Becca, I just want to make sure we’re clear. Oh — would you look at that? It looks like we are. Because Becca’s new Lip Plumping Moisture Gloss ($23) is exactly that: clear.
It’s a clear, hydrating gloss with a few good things going for it, like a finish shinier than high-gloss nails; a comfy, non-sticky texture; and a yummy cinnamon-and-brown sugar flavor and scent (it’s subtle and fades quickly).
I also like the brush tip, which is soft, but not too soft, so it doesn’t splay. A minor thing, sure, but I appreciate how easy it is to control.
As far as the product’s plumping prowess, well, I haven’t really noticed a lot. No big difference in lip volume, but that’s par for the course for me when it comes to lip plumpers. At least in this one’s case, it doesn’t sting.
I was just about to give Becca Lip Plumping Moisture Gloss a spot in my regular rotation of makeup, but then it disappeared! — from my lips. Seriously, I only get about two hours from it, tops, which pales in comparison to the wear time of my standby clear gloss, MAC Clear Lipglass.

The price ($23) seems high, especially next to $14.50 MAC Clear. Clear, however is quite sticky, so if you prefer a clear gloss that’s non-sticky and smooth, Becca Lip Plumping Moisture Gloss could be your girl.
