Do Not Gloss This Over: A Closer Look At Huge Lips Skinny Hips

I've already given you all an intro to the Huge Lips Skinny Hips lip gloss, the first product (hopefully in a long list of many!) created by Karen Robinovitz, the mastermind behind the PurpleLab brand. In this post, I'm going to give you a more in depth review of the product, including lots of yummy swatches.

First off, I LOVE the way this gloss feels on my lips! The formula is so moisturizing and the color applies effortlessly. Each gloss includes a doe-foot applicator, one of the softest I have ever encountered. It's interesting, but you almost don't feel the gloss going onto your lips. The end result, though, are some amazingly juicy, bee-stung, "huge" lips, the smell/taste of which are intoxicatingly fruity! I can't really comment on the appetite-suppressing aspect of the gloss....for those of you who know me well, you can vouch for the fact that there truly is not much that can curb my appetite!! When I'm wearing this gloss, however, I can't stop licking my lips (so that helps me a bit!)

There are currently six shades available: No Panty Lines (clear), Kitty Pole Dancer (nude), Love Your Thighs (coral-pink with subtle gold shimmer), Red Sole (red with subtle shimmer), Lychee Martini (peach), and Worship Kate (berry). I said it once, and I'll say it again....these names are too cute!! All of the glosses contribute sheer, yet buildable (and delicious!) color.

The two colors that I have in my collection (so far!) are Love Your Thighs and Red Sole. Both have become staples in my summer make-up bag. The colors are so versatile (even the red is sooo subtle and wearable!!)

**The only gloss not swatched is No Panty Lines, as the clear wouldn't show up well in photos

The other amazing thing about the Huge Lips Skinny Hips lip glosses is that they seem to have nice staying power. I was able to eat and drink, and the lip gloss stayed pretty well on my lips! Even when the gloss wears down, you're left with a gorgeous stain!

Please check out the line of Huge Lips Skinny Hips glosses! They will give you sexy, plump lips without the overpowering sensation many plumpers provide. As mentioned previously, they retail for $20. You can go to for more info on where to buy them.....they're constantly popping up at new locations! I found mine at the SpaceNK inside of my local Bloomingdale's. I'm pretty sure Lychee Martini and Kitty Pole Dancer will be coming home with me soon ;-).


  1. I love the smell of these glosses and scents. How do you get through gloss so quickly? It takes me forever ;D

  2. Ms, these glosses do smell delicious! I'm really enjoying them. It takes me a long time to get through lip gloss, too! I probably have more than I need to last me several lifetimes! But, what girl doesn't love gloss? ;-)
