This stuff is pretty close to awesome. No, it does not give me Angelina Jolie lips. No, it does not add color. No, it does not sting (but the price sure does). But it does noticeably plump and smooth my lips--just as promised--and does so much more dramatically than a plain lip gloss.
But good God, the price is awful. Just awful and shameful and such.
Wow, this stuff is ridiculous! Doesn't do anything for my lips! It's just overpriced lipgloss! I def. returned this to Sephora (thanks for the awesome return policy!) Will never re-buy!
I don't know if it's because my lips are pretty full to begin with?? Who knows. I would recommend sally hansen's lip inflation extreme. Now that stuff works. And you feel it as well.
I dont know, maybe I got a bad tube or something. Didnt do a thing for my lips and as for the glossing action I could have paid half the price and bought 5 lovely NYX glosses for that much. Waste of my time and money and I wouldnt buy again.
I was very dissappointed that this product did nothing whatsoever to plump up my lips. I had high hopes. It did sting but then that was it. As for the gloss factor - well, I could very easily use a gloss or vaseline to achieve the same look, and, it wouldn't have cost me approx $40 for it.
Love this stuff - not for the lip plumping effect as I do not see it - my lips are moisturized, soft and it really does last all day. I always have one of these in my bag - not a lipstick person - just balms and glosses. This is one of my favorites.
This plumper works great, and is one of the only plumpers that will actually make your lips bigger, not just a temporary plump. It's worth the $.
I had high hopes for this product and when I put it on and it started stinging, I got excited until I looked in the mirror and saw no plumping or smoothing of lines whatsoever. The stinging then turned into a numbing sensation similar to that experienced in a dental chair (minus the unsightly drooling). I'm thinking that
maybe the manufacturers made it this way so that we *think* our lips are plumped because our lips feel so funny when wearing this product that you can't help but focus on them, but given that it did nothing for me, I will continue my search for a better plumper.
Love these glosses. Most of the colors are sheer and flattering. They do plump, but if you want more serious plumping action definitely get the clear XL formula. For reference I'm in my earlier 20s with naturally full lips, so that might be part of why the product actually works on me. These plump about the same or slightly less than LipVenom or LipFusion XL. Even if these glosses didn't plump, however, I would still wear them for the long lasting shine, feel, and moisturizing properties (not to mention the chic rectangular tubes!) These are pricey but they seem to last a while, so for me they're worth it. I don't even bother with other lipglosses now.
Im not a lip gloss fan what so ever but I was looking for something to plump my lips which are on the smaller side. My moms friend gave this to me, and although it wont give you Huge lips...I absolutely love it! It gives your lips a nice natural plump and really moisturizes them. I even had my boyfriend comment on how plump my lips looked the next day after wearing this the day before. It smoothes out the lines and gives them a more youthful plump.
Although it is expensive, if youre looking for a natural none drastic plump I suggest this!
I'm kind of on the fence with this product.
My lips are very sensitive, and even though it says on their sephora brand page that it will not burn the lips, it did to mine. it felt like my lips were burning for 10 minutes, but then went to this cooling numbing feeling.
I do love the clear and the color blush. it smooths out the lines in my lips and it does make them look plumper.
It is also not sticky at all. it just feels smooth and like gloss, I do not get those icky glossy threads with this product.
I do love this product, and would probably re-purchase this in the full size.
My mom has super thin lips and she loves them too!
