A lot of cosmetic companies are selling lip plumpers these days, but the vast majority do it with a chemical combination I can only imagine! But DuWop has created their own natural plumping lip stain with Pure Venom, and there’s not a scary ingredient in the list. In fact, the ingredients are 100% natural and 90% organic!
I’ve been testing out their two shades of stain (Pure Berry and Pure Nude), and I’ve gotta say I’m pretty impressed. The results aren’t Angelina Jolie drastic, but rather a subtle, natural fullness that seems to come more from the slight shimmer in the tints and slightly from a physical plumping effect. The long-lasting shades are beautiful, and I’d say they compliment most skin tones. Pure Nude is a sheer tint with just a hint of pinkish-peach, while Pure Berry is a nice evening shade with a deeper berry red tone. Both colors add shine to the lips without being too glossy, and neither one feathers or bleeds like I’ve experienced with numerous other natural lip colors. With the addition of cinnamon leaf and other essential oils, the lips have a hot/cool sensation, almost a slight tingly sting.
Overall, I love the DuWop Pure Venom lip stains. Great colors, long wear, and all natural. The tins are adorable and easily slip into purse or pocket, and that cinnamon fragrance is addictive! Well worth the try. And speaking of trying…I’ve got a set of two tins to give to one lucky winner! One tin of Pure Berry and one of Pure Nude, this set retails for $48 (or $24 a piece).
