What Women Want? Huge Lips,Skinny Hips?

A few days ago I received an email from Ron Robinson of Fred Segal which is an online store that sell all types of merchandise including bath, body, and beauty products. And they also happen to sell one of my favorite fragrances-Apothia If. The subject of the email was "What Women Want" and the answer was Huge Lips Skinny Hips by Purple Lab. Would you like to know what
Huge Lips Skinny Hips is? Well, it is a plumping lip gloss and appetite suppressant in one. Yup, you read it right-a lip gloss that suppresses appetite. The gloss contains Hoodia which is a natural appetite suppressant found in certain plants from South Africa. It also contains vitamin B3 which is suppose to stimulate " blood flow to the lip surface, filling in wrinkles and plumping without stinging or burning" as the site says.

Huge Lips will run you about $20 or more and comes in four varieties of which one is inspired by Kate Moss ( called Worship Kate). I got this email Friday, July 31st and today (Aug. 3rd) the Worship Kate gloss is already out of stock. WOW!

So what do ya think? Would you try it? As for me I don't have $20 these days to spend on a one tube of lip gloss. My money is going toward the bare necessities and my jewelry making needs.
However if I had more dispensable income I might give it a go just for the heck of it. God knows I've spent more than my fair share of money on products that don't do what they claim-especially skincare. At least if this gloss does not hold up to claims it probably won't break me out (like some skincare) and I could use it all up (unlike some skincare). Anyway, I like to know your thoughts. Do you find it innovative or think its preying on women's need to be skinny? I'd like to know.


  1. Don't need the big lips but I can use the skinny hips.

  2. Interesting concept, clever marketing ploy. Don't think I'd buy it though because like you said, I don't have $20 these days to be spending on lip gloss! LOL. But I am curious... could it actually work?

  3. I do love a nice lip gloss, but I don't think I love it $20 bucks. Guess I will just bruise along with my skinny lips and huge hips.

  4. Thank you so much for writing about it!!! I love hearing everyone's input!!!! You have such a great blog!

  5. Oh wow! You're the creator @ Karen? Cool! Thanks for dropping by and commenting.

  6. I don't have the $20 to spare these days, but would totally like to hear from someone who has used it.
