Still Just Missy here. My general beauty/ skin care products are purchased from Whole Foods, with the occasional Target buy. I do believe the recent trip to Sephora I took with Ruby was my first time there. I really wanted something for my lips, but not lipstick. I never find a shade that I prefer over my natural color, but I always want them to look smoother, softer, and a bit shinier. So when I spotted Two Faced: Instantly Sexy Lips I knew I needed to try it. The box came with some hefty promises.. more on that below. I also have to note, needles scare the heck out of me, so had I realized the box said “Lip Injection”. I may have put it down and ran away screaming.. I digress.

Missy – Ok, this product has a lot to live up to, as stated boldly on the front: 97% of people said it delivers instant results, 97% say their lips felt moisturized, 93% Said lips look fuller and more plump. There is also a note advising not to apply to the skin surrounding lips, and that my lips may experience a slight intense tingle (doesn’t that sound kind of like an oxymoron.. just me?) So I’m optimistic, although a bit unsure, mostly because I am thinking of injections, and needles..
Missy – Ok, I’m gonna come right and say it, its pretty intense feeling on my lips. Tingly, almost to the point of discomfort. I must have accidentally touched the skin around my lips, as it definitely burns/ itches a bit. Full disclosure, I did have the slightest of chapped lips when applied. My lips are defiantly shiny, but in a good way, not like they are wet. I can really see some added fullness. I am one of the 3% who doesn’t feel like this has moisturized my lips. They feel slick, but it feels like the gloss is sitting on top of my lips, not penetrating with any moisture.
Missy – So I didn’t remove this product, I just let it wear off on its own, like any other lip gloss. It would need to be somewhat frequently reapplied for full day results.
Missy – I’ll keep this in my beauty products and surely use it again. I don’t think this will be a daily, or even weekly use product. Since I don’t typically like to wear lipstick, but sometimes want to draw a little extra attention to my lips, this product will be perfect for that. It is a bit uncomfortable for me for a few minutes (thanks for the heads up, box!) but gets better pretty fast.
