Of Huge Lips and Skinny Hips

"I've seen it before
I'll see it again
A never ending story
Of deadlines, diets, and devious men"
* Girls Aloud, Deadlines and Diets

For those of you who are just tuning in, here are two things you must know:

1. I am always on the lookout for new beauty products designed to enhance my features
2. I have been on a perpetual diet since age 16, all in an effort to maintain a slim figure

Anything that leads me either to find A, or makes B easier, is more than alright in my book. Something that does both? Well, that's grounds for marriage.

Fate has led me to one such product by Purple Labs, Huge Lips Skinny Hips Lipgloss (a.k.a hot n' sexy in a tube). Huge Lips Skinny Lips is the brainchild of Karen Robinovitz of Purple Labs NYC, the original Jill of all trades, and a gorgeous beauty superstar. The concept behind Huge Lips Skinny Hips is a lip gloss that not only gives you sexy, pouty lips, but also helps curb your appetite, effectively whittling your waist to give you a sexy figure too.

This gloss is full of good for you ingredients including Vitamin e, essential oils, and orange peel extract. The plumping comes from Meadowfoam, an active ingredient that infuses the lips with luscious moisture to keep them looking full and pouty. Most plumpers sting, but not this one. Oh, and did I mention that hoodia in this gloss acts as an appetite supressant? That means that licking your lips when you are wearing this gloss will naturally make you feel less hungry. Sign me up for that!

Love Your Thighs is a juicy shade of coral/pink with a subtle golden pearl. This sparkling gloss is somewhere between sheer and pigmented, depositing via doe-foot applicator a healthy dose of buildable, luscious color. Speaking of luscious, this gloss smells and tastes like tropical fruit punch, making licking my lips my lips a necessity.

I can't speak of the weight loss effects of this gloss, because only time will tell that. What I can say is that this gloss made my lips look and feel great! Plump, moisturized, kissable and utterly yummy-looking. Yep, I am definitely loving it! So much so that I am changing 2 of my previous mantras:

A moment on the lips , forever on the hips becomes a moment on the lips but never on the hips. Nothing tastes as good as thin feels becomes nothing tastes better than my Huge lips Skinny Hips gloss. Catchy, I know ;)

Huge Lips Skinny Hips comes in 6 juicy shades ranging from sheer nude to vampy red. Each gloss is named after Karen's inspirations and icons, and the names are as fun to say as the glosses are fun to wear. You can find them all at

Here is a lip swatch, with me rocking Love Your Thighs, mwah!
