DuWop Lip Venom- "Du" or Don't?

Okay, so I’m not familiar with DuWop cosmetics as I’ve never had the chance to try something by them before this product. Supposedly, Lip Venom was the very first lip plumper on the market, creating the lip plumping category for the beauty industry. This very tingly gloss uses essential oils to enhance your lips natural colour and shape by helping increase circulation.
The Venom is a mixture of essential oils like cinnamon and ginger. These, among others, help blood rush to the surface of your lips making them appear swollen or fuller. That’s the DuWop claim, anyway.

So anyways, here’s what I thought about DuWop’s lip venom..
 I bought the venom from Shoppers Drug Mart (Yes, you can get it there- which is nice and convenient) for about $20.00. That being said, it is a little expensive for the amount that you get. (The bottle is about the size of your pinky finger.. unless you have huge man-hands like my sister. Sorry Katie! ;) ) Anyways, when I first applied the tiny glass vial and applied it to my lips. I felt the tingle almost imeadiately and checked out my lips in the mirror. Okay, so they weren’t exactly Angelina Jolie-esque, but they still looked quite a bit fuller. Further, the venom smells great and it gave my lips a very natural, rosy appearance. The gloss is also extremely glossy and lasts quite a long time. One of the only disadvantages is that your boyfriends virgin lips might not be able to handle the tingle. (Mine couldn't) BTW- since the bottle is so small, a good trick in salvaging it is to only apply the lip plumper to the middle, fullest part of your lips.
Get it or Forget it? If you have the money and are dying for a little pout (especially if you’re going to be taking a lot of photos somewhere) I suggest you buy! Also, take into consideration how pricy lip plumpers can get.. DuWop lip venom is probably going to get you the most bang for you buck. You can get it here for $16.00 ->
