Fuller lips to flaunt that sexy pout, especially for selfies, is the recent trend floating around! Angelina Jolie started it all and Huda Beauty and Kylie Jenner all inspire us. This lip injection lip plumper apparently claims to help us achieve fuller shape and volume without undergoing a cosmetic procedure. This product got me curious and that’s why I picked up Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme.
A lip plumper for immediate satisfaction and long-term results; this is a day-and-night-use serum for lips that appear full and pouty from your very first application and plumper overtime. Inspired by a medically-proven blood vessel dilating technology, Lip Injection Extreme was created to deliver a fuller, plumper lip without the injection, immediately and over time. A serum that makes your lips look plumper using the most scientifically proven and advanced technologies. Too Faced uses a potent quadra-delivery system that combines vitamin E, collagen-friendly MaxiLip, and Dehydrated Marine Sponge to support blood flow, promote a look of fullness, and rehydrate with the body’s own moisture for a long-lasting effect. Moisturizing doses of avocado and jojoba oil condition to ensure a smooth pout.

My Experience with Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme Instant and Long Term Lip Plumper:
Too Faced is known for quite a few products – their “melted” lipsticks, its chocolate bar palettes etc. I was looking for a lip plumper and this one seemed to be worth a try. This is my first product from the “Too Faced” brand.
There are two lip plumpers in this brand – Too Faced Lip Injection and Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme. As the name suggests, “extreme” would probably give better results than the former one. I purchased the Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme from Sephora. There are no shade variants in this range.
The product comes in a regular cardboard box. It comes packed in a regular lip gloss packaging. The gloss inside appears holographic through a transparent bottle/tube. The packaging seems sturdy. I did carry it in my bag a couple of times and there was no leakage. It is quite light and travel friendly. The product details are printed in black on the tube.
The instructions mention that you may experience a slightly intense tingle that can last up to 5 to 10 minutes. The brand also instructs to apply the product only within the perimeter of the lips since a temporary redness may occur if applied on the skin. Okay, so the warnings did make me a little worried and cautious, but then excited too because, hey, makeup killed nobody 😉
The wand is white in color and similar to that of a regular liquid lipstick/gloss; however, the brush applicator is flatter and just a little bigger than a regular wand. This surely makes the application easy. The product is a transparent/clear with a consistency similar to that of a regular thick lip gloss. See the pic below where I have applied it on my hand. It appears completely colorless with no shimmer particles. And hey, there was no tingling or redness on my hand after applying the gloss, so far so good.
Before applying the gloss, I exfoliated my lips to achieve an even application. I do not have thin lips. I am happy that I have kind of full lips; however, this product was still worth trying because we all want that extra pout and volume.
I took a pic of my lips before applying the product. I have not applied any lip color here, hence the pigmentation is apparent. I applied the product evenly to my lips with the wand applicator. It glides effortlessly on the lips. One swipe gives a decent layer of the product on the lips.
Tingling? Oh yes!
Lots? Oh yes!
Did it stop? Not immediately!
The tingling does seem bothering, it’s a slight burning effect, but I would consider it worth it if it’s going to make my lips s*xy. So yes, after a good 5 to 7 minutes, I did feel the tingling reduce and then disappear altogether. My lips felt moisturized and soft too. I took a look in the mirror and voila, they did not look like my lips – this seemed like magic! Trust me, I am quite skeptical about products and how well they work and this is one such product that really does the trick. Eventually, the product does feel comfortable to wear.
See below the pic – after 10 minutes of applying the product.
This lip injection has an intense glossy sheen which gives a beautiful and healthy look to the lips. It is just the right amount of glossy-ness. Since the product has no colour, it doesn’t cover even a tiny bit of the pigmentation on my lips. It rather appears as a glossy shimmer.
I then applied a tiny amount of lipstick over it just to add some colour and what I get is beauty! So happy with the overall look and feel 😀
I would suggest to use this product after exfoliating lips to scrub off the dry patches and clean the lips. Wipe off any wetness and then apply a generous amount of the Lip Injection Extreme to dry lips. Wait for a few minutes before applying the lip color.
The best part is that I felt the effect stay for a good 5 to 6 hours. It goes without saying that its glossy effect does not survive meals as such. You can choose to use it after applying a lipstick or even before – the way I did above. You may also apply a lip liner first and then the lip injection extreme followed by a lipstick.
This is a universal product and would suit all skin tones as such. This is especially a must have for those who have thin lips and want that volume and pout. Considering how expensive and troublesome lip treatments can get, this can surely be a simpler option. The product also claims that on repeated use, it sort of permanently makes the lips fuller. Though it’s soon for me to comment on that, I would not put this product in “everyday use” category.
