Oy vey!… why don’t I ever learn from prior beauty fuck ups? OK, let me start from the start. I’ve been on a quest to find glitter lipstick or basically anything that’ll make my lips sparkle, you know, next level lipstick! I had seen some kind of lipstick/glitter combo from MAC and desperately wanted it, so when I was in the States in July I scoured MAC and Sephora and I kept drawing blanks. All the sales people looked at me like I had a booger on my chin – basically they thought I was on crack and never heard of it! WHAT?!
Not one to be discouraged I searched online for something that would fit the bill and I came across these Lip Rock Metallic Lip Foils. How gorgeous and perfect do they look? RIGHT?! So I immediately bought a pack from Priceline and eagerly awaited their arrival…I mean I even paid for express postage so they arrived sooner.
So they arrived and I ripped open the pack (after I took pics, obvs!) and thought “this is too easy”. Basically you paint on the glue, kinda like eyelash glue, and wait til it goes clear and tacky and apply the foil side down onto your lip and press hard and rub in the foil and apparently voila – awesome lips like the pic. This is what happened for me….
NADA!! Not even a tiny speck of foil was left on my lips!!! Just some gross glue and aching lips….
What the actual fuck Lip Rock?! This is twice now you’ve burnt me. I know I know, what’s that saying; Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me. Well dollface, I have been shamed! Never again will I purchase anything from this naff company! That’s $5.50 (plus express post delivery) well and truly wasted! And even now as I’m writing this post my lips are still aching hours later after ripping off the glue – OUCHIES!
OK peeps, hit me with your best glitter lipstick. I’m still jonesing for a fix of fabulousness.
