Sally Hansen is in vogue these days. I am already impressed by its nail and cuticle cream, so I was looking for some other fantastic products. Then, I heard about Lip Inflation Extreme Lip Gloss. I read that it gives bee-stung lips, specifically saying “Angelina Jolie lips.” Who doesn’t want them, moreover that sounds so innovative and surprising, so I went for the product.
Sally Hansen Lip Inflation Lip Gloss will give you the biggest, sexiest lips possible without a doctor’s visit. Micro-spheres with exclusive Hydro-Collagen Complex help boost fullness and shine to the extreme. Spicy gloss enhances lips natural color so they appear pinker, healthier, and fuller. Guaranteed visible results. Dermatologist tested.

My Experience with Sally Hansen Lip Inflation Extreme – Sheer Cherry:
Lip inflation extreme lip gloss comes in a long transparent tube with golden cap. The shade is easily visible from the transparent bottle, so easy to choose. The shade number is mentioned at the base. The applicator is soft and smooth. The product has a strong smell of cinnamon. It reminds me of cinnamon bakery products I had in Netherlands, so it pleases me. This is the miraculous ingredient which is behind the inflation thing. Cinnamon is a natural lip enhancer. When I applied it for the first time, I could really feel the mild bee sting effect. It will cause tingling effect on your lips for quite some time. After a couple of minutes, you will feel normal. Do not apply over cracked lips, it may irritate the lips.
It moisturizes the lips and gives volume and shine to the lips. The good part is that it is non sticky. The product is neither too thick nor too thin over the lips. It can be applied over a lipstick as well. The thin coat gives almost transparent effect while thick coat gives out the actual colour. Hence it serves dual purpose. The shade has very light pigmentation. The thin coat looks almost transparent. It has very minute shimmer which looks really superb. It has exact quantity and type of shimmer which one looks for.
It stays for 3-4 hours. They have mentioned to reapply after every three hours, but it keeps lips hydrated up to 5-6 hours. The shade will suit most of the beauties. The product is not up to the hyped Angelina’s lip claim, but is otherwise good.
