Wow. I normaly avoid cheap (aka under $20) lip gloss but I was looking for something SUPER glossy and i've tried just about everything higher end and this caught my eye... the writing on the packaging sold me and WOW am i satisfied!!! i didn't expect the plump to work i just wanted shine but i got BOTH!
major MAJOR shine adn a real nice plump. wayyy better than lipfusion! i really like the texture and it leaves my lips real moisturized. i do have to reapply every couple hours if i want to keep it SUUUPER glossy but thats fine. the packaging is great (lipfusion leaked on me), i like that its so big cuz its easy to find in my purse!!
plus i love the tingle.

I got this two for one (with Pink potion, reviewed seperately) so I can't complain about the price. Besides, after paying big bucks for products like Lip Fusion, Too Faced Lip injection, Duwop lip venom, and BE buxom glosses, these really aren't that expensive, even full price, and the fact that I LIKE THEM BETTER than the high end ones I mentioned doesn't hurt at all! This spreads very evenly onto my lips, not goopy at all but with a high shine. Within seconds my lips tingle a bit (not bad) and turn a beautiful natural shade of dark red, which they maintain for hours. The gloss fades in about an hour and a half, leaving smooth, moisturized lips behind, which gives the plumping illusion. If my lips are severely chapped and flaking, this is the only treatment which gives me relief and perfect lips again. Sometimes I apply this before bed and enjoyed hydrated, plumped lips all the next day. This also defines the lipline and makes the lip shape appear very pretty. After several months of use I am almost out of this, I'm to the stage of wiggling and scraping the applicator in the tube, trying to get product out. This is saying a lot, as I have never even "almost used up" a gloss before. I will repurchase for now, but am always on the lookout for something better. One lippie off for horrid smell, and while this is one of the longest wearing glosses I own, I'm hoping for better out there!

Smells like marigolds, complete with dirt. However, it does not taste like that, it tastes and feels more pepperminty. And the strange sent goes away pretty quickly. This is one of the more gentle lip plumpers I have tried, and probably also one of the most effective!

worst lipgloss i've ever tried. i'm not picky when it comes to lip products - I'll use absolutely anything. but this gloss was the biggest waste of 10 dollars I've ever spent. i bought this because of the good reviews on MUA but I wish I had just resisted temptation.
when i opened the package, the brush was uneven and frayed at the ends, making application a bit more difficult than it should be. the lipgloss had an artificial peppermint smell that i wasn't crazy about but didn't really deter me nonetheless. the gloss was incredibly thick and tacky . i was picking pieces of hair out of my mouth for the entire 10 minutes I had it on. (i even got some of the gloss on my glasses. it was a real pain in the ass to clean). to add insult to injury - when i wiped the plump potion off, a waxy film was left on my lips that accented every fine line I had. the packaging is also large and cumbersome

this stuff plumps the lips wonderfully! makes em look big and juicy,
the only drawback is, which is why I wouldnt repurchase, is
it dries my lips like maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad. it didnt chap them, just made them feel like wax and dry at the same time.

I love love love this lip gloss. I've been hooked on this for over a year now. I wear this stuff around the clock-colors for day and clear at night. It has completely gotten rid of my chapped lips and feels so great on. It makes my lips feel and look plump and soft and it lasts a long time without being unpleasantly sticky. If they ever discontinue this I will be absolutely devastated.

Wow! Well, it certainly does plump! It stings for like 10 minutes... yes, I wanted to see how long it would sting so I didn't wipe it off. :) My lips look bigger. I believe the packaging is supposed to resemble a needle which is kinda funny. My gf bought for me, but, it's huge and doesn't require much so I probably won't have to ever buy more.

The bottle is ugly and giant, but the product inside works wonders. My thin lips look plump and smooth.

So this totally gets all 5 stars from me. I saw a review of this on YouTube and instantly went out and bought it. Sure it was about 9 bucks a pop but still. I totally it. You get SO much product. And the tube is really awesome. I love the consistancy of the gloss. Its SUPER shiny and really amazing. The tingling sensation is so weird but so fun! Haha! Also, my lips are SO sensative and peel almost constantly and then adding a gloss or chapstick just makes them peel worse. But this to my WONDERFUL surprise didnt peel my lips at all. And I have only been using it for about a day and a half and I already notice my lips looking fabulous.. even when Im not wearing it(or wiped it off to eat or whatnot). Just like the packaging says: "Younger, smoother, and fuller lips with continued use." The smell is off at first, but Im definetly getting use to it. Its so worth it.
Will buy again!

This is a total HG product for me. I have battled dry, chapped, peeling lips for YEARS and YEARS. I unfortunately also have a habit of picking at my lips when they're dry and flaking. This has left me with rather deep vertical lines in my lips and I didn't even really notice it until I was reading reviews for PTR Un-Wrinkle lip and noticed someone describing her own deep lines from years of chapping. I was a bit shocked to see how bad my own lips were. After that, in mid December I was looking through all the lip-plumping products in CVS and decided to pick this up on a whim. I tried it, but was a little put off by the smell and the stickiness and set it aside. My lips were doing ok then and I didn't really think more of it.
Recently, my lips had started to get really chapped again, and none of my regular solutions (Dr. Hauschka lip care stick, Garden Botanika Vit. E lip treatment, Soapalaya Soaps Green Tea lip butter) were making any difference. I was really frustrated. One night, while reading reviews on MUA, I saw a review for this and remembered I had it. I pulled it out and tried it again. It is REALLY moisturizing!! My lips were hydrated within 1/2 an hour and I was able to rub off all the dry flaking crap that was on top of my lips without tearing my lips at all. This stuff is sticky, but it lasts a very, very long time and I actually like the feel that it gives. It doesn't burn at all, like some other lip plumpers do, but it gives just a little minty, cool feel. It does plump slightly, but I can't really speak to cumulative effects yet. HOWEVER - when I wore it to sleep that night, I woke up the next morning to soft, supple lips!! I just about started crying. I used to wake up every single morning with dry, chapped lips, no matter HOW hydrated I was when I went to bed. It was literally the first time in YEARS I didn't have chapped lips upon waking up in the morning. This product has been like a miracle to me. I don't even have to use it 24/7. Because it's so shiny, I usually just use it after the sun goes down, or at night and it lets me wear lipstick all day long. I am so incredibly happy with this product - seriously.
Also, the bonus packs are a fabulous value, especially when the drugstore has Physician's Formula BOGO50%. I managed to pick up 2 bonus packs the other day (one for me, one for a friend who also has dry lips) making each gloss ~$3.75!

This lip plumping gloss is great! It's one of the few products that does what it claims to do. I love how big the tube is (the design's pretty neat, too) and how much product they give you for the price. My only complaint is that no matter how much or how little I put on my lips, the product always tends to migrate downward onto the skin underneath my lips after a while, leaving the area sticky and slightly red. The smell is a little weird, too, but I've gotten used to it after using the product for such a long time. Other than that, this is a phenomenal lip plumper and I highly recommend it!

I use this as a bedtime lip gloss since I have super dry lips. I was amazed to find that when I awoke the first morning after using this the night before, I had soft supple lips.
Yes, it does plump too. But I use the pink and pink crystal colors in the day time.
Does not smell like too much of anything unlike the pink potion which smells terrible.
If you want clear, lip plumping and inexpensive, this a good one to try. I got a two pack, the pink and clear in one package for about $8 so it was cheap to try.
It is a nice large tube too.

I love love love this lip gloss! First of all, this really does plump up your lips! You can feel it tingling and within about 60 seconds your lips look full, plump and perfectly glossed! I love this because it leaves your lips looking as shiny as glass, and even though it's clear, the tingling plumping action promotes blood flow to your lips adding natural color! You wind up with lips that are plump and rosy-- I call them 'makout lips' because it looks like you've been kissing pretty hardcore or something-- that just bring out the best in your pucker! Very sexy but subtle-- a new favorite for me! The only downside is that it can be a bit sticky. I wouldn't wear your hair down in the wind with this stuff. : )

I am positively addicted to this lip gloss! It really pumps up my fairly thin lips and it has completely cured my chronically chapped lips!
Be careful with it, however. The other day I put some on before refreshing my makeup and managed to get some of it on my face. This resulted in hive-like welts on my face that lasted about a half an hour. At first I couldn't figure out where they had come from! LOL It's that plumping component in action! If you get some on your fingers (even though the packaging makes it kind of hard to do that) make sure you wash your hands. I doubt you'd want ton inadvertently rub your eyes with the stuff!
I agree with some of the other girls that the colored versions are not as nice as the clear and the crystal, although I will use them if I'm going out. One of the nicest things about the clear and the crystal (which is almost clear) is that the plumping agents increase blood flow, making my lips a very nice rosy color, the lip equivalent of my mother's old cure for paleness--"pinch your cheeks." This product pinches the cheeks of your lips, so to speak!
Oh, and this is worth mentioning again--this product has completely cured my chronically chapped lips, something even the higher end lip treatments have been unable to do!

This is an excellent clear gloss, I love it! I don't know if I believe all the plumping hype in general, but this does make my lips look nice and full. I could really feel the tingling when I first put it on, but it doesn't last very long at all..and I kind of like it. I could actually feel my pulse in my lips when I first applied it! It does a good job of circulating all the blood in your body to your lips! :) As for the staying power: excellent. Almost too good, as others have mentioned. BUT, it is not as sticky as lipglass that's for sure. And, the best thing about this baby is how much product you get! I'm pretty sure it's the biggest tube of gloss I've ever owned. I think it works just as well or better than all the other lip plump products i've tried, at a fraction of the price. Another reviewer said that you really do see plumping effects when you've been using it consistently for a few weeks, so I will be sure to update if I notice anything good!

Just a dab will do ya! I love this product and will buy it over and over. It's a bit thick, but it eventually sinks in. This plumps my lips for hours and enhances my natual lip color perfectly.

I have TINY lips and let me tell you, THIS WORKS. It makes my lips look big! I was shocked. Yes lip glosses have a way with making your lips look plumped out, but this is for real, more than regular clear glosses. The shine is Super reflective, in your face, glossy. Love it. The only reasons I took off a lippy is because, the bottle is so huge, it takes quite an amount of space in my travel makeup bag (not to mention it looks slightly tacky) and has a slight weird taste and smell I can't ignore for a minute or two. But that can be totally overlooked by what it delivers to my lips. Sometimes there are packaging that include TWO, one for free, so for the price, it is definitely worth it. Meh 5 lippies :D

This is a great overall plumping lip gloss for the price. When I opened the package, I was very impressed by the heavy tube and high quality packaging of the lip gloss. This is now my go-to clear lip gloss for work and a dinner out when I don't feel like wearing an intense lip color. I love the feel--not too sticky, the right heavy consistency I like for a gloss.
It does tingle a bit when you initially put it on, but I've gotten used to it by now. Really does a great job of transforming my small sized lips into a plumper and rounder shape. I would definitely buy again. I got this product as part of a 2 for 1 deal at CVS and had a coupon on top of that, so this ended up to be $3!
