I just wanted a plumper that you could wear underneath your favorite lip colors. Rather than a gloss, this is more like a satiny finish lip primer serum that fattens up your lips. ...this really feels like a serum that's made for your lips, it's a little thicker than your normal lip balm but thinner than a lip mask/butter, and it leaves a shine without feeling like a gloss. it's a little plumping but not to a ridiculous level and the tingling is cooling instead of burning like most plumping products.
