There was a Christmas fundraiser at work a couple of weeks ago, and they were selling really high-quality cosmetics at really cheap prices to raise money for charity. Obviously I attended and didn’t purchase anything ’cause I was like, “WHY WOULD I????”, right? Wrong. Of course I got something! Two things, actually… But, this’ the first of my posts.
I bought Zelens’ lip enhancer lip balm which is in the shape of a lipstick… Lovely!
I’ve got to be honest, I paid £5 for it thinking it’s a clear, lipstick that’s going to enhance and volumize my lips, making them look kissable for all the frogs & princes that are going to avoid me like repellant. #GottaShowThemWhatTheyreNotMissing
Anyway, back to this… I was expecting Zelens’ Lip Enhancer to burn my lips like a mothertrucker… But, it didn’t! Hurrrrray! It smells like cocoa-butter and felt very creamy on the lips. I felt a very mild, comfortable tingle – that was it. Literally.
Did it makes my lips (which now that we’re on the subject, I have relatively pancake-y ones) plumper? I mean, it made my lips ORANGE, unbeknownst to me that it was tinted. I found faint orange marks above my lips where I had over-lined… Now’s the time to mention that I didn’t apply it using a mirror, because I thought it was flipping transparent. NO. No it wasn’t… I looked like a CLOWN who took time to make-up their lips and nowhere else. Classy!
Back to the main point of this post we go… Did it grow my lips? No. I mean, it looked slightly perter, but to be fair, it is December, freezing and the blood be rushing absolutely everywhere before pneumonia and frost bite is acoming! The cold weather makes everyone’s lips look huger and purpler. Well, I’m basing this hypothesis on what happens to me. I am 7billion+ people. Thanks!
So, what have we learned in this post? It’s a placebo thing. If you think it’s working, it’ll work. If you don’t think it’s working – you won’t look for a difference. Lip balms/sticks aren’t going to make your lips bigger. You need more than that. What I would say though, don’t try fillers. It doesn’t look great at all.
I’ll be posting about a natural lip enhancer device that I use to get naturally plump lips, soon… Trust me, you’re going to want to read it – and know about it. It’s great.
FINAL WORDS: GIVE TO CHARITY. HELP AS MUCH AS YOU CAN. IF YOU CAN’T GIVE MONEY, GIVE TIME. IF YOU CAN’T GIVE TIME, RAISE AWARENESS THROUGH OTHER MEANS.
