I only just got introduced to Sally Hansen, with my first product being its Miracle Cure for nails. This is my second product by SH and I have NOT bought it. I actually received it in a beauty box subscription (Vellvette, India) and personally, this wouldn't be something I would buy for myself.
First, I have plump and thick lips by normal standards and do not require any more inflation. Second, although I do love cinnamon on its own, I do not want it on my lips, literally making them tingly.
I received the shade Sheer Bare, which is a pure nude shade with the tiniest bit of shimmer in it, hardly visible at all. The gloss is not totally sticky, but not very balm-ish either. It is something that is acceptable.
It has a brush applicator, not the usual sponge type, and it actually applies much, much better than a sponge one. I should start hunting down more brush-applicator glosses/lipsticks now. It layers up easily and smoothly and you do not need to reapply. Lasting power w/o eating/drinking is 2 hours.
Once you apply, the lips start to tingle (yes, tingle!) for about 3-4 minutes until the spicy cinnamon extract enhances lips' natural color to appear more pinker, fuller and healthier (SH's claim). I don't know about *pinker* as its a nude gloss and I can barely see underneath to check whether my natural lip color has become pinker or not. That can only be verified with a clear gloss.
For the fuller & healthier claim:
|Sally Hansen Lip Inflation Extreme - Sheer Bare |
1. My lips are lush and healthy, so I barely noticed a visible difference in their lip size or whether they did actually look more plump. For me, it was just the same.
2. For my sister in law (who has thin & rough lips), her lips did appear slightly full and better looking than they actually are. I won't go as far as to say they looked healthy, just mid-way till there.
There was nothing
extreme nor inflation about this lip gloss, just a spicy gloss which does enhance your lips up to a point. Don't have high expectations, please.
