You know what I like more than warm brownies with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side?
Not a lot. LOL!
Kidding. But seriously, I love finding new budget beauty bargains, like Palladio’s Herbal Plump ‘n’ Shine lip glosses.
There’s not a lot to ‘em. They’re just your everyday comfy glosses with a brush applicator and a mirror-like shine, but they’re only $6 each, so they don’t cost an arm and a leg, and they’re packed with botanical ingredients.
Polybutene, Octyldodecanol, Silica Silylate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Tridecyl Trimellitate, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Flower Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Ricinus Communis (Castor Oil) Seed Oil, Pentaerithrityl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Polyglyceryl-2 Diisostearate, Pentaerythrityl Tetraisostearate, Octyldodecyl Stearoyl Stearate, VP/Hexadecene Copolymer, Microcrystaliine Wax, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Tribehenin, Sorbitan Isostearate, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Retinyl Palmitate, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Soluble Collagen, Tocopherol, BHT, Bumetrizole, Tetradibutyl, Propylparaben
Generally, when it comes to plumping lip products, I pretty much ignore the claims (except when they say something about “burning” or “buzzing”). These do have a faint tingling sensation, but I don’t mind. I actually do feel like the shine from these, if not the tingling, does make my lips appear a little bigger (or maybe that’s just the tingling keeping me on my toes).
Luckily, I like the way they taste and smell faintly of vanilla, since they don’t last all that long on my lips. I find myself having to whip one out to re-apply every hour.
