honestly, you get used to the tingling, I actually really enjoy it now because that's how I know its working! Ever notice how after you brush your teeth/ lips your lips have a "pouted" look? Well in that case the mint is not agitating your lips, but rather providing a slight sting to them causing blood to rush to the spot to help "relieve" the problem creating a plumped effect. The same thing happens here, however it's in an AMAZING lip gloss! It A) plumps B) smells/ tastes good (aftr 5min) C) provides excellent shine! In sephora try the lip injection extreme, if it's too duck like, get the regular lip injection, (I recommend getting the super sized clear one, 5 more dollars and it's 1 and 1/2 times the size of the smaller one!!!!) remeber: sephora has a great return policy, so if all goes wrong, retun it! Happy hunting!
It basically stings your lips so that blood rushes to the surface of your lips and makes them appear more plump. Your lips will stay plump for a while after the tingling stops, but you may want to reapply it like a regular lipgloss if you want to use it again. I recommend trying it out at Sephora first and see if you are satisfied with the outcome. I think this is the best lip plumper on the market (though it has its down sides) after Dior's lip plumper. It'll plump up your thin lips a bit but won't make them look any thicker, if that's what you're looking for. Hope this helps !
I wouldnt recommend it for a fourteen year old, it burns pretty badly the first few times you apply it, though it lasts hours. Also, it doesnt really work well with very thin lips, more like normal lips.
