Review: Huge Lips Skinny Hips

Here is the latest post on the this brand by Purple Lab and Karen Rabinovitz

When I first received my tube of Huge Lips Skinny Hips lip gloss, I was just a smidge skeptical. The taglines for the product include "Double Duty Beauty" and "The Yummiest Lip Plumper Equipped With Hoodia (That's right girls, the appetite suppressant)." Hoodia is widely reported to work well, but in such tiny amounts? More on that later.

I love this product.

  • Packaging: Humourous purple hourglass shaped outer box. Inner clear lip tube.
  • Color: I have Red Shoes. It isn't too dark, and is stunningly complimentary.
  • Feel: There is a slight tingle to the product. Not so much it hurts, but enough to notice.
  • Look: This is a matte/soft sheen product.
  • Wear: Non-stick, no problem with hairy lips (if you know what I mean)
  • Taste: The taste and smell are wonderful. Although there is saccharin involved I also believe one of the natural components is adding to the sensation.
  • Angle: The use of Hoodia is for a reminder, rather than active weight loss additive. The story is if you wear the gloss, you'll remember to watch what you eat.

Formulator Karen Robinovitz has a fun backstory at her Purple Labs website. I'm hoping to swatch these colors, because I feel it is very difficult to judge on the website. There are also many layers to the site, so make sure you rollover to get apt product description, arty movies, etc.

Natural/Organic gals: Even though there are a number of oils, this product does not fall into either category.

Huge Lips Skinny Hips can be purchased at Amazon via b-glowing.
