Makeup by Mario MoistureGlow Plumping Lip Serum

Searches on "Makeup by Mario MoistureGlow Plumping Lip Serum" are up 1,550% this week, per Google Trends. This could relate to the recent Business Insider report, "The 8 Best Lip Plumpers that Gave Me Full, Juicy Lips," although the brand has already achieved TikTok fame. 

The product is described as a hydrating, melting, glossy balm that imparts dewy shine. Created in a "propel stick" form, the serum is designed as a very emollient formula, whose plumping effect appears to rely on moisturizers such as shea butter, avocado and argan, as there appears to be no hyaluronic acid or other primary "stinger" in the formula.
