I had never tried a lip plumper before I recieved one in a free gift with purchase from e.l.f. online. I like the conveinance of this duo stick also. Its handy little packaging is two ended for easy storage. The plumper actually does work and heres how: it contains a cinnamon based ingrediant that tingles causing the lips to temporarily swell. It is non painful and pleasant in smell. (If you like cinnamon) It is great for pre-selfie, family photo, or just a little pick up to your look in the evening or morning. The primer does not have a scent. It is a strong thick primer for your lips and must be used as a base! Be careful to apply after moisurizing and/or exfoliating lips- as it can be drying. However you wont get the drying effect as long as you use a chapstick or lip balm first. I wouldn't apply on top of any color because the off-white will mix with the color and you may get an inpleasant looking result of the mix. So, apply primer sparingly, let dry for a couple minutes and blot excess on tissue or hand. Then you can apply your color or plumper, or plumper-color-plumper - gloss is my preferred method with this product.

This has been my go to primer and plumper for about 3 months now and it's honestly rather hit and miss. The plumping side is fantastic! Its easy to apply and does exactly what it's meant to. It's low sting while still giving a decent pout. It also doesn't dry out my lips the way some plumpers do. The primer side of the product however isn't great. It has an awful chemical smell and begins to goop up after only a moment or two. The product doesn't stay put and causes most of my lip products to move aroybd after application. It doesn't work well with matte liquid lipstick at all. Causes them to crack and become patchy almost instantly. Wish that ELF Cosmetics would make these two separate products instead of a duo. Would definitely purchase the plumper again if it was it's own product.

I mostly just use the plumping side of this product. 1) It smells amazing!! (It has cinnamon oil in it) 2) It does the job! (While it may not make your lips look like Kylie Jenner's, the ingredients stimulate the lips making them appear fuller! 3) Decent amount of moisturizing! (My lips are usually dry and this plumper smoothes them out nicely. This only lasts for about 10-15 minutes for me but it's still nice!) [product:e.l.f.-cosmetics-lip-primer-&-plumper]

I cannot say ENOUGH BAD THINGS about this product. I don't even know where to begin. 
First off- super cheap. It is two sided. One side is a primer and the other is a plumper. I was really excited to use this. Its cheap, I love ELF so I couldn't wait to try it out. Worst mistake ever. This plumper was so painful on my lips I couldn't even stand it. A lot of plumpers have a stinging sensation and normally they don't bother me, but this was almost unbearable. After the first use, I decided to give it another try a few days after. I had to remove it. I immediently had a reaction and my lips turned so chapped/dry that it hurt to talk. May sound like i'm over exaggerating, but I swear this is the worst product. I threw away and I will NEVER buy/recommend this to anyone. It is so painful.

I love the primer portion of this. It really seems to make the lipstick last longer. The one downside to the primer is if you are trying to use a lighter shade of lipstick it seems to dull it out a lot or it takes extra coats. I don’t think the plumper does anything. I’ll use it is I want a little bit of shine. The plumper also tinges and smells like cinnamon which is a bit of a turn off

Don’t get my wrong I usually love every product Elf makes because of its extremely affordable pricing and surprisingly good quality. But this lip plumper and primer left me really disappointed. The primer is very streaky and doesn’t wear as well or as long on the lip as advertised. The plumping side really didn’t have much effect on my lips. I went as far as taking before and after pictures and couldn’t see any difference between the two. This product does smell like cinnamon and had a tingling effect which had me hopefully but after a few testing times applying more and more of the product I realized it didn’t live up to its advertisement

For the price this is not only amazing but a good buy because it is a set, lip plumper and lip primer. It's very subtle and is not sticky so you can apply your usual lip color without adding gloss or a color change. Just to mention the cinnamon scent is wonderful. Perfect for matte lipstick

E.l.f products never seem to disappoint me. The plumper smells like big red chewing gum, and I have to say your lips do get plumped! The primer I wouldn’t recommend using it with a natural lip color but if you have a dark red and use the primer first the colors are way more vibrant.

This product uses a cinnamon base to get the plumping effect. It makes your lips tingle but I didn't notice much of a difference besides looking more pink. I wouldn't recomment this product. My lips are medium size. [product:e.l.f.-cosmetics-lip-primer-&-plumper]

This was one of my least favorite products I’ve ever tried; I’m usually a big fan. The plumper side was decent and had that cinnamon flavor or taste you expect. It plumped some but nothing magic or that would last awhile. I️ have used it a handful of times. The primer though was pretty bad. I️ only used it twice and my lip colors did not stick or stay at all. The primer was very white and thick feeling. It overtook my lip colors and felt too chalky. My lips would end up white or tan colored. I️ like elf but wasn’t a fan of this.

Is this plumper effective? I've never really used either plumper or primer before. I usually wear liquid lipstick.

Does this product actually work? I am looking for a good plumper more so than the primer. If another brand works better, I would like to know.
