If you are familiar with Maybelline Shine Seduction lip gloss, a gloss that I happen to think is one of the best drugstore ones out there, then this one will seem familiar. Maybelline VolumeXLSeduction Plumping Gloss is the same thing, but with an oh so tingly lip plumper added. For more on the original Maybelline Shine Seduction gloss, see my original review.
I grabbed mine off the shelf at Target and noted that they were selling out fast. Like the standard Shine Seduction, the plumping version features the click up applicator, great shades, and super shine. It then adds plumping, and is one of the better drug store plumping glosses that I have tried. I picked out a light neutral pink shade that I just love.
Keep in mind that I have yet to find a plumper that actually make the lips appear much larger, but I like the tingle of lip plumpers and some tingle more than others. This one does a good job in that department. So while I didn’t see my lips magically turn plump, I did get a neat feeling gloss, that also happened to be in a great shade for me.
