Kaplan MD is a luxury beauty and skincare company that will soon be making a debut at Sephora. I hadn’t heard of Kaplan MD before so when they contacted me with an offer to try one of their products, I was really excited to give it a shot and relay my thoughts to all of you!
The Kaplan MD Perfect Pout Duo contains both their Lip 20 Mask (9.5g) and their Lip 20 Balm (5g) and it will be retailing as a Sephora exclusive for $23. I was told that they would be launching at Sephora this month although I’m not certain on the exact date so keep an eye out!
This set boasts that it plumps lips instantly, exfoliates and smooths fine lines with papaya enzymes, hydrates and nourishes with 22 organic extracts and hyaluronic acid as well as protects against sun damage with SPF 20.
If I’m not wearing lipstick, I’m always wearing lip balm so to test out the Perfect Pout set, I made myself go several hours without my lip balm before hand so I could really see what this set was all about.
- Step 1 – Start with dry, unhappy lips.
- Step 2 – Apply a generous layer of the Lip 20 Mask to the entire lip area as well as the area around your lips. Wait about 5 minutes. Within that time, most of the Lip 20 Mask will adsorb into your skin but you may wipe off any excess with a tissue. I also experience a tingling and cooling sensation during this step, presumably the plumping action doing its job. The sensation was mild and pleasant though.
- Step 3 – Apply the Lip 20 Balm to seal in hydration and protect with SPF.
- Step 4 – Enjoy your new insanely soft and kissable lips! 😛
