I recently went on a makeup course with MUFE and got myself some goodies, namely a face2 concealer and a lip-gloss from TheBalm. I’m usually rubbish at buying lip-gloss, I tend to look at them in the store but just can’t muster up the enthusiasm to make a purchase, but Plump your Pucker lip-gloss by TheBalm spoke to me!
‘Formulated with a special combination of menthol and vitamin C’, they are supposed to ‘increase circulation to the lips and reduce the look of fine lines. A special ingredient, Maxi-lip, works cumulatively to hydrate lips, making them look fuller.’ Now that’s a mouth full and I’m not exactly 100% sure what all that means. But this lip-gloss is one of those tingly ones that feels weirdly lovely when you first put it on, which I guess makes your lips feel bigger. I’m not totally convinced it makes my lips look any bigger but it does make me pout more, so maybe it does work?
Available in about 10 – 11 shades, I bought cherry my cola, which initially I thought related to the colour, and maybe it does, but this lip gloss tastes of Cherry Cola, or cola cubes (if you’re old enough to remember them) and is kind of yummy. Retail price €11, not being a big purchaser of lip gloss I don’t know it that’s good value or not! It has an old school lip-gloss wand, but really I prefer a lip-gloss in a tube as it’s more hygienic, but I can cope with taking some off the wand on to the back of my hand and applying it with a lip brush instead.
