DuWop Lip Venom Mini Trio #2 ($21.00)
A set of three powerful lip-plumping glosses. Already a classic, Lip Venom was the very first pout-pumping gloss on the market. It enhances the natural color and shape of the lips by increasing circulation with a blend of essential oils including cinnamon and ginger. The result: shiny, clearly diabolical lips. The trio includes original Lip Venom (clear), Pink Shimmer Lip Venom (with light-reflecting color for extra sheen and the illusion of full, plump lips), and Lip Venom 2 (contains Maxi Lip, a collagen-boosting ingredient that swells lips for hours), and comes packaged in a cute tin.
What makes it worth it: Your lips will definitely feel plushy and plump after applying one of these mini glosses. DuWop is known for their original Lip Venom formula (which you get here), as they were one of the first in the lip-plumping industry. These come in a great size, because you’re bound to get a few months of usage between the three minis included. I really liked the Pink Shimmer one, because the shimmer helps add additional reflecting power to your pucker to emphasize its fullness. I have to admit that I am not the best test subject as I was blessed with naturally full lips, though!
Why you might pass on it: If you want a lip plumping product that you cannot feel, this is not for you. DuWop Lip Venom products are not for the faint of lips, because you will most definitely feel the stinging/prickling sensation as your lips plump up.
