Lip Bang's Lip Freak Buzzing Lip Balm in Berry Sinister
Weird. That's the only word I can use to describe Lip Bang's Lip Freak Buzzing Lip Balm.
I picked mine up from Ulta for $4.95, but I have seen them at a few other stores online. There are bubble gum, mint, and cherry flavors as well, but I went with the berry (Ulta doesn't carry the cherry one for some reason).
The packaging is admittedly what drew me in - I mean it has a skull and is all circus-freakshow themed, so of course I had to get this. Where does the buzzing come in, you ask? Well, that's where I say again, it's WEIRD.
The balm goes on clear, so it doesn't give off any color. I get no berry flavor or scent from this at all. Instead it's very strongly cinnamon, and a few seconds after you put it on, your lips start to tingle. Then it gets really intense, like MORE than a tingle. It feels odd, like your lips have little electric currents running through them. It doesn't get painful, there's just a very strong tingling sensation happening. I find that when I put a thick layer on, this lasts for about 20 minutes before my lips are just numb and almost feel like I just had Novocaine for a filling in my tooth or something.
Very weird, very different, and for around $5 it's worth trying. Give your significant other a kiss and see what they think when their lips start tingling!
