A 99%-natural cinnamon and Resveratrol infused lip oil that naturally hydrates, shines, and plumps the appearance of lips in one spicy swipe.
Delicious enough to eat, this Plumping Lip Oil creates a soft cinnamon heat that delivers a natural flush minutes after application. Nourishing oils from cinnamon bark and pink pepper stimulate circulation for a natural plumping effect while peppermint oil provides a subtle warming sensation on lips. French olive oil, pure jojoba, castor seed oil, and argan oil hold five times their weight in moisture for long-lasting all-day hydration.
BITE BEAUTY Cinnamon Plumping Lip Oil was a part of the Beauty Oils kit that I picked during the Holidays. I thought I will give it a try it. It smelled good and tempting! In the past I remember I have tried one lip plumper. I had got it during some sale as well.
Texture and Consistency: Slightly thick, mildly sticky, No shimmer. No glitter liquid
Scent: Strong Spicy with hint of peppermint. Prominent smell of Cinnamon.
Application: I applied it on bare lips as well as over a lipstick. The application was pretty even on bare lips, but over a lipstick it was uneven and patchy.
Feel on Lips: On my bare lips, it tingled a lot. It did not sting or hurt, but it felt very uncomfortable. This tingling effect lasted for a fairly good time. I would say 30 minutes or so. It imparted a very glossy, high shine. Though thick in texture, it was not very heavy. It did feel sticky. As far as moisturizing is concerned, it was initially ok, but after an hour or so the lips felt dry.
Effect on Lips: It improved the natural color of my lips by imparting high shine. I did feel the tingling, but did not see any major difference in the plumping department. The lips felt tight for the initial few minutes. I would say 15 minutes or so.
Packaging: Sleek transparent tube with a doe foot applicator. The cap is black with matte finish.
Verdict: As a lip gloss it is good, because of the high shine it imparts. In fact it is very good as a lip gloss for bare lips. It just makes them appear fresh and healthy. Apart from that I am personally not a fan of the whole cinnamon tingle effect. It just makes my lips uncomfortable. As far as plumping effect goes, I didn't see much difference. Hydration too didn't last long. Re-application was needed. It is not a cure for dry or chapped lips.
A product worth trying though if you enjoy the whole temporary plumping, tingling experience.
