ELF Plumping Lip Glaze Review...

Sunday 25 July 2010

Everyone strives for that perfect puckered pout, that only movie stars and cosmetic surgery lovers can achieve. A few years ago lip products with ingredients that were designed especially to irritate lips to make them appear larger came on the market. ELF's version of these 'miracle' lip glosses is ELF Plumping Lip Glaze.

Pretttyy, isn't it? :)

For just £1.50, this claims-

'Forget costly Collagen injections, or those painfully stinging glosses, stimulate your senses to a refreshed full perfect pout with e.l.f. Plumping Lip Glaze! e.l.f. proudly presents a revolutionary lip plumper, infusing Natural ingredients that awaken your senses for fresh, volume enhanced, and moisturized lips. This dual sided Plumping Lip Glaze has a tinted color for a subtle plump or a clear gloss that power plumps your lips, use together and instantly feel the lip enlarging effects!'

But does it actually plump up your lips, I think it's experiment time...

Please excuse my yellow teeth, my mum refuses to let me whiten them :/

This is the 'before' picture, my normal lips. Add lashings of the white side of the lip gloss and leave to 15 minutes, et voila...

Hmmm. Can you see a difference? While 'developing' the lip gloss created a not unpleasant tingling feeling, which also felt fresh and kind of toothpastey? I'm guessing this is whatever irritant ingredient it has in it working. Maybe there was some difference in the size of my lips, I think they look slightly plumper, but its not altogether noticeable.

Add the pink lip gloss side and what happens...?

Slightly plumper? Possibly. What do you think?

The pink side of the tube is very sheer and doesn't present much colour, although I think overall it gave a very pretty effect, even if it was a little sticky.

I'm reasonably happy with this product, has anyone else tried it, what do you think?

Have a good week bloggettes!


  1. Don't see much of a difference :P

  2. I like it. check out the blog award I gave you! :) XX

  3. I think we put the placebo effect and tell our selves it works because it tingles, i think it does a bit but not lasting unforchantly :/

  4. i don't use it, but i do know it sells very well, especially at such a cheap price. how long have you been using it? i can't tell if it's working.


  5. i like it! i want to try it if it's available in the states.

  6. I haven't tried any ELF lip products and doubt I'll try the plumping one as I used a similar effect one of my sisters and it turned my lips purple/blue - strange!
    I bought ELF's warm bronzer and blush/bronzer contouring kit recently and I haven't stopped using them! So worth £3.50! xx

  7. I think I can see some plumping action going on there :p
    I love the colour x
