Vertical Lip Line Killer Filler

Bought on the advice of a pushy, older saleswoman (they scare me), who assured me it was a ‘wonder’ product – aren’t they all? I originally bought Estée Lauder Perfectionist Targeted Deep Wrinkle Filler to ‘fill in’ a horizontal line that appeared overnight(!) at the very top of my nose between my eyes, I’m sure there’s a proper medical term for this. It was useless for that, didn’t work at all.


Sadly, I suspect that there’s not a cream out there that will help, it seems from asking around that only a needle full of Botox will fix it but as I’m 1. Needlephobic and 2. Scared that I’ll have an allergic reaction, my last resort is a long fringe, which works actually.

As with most products you’ve paid a lot for and can’t use for their original purpose, you look for ways to make them pay for themselves somehow. When I read that it can also be used to fill out the lip line, (I need to actually read the information sheets more). I started to use a tiny dab (at £35, I’m going to make it last forever) on my top lip after using Benefit’s Lip Plump. Unbelievably, it works and my lipstick doesn’t ‘bleed’ anymore. Job done. The actual tube itself is quite thick, which means the product is liable to spew loads out if you’re not careful.

What Estée Lauder say about Perfectionist Targeted Deep Wrinkle Filler

Blurs the appearance of lip lines and creates an invisible boundary to help keep lipstick in place.

Yes, yes it does.

I had one particularly aggressive vertical line on my upper lip and I’m happy to say it’s gone. I believe it’s a combination of my Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturiser tip, softening the lips; the Lip Plump filling lines and this cream ‘sealing’ them.

Anyone else have a product that they make pull a double shift?

    I think Estee Lauder advanced night repair serum is great for reducing that line in the centre of the eyes. Mine is long and it has halved it .i have used it for a year now.Its really great. Creams will always take a month to work anyway but i am not into those filler things.They are too temporary i think. Your right though. To completely remove it then you would need Restalyn or Botox and i ain’t putting any of that so close to my eyes lol

    That’s really interesting, I’m back to using Advanced Night Repair after a very long break, I really hope it works as well as it has for you. I’d do anything to get rid of it or reduce it.

    I can also imagine an injection would hit the bone underneath and be really painful. I’m not sure how women can stand needles put in their lips, I’m beyond squeamish as it is but add actual pain to the mix, like you, now way.
