I watched a woman apply a gloob of expensive lip gloss to her lips, then she winced in pain as she attempted to fan her lips with her hands while making a disgusted face.
“What’s wrong?” I asked
“Oh, its this lip plumper by Victoria Secret, it works really well it just burns horribly when I first apply it. After the burn goes away my lips just feel numb but they look great!”
Lip Fusion is a “moisturizing treatment gloss infused with advanced technology to plump lips instantly. This revolutionary formula consists of tiny, dehydrated, marine collagen microspheres that are instantly absorbed by the lips, and seek out the body’s natural moisture. When the microspheres are rehydrated, they plump and hold onto the moisture they’ve collected, creating a mild “swelling” of the lip tissue. The result is fuller, smoother, perfectly plumped lips in seconds. Results can last for up to 48 hours” ( VictoriaSecret.com )
I cannot believe the things some people do for beauty. Is having giant swollen lips really that important? Is it worth the pain and burning? Heaven forbid those lips touch a guy (in any way) I’d hate to see a guy suffer this burning sensation just because a women wanted slightly larger lips.
