I love luscious lips! I wish I had bigger lips but unfortunately my lips aren't that plump so I will have to settle for the quick fix, lip plumping glosses. I choose the Sally Hansen Lip Inflation extreme mainly because it was inexpensive ($7), claimed to be extreme and I didn't mind having a new clear gloss anyway.
First of all I love the packaging. The long shiny gold tube is much nicer than other glosses I own. Instead of the slanted sponge it has a brush which I don't mind. This one is just a clear gloss with no colour or shimmer. It's supposed to be cinnamon flavoured but I thought it smelt like on old cinnamon smell. The scent is reasonably strong. You can smell it on your lips and I didn't find it very pleasant.
The gloss itself is nice, its high shine, not too sticky with decent staying power. When I first applied it it did tingle and almost sting but it was nothing unbearable. Now I wouldn't go as far to say that I have "pale thin lips" but I could do with a little extra help so without further ado here are the before and after snaps.
Honestly I don't think it had a plumping effect on me. I definitely don't think it gave me lips to rival Angelina's! The gloss may make my lips appear slightly bigger because of the shine it adds but as you can see the difference in minscule! Oh well at least I have a new clear gloss which I'm sure will come in handy.
What do you think?
