Just Call Me OctoMom

I bought a new lipstick on Friday morning.  I'm almost out of my most beloved MAC Retro and I needed some new blush, too.  There was a buy one get one free deal at CVS this week so I went ahead and got some lipstick and blush.  I didn't pay close attention to the specific kind of lipstick I was purchasing.  I was mainly focused on the colors.  Plus, I had Eva with me so it was a quick trip. 

I didn't open my new lipstick until yesterday morning.  I was surprised to have my lips tingle and they plumped up quite significantly.  I thought I might be having an allergic reaction or something.  Then, I looked at the case.  It is VolumeXL Seduction Plumping Lip Color.  I got Petal Attraction, which I thought would be a bit darker.  Oh well.

I updated my facebook yesterday and generated so many comments about my new plump lips, I decided to do a comparison for the blog.  I took these this morning.  I tried to get the same distance from my lips as possible so you can see the difference.

Can you tell a difference?


  1. Yes, it looks like it works! As long as you can handle the tingle!

  2. That. Is. Awesome. Plump it up!

  3. Who would of thought they meant it. Looks great, that lipstick is a keeper

  4. Definitely. And I think I need some.

  5. Love the color! Even if it doesn't really plump up your kisser, the effect looks fabu-- definitely a keeper.

  6. Weird! I've never heard of plumping lipstick. It looks great on you, but I'm glad to know to avoid that lipstick because I have a big mouth to begin with.

  7. It's like those Reebok pump shoes. . .for your lips!!

  8. Nice. I like that color.

  9. Holy Cow, I have no lips, my upper lip really is pencil thin....I may have to try this out....for real
