Too Faced Company Lip Injection Mask
Advantages: Plumps, Great value for money.
Disadvantages: A little messy to use, Cannot be reapplied whilst out.
With relatively full lips naturally, even I am not entirely sure why I waste so much time and money trying out lip plumping products.., but I do and at least it gives me something to review! From Avon's Pout Plump, to MAC's Plushglass I thought I had tried them all but on a visit to a Boots store I noticed that the "Too Faced" display had a different type of plumper that I hadn't tried before - "Intensive Plumping Lip Mask".
Packaged in a white 40g pot with a pretty pink label and a black screw top lid, this product retailed for around £13.00 if I recall correctly (I don't remember the exact price) and comes complete with a small black spatula which you use to apply the mixture to the lips. It calls itself an 'extreme lip plumping treatment' and promises to give plump, juicy, fat lips for any occasion. It includes Vitamins A and E to nourish and delay the aging process of the lips and conditions them at the same time with extracts of algae and aloe vera. It also claims that it acts as a lip exfoliator which is great for people like me who always seem to have chapped lips.
I was excited to try and you get a LOT for your money in my opinion so it's great value.
I use generously on clean, dry lips and the spatula included makes it very easy to apply neatly to just the lips themselves (as going outside of the lipline can cause redness and irritation). It has a light pale pink-violet colour and a chalky, pastey texture. I leave the product on for around 5 minutes (it does make the lips tingle a little, but nothing painful or unexpected from these types of products) which is about the time it takes me to do my eye makeup so I apply before doing so and simply wash it off afterwards with a warm flannel. It washes off easily and quickly and leaves no residue on the lips.
Does it work? For me, yes! Although it leaves my lips a bit red and darker looking, it definately plumps them too. The results last for around an hour I would say, though to be honest it's hard to judge. For that reason I wish it was clear and in the more generic lipgloss tube type package so I could reapply it whilst I was out but there are plenty of those types available on the market anyway.
But I like how it leaves my lips fuller without the greasy / glossy finish that others leave, and it does exfoliate too as afterwards my lips are very smooth and soft.
Overall, a decent enough product but not a must-have and it would probably be easier to buy the type that you can chuck in your purse for touchups but it does what it says on the tin :-) Smells nice too!
Summary: Though I wish it came in a smaller tub - I'll never use this up!
