I'm just a fat gal with a blog and an opinion. Well, lots of opinions.

Are You F-ing Kidding Me?


Had some downtime today (yeah, feeling post-y!) and checking up on some of my fave blogs and sites and came across this delightful (NOT) product:

Huge Lips Skinny Hips

“Huge Lips Skinny Hips, the yummiest lip plumper equipped with Hoodia, is for every woman who ever craved plump-looking lips that beg to be kissed.”

WTF?! NO! Hoodia, for those who may not have yet heard of it is a plant from (in this case) Namibia and is currently use all over the damned place as a weight loss drug due to it’s ability to make you feel fuller longer thus creating an opportunity for you to eat less…or so the story goes. EW! NO! In lip gloss? For fuck’s sake! It’s just so wrong. The name made me cringe, but then I saw it had hoodia and I realized that this is a very sick and twisted world we live in (I knew this, of course).

Look, one of the few damn things fat and skinny girls can bond over is fucking make-up! And now even this is anti-fat?!

I simply don’t have the words at the moment. What do YOU think?

    Agh, god. This is just insane, like the time I noticed my favourite online makeup store (before I discovered mineral makeup) was stocking Joey NY LipFIT gloss. Allegedly it ‘curbs your appetite’. Now that only contained a variety of mints – presumably it worked by making everything you ate taste a bit icky, like after you clean your teeth. Two things – first, since when does ‘fit’ mean ‘restricting what you eat’? (in reality, not in cloud-cuckoo-diet-land.) Second, that really won’t work if you are addicted to Polo mints (I am, kind of. Don’t ask about the time I ate too many sugar-free Polos.)

    Jeez-oh. Fashion makes me want to shave my hair in penitence for its unremitting stupidity at times.

    Oh wow! I seriously thought that this was a new and disgusting concept in the make-up world…now to find out it’s not a new idea? Shameful!
    Thank you for letting me know about the previous gloss. I am not sure what a Polo mint is, but perhaps it’s a regional thing.
    Yeah, I am sick and tired (ironically) of seeing restrictive eating being seen a “fit” or “healthy.” It’s all so much “bullshit!” Ha-ha!
    Thanks for commenting & reading. =0)

    Maybe you’re familiar with minty Lifesavers? They’re just opaque rings of mint-flavored candy. They brand themselves as “the mint with the hole,” as if this concept hadn’t been discovered thirty years earlier by numerous other companies.

    Speaking of which, one of my coworkers downs tons of them on days when she’s on a diet.

    See, I never did the whole crazy diets thing, so hearing this about your coworker does suprise me a bit. And they put all kinds of chemicals in mints…scary on all fronts!
    Thanks for reading/commenting.

    Ew. Ew ew ew ew ew.

    Assuming this worked, which I’m sure it doesn’t, wouldn’t it also slim down anyone with whom one did a significant amount of lip-locking??

    Ha-ha! I hadn’t thought of that. That’s awful!
