This is like a cross between a product like Lip Fusion and Sovage Lip Plumper. This and Sovage smells almost identical. The texture of this is somewhat balmy and somewhat like a serum. I think it worked. It works like a moisturizing plumper as opposed to the ones that irritate. This felt somewhat tingly, but my tolerance is high and I would actually prefer more. Strange, I know. I like to use these in conjunction with irritating lip plumpers. I think the effects of these kind of lip plumpers last longer.
