e.l.f Plumping Lip Glaze Review

e.l.f says:  Forget costly Collagen injections, or those painfully stinging glosses, stimulate your senses to a refreshed full perfect pout with e.l.f. Plumping Lip Glaze! e.l.f. proudly presents a revolutionary lip plumper, infusing Natural ingredients that awaken your senses for fresh, volume enhanced, and moisturized lips. This dual sided Plumping Lip Glaze has a tinted color for a subtle plump or a clear gloss that power plumps your lips, use together and instantly feel the lip enlarging effects!
So as usual i got these on for £1.50/$1/€1.70 each they are also available on 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 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 
Fire Coral:  This is a very light red with a little shimmer on the swatch it looks more pigmented but on the lip it looks very natural almost invisible its on depending on how pigment your own natural lip is...........
"Mauve Berry" without the plumping side 
Mauve Berry:  This is sort of exactly what it says a very light mauvy/berry toned gloss with chunky gold to be honest it doesnt really give that much colour pay off but the gold glitter again gives a nice warm golden glow to my lips :) :) 
"Fuchsia Fanatic" without the plump side 
Fuchsia Fanatic:  When i got this i thought "Wow this is bright" i was actually really excited but when i applied it i couldnt help been a wee bit disappointed as its not at all as bright cherrish/pink on your lips as it is on the tube........dont get me wrong this shade is one of my favourites as you do get a love pinky natural payoff but the colour is a bit deceiving so dont be afraid to buy it :) with is also a bit of sparkle in this one :) 
" The plumping side on its own"
The Plumping Side:  Smells and tastes like mint,  When applied first its cooling refreshing and not at all tingly.......If you are not one for minty glosses or the cooling feeling on your lips well this side isnt for you......the scent and feeling wears off after about 20 minutes......The shade is whitish with shimmer 

With Flash 
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 

DISCLAIMER:  As usual i have purchased these out of my own pocket.....I am in no way advertising or been paid for these simply just try to help you all out by giving you an idea of what these products are like before you purchase them :) :)

Funny that you mention the minty, I know this entry is old but the link was at the bottom of your current post and well.. I own a Too Faced glamour gloss which is suppose to be plumbing and to me it kind of feels a bit that way but it's minty. I think that's what's suppose to help the lips look a bit more plump.
