Review: ELF Plumping Lip Glaze in Baby Doll +

Lots of lip product reviews lately - Sorry if you're tired of staring at my lips, lol. I promise more diversity coming in the near future! ;) Also added Peach Colada review to my previous entry in case you were wondering about the color on the lips!

Onwards to the review!

ELF plumping lip glaze baby doll

*~REVIEW~*


*Description (from the E.L.F. site)*

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!

---

Still can't find deals like this anywhere! Again, $1!!! Drives me crazy with happiness. The double sided wand lets you select whether or not you want super plump lips or just semi-plump lips:

After reading the review on the site, I thought sure no problem! No painful stinging! I generously lathered some of the white plumper on my lips = instant STING! LOL. Albeit, it was nice and minty, but it kind of burns your lips a little. Nothing I couldn't handle and it wasn't painful, but if your lips are sensitive BE WARNED! Thankfully, it subsides in a bit and you are free to apply the other side of the gloss.

I didn't notice major plumping; my lips are already kind of pillow-y so it was hard to tell for sure if they poofed up or not. After looking for awhile, I concluded that there was a minor plumping effect on both the top and bottom lips.

Baby Doll is a very pretty, subtle color with a hint of pink and tiny silver sparkles. Again, I'm the type of person that doesn't like things on her lips, and this was just fine -- it wasn't too sticky and it lasted a few hours!

Pros: Mild-moderate plumping effect, pretty & versatile color, wears for at least a few hours, not too sticky/tacky, very affordable
Cons: Definite stinging/possible irritation, not as pigmented
(but it isn't really meant to be very pigmented, as it is described as a tinted lip color), Applicator a little stiff

Rating: (4/5)

I'm not sure how often I'd actually wear the plumper side of the product, but the glaze itself is lovely and I will definitely repurchase. For this price, it is a STEAL!

For all you foodies out there, RESTAURANT.COM is running a promotion where you can buy some of their awesome gift certificates (save $25 off of a $45 meal after 18% gratuity automatically added - still a pretty sweet deal) - for only $2!!! Usually, they are like $10 for a $25 gift certificate. Just use the coupon code COOK at checkout! My family and I always stock up during these sales, hehe...

I love Dim Sum Sundays at home! My Mom is the BEST COOK EVER - homemade "Pei-Don Jook" with crunchy bread (I can't spell out the Chinese name, it translates something like "straight oil"?!)

Can't forget dash of Maggi & white pepper!

sophia said...

OMG I had that donut with porridge before, only once, and it was magical!! I'm so impressed that your mom can make all that! You're so lucky :)

And I've used restaurant.com like 10 times ~ I love that site! Haven't gotten any new coupons in awhile, so this is a good reminder!

I love ELF $1 stuff too.. have you tried the luscious liquid lipstick in the Bark color? It's like my fav product from them! I like the color of the plumping one you got, but my skin is ultrasensitive so I definitely couldn't use this >.<

Love the review on a very affordable prodcut...I'm just starting to experiment with makeup so it definitely helps to see beauty bloggers review stuff that's so affordable! I love your blog and layout - so clean and professional looking.

I'm telling you..you keep making me wanting to get my hand on those lippies review you keep on doing..hehehe I love it...!

Serena said...

You may think I'm a piggy but the first thing that caught my eye was... $2 coupon for restaurant.com??!?!?! I hope it's still going on. HEAVEN!! I LOVE FOOD. Thank you for sharing. I am going to try to stock up on this. I think this site is great for trying out new restaurants. =]

I don't mind all your lip product reviews. It's kind of nice. I've never been much of a lip product person so reading/seeing reviews is making me more willing to try some. I think your lips look sexy.

I've always called the crunchy bread thing a Chinese doughnut. But it's straight and not a circle. It is kind of a doughnut though if you think about how its made. =P


<3 Serena.

xbbkay said...

the BLACK PEARl , My Beauty Diary mask is suppose to be really good. From the research i've done, it's one of the most popular. i WOULD tear that package apart now if i weree you. LOL

i don't exacly have hook up. I have to wait until my friend goes back to home (china) for summer vacation. I wont get the sheets until she comesback here to CAD, which is in SEPT. :(...so i guess i'l jus have to suffer heavy shipping cost for now. hehe

Stephanie said...

oh my gosh i've never had homemade crunchy bread. it's my favorite guilty pleasure. so friggin greasy, haha

aisyah De Cullen said...

If the ELF lip glaze makes my lips like yours, I'd buy it! XD
I didn't realised I was supposed to expect a certain plumping effect (physically) on the lips when using a lip plumper..LOL
Bought Etude House lip plumper which is pricier than ELF ones (U__U) but it doesn't work! Screw cute packaging that lures people.
I recommend Maybelline XL lip plumper (I'm not sure of the name. try google it). I tried my sis's once and it was love at first touch! Haha..
