Yesterday during my super duper mall excursion I saw the Twilight DuWop Lip Venom at Nordies. I am totally Team Edward so I decided to give it a go.
This version of the lip venom DOES contain cinnamon. When I chew cinnamon gum my tongue swells like a balloon. I was hoping for the same effect on my lips, and really I think it did give it a nice plump. After the first application it is PAINFUL. More so than the tingle of the original lip venom. Like it REALLY hurt for about a minute. But then it felt sort of cool.
I definately give this 4 out of 5 stars. Here is why:
It looks like something is wrong with my mouth. The stain in the tube is minimal unless you swirl around and dig in there. This was the first application where I got very little stain. As you can see, it sort of settled in areas. Anyway, seeing as how I experience issues when I chew cinnamon gum I grabbed a MAC wipe and removed the lip venom. I happily note that the weird discoloration went with it. I decided to try again....
On the second dip I got quite a bit more color and it shows. You do still have to be careful, as it still went on a bit uneven. I wouldn't recommend applying this without a mirror. After I took this pic the baby woke up and began to cry, I didn't want to smooch her with the venom on so I wiped it off & was met with...
AN AWESOME LIP STAIN
I have almost NO pigment in my lips. It was nice to see a bit here to add some color on my face.
I say.... go buy it! It's pretty cool! Retail $16.00 at Nordstroms.
