I bought this in 'Elizabeth' and its a nice nude/pale tan mauve. I like to pair it w/MAC Viva Glam V lipcolor because its pretty much a dupe. Same thing goes for the Viva Glam V gloss just less expensive, I probably would not purchase this again because of the tingle/burning sensation that never seems to go away. It's slightly uncomfortable and I did not notice a difference in my lip plump'ness.

I don't have Jessica; I have Lindsey & Kim but the Buxom glosses are much better. I'd say if you like the tingle minty-ness to buy CO Bigelow Bath&BodyWorks Ultra Mentha Lip Shine (in the green tube) coz the NYX doesn't give off much color. I was disappointed so much coz Lindsey looks like a frosty pale pink in the tube but it's basically clear. This is better for slicking over a lipstick than wearing alone. Idk if I think it plumped my lips much but u can feel it tingling! It lasts for awhile too. I won't be buying anymore after Kim & Lindsey. These would be gr8 if they weren't nearly colorless. What it looks like in the tube isn't what u get. I thought it was just Kim but now I see its kind of a thing that it's not got much pigment. ;/

This lip plumper isn't like a crazy lip plumper! It didn't give me the burning feeling that everyone is talking about and I was actually hoping it would give me that feeling because that shows me my lips re about to get huge! Instead it felt very cool on my lips! It didn't really plump my lips up like I was expecting to, it still plumps them up though! It gives you a god plump but not Kylie Jenner lips at all! I think this is only good if you wanna wear lipstick just to give you a fuller look

Against all odds, this is my favorite lip product of all time! I normally hate gloss, but this gloss has a thick, moisturizing formula that hugs lips and doesn't feel gloppy or uncomfortable and holds on for hours. Normally I shy away from glosses, ESPECIALLY ones with a wand like this one as I've had some in the past that have overflowed from the plunging effect, but the packaging is clean and neat on this one somehow. Personally, I love lip products with the tingling effect and find this one pleasant and refreshing, and I have sensitive skin!

What really sets this apart for me is how well it holds while being shimmery and moisturizing. My skin is sensitive and my lips are prone to drying and cracking, but this gloss makes them feel better than any tinted balm I own (and I've tried many!). I am NOT a gloss lover, but this will never not be in my purse. I first bought the shade Lindsay looking for a blue-based shade to layer to make teeth look whiter, and I'm so glad I did! By itself it is also a nice, subtle shimmer for everyday.

If you like the tingle, give this stuff a try. I can't imagine any reason not to love it unless you don't like tingle.

This came with a set of NYX lip set otherwise I would not have purchased it on my own. I think the shade they gave me though is called Pamela... it has a peachy tint but goes on completely clear. That is the biggest downside of this, is it is basically just a clear gloss in terms of pigment.

I like that it has no scent or taste. No strike that. I love that aspect of it. It feels nice and tingly on lips, kind of minty. I like the way it feels and it doesn't last too terribly long which for me in a bummer.. it feels nice to me.

The texture is good, it actually manages to stay on lips and moisturize them as well. It is not slimy or slick and not overly thick, sticky or tacky. Can be used over or under other products as well as just a clear gloss on its own.

It does actually seem to plump up lips a bit...maybe just by providing a decent amount of moisture since I don't think find the tingly effect irritating enough to work in that way.

I don't see myself repurchasing this product but it was a nice surprise to get to try. As a clear gloss I like it way more than I thought I would.

before i give my review i DO NOT have the color Jessica, I have the color Lindsay which is like a pinky lavender with shimmer. I couldn't find a general review page for the lip plumper glosses, just certain names.

*This stuff BURNS. Not tingles, its BURNS. You know that feeling you get on your lips after you eat something REALLYYYY spicy, that's the same feeling I get. Not the most pleasant feeling and it takes a while to go away. Wish the sensation wasn't so obnoxious.
*Wish they had some darker colors for darker skin tones. Most are either really glittery or super nude.

*No scent. Sometimes I like my glosses to be unscented!
*Cute packaging!
*They have one that's completely clear! I'll have to grab that one next. You can get the plump look but also be able to put it over a lipstick.
*I DEFINITELY saw a result. My lips looked really plump and fat. If the results weren't as good as they are I wouldn't buy it.

Overall I would repurchase just hope maybe over time they reformulate them to make the burning sensation less intense and hopefully they will come out with more shades as well :)

I'm surprised to see the negative reviews. Well, actually, I'm not surprised considering this product is a primer.

First, this plumper does tingle a bit, but not as much as $19 Buxom products. I happen to like the tingle, and I wish this had a little MORE of a sting. Oh well.

Second, the texture is a bit tacky, but that means it will last longer. If you are eating or drinking without a straw, you'll need to re-apply. Since this product is inexpensive, that's fine. However, last night after washing my face, I could still feel a balm-like texture.

Third, the color is a tiny bit disappointing. It's sparkly, but it matches my lip color. In fact, most of my lip glosses/plumpers match my skin. If I want color, I'll have to wear lipstick. If you already have a bunch of sheer glosses/plumpers, consider passing this one by.

Fourth, I didn't really see a plumping difference, but I have small lips. I think I'm hopeless in that area. If it made me look like Angelina, I would buy it by the carton.

I will buy this again when I run out of my other sheer/nude glosses/plumpers AND if I have a good deal. Even though my favorite is Buxon, this one fits my budget much better.

I have this is Kim, the sting is intensely strong, but it plumps very well, better than the more expensive ones. These are very new one the market and I wanted to try something from NYX. Alot of lip-plumpers are a rip-off. The lipgloss had a nice shade and plumping at the same time I want to try other shades, but I'm happy with Kim.

First off I want to say I am a huge fan of NYX. Especially their mega shine lip glosses. When I was recently at Ulta, I saw this beautiful color with lots of shimmer and picked it up, not noticing that it was a lip plumper. That shouldn't have been a problem, maybe even a plus, but it was far from it! As soon as I put this on it started stinging my lips like crazy. This is characteristic of lip plumpers and is the reason why I don't buy them. I hated this stuff.
