pixi beauty liplift max petal ice swatches and review on beautyjudy

In the very first month of BeautyJudy, back when I didn’t know what the heck I was doing, I did a review – with no pictures, ha! – of about six or seven lip plumpers from brands like Smashbox, Fusion, DuWop and Too Faced.

At the time, O-Plump by Smashbox was my winner.

But as interested as I was six + years ago, I haven’t really worn many lip plumpers since 2009, so I was very intrigued when Pixi by Petra‘s LipLift Max in Petal Ice arrived at my doorstep to try!

LipLift Max is a clear, glossy lip treatment meant to produce volume in the lips while filling out lines. It contains hydrating peptides that are supposed to firm and plump. It also contains aloe vera, jojoba and chamomile. It’s got a sweet minty scent. It’s meant to be worn alone or over your lip color.

First, check out my before and after pictures, then I’ll talk more about whether this delivers!

Pictures don’t lie, right? Clearly, LipLift Max delivers on a slight plump and fills in lines. It also moisturized the dry parts of my lips. This was within minutes of application.

The scent is nice, light and very tolerable. Sometimes the scent is so strong in plumpers your eyes could water.

My lips did not sting as if a million bees were attacking them. There was a subtle cool feeling, it’s actually very refreshing and doesn’t feel painful one iota.

The gloss itself is not tacky, it feels good on my lips. I feel comfortable using this to give my lips moisture, not just a full effect.

The only criticism I have of the product is that the tube looks bigger than the actual product you get. You get .09 oz of product in a sturdy, plastic tube. You can tell by eyeing it that the part of the tube holding the plumper is thinner than the actual size of the square tube.

LipLift Max in Petal Ice is available at Target, but you can also pick it up on the brand website for $14 here.

LipLift Max deserves a place in my everyday makeup bag. Have you tried it? Have you ever used a plumper/interest in using one?

      Every now and then I need a break from bold lippies!

    OhMy, DuWop was my go-to then, except for the nasty sting, it does the job! Now I need to hunt this pixi!

    • BeautyJudy

      DuWop was amazing, lol! Definitely one of those products I was in love with at one point!

    This stuff works for you!

      It does!!

  • marciaf

    I love this product. I wear it alone all the time especially when I’m not in the mood for lipstick. I can picture myself buying it over and over.

    • BeautyJudy

      Me too, Marcia!!

    I’ve never reached out to lip plumping products but, goodness knows I need them! Thanks for sharing this one.

    • BeautyJudy

      They’re not top of mind for me, but I really like the idea of keeping this one in my purse just in case I want a bit of shine on my lips and even texture!

    Your lips look plumped 🙂

    • BeautyJudy

      Indeed! Love this.

  • Cindy Ingalls

    Pixi has such great products. This lip plumper looks amazing. I need to check it out next time I’m at Target.

    • BeautyJudy

      They really do, I have a couple really Holy Grails from the line.

    Oh wow, this actually worked so well! I have small lips so I definitely need to try this!

    • BeautyJudy

      It really did, it was a nice, not-too-overdone look!

  • Allison @neversaydiebeauty

    I’m a firm believe in lip plumpers but I can wear the ones with peppermint oil. I’ve had very good luck with City Lips Lip Plumper with HA & Collagen, and it really softens my otherwise dry lips

    • BeautyJudy

      I haven’t tried City Lips, I will have to check that out!

    It sounds like a perfect product for someone who want just slightly bigger lips, but without the crazy stinging. I haven’t used lip plumpers, but I might give this one a try some day.

    • BeautyJudy

      Agreed! it is a really nice plumper.
