I received a free sample of this lip plumper. So as I was applying makeup 5 minutes before I had to leave the house, I gave it a try. I not only applied it to my lip, but to the outer skin surrounding my lips. Well, my lips started burning and before I knew it they were very red. Not only my lips, but the skin surrounding them. I looked like a freakin clown! with swollen lips. :cursing:

So then I read the warning on the back - apply only to perimeter of lip - if applied on skin redness may occur.

I used foundation to cover the redness and by the time I got home, 2 hrs later, they were back to normal.

My review - this product works but be careful! I won't try it again though.:sweatdrop:

^ I had the same reaction from it! :tdown:

That's pretty much how all those "plumpers" work, though. They cause irritation, which leads to temporary swelling. I don't like the idea, and I don't like the results, so I pretty much steer clear now.

I can't even say how many of these I have bought - Lip Fusion, Lip Venon, etc., etc., lips sting with all of them - I don't really see a difference at all. I think it just stimulates the blood flow/pressure to the lips but I still don't see anything...

Have a look at the ingredients before trying them on next time. Anything with chili pepper, cinnamon, or the like, will sting sharply. Lip Injection has this listed as an ingredient.

I have it and continue to buy. LOL I love it. However, i try not to get on my face because then it looks like someone has scratched me all over. Its fun but only for 15 minutes. Then I have to reapply. I know its silly, but it makes my lips so gorgeous

Ugh, I do not like too faced as a brand and I hate lip plumpers! I think too faced is overpriced for the products that they make, and their products IMO are not that good. I think this lip plumper is their best product, and that's not saying a lot, since almost every line has a lip plumper. My lips are pretty full as it is, but, I recieved a lip plumper in a B.E. kit one time and didn't realize that it was a plumper and not a reg. lip gloss. I tried it and it had a horible sensation on my lips! I know it's because of the chili peppers in most of them that agitate the lips and cause the plumping effect, but I really think lip plumpers are a waste of $. It only stays on the lips for the desired effect for about 20 mins max before you have to reapply. And, the bottles you prucase of it are about $15-20 for about .15 an oz! Again, very overpriced! I just never understood all of the people who came into Sephora when I worked there to purchase too faced and duWop's plummpers. Most of the time, peoples natural lips are perfect!!

The same thing happened to me! I got a sample of it and it started to burn like crazy about 45 seconds after I put it on. I thought it would go away but by a minute and a half it was burning so badly I rushed to get tissue to wipe it off. The skin around my lips was red too, and it took about 2 days for it to get back to normal. Never again, the stuff is garbage, which is where the sample went. :tdown::tdown:
