Waaah – What Will Roisin Do For Minty Lip Gloss?

By Beaut.ie | November 14 2007 | 12 Comments

Our own dear Roisin Dubh has been be-moaning the fact that Pout are pulling out. In particular, she’s very put out by the fact she won’t be able to keep buying their lovely lip plums no mo’. She’s wondering if “anyone’s stockpiling Pout’s minty lip plump yoke before they disappear from our lives forever“?

But there was more – “and does anybody know a similar product for when my stash eventually runs out“, was her next query. So, is there anything else of such wonderful plumping freshness?


This is the land of beauty, of course there is! Bourjois do a clear bluey-green product – Gloss Menthol – that freshens breath and whitens teeth, but doesn’t puff lips, so we won’t plump (baaadmmmmtssch) for that one.


Instead, what about Stila’s Plumping Lip Glazes? Available in 6 sheer shades – Berry Mint, Cherry Mint, Citrus Mint, Melon Mint, Minty Mint, Vanilla Mint – they’re onny norjus. But a wee bit pricey at about €24, so we may look further.

If you don’t want to spend on Stila, then I have purse-friendly news – Collection 2000, that Constance Carroll-style brand, have a clear, minty plumping gloss – and you’ll probably have change from a fiver too.

    I bought a DuWop Vip Venom ages ago and it makes my lips feel beestung.

  • Jenknee says:

    Vip Venom! Lip Venom I meant..

  • Liz says:

    Yea Jenknee, i bought that before and i don’t like the stinging thing, gave it to my mam she loves it!!! but it feels too weird for my liking!!

  • Aphrodite says:

    Not a big fan of the stinging ones either. Had a Lip Injection but didn’t like the sensation!

  • Helena says:

    The Benefit California Kissin’ Lip Shine is quite minty too and has no sting.

  • Shin says:

    That cheapo cosmetics brand ‘essence’ do one called ‘volume up’.

    I don’t know if they sell this product in Ireland yet (I’m in the U.S. and am still a big fan of your website)…but, there’s a lovely minty, tingly lip gloss by C.O. Bigelow called Mentha Lip Shine, and it’s great!

    This is my first post, can’t resist not to comment on fab Bigelow Mentha lipgloss! I discovered it on a trip home to the states and now have my sister send regular shipments. Heading home in few weeks and hope customs here doesn’t stop me with my new supply..I have only ever seen in Bath and Body works in states.

    I seem to remember that the Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmers (you can find them in most health food stores) have a minty tingle to them. Plus they come on loads of pretty shades :)

    Tx you are correct there – using Burt’s Bees Lip shimmer at the miniute & it has a lovely menthol tingle. Not at all like the lip injections. Would highly recommend it.

    Hi everyone,

    I noticed that Lancome have a new lip plumping gloss out now that is quite tingly. Its not so much minty though as it has a slight fruity taste/ smell off it. But it also has a lovely sparkle/ glitter in it. It isnt a juicy tube now, I think it is colour fever or something??
