The other day I was aimlessly walking through Urban Outfitters when I came across a table of lip products. One of those products was DuWop's notorious Lip Venom. I had always wanted to try this product but for some reason had never purchased it. I bought one and put it on as soon as I got in my car. Wow. It was very tingly. I checked DuWop's website to see what it is that creates that slight "burny" feeling. The main ingredients responsible for the tingle and the plumping are:
Lip Venom also contains jojoba and avocado oil which give your lips a lovely sheen. Honestly, I feel like this stuff works. My lips looked as though they had been stung by a bee. They also felt as though they had been stung by a bee, but only for about 5 minutes. I will be in pain for 5 minutes if for the next few hours my lips look plump and glossy.
One thing to consider though is warning those who may come in contact with your lips. Mr. Doll still looks at me warily if my lips are even the tiniest bit shiny. He insists that his lips were numb for days...whatever. My lips looked good, and that was the whole point, right?
This is a picture that I took 45 minutes after I had applied the product. I have no other makeup on, so as you can see Lip Venom also gives your lips a bit of a rosy glow. I would spend another $16 on this product.
