Duwop Lip Venom

Description on their website:
Lip Venom was the very first lip plumper on the market, creating the lip plumping category for the beauty industry. The tingly gloss uses essential oils to enhance lips' natural color and shape by increasing circulation. The result: fuller bee stung lips.

The secret behind Lip Venom is a blend of essential oils, which include cinnamon, wintergreen, and ginger, that cause the blood to rush to the surface of the lips, flushing and swelling them slightly. The gloss also includes jojoba and avocado oil that moisturize and give the lips intense shine. You end up with a shiny, naturally rosy pout that cannot be achieved by wearing ordinary lip gloss.

DuWop Lip Venom is sulfate-free, petro-chemical-free, fragrance-free, dye-free, free of pthalates, no GMO's, no PPG's, no MEA's DEA's, TEA's, is formaldehyde-free, and triclosan-free.

DuWop does not use animal testing on any of their products.

My thoughts:
Really gives a tingly sensation a minute after application. I immediately felt my lips getting bigger and pouter =) Its spicy but tolerable (or maybe I'm just used to spicy glosses/lipbalms).

The tube packaging that came with it is cute, but when I opened it I got shocked coz the Lip venom itself is so tiny! Its only 2.5 inches! But you only need a small amount to make your lips shiny & full.

I think this is a bit expensive for a lip plumper but it really does the job.

For cheaper alternatives, you would want to try :
ELF's Plumping Lip gloss (Php 125) and Sally Hansen's Lip Plumper (Php 599).

See ya next time! =)

The reason why Lip Venom is expensive because it boasts of Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton as one of its users. Now that's a very big contributing factor :)

AskMeWhats said...

I have never tried and will NEVER try any of the lip plumping products because of my thick lips! but it's nice to read reviews from people who has used it ! :)

Pammy said...

i once had this but i swore i'll never buy one again because my lips went pale and the stinging was just too much. it's like my lips had red and white patches. i hope it works for you and you won't have a bad experience like mine. :)

btw, MAC's plushglass sort of gives a plumping effect since it is kinda minty. reminded me of lip venom, only a little more subtle.

@ beauty junkee - that's good to know! =)

@ verina - yeah the plumping works but disappears after 20 mins or so..

@askmewhats - you're blessed with pouty lips na eh! =) **inggit**

@ pammy - the stinging for me is tolerable. I expected more pa nga eh! hehe.

Miss Shopcoholic said...

@ pammy - so sad the Lip venom didnt work for you.
