Here It Comes ~ Huge Lips Skinny Hips

Oh yes, that's right; I said it ...

Huge Lips Skinny Hips

The gloss is the debut product by cosmetic brand PurpleLab. Huge Lips Skinny Hips is the brainchild of Karen Robinovitz, founder of PurpleLab (among others things). Don't get all skeptical by the name yet, let me give you the scoop first.

These are paraben-free glosses featuring Meadow Foam to bind moisture to the skin and Lemon Peel Oil to cool and soothe. Vitamin B3 stimulates blood flow to the lip surface, filling in wrinkles and plumping without much stinging or burning. I say 'much' stinging or burning because you do feel a slight tingle upon initial application; the tingle fades quickly. The 'skinny' part of the gloss is the inclusion of the ingredient hoodia. Now, the idea behind this isn't that you're going to garner so much appetite suppressing power from the gloss that pounds melt away. The idea is that it sets the thought of resisting food squarely in your mind with the presence of the yummy tasting gloss on your lips. A minute on the lips, a lifetime off the hips ... ha ha.

Ok, now let me tell you about the gloss experience itself. First of all, I've tried two of them, Lychee Martini and Worship Kate, and they are stunningly delicious! The flavor of the glosses alone is enough to keep you applying. As I said above, you'll probably experience a slight tingle upon initial application, but you'll also gain a nice plumping effect along with it. This is the first plumper I've tried where I can actually say my lips feel and appear pillowy. Yea for that! It's not going to render you Angelina, but the effect is lovely. The moisturization of the gloss is terrific. Truly, you'll see lines in your lips disappear and they'll feel softer. It's almost a balm-like feel after the gloss set in, and it is long-wearing.

I was a little apprehensive about the shades, as they appear quite pigmented in the tubes. Don't be afraid; they are very user friendly. There's a lovely sheer, shimmery quality to the colors. I was surprised I could wear even the warm, bright tangerine shade on my cool, pinky toned skin. Huge Lips Skinny Hips is oh so versatile. I can't wait to get more!

  1. This gloss really has a catchy name to it. I would be interested in trying this product and I bet it will be quite popular.

  2. Oh my gosh ... I really can't say enough good about these glosses. I've tried two so far and am amping up for more. The plumping effect is genuinely very nice and they are simply scrumptious on the lips.
