Avon Plump Pout Lip Gloss
Advantages: Its a lovley gloss
Disadvantages: I didnt think it made my lips look any different
I bought this lip gloss in the nude shade, without actually ready the blurb in the catalogue properly. I bought it thinking it was a normal lip gloss and for a sale price of £2.50 didn't think that was too bad a price to pay. Lip gloss gets used like there is no tomorrow in my house so I always seem to be buying more and more.
I bought this one and my daughter was the first person to use this, she merrily put it on and after a few minutes, put the gloss in my hand and said 'I think I am allergic to this Mum, it makes my lips feel funny'. I looked at her strangely and put it to one side. Forgetting about it, I first used this before a quick trip to the supermarket a few days later, you can pretty much see the supermarket from my house, but I noticed a slight tingle as I was walking through the doors of the shop. I went into the toilets and examined my lips in the mirror (I don't know if I was expecting my face to have been eaten away or something) I noticed no difference in my reflection, so took the gloss out of my bag and while reading the tube, kept looking back at my reflection. A young girl stood next to me and after noticing I was acting oddly, asked me if I was ok. Embarrassed I explained that my lips were tingling and it may be because I was using a new lip gloss. She looked at the tube in my hand and helpfully explained that this was in fact a lip plump lip gloss and it was designed with cinnamon in the product that tingles your lips while it makes them appear plumper. Feeling foolish, I thanked her did my shopping and returned home dragging my plump tingly lips with me.
Now I understand the workings of the gloss, I do have to give it a glowing review. The colour I bought, isn't really a colour, it just gives my lips a shiny look, rather like clear gloss does. The gloss itself is very shiny and wet looking, but it doesn't feel sticky or gloopy at all. The cinnamon is quite off putting if like my daughter and I, you have no idea that it is meant to do this. Now I am aware of its powers, I do smile to myself every time I feel it working. I wouldn't say it makes my lips look a lot different really, my daughter wears it from time to time and she doesn't look that different either. It is a lovely gloss to use although it doesn't last a very long time, you will end up having to re-apply this quite frequently, especially if you are eating or drinking with it on.
I am not sure the full price this is sold for but I still think the £2.50 I paid for it is a suitable price, I don't think I would pay a higher price than this.
Summary: A good gloss in general but doesnt last a long time
