LipFusion InFATuation lipgloss - does it work?

I am generally happy with the size of my lips but I would never say no to Angeline Jolie-esque big pillowy lips. And any product that claims to give "never before achievable lip volume" is something I'm keen to try. This LipFusion InFATuation lipgloss in Angelic was one of the prizes I won in Tine's blog giveaway a while back.

What they say
"Become infatuated with your lips and discover a revolutionary breakthrough in lip plumping technology. LipFusion's Infatuation Liquid Shine Multi-Action Lip Fattener is the first liquid lip color with extraordinary Amplifat technology to help increase and maintain volume just where you need it most!

LipFusion Infatuation Liquid Shine Multi-Action Lip Fattener Features:
  • Breakthrough Amplifat concentrate (derived from a perennial sea fern) helps promote never-before-achievable lip volume.
  • Helps provide more youthful-looking lips.
  • Double-encapsulated plumping spheres for instant, yet temporary plumping.
  • Precision brush delivers flawless application and seamless color coverage.
  • Innovative texture merges the brilliance of a gloss with the luxury of a liquid lipstick for high-impact shine.
  • Paraben-free, silicone-free.
  • Made in Italy."

What I say
It feels hydrating on the lips which lasts for up to 2 hours. The colour is gorgeous, however it can settle into fine lines very quickly which I'm not a fan of. One thing I really liked about this is that the tingly effect is very subtle, it doesn't give you that burning-lip feeling that lip fatteners of the past did. However in terms of plumping my lips, I'm not too sure about it. The effect I get (see pics below) is pretty much the same as I get from any old lip gloss so considering how expensive it is (AUD$50 at Mecca Cosmetica or US$29 at Sephora) I'd pass.

The bottom line
It's great as a lipgloss but not so great at plumping the lips.

Have you tried lip fatteners? 
Are there any that have worked for you?


  1. I often saw this on sale but I never bought it! I really like the color :) x

  2. I found that with my Naked 2 Palette, the little Lip Junkie Lip Gloss did some justice for me! Only because it had a minty feel to it.

  3. That's a real shame it wasn't really plumping, considering the price. But it does look beautiful on you! :)

  4. Once, when I was younger I found a lip fattener that really and truly worked! It was mystical! ...But I didn't bother to write down the brand or anything. Haha. I've been on the hunt for it ever since. This is a nice color but all in all, it doesn't look to be plumping up your lips.
