theBalm Plump Your Pucker Tinted Gloss in Passion My Fruit Review

Having already large and luscious lips, I was wary that this lip gloss would not look so great on me. The color does look kinda scary in the tube already, but alas I had a pleasant result :)

Here is the tube:

I forgot to take a picture but it has a doe foot applicator. Here are the swatches:

Sephora describes this color as a sheer sparkly mauve. They also say:

Formulated with a special combination of folic acid, menthol, and vitamin C, these sexy glosses increase blood flow to the lips and reduce the look of fine lines. But the lip building benefits have only just begun! An additional ingredient, MaxiLip, works cumulatively to encourage lasting fullness. Be prepared for a poutier pucker after 30 days!

Hopefully you can see in the picture all of the little glitters there are in this gloss. I don't mind the glitters but I do have to note that they stay on after you wipe the gloss off.

I love how this leaves a light berry color on my lips, nothing like what it looks like in the tube. I didn't experience any drying of my lips, but not necessarily much moisturizing effect either. It didn't give me that weird tingling feeling that some plumping lip glosses give, thank god, but I did feel like my lips looked a teeny bit plumper. I'm glad my lips didn't look like I got lip injections, but I'd love to know how this would look on much smaller lips than mine. The gloss isn't sticky and lasts about 3-5 hours. Overall I love this lip gloss and recommend it :)

    1. Lol, As far as limp plumping I think too faced as the market on the plumpiest lip glosses, but I can't stand the tingling feeling from those.
