Love your lips with YBF’s Define

by Bionic Beauty on 22.Jun.2010 · 8 comments

YBF Skincare has created yet another amazing product! I never would have considered an anti-aging potion for my lips other than my usual Jojoba Oil and multiple daily applications of lip balm. YBF’s new Define is billed as a “Lip area anti-age cream, Brightens and contours, and Improves fullness”.

Here’s a bit of Define information direct from YBF Skincare ~

“For many of us, age and stress show first on our lips in the form of darker lips and loss of contour or definition of the lip line. This leads to a thinner-looking smile and for women, vertical lipstick bleed lines.”

I’ve been using Define on my lips every night before bed for the last two months. The formula is super smooth and creamy; and has a slight minty flavor. It’s definitely made a difference in smoothing my lips, and defining the edges. Plus I wake up with moisturized lips that don’t leave me grasping for balm immediately!

Define costs $70 and is available on The Skin Care Shop. I know it seems pricey, but you don’t even need a pea-size for each application… and if you’ve got creases around your lip area or seek some extra fullness, Define should definitely be tops on your list!

You can find more intel on Define and a full ingredients list at YBF-Skincare.com. If you decide to try this super-cool product, I’d love to hear your experience!

I remember you did a giveaway on this a long time ago. I could never buy a $70 face product. But it sounds great

Actually YBF gave out free samples to 50 Bionic Beauty readers a few months ago. Hopefully I’ll have another YBF giveaway soon (hint, hint: Bionic’s third anniversary is coming up next month, so there will be a BIG celebration with LOTS of giveaways and fun stuff!).

I will say that Correct & Restore by YBF are my absolute favorites. They’ve helped my acne, my melasma (hyperpigmentation), dark circles under my eyes, and balancing my skin. They are worth every penny even though they are pricey… thankfully each bottle lasts me about 4-6 months. I use only a pea-size each day.

THIS SOUNDS NICE, A BIT……….WELL, I HAD INJECTIONS ON MY LIPS SO I SHOULD NOT COMPLAIN. NOW THE INJECTIONS WERE PRICEY ! THAT ONLY LASTS SO LONG, SO PERHAPS I WILL CONSIDER THIS IN THE FUTURE. THANKS FOR THE INFO, DOES IT HELP SMOOTHING THE ROUGHNEST OUT? I SEEM TO HAVE CHAPPED LIPS ALOT LATELY. ANY HINTS FOR THAT?

Hi Robyn, Define isn’t really a plumping-action type of product. It instead helps remove lines on your lips, keep them super-hydrated, and define that line between your facial skin and your lips. I use it at night before bed and I don’t have to use lip balm nearly as much as usual the next day. :) And I’m a lip balm addict!

Here are some of my favorites:
YBF’s Quench: http://bionic-beauty.com/bionic-review-ybfs-quench-lip-balm/
My Lip Stuff (they have over 400 flavors!!): http://bionic-beauty.com/bionics-review-of-my-lip-stuff-balms/
Snog: http://bionic-beauty.com/review-snog-lip-balm/

Those all get carried around with me constantly. I used to love Burt’s Bees lip balm, but they seem to have up’ed the menthol which causes my lips to dry out with repeated use. That’s something many people don’t realize. Many of us love minty lip balms, but the menthol and other oils used for that minty, refreshing tinge actually causes dry skin on your lips.

I hope this helps! Post back with any more questions. :) And thanks for all your comments lately. It’s really great having you as a Bionic Beauty reader!!
All my best,
Jami

Hi, quick question about this product (Define). Do you put it on your lips only or also around your lips? It seems like only on your lips but then how does it deal with the lines in the skin near the lips? Help!

Thanks,
Kelly

Hi Kelly,
For the application of Define: I find it works best if I apply it to my lips and also let the extra flow “over” to the edges of my skin. I apply it to the skin around my lips, using my finger and a light touch, about a finger’s width wide. It’s REALLY helped get rid of any tiny lines, clogged pores, etc.

Feel free to write back on here with further questions or comments. I’m here to help!
Take care,
Jami

Dear Stacy, Wasn’t sure how to reach you. I am so upset with HSN’s computer system. This is the second time I have missed being able to get your special
ybf Pucker up Lip Kit! I called before you talked about it four times and the system would mess up. By the time I finally reached someone it was sold out. I cried I was so upset. Please would you check to see if you have one more left?? I am 72 yrs young and using your products is very important to me. My grandsons wedding is this Dec. I just have to have the best color lipstick. I will appreciate your help so very much. You taught me how to use makeup and people tell me I look younger. You can ask HSN surely they know how upset I was when I called Customer Service. I cried because of their dang machine messing up. Thank you, Stacy. I look forward to seeing you on air again soon.
Happy holidays Dear.

Hi Mary, Unfortunately I think you have the wrong brand here. This review is for YBF Skincare’s Define lip anti-aging product. It’s not makeup like the YBF stuff on HSN. If you’re seriously interested in anti-aging, I recommend looking at the *REAL* YBF. http://www.ybf-skincare.com.

Also, I can’t put you in touch with the HSN people. Bionic Beauty is a daily women’s magazine in online format. I publish articles about skincare, free samples, reviews, makeup looks, nail polish swatches, drugstore sales, discount codes, etc. And all for free! However, I am not associated with any particular brand, and therefore remain neutral and honest in all my reviews. I hope you’ll consider commenting more at BB and hopefully subscribing!
Please post back with any questions.
All my best,
Jami
