The packaging looks similar to the big boys, however after a week of two tubes lying in a makeup case, they leaked everywhere. The “gold” finish on the handle began wearing off immediately. Not big complaints, but they are worth noting.
The tingling was not extreme, actually it was quite pleasant. Smooch partners did not have their lips lit on fire, either (which is always a bonus). Application is via a small brush (similar to a nail polish brush). The lip gloss is quite sticky, texture is overwhelmingly fluid, and the scent is fruity. Thankfully, the gloss did wear off quickly. Don’t waste your money on the “tinted” versions as they all apply clear.
The lip treatment did seem to plump up fine lines in lips a small amount, and the extreme shine took focus away from fine lines.
Sally Hansen Lip Inflation is available at Walgreens (for $6.49).
Overall, Bionic felt this lip plumper fell limp.
