exclaimed "Ow!" once the slow burn began, wiped it off and haven't really thought about it since. These definitely are a nono for sensitive lips! I don't have sensitive lips, but these bother me. I have no problem with MAC plushglass or Buxom Lips glosses, but NYX's plump it up lip plumpers definitely provide a burning sensation. That alone would make me write these off, but do they do what they claim?

Actually, I think they kind of do! If you don't mind (or actually like?) a burning sensation on your lips and weak pigmentation, these might be for you. I, on the other hand, don't know what I was thinking when I bought these (hoping for a MAC Bubble Tea plushglass dupe, I suppose...). My lips are plenty plump. I don't think the colors are very distinct from each other, but I prefer more pigmented lip products in general.

The burn continues after I've wiped it off... these just aren't for me, even though they work.
