Physicians Formula Plump Potion Lip Plumping Cocktail

Take precaution – this product has INTENSE plumping power! If you are not used to a strong plumping formula, please beware. Your lips will be tingling/stinging for awhile at first. Once you get used to the product, you won’t feel it so much. The formula felt like it had a bit of a drying effect on my lips. Once the tingling and numbness wore off, my lips felt dry and sort of chapped. I’ve only used it a few times and I’m not sure if it will be one of my faves but it definitely does what it’s supposed to do!

Sticky but long lasting

Siobhan Hughes

I received this plumping gloss to review and was pretty darned excited – I love plumping lip products!

I have the slightly pink shade, and I won’t lie, I opened the package almost immediately to test it out.

It smells nice, tastes slightly minty and is very very sticky. Too sticky in fact. I do prefer my glosses to have a slightly more ‘buttery’ texture so that they feel moisturising too, but this didn’t deter me.

After a while, the gloss starts to tingle very slightly, in a pleasant way.

I don’t think that it definitely plumped up my lips, but it made them FEEL more pouty, and the high shine definitely does make my lips look and feel slightly fuller.

While I didn’t enjoy how sticky the gloss is, it lasts for absolute ages on the lips, which I did really like. Due to this, it’s become my makeup bag staple, and is always with me in case I forget a lipstick or other gloss for the day!

It smells like anesthetic. Feels smooth when I put it on my lips. Opens really easily, packaging is nice and clear so I can actually see what is inside. It burned my eyes and lips. Suppose to make my lips plump and actually no one has noticed the difference, I have a small mouth and thin lips and no one has noticed the plumpness. Any skin type can use it as the colour would suit all skin colour types. Would suit younger girls as they are more into the pouting game. I will never taste or lick it as I know my tongue will sting, the burning lasts about half an hour which is a no no, no I would not recommend to anyone, I like the colour but not the burning and stinging. So this product is a no go for me.
