answer 3
The colour's a bit spotty at times and it has the potential of staining more than just lips if one's not careful. The colour is also very intense but fades quickly till just the inner rim of the lips are coloured.

I think it would be fine for a 12 year old for 'fun' but I wouldn't recommend having someone that young wearing a bright red lip stain. I would say if she's a Twilight fan there are better related things to gift her. This product borderlines on terrible even for the most skilled. I doubt she'd have much fun trying to get the colour to actually apply itself properly.

For a 12 year old, probably not, considering the color gets pretty intense. But for her to have it as a collectors item, or maybe even to have someone help her apply it, it should be just fine!

This lipstain packs a serious bite! In September, Duwop is releasing a whole line of Twilight/New Moon products that would probably be better suited for her if you're hesitant about this Lip Venom. There is no doubt in my mine that Sephora will pick this line up--BUT, if you're interested, you can always call their hotline and ask :)

Depends on whether it's for every day use or just for goofing around. If it's for every day, I'd say no. I don't think the color is appropriate for a twelve-year-old. Remember, this is a STAIN. It won't just wipe off. Also, it does have a bit of a sting to it. If you do end up buying it, just be aware that she might not like the way it feels.

I wouldn't get it for her, I don't think it's age appropriate. I think it's more for the older vampire lovers. If it was a lip gloss, that one thing. But when you get into lip stain and plumper thats another. Maybe wait to get this for her when like Breaking Dawn comes out? Just a suggestion

It REALLY depends how it looks on her & how YOU FEEL when you see it. This is DuWop's Lip Venom formula that has a stain added to it from what I see & I've just turned 29 so I've had the chance to use the Original, Silver & Gold shimmer (FLash), Moon & 2nd Sin. ALL of them (besides 2nd Sin) have ingredients (cinnamon oil, etc.) that basically swell up your lips with irritation & cause redness (that "bee-stung" look) & that is how they "plump" along with causing a noticeable feeling of tingling on up to burning, depending on the person (you eventually get used to it though.) I'm NOT trying to ruin anybody's day or bash Twilight because I consider getting this for myself because I'm interested in the stain aspect (but reviews of unevenness have held me back) but be aware that not only will it cause lips to appear red on their own with increased circulation but also now have a "ruby" stain on top of that. The only thing you can really do is maybe go to the store yourself (so your daughter doesn't get excited early & let down) & try it yourself or watch the many, many girls bound to be testing it! They say you can make the stain's look more potent so really the color is going to be so hard to predict each time since she could apply it darker without even really meaning to & also you must be careful to not apply outside of the lipline or that will cause irritation/redness where it's not wanted. I'm not sure if this has helped you at all but Sephora has a really great return policy so you can return anything even once used. Maybe to give yourself an idea of what Lip Venom's effects are try one yourself without the stain to see what it's all about, maybe you'll both get a new beauty gift! Good luck:)

It's not appropriate for a 12 year-old to wear this on a daily basis, especially since it's a lip plumper and not a lip balm/gloss.

I'll have to go with no unless you want a 12-year-old to have red, plumped-up lips. Plus lip plumpers can sting (which is the point).

It is neat because it is a Twilight product but the color is VERY red. People often think my lips are really chapped or bleeding. The stinging sensation may be a bit much for a younger girl. The color also goes on blotchy and because of this I can't wear it.

It is more of a stain though there is a slight shine to it. I always use a sunscreen under it & a lip balm in a similar color over it. If you apply them while the lip venom is wet-it will leave some color on the balm (if you use a nude or clear balm).

It is a combination of both. You can choose not to shake the bottle and dip it only in the clear part to get plump and shine, or dip on in the colour to get a bit of shine and an intense red stain. Or you can shake them and get a less intense red and nice shine.

You notice the tingly sensation, but honestly I didn't notice any plumping.
After you apply it and it has set, within a short time, it looks more like lip liner than lip stain. It has an oil base and that seems to help move it off the lips.

"Cruelty-free" does not mean "vegan". If the ingredients list carmine as a possible ingredient (as the above answer stated), then it is not vegan. Carmine is Red 4 which is made from crushed bugs. I couldn't find the ingredients list even on the DuWop website, but to be safe I would stay away from this if you are vegan.

Yeah they are! They have the Twilight Venom Blush which is a fairly new product. It's basically just like the Twilight Venom, but instead of being a red color, it's a shimmering pink. I'm not sure if it tingles the same way, but since it's a DuWop product, I wouldn't be surprised if it does.

I don't think DuWop is adding anything specific for Twilight under their brand because Twilight Beauty was launched with the assistance of the founder of DuWop so anything "Twilight" has been going under that branding (TwilightBeauty.com). The only items worth purchasing in that line are the Lip Glosses, Lipstick and mascara. I found everything else not worth the price.

to answer my own question about "shimmer" I personally DID see shimmer, it appeared red in color mixed with the stain or else it was just stained red by the stain. Perhaps the tester was messed up by someone accidentally introducing a shimmer into it with an unclean applicator but either way I applied this to my hand/wrist area & definitely saw shimmer in the product but it's not glitter so I'm positive it won't show on your lips.

Conditioning?
I've had my lips get really irritated by plumpers - I don't mean the burning when they're actually on (which I expect), but they can feel pretty raw afterwards and get chapped easily. Since winter is coming up, I'm wondering how well the conditioning agents actually work with this.
