No, our glosses do not contain a plumping effect. Our main goal with our lip gloss is to offer a product that is non-sticky, very hydrating, radiant and shiny. All of that, with simple ingredients you can pronounce. We designed and formulated a product that makes you want to keep applying it for its moisture factor, like a lip balm, unlike other glosses that dry you out. By not making it a plumping product, we tried to avoid any irritation that can be experienced by our consumer. Plumping glosses, if reapplied can leave your lips irritated and very dry, which is the opposite of what we strive for. Our goal is to nourish and not strip your lips of nutrients. If you have ever had really spicy food and felt your lips burning with an unpleasant sensation afterwards, you have somewhat experienced similar ingredients that are used in plumping glosses. We want to ensure a pleasant experience rather than a painful, and possibly harmful one.
