When I was growing up, I used to be so self-conscious about my big, full lips. I was a very slim girl with a small face and small features. My ears and nose were tiny and cute. But my lips? They stood out like a sore thumb. I was teased a lot about my lips as a kid and as a I grew into a teen I began to hate them. I used to wish my lips were smaller and more dainty. Man, those days were rough!
Now, I look back and laugh because full lips are so in style that people are paying big bucks to have them. If I could go back in time and give my younger self a piece of advice I’d say, “Girl you better flaunt them lips!” Having big lips isn’t a flaw or imperfection. If anything, it’s a blessing because there’s more room for bomb lipsticks and glosses. Just look at Kylie Jenner. She got lip injections and bam! Now she’s a social media sensation with a successful makeup brand. The possibilities of big lips are endless!
If you would have told my younger, self-conscious self that I’d be rocking lip plumping glosses to amp up the juiciness of my lips I probably would have looked at you crazy. But here I am at 26 fully embracing my full lips and loving them so much that I want them to be even bigger. Go big or go home!
For months, I’ve been obsessed with the Too Faced Lip Injection Power Plumping Lip Gloss because it makes my lips look fuller, more pronounced and lightly moisturizes them with spicy tingling effect. At first, I had no interest in trying Too Faced’s Lip Injection Gloss because my lips are naturally full and voluptuous. Then one day, I soon grew curious to try it after so many guests at Ulta kept asking for my recommendations of lip plumpers. The conversation would always make me giggle.
“What’s a good lip plumper?”
“Too Faced Lip injection. It’s our top selling lip plumper here.”
“Ooh really?! Have you tried it?”
LOL! Every time I was asked, I would slyly smirk and respond, “Umm, no. My lips are already pretty full.” It was always a good laugh for me and every guest that asked. I obviously don’t need any help achieving a fuller pout but after being asked so many times I decided to humor myself. “Let’s see how this works,” I said to myself.
So i grabbed a disposable lip gloss wand, dipped it into Lip Injection and let it do its magic. After about a minute or so, I felt an intense tingle on my lips. Like a light stinging sensation. It’s not too harsh or anything so it didn’t hurt but it’s a very noticeable tingle. Then, my lips start to feel more soft, smooth and comfortable. I went to take a quick peek in the mirror to see if Lip Injection was all it was really cracked up to be and my mind was blown. My lips were so juicy! In a matter of minutes, my lips looked fuller, juicier and more pronounced than ever. I finally understood why Too Faced’s iconic Lip Injection was always flying off the shelf at my Ulta. This gloss is life!
Lip Injection instantly increases the size of your lips with a lingering effect that lasts for quite a few hours (around 3-5). i loved how it amped up my already full lips and made them look more structured and kissable. Lip Injection is now my holy grail lip primer because it seriously defines my cupid’s bow, makes my lips look more full and helps my lipsticks and glosses glide on like butter. Kylie Jenner ain’t got nothing on me and my Lip Injection!
It’s easy to think that Too Faced’s Lip Injection is all hype after reading the reviews but I assure you that the hype is real. Lip Injection is the truth! Whether you’re in early Kylie Jenner stage (pre injections) or sporting full lips like Kylie Jenner now, you’re bound to love Lip Injection because it’s really works. And it works fast! I highly recommend trying the Too Faced Lip Injection Gloss to plump up that pout and give you a little extra room to go lipstick crazy. I don’t know how I lived without it!
