Hope you all are having a good weekend. This morning I've received a parcel from Aliexpress. Guess almost every woman knows that site. If you don't know what it is - it's a Chinese site where they sell cheap stuff from makeup to furniture, etc., etc. Shipping is usually free unless stated otherwise and items you bought will probably take from 2 weeks to 3 months to arrive depending on where you live.
So a month ago I ordered this so-called '' Lip Plumper''. Got one pack of 10 pcs for only £2.21 + free shipping. I always read reviews, especially the ones with pictures included, and I suggest you do the same, for your safety. It's always better to get an item where you can see people bought it and got exactly what it said in the description. Anyway, this time there was only like two reviews, but I wanted to try it out, so I risked and ordered.
The package looked good, just as it was shown in pictures, the only thing that worried me, all ten little packs were stuck with each other, so I had to separate them with my fingers, but I guess it happens when you're sending parcels.
Once I opened it, all the fluids just popped all over my jeans because of the pressure, so if you'll be buying it place a towel or something before opening to make sure you'll not ruin your clothes. First thing I took off the package, was this white plastic lip plumper holder, and it was all sticky and wet because of the fluids.
I was still concerned, so I kept going. The last thing I took off the package was the real lip plumper. Please note, it's only one time usable, so You have to throw it away after using! I honestly imagined it to be way different, but it looked like a piece of lip-shaped gum, and it was also sticking to my fingers all the way while I tried to apply it onto my lips.
When I finally managed to put it on my lips without it falling off, I realized this was a huge mistake. Not only it was all sticky, but it tasted horrible! Have you ever got makeup removal into your mouth or on your lips by accident? If you did, you know the taste is awful. So this lip plumper tasted precise like the makeup removal taste like. I had to keep it on my lips for approximately 15-20 minutes, and it was most awful minutes of my life.
After 20 minutes of suffering that horrible taste on my lips, I was finally able to take it off, hoping that my lips will look like after some botox injections or something. Sadly, it was just another disappointment, they were all red and sore, but not any bigger or better looking. So basically, I kept that awful sticky thing on my lips for absolutely no reason. Do I recommend this thing? No. Unless You buy it off from some better-known shop, and not from China.
