Puckered Up Perfection

So does this gloss do what it says? Did it inflate my lips and turn me into a pouting goddess? Not at all. Did it perform awesomely as a great smelling long lasting lip gloss? It sure did! Next time I need to stock up on a lip plumper I'll go back to my trusted favorite but for just a basic lip gloss, this one did the trick and it would make a nice gift!

Use

I added this to my wishlist when I ran out of my usual go to lip plumping gloss and figured I'd try something new. The color that I was assigned is called Tremble and it's a very sheer sparkling Pink that could be worn alone or over lipstick. I didn't seem to notice much plumping action but it ended up being a great gloss!

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

Kissaholic's lip gloss is a thicker lip gloss than some however it still isn't sticky or tacky and doesn't get that way at any point while wearing it. That's probably what impressed me the most. I didn't find that I had to reapply very often and when it does wear out over the course of the day, it just thins out rather than completely drying out your lips. It stayed in place and didn't drip off of my lips at all!
    • Slick
    • Smooth
    • Thin

Taste / Aroma

I loved the frosted peppermint smell that this lip gloss has. I don't know how strong the other scents are because I was only assigned Tremble but it has a very strong smell to it. The taste isn't bad, a little bit waxy and you can taste peppermint and a little bit of cinnamon but the taste is definitely not as strong as the smell!
    • Light taste
    • Smells good
    • Strong smell

Performance

Like I mentioned earlier, the performance of this lip gloss is what sold it for me. Did it plump my lips up? No. Did it perform awesomely? Yes! It stayed put for a few hours before I felt that it had thinned out enough that I needed to reapply it. When I did reapply it I didn't need much and it stayed slick and not sticky which is a big plus for me because a sticky and tacky lip gloss never feels nice.
    • Long lasting

Packaging

The packaging for this is pretty standard and basic but pretty. Kissaholic's lip gloss comes packaged in a box but upon opening the box I found that the tube of lip gloss wasn't as big as the box it was held in. I've included a picture to show you what I mean. A cardboard insert was at the bottom of the box to hold the tube up higher when it was in it's packaging so I didn't realize it was a smaller tube until I removed it from the box. Still a decent average sized lip gloss, I just wanted to point it out and include a picture of both the lip gloss and the packaging.
    • Does not leak
    • Easy to use / dispense
    • Would make a nice gift

Special Features

I wasn't sure what to expect from this lip gloss. Some plumping glosses cool, some warm and others just sting! This gloss really feels cool when you put it on but that's where the sensations stop. It doesn't tingle and it doesn't warm or sting, it just gives you a strong and cool feeling that lasts for the first 15 minutes and goes unnoticed after that. I still wouldn't recommend using it if your lips were really dry or chapped because the peppermint is strong enough that it would most likely sting! The ingredients in this lip gloss are listed as:
Mineral Oil, Polybutene, Butylene/Ethylene/Styrene Copolymer, Flavor (Aroma), Caprylyl Glycol, Isopentyldiol, Menta Arvensis leaf Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Tocopheryl Acetate, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Capsicum Frutescens Fruit Extract, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Zingiber Officinale (Ginger) Root Oil, Methyl Nicotinate, Castor Oil Bis-Hydroxypropyl Dimethicone Esters, Sodium Saccharin, Ethyl Methane Caroxamide, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Phenylethylamine, Ptychopetalum Olacoides Bark Extract, Isohexadecane, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract, Turnera Diffusa Leaf Extract, Passiflora Incarnata Flower Extract, Zingiber Officinale (Ginger) Root Powder, Phenoxyethanol, Benzyl Benzoate, Geraniol, Benzyl Alcohol, Benzyl Salicylate, Eugenol, Esoeugenol, Linalool, Cinnamil, Limonene. May contain: (+/-) Mica, Titanium Dioxide (Cl 77891), Iron Oxides (Cl 77 ).
Kissaholic's lip gloss is hypoallergenic, edible and paraben free!
    • Cooling
Follow-up commentary
Would I pay full price for this lip gloss? Probably not when I can get one of my favorite plumping lip glosses that actually plumps. However, if this goes on sale again I'll probably get another color because as far as a long lasting lip gloss, this one was great!
