This is just meh. I find it sticky, the color is blah, and I have not noticed much of a plumping effect. I prefer Buxom Lips any day. Just trying to use this up. Also, looks clumpy at times. Those little cheapy tubes of gloss they have by the checkouts are a nicer gloss than this one and the minty one prob gives the same slight "tingle" this does.
I have average lips, and I can tell there is a difference when I use this, especially in my bottom lip (for some reason, the bottom plumps up more than the top). The first time I used it I felt more of a burn and less of a tingling sensation, but I've either gotten used to it, or it was just a reaction to me putting it on the first time, as I can hardly feel any tingling when I use it now. It is pricey, but it works very well, so there isn't anything to complain about there, and I like how it's packaged, with the twist on the bottom so you can control easily how much gloss/plumper goes on. I was surprised with the gloss it gives, too. I expected it to be sticky, at least after wearing it for a while, but the gloss is smooth, and stays smooth. I have to apply it close to 4 times throughout the day, it's not a "once in the morning and done" deal, but it does last quite a while. I'll probably buy this again once I run out.
I am new to this lip plumping thing, I tried this product because Victoria's Secret happens to be one of my favorite stores. There is a sense of tingling...which for some weird reason I just LOVE. My lips are average, not too thin and not too full, so there's really no plump I feel that this product gives me. The plump some people see may be because of the high gloss. But, I love that it smooths out my lines. It is a bit pricey if you ask me, maybe because I am a college student? lol. The container is a bit bulky, I agree with the previous comment. I wish it did last longer. For me, I feel like I need to apply it every 30-45 minutes, that is without eating. I do love the gloss and the tint it gives your lips. It is great to wear to the gym for the 'clean' look, something a chapstick can't give you. I said I wouldn't buy this product again because I will be trying other lip plumpers out, unless VS find new ways to improve it.
My favorite lip gloss ever!
It makes my lips look fuller and enhances the natural color. I get a lot of little lines in my lips and this works instantly with a slight burning feel and makes them fuller and smoothes out all the little fine lines after they becoming fuller. I already have big lips I use this to make them even bigger lol and smooth out the fine lines. I have this in bare and I love that it just enhances the natural lip color and it looks so VS sexy like the models. It is a bit expensive I believe 22$ or so. This is one of the few things I can have on my lips that my bf doesn't mind. It doesn't taste nasty,it's slightly sweet and not to overly sticky and thick like some glosses,so it is kissable approved* The only things I would say that can be improved is first the packaging is a little to bulky in a big metal tube ,second you cant see how much you have left or know when you are going to run out ,and also it plumps great but for not that long and would like if they could make it stronger.I would like it if it was stronger.I dont mind the tingling I'm a tropper I had a child natural and pain is beauty lol But overall I am very happy that this it least works! I will probaly try the extreme one that is a step up from this one. My bf said this is his favorite on my lips so that means allot to me:
this was basically $20 lip gloss in a big silver tube. no thanks.
Have been using this for about 2 years now. Not sure if I actually like the product or the tingling sensation? Strange? It is a nice gloss to apply on top of your lipsticks. I'm just addicted to the tingling! LOL
awesome product. really works and gives you that numb, tingly feeling and a little expensive but i waited for the semi annual sale and got it for only nine dollars vs. eighteen. so far this is my favorite lip plumper and i love the smokey smell it has to it. hot pink is the best looking color for me
Price: This lip plumper was $18. I bought this in Baby Pink.
Packaging: I LOVE the packaging. It's a little bulky, but holds a lot of gloss. You twist the bottom, andthe product goes up into a smooth brush instead of a sponge applicator. Very simple to apply neatly. You can also layer easily to get the color and level of plump you want.
Time to Work: It takes about 2 minutes to reach its full level of
plumpy-ness. I didn't feel anything with one thin layer, bt with a few layers it tingles slightly. Not uncomfortable, it's a cool tingle, definately NOT a burning. Seems like it would be good if lip plumpers irritate you easily.
Meets expectations: Definately! Nexy i will buy the Bare color, but I will wait until its on sale; I don't like to drop that much on a lip plumper!
:) Try it next time you see it, you'll love it.
PS-It smells FANTASTIC. Like candy with a hint of vanilla. The color is very sheer, it's meant to enhance your natural lip color. :D
I bought this on a whim during a Christmas sale (it was going for $8). I'm not sure I would have picked it up at its normal price. But now that I've used it, I really love it--it has a nice smell and a lovely texture. It's very glossy and makes my lips look fuller. I'm not exactly used to lip plumpers, nor do I feel that I need them, so I'm not sure if this is particularly good as far as lip plumpers go, but it does create the optical illusion that your lips are fuller, and has a beautiful gloss and shine. I have it in Hot Pink. Definitely my favorite lipgloss.
