I'm no stranger to testing lip plumpers (the tinglier, the better!), but when my fellow editor, Caitlin, dropped this on my desk with a knowing look, I knew I was up for a challenge. And a challenge it was. This lip plumper hands down takes the cake for being the most intense formula I have ever placed on my lips. Think wasabi to the fifth power. Wasabi that plumps your lips to perfection.
The product: Violent lips
What it is: It's a temporary lip plumper that applies like a temporary tattoo. The longer you can take the tingle, the bigger and bolder your results will be. It's made with six natural ingredients like cinnamon oil and peppermint to deliver the ultimate plumping power. After you take it off, you'll notice a plumper, firmer, and rosier looking pout. It's also possible you'll feel the tingle for a few hours. It took four for mine to wear off.
Our take: They weren't joking with the name! I handed Violent Lips to other colleagues to see what they thought and their results were even more intense than mine! (Seriously, you should have seen our graphic designer.) Her already plumped pout enhanced even more, and even her tingling sensation lasted for a few hours.
Bottom line: I'm pretty sure the bigger your lips are the more of an effect you'll see. Overall, I'd say I'm pretty glad I tried this product. I've never experienced anything like it before. It's quirky and unique, clearly a must for any beauty gal. But admittedly, it's also a little too intense for an everyday wear. If you're looking for a fun, photo-worthy accessory that will give you a plumper pout, I'd say it's totally worth a shot!
