Dina Manzo Has a Traumatizing Lip Gloss Disaster!

Oh, no, you guys! Dina Manzo had what sounds like a pretty bad experience this week all due to a tube of lip gloss, of all things. After swiping her kissers with the product, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star seems to have had a serious allergic reaction to the stuff that caused her pucker to swell up like a balloon. She even has a photo to prove it.

Dina went on Instagram to post a picture of the travesty.

"Used a new lip gloss & my lips have been swollen twice the size for 3 days now. It's not a cute look & they hurt! I swear this is what I look like," Dina wrote.

Well, at least she still has a sense of humor!

Some of her followers raised their eyebrows at her post, speculating that maybe Dina had some injections done and she's trying to cover it up with this story. But others believe her account, having had similar experiences with certain glosses themselves.

After a quick Google search, we found that swollen lips due to lip product use are pretty common. In fact, a lot of people seem to suffer from allergies to certain ingredients used in some glosses and balms.

We also saw some real photos of women suffering from the affliction and Dina is right — it's not a cute look at all.

We hope the effect wears off sooner rather than later, and urge Dina to stick with her usual lip regime — a simple dab of Carmex!

Do you think Dina's claims are legit or do you agree with others that she probably got lip injections? Sound off below!
