Review: Hard Candy Plumping Serum Volumizing Lip Gloss - Nude Beach

What is it?
Plumping Serum lip gloss will give you the biggest, sexiest lips possible without a doctor's visit. Sheer color, outrageous shine.  - Hard Candy website.

Price: $4.80 - $8 available at Walmart.

My thoughts: I adore the packaging of this lip gloss, it's so girly and fun! The sponge tip applicator is easy to use. I've never owned anything that would "volumize" my lips because I happen to have a very full lips already, hehe. So when I received this to try out, I was really excited to see the outcome.  The color is a beautiful sheer shimmery color, with very little pay off, which is perfect for a nude lip. The consistency and texture is a little bit sticky and a little bit thick. I feel a light tingling sensation when the lip gloss is on. This sensation usually last anywhere between 2-4 hours. This color can be worn over your lipstick or alone. I really like to wear it alone because it makes my lips look like it has this beautiful healthy pout to it. The plumping part is very minimal, as far as I can tell. I've done some before and after pictures so you can see what I mean. Overall, I think this is a good lip gloss, but not a plumper.

Have you guys tried these?
