If you love pigmented lipsticks but hate their drying effects, this is for you. My lips are unevenly pigmented and my lippies need to be reasonably opaque to conceal the unevenness. But the thing with pigmented lipsticks is that they dry out my lips, and it doesn't help that I'm not much of a water drinker to combat the problem from within.
I had been using a lipbalm but lipbalms only helped so much. My lips would go back to being dry and/or painfully peely (?). Since I've used this product, however, I have not had to use my lipbalms at all, but my lips have stayed smooth and hydrated! I use this product as a nightly treatment and each day I wake up to nice smooth soft lips. Having used it for the recommended period of 15 days I can now go up to a week not using this at night and still my lips won't dry out.
I already have pillowy lips so I don't care for its plumping effect (which I doubt it has anyway, so if you are looking for a plumper I suggest you look elsewhere) BUT let me say it again: it's brilliant for repairing chapped lips. If you are fighting chapped lips for whatever reason, THIS IS FOR YOU.
This is also gorgeous as a colourless lipgloss over your lipstick (it's a pale pink, but goes on clear) that you can wear to work because it's not too shiny.
I love this lipgloss!! I bought one for my mum and she loves it too! I love the tingly sensation, I love how it is sooo long lasting. It may be marketed as a lip treatment but to me it's the perfect lipgloss to wear on it's own as well..
I now alternate this with my By Terry Rose De Baume at night before bed as well.. This is definitely going to be a staple in my makeup collection.
I really like Dior for the fact that their makeup is big on natural beauty and the perfection to that end. A very clean, polished type of look is what they focus on achieving.
This lipgloss is no exception. It does plump, but not amazingly so, and there are better lipglosses for a sexy pout (buxom babes, lipfusion, sexy motherpucker).
However, don't let that distract you from discovering that this gloss is amazing.
When I first tried it at Sephora, I had a million and one things on my lips, so all I noticed of it was that it made my lips smoother.
Now that I've tried it again with a clean slate, I must say, this is very comparable to Avon's 2 in 1 Clinical lip system (discontinued) which I adored completely only this has a definite gloss to it and more plump. Lips feel very soft and smooth when this has worn away (which takes a while). I'm extremely pleased. Ready for kisses!
I'm a sucker for quality, no matter the price tag, and this is a medium priced lip plumper/gloss (comparatively to all the other qualified ones) with stellar results, easily bought at your local Sephora/Nordstrom for $30. Packaging is contemporary and classy. Everything about it, from the brand, to the quality, to the feel, and the look is deserving of five stars.
Definitely intending on buying asap. Try it!
This product is amazing. My lips are today with regular use of this BIGGER! Im not kidding. I use to have really thin lips but no I have very nice lips indeed. Now people can actually see them! HAH.. The smell of it is great and its a bit tingling sensation when you put it on. But thats ok because this producs is brilliant. Im so gonna buy this again. This is the first lip gloss I finish! I usually throw them away but this one is lovely.
I was not expecting to love this product so much, I only bought it, because they had a premotion... buy the lip maximizer and get a free Dior makeup case...I really wanted the case, so I bought the lip maximizer, thinking it would probably never get used...This stuff is Amazing, it is by far the best lip gloss I have ever used...it is moisturizing...it smells fantastic, it is not sticky, and it stays on longer than any other "non sticky" lip gloss that I own...and as for the plumping effect, that does work, it is not a crazy plumping effect, but you will notice that your lips look fuller...especially if you put it on before you go to bed, when you wake up in the morning, your lips will look amazing!
Also, the tingly effect that it has, is really nice, and not so tingly that it is almost burning, like some lip plumping glosses...Overall, I LOVE this product, it is a little expensive, but IMO, it is worth it.
Let me start off by saying that the quality of this gloss should deserve 5 lippies, but the price is just ridiculous. It is sold here in Canada for $37.00. But I wanted this for the longest time and I finally just went ahead and bought it. It is cotton candy in the tube but comes out clear, hydrates well, and it has this wonderful cooling sensation that lasts! It lasts well over 10 minutes. If the cooling sensation is gone, rub your lips together, it feels tingly again! I am surprised that people see no plumping effects. Because on me, this thing turns my lips from big to HUGE. Then I figured out that in order for this to be effective, you need big lips to start with, then the centre of you lips will blow right up, and hence looks even bigger and fuller and plumper. But if your lips are very thin, the outline of your lips basically define how big your lips can be, so the plumping at the centre of your lips will appear relatively subtle, thus disappointing many. So keep this in mind when you are purchasing this ladies, after all it is expensive. Other than that, minty vanilla scent like everyone mentioned, gives a high shine finish. GIves a healthy pink colour to lips initially when the gloss is still tingly. Don't smack your lips together too much, or it won't last over half an hour. VERY overpriced, but it is a good splurge to have once in a while.
$29.50 price tag. Wow! Totally worth it. One application and I noticed instantly smooth lips and plumper too. No tingling like Too Faced injection, but a slight minty feeling on your lips. Definitely worth the splurge.
Directions state you can wear this AM/PM for 15 days and you will notice plumper lips or just wear under gloss and over lipstick for an instant plump. Think I'll try both.
I love this over my dior lip glow! It emphasises my lips alot, so i just add to the middle mainly. Very pretty natural colour, which would probably suit all skin tones.
I've tried all kinds of lip products, plumping, balms, treatments, and i really do like this product. I do notice my lips feel smoother and appear more full. That says it all!
I bought this product primarily to reduce the fine lines on my lips and I do notice a little difference. This is good to use as a primer before your lipstick. Makes lips fuller and smoother. Love this stuff. Doesn't sting like Too-faced 'Lip Injection' (which if you get on your skin around the lips can be very irritating). Will be repurchasing this for sure! Only gave it 4 lippies because its a tad bit expensive.
