Pucker Up Sweetie

 
 
 
 I had been given this lip gloss by a friend who did not get on with it and gave it to me to try. I had tried a lip plumping gloss years ago but the effects were not that great so I thought I would give it another shot to see if anything has changed.
This one is from Avon in Stay Pink Pout and claims to last hours but I am more interested in its plumping qualities!
First of all the colour goes on which is a strong pink and then the gloss goes over the top but for me the colour was too pink and so I opted to go for the gloss and just put a little pink over the top. This did not really work as you are supposed to put the pink on first for its staying power and then finish with the gloss (see pics below)
The gloss itself is a good consistency with a menthol like smell, but it gave an odd tingling sensation  (which is the plumping taking action)
Below are the pictures of bare lips, just the gloss then the gloss with the pink
 Before
 Clear gloss
 Pink pigment


As you can see the pink pigment just sat on top of the gloss and did not blend in well so the colour defo needs to go on first,  also because I put in on in reverse I can not comment on its staying power but for me it stayed on like a normal gloss would. 


 I can't see much difference between the first two - I think if I had vaseline on it would look the same, but then I don't know what I was expecting - I don't want a trout pout!


Would I buy this? no, for two reasons 1) the plumping did not work for me and 2) I cant wear it the way I want to (gloss and then adding colour)


This would be good for someone who wants a really strong colour with a little plumping boost. You can buy this on the Avon site for £5.00

  10. Thanks for the review. I like the pink color but not a fan of really bold color on my lips. So glad I found your review.

  12. The price is not bad, so I think i would check it out simply because of the color not because of the plumping! Thanks for the pics, it makes it easier to see whether we want to purchase the product or not! By the way great blog, I am a new follower and cant wait to see more posts from you.
