Makeup Monday |Quest for Plump Lips Part III

It has been a while since I purchased a lip plumping product I’ve been dying to use! I wanted to test the plumping ability on a one-time usage as well as the plumping effect over time. I tested this product on my lips every day for an entire week, to see what progress it makes, if any, on a long term basis. So today I am going to break down my thoughts and feelings on the Too Faced lip Injections Ultimate Lip Plumper. Does it work?

 

You tell me!

 

I think I am convinced! The progress I’ve seen in a week of applications is undeniable. While this product is great for a quick plump before an evening out, it also has lasting plumping over time. I’ve applied it before bed, on top of a lip balm, just to keep them moisturized. I definitely see the results I was after!

The product does have a slight tingling, almost burning sensation…which sounds awful but it is definitely manageable, and the little discomfort subsides within 10 minutes! The formula is pretty sticky, so I recommend blotting it prior to a lipstick application, if you’ve applied it on a night out.

Ultimately, I really do enjoy this product. I see the results I want, both immediately and over time. The product retails at $29.00 CDN and is available at Sephora! They do have a newer product called the Lip Injection Extreme, and that is $39.00. I haven’t tried it, so I cannot say for certain that it does more than the original Lip Injection does, but if it works as good as the original, it is probably worth the money too.

Makeup Monday | Quest For Plump Lips part II

The quest continues! While I absolutely loved the results from my first attempt (Part I), I’m ready to try a second technique to achieve pouty plump lips. Today I’m working with a DIY lip scrub, and the things you’ll need are:

  • A small dish
  • cinnamon powder
  • old tooth brush (with firm bristles)
  • a spatula or mixing tool
  • your favourite lip balm

Let’s get started!

  1. In a small dish, pour a teaspoon (or a heap…if you are like me and don’t measure anything) of cinnamon.
  2. Choose your favourite lip balm. I’m choosing Nivea Essential lip balm…of course!
  3. With a small spatula, or whatever mixing tool you have (fingers included), add some of your lip balm to the cinnamon and mix together until well combined, and resembling a brown paste.
  4. Take your old, firm bristled tooth brush, coat it in your paste, and begin applying it to your lips! Be very gentle during this process, and scrub in a circular motion for several minutes. You should begin to feel a tingly sensation. It should not burn or hurt, but it may feel a little spicy on your lips.
  5. With a paper towel, wipe away your scrub to reveal plumper lips!

The paste, or scrub, you created in conjunction with the toothbrush bristles exfoliating the lips will promote blood flow and slightly swell your lips, making them plumper and fuller. I am actually really happy with my results, and this method should have the plumping affect on your lips for a good 2 to 3 hours!

What do you think? Do my lips look fuller and plump? Comment down below and let me know!
