It is very rare for me to come across a product that I dislike; the only product that I have come across so far is the E.l.f Baked Eye-shadow Palette in Texas. It's not that the product is necessarily a really bad product, but just because it doesn't work as well for me. What I hate another person might actually really love. That being said I love to give anything a chance and this product is no exception.
I picked up this Too Faced Lip Injection Color Bomb! in the colour Coral Pop a few months back. Too Faced has so far came out with some amazing products that I really love - like the Chocolate Bar Palette and the Exotic Colour Intense Eye-shadows -which made me really eager to try a lip product.
As with all Too Faced products the packaging is super cute and girly. The tube reflects the colour of the actual product with a gold cap and bottom. The format is essentially a bullet shaped chubby stick, that you have to wind up the bottom to access more product.
The Lip Injections are described on the website as giving up to 20% more volume to the lips. With such a large percentage increase, I knew that ultimately the formula would be stronger than any of the other lip plumpers that I had previously tried - such as Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker. I actually enjoy the tingling sensation that my lips experience with lip plumpers, so I though I knew what I was getting into.
This BURNT! My lips experienced a tingling sensation similar to what I expected, which quickly turned into a burning itchy feeling. It felt like lots of tiny little burning hot pinpricks on my lips (I am wearing this as I type to accurately describe the feeling). It was quite uncomfortable for roughly five to seven minutes.
The colour is highly pigmented, as expected from any Too Faced product, and I thinks goes so well with my colouring. It's finish sat somewhere between a satin and a matte; the longevity was similar to a matte - lasting a good few hours- but there was a moisturising element to the product too. There is a slight smell to the product, it's really nostalgic to my childhood. I can't really describe it other than sweet and sugary - possibly strawberries?
Other than the short burning sensation, I really like the product. It says to discontinue use if you experience discomfort, but I think I will still use it sparingly. If it looks like a product that you would enjoy using then you can buy it from any Too Faced beauty counter at Debenhams for £19.00.
