Podcast: The non-invasive treatment for fuller lips

Plus: Serums, explained & the button on your hair dryer you should be using more

Editor / February 02 2020

The injectables trend has been one of the biggest of the last few years, specifically lip plumping treatments. But what if you want the volume minus the needles (or even the commitment)? 

In this week’s episode of Get Lippy, marie claire's Beauty Director Sally takes us through the non-invasive treatment that gave her temporarily fuller lips. 

Also, we’ll be giving some attention to the most unused button on your hair dryer: The cool shot. Tune in to find out why it shouldn’t be ignored and how it could very well change the game when it comes to hair styling. 

And finally, we cover the world of serums. What are they? Why is everyone using them? And what are the ingredients to look out for? We cover it all.
