This post is a review about the Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme.
In the last few years, there has been a rise in demand for lip fillers and it keeps on rising, patients as young as 18 are already getting them done.
Dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance that the body absorbs, that's injected into certain areas of the face to add volume.
Although, dermal fillers have been labeled as safe it does have side effects such as skin rash, itching, redness, bruising, bleeding, swelling and pimple-like eruptions.
Besides, not everyone has the money to afford them either, depending on the doctor who performs the procedure, the type of fillers they use and the area you live in lip injections can cost around $500 to $2,000.
From a very young age, I was in pursuit of the perfect pout but didn't want to have lip fillers; so I had to find an alternative.
I came across the Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme which has been in the market for a long time and with reason; so I HAD to try it out, even if it was too good to be true.

My Experience With The Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme
The Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme is the #1 Lip Gloss in America, so I was very excited to try it out.
This lip gloss hydrates, nourishes and conditions the lips while increases collagen and moisture to plump the lips so they appear full and pouty.
After applying the lip gloss onto my lips, I could feel a tingling sensation.
A few seconds later, I could feel and see my lips getting fuller, as someone with very small lips even the slightest difference is a big deal.
I loved the fact that it plumpled my lips and made them look rosy, however, the lip gloss has a tingling sensation that could be uncomfortable; personally, I have a high pain tolerance so I didn't mind it.
For obvious reasons, the results you would get from lip injections can’t be compared with wearing this lip gloss but it's a good alternative if you're not looking to undergo a cosmetic procedure like lip injections.
The Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme Lip Plumper has a very strong tingling sensation, felt within the first few minutes of application, that might be uncomfortable and maybe even unbearable to some.
Also, if this lip gloss isn't applied only on the perimeter of the lips, temporary redness may occur on the skin.
