So as usual i got these on eyeslipsface.co.uk for £1.50/$1/€1.70 each they are also available on eyeslipsface.com......There are 11 different shades available on both sites. I hadnt heard too many reviews about these when i first purchased them i think thats what made me more determined to try them out :)
The Packaging & Product
The Packaging is fairly simple and kinda cheapish looking but we are paying little to nothing for these so why cant complain too much about the packaging can we :)
Ok the Plumping Lip Glazes come in 2 parts the 1st is the supposed whitish glittery lip plumping gloss which is a minty scent and the 2nd part is the coloured lip glaze........ its stated that you can use each side on its own or together.......You are getting a dome brush from each side which makes application easier.......
Shades & Swatches
|"Ruby Kiss" without the Plump side|
Ruby Kiss: This colour looks more pigmented in the tube than applied on the lip......I was expecting more of a deeper red.....my lips do get a slight reddish tint but nothing big and of course a wee bit of shimmer....this looks well over your favourite red lipstick tho :) :) It Doesnt get any more pigmented even if you layer it
|"Baby Doll" without the plump side|
Baby Doll: This is a lovely baby pink but almost clear gloss with a bit of sparkle to it.......This is perfect if you want a MLBB look and perfect for over your favourite pink lippie it also on its own give that illusion of a more plumper looking lip i love it
|"Mocha Ice" without the Plump side|
Mocha Ice: This is a reddish/brown with golden shimmer to it.....Its beautiful on the lip and perfect for everyday wear on its own......I love how my lips look when the sun shines with this on my lips it gives a golden glow great shade :) :)
|"Fire Coral" without the Plumping side|
|"Mauve Berry" without the plumping side|
|"Fuchsia Fanatic" without the plump side|
|" The plumping side on its own"|
My Overall Opinion
I love the Coloured side of these glosses i think they are all fab shades and perfect for anyone ever the fairest skin toned gals like myself.....but im not fond of the plumping side to be honest.....When i use these i only use the shaded side.....I just dont like the minty side and the cooling effect it gives but that is just me after all.......
Does the plumping side actually plump up your lips????? No it doesnt it didnt have any effect on my lips what so ever......If anything it might create the illusion of a more plumper lip because of the shimmer and glitter but what lip gloss doesnt do that to be honest.......Anything with a bit of shimmer will give the illusion of plumper lips.......
Is it a waste of time buying these??? no as i said i love the shades and for the price you are not loosing out but i would prefer the Super Glossy Lip Shine from e.l.f better than these but i am glad i have them in my collection..... I will most likely not purchase them again but never say never eh? over all these are not bad but can be better maybe if they made the shaded side just a one piece gloss thats when i will buy them again
so thats it ladies i hope this was helpful...Remember this is just my own opinion and hopefully it will give you an insight in what you are getting when it comes to these.......
Until next time
Lots of Irish hugs and kisses
love Nina Carry
