Its that time of the month! That wonderful time in which I review a beauty product. I was on a walk around the mall when I went into one of my havens, Sephora. I came across GlamGlow’s newest product the Plumprageous Matte Lip Treatment, I love Glamglow’s products, but I also hate the name of this product. Plumprageous, really? That’s the best you could come up with? Anyway, I’m all for more natural ways to enhance my lips with out ejections, so I decided to try it out.
I picked the matte finish. They have a glossy finish as well but I hate glossy because it drives me crazy when my hair get stuck to my lips. It took me a whole minute to figure out how to open the darn applicator. It was an advanced tool! When I finally got it up (which I did incorrectly) I put a nice thick layer on my lips and waited and waited. At first I didn’t think I put it on correctly because I didn’t feel the typical tingles you feel right away with a lip plumper. However, the tingles started and then it got a little more intense and then it turned in to out right stinging. It was peppery and icy at the same time. I know its hard to imagine, but the wussy part of me wanted to take it off.
Plumprageous worked. It plumped my lips in a torturing way if you’re into the whole “beauty is pain” idea. See my before and after pictures.
Okay, so its not a big difference, but it still worked. I guess at the end of the day I wasn’t super impressed by Glamglow’s newest product. It works, but it isn’t the best lip plumper out there. Another issue with it (other then the stinging pain) is the applicator. It was a little confusing on how to get the wand out. It also has a plastic end, not a sponge, so it’s hard to get the product out. I wouldn’t “Ginger Approve” this one, but I would give 3 out of 5 stars.
If you would like to purchase Plumprageous you can find it at Sephora for $24.00. Let me know what you think if you try it. What are your favorite lip plumpers?
