Rated 4.43 out of 5 stars
This product worked okay for me, but worked really well on my two closest friends. They both have more defined cupid bows and more of a 'structured' lip shape than I do, if that makes sense, where as I have more of an overall rounded or smoothed out cupids bow. When I use the lip plumper, my lips plump outwards moreso rather than upwards and downwards, where as with my close friends it does plump upwards and downwards, so there's more of a noticeable visiual change with them than with me.
It is very tingly/stingy, as if you ate a very spicy meal, but it's definitely bareable. It makes your lips extremely flushed, and I recommend making sure you don't let it touch the boarder of your lip and skin or else it will make your lips look swollen. I notice it does have a tendency to make my lips a bit dry after it wears off after a few hours, but thats very easily fixed with a basic lip balm.
I will say while I may be imagining it, I have used this a few times in combination with collagen oil and hydrating lip products and it has given me a longer lasting/permanent plumping effect overall, despite not having dramatic results from the product, I have seen some results.
This is the first lip plumper I've used so I have nothing to compare it to, but I have seen results and I haven't had adverse affects from this so overall this is a thumbs up in my book :) My friends really like it, I partial to it, and if I decided to get a lip plumper again I'd probably stick with this one.
It definitely plumps and makes your lips a nice redish pink.... However both times I have used it my lips started peeling were very dry and felt chapped for days. I don't know if my lips are just sensitive I've used other lip plumper's and that has never happened to me. I had to use Aquaphor on my lips every night and morning for at least 3 days after using it. I ended up giving the product to a friend after making them aware of the side effects I experienced.

Highly recommend this plumper, the best one I've tried. Will buy again and again. It actually moisturizes and had a soft feel instead of a sticky feel.

Please never sto making this! I have tried a few different lip plumpers and i havent loved anything as much as this!

Love the red packaging with the fang like applicator. It's very creative and adds to the feel when using. The product itself is so good. Other plumpers I've tried left my lips with redness all over that looked like a bad reaction this didnt do that. It definitely works so well and doesnt hurt to the point you wanna wipe it off. Definitely saw immediate results that lasted for a decent amount of time. My lips also felt hydrated after it dried down. Best plumper ive tried.

Maybe it works differently on other people but I don't think it plumped my lips that much. Doesn't burn at all which makes me think it's not as plumping but it definitely adds some color! Kind of overpriced for what I was expecting the results to be.
sh from TN
literally the best lip plumper i have ever used, actually plumps and does not dry out. leaves my lips with natural color and long lasting effects

It has a strong tingling feeling with this lip plumper but I'm in love! You can wear this alone, underneath or on top of lipsticks and glosses. My favorite way to wear it is alone or with a lip liner for a little definition! Highly recommend this!
venus from mulberry fl
i love this product so much. despite only using it for about a week i've seen long lasting results and i love how it feels when applying it. only downside would be the applicator. besides that i'm obsessed
Mac from Redmond,OR
I just received this and have used it a few times already. The first time I saw immediate results that lasted even after the product was off my lips. Unfortunately I'm not seeing those same results anymore. It does plump but not as "severely" as it did the first time. The product definitely burns and it turns my lips red but I like the color so it's fine haha. I would recommend this product but not to a brand new lip plumper user. This stuff definitely burns and for a pretty long while

Oh my goodness this lip plump is amazing, it quickly stings and plumps your lips. You can feel the blood rush to your lips and the color turns to a deeper red shade with no makeup needed.
Tabatha from Atlanta, Ga
I have tried many plumpers. This is the best.... hands down. it doesn't dry my lips and it actually plumps. It has a pleasant scent.
sarah from port orchard WA
this works really well! i love the plump affect and the way it leaves lips more red! one downside is the smell though… smells a little funky
sonja from austin Texas
softens and heals. my #1. not too sticky at all and lasts.
Val from Michigan
A lot of tingling but this does work. I've tried them ALL, and this is top five on the list of plumpers. It makes them red for sure, if you don't mind that. Also, it has a buttery taste that is pleasant while the tingling is happening. It tingles for 10-20 mins I've found. But for the price and how it changes my lips, it's worth it.

One of the best plumping glosses I have tried does sting a lot so be warned
Cdub from Charleston
I purchased this recently. I have had lip injections and am in between appointments. This stuff ACTUALLY works. Now, it won't give you an extreme change but it is noticeable. My lips looked more plump, flushed, and defined. Definitely worth purchasing if you want a pouty appearance.

I have used a lot of plumping lip products, and I think this is my new favorite. It adds a natural flush almost immediately, and shortly after the tingling starts I can see a change in the volume and texture of my lips. I love to wear it with or without other makeup products, and generally use it 2 times a day, plus as a 10 minute prep before overnight lip mask (as suggested in the product description).
Unlike other plumping glosses, this has actually made my lips softer and more moisturized. As the weeks wear on I am seeing more of a lasting effect between uses.

smells good plumps very well

I got this after reading all the tons of reviews but after purchasing and trying, I was not super pleased. It leaves your lips looking majorly chapped rather than plumped. Threw away after a few uses.
Cee from NYC
This is just okay. Only mildly stings. Wouldn't repurchase. Wanted something more intense than Two Faced Lip Injection. This is not it.
Surprisingly enough I found it hydrating. Another pro is the applicator. By NOT using a wand, it protects the formula from mixing with other products which can ruin the lip plumper.

Please keep on Ulta forever! My favorite lip plumper and I've used a lot! Doesn't give my bumps around my lips and gives a nice sting, not too sticky. Noticably bigger and juicer lips. Love it!
Hannah from Kentucky
Don't get me wrong, I love my Fenty Heat gloss, but this plumper works better than any I've tried before! The sensation is a bit different and isn't uncomfortable or burning. Definitely going to buy a second one so I have one on hand when I run out. Literally cannot go without this stuff anymore!
Significantly Colleen from Connecticut
First plumper that actually has a nice tingly sensation and gives a natural looking plumping effect. Has no smell which is a plus and leaves lips feeling softer and hydrated. Other plumpers felt more like an allergic reaction to give plumping effect and left lips feeling dry after. This is a ten out of ten

Plumps the best out of anything I've used! It even hurts less than the toofaced lip plumper!!! And, for me at least, it DID last the 2 hours it claimed to!
It even has a lighter consistency than a regular gloss! Meaning it's easy to stack another lip gloss over it or even a lip mask! Additionally, since using this each morning my lips have stayed hydrated for hours after application.
This, like ALL other lip plumpers, is TEMPORARY! While repeated use will probably help keep your lips from thinning, this is still only a lip gloss and not a cosmetic treatment. People wanting this to last for literally hours and hours after application??? It's kind of unreasonable…
It deserves a 5/5!!!

I love that it's not too sticky and smells like vanilla. However, the plump didn't last at all. I felt ripped off lol.
