Maybelline VolumeXLSeduction Lip Plumper

I love lip plumpers. I feel that my lips aren't necessarily thin, more deflated looking, with a lot of lines in them, which makes me feel weird since I'm only 21. I picked this up on an outing with my grandma, because one I enjoyed the color tremendously, I like how sleek and metallic the tube is and I liked how it was a lip plumper, but I decided to put it back, for a the L'Oreal HIP mascara. I vowed that when I could, I'd grab this again. 
Last week I caught a mistake on one of my boyfriend's receipts in time for him to go and fix it, saving him some money. Which I then got out of him by convincing him to spend the saved cash on me, by buying me this lip plumper. 
I used it immediately.

My boyfriend noted that it fills out some of the creases in my lips, that the color was good, and that my lips were slightly more plump. There was a numbing effect that turned into a slight tingle over time. It smells like candy and tastes pretty decent. The formula is not too thick but coats my lips well, leaving a nice sheen and when it wears off my lips are soft. The tip is hard plastic with about 6 holes in it where the product comes out. One twist of the bottom is all you need because plenty of product comes out, which i enjoy.
Pros: good pigmentation, smell, taste. Sleek and attractive tube. A little goes a long way and does not irritate my skin if it goes outside of my lip line. Leaves my lips feeling soft.
Cons: doesn't actually plump. Too pricey for a product that doesn't do as it claims. Doesn't stay on my lips long.
Bottom line is I would re-buy this, but only as a lip gloss, not a plumper, and only because I truly enjoy the color.
