Confession: I’ve tried tons of lip plumping lip glosses in the past, and never thought that any of them actually worked. Instead, they left my lips feeling tingly and tasting like poison.
…but it was worth one more shot, right?
I saw Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme on a makeup blog recently, and I was intrigued by the fact that it supposedly has long-term lip plumping results as well. So I grabbed it from Sephora a few weeks ago to see for myself.
Now, I haven’t had it for a long time, so I can’t tell you about the long-term results. But here’s a look at the before and (about five minutes) after of application.
I did my best to keep the same pose in each picture with no facial expressions, so pardon the awkward seriousness…
What do you think? Obviously the most noticeable difference is the color of my lips, which combined with the gloss is what could make them appear bigger. But I really did notice at least a slight plump (especially in my upper lip) when looking at myself in the mirror.
So – the verdict? I give it a B. Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme is definitely the best lip plumping gloss I’ve used so far, but I wouldn’t give it an A until I see these supposed long term results. Not to mention it still has that gross smell/taste of other lip plumping glosses. To be continued…
Have you ever used a lip plumping gloss?
What’s your go-to lip gloss/lipstick?
