Review: DuWop Lip Venom in Buttercup

I love receiving exciting new products to play with and review for you guys – today it is the turn of the DuWop Lip Venom Lipgloss in Buttercup. A sample tube of it was in this month’s GlossyBox and it looked very fun indeed!

I don’t really have any lipglosses in this shade so I was intrigued to see what it would look like on the lips.

According to the accompanying leaflet, the full size lipgloss retails at £16 – that is an awful lot to pay for a gloss so I was hoping it would be spectacular!

When I first applied this to my lips I instantly hated the stickiness – sticky lipglosses don’t do it for me at all, so that was a big no-no. When it was entirely coating my lips, I actually felt that it ‘sunk in’ more and started to feel a lot better. Until a few seconds later…

In the above photo I’m desperately trying to stop my lips squirming about – talk about a tingling sensation!! Ok, so it’s meant to be ‘lip plumping’ (something I hadn’t realised) but the tingling feeling seemed to go on forever! I actually had to take it off in the end because it was starting to hurt: this is absolutely not what you want from a £16 gloss!

I know that some people really love these tingling, plumping lipglosses but I am not one of them. In fact, I hate them! The gloss looks lovely on the lips, don’t get me wrong…I just can’t be doing with the feeling that comes along with it. One other plus point – it smells like sweets and is really quite yummy!

Have you tried the DuWop Lip Venom Gloss in Buttercup, or any of the other shades? What do you think of it?

Stay Creative,

    It looks pretty, but I can’t stand sticky or stinging glosses either! I once paid 13 dollars for a lip gloss (the lady at the counter made it sound so nice, lol!) and when I got it home it was like glue on my lips and it made them puff up with red welts! It was gross. 🙁

      But luckily, I was able to return it. 😛
