MAKE-UP lovers are in a frenzy over a new lip product they reckon gives you the same effect as pricey filler – and it’s selling for £10.99 on the high street.
The INKEY List Tripeptide Plumping Lip Balm, which is available at Boots, is formulated with a Tripeptide complex – and this is what will boost fullness over time.

According to the budget-friendly skincare brand, the lip product has been ”clinically proven to increase lip volume by up to 20 per cent in just two weeks and 40 per cent in four weeks”.
In fact, the plumping qualities have been so effective, The INKEY List’s co-founder, Colette Laxton, has even had to deny lip filler accusations after sharing a clip the brand’s Instagram page.
Chatting to MailOnline, Colette hit back at the trolls: ”I can categorically deny – I have never had any work on my face or lips at all – I am too scared of needles!
”I was shocked and quite amused when I saw the reaction; however, at The INKEY List, we pride ourselves on being transparent – I would never want to hoodwink people.”
She went on to add: ”I have always had thin lips, and this product has been such a win for me personally – my four-week journey was genuine – I have the date stamps on my phone!”
As well as being boosted with the Tripeptide complex, the lip balm also contains hyaluronic filling spheres, which create a plumping effect i seconds as they expand on your pout.
What’s more, beauty lovers will also be left with the on-trend glossy finish and a soft, healthy pout – mwah.
Colette explained that unlike traditional lip plumpers in the market, this ”multi-tasking balm” helps to maintain the skin barrier, as well as retaining moisture – and there are no unpleasant tingles involved either.
For best results, it’s advised to use the buy at least three times every day.
However, the brand noted, the effects will wear off without continued use.
After making incredible sales on their first launch day – and since becoming their best-selling product – The INKEY List Tripeptide Plumping Lip Balm has also received numerous positive reviews.
One happy shopper said: ”The perfect balm. ‘So I have been using my gifted by INKEY List plumping lip balm for around three weeks now, and my lips are feeling so much smoother, fuller and a lot more hydrated.”
Another chimed in: ”My lips are glossy plumped and has a gentle effect on them. Happy with the results so far.”
Someone else penned: ”The results have been nothing short of incredible. My lips are visibly brighter, plumper and incredibly well-hydrated.”
”It’s unquestionably the best lip balm I’ve ever had the pleasure of using. I can’t wait to see more results after two weeks,” a fourth had nothing but positive remarks to say.
If you’re heading to Boots to stock up on this must-have bargain buy, one savvy shopper recently revealed an easy hack that will give you loads of extra Advantage Points – and it takes seconds.
Taking to TikTok to share the trick, the whizz, @emmaflicc_, advised to first download the Boots’ app and add all your Advantage Card details.
Once done, Emma said to head to the View Offers section where you click on one that says ”Load”.
”That means that when you use your Advantage Card that offer will become available.
”Basically, what happens is I end up buying or meeting whatever the threshold of these offers, then all these additional points or discounts will automatically be applied at the checkout,” she explained in the video.
For example, if she was to snap up a haircare product by Aveeno, she’d rake in an additional 200 points.
”This isn’t just in-store you guys, you can also do it online.
”But make sure you put your Advantage Card details in.”
