Friday Flop: Fusion Beauty’s LipFusion Infatuation Lip Fattener… or I spent $31.03 on WHAT?
Hi, I’m Liza. I blog at Cira’s Lyrics and can also be found on twitter. When Britt put out the call for people to review and write at Buy-Her I was very excited to be a part of it as I’ve been an admirer of her blogs for a few years.
Today I thought we’d talk about Fusion Beauty’s LipFusion Infatuation Lip Fattener.
I have been on a quest since I was about 14 or 15 years old to get perfectly plumped lips (without a collagen injection because, well, a needle to my lips frankly scares the crap out of me). Lets go back to where it started. It was the early 1990′s. I spent the summer babysitting kids who spent the summer playing outdoors at a friends house. What’s on during the day? Soaps I discovered. Days of Our Lives. Lisa Rinna played Billie Reed and I wanted lips.like.that.
Little did I know then you probably couldn’t get her lips, uh, naturally shall we say. And truth be told maybe I don’t want them that big, but I would love them to be fuller and plumper. Over the years I have spent time and money looking for the perfect plumper. I have tried more than I can count, and even siphoned some from my sister when she wasn’t looking. (Sorry Ali!) Each one worked a little, just not enough for what I wanted.
I had read about Fusion Beauty’s LipFusion Infatuation Lip Plumper “the most revolutionary breakthrough in lip plumping technology” according to their website and thought my quest was finally over. Heck, even Kim Kardashian is endorsing it so it Must be true, Right? I went to Ulta and pondered over the colors. Ultimately I like my lip plumper clear so I can put whatever I want on top or just leave it alone. Since it doesn’t appear they make one clear I settled on one of the palest colors I could find and purchased ‘Angelic’ for $29 ($31.03 after tax). This was more money than I would usually spend on a lip plumper but I was taking a chance.
The product is also advertised to be the “first liquid lip color with extraordinary Amplifat technology to increase and maintain body fat just where you need it most”. This really is for me! Lord knows I am still carrying what I can no longer call a post baby bump 3 years later from having 3 kids in the span of 18 months. Body fat, I had that. Results were supposed to occur within 10 minutes.
Let me say I desperately wanted this product to work. Clean dry lips, check. Started to apply. The first thing that turned me off is the applicator looks like a tiny little paintbrush and the color spreads unevenly. I felt like I was painting it on. A minute or two later I barely felt a slight tingle on my lips. Not bad I thought. I’m not opposed to the tingle most lip plumpers give you but some people don’t like it. Then I waited.
And waited…and waited. Nothing. No plump.at.all. I spent a few days using this product and each time, still nothing. Is it kissable at least? Not according to my husband, he didn’t like the taste. I was very disappointed with LipFusion Infatuation Lip Fattener. Really it just seemed like a sticky not so easily applied gloss and nothing more. This is not only the most money I’ve ever spent on a plumper but the first one that gave me no results at all. Are you obsessed with plumper lips like I am? Which products have worked great for you?
