We Review Charlotte Tilbury's New Lip Plumper

Charlotte Tilbury Plumpgasm Lip review | Space NK
Lip plumping glosses have been having quite the moment and it was only a matter of time before Charlotte Tilbury launched its version. Meet Charlotte Tilbury Big Lip Plumpgasm, the newest addition to the bestselling Pillow Talk range. The formula is jam packed with ingredients to provide a plumping effect and hydration – think collagen and hyaluronic acid.

In true Charlotte Tilbury style, it comes with some impressive promises too. From giving lips an instant plumping effect to promising to improving plumpness by up to 25% in two weeks, this lip plumping product is creating a buzz right now. Does it deliver in its promises, and will it plump your lips? We asked the Space NK team to road test the two shades, Pillow Talk Fair to Medium and Pillow Talk Medium to Deep.

Charlotte Tilbury Big Lip Plumpgasm review | Space NK

I love to use lip plumping glosses and was very excited to try Charlotte Tilbury’s Lip Plumpgasm. I’m thrilled to say it wasn’t sticky and gave a gorgeous shine and gloss to my lips. The tingling sensation started immediately but it wasn’t uncomfortable and didn’t last for long. Too many lip plumper I’ve tried in the past have been uncomfortable and sting, but this one didn’t.

The applicator wasn’t messy and I didn’t need to use a lot or apply multiple layer. The packaging also got my vote and looked super luxe in my makeup bag.

So, what about the results? My lips started to plump within a minute of applying each time I used it. I noticed my lips looked visibly plumper quickly after. As I naturally have big lips, it’s rare to see a big difference when using plumper, but the plump with this gloss was amazing. I used the product on an evening out with my friends and my lips looked plumped all night. I had to reapply a few times after eating and drinking but not any more than a usual gloss.

In terms of the shade, Pillow Talk Medium-Deep is a brown-neutral, which I prefer as I don’t like a lot of pigment in glosses – I like a more natural look. This matched well with the colour of my lips and skin tone.

Overall, I love this product. I’ve crowned it my new favourite lip plump. It gives the perfect plump and it looks lovely paired with a brown lip liner.

Charlotte Tilbury Big Lip Plumpgasm review | Space NK

Although I’ve used lip plumping products before, they’re not something I regularly use or have in my current makeup routine. When I first applied Charlotte Tilbury’s lip plumper, I was pleasantly surprised, it glided onto my lips and felt very lightweight. I’d say the formula has a medium thickness, and it wasn’t sticky at all.

Within seconds, my lips started to tingle and there was a coolness. While the former dissipated, my lips felt cool while the product was on my lips. I was impressed with the initial plump of my lips when first using this product, however what I loved most was the glossy finish.

I used Charlotte Tilbury’s lip plumper on and off for about a week and was really impressed. If I wanted a glossy lip, I would definitely use this product.

Our Verdict On The Charlotte Tilbury Big Lip Plumpgasm

For anyone wondering if they should invest in Charlotte Tilbury’s lip plumping gloss, it seems safe to say that it’s worth checking out. Both our reviewers noted plumper looking lips within minutes of applying and fell in love with the glossy finish. Charlotte did have one top tip to add: “I would use a lip liner first to give your lips a much fuller look.”
