Wasabi as a Lip Plumper? Does it Work and How Long Does it Last? Should you Apply it Back to Back?

A few weeks ago I was pursuing Instagram (It's running a close race with Pinterest for being the loves of my life) and was on one of my favorite pages, Farah D (she's absolutely amazeballs for those that do not know) and I saw this video about using Wasabi as a lip plumper. Say what?!? 

🐝NATURAL LIP FILLERS - get SOFT, PLUMP, FULL, lips without needles or sucking on cups or objects 😳🙄As you may have noticed, I have VERY wrinkly lips and its cold AF in Toronto so now theyre super dry too. Wrinkly + Dry = worst combination ever!! SOOO.. THIS one trick is a great way to get plump lips that look like youve had fillers - theyll be extremely soft, wrinkles will be filled in, theyll have a natural pink color, and theyll be so plump ppl will think youve had them done🙃 all you need is: ✅WASABI! - $4 for a tube at the grocery store or you can keep the leftovers from sushi dates 🍣 😛take a tiny amount and rub it all over your lips ⏰leave on for NO MORE THAN 1 minute wipe off with a damp cloth or baby wipe 💦moisturize IMMEDIATELY! I used my @farsalicare Rose Gold Elixir ✨- you can use whatever you prefer to moisturize your lips, the key is to make sure to moisturize!  there you have ittttttt .. pillow soft lips! you can apply a lip color on top if youd like but i personally like how it looks with a plump natural pink color  the plumpiness lasts a whole day for me - but everyone is different so results will vary from person to person. The wasabi does sting but it's less than your traditional lip plumper and the effects last longer 😗 👯don't forget to share this video with a friend who wants a lil plump job and help a sis outtttt and like this video 👍🏾 Disclaimer: As with any skin care regimen, always do a test patch first to see if your skin is allergic to any of the ingredients.

Now, I'm one of those weird people who already has pretty nice and full lips, but I always say that they could be better, much like I feel like I could be taller although I'm 5'9". Anyhoo, so I'm watching this video in disbelief and immediately want to try it! It takes me a few stores to find the paste, but alas, on the third try, I succeeded. I must preference this by saying that I have never had Wasabi a day in my life and I've definitely never smelled it. As soon as I opened the tube, I was already questioning this decision. So, I smeared it on my lips and set the timer for one minute, as instructed in Farah D's video. 

The Before:

10 seconds in it's burning like crazy. Um....I want out of this right now! I'm panicking thinking that it's going to leave me with swollen, red and irritated lips that are going to be stuck this way for at least a day and there's no way to explain to people what happened without them looking at me crazy. 

Well, after the minute, I wipe this stinky, stingy mess away and immediately apply some shea butter to moisturize (after trying this out, I don't really know if a moisturizer is necessary). So, I do see some plumpness and the right and left side of my top lip appeared more symmetrical.  However, it's nowhere near as amazing as her results were in the video. I want amazing results!! Lol.

First Round Results:

So......I wait another 20 minutes or so and try it again (hangs head in shame. Always doing too much). Once again it's stinging like crazy and I'm already regretting this decision.  Set the timer again for a minute, wipe off and there's definitely a difference. I'm quite impressed, but not completely sold. In the video she states that the results last all day for her, but for me, I would give it an hour tops. 

Second Round Results:

The Next Day:

Drumroll to the following day. I decide to give it another try in the morning. This time I let it sit for 90 seconds. I slather it on and I don't feel any tingling, stinging, nada. I keep waiting and waiting and waiting. After the 90 seconds, I go to wipe it off and now it's stinging like crazy. I don't even know how to explain this because it makes no sense at all. I look in the mirror and it's just meh. I don't really notice much of a difference the same way I did the night before on the first try. I decide not to try it again and just chuck it up that it's not going to work for me as well as it worked for her and probably some others. I was a little disappointed, but also thankful that it wasn't really something that I needed in the first place. I would love to hear from other folks who have given it a try and had success...or not.
