Rouge Bunny Rouge Swell Bliss XXX Lip Plump in Clover Royal Jelly

Can I say that the "XXX" in the product name strikes me as a tiny bit...odd?  Hey, this is a G-rated blog, but I associate XXX with pre-Giuliani Times Square.  I suspect Rouge Bunny Rouge was being a little bit tongue in cheek referring to their secret lip plumping formula as XXX and also giving a knowing wink to...uh... bodily swelling.

My well-considered thoughtfulness aside, here is the very demure looking tube, with the botanical motif scrolling across the bottle and topped by a glossy black top.


Lots of shimmery iridescence glows through.  There is a slim brush as an applicator and it picks up a rather big portion of product.  The applicator is not particularly precise, as the brush fibers are fairly soft.
Who doesn't want juicy and plump lips?  But I don't want it with any pain!  I don't care about no pain no gain!  I want beauty with no pain!  No pain!  (As an aside, I've put away all my stiletto heels and high heeled sandals for my daughters.  Pain + sexy feet?  No thank you.)

So what's all this lip swelling about?  Well, there is a slight pepperminty fragrance and an immediately subtle and cooling effect on my lips when I apply it.  It doesn't irritate my lips in anyway.  It's not an irritated lip that becomes a plumped up lip in this case.  It's the incredible hydrating formula that is full of lustre and plush finish that gives an incredible look.

See, it looks a little thickened, but doesn't feel gloopy or sticky.  It feels amazing on my lips and the color is beautiful.  This color is a lovely cool rosewood with a rich and glowing micro-colored shimmer.
 This last picture shows off its incredible multi-colored shimmer.

Pretty, ain't it?  Tried any interesting lip plumping glosses from other brands?  Do they actually work?  Is there...PAIN?!
