I want to start by saying that this product is $8 (and if you wait for a sale, you can get it for $4). I’m highlighting this right off the bat because while this isn’t an amazing plumping lip gloss, for $8, it’s pretty damn good.
It does actually plump up your lips a bit. It’s nothing dramatic, at least not on me, but my lips did look fuller with this product on then with it off. Like most plumping products, this one did make my lips tingle but unlike some other similar products, it didn’t make them feel like they were on fire, causing me to rush to the bathroom and wash the stuff off (true story).
The actual gloss is a bit of a goopy product though the sponge-tipped applicator allows you to put it on fairly easily. Once on, you feel a bit of stickiness but, like I pointed out before, this stuff cost $8.
What I like about this gloss, besides the fact that it does plump, is that it’s glossy without being too glossy. The colour I use, pink nectar, is also a nice balance between being natural and colourful. In other words, this is a really good day product, since it perks up your lips without making them look too flashy.
I wouldn’t really call this a long-wear lip gloss since it does come off on glass (again, it cost $8) but on the flip side, it doesn’t dry out your lips like some of the long-wear lip products do.
The only other downside is that Plump Pout Lip Gloss comes in a small range of colours that likely won’t work for everyone. Too bad, because for $8 this is a good, little lip gloss.
Would I buy this again: Yes
Should you buy it: Yes, if there’s a colour that works for you
