I purchased the Maybelline Lip Seduction Lip Plumper on a whim. I received both a gloss and a lip color with my purchase. However, generally you only receive just the lip color.
The cost of the lip plumper varies depending upon where you purchase it. I have seen it for as cheap as $3, and as much as $10. Thus I would research pricing prior to purchase if you decide to buy.
It applies very smoothly. The Maybelline Lip Seduction Lip Plumper gives your lips a tingling feeling once applied. The instructions or warning on the product states this is normal. However, as this was my first lip plumper, I am unaware if all lip plumper options have the same effects. The warning states that it is only temporary for the tingling, but I experienced the tingling the entire time I have the lip plumper on.
For me the tingling isn't painful, I'm just not used to it when I'm wearing lip color. To me the tingling is more of a nuisance than anything else. However, it did give me the impression that it was working right away because of the tingle.
Although it did plump my lips a little bit, it wasn't really that big of a difference. So if your looking for something that will make a drastic difference, this isn't the product. On a positive note, the gloss look is great. Not to mention, I haven't had any issues with it drying out my lips.
Overall I wouldn't really recommend the Maybelline Lip Seduction Lip Plumper in order to plump your lips. It offers a tingling feeling that is annoying after a while, and it doesn't really change the plump of your lips that much. However, it does offer a great gloss look.
