I don't buy into the whole lip plumping thing because I'm fine with my lip size, but that won't stop me from trying out beautiful shades.
Since I'm trying to put myself on a makeup ban of sorts (no new makeup unless it's a freebie or a really need a spare)... I only had the opportunity to try out the Buxom Full On Lip Polish because it was a sample that I picked out. It's the shade Dolly and it's described as the perfect mauve color. Which is actually perfect as I'm totally into purples lately and mauves are my best friend since it's a great transition.
But again, I've never tried anything lip plumping, I've been told stories of stinging pain so that's what I expected when I first tried this on. It couldn't have been farther from the truth (at least for me). Of course, before I even noticed the color of the gloss, I noticed the plumping sensation. It's minty, a strong mint, which I'm in love with, and it's very cooling, which is another plus. I got a little funny tingly sensation after a bit, but it's not bad at all.
As for color, it's sheer, but with layering or just being generous with the gloss, it will be more like the color in the tube. That's another plus all around for me because when I try out "scary" bold colors, I can just dip my feet in the water before I get comfortable to go all in.
As for actually lip plumping, I don't notice any difference so it might be slightly plumping. Either way, I love it so far, as I got ahead of myself and already bought the summer set of glosses.
And as always, I will update you on any changed opinions as time goes on...
