A few years ago — like maybe about a decade — peel lip stains were the big thing.
Then they disappeared.
But, everything comes back around, my friends. The peel lip stain is back, and it is taking TikTok by storm.
You might be wondering, “Does this stuff really work?”
Well, to find out, all we have to do is take to the social media giant for all the lip stain answers.
Here’s basically how these stains work. You slather on a goopy mess of the purple metallic lip mask. You let it dry, then spray it with a magic concoction that promises perfection, and then peel that bad boy off. What you’re left with are pink supple lips, plum ripe for that pouty selfie that Instagram made so popular.
BONUS – it is supposed to be transfer proof — so you can get all those kisses in, and not stain up your SO’s face!
But, just wait a second before you hop onto Amazon and buy the Wonderskin Wonder Blading Peel & Reveal Lip Color Kit — which is the lip stain in question.
Is it all it’s cracked up to be?
Some TikTok users would have you think this Wonderskin Wonder Blading Peel & Reveal Lip Color Kit is totally the bomb.
@MakeupByTammi does a cool video showing the wonders of the peel off lip mask. It looks hella cool as she applies, sprays, and peels to reveal hot pink lips.
Then, VOILA, she does the kiss test, and NOTHING!! It appears to work!!
It appears, however, that all users are not getting those excellent results with this seemingly magic product.
A quick trip over to Yahoo’s In The Know shows you a slightly different result with this lip stain.
Lisa Azcona steps up to the plate, and first cleans her lips with a lip scrub to take off any excess loose skin.
Then she applies the purple mask to her lips, and sprays it with the magic concoction that makes it peelable.
Once it dries, she tries to peel the messy mask off, but can’t quite get it.
She even goes into the corners of her mouth with a washcloth, but still has trouble getting the mask to release from her lips.
FINALLY she is able to get the lip mask off, but the results are a bit spotty at best.
What does she think?
I absolutely love the color of the lip stain,” Lisa says. “But I’m not gonna lie, that felt like a lot more than I am willing to do when I am getting ready.Yahoo
She says her lips felt dry, and they burned a little — in fact, they felt kinda weirdly tingly during the entire experiment.
Oh, did the “kiss” test work for Lisa? Not so much.
So, should you go out and buy this Wonderskin Wonder Blading Peel & Reveal Lip Color Kit? I don’t know. Maybe?
It might be worth it just for the fun of trying it once. Who knows, it may work for you, and you may love it!!
The Wonderskin Wonder Blading Peel & Reveal Lip Color Kit sells for 32 bucks on the Amazon website.
It might make a fun stocking stuffer for that makeupista on your Christmas list!
