The word should be out there by now with regards to the lip gloss girls dream about. That is, Purple Lab's Huge Lips Skinny Hips lip plumper. With the same rectangular design as LipFusion, the Huge Lips Skinny Hips lip gloss is the first of its kind because it is infused with Hoodia, an appetite suppressant.
I bought one a couple of weeks ago in the Lychee Martini shade/flavor, and it is one extremely tasty lip gloss. I don't see a big plumping effect though it does have a nice tingly feeling to it (caused by the lemonpeel oil). Did it affect my appetite? Not really. But it is still one fun lip gloss to have.
If you were like me, you would have tons of questions around the Huge Lips Skinny Hips. For one, what is hoodia and is it a true appetite suppressant?
Well, the short answer is, there are many types of hoodia, but the one that actually has been found suppressing appetite is hoodia gordonii, a herb successfully used by the San Bushmen. The herb tricks the brain into thinking that the body has enough sugar. In animal trials, the lab animals have lost weight. However, since human trials are lacking, there may be unknown side effects.
The next question that pops to mind is whether Huge Lips Skinny Hips really works. I won't reinvent the wheel because The Beauty Brain has already done a review on that question. To be concise, women may ingest from 2 to 9 lbs of lipstick in their lifetime, but there is probably too little hoodia in Huge Lips Skinny Hips to make a difference either way (i.e., suppressing appetite or any unknown side effects). Well, like I said, it didn't affect my appetite, but any placebo effect is welcomed, and it is sure one tasty lip gloss to replace my need to munch.
