiful glow while giving skin a tightening and plumping effect. The blush is available in 5 shades, while the highlighter is offered in 3 shades. The formula’s are lightweight, not sticky and features Vin-upLift®, a natural ingredient that visibly plumps, lifts & hydrates for smooth, youthful skin.
GrandePOP Plumping Liquid Blush is a pretty, lightweight liquid cream blush. I have the shade ‘Sweet Peach’ which is a pretty coral-peach shade. It contains ingredients to firm and plump skin while diminishing the appearance of wrinkles.
I love how dewy it looks on skin! The color blends in nicely so you get that perfect pop of color without it being overbearing. It has an immediate tightening effect, which is neat.
The GrandeGlow Plumping Liquid Highlighter adds a touch of glow to cheeks. It contains a rapid skin-lifting system, along with ingredients to firm and lighten fine lines.
Unfortunately this was not my favorite highlighting product. I thought it looked dry and patchy. I also didn’t notice any plumping difference in my skin. I do think the highlight color is pretty- a soft pearly champagne pink.
Brows & Lashes
The GrandeLASH-MD Lash Enhancing Serum works to promote stronger, healthier lashes. Users have reported more visible and longer lashes. Earlier this summer I had noticed I was losing more lashes and I needed something to help strengthen them.
This vitamin and antioxidant-enhanced serum contains a blend of L-proline to fortify lashes, hyaluronic acid to prevent breakage and glycosaminoglycans to lock in moisture. It also features a botanical extract blend ginseng root, chamomile flowers, and bearberry leaves) to strengthen lash follicles.
To use, I swipe on my lash line each night. I’ve only been using for about a month but have already noticed my lashes looking stronger. They don’t seem as dry and don’t come out as easily as they were before I started using the serum. Full results can be seen in about 3 months.
All about those bold brows! The GrandeBROW Brow Enhancing Serum is similar to the lash serum but is specifically formulated to promote fuller-looking brows. Luckily I didn’t partake in the thin, over-plucked brow trend, but I do usually fill them in slightly with a brow pencil. I’m hoping they fill in more and thicken up.
Similar to the lash serum, results will start showing within 8 weeks with full results in about 4 months. Both the brow and lash serums ($70 and $65 respectively) are on the pricey side, however you can scope up a kit with mini sizes of both to try for just $45.
Both the lash and brow enhancing serums will take some time (at least 3 months) for results to show. I’ve only been using for about a month. Stay tuned for an update with the results!
