Unable to resist any kind of drugstore lip product that is a) cheap ($3.99), b) from a brand I trust, and c) pink, I picked up N.Y.C.’s Lippin’ Large Lip Plumper in shade 472A, Strawberry Mousse while at Target on a diaper run.
Oh, those seemingly innocent trips for diapers at Target! I always swear I’m there JUST for diapers, but something/s always manage to catch my eye, and, well … the next think I know I’m writing a review about them!
Promising to plump , hydrate and soothe with cinnamon, ginger and Vitamin E, the gloss does impart a tingling sensation on the lips right away; it doesn’t burn, which is the good news. You know you’ve tried those lip plumpers (ahem, ahem, I’m talking about you Lip Venom) that make you feel like you’ve actually put some kind of radioactive chemical on yourself.
The color itself is gorgeous, and it indeed smoothes and feels moist on the lips. As for any plumping properties? I’m not so sure. Here’s a picture of me with just a regular, old lipbalm – you be the judge of that!
For the price, it’s a great buy, and I happen to love this particular color … just don’t expect to have any major lip plumping action happening.
Have you tried any lip plumpers that actually plump the lips?
