What in “blue blazes” (Happy belated #AustraliaDay) are those collagen lip jelly masks that I’ve been hearing about? 😱
They’re like a mask (for the lips) packed with collagen which claim to be lip-plumping and lift the contours of our lips so that they appear bigger, fuller and more poutier.
YouTubers and Instagrammers alike have been upping the ante on promoting them, sharing videos of them trying it out and now it’s gone viral (less of an infection, more of an Internet sensation).
I haven’t tried the “lip jellies” personally but the results which I have seen look incredible. However, I’m not sure if it’s a trick of a Photoshop switch and a marketing ploy by celebs / non-celebs or if they actually work… Either way, it’s pretty impressive!
Why am I sceptical about whether they work on not? I say this because I purchased a Fullips lip enhancer, which worked, but it still didn’t give the results I saw on YouTube from others… Maybe I didn’t use it right or maybe my lips aren’t suitable for the one which got delivered (as there are various sizes), but I’m not sure… I did notice a difference at first, but now that a year or so has passed since using it, I have to say that I have since become underwhelmed with the result.
I now rely on over-lining my lips with matte liquid lipsticks as I don’t want my lips to get bruised nor swollen. All I really want is a fuller pout.
Truthfully, I’m not sure if I’ll be purchasing the lip jellies… I might do for fun, to test them out on here, but I’m torn. I may just note the ones I’ve heard of, embed the videos of results and do a bit of research on other people’s views. That’s what I might do, it’ll be more of a feature than a review, so keep an eye, nose or cheek out.
