If you’re a lover of Too Faced Lip Injection then you’ve probably already heard of their new Color Bomb! Moisture Plumping Lip Tint. This product is available in six shades, so I ran off to Sephora to pick my fave shade for review, which ended up being Never Enough Nude.
What Sephora says about Too Faced Lip Injection Color Bomb! Moisture Plumping Lip Tint:
What it is:
A lip tint that combines Lip Injection’s plumping technology with an explosion of satin color stain to create the look of fuller, luscious lips.

What else you need to know:
This 100 percent cruelty-free tint comes in a variety of new shades, including a special fiery red inspired by actress Francesca Eastwood, who also created its signature name Eastwood Red.
Never Enough Nude is described as a warm beige. It comes across on me as a peachy-nude. My initial reaction was that of love. It is the perfect nude shade and wore nicely, applied easily… all cards falling into place for an A+ product. Also, it actually seemed to be plumping!
As I was taking swatch photos on my arm my mouth started to burn. Not tingle… searing, burning pain. The unbearable kind. This type of reaction to a lip plumping product is highly unusual for me. I’m that person who loves the feeling that the original Too Faced Lip Injection and DuWop Lip Venom give to the lips. I quickly scrubbed my lips to remove all traces of the product but they still burned and stung. I applied an ice pack for about 10-15 minutes. When I took it off my lips were red, as well as the skin around them and still throbbing. During that time I also removed the color from my arm and was met with red, irritated skin (see below).
What you see above is just my skin. It was more intense and a little raised in person. The nude shade of the lipstick is completely removed. My skin stayed like that for around 24 hours and the product only laid on my skin directly for about 5 minutes.
I definitely do not recommend this product and I’m still not over the shock of how my skin reacted to it. I spoke to a few other people who had a similar reaction. It’s unfortunate, because I’d have definitely bought the other shades if I hadn’t had that reaction. Oddly, I swatched them all in store on the back of my hand and my skin didn’t react at all. Maybe the batch? I don’t know, but mine went back immediately.
