Drugstores are a sort of twilight zone for me. I can never just go in and get out. I always have to go through the makeup section, and send at least 30 mins. I love makeup that much. Unfortunately, this often results in a lot of unpremeditated spending, and the day I walked away with this lipgloss fatty is no exception. NYC Plumping Lipgloss is what happens when you take a normal sized lipgloss to the register, and he or she says, “You wanna supersize that?” and you say “Why, yes. Yes I would.” You know…before that became illegal. This thing is literally jumbo size. It’s way too big to be a lipgloss, but what can I say? I’m into that. SUPERSIZE ME.
I bought this for some lip plump action because, as I’ve already implied, bigger is sometimes better in my book. Did it plump? Not really. But for $3.99, I can’t say I was surprised. It does have a great, cool, tingling thing going on that I love. It also has a thick creamy lipgloss consistency without being sticky. The colors I got are also super beautiful: Colossal Cacao and Plumped Plum. The Colossal Cacao, LOL, makes a beautiful highlight in the center of the top and bottom lips. Plumped Plum is a really pretty my lip-but-deeper-and-therefore-better gloss. It has a subtle glitter that gives a gorgeous high-shine without looking like the my-first-lipgloss-ever shade I used to sneak on the playground in fifth grade. (I tried to get my lipgloss poppin’ way too early).
It can be a bit messy. I don’t like the smell at all, it’s a little balmy. Too much comes out when you pull the applicator out, and you have to scrape the excess off. Mess. It also doesn’t plump. That’s pretty significant. BUT, for $3.99 it was pretty and creamy enough to keep.
Not nightmare. Lol. Not dream either, so I probably won’t buy other colors. I may repurchase Colossal Cacao because it’s that pretty, but otherwise I could do without.
What’s your favorite lip plumping gloss?
