Got this product at Costco at a great price for a duo, noticed no difference. Nice little numbing tingle but that was it, will not purchase again
I originally bought the limited edition gloss in "Bling" (the one with the rhinestone cap that was sold during the holidays). I already have very full lips to begin with and admittedly was sold on the packaging.
I have very dry lips. I have tried everything and nothing can keep them moisturized. I was stunned that the minute I put this on, my lips looked healthier, moist, and had a bit of a sexier pout.
My only problem is that after several hours my lips are back to their dry selves but if I reapply I go back to looking healthy, sexy, and plump again.
If you're a gal with thin lips and are expecting a miracle gloss you're going to be disappointed, but if you have realistic expectations and don't expect to have super sized lips after applying I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
I now use the clear version (the one in the white tube) under my other lipsticks and glosses to keep my lips looking gorgeous! It does not make your lips super glossy, but more like the glimmer you would get from a glossier lip balm. The colored versions are sheer, thin, and not super glossy either but add a pretty sheen to your lips.
Purchased lip fusion in "sweet" at CVS for 75% off. I'm fortunate enough to have full lips already, but for $9.50 (compared to 38.00) I couldn't resist. My lips actually appeared a little fuller, not a huge difference, someone with thin lips would probably get much better results.
My lips are fairly pouty on the center but disappears on the ends. This was so far the best product in actually plumping my lips but it was a little bit of a change--a change nonetheless. It doesn't sting but sort of feels numb for a few minutes and then it's fine. Like a lot of the reviews here stated, this stuff really moisturizes, even on windy days and I don't need to constantly reapply. I'm trying the XL one once I finish this tube.
I think this is a great product - only stopping short of a 5, because it's not like your lips are plumped for 5 hours (but is that even a realistic expectation??) And it is a bit expensive.
I definitley feel a difference plump and appearance-wise and, having tried some of the cinnamon-style plumpers - this is WAY better!
I have tried the XL version and IMO - not worth it at all! I will be interested to see if the new collagen-filled plumper from Salley Hansen can compare - but until I find a cheaper alternative I will definitely keep buying this product. Other cool thing is there is sort of a mirror on the lid - now if they could just put it on bottle! Why don't other lipstick companies figure out the mirror on package!?
I loved this stuff, it's nice to find a lip plumper that doesn't sting your lips like crazy and turn them an irritated bright red. Once you put it on, you feel the plumping action, a slight tingle and numbness - no burning! I had it in the shade called Glow, which was an orange/pink peachy sheer with a bit of glitz; it smelled lightly of oranges. It goes on nearly sheer with a very wet, glossy look. The only thing I really hated about this lip plumper is the horrid sticky texture - getting my hair caught in it and peeling it out of the gloss was a nightmare (to me it's like when you exercise and your hair gets stuck to the sweat on the back of your neck... yuck.). That's why there's a 4 rating instead of a 5, plus this stuff is stupidly expensive for a tube of gloss. Other than that, it works so well with a couple applications a day!
Wow. I have thin lips. I have endured restylane injections on two separate occassions-very painful! I feel more of a difference using this product than I did with plastic surgeon administered lip injections! I have the XL, which I apply at night, and so far two glosses: smooch and fresh. I also have two pencils, pout and flush. I love the smell and the taste of the gloss-reminds me of a cherry popsicle! The colors are very sheer. I would like to see a bit darker, similiar to Cliniques black honey. Overall, I'm very pleased.
SO NOT FAIR!!! I went into Sephora with some girlfriends to give lipfusion a test run , there were five of us. So we tried it on and all around me the girls started to plump like little cupid lips.... plump... plump.. plump... plump... and then I looked in the mirror... NOTHING!! All my friends agreed, for some reason I was the only one that didn't get the plumping affect. So the only thing I could figure is that I already have fairly hydrated and plump lips. My friends have somewhat thin lips and generally don't hydrate as much as I do. ... moral of the story, either drink a lot of water, or buy lipfusion?
I have tried just about every color, and I have the Lip Fusion XL that I use in place of a lip balm in winter. The gloss goes on thick, but is still very wearable and has a mildly pleasing tingle. It's not sharp feeling like Lip Venom. But I haven't noticed any difference in plumping or collagen growth. My lips are pretty full anyway, so I just use it because it's a better quality gloss than the rest. I do wish they had deeper colors to choose from. I guess neutrals and nudes are in, so I'll wait to see if they come out with any new shades this year.
A bit on the expensive side, but this is a great gloss. Awesome, natural looking shiny colours. Each time I apply this I can clearly feel the collagen expansion in my lips. It still doesn't compare to injections in my opinion (which appear unnatural sometimes anyway, so that's okay). Smells great, looks great, and makes the lips look a bit fuller. One lippie off for being mega expensive.
