I am a lipstick girl. I have a drawer full of lip glosses I never touch. The poor things were abandoned almost entirely years ago. But, I do love lip products (almost as much as I love nail polish) so I was excited to try out a new product from POP Beauty; Plump Pout.
POP beauty calls this a lip perfecter. Admittedly, I love the packaging. It’s a flattened lip gloss tube with a rubber top. Because the packaging is wide, instead of long, the applicator is shorter than your average lip product. This allows for more control and easier application.
When I put this on for the first time I was worried it was going to be a sticky mess as POP beauty claims this is a high shine product. I was pleasantly surprised when it had a lovely creamy, moisturizing texture. It feels smooth and comfortable on the lips. Even a bit luxurious.
The finish is shiny but it’s not overly shiny as the formula contains no glitter. I’m someone who doesn’t like alot of shine on my lips. I like a light sheen and sometimes I do top a lipstick with a glitter free gloss and I found I liked the amount of shine I get from this product.
The Plump Pout products come with 2 major claims.
- Plumping: I didn’t find that this actually plumped the lips. Yes, my lips look fuller because I have on a gloss, but I didn’t notice any plumping action beyond that.
- Long Wearing: This didn’t wear any longer than other glosses but it did leave behind a slight stain. So while the shine did wear off the color has a bit of staying power.
The pigmentation of this product is pretty fabulous. It’s not quite as opaque as a lipstick but it does give the lips a good amount of color. Fuchsia Freesia is a bright medium pink. It’s a great color for cool toned skintones. There is a swatch below the jump.
One thing I do love in lip products is a nice scent. This one has a sweet vanilla scent that I quite like. There is no noticeable taste.
Overall, I like this product quite a bit. Fuchsia Freesia is a perfect color for my skintone and this has turned into my go to option when I don’t want to wear full on lipstick.
Below the jump there are additional pictures of the packaging as well as a swatch. I’ve turned into quite the POP Beauty junky. You can check out my POP Beauty nail polish reviews over on The Daily Varnish. I also reviewed an eyeshadow palette. That review can be found here.
I discovered POP Beauty on Hautelook (which is where I’ve purchased all my previous POP Beauty products) but POP Beauty is also available at Ulta.
