Lip "Plumping" glosses - long term effects?

Hi Beautybrainers,

Just wondering if there are any long term effects to using lip plumping glosses? My favorite is by Soap and Glory, a product called Sexy Mother Pucker.  The ingredients are:

Polybutene, Paraffinum Liquidum (Mineral Oil/Huile Minérale), Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Glycerin, VP/Hexadecene Copolymer, Hydroxystearic Acid, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Silica, Calcium Aluminum Borosilicate, Mica, Parfum (Fragrance), Spilanthes Acmella Flower Extract, Propylene Glycol, Alumina, Stevioside, Butylene Glycol, Pentylene Glycol, BHT, Tin Oxide, Sodium Hyaluronate, Hexyl Cinnamal, Limonene, Linalool, Eugenol, Geraniol, Citronellol, Benzyl Alcohol, Coumarin, CI 77891 (Titanium Dioxide), CI 15850 (Red 6), CI 77491 (Iron Oxides), CI 77499 (Iron Oxides)

Im assuming there are some skin irritants in there that cause the tingly sensation.  About a minute after application the tingly stops and its a nice long wearing gloss that isnt overly goopy.  

My question is - is there a downside to such products? Will using this daily prematurely age the skin on my lips or cause fine lines to appear sooner? 

Looking forward to your thoughts and comments!

  • As long as the product doesn't over-irritate and/or your lips and you don't develop an allergic reaction to any of the ingredients it's probably fine.
