Ever since I was little girl I’ve had a thing for lip gloss. No matter the color, flavor or type; if it was a glossy delight, I wanted it… and still do.
It’s this love of lip treats that got me so excited to have my hands on one of the products in the Cake line by Topco, the Cookie Dough Delicious Kisser Lip Plumper. ( big thanks to SexToy.com for sending it my way)
Now I’m sure a lot of you are reading this review and thinking “but it’s not a sex toy”…and you’re right, it’s not.
However, considering that it was designed to possibly help people feel sexier with its “lip plumping” ability, become aroused by the tingly, warm feeling on their lips, not to mention the words “delicious kisser” sprawled across the front (hinting that it might make kissing a tad more enjoyable); it’s definitely worth covering in my books.
If there’s one thing I can say about the packaging – it’s adorable!!
Whether it’s the delicious looking cupcakes piled high with yummy icing, the word “Cake” sprawled across the front, or the flirty retro style pin up girl sitting in the middle, the packaging is pretty, alluring and something I think most ladies would love. There’s nothing on it that’s rude, crude or embarrassing – quite the opposite really, it’s something I’d expect to see in a large scale beauty supply store or a high-end retailer like Sephora.
*Unfortunately I’m pretty sure you can’t find it in any of the above (at the present date anyways), you’ll have to shop in a sexual wellness store or online to get your hands on it.
The clear gloss comes in a tube dispenser with a sponge tipped applicator. It’s not sticky or goopy, chalky, grainy, slimy or drying. Instead it’s light and slippery, allowing it to spread rather easily.
When I first tried it I expected it to absorb or wear off rather quickly, leaving my lips worse for the wear. Fortunately it lasted much longer than any of my other glosses, keeping my lips hydrated, soft and kissable for over an hour without needing to be reapplied.
As for the “cookie dough” scent, I’ll admit, they nailed it! Not only does it make my mouth water at the scent, but it smells like some of the yummiest, most delicious chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever smelled, fresh from the oven no less!! With that in mind, if you love dessert scents like Red Velvet Cupcakes, Devils Food or Angel Food, you’ll love the smell of the products in the Cake line!!
Unfortunately it didn’t taste much like cupcakes and to be honest, it didn’t taste like much at all – maybe a bit of mint after a few minutes, but that’s it (it contains Menthyl Lactate which could be why). I guess it’s a good thing considering it could taste like harsh chemicals or worse, yet doesn’t. Still, I would have liked for it to taste just a tiny bit like the scent. Win some, lose some I guess.
I’ll sadly admit I’m one of those people who’s curiosity tends to get the best of her when new products with big promises come out (I’ve tried the “vibrating wand” mascara from 3 different companies and 4 different brands of “lip plumper” so far). With that in mind, except for Lip Venum by DuWop there hasn’t been one type of “lip plumper” that’s really excited me or left me a believer.
Being that above mentioned brand is so expensive ($16.00 – $21.00) I was very hopeful that the Cake gloss at only $5.46 would be a decent, affordable and worthwhile option.
Sadly I can’t say for sure if it works as a plumper since I didn’t really notice much of a difference; my lips tingled and warmed, felt soft, smooth and had the same sensation as when I’ve used the DuWop one, yet upon looking in the mirror they didn’t look as full or “plump” as I would have liked or hoped for. They did flush with a healthy hint of added color (the gloss is clear) which was nice.
I asked a friend to try it so I could stare at her lips (not as hot as it sounds) and see if there was any change; her lips slightly changed in color (looked flushed), became a little more plump and she said they tingled and felt warm. But other then that there wasn’t much of a difference.
Be A Guilty Pleasure
Just like most “sex toys” I review there are of course alternative ways the Delicious Kisser Lip Plumper could be used:
For an added little tease and tingle apply some to your lips then give your partner a b.j. – the added tingle and warming from the gloss might be something he’d really enjoy. I know my partner liked the way it felt.
To make your nipples more sensitive apply a small amount then wait and see what happens. Out of curiosity (I said it gets the best of me) I did it and was really surprised with the warming sensation. My partner said the added scent and slight taste of cookie dough was a definite benefit for him.
Finally, if you’re with someone that you know is STD/STI free, are practicing a different method of protection than one that is made of latex (condoms, female condom, dental dam), aren’t allergic to any of the ingredients and would like to try something new, you could apply a small amount to the clitoris, give it about a minute and see if you like it. Again my curiosity got the best of me and I just had to see what happened; it provided a gentle warming feeling and slight tingling which made stimulation a little more pleasurable. Just don’t use it internally and only use a tiny bit if you’re going to be trying this.
*I mentioned latex because I don’t know if the product could be considered latex safe. Better safe than sorry right.
When it came to things I didn’t like there were two:
1.) It isn’t that great when it comes to making the lips look fuller or “plump”. That however could just be me, but I doubt it.
2.) The list of ingredients has quite a few big words and things I am in no way, shape or form familiar with. I might be wrong but I think it’s pretty clear it’s far from being anything close to chemical free.
Ingredients: Polybutene, Hydrogenated Polysobutene, Ethylene/Porpylene/Styrene Copolymer, Butylene/Ethylene/Styrene Copolymer, Mineral Oil, Trimethylopropane Tricaprate, Petrolatum, Menthyl Lactate, Flavor, Ammonium Glycyrrhizate, PEG-8, Tocopherol, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Ascorbic Acid, Citric Acid, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Tribehenin, Sorbitan Isosterate, Palmltoyl Oligopeptide, Dipalmitoyl Hydroxyproline, Porpylparaben.
While I wasn’t very impressed with the “lip plumping” results, I was most definitely pleased with everything else; as a tingly, warming, hydrating, yummy smelling and definitely adorable Cookie Dough lip gloss the product works wonderfully, especially considering it costs much less than other “high end” cosmetic glosses promising to leave your lips feeling and looking great.
Would I buy it with my own money again? Most definitely, I’d just try another scent in the line to add to my collection.
