hi!I received the Too Faced Lip Injection gloss in my February Sephora Play box and didn’t think my of it. Since I have big luscious African lips, I’m pretty much not the target market for this product. But I’m a sucka for freebies and was really more intrigued by the colour of the gloss than by the product and it’s promises. I really should have done my research before I smacked it in my lips!
So what is the Too Faced Lip Injection -Glossy?
The too faced Lip Injection lip gloss is one of those Lip products that deliver colour and enough “irritation” to the lips to make them swell up and look fuller. I actually like Too Faced play on words here with the lip injections Hollywood starlets, icons and Scottsdale soccer moms are prone to getting. I am not too sure what this product uses as the irritant product, but boy is it irritating.
It might as well have been capsaicin, that itchy smelly ingredient in icy hot products. Holy crap it burned the top layer of my lips off! I get it, big fat juicy lips are in right now, but Mother of God, who came up with this bull shit? I literally wanted to cry and had to wash it off after less than 5minutes. This needs a warning label. Even after I washed it off the burning continued – mild tingling my arse, this shit made me pray for holy water! whooooh – living on a prayer indeed.
Does it work? No idea, I didn’t leave it long enough to see any effect. Honestly, you would have to be lip-less to find this worth the pain. Ouch. Keep your money folks, and if you got the freebie sample then throw it away and save your lips.
