Us small lip girls are always on the look out for some nonsurgical Kylie Jenner miracles. Or maybe it’s just this small lip girl, I don’t know! Regardless, I got bamboozled into another impulse purchase. Damn.
In general I am not a great lipstick wearer. I eat it somehow or my hair gets stuck in it drags color across my face, it’s just usually a big mess. And to be honest I had tried “lip plumper’s” in the past and they were actually really uncomfortable. I’m a firm believer in no pain, no gain or whatever but damn! But, for some reason when I saw this ad for City Lips on the internet I clicked on it and went to their website. Apparently ABC had done some lip plumper tests and some scientists had measured the results and found City lips to have increased lip size by 3mm. That’s like nothing in reality but they also said it was not painful so I decided to give it a whirl. (when I was proofreading this paragraph it really struck me what a gullible a-hole I am. It’s pretty funny…)
It sells on Amazon anywhere from $30-$40.
There isn’t any aroma, which I guess is good since a nasty smell could be a big turn off.
Application is easy, it’s a thicker consistency so its easy to apply. I got clear because like I said earlier, I am not great at the whole lipstick thing. At least with clear I can apply it on the go and not worry about looking like a clown or getting it all over my teeth. Literally a director once had to stop a scene we were filming so the makeup artist could clean off my front teeth. That was awesome. Another time we had to cut a scene because I had a pointy nipple. They asked me to put tape over my nipples under my yoga shirt. How humiliating is that? Very, it’s very humiliating let me assure you.
3-5 minutes, WTF It’s Working!
Look how big! LOL. So, so sexy. It goes on smooth, and after a few minutes you can feel something happening. Your lips get a bit stiff? It’s hard to explain, I imagine it’s what a guy feels like in his britches when he gets a boner. It’s like all this blood went to my lips – and although they didn’t look like Angelina Joli’s lush pillows they certainly felt very full and a bit stiff. And no pain, no burning sensations whatsoever. I noticed when I tried to pucker up they felt very tight. You can see the strain in my face above.
I don’t know, can you see anything in the before/after? I’m not even sure I can haha. Either way, after a few weeks of use I am totally sold. I feel like it works, it’s not like anyone has stopped me on the street or anything like, damn girl, your lips so fine! But at the same time when I apply it my lips turn a red color so it’s almost like a color. I find myself using it all the time. It’s so easy and it has a really great shine and it’s moisturizing. A+ for City Lips. I don’t know if it’s a placebo effect or what but I’m feeling good when I wear it so I guess I am sold.
awkward selfie. Have you guys used any great lip plumpers? What can I do to stop lipstick creep? Lip liner just doesn’t cut it!!!
