Pout Poppers lip plumping lip glosses are hands down the most effective and beautiful lip plumpers that I have ever tried. These sparkling gems are moisturizing, long wearing, unbelievable gorgeous, and highly effective. They include highly refined HD particles making them perfectly suited for HD and Red Camera projects, but also infinitely wearable for everyday use. They sparkle so beautifully in the sun that they rival Chanel Glossimers in this capacity! They are pigmented enough to be worn alone, but are fantastic layered over lipstick or lip liners as well.
This is a truly amazing product that is infused with all sorts of fantastic healthy ingredients that condition the lips while making them gorgeous and full. However, be forewarned that these are not appropriate for people with sensitive lips that cannot tolerate tingling lip plumping products. They moisturizing the lips while imparting the most gorgeous twinkling shine. I find them positively enchanting!!
Mother Nature (review forthcoming): You are a natural beauty! Delicate angelic pink with gold flecks make shy lips pop! This gorgeous shade was made to celebrate the infinite beauty and strength of Mother Earth. It is a lovely and easy to wear shade that will look beautiful on warm and cool skin tones alike.
Christina Perri (review forthcoming): You are creative and talented! Edgy multi toned berries and pinks make creative lips pop! This gorgeous multi-dimensional complex shade was created to honor the well-known singer & songwriter with whom Susan has been friends since they were both just starting out in their careers.
Picture Vanessa (review forthcoming): You are exposed! Naked multi tones show you wear your heart on your sleeve, Pop your heart out! This lovely multi-dimensional super flattering nude shade was named to commemorate the memory of Susan's beloved friend Vanessa.
Evelyn's Journey (review forthcoming): You are in Vogue and sophisticated! Luscious deep plums with gold flecks. Pop out in the crowd! This gorgeous shade is named in honor of Susan's lovely mom whose beauty and spirit are captured in this richly vibrant, complex, and elegant shade. This gorgeous shimmering plum also pairs beautifully with her Creamy Lipstick in Cleo, who is her lovely maternal grandmother. This two generational combination is perfectly on-trend and infinitely glamorous!

Overall assessment: These are the most phenomenal lip plumping lip glosses that I have ever tried. If you are a fan of lip plumping glosses then you will find these Pout Poppers gorgeous and effective. That said, these are not for everyone. People with sensitive lips or who do not do well with lip plumping products should definitely avoid these because they may find that they are too active, and that they may irritate their lips too much.

In the spirit of full disclosure, Susan is my friend and she gave all of these items to me as a gift. It is because I love these products so much that I decided to review them, and had I not loved them I simply would have avoided reviewing them because of our friendship. As is the case with all of my reviews, I am not being paid, and as always the opinions that I express are 100% my own. I wildly love all of her products, and therefore wanted to let you in on this beauty & entertainment industry insider secret because I think these products are too good to remain so exclusive.
