DuWop Moon Venom Review

A few weeks ago I had told you about DuWop's newest gloss entitled Moon Venom. Click for details.

The thing with Lip Venom is you either really love and appreciate it or you loath it. It's really that simple. I fall into the love group. Some people find that the sting is a bit too much to handle and that's especially the case if you're sensitive. I'm not sensitive at all and I find the bite from Lip Venom quite nice.

I have all the Lip Venoms they have released up until now and when Moon Venom popped up that too got quickly added to my collection. Each release is different from the last in sparkle. That's about the only difference in the glosses. They all taste the same, they all give the same clear glossy look, they all work the same to plump your lips up however each has a sheer sparkle to them that's quite different. Flash Venom comes in versions of gold and silver sparkle while Pink Shimmer Venom, you guessed it, comes in a pink shimmering version.

Moon Venom falls somewhat into the Flash Venom category as it's a similar silver however it's a bit more of an intense sparkle to it so it looks almost iridescent when applied instead of just straight silver sparkle. All in all it's quite lovely.

It does it's normal duty of making my lips look just bitten plus I get the added bonus of such a beautiful sparkle. At $17USD for such a small tube it's a bit costly however I find these last literally for ages on end so it's quite inexpensive for getting so little product that lasts for so long. I use my regular Lip Venom for one to two touch-ups daily and it's about a year old!

Moon Venom is mostly definately a Muse Approved item! But be warned it packs a mighty bite!

Eh, I like the original Lip Venom and really love the results (plump, pink, Freudian-ly suggestive lips) but found I had to apply and reapply every 5 minutes to maintain the effect. I also didn't find that it lasted me very long, I went through half the tube in around 2 weeks. I wish they made a longer lasting version. Moon Venom does look very pretty though.

I got your last e-mail and replied to it (yesterday; well, technically two days ago since it's actually Sat. morning) but am not sure it went through; when I checked my 'sent' folder today, it wasn't there. LMK if it reach you (argh! First Blogger now Hotmail! Et tu, Yahoo mail?!?).

Hey Mandy!

I do too. It lasts on me about 4 hours and after it's gone I find that my lips remain a rather delightful rose color from the sting! Which is nice as I don't have to keep reapplying stain, gloss, or lipstick!

I haven't tried that new giant size lip venom! Wonder if that has better last?

I didn't get a reply? Can you resend?

your broke the internetz!

muse-y I have a question about which lip venom product i should try first. I'm liking the sound of prime venom and my main concern is buying a plumper that wont rub off on my boyfriend and cause HIS lips to burn. He may be more sensitive than me...and i'm not sure if he wants very plump red lips. is prime venom a better choice than the original?

hey claire!

sprru for the delayed reply.

mmmm I ahven't tried primer venom but most of the venom product do have a little sting....! Prime Venom prob has less sting but it could prove irritating during kissing :-D

I'd probably skip it altogether in intimate situations.

I love all the venom glosses but some people do complain they are feel a burning/stinging sensation so be careful!

Hope this helps hun

thanks, this sure does help :) I've heard about this imfamous stinging. I bought the Lip Venom V (still waiting for it to arrive!), like you i'm a fan of both twilight and true blood :) i'm also a huge fan of this site!!! such a gem! but anyways i'll take your advice and just wear the venom on days when i dont see the boyfriend. I think i'll try my twilight venom first and see how that works before i decide on getting the clear gloss or not.

I GOT MINE!!! :D I love the color, its really nice...i just used it once since I just got it today but i'm going to be really happy when i apply my makeup tomorrow. The sting was a little unexpected! It burned more than I thought it would...but i'm cool with it lol. I must warn you that the color beads up on your lips and so make sure you rub your lips together thoroughly! you'll love it :)
