What in “blue blazes” (Happy belated #AustraliaDay) are those collagen lip jelly masks that I’ve been hearing about? ūüėĪ

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.
