Thanks to Kardashians and Jenners, plump lips is one of the crazy things in the world of glam.
While there are a lot of products claiming that they give you plump lips, I have come across multiple medium to good reviews of this one lip plumping product called – lip injection.
Na, I am not saying injections/ needles. It’s the product’s name.
Have you heard about the brand ‘Too faced’? They have this lip product called ‘Lip Injection Extreme Lip Plumper’. The brand wasn’t available in India until last week. Nykaa has now launched this brand and the products are now available online and at Nykaa stores.
Needless to say, I was quite curious to try this out. I said curious but I knew it will not be any magical portion to give any drastic results. So, I bought a smaller sized product this week. Let me tell you how it worked or not worked for me.

The outer cartoon looks like this.
It has all details about the product. Ingredients, shelf life, how to use, what to expect etc.
Product comes in a transparent tube packing, just like a lip-gloss packing. The golden cap with the design makes it look interesting. The transparency of the tube makes it easier to keep an eye on quantity of the product inside.
The applicator is quite soft and it is typical doe foot applicator. Makes it easy to apply the product.
It has very fresh fruity smell. Reminds of boomer chewing gums.
It is transparent with glossy finish.
It says apply it on perimeter of your lips. Wait for 5 to 10 minutes for it to work.
Instead of going with the instructions, I applied it all over my lips.
I had seen bunch of videos/ reviews. Where the YouTubers used to say that after few seconds of applying it starts working. It feels like multiple needles on lips, it stings. Some even said it feels like your lips are burning.
In my case, hell no..! I did feel little tingling within few seconds of application. But that’s it. Nothing more than that. Tingling lasted for a minute max. I was expecting little more (thanks to the tons of reviews I had watched before) but it did not do anything much..!
Here are the before and after pictures of my lips. After picture was taken after 7 minutes of application. I can see very minute change, nothing ‘extreme’ in terms of plumping.
Let’s talk about hydration. I must say, it did add good hydration to my lips. I have dry lips. Regular application of lip balm, every hour at least, is a must. But this did add enough hydration. I did not feel any dryness for 3 to 4 hours. It’s a satisfying amount of time considering the fact that I have dry lips and I sit in air conditned environment.
Things I Liked:
- Travel friendly packing.
- Transparent bottle makes it easier to keep track of the quantity left inside.
- Smells nice.
- Adds hydration to your lips.
- You can use it above lipstick to add shine and hydration.
- Applicator makes the application easy.
- Non sticky consistency slides easily.
Thing I Did not Like:
- Main purpose of the product is not really served. Plumping wasn’t much in my case at least.
Umm I don’t think I will repurchase. In fact I am glad that I went for smaller version instead of the bigger one. I loved the hydration part. But I have bunch of good lip balms which add hydration, with price way less than this one. Plus, plumping did not really worked for me. So I don’t think I will buy again.
