Now that I've got things up and in motion on my blog, I'm going to be a doing a lot of reviews and things on here that I don't show on my YouTube channel. And here's the first review:
Sally Hansen Lip Inflation Extreme.
This stuff claims to plump your lips.
Here's what the site says:
- The dramatic solution for full, smoochable lips.
- See extreme results without professional treatments.
- Micro-spheres with exclusive Hydro-Collagen Complex help boost fullness and shine to the extreme.
- Spicy gloss enhances lip's natural color so they appear pinker, healthier and fuller.
- Guaranteed Visible Results.
- Dermatologist Tested.
Hydro-Collagen Complex with Marine Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid capture and retain moisture contributing to the immediate dramatic effect."
So I decided to try it. I already have slightly big lips but I don't think them being more pouty can be a bad thing. I've tried other lip plumpers in the past with no results. Maybe it's because my lips are already a little bigger? Or maybe it's cuz the lip plumpers don't actually work?
When I took out the wand I saw it's very long and it's got a brush applicator instead of a felt tip one. I'd rather it have the felty one, I think those apply better. But this is clear so it doesn't really matter, I guess. It smells like a really sweet cinnamon smell. I can't really stand the smell of sweet stuff so it was a little bit overwhelming.
I put the stuff on and waited. There was the very slightest hint of a "tingle"? Maybe more like a stinging. But only in the slightest so it wasn't bothersome. The tingling didn't get any worse and just kind of faded after about 2 minutes.
I looked in the mirror and noticed that my lips had a little more color to them but they didn't look much bigger. The top lip looked maybe a little more pouty than usual but it was more like a "I have to look extremely close in the mirror and try not to just convince myself that this stuff is actually working" moment.
Here is a before and after:
So in conclusion, I don't think this stuff is worth the trouble. It didn't really do anything as you can see. It's up to you if you want to get it but I'd say save your money.
Keep smiling :)
