Kissaholic aphrodisiac infused plumping lip gloss - sensual bath by Booty Parlor - review by Adriana Ravenlust

I Don't Think I Want to Kiss Anyone With This On..

Booty Parlor always attracts me with its minimal packaging and fancy fonts, but the smells really turn me off. This product is not exceptional even though this gloss feels okay and gives my lips nice shine.

extremely useful review
I bought the Kissaholic aphrodisiac infused plumping lip gloss with hopes for a gloss that I would enjoy the appearance up. I hoped for low-stick, high-gloss and any plumping would be an extra perk.

The lip gloss tube comes in a narrow cardboard box, which I quickly disposed of. The tube itself is nothing to remark about; although, the cap/handle end seems a little shorter than on comparable tubes. It wasn't short enough to make it difficult to hold or apply.

After unscrewing the wand, I was met with a thin, bristled brush that had solidified over time. After using it, the brush, it has softened, but I don't know that the bristled brush is better than the fuzzy, angled wand that you would normally expect with lip gloss. It works well enough, and the spread helps you get a larger coverage area than you might otherwise get, however.

The gloss itself is rather opaque in the tube for the passion fruit scent. The color is something of a middle ground between pink and nude. My lips look glossy and a muted pink, but the color is more sheer on my lips than in the tube. It's not bad in appearance, but I also feel as though it's not anything really special. On the package, this shade is called "Sigh."

I really don't notice a serious plumping effect, but the gloss does tingle on my lips, which is typical for plumping glosses. Others noticed this more, so your mileage may vary. Your partner might not like this sensation on his or her lips, but I didn't notice that my fingers felt the same warmth and tingling after touching my mouth. This is a temporary sensation that lasts about ten minutes. It eventually goes away, leaving you with just a glossy pout.

The ingredients that lead to this feeling are "Chili Fruit and Ginger Root." I imagine that's why my lips felt the way they do. However, this product has no parabens.

The texture of this gloss is thick and sticky -- normal for gloss. I don't mind how it feels on my lips. The gloss actually lasts quite some time -- a few hours -- without needing to be reapplied. I like this aspect of the lip gloss. Booty Parlor adds shea butter and vitamin E to moisturize, and I have to admit that this gloss doesn't leave my lips feeling chapped like so many others. I don't feel the need to wipe it off and grab the chapstick.

Unfortunately, I rather dislike the smell. I figured I'd be safe if I picked the smell that I would like the best. I went with passion fruit;although, vanilla pomegranate might have been more up my alley, but it was out of stock when I ordered. All of Booty Parlor's products have this weird smell as though the ingredients were all sitting in a warehouse as it burned. It's smokey, heavy and just plain weird. There's a generic sweetness to this that doesn't work when partnered with the smokeyness. I hope the other scents are better because this is nothing at all like the passion fruit you might expect. The smokey smell fades more quickly than the sweet, but I'd rather have an unscented product than one that I don't really like.

I'm just not over the moon for this one.

    The description of the smell is really off-putting. I wonder why they chose an applicator like a brush.
