I've had the chance to try NYX's plumper lip glosses called Pump It Up Plumper Gloss. It is your typical plumper lip gloss that makes the lips appear more full, sexy and luscious. I am typically not a fan of lip plumpers because I hate the stinging effect. I also didn't see much difference in my lips after I applied lip plumpers. I still decided to try NYX's version because I want to see if these would be anything different.

Wearing NYX Pump It Up Plumper gloss over lipstick
As usual, these things stung. I didn't like the feeling when I just wore it alone, so I often apply this over a lipstick. That way, the lip plumper doesn't sting so much. I like the many variants of this lip product from NYX. I have five different shades: Liv which is the clear one, Elizabeth which is a cream nude plummy mauve-grey, Kim which is a cream pinky-peach, Jessica which is a blingy, sparkly beige-rose, and Lisa which is a pinkish sparkle. As I'd mentioned, I like to apply these over lipsticks to minimize the uncomfortable sting.
The great news is that this is the first lip plumper I've tried that I really saw the visible difference on my lips. They looked fuller, more plump and pillowy, as you can see in the pictures above. It does work! If you want the appearance of plumper lips and don't mind the initial sting, try this one out.
