I tried it ... Too Faced Lip Injection & Giveaway!

I read several blog reviews about a fabulous lip plumper by Too Faced called Lip Injection. Being I have a small upper lip, I thought I'd give this product a try ... retailing for $19, it seemed reasonable enough for a product review.

My before pic ... naked lips, nothing on them

5 minutes after application of Lip Injection ...
Holy Fire, Batman! My lips are BURNING! Red, tingling, like i just poured hot sauce on an open wound! NOT liking the pain, but powering through. I am a blogger with a review to write!

12 minutes after application ...

I can smile again because the fire ants quit biting. The outlines of my lips are a lovely hue of blood red, and while I was not actually bleeding, my lips were throbbing a bit. And they were not that noticeably plumper. With what I had just experienced, I should have had Angelina Jolie results!

So my review is not that fabulous. In fact, it is probably pretty scary to some of you. I did not like this product, nor did my lips.

However, Too Faced Lip Injection gets high marks in the beauty world and is adored by many! Wanna try it for yourself??

I snagged up an extra Lip Injection for one of my brave awesome readers to try!

Hi April!

Happy be-lated Birthday!!

I've never tried that lip gloss before. Not sure if I am brave enough... LOL but I'll leave a comment just to see if I would like it. Hope you're doing well!

Hugs & Joy, Jenni

I have tried this stuff before. I was NOT a fan. Fire ants is a pretty accurate description, I think :-)

I haven't entered any contests lately so I'm gonna enter this one.

I'm a follower. I want to try it because my upper lip is barely noticable. It's really small compared to my lower lip. I'm kinda scared of the pain but willing to risk it. At least once, anyways!

Love the purple streaks in your hair!

i used to use that stuff a few years ago. i actually LOVED the burn. felt like it was working. unfortunately (but fortunately for me) i've moved on to bigger and better lip glosses that aren't as sticky.
