Huge lips, skinny hips and energy to burn.

Posted on September 1st, 2009 by Michelle

Red lips kissHere at LookinGood, we like to multitask. For example, washing our hair while mentally composing one of this week’s posts. Or having a mani/pedi and debating O.P.I. vs. Essie with the esthetician while mentally composing one of next week’s posts. Or actually typing one of those posts whilst wearing a soothing mask of seaweed extract.

Doing so many things simultaneously can wear you out. Not to mention that the calories we’re consuming while we do all that thinking and typing are not burning off as quickly as we’d like. That line about child-bearing hips only works if you are of child-bearing age. It’s almost distracting enough to make us forget our lips are looking a little thin.

A couple of products we recently found however, really have our curiosity piqued. Huge Lips, Skinny Hips Lip Gloss as well as Burner Balm’s Energy-X Lip Balm, claim to be the answer we’re looking for. The companies are completely unrelated, come from opposite coasts and have different target audiences. Huge Lips, Skinny Hips (hard to say, isn’t it?)  is a beauty product that says it will plump your lips and make you less hungry. Energy-X wants to be your no-calorie Red Bull or PowerBar alternative.

Wow, using them together could enhance our looks, moisten and plump our lips, suppress our appetites and give us the energy to make it through all 576 pages of the September issue of Vogue. Whew.

According to Dr. Allan Kurtz, Board Certified Internal Medicine and developing doctor behind Burner Balm, “Energy-X is applied directly on the lips and is therefore absorbed faster into the bloodstream and starts working immediately. A drink has to be swallowed, get into the stomach, and then absorbed, plus stomach acids and food at times may delay absorption.”

And really, who has time for delayed absorption these days? The lip balm, one of five offerings from Burner Balm, contains massive doses of caffeine, green tea extract and the appetite suppressant hoodia, a root extract from Africa, of its other products. The website says it can be applied under lipstick.

Better yet, follow it with one of the six shades of Huge Lips, Skinny Hips, which also contains hoodia, as well as lemon peel oil to provide that lip-plumping irritant.

Of course, the argument has been made that the amount of the hoodia you’ll absorb through your lips from the lip gloss is not significant enough to truly suppress your appetite. But hey, it probably won’t make you hungrier.  And if you combine it with the lip balm, you’ve more than doubled your intake. Plus all that extra energy will have you doing things that burn more calories right off those hips.

Like WALKING to the day spa for the anti-aging facial and mentally composing next week’s posts.

  • The bloggers at Beauty Brains “sort of” think it works.
  • My mama told me: “A moment on the lips, forever on the hips. Stylist tells us about the woman who turned the phrase into a product.

A short history of cosmetics

150BC Romans use yellow eye shadow.

The Romans preferred to use gold-colored eye shadow which was made from saffron and painted onto the area around the sides and under their eyes. Then they used powdered wood ash to color their eyelids black. This gold color was quite significant at the time because they saw themselves as the rulers of the Mediterranean.
