I've used LipFusion several times in the past and loved it. The bottle I just got had a dry applicator, even though the applicator arrives already stuck in the bottom of the product vial. I had to work to get the applicator moist. When I first applied the product, I thought it was just fake mineral oil (although the outside of the product didn't look counterfeit). After several minutes, my lips do look slightly plumper, so maybe product is just super old and dried out. What a shame. I remember LipFusion when it first came out had enough product to apply a couple of times a day for about a month. Now the price is too high for so very very little.
