It happens to do the opposite from its name... its not moisturizing at all! In fact, it actually makes yourself so chapped its crazy! The only time when I use this is when I really need the color that I have for my look. Also it stings like crazy, in a very painful way... more than it should. Avoid purchasing this :/

to be fair, i have naturally full lips so i've never used any lip plumping products before this. i knew that these kinds of products work by basically irritating your lips to make them swell up, but holy hell, using this stuff was like torture. the applicator seems so innocent and unassuming, just your average everyday lip crayon. you would never know that the fires of hell burn within. i usually like lip crayons but the application of this was patchy and uneven, not to mention that it makes any dry patch on your lips stand out. at first the stinging sensation wasn't so bad, and i decided if i couldn't keep it on all day i would at least keep it on long enough to see the plumping effect on my lips. but it only got worse and worse until i thought my fucking lips were going to burn off. i know that beauty is pain but my god this is not worth it. i couldn't get through the first 10 minutes just to see if the pain would wear off. i abandoned the whole idea of seeing my lips plumped and even after i washed this stuff off as i begged god's forgiveness my lips still burned. the only noticeable difference in my lips during/after wearing this was that the edges of my lips were all red and blurry, like a rash. not attractive at all. the only redeeming feature of this god-awful product is that it has a really beautiful glossy finish after application.

I have the shades 'Bigger Berry' and 'Never Enough Nude'.

Lip crayons, as a general rule, are my favourite. I find them very moisturising and easier to apply than lipstick in most cases.
Too Faced's offerings haven't failed me. The shades are very flattering and glossy and the packaging, as with all Too Faced products, is awfully cute and I refuse to throw it away.
What isn't cute, however, is the fact that the first few applications made me want to rips my lips off. It would've hurt less.
The 'tingling' sensation that is part of the lip-plumping process is more of an intense burn. I've heard a lot of people say that they thought they were having some kind of allergic reaction. The feeling lasts a good few minutes and is highly unpleasant. After a few uses, I think I've become somewhat 'immune' to the intensity, and my mum and boyfriend (who insisted on trying it because of how much I complained about the pain) weren't affected by it whatsoever. How odd!
Don't get me wrong, this is a lovely product and there is a good range of colours to choose from, but please, Too Faced, beauty shouldn't be THIS painful!

I got this in the nude shade, and unfortunately I can say that I won't buy it again. I didn't mind the burning sensation - it actually felt like little bee stings on my mouth, as if it was doing something. After, I noticed that my lips looked no bigger than before.

The color wasn't that suitable for my complexion, which isn't the company's fault, but I noticed an accumulation of product in the corners of my mouth after wearing for awhile. Not an attractive look! I wear this once in awhile when I'm home because it was expensive, but sadly, won't repurchase.

I received this Lip Injection in the shade 'Bee Sting' with the Too Faced 'A Few of My Favorite Things' palette and was not particularly excited about its inclusion - I already have full lips and am not huge on lip products (with the exception of lip balm) as a whole but I figured that it would be a shame if I didn't at least try it.

Upon application, a few things went through my mind. Namely expletives. Because this HURT. This REALLY HURT. It felt like my lips were ON FIRE. Think of that nice tingly feeling you get when you apply certain types of lip balm and turn that feeling into pain, and then amplify it by a hundred. That is what it felt like.

Now, I wish I could tell you something about the colour of the product or how it applied or whether it actually plumped or not but I didn't keep it on long enough to analyse the way it looked because it hurt THAT bad.

All I have to say is that it doesn't matter how nice the colour of these products might be or how great you think it might look on you. Save your lips. For your own sake.

I bought these in Bigger Berry (a terrific wine color) and Candy Burst (pastel pink) after watching a Youtube video showing how well they wear throughout the day. I like peppermint fragrances and have worn minty lip products in the past with no irritation. My lips tingled a bit after first applying, but that dissipated after just a few minutes. Both colors looked very good on me and lasted a few hours. I learned the secret to a smooth application is to exfoliate and moisturize my lips first. And to apply with a light hand. Otherwise it kind of peels off in patches, which isn't very attractive. I didn't notice any lip plumping benefits from this product but like it for other reasons - it lasts longer than a gloss but still has some luster. And while it doesn't last as long as lip stains, it's not as harsh on my lips either. So it's a good compromise, and I really like the color range. Deducted a lippie for not plumping my lips and for not having the best packaging (you can't twist the product down to protect it before putting the lid on).

Oh Coral Pop - I thought you were going to be very corally and make my lips POP! But you didn't...

Instead you are very patchy and that's the thing I can't forgive you for and be off buying more of these. I have to give it to you though - you are very misleading in that you are creamy soft and glide on beautifully with lots of visible colour, coverage and prettiness - sadly it just doesn't last long as you seem to wear off pretty quickly and look patchy and you are an absolute disaster if I try to layer you over another lipstick.

Your colour on me - I'm of the paler skin variety and this looks more pinky, peachy coral than flat out coral. Thankfully my lips don't need a boost as all I get from your pop aspect is a few seconds of tingle - then nothing.

I like that you are a wind up pencil instead of a sharpen, this way you should last longer. But as far as formula goes I prefer the Urban Decay Pencil Lipsticks over this even though they wear down fast, the lasting coverage is better. The Too Faced La Creme Lip Cream Lipsticks are much more luxe than the TF Plumping Lip Tint pencils as well and are slightly cheaper.

I have this in the shade Coral Pop.
First off, I love the color. It's the perfect summery coral that doesn't make me look yellow or washed out. It's got just enough pink in it to be flattering against my fair, olive-toned skin.
The formula is interesting. I don't really see it plumping my lips at all, but I don't expect that out of products that boast that kind of claim. It's moisturizing while it's on, but the moisture doesn't last after the product wears off, which is a bit disappointing.
I only do a light wash of this on my lips, so when it does wear off after a while, the stain that's left behind doesn't look chapped or flaky.
The packaging is adorable, but the tip doesn't retract all the way down, so you have to be careful when opening and closing it that you don't nick the product. For something that costs as much as this does, I'm surprised they let it slide with that kind of well-known and much-hated flaw that is usually left to lower-priced drugstore products.
It does cost quite a lot. But it's a premium brand, so what do you expect?
I may buy this in another color - perhaps the nude or a light pink. It's unique and fun enough for me to want more, but not so amazing that I'll be calling it my HG lip product any time soon.

EDIT: I decided to drop this down one lippy. I tried another color in this range - Candy Burst. It's rubbish. Unlike Coral Pop, this goes on streaky and milky and enhances dry patches rather than providing any hydration whatsoever. In fact, this made my lips significantly drier, to the point that they felt like dry cloth once this product was removed. I now have to do a couple days worth of damage control to reverse the dryness that this product caused. Going back to Ulta. Too bad Coral Pop was the only shade worth its salt in this collection, seeing as for me, it's a decidedly warm-weather shade.

EDIT 1/13/15: I am so dang fickle. Anyway, boosted this back up one lippy after picking up the shade Bigger Berry and finding that for me, it performs every bit as beautifully as Coral Pop. Candy Burst's vile performance might have been exclusive to that one shade, or it may be that Coral Pop and Bigger Berry are the anomalies, but either way, that's 2 for 3 on these lip tints. No other colors interest me in the range, however, so it's likely that I'll be trying any others after I run out of the two shades I do like. Thankfully, Bigger Berry is great for the cold months because it's not bright like Coral Pop.

They're quite expensive, but you get a lot of product and it actually plumps your lips. I have this in Coral Pop and Bigger Berry, and I'm waitlisted(!)for Never Enough Nude because it's always sold out. Coral Pop is a corally pink color and Bigger Berry is a dark pink berry color. The product stays put for a good while, but when it's starting to wear off your lips look chapped and weird so be aware of that. Other than that; it tingles the first few minutes, just like with any other plumper, and it has a matte/satin-y finish.

I received Bigger Berry as a gwp at Ulta last year, and it has not left my makeup bag since. I love the color (which is brighter than the packaging suggests) and the mild tingle. My one complaint is that it doesn't look great when it starts to wear off, so I have to be mindful to reapply. Sometimes I pair it with Smashbox Lip Enhancing Gloss in Tease, and that really helps.
