Rated 4.06 out of 5 stars
As with most r.e.m. purchases, I adore this plumping gloss. Unlike previous reviewers, I found these to be slick and not sticky in the least. As for plumping, there seems to be moderate boost in fullness, along with a cooling feel. It feels amazing. I am obsessed with the Chuckie shade. It appears to be lavender in the tube, but is a cool mauve with a blue shift on the lip. Jelly Sandals appears as white in the tube, but is a pale pink with a blue shift on the lips. Both are sufficiently opaque to shade the lips, but transparent enough to look like gloss. This will replace my go-to afterglow gloss. Well done, r.e.m.
Let me start out by saying that I *wanted* to really like this. But, there were too many things that were not quite right that all together make this a bad lipgloss. If any one element (-ish) of the following issues had been changed, my review would be very different.
- it is *super* opaque
- it is THICK
- the color is not flattering
- it comes in a squeeze tube (NOT a doe-foot applicator)
Had this been a sheer gloss, then this could have worked really well in the squeeze tube, and this color would have been fine. Had this been a different color, the thickness and opaqueness would have worked (though it still would need the applicator changed).
As you may have been able to guess, I ended up using this as a topper with a dark lip liner, which looked okay. But without a topper, it is extremely streaky - I could not get a smooth and seamless application for the life of me. And, the color was SO bad for me that adding another color with a liner was necessary.
As for the plumping, the gloss was definitely minty, but I didn't see any difference in my lip size (then again, that is not something I look for in a gloss, so it could just be that I am not attuned to this type of change in my lips).
Overall, if you want to try out the lipgloss, I would recommend one of the sheerer options and pass on any of the opaque colors unless you can test them in person and determine that the color will indeed work for you.

Not awful. There's a slight tingle due to the mint, and the color is gorgeous!! My complaints; if you squeeze it "too hard" the whole applicator part pops off. Product is super small, is this travel size? I wouldn't pay full price for this again tbh

Lip plumper works great l, super cute color and shine. You'll definitely know this is a plumper because the burning sensation is almost immediate but it settles down after a few mins. I loved it, looked so cute and the packaging is so cute and futuristic just like the mascara. 10/10 for me 🤩🥰😍✨✨
Thank you Influenster and REM Beauty r.e.m. beauty on your collar plumping lipgloss

This was fine, the application of the product needs to be better, it's a squeeze bottle so it makes it difficult to get the product out and onto your lips evenly. I do feel the slight plumping effect and the color is really nice.

The gloss did give a very light tint ! And it did have a cooling sensation also it was not sticky at all! Aside from that this honestly was just a regular lip gloss there was nothing plumping about it! I personally did not see the difference in my lips looking fuller and I personally feel like it's very overpriced!
Also the packaging to this just kind of makes no sense to me; it is a squeezy applicator however the tube of the lip gloss is pretty hard!

I got this mascara on my v-box and I must say I love it! I used it for my school's awards ceremony and it did not smear. I recommend this product!

This product was okay, but not fantastic. It had a good texture and wasn't sticky. However, the color was not my favorite. The color was too pale.

Natasha from Iowa
I really was excited to get this. I love the shade and it is cute! But the packaging is not it..was disappointed on that one. It just feels so cheap and honestly gave me like 13 year old lip gloss vibes. I love the shade and the wear I just hate the packaging.

I like these glosses, theyre not sticky and are a bit hydrating but they do sting a little from the plumping. Only worn it twice so idk the after affects if it still continues to burn. They do smell a bit like vanilla. I got the shades 7 rings and needy, however 7 rings is missing a good chunk of product compared to the other shade I got. You can definitely tell because its pretty transparent. I wouldnt care that much if that space was there for a reason and all all of the glosses are like that but in comparison to my other full one and other ones I see online it's questionable quality control? Good thing I like needy better as I have a fuller bottle of it.

I've been using the plumping glosses since they came out last January, and I'm honestly obsessed. As a disclaimer, I never purchased any of the glittery glosses, so I can't speak on those. I love the pigment of these glosses, I think it's the perfect medium between sheer and super full coverage color. As someone that is super sensitive to textures, I actually really liked how this gloss feels. It's a tiny bit stickier than I would've wanted, but it's also much less sticky than other glosses I've tried in the past. It also feels very smooth on the lips and lasts a while before I need fo reapply. Definitely recommend.

It is so sticky and feels like a cheap lip gloss.
GnG from CA
Uneven, sticky application.. plumping effect is minimal.. formulation and packing not practical nor worth the price. There are much better lip glosses for the price tag. Love Ari, but REM needs an overhaul. :(

My friends… this is what we have been asking for! I got Pink Razor and its quite literally what is shown on here. Its this perfect milky pink. My lips are plumped, my upper lip exists because of this gloss. Ariana killed it with this one
