Now, I've never used a lip plumper. It feels more than a little bizarre. It has a tingling, burning sensation, that wears off after awhile but is quite annoying while it lasts. As I've never tried any other plumpers I can't say if this effect is better/worse/the same as other plumpers. I can't say that my lips looked at all plumper while wearing the gloss.
I have the shades Nude, Pink Sugar, Candy Pink and Shocking Pink.
The glosses are well pigmented and non-sticky, and have a smooth finish. The colours are buildable. They have a doe-foot applicator.
These glosses lasted on me until I ate/drank, but without eating or drinking they lasted a considerable time on my lips (especially for a gloss). I'd say that it had been around three hours before it started to wear.
Nude is definitely my favourite colour so far. The rest are a little too pink for me, but Nude is perfect for an everyday minimal make-up look.

Overall, I think these lip glosses are great for the price, if you can stand the stinging effect. If you're into highly pigmented pink gloss then these are definitely for you! I don't feel that they made my lips plumper, but to be quite honest I don't think I'd have liked it if they had.
Have you ever tried a lip plumper? What did you think?
