Lip Lightening Treatments – Why?!





Is there anything left that can’t be lightened?

Not according to Beauty DIY…

Girl, I hope they paid you well

Personally speaking, I have quite pigmented lips that are quite pink. I have lip concealer type products if I want a really neutral base but these days I kind of work with it – so I can use a sheer gloss and still look like rosy.

But a treatment that makes my lips look lighter? I don’t know. I just don’t think pigmented lips are a problem really. Nor is a dark anus. Unless you work in porn, or something, who is really looking that close in that area?….maybe I shouldn’t ask.

Lip Lightening Mask – yay or nay?

    As a person who doesn’t smoke but is routinely asked if she does smoke an illegal drug because of the darkness of her lips, i can see the market for it.

    Also i have seen nipple lightening cream for sale as well, marketed to the middle east.

    I wouldn’t mind lighter lips, but I’ve never thought about actually *doing* something about it, you know? It’s just not the norm. You buy a lip concealing product or put up with it.

    I’ve also seen the nipple lightening cream. It made me lol at first but then I actually thought there must a be a market if it’s produced! So strange.

    WTH??? My lips are so pale, they’re almost lighter than my skin (and I’m pale to begin with). Without lipstick on it looks like I don’t *have* any lips. Do you know what I’d do to have the least bit of pigment on my lips, so I don’t look sick/dead/tired without a little lippie? Count your blessings, girls…

    Snaggletooth has the right idea: let’s all bleach our lips!

    Actually, my upper and lower lips are two different colors (brown, and pink, to be exact) so I could see the appeal of such a product. Also, the pigment on both of my lips is darker around the edges, as if I’d used a dark brown lip-liner; I wouldn’t mind something to even them out.

    Sweet, Lucy: Please tell me more about this ‘nipple lightening cream’. :-O

    Not sure why my previous comment was posted under ‘Anonymous’. I thought I was logged into my WordPress account when I posted it… You wouldn’t mind correcting it for me, would you Rows?

    I can see the point, since I have seen people whose lips are brownish/blackish tinge at the edges…But for pigmented lip, I think it has more thing to do with thin epidermis (I have fairly red lips myself and I actually see my capillaries with the aid of a really glassy lip gloss) so nothing is really going to help.

    lol, if it works, i would buy it!

    I’m trying the Kose chapstick with coix seed extract (available on and I *THINK* it is working. Can’t be sure yet though, its only been a few months…
