Plumped lips in minutes....no injections necessary!

I have always had a complex about my top lip. If I ever win the lottery, the first thing I would do would be to get my top lip enhanced but, alas, I've never even won a tenner! 
So recently I did quite a bit of research into products that would amp up the volume whilst not breaking the bank.

I saw quite a few reviews on DuWop and decided this 'Venom' lip plumper was the product for me.
The product itself is a clear gloss which is applied with a tiny lip brush. It comes in a tiny 3.5ml tube but I honestly can't see the day when I'll run out of it as a little really does go a long way.

As soon as I applied this, the very first time, my lips started to tingle - yaay! As I want maximum effects, I apply this all over my top and bottom lips (as I would a normal lipgloss) about half an hour before I'm going to be applying my lip colour of the day. If you wanted, you could just leave this on and be good to go for the day. I'm not a fan of the clear lip gloss look so I tend to blot off any product that hasn't soaked in. The result doesn't disappear once the product has gone which I love but obviously they'd be prolonged if you just left the gloss on.

I thought the effects might just be in my head to begin with, that the tingling had made me exaggerate the results but the lips even feel fuller to touch.

One problem I have had with this product is that I have to be careful not to get it on the skin around my lips. I've found that when I get in on my skin it creates blotches. These do fade and disappear within the hour but obviously if I'm going out, it's not ideal.

Have you ever tried any products like this? Did they work?
