Friday Five – Plump Battle

Hello Everyone!I am so excited about today’s post! We are battling out some of the so-called “lip plumping glosses” I have in my collection. Some are literally amazing, must-have products, while others are duds. I had so much fun putting these fun glosses to the test. Keep reading to find out which opponents pack a better punch.

I added this plumper (also mentioned here) in the shade, Coy Toy, to my collection because of a recommendation from Tati (Glam Life Guru) so you know it’s #Tatiapproved. The only way I know how to describe this gloss is that it feels like your lips are vibrating. Kind of a crazy feeling, but I swear it’s addicting. Oh, & this gloss is actually so gorgeous. A perfect stand alone product especially on your more casual days.

2. NYX Cosmetics Pump It Up Lip Plumper
This one was just ok for me. For one, it takes a few minutes for the tingling & cooling sensation to kick in, & while it feels nice, I don’t feel like it looks particularly good on the lips. If it’s not adding plump or color or anything really…thanks, but no thanks.

This one.
This one is no joke. The first time I used this, I put on quite the generous coat & told my friend, Maggie, to take note on my “before” lips & to let me know if she noticed my lips looking more plump in a few minutes time. Although I was kind of joking, because I have never actually seen a noticeable difference in the thickness of my lips from a gloss. Cue said gloss. Maggie stopped me mid-conversation, to tell me, “Lauren, your lips are huge!” WHAT?! & they were! It was kind of insane. This gloss was particularly tingly, & I swear I can feel the seams of my lips stretching. If you’re looking for an actual plumper, before going for the needle, check this one out!
If I’m honest, this is the one I am most disappointed about. I love Pixi & totally swear by some of her products, but this one just does not deliver. It has a slight tingle to it, but not near enough for my taste, & the gloss itself does not last or sit well on the lips. It definitely does not do any plumping. I’m sorry to say it, but this one is a pass for me.
I’m gonna be honest, I have a crazy obsession with these glosses. Let me tell you why I love them so: There are so many gorgeous colors. The consistency of the gloss is thick & sticky without any stringing effect or discomfort. The cooling & tingly feeling on the lips is quite calming & refreshing. It’s very long lasting even while eating & drinking. So here’s the thing, I am not sure if it actually plumps your lips, but it’s super high shine effect with added sparkle gives you the perfect pout, making those lips oh-so-juicy. I have at least 9 different shades, but my favorites would have to be Sophia, Lauren, and Starr.And the winner is…
Buxom Full-On Lip Polish
for both it’s long lasting sheen, & it’s plumping visual.

I hope you enjoyed today’s plump battle!Do you use lip plumping glosses? If so, what are your favorites? xx
