Lightening dark lip colour (beginning)

April 19, 2010 | 19 comments so far - join the discussion!

One of the main problems I had when I was in my “must have nude lips” phase, was having a “nude base”. I don’t have super pigmented lips but sometimes when I used sheer pink lipglosses, they just looked like clear gloss.. making my lips look oily and dirty.

After ignoring this problem for so long, I decided to try out a product which has been on the market for a while and it’s a nipple cream. Say what? So yes, a nipple cream for your lips will lighten your lip colour! :)

For a long time, women have been using nipple cream to lighten the colour due to aging. Like our nipples, our lips will also darken as we age and from sun damage - which is why its extremely important to use SPF on your lips, but we’ll discuss that some other time!

The product I’m talking about is the Bioglo Cherry Lips


This lip cream (okay, I’m referring to it as lip cream now because I don’t wana have to keep saying the word “nipple”) is amazing to use. The results are instant, yet opposite. You’ll see what I mean.



We start off with our natural bare lips ofcourse, here is what mine looks like…



The lip cream comes out in a white colour when you first squeeze it out. Bioglo even provides you with a lip brush to apply it!



So to apply the lip cream…… i’m going to demonstrate cause it does get pretty complicated! *sarcasm



You know what’s crazy about the result??? It’s like a lip-tint! From where I put some product on my finger before, this is what it looked like after a minute of spreading it on my finger.




The colour even stained my white piece of paper!!!




I know what you’re thinking.. if it’s a lip lightener, then why does it turn your lip darker/pinker?? How does that work?? This is what I’m looking forward to finding out! I’ve used this product in the past and after about 2 weeks, I actually noticed my lips were significantly lighter! I didn’t take any before and after shots back then, but now, I’m going to, and I want to know if this lip/nipple cream is really a lightener, or a lip-tint!



Whether this product really works on lightening lips or not, I think it’s a perfect lip tint! It has the best staying power if you wanted slightly pinky/reddy lips without using a lipstick and you can drink and eat without the colour fading! It’s awesome – too bad I’m not a big fan of dark lips, otherwise I’d be using this as my lipstick every day!!


I will be making another “results” blog post on this, so don’t forget to come back to see it!

    I don’t see any difference, only that your lips got that glossy look :sad:
    It’s probably the lightening

  2. Sana says:

    i hope this really works as I have discolouration on my lips and i HATE it =(
    cant wait to see the results =)

  3. ladyish says:

    I heard about this before and always wondered if it really worked. Where’d you get it from ?

  4. Jiawen says:

    Can’t wait to see the results~!
    I hate how my lips aren’t light pink! Like you said, most light lipgloss/lipstick don’t show up so it really sucks =\
    Wondering why it tints though o_o.. does it feel tingly or anything while on?

  5. Shmoo says:

    This is so logical! I can’t believe I never thought of this before.
    When you think of it, the lips and the skin around the nipples are somewhat similar since they are both very delicate (tho nipples don’t get chapped…

    Interesting! Can’t wait for the update. ;-)

    I’m happy with the colour of my lips..but this is an intriguing concept anyways. And I like the look of the gloss, actually :) I like a colour lipstick that’s not too light and not too can be hard to find the right shades.

    I’m using it last time but then I’m too lazy to apply it after few months T_T

    When you say you got it local… what store? (in AU right?)

    Hey, a new reader of your blog… love it!!

    This isnt a lightener, it’s just to give your lips/nipples are cuter pink colour. Hence the name ”cherry pink” So it would appear to be lighter, but it’s just a more pink tint, as opposed to plum coloured. ^___^

    hi, I used this product for more than a year and it didn’t work. i applied it 2 or more times a day. it just has a pink dye in it. it’s good as a light lip stick and the texture is good.
    the lightening ingredient is vitamin c which isn’t that helpful in lighening.

  12. […] #4: Nipple Cream or Aloe Vera gel – Nipple cream sounded really wrong and I don’t know where to get one, so […]

    My friend actually gave this to me, because she knew i had a love for lip products,and I had no idea It kind of stained your lips… THANK YOU JOANNA! BTW, I’m eleven, is that too young to start being really interested in makeup?

  14. pooja says:

    where can i purchase this?im from India?

  15. OhYeah says:

    1. You had beautiful lip color to begin with.

    2. It’s staining your lips, not lightening them.

    3. Nice color though :-)
