I had never heard of Perfect Illusion until I received it as a bonus with "On the Set" makeup palettes. According to Paula Dorf's website, Perfect Illusion "Perfectly plumps your lips for a perfectly sensual mouth. Ends feathering lipsticks! You can also use this magical pencil on those fine lines around your eyes. Non-retractable."

One of my biggest hang ups about my skin is the nasty vertical lines around my top lip. I did not get those lines until I first waxed my upper lip one year ago. My facial hair (eyebrows, eye lashes and fuzzy hair above lip) is a see-through blonde. I waxed my upper lip to eliminate the fuzziness, not because there was visible hair on my upper lip. I should have left it alone, but maybe that fuzzy, (clear) facial hair was masking the lines on my upper lip? Who knows.

The Perfect Illusion is not a long-term treatment for those fine lines. This will not decrease or eliminate them, but it does temporarily mask them. It's a white "crayonish" product that goes on clear. I apply to my lips and on my skin around my mouth. The texture is creamy, but not thick or sticky. I don't even feel it or see it after I apply. Lipstick/gloss may be applied after if you wish. This can be applied before or after makeup. I do touch up with it during the day. It's also a nice base for lipstick or gloss, and it does prevent feathering.

There is a US patent pending on this product. The cost is $20US retail.

I don't know how long one tube will last, but I will be repurchasing! (At least I can disguise those nasty lines until I find a decent treatment that can provide deeper, longer term effects)

Ingredients:
Cyclomethicone, Paraffin Wax, Polybutene, Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2, Isocetyl Alcohol, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Sesame Oil, Aloe Vera Extract, Vitamin A, PEG-8, Tocopherol, Ascribyl Palmitate, Ascorbic Acid, Citric Acid, Propylparaben

Cool product. As an aside...if waxing your upper lip didn't mask the lines but indeed caused them, I'd try threading the hair rather than waxing. It doesn't rip a top layer of your skin off. The area stays hair-free longer. And, to me, threading hurts less.
