Hard Candy has been on the ball with new products this year! I was recently sent one of the new Plumping Lip Serum glosses to try out and share my thoughts with you. I was sent one of the darkest shades - After Hours - which in the tube is a dark purple with tiny glittery flecks. I was skeptical being the pale child that I am that this color would work for me but I was quite surprised. On the lips it is the slightest wash of color in a soft purpley/plum. Alone it is more of just a gloss than deep color but for me this worked well. I found that it was even better to top matte lipsticks I already owned to amp up the shine. I've only tried this one color - which is one of the sheer colors but I was told there are some that are more opaque.
There are flecks of glitter that are very tiny that you can see in the tube, however on the lips it transforms and it just adds to the shine and full appearance. You don't see any actual glitter when applied. The gloss has a nice scent and does leave a shiny look. It has a slight tingle that most plumpers have. This one was very gentle and did not burn or anything. I don't personally care for those type of glosses but I found that I could wear this one easily as it was so mild. I do feel like my lips looked fuller and more voluptuous when I applied this alone or over other lip colors. I plan to get a nude color so that I can see what that looks like alone. Overall this was a pretty nice product and one I'd say you should check out.
