Lip Explosion

Lip Explosion, originally uploaded by malyousif.

I took a visiting friend around to Seef Mall for some “authentic Bahraini cuisine” in the shape of the excellent Yum Yum Tree grill and we both enjoyed the feast!

Anyway, after stuffing ourselves, we walked about the centre a bit and he wanted to buy his wife something nice. We stopped at a perfume shop and what I saw at the checkout desk was amazing. I couldn’t believe what some people would do to themselves “just to look beautiful”. I asked the shop assistant about this product and she told me that this is a rather high moving item!

Doesn’t anybody bother to read the ingredients? When they say “explosion” they’re NOT kidding! I am sure a kid would be able to make such a powerful bomb out of this muck, so how can “thinking” people actually put this on a sensitive part of their body is beyond me.

I wonder if these products ever make it to the Ministry of Health before being made available for general sale.

Anyway, I hope whoever does put this muck on their lips waits a few days before lighting a cigarette, then I have no doubt that their whole face will explode!

    I’ve found that pressing your lips to a hot iron produces the same results, and cheaper too! :mrgreen:

    this reminds me of a friend of mine who did something to her lips and ended up looking like a Hamoor (what I said to her was u look like Hamoor mzakim!!), the sad part is that she USED to have a very pretty face, according to many these things don’t last but I haven’t seen my Hamoor friend ever since.

    who knows how many school girls are using that stuff on their faces, and god knows where else.

    the funny thing is the comment;

    you may experience a warm tingling sensation and/or the appearance of smooth redness on the surface of the lips.. this is “normal”

    umm, no its not.
