Advantages: nice packaging, refreshing, looks nice on
Disadvantages: expensive, not easy to find, no plumping action
I have no idea why this brand was discontinued as it was very attractive and a lot of their products where actually very good.
I bought this lip gloss with a bunch of other products quite a long time ago. To be honest I wasn't really looking for a plumping effect as my lips are quite full but plumping products where very popular at the time and I wanted to see what the fuss was all about.
The gloss comes in very attractive packaging: an air bag decorated with a lacy balk design and a little ribbon on top. It looks more feminine than girly which I very much liked about the pout brand in general. The air bag also makes it safe to order online without worrying about the product getting damaged in transit. Although I bought mine from the store but since you can probably only get it from ebay now, it's a nice feature.
Inside was a 10 ml squeezy tube with the same lacy design on the sides that looks very elegant. The tube has a black cap and the top of the gloss is a plastic slightly smaller tube that is cut diagonally with a little opening for the gloss to squeeze out. This makes it easier to apply evenly as it works a lot like a lip stick.
I think mine is the original as it doesn't have any colour name displayed on it. It's a medium fleshy tone. When it is applied it gives a slight tint and a very nice shine. It smells of peppermint and as soon as you apply it you feel a tingle all over your lips that lasts for a few minutes. I have to admit though I didn't see any noticeable change in plumpness and I have been using it for quite a while. I never used it regularly though and never 3 times a day as they suggest. But I did use it at least once a day almost every day for more than a month and didn't notice any difference. It is very refreshing though and looks nice on your lips. I also find it hydrates your lips and you might not need a lip balm or chap stick when using it. It is sticky though and you might feel your lips sticking together when you speak. I notices it doesn't last on long either but I can say that about most glosses.
Overall it's a nice little treat if you give up on the plumping thing.
Summary: Works well as gloss and moisturizer but not much plumping
