Hello all IMBBians!
Here I’m with a review of Sally Hansen’s Lip Inflation Extreme in shade Sheer Pink.
Sally Hansen is already on top with their great Nail products and now I have become a crazy fan of their Lip products too after using this lip inflation gloss
What does it claim?
Dare to compare! Refreshingly tingly gloss instantly inflates lips. Ginger and Cinnamon help stimulate and plump lips. Peppermint provides lips with a cooling and stimulating sensation. Lips become flushed and plump instantly for a sexy, pouty look that lasts. Guaranteed Visible Results. Dermatologist Tested.
It promises to give you that Angelina Jolie lips! Now who doesn’t want it?
How to use it?
Apply a generous amount over the entire lip area. You may experience a slight tingle. Can be worn alone or over your favorite lip product. Apply as needed.
My take on Sally Hansen Lip Inflation Extreme – Sheer Pink :
Firstly, I have very thin and small lips and so far no lip product made my lips appear plump. So when I came to know that this gives you plumpy lips, I was totally sold! Almost all shades look nearly same in the pack, but they really differ in pigmentation. These come in a sturdy transparent plastic packaging with a golden screw cap which really looks gorgeous 😀 The brush is perfect for applying the gloss even on thin lips.
Coming to the product, it is actually a very beautiful baby pink gloss which is super shiny. It really inflates your lips as per the claims – I say this because I have very thin lips and even my lips look plumpy 😀 It gives a tingling sensation on your lips due to the cinnamon and mint in it and has a cool bubblegum smell – the boomer smell..Yummmm.. Also it has a sweet taste in the beginning of application.
The shine this gives to your lips lasts for nearly 2 hours and starts fading later, but still you have the gloss on your lips for a good time of 6 hours without eating (though it can stand light snacking and a cup of coffee – I’m an ardent lover of coffee :P) This gloss gives intense moisture to lips which stays for a good time of 8-9 hours without eating. I really love this part of the product.
But this has one big downside – it is very sheer and if you have pigmented lips, this doesn’t cover the pigmentation. If you try going overboard with 3 or 4 coats, then you would end up with unusual artificial awkward lips.
So in short you get: 2 hours – immense shine and plumpy lips, 3-4 hours – lesser shine but the lips still remain plumpy, keeps your lips moisturized for a good time of 8-9 hours.
Why I Love Sally Hansen Lip Inflation Extreme – Sheer Pink :
• Inflates your lips well
• Gives a wonderful shine for atleast 2 hours
• The shine fades but a minimal shine stays on your lips for 3-4 hours
• Moistures your lips well for atleast 8 hours
• Gorgeous and royal packaging
• Beautiful shades available
Why I hate Sally Hansen Lip Inflation Extreme – Sheer Pink :
• Doesn’t give good coverage on pigmented lips
• Very sheer gloss
• Price could be a downside for many
Do I recommend\repurchase Sally Hansen Lip Inflation Extreme – Sheer Pink ?
IMBB Rating: 4.5 out of 5 (-0.5 for the sheerness)
