Product Review: Lise Watier Plumpissimo Le Gloss

Reviewer: Cinnamon Kitten

Brand: Lise Watier
Name: : Plumpissimo Le Gloss
Size: 6.2 ml / 0.21 US fl oz
Price: $20.00 CAD

Shade Tried: Vintage Peach

Le Plumpissimo Le Gloss is one of Lise Watier's more popular products and the company recently launched 2 new shades:

- Rose: a limpid base that shimmers with tiny, glittering pink flecks
- Vintage Peach: a peach base infused with champagne-coloured micro-glitter

I'm not a fan of lip-plumping products. For one, thin lips were never an issue for me, so I was never excited when these products were first launched, plus I really don't like the tingling sensation that most of these lip-plumpers have, since most of the "lip-plumping" action is provided by ingredients that "stimulate" your lips to plump up. But, I have many friends who are always tempted to try these products, so I definitely like trying them out and letting them know what's going on. :)

To Purr About:
- gloss is light and not sticky
- lovely fruity scent
- the shimmer is incredibly
- I did notice that my lips looked a little more full immediately upon application

Claws Out:
- same, irritating tingling feeling that most other lip plumpers have
- lips weren't "irresistibly plumped"
- brush applicator is kind of thin and short

Final Comments:
As with most other lip plumpers I've tried, this one doesn't significantly plump out lips, and it does have that tingling sensation. I did love the shimmer that this product delivers. I would have preferred a thicker, longer applicator. As a lip gloss, it's lovely, but don't pay this price if you're hoping for it to deliver super-full, plump lips.

Rating (out of 5):

I also tried this product and found that:
- it didn't plump my lips at all really
- the brush applicator made it tricky hard to apply
- & i wished it had a mirror on the side of the container like their other gloss product (with the light built in) had.
