May contain: titanium dioxide (CI 77891), iron oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492), iron oxides black (CI 77499). These ingredients help to hydrate and moisturize the lips, making them appear plumper. This lip enhancing product comprises a long list of ingredients. This is of concern: various ingredients may interact with others. More so, this manufacturer fails to indicate the concentration of each of the ingredients, nor which ingredients are active. Studies have found that effective products contain at least 10% active ingredients.


User instructions are unclear. The user should apply the balm. However, no further directions are given: how many times to apply the product, and which applicator works best for the product. Having succinct instructions are important as they allow the user to achieve optimal results.

Our Review Summary Of Lush Lips Water Plumping Primer

The lip balm product Lush Lips Water Plumping Primer appears a useful product, covered by a two-week money-back guarantee; and the reviews are mostly positive. However, the guarantee does not allow the buyer to test the product; therefore a bad reaction could occur to any one of the long list of ingredients. Although our research found that the customer reviews involved minimal deception, there are not a sufficient number of reviews on this product. This could imply that the product is not very popular. More so, the manufacturer of this lip balm does not offer consumers detailed and succinct instructions on how to apply this product.
