Review: INSTAsmile – Upper Clip In Veneers In Shade BL1 – BEFORE & AFTER

Hey dolls… my long awaited clip in veneer review is finally here!!! I have always been self-conscious about my teeth and every time I smiled I would always cover my mouth to hide my smile. I have a huge gap in my front teeth and I have some overcrowding on the right side which I hate. I had always dreamed of having a perfect Hollywood smile and I even considered getting a brace or traditional veneers to fix my teeth and make them look better! But, they are both so expensive and way out of my budget costing thousands. A few months back, I seen a few photo’s of beauty bloggers wearing clip-in veneers on Instagram and I was very impressed with the before and after photo’s so I had a look on google and found INSTAsmile who specialize in custom-made, pain-free clip in veneers at an affordable price. I ordered straight away and it’s been a few months since I got them but I thought I would give them a good trial before I posted a review on them. So here we are 3 months later!

INSTASMILE CLIP IN VENEERS 1

INSTAsmile clip-in veneers are made from safe, bio-compatible dental grade materials, perfect for cosmetic dental products which are BPA and Monomer free. INSTAsmile ship worldwide and give you the option to pay in full or spread the cost with interest free instalments. The first step is to complete the smile assessment online to check your suitability, you can then create your smile from a range of options, looks and shades. After placing your online order you will be sent a self impression kit with full easy-to-follow instructions to provide an impression of your natural teeth and gumline. Once you have sent your impression back, it will be checked to see if it meets the quality standard to be sure that you receive the best fitting veneers as possible. INSTasmile then digitally scan your impression and use it to create your bespoke, custom-made clip on veneers. The whole process takes about 3-4 weeks roughly.


STEP ONE –  GETTING STARTED 

After browsing through the website and reading some reviews, I went ahead and chose the CLASSIC clip-in veneers which are for occasional wear and cheaper than the  PLATINUM clip-in veneers which are for everyday wear.

The CLASSIC option cost from £249 and includes a safe, custom-made, stain resistant veneers which have a natural, slimline appearance with different shades to choose from. You can also Eat & Drink with them in.

The PLATINUM option are riced from £499 have the same features as the CLASSIC and also includes enhanced Durability, Express Service, Extended Warranty, Smile consultant, Enhanced Aesthetics, Innovative Technology, Impression Appointment, Precision Engineering.


STEP TWO – SMILE ASSESSMENT

 I took the smile assessment HERE. It’s basically just a few questions to work out if clip-in veneers are suitable for you. You will be asked if you are having  any dental treatment, or if you have any oral health issues such as gum disease, bleeding, soreness or loose teeth. You will also be asked if you have 4 or more missing upper or lower teeth in a row. as you will need at least one tooth either side of your mouth to clip the veneers in.

CHOOSE YOUR GOALS

After you have answered a few questions you will be asked what your smile goals are such as straighter looking teeth, to cover missing teeth, natural gaps or chipped teeth and to whiten teeth or hide overcrowding. I wanted straighter, whiter looking teeth, to cover natural gaps and hide overcrowding.

SELECT YOUR ARCH TYPE

I chose the CLASSIC upper arch which is priced from £249

Classic

Top – £249
Bottom – £249
Top & Bottom – £379

Platinum

Top – £499
Bottom – £499
Top & Bottom – £749

CHOOSE A VENEER SHADE

There are four shades to choose from. I chose the whitest shade BL1 for my upper arch as I wanted a super white smile but they are a lot whiter than my natural bottom teeth so I do wish I would have chosen shade A1. I suppose I could get my bottom teeth whitened so they are the same colour as the veneers but it’s not really noticeable as when I smile I only show my top teeth, my bottom teeth are not visible. Maybe I’ll get some BL1 clip-ins for my bottom too so they match! We’ll see hey.  So, yeah, keep this in mind if your only getting a top arch or a bottom arch as you want them to look close in shades to your own teeth as possible so they don’t look obviously fake and mismatched, especially if you can see all of your teeth when you smile/talk.

veneer-shade-guide

The shades available are below:

BL1 is the whitest shade available and gives the appearance of artificial, whitest white, dazzling teeth.

A1 is the most natural white that a tooth can be and radiates a slight whitened look.

A2 is a light ivory colour giving a natural look prior to undergoing any whitening.

A3 is a medium ivory colour slightly darker than A2 maintaining a natural tone


STEP TWO – IMPRESSION KIT

 

 

About two weeks after ordering my upper self impression / mould kit arrived in a small box and included was an instruction leaflet, two blue upper mouth trays, three yellow putty’s in small plastic tubs and three white putty’s in small plastic tubs as well as a sealable plastic bag to put your finished mould into when sending it back. The instructions show you how to create the putty and how to take a good impression of your teeth – I found watching this video tutorial helped.

I made sure to leave the kit for 12 hours at room temperature. For the upper set you need to mix and knead one yellow and one white putty together for 30 seconds to activate the putty. Roll the putty into an egg shape and place onto the front of the mouth tray by the handle. This step needs to be done quickly. Put the tray into your mouth and push from the bottom upwards, also press gently along your gumline and wait 3 minutes before removing. First time I tried it I was too slow and the putty became hard but I had two more tries and finally got a good impression.

Once I had taken an impression of my upper teeth I emailed a photograph of my impression to INSTAsmile for approval and was happy when they said it was a good impression and I could send it back to them. I put my impression in the plastic bag and back into the box it came in with the free delivery label that is included with the mould kit and sent it back to INSTAsmile so they could make my custom-made clip in veneers to fit my teeth.


STEP THREE – DELIVERY

I think it was about 3-4 weeks after sending off my impression kit when I received a dispatch email from INSTAsmile telling my veneers were on the way. I was so excited and didn’t expect them to be delivered the next day after I received the email. They came in a small box and inside was a free luxury mirror case which had my lovely, gorgeous, white veneers in.

 

 

 

 


THOUGHTS

I’m absolutely over the moon that I came across INSTAsmile and thought I’d be stuck with an ugly smile forever as I couldn’t afford real veneers and braces were too expensive. I wanted straighter, whiter looking teeth and to cover my natural gaps and hide overcrowding and my clip-in veneers have done just that, my appearance has been improved – I feel so much more attractive than I did and my self-confidence has been boosted so much. I no longer hide my teeth when I smile so I’m really happy about that.

 I really love how white they are – I choose the whitest shade ‘BL1’ for my upper set but like I mentioned above they are a shade or two whiter than my natural bottom teeth which are a natural shade of white, more like A1 or A2 so although I wanted the whitest ones I do wish that I would have chosen A1 instead. I am going to whiten my bottom teeth just so they are the same colour as the veneers. The gap I had in my front has completley gone too and I absolutely love how straighter my teeth look. I have been looking in the mirror constantly as I can’t believe I have a gorgeous white, straight smile with no gaps and no overcrowding and I can actually smile in my selfies now instead of duck face pouting, haha.

FLASH ON CAMERA

 

 

NO FLASH

 

 

The clip-in veneers are so easy to put in and take out and they feel tight, snug and safe on my teeth – they don’t move and there is no chance of them falling out. You just simply place them over your natural teeth, pushing up to click them in securely. They also blend into my gumline perfectly and it looks very natural. For the first few days of wearing them, I was talking with a lisp but it soon disappeared and I was taking normal again. I wear mine everyday and they are comfortable to wear although I will admit after a few hours I can’t wait to take them out. Obviously it does feel like you have something in your mouth when wearing them but over time you get used to it. INSTAsmile say you can eat and drink with them in but I did find it a little uncomfortable eating with them in so I do prefer to take them out when I’m eating but I do leave them in when drinking. They have proved to be stain resistant too and I have drank tea, coffee, red wine and coke whilst wearing them and they haven’t stained at all and they are still in tip-top condition after two months of wearing them near enough everyday.

INSTASMILE CLIP IN VENEERS

Not only have INSTAsmile made me feel more confident but they have me the incentive to quit smoking too and it’s been two weeks since I had a ciggie. I have loved having straight, white teeth so much that the money I save from quitting smoking is being saved up so I can eventually get a brace and professional whitening. So thank you InstaSmile!

Review & Swatches: NYX – Turnt Up Lipsticks – Priviliged, Beam, Twisted & Burlesque

You dolls will already know that I have a keen eye for a bargain so I jumped at the chance when I seen these Turnt Up Lipsticks from NYX in my local B&M Store. I got the shades Priviliged, Beam and Twisted in a 3-piece set for about £3.99 and the Burlesque one was £2 odd. They had lots of other shades to choose from too but I chose the shades that I thought would suit my skin tone.

NYX TURNT UP LIPSTICKSNYX TURNT UP LIPSTICKS 2

 

ABOUT: ”Speak volumes with a bold swipe of Turnt Up! Lipstick. Go as soft or get as loud as you like using our wide range of 22 statement-making shades. From chic nudes to deep vampy hues, these lightweight and creamy lippies glide on effortlessly. Leaving lips with a kiss of shine and high-impact color you can count on for an unforgettable look.” – NYX

NYX TURNT UP LIPSTICK SWATCHES XNYX TURNT UP LIPSTICK SWATCH

BURLESQUE #20

Burlesque is a deep wine, burgundy, berry shade and I actually like it . It’s not something I would wear of a day but it would look great for a night out or whenever you are getting dolled up and want to look vampy. It is a staple autumn/winter shade and is a dark, red purple-ish colour that is so pigmented and one swipe gives high impact colour. I did find it stained the lips though and it transferred so bad – it was everywhere but a blot with a tissue sorted it out and stopped it from transferring as much.

TWISTED #08

This shade really surprised me, I did initially think this bright violet-purple colour would look awful on my lips but I actually like it and it is probably my favourite shade out of the four I picked up – I’ve worn this shade a couple of times already and it is a little bright for day wear but I wear it anyway and it would definitely look amazing on a girls night out. . I LOVE it, it’s so wearable, looks pretty and it’s so pigmented and gorgeous. If mermaids wore lipsticks this Twisted shade would be it.

PRIVILEGED #03 

Privileged is a gorgeous hot pink shade which is super girly, bright and fun. A perfect colour for spring and summer. I rarely wear bright pink lipsticks as I prefer my reds but this is a colour I will definitely wear on a night out. Like burlesque this does transfer a lot and it does stain the skin a little.

BEAM #07

Beam is a neon, fluorescent,bright pinky-coral shade and it has a slight shimmer too. It is so pretty. I wear this of a day and I do really like it. It doesn’t look as shiny as the other three shades and it looks a little chalky but I do like it and it’s my second fave out of the four that I picked up. It’s so pretty and will look amazing in spring and summer against tanned skin. My pics below really don’t do this colour justice – it is so much brighter in the flesh.

Thoughts:

I do like these Turnt Up Lipsticks and I love that there are 22 shades to choose from. The packaging of the lipsticks is okay I guess – they are small little black tubes with white writing on and they have clear plastic lids so you can see the lipstick – the lids do fall of easily though so be careful if placing in your make-up bag, pockets or handbag as they will stain fabric. The lipsticks have a slightly slanted tip making them easy to apply and they have a super creamy formula which applies smoothly and doesn’t feel drying on the lips – it actually feels like you are wearing a lip balm or chapstick and they have a lovely, mild, sweet scent sweet too. They leave a gorgeous shine on the lips and the colour is so intense and pigmented to say they are quite cheap to buy. These do transfer a lot so I do blot with tissue when wearing which prevents them from spreading onto the skin as much, but they really do get everywhere –  I smoke so when I have a cigarette the lipstick transfers all over my fingers and they stain the skin too especially the burlesque shade so keep this in mind before buying. Blotting does help a little. I do like these lipsticks though and I will definitely buy them again – I have my eye on shades Flutter Kiss, Rockstar and Hollywood for next time.

DisclosureI bought these with my own money.

Where To BuyI got mine from B&M – you can also get them on the NYX website here for £6.50.

Review: Expressions Fashion Nails | 3D Limited Edition Pearl Studded False Nails From B&M (Only £1.49!) @bmstores #nails

I popped into my local B&M Store a few days ago and I went absolutely mental buying loads of beauty bargains and gorgeous home accessories. I did pick a basket up when I first went in but I had to nip back outside and get myself a trolley because my basket was overflowing ha ha. That shop is addictive I swear – I just can’t help myself when I’m in there and everything I see – I want!

One of the items that caught my eye was these Limited Edition 3D Expressions Fashion Nails which are made from ABS Plastic and are a gorgeous nude colour with pretty pearls on – they have a lovely almond shape too and are really long.

B&M NAILS XXB&M NAILS XXX

There are 24 nails included in the box and they are really gorgeous – I couldn’t believe they were only £1.49. Absolute bargain! It says on the box that these nails are suitable to wear for 3 days or just for a girls night out but I’m hoping they stay on for  much longer as they really are beautiful. I thought I’d let you beauties know all about them as I’m sure you love a bargain as much as I do – especially when it’s a pretty bargain!

B&M NAILS X

The nails also come with a nail glue which is actually ok quality to be honest – in the past when I have bought cheap nails I always ditch the included glue and use a more expensive one but this glue has surprised me… I was expecting it to be completely useless and I didn’t think it would bond well at all but it’s actually done the job and so far after 2 days of applying the nails – they are still stuck on pretty well – if you are heavy handed then I would advise using a stronger glue as well as carrying it around in your handbag just in case one falls off throughout the day – nothing worse than a missing nail! The only bad thing I have to say about the nails is that the pearls easily fall off – one of the pearls on my index finger fell off while I was washing the dishes so I will be making sure I wear my rubbers to prevent any more from falling off. You can’t really tell that I’m missing a pearl and they do still look nice.

I’ve had a few lovely compliments about them already and I do think they look more expensive than what they were! I really, really love them!

Review: Batiste – OOMPH My Locks XXL Volume Spray

My hair is quite flat, boring and limp and sometimes I need a little help to make my hairstyle look fuller, volumised, thicker and ‘Cheryl-Cole like’. I’ve had my Oomph My Locks XXL Volume Spray from Batiste lying around for ages and because I have so many beauty products stored away in storage boxes, like literally millions of stuff – I forgot all about it. I was having a clear out a few weeks ago and found the volume spray amongst all of my stuff. I’ve used it a couple of times since but it’s not an everyday thing as I only tend to use when I’m wearing my hair down or if I’m going on a girls night out. Most days I wear my hair in dutch-braids, a pony-tail or a bun-ring.

14516423_10210415174600015_2306299661220822747_n

The Oomph My Locks Volume Spray is enriched with keratin which adds shine, prevents split ends and adds protein to the hair to keep it healthy which is great as I suffer from split ends and dry, fizzy damaged hair. It also contains inca inchi oil too which helps to hydrate the hair, lock in moisture, protect from sun damage as well as regulating oil production of the scalp.

It’s easy to use, just simply spray at the roots and backcomb a little using your fingers or a tail comb to add volume at the roots, then style your hair as desired. After spraying the volume spray, it does leave a white, chalky layer on the hair but it is easily removed by combing it out. It really does make your hair look more volumised and thicker – it has definitely gave my limp, flat hair a little oomph and lift at the roots and it holds hairstyles well! It also has a lovely, fresh scent that stays on the hair and doesn’t disappear after five minutes of applying. I did find that it made my hair feel dry-ish with a rough texture and the movement of my hair was not as’ flowy’ as it was before I used it so I don’t think you can get away with applying it everyday without washing the hair after each use – it contains keratin which can cause product build up.

I love dry shampoo’s and always rely on them when I’m in a rush, especially when my hair needs washing but I’ve literally no time to wash, dry and style – which usually takes ages, but I wouldn’t use Batiste’s OOMPH My Locks XXL Volume Spray as a replacement for a dry shampoo spray as it works best as a volume booster – but, it does help a little by soaking up excess oil at the roots and makes the hair smell clean, fresh and just-washed.

Some of my regular readers will know that I have fragrance sensitivities, which basically means that I can be allergic to certain smells and artificial fragrances which cause me to have violent headaches and migraines. It can be so bad sometimes and I can only use a handful of perfumes and deodorant sprays because of it. Don’t get me wrong I’m not allergic to everything… just some. Well, this spray from Batiste does cause me to have mild headaches but it soon passes and isn’t severe. So, if like me, you have fragrance sensitivities, bear this in mind before you decide to buy it.

Kat Von D – Everlasting Liquid Lipstick Outlaw

Hey gorgeous girls,

A few months back I managed to pick up Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in the super bright red shade called Outlaw which I got from Love Me Beauty, a fab monthly beauty subscription box which allocates 60 points each month. Unlike other sub boxes Love Me Beauty allows you to choose your own high end products. The everlasting liquid lipstick cost me 20 points so I still had 40 points to spend on other products. The monthly subscription  is  £10 + £2.95 p&p and you can also buy add on points. If you’d like to sign up to Love Me Beauty, use my promo code ‘KATY99737822’ to get £21 worth of LMB credits to spend on whatever you like. You also get a different make-up bag every month.

The packaging of the Everlasting Liquid Lipstick is very pretty, I love the floral detailing on the lid. The lipstick itself is a gorgeous rich red colour with slight orange undertones and it is a good quality, highly pigmented, full coverage shade that seriously stays put.

c__data_users_defapps_appdata_internetexplorer_temp_saved-images_16999173_10211829283471853_6324890760539787112_n

It glides on the lips like a silky, creamy lipgloss and quickly dries to a matte finish. It is enriched with natural moisturisers including vitamin E and sunflower seed wax. Best thing is the lipstick is suitable for vegans and 100% cruelty free which is great. I love it.

Review: Miss Pouty – Hotlipz Lip Pumper

I’ve been using the HOTLIPZ LIP PUMP (suction cup) from Miss Pouty the last few days and I’m loving how pumped my lips are looking. I thought I would share a review with you all as I couldn’t find any blog posts or reviews of it anywhere on the internet so I thought I would be Little Miss Helpful for the day and share my two bob with you all.

51nafliZB4L__SX425_

This arrived the next day after I ordered it, so I was happy with fast delivery! It came in a pretty presentable gift box and inside was the red suction cup which was shaped like a big pair of lush lips, a lovely red velvet drawstring bag to store it in when not using and some handy instructions too.

I was sent this to review few days ago from Miss Pouty and I was really excited to receive it as I am a big fan of huge lips and I have never used a suction lip cup before… Okay, I’ll admit it… I was one of those stupid idiots who tried ‘The Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge’ a while back, only I used a bottle top and a small empty jar instead of a proper suction cup. It’s embarrassing I know, I’m nearly 30… ha-ha! Although my lips did plump up after using the bottle top, I had an ugly bruise on my chin, my lips had a painful bluish tint and I had an unsightly purplish-red circle around my mouth for days which meant I had to hibernate. I swore down right there and then that I would never take up a challenge again, ha-ha.

What is the Hotlipz Lip Pump?

‘’HOTLIPZ Lip Pump is a revolutionary, cutting edge designed device enabling you to achieve the most perfect, full, thick, sexier ad shaped lips out there. Combining advanced technology with a hand operated suction pump, you can shape and contour the appearance of your lips, the way you like and naturally.’’ – Miss Pouty.

kat2.png

PROS:

It looks really nice! The lip shape of the suction cup is really gorgeous, and because it is quite large it looks like a little ornament, kinda. I have mine sitting on my dressing table and it looks the part!

It works! It does plump your lips. I often use Lip Voltage and this suction cup deffo plumps the lips more than Lip Voltage does!

It comes in a gorgeous presentable gift box with a red velvet drawstring bag, I think this would make a lovely gift if not to yourself, then for somebody else.

CONS:

It can hurt a little bit! Especially when using the attachment to create a double lobed line through your lips, (think Angelina Jolie’s bottom lip), it hurt as the attachment was digging into my lip to create the look but it wasn’t unpleasant and it was bearable.

kat.png

It is huge compared to other suction cups so you may struggle to fit in your handbag if you would want to take it out and about with you!

It is hard not to drool! The instructions state that you shouldn’t allow saliva inside the HOTLIPZ but I found that almost impossible to do so I had to make sure it was completely dry each time I used it because the suction was not as strong when there was saliva in the ‘lips’.

BEFORE & AFTER

6tag_260116-061346

untitledccc_edited

Verdict:

At first I didn’t like it. It took me ages to figure out how to use it properly and when I was trying to plump my lips the air just kept escaping. The instructions weren’t much help and it said to go to the website for a tutorial video on how to use it. I couldn’t find the video on their website so I googled ‘HOTLIPZ MISS POUTY REVIEW VIDEO’ and came across this.

I found that pouting first then putting the suction cup over your lips and sucking for a few seconds whilst pressing the underneath of the cup to release the air enabled the cup to stay put.

I had alright sized lips to begin with but I’ve always disliked my top lip which is nowhere near as big as my bottom dingy boat lip. I’d love to get my lips done properly but I’m scared of needles and terrified just in case something goes horribly wrong and I end up with a horrendous trout pout. So, this suction cup is my only option, it is not as long lasting as cosmetic surgery but for a short while it definitely gives you the same look. Plus I haven’t a penny to my name so this is definitely lighter on your purse too, no need for £300 ‘top-ups’ every month as this will last a hell of a long time.

Miss Pouty say after using the HOTLIPZ suction cup the results will last up to 4 hours. My lips were plumped for an hour at the most I’d say – two hours later they were still a little bigger than my normal sized lips but nowhere near as big as they were when I first used the suction cup. But an hour is good enough for me!

After using my lips felt a little delicate for a few hours later (I might have over-used it), although the next day they were fine and I had no bruising so was able to use the suction cup again!

I really love how full my lips look compared to before and I was looking in the mirror at my HUGE lips saying, ‘’oh my god’’ over and over because I really didn’t expect them to go as plump and big as they did! I was shocked, ha-ha. I will 100% be using this, absolutely! I’m very pleased with it!

WHERE TO BUY:

You can buy yourself one from Miss Pouty’s Amazon UK shop right HERE for just £16.99.

Remember – Don’t overuse it – you will be left with bruised, sore and blueish-purple lips.

Not a good look, eh!

 

 

MAXFACTOR MASTERPEICE | HIGH PRECISION LIQUID LINER | VELVET BLACK | REVIEW ❤

 

I love my liquid eyeliners, always have and always will. Cat like eyes are my definitely my thing and it’s not often that I go without my eye flicks. I love trying out new eyeliners and was very pleased when I was gifted MAXFACTOR’s MASTERPIECE High Precision Liquid Eyeliner in shade 01 | Velvet Black in return for an honest review. So, lets go!

What is it?

13043416_1558863194406364_9001850792486449661_n

MAXFACTOR says:

Transform your look with bold intensity. The unique paddle-shaped tip draws both a dramatic thick line and an elegant thin line, to create the precise look you want. The intense black, velvet formula glides on smoothly and dries quickly for chic sophistication or bold drama. The paddle-shaped tip gives you two glamorous looks in one: thick and dramatic, or fine and elegant, so you can dial up the drama to suit your look

My Thoughts

The Max Factor Masterpiece High Precision Liquid Eyeliner is meant to have the intensity of a liquid eyeliner with the precision of a pencil. It’s unique applicator looks paddle shaped and the tip is quite rounded and not pointy like other liners on the market.

 

8940442288158

 

The flat, thick paddle like side allows for a thicker, darker and more dramatic line and the actual tip/edge creates a softer line very close to the lash line. I use the tip for a guideline and the flat paddle to create and fill in my flick on the outer lash line. I found the tip works best to line my inner and middle lash line and it also helps to create a guideline on the outer edge before I use the paddle to gradually build the line from thin to thicker on the outer edge, creating a super dramatic look. I also love using the paddle bit to create a thicker line and flick all over for a more dramatic and striking look.

12991072_1558862304406453_4670377764136147615_n.jpg

Is it super black? Yes and no! You would think this eyeliner was a felt tip pen and I’ve found it does dry out pretty fast just like a felt tip would. The flatter, paddle side definitely creates a very black look but it starts out very black and gradually fades. Which is a shame. Somehow when using the thinner tip, the liquid liner appears off-black like a felt tip pen would when it is running out of ink. I have noticed that this liquid liner fades from one end to the other which results in more than one application. See pic below…

12990961_1558862161073134_2779055770765532420_n (2)

One good thing about the liquid liner is when I have my desired look I have found it to be long-lasting and it does stay put without the need for re-application.

After applying two or three applications I must say I do like the finished look. I have other liquid eyeliner that are more intense, more precise and a deeper shade of black but I ‘m loving the velvety, smoky look I’ve achieved. I especially love how it’s long lasting but I’d love the eyeliner much more if it was as precise as Maxfactor make out. Although it’s not my number one liquid eyeliner – I will definitely use it again, as I love how pretty my eyes look with it on.

I’ll give the MAXFACTOR Masterpiece High Precision Liquid Liner 3.5 stars out of 5! 😊

Here’s the end result.

I’m also wearing one coat of FIBERGENICS mascara on my eyelashes and my vegan friendly black eyeliner by Essential Care which I got in my LoveLula subscription box. 😊

Hope you all have a beautiful day. Mwah 😘

Review: Ultra Glam Glitter Lips By Beauty Boulevard 👄

 

 

Hi Glitter Dolls!

These past few weeks, I’ve had the pleasure of trying a couple of gorgeous glitter shades from Beauty Boulevard’s Glitter Lips collection. I love anything and everything that sparkles and glitters – so you can imagine how much fun I’ve had blingin’ my lips up!

Today is all about the flirty, fabulous and fluorescent shade known by the name ‘ULTRA GLAM’ which is a vivid lilac colour with subtle lavender tones and the slightest shimmer of gold.

WP_20150114_04_00_51_Pro

Out of all the shades I have previously reviewed – ‘Ultra Glam’ is by far the brightest, most daring and eye-catching colour I’ve had on my lips. It is definitely a Glitter Lips shade for the super confident who like their lip colour to be as bold and vibrant as their personality! If this sounds like you, then girlie… ‘Ultra Glam’ is your colour.

The gorgeous neon lavender colour will look amazing teamed with kohl or liquid liner and voluminous black lashes. It would brighten up a little black dress beautifully too – adding a pop of colour to your outfit!


Here’s how ‘ULTRA GLAM’ looks on the lips! 😍

The entire collection of the Glitter Lips shades are waterproof, smudge proof, kiss proof and party proof! Basically – everything proof!! You could binge-drink as many rosé wines as you want, eat like a pig, snog all night long and party hard like a rock star and the glitter will not budge. Did I mention slobber proof?… Yep… Ha! For you droolers out there – you could sleep like a baby for a week and your lips will stay glitter-licious. No sh!t.

The gloss bond has absolutely amazing staying power – unlike any other lipsticks. EVER!

Cherry Pie – Glitter Lips By Beauty Boulevard ❤

Hello Girls! 😘

As you know, I’ve done a few posts in the past about Glitter Lips by Beauty Boulevard. Everytime I try a new shade of theirs, I have a new favourite Glitter Lips, ha. I’m such a snide off!

Well there was one shade that I didn’t really FAVE much. I’ll be honest – Diamond In The Buff really wasn’t my colour, I thought my complexion was much too pale for it.

But the other shades… LOVE!

6tag_190116-105254

My favourite was ‘Ruby Slippers’ for quite a while but when I tried ‘Molly Dolly’ that became my favourite instead! 😂

Well girls, my new favourite Glitter Lips shade is now ‘Cherry Pie’ 😍. I cannot cope with how pretty it is. It’s definitely the sexiest Glitter Lips shade that I have tried so far.

6tag_240116-063633

First impression – before I put it on, I thought the ‘Cherry Pie’ glitter dust was similar to ‘Ruby Slippers’ in colour, just a little more pinky. When I tried it on though, it was deep pink with slight speckles of purple shining through when any light hit my lips.

6tag_240116-063525

I fell in LOVE with it straight away. ❤ It’s kind of pinky, purple, almost plum/ maroon and it reminds me of the Autumn/Winter ‘shades’ of lipstick that make your lips look ‘wine stained’, only with glitter added! I’d say it was more gothic than the other shades I’ve tried but still very pretty and girly.

6tag_240116-063552

‘Cherry Pie’ is a very glamorous colour and would look fab on all skin tones.

Pale or tanned. ❤

Here’s How It Looks on The Lips!

Now, because I have done three Glitter Lips reviews on my blog already, I thought I would not include the ‘how to apply and remove’ bit on this post as I feel like a parrot! 😂

Vintage Pretty – Glitter Lips By Beauty Boulevard ❤

Hey Glitter Dolls ❤

In this post I’ll be showing you the gorgeous shade ‘Vintage Pretty’ from Beauty Boulevard’s Glitter Lips collection. ❤

6tag_240116-074910

When I first saw the Vintage Pretty glitter dust, I weren’t sure how it was gonna look when it was applied as it was kinda two toned. But, when I put it on it was a lovely soft pink colour and super pretty. ‘Vintage Pretty’ is another one of my favourite Glitter Lips shades along with three others.

I mean come on… look how gorgeous it is! 😍

6tag_240116-075046

‘Vintage Pretty’ definitely lives up to its name. It looks darker in the pot than it does on the lips though. Think shabby chic, coral and dusky pink!

6tag_240116-075355

Although it’s still an eye-catching shade, it isn’t an in your face colour, so will be perfect for anyone who wants a pretty but toned down look or for girls who prefer a lighter shade rather than a bright one.

It’s just fab! I love it. ❤

6tag_240116-075630

This is how it looks on the lips!

6tag_190116-153953

I have already done four Glitter Lips review’s on my blog so I’m not going to bore explain to you all ‘how to apply and remove’ Glitter Lips..

Molly Dolly | Glitter Lips By Beauty Boulevard ❤

Hey Sexy Ladies 😉

If you’ve never tried Glitter Lips by Beauty Boulevard, you’re seriously missing out. Glittery lips are perfect for festivals, nights out with the girls or for adding extra wow factor to fancy dress costumes. You will definitely get a-lot of attention when wearing the sparkly Glitter Lips!

A few days ago, Beauty Boulevard kindly gifted me FOUR more different shades of Glitter Lips to try out! Do you know how happy I am right now! I nearly had a heart attack when the Postman delivered them, they are so bloody FAB and pretty!

 

6tag_190116-105254

I ❤ Glitter Lips

I’ve already tried the super glamorous shades ‘Ruby Slippers’ and ‘Diamond In The Buff’ in the past and lots of you loved how gorge they were. As a red lippie kinda girl. – Ruby Slippers was an instant fave of mine!!

I now have the shades Ultra Glam, Vintage Pretty, Cherry Pie and Molly Dolly to try out this week! So keep those pretty eyes peeled for my reviews!

Over the next few days I’ll be reviewing each one, but today I’m going to show you the gorgeous pink-a-licious shade known as ‘Molly Dolly’.

What’s Molly Dolly Like?

If Barbie wore Glitter Lipstick – Molly Dolly would definitely be her favourite Glitter Lips colour !

6tag_190116-142914

The Molly Dolly glitter dust is kind of fluorescent pink and looks JUICY and PRETTY and GIRLY and GORGEOUS and FABULOUS when applied. It has a kind of neon pinky/purple sheen to it too but looks very Barbie PINK on the lips! Lush. ❤

I must mention also how pretty the Glitter Lips box is. I love how the glitter dust sits underneath the love heart shape making a beautiful pink heart. So pretty! 😍

6tag_210116-063650

Applying Glitter Lips

To get gorgeous glittery lips you will need to make sure you’re lips are a blank canvas. Glitter Lips will need to be applied to clean, dry lips to achieve best results.

Apply the Glitter Lips gloss bond to your lips – making sure to apply it neatly, especially along your lip line. ❤

Remember: Wherever the bonding has been applied – the glitter will stick to it.

Once the gloss bond has turned from white to see-through, dab the glitter onto your lips, sparingly and gradually at first then build up to achieve the desired glitter effect. ❤

There you go! It’s very easy to apply! 😊

TIP: You could also use a lip liner in a shade near to the glitter colour you have chosen. This will make your lips look fuller, tidier and more defined.

TIP: Do the rest of your make-up before you apply Glitter Lips – leaving your lips till last. 😘

Taking Glitter Lips Off

Taking Glitter Lips off you’re lips is harder than your average lipsticks. As Glitter Lips is long lasting, smudge proof and waterproof – water alone will not really remove it. Although it is possible to remove the glitter using just water, it just takes a little longer to remove than a oil based make-up remover would.

Your usual makeup remover should do the job just fine, but if you don’t have any at hand you could use baby wipes, cleanser, toner, moisturiser or any type of oil. I prefer to use coconut oil to remove mine, as well as removing the glitter, it gives my lips some TLC too. I love coconut!

I’ve also found that when removing Glitter Lips, the glitter acts like an abrasive to the lips, giving them a little exfoliating scrub. Perfect way to remove dry skin from chapped lips! 😘

TIP: Once you have removed the glitter, apply some Vaseline or moisturising lip balm to keep your lips in tip-top condition!

Why I Love Glitter Lips ❤

Glitter Lips unite with TOWIE star Gemma Collins’ new clothing line ___

I love Glitter Lips because I am lazy! Ha-ha. On a night out when I’ve had one too many Double Vodka RedBulls – being vain and wanting to look good while partying goes out of the window. (I’m a crazy drunk! 😂)

I forget to apply my lipstick throughout the night but when I wear Glitter Lips, I don’t have to top up my lip colour as Glitter Lips stays put, no matter how hard I party. The billion selfies I take on my phone always look much more glamorous too. 😊

Glitter Lips is not tested on animals, uses cosmetic grade glitter and is safe to use on children aged 3 and over! Little girls love Glitter Lips too! 👄

Now, on the box it says one application has staying  power for up to 8 hours, no matter how much you eat, drink, party or kiss 😉 – so I put it to the test and applied my Glitter Lips at 12 pm, keeping it on all day and night. I even slept with it on and was really surprised that it was still perfectly in place the following morning.

Different Shades

So far, there are 17 shades of Glitter Lips to choose from. All are £12.50 each. ❤💜💚💛💙

Fibregenics 3 In 1 Mascara By Dreamweave & Co

Hey girls! 👍

Lately, I’m absolutely loving online beauty store, ‘To Make You Gorgeous’.  At the moment it is my favourite place to purchase all my beauty products. They have everything under one roof and it is the perfect website for make up and beauty lovers like myself.

After my Lip Voltage review, I was asked to review the latest product by Dreamweave & Co, which I’m really excited about as I love Dreamweave & Co mascara’s. The one I’m reviewing today is a 3 In 1 Direct Bond Mascara, designed as a one step fibre mascara with a direct bonding system.

12189552_1508216632804354_140334617837845196_n

No mess, no fuss, just thick, luscious lashes with the false lash effect. The Fibergenics 3 In 1 Mascara is about to take the beauty industry by storm and once you have seen my pics, you will understand why. This direct bond mascara seriously adds length to even the shortest of eyelashes!

The Fibregenics mascara is already loved by celebrities such as the TOWIE’s Francesca Parkman and the beautiful Binky from Made In Chelsea.

Dreamweave & Co

Dreamweave & Co is well known for its mascara’s and I’ve used a few of them already.  I knew before I had even tried the Fibergenics Mascara that it would be something to shout about as the results of the Dreamweave mascara’s I’ve tried in the past have always been pretty impressive. Like all Dreamweave products, the Fibregenics Mascara will no doubt be as popular as Lip Voltage was, back when the lip plumper first hit the beauty scene.

Not Tested On Animals

First thing I did before using the mascara was to check if it was animal friendly. Don’t worry, I’m not planning on giving my dogs luscious, long lashes anytime soon! 😂 The mascara has not been tested on animals so I’m pleased about that. Why should an animal suffer just so us humans can look beautiful, eh! 😊

The Contents

First of all, I’ll tell you about the packaging. It is so pretty! They say you should not judge a book by its cover but I’m a sucker for pretty covers and if a product has fabulous packaging – I’m definitely more inclined to purchase it. Call me shallow! 😂

The mascara comes in a black and silver metallic effect box. The front of the box is kind of like a mirror and it is possible to put your mascara on and use the box as a mirror, ha-ha. It is not as clear as a real mirror but you can certainly see your reflection.

On the back of the box you have a list of ingredients and inside the box is a little instructions leaflet and of course, the Fibergenics Mascara which is in a black case with silver writing in a pretty font.

12208380_1508216576137693_1631001761898756698_n

My Results After Using Fibregenics

I started out by cleansing my face and lashes as I wanted a blank canvas to apply the mascara to. After one coat, my eyelashes were much longer and thicker without looking too fake. They looked very lush and natural after applying three coats but I continued building them up and I was pretty amazed at how long they were getting. In my before pic you can see how short and blonde my lashes were. I think there is a huge difference as you can see. In my before pic my eyes appear tired and lifeless looking to me. The mascara has certainly brightened my eyes up. I actually look like a girl now! Ha-ha. 👸

11707418_1508210652804952_5349321691748486832_n

I do love how the brush is not one of those useless wands that many make-up brands seem to be using nowadays. I prefer an old fashioned, basic mascara brush and Dreamweave certainly seem to know what type of mascara wand most of us ladies like to use.

12193803_1508237786135572_9119874066147133171_n

At the moment I have dyed jet black hair and eyebrows but naturally, I’m quite fair skinned with fair hair. My eyebrows and lashes are practically see through so I love to use ultra black mascara to make my invisible lashes stand out. Fibregenics gives a deep black coating to my lashes from root to tip. No more baldy appearing eyelashes! 😂

12227587_1508210692804948_8183539204856429372_n

My lashes are quite short in length but when I apply a really good mascara, they can look like I am wearing individual lashes. That is why I love Fibregenics! My lashes have gone from being transparent and non existent to long, thick and dark and I really do have the false lash effect after using Fibregenics. I am shocked at how long they are! Especially compared to before.

12208372_1508210646138286_6141383137946353655_n

I have green-blue eyes and the colour of them definitely stands out after applying Fibregenics. It makes my eyes pop and the lash colour contrasts the colour of my eyes perfectly. I love how they look. I will definitely be using this mascara from now on and I’ve already recommended it to my friends who have also got theirs from tomakeyougorgeous.co.uk.

WARNING! ⚠

Important advice for you all –  don’t go overboard when building your lashes up. At one point I got a little greedy and may have applied too much. Hello spider eyes! So with every coat of the Fibregenics Mascara that you apply, make sure you take a look at your lashes before you add more mascara to them. If you do apply too much, you will end up with clumpy eyelashes so be cautious! A little goes a long way!

Also, keep some cotton buds at your side when applying the mascara. If you’re anything like me you will need them to remove mascara from your skin! I’m so messy, ha-ha.

Check out Icon Fashion House to see the Fibregenics video review on YouTube.

How To Apply

12208394_1077010168977803_2507846448720928860_n

Simply apply like you would with any mascara. Sweep the mascara brush upwards from root to tip, grasping each lash to attach the unique fibre bonding system. Coat from every angle, to achieve desired effect. Once applied, I personally like to touch up the ends of my lashes only to achieve maximum length.

TIP: Add some Black Kohl Eyeliner to your inner lashline and/or Black Liquid Eyeliner to your top lash line for extra gorgeousness!

Where To Buy

Although it is not yet out on general release, it is available from only a few websites at the moment, tomakeyougorgeous.co.uk being one of them.

Lip Voltage | To Make You Gorgeous ❤

Hello ladies!

I feel like a kid on Christmas morning! I’m so happy… x

tomakeyougorgeous.co.uk have sent me my absolute favourite lip product of all time. Can you guess what it is?

12193361_1507283776230973_4485879301122076173_n

Yes, I’ve been sent Lip Voltage! Woohoo! Lip Voltage, in my opinion is the best thing since sliced bread… If you have seen my photograph’s you’re probably thinking I don’t need to plump my lips as they are kinda big already.

The reason I love wearing Lip Voltage is not to make my lips bigger as much, but instead more fuller and even. Let’s face it! My bottom lip is like a dingy boat, haha. If I was stranded at sea, I reckon I would be pretty safe. It’s huge compared to my top lip. So I like to make my top lip a little fuller with Lip Voltage so the overall appearance of my lips seem more even.

If my bottom lip was the same size as my top lip you would say I had skinny lips! If my top lip was the same size as my bottom lip I would probably be close to Angelina Jolie lips. God damn you top lip you have ruined my life! 😂 So yeah, basically, I wear Lip Voltage to plump up my anorexic top lip so its closer in size to my chunky bottom lip.

Where Have You Been All My Life

I’ve been trying to get hold of some lip voltage for ages. Without any luck. It seems most websites who advertise that they sell it, no longer do or say it is out of stock until further notice. Many websites’ have said they would e-mail me as soon as it’s back in stock, but they never have. I figure I’ll be a 90-year-old woman before they get around to it!

I searched google and after clicking on a few websites, I was quickly back on my Lip Voltage search after discovering there wasn’t any available to buy. A few years back when Lip Voltage was at its most popular, sweeping the female nation, it was fairly easy to find a supplier. But, nowadays it seems to have vanished!

So, can you imagine how happy I was when I found out To Make You Gorgeous had some in stock.

What, Why, How & When

I’m sure most of you are aware what Lip Voltage is. For those who aren’t, I’m going to fill you in on the basics and hopefully help you to understand what Lip Voltage is, why you should use it and of course, how to use it! So, here goes…

What is Lip Voltage

Lip Voltage is a plumping lip gloss made by Dreamweave & Co. It is a non-injectable lip plumper. It is a quick absorbing peptide lip treatment, using Nano technology to fill and give volume to the lips. You can control how much plump you want in your pout by literally ‘mixing up’ the voltage of this duo lip product.

By adding a VBE* infused lip plumper to the peptide treatment, mixing the formula together to achieve your desired ‘voltage’.

The combined ingredients increases the blood flow to your lips, mimicking the effects of hot chilli peppers.

*VBE (Vanillyl Butyl Ether) is a chemical formulation that induces an enduring, gentle warming and enhanced microcirculation to enhance and plump the lips.

You can customise the strength of the voltage to low, medium and high voltage, which boosts the plumping effect in just a few drops!

Lip Voltage comes in a small box containing  peptide in clear case with a wand applicator, which basically looks like a regular lip gloss. A syringe filled with VBE* serum is included as well as instructions. It is very important that first time users read the instructions before using the product.

12193585_1507283799564304_9101829037143872626_n

Why Do People Use Lip Voltage

There are lots of reasons why somebody would use Lip Voltage. The main one obviously being to achieve bigger lips.
Myself personally, as mentioned above, use it to make both my top and bottom lip similar in size. It’s also used to make skinny lips appear bigger, bigger lips more even and uneven lips more fuller.

The great thing about Lip Voltage is with frequent use over time, the treatment eventually builds collagen in your lips to create softer, fuller lips. So another reason people use Lip Voltage is to gradually improve the look of the lips even when not wearing the product.

I also think people use it as an alternative to cosmetic surgery. I certainly do! Many people simply cannot afford lip fillers and if like myself, they are PETRIFIED of needles. So instead of having lip injections to make their lips bigger, people choose the cheaper, safer and easier alternative by plumping their lips with Lip Voltage instead.

Beauty is pain, yes! But, when it comes down to needles, frankly, I’m a big wimp! So, hooray for Lip Voltage! 😊

How To Use Lip Voltage

12107037_1507283829564301_6880158423392921107_n

After reading the instructions that come with the Lip Voltage, take the VBE serum (syringe) and apply one drop into the peptide (lip gloss).  Place the applicator wand back into the gloss and mix for about 60 seconds and you’re ready to go….

Now use the Lip Voltage gloss on your lips like you would a normal lip gloss, paying more attention to the area’s you specifically want plumping. Within a minute or so you will see that the Voltage is working and will definitely feel it working!

TIP – Apply some Lip Voltage above the cupids bow for more dramatic results.

WARNING ⚠

Please don’t make the same mistake as me when I first used it a few years back. I wasn’t sure how much serum to put into the gloss so I asked who I thought was my intelligent boyfriend to put the serum into the gloss for me. The end results basically concluded that I was the brains in our relationship as the dope accidentally put the whole of the serum into the gloss.

His excuse was he thought that all of the serum should go into the gloss! NO, NO, NO! 😂

So, when he handed me the mixed Lip Voltage I didn’t know he had put it all in! 😂 Can you imagine my face! My lips felt like I had a volcano erupting on my lips. It was so bad. What he done was a sackable offence. He really should count himself lucky that I didn’t dump his ass! 😂

So, ladies. Don’t get a man to mix the Voltage for you. They are brain-dead! 😂 Do it yourself! Be gentle when putting the serum into the peptide gloss as it comes out pretty quick and if you press too hard on the syringe, more serum will come out than intended. 😊

After You Have Applied Lip Voltage

Actually mixing it and using it, is not the difficult part. The hardest part is keeping it on  after you’ve applied it. Ha-ha.

I’m not going to lie to you lady’s… IT HURTS LIKE A BITCH! 👊

Imagine rubbing hot chilli powder over your lips. Imagine your lips being on fire! 😂 Pretty much, this is how it feels. But, the feeling is over within ten minutes so don’t be put off!

So keep this in mind when applying the VBE serum to the peptide gloss. The more drops you apply to the gloss, the more intense the chilli sensation is, so one drop first before increasing slowly if you desire more voltage.

A Little Guideline

The more Voltage drops you apply, the more it will hurt! So I really wouldn’t recommend adding more than three drops. One drop doesn’t affect me but I can definitely feel the burn after using three drops.

1 Drop – Low Voltage

2 Drops – Medium Voltage

3 Drops – High Voltage

4+ Drops – Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrghhhhhh!!!

It does sting for a while after applying the Lip Voltage but the sensation stops after around ten minutes. So just wait it out. Man up and handle the chilli feeling. 👊

Period pain is much worse! 😉😂

Here are my before and after pictures… Eat your heart out Kylie Jenner 😂😂😂

12208326_1507272622898755_5875824774038118704_n12196118_1507272606232090_3302840749574026940_n

So ladies I hope you have enjoyed reading my Lip Voltage Review. Remember, whether you want a plumped-up perfected pout, or simply natural, soft, beautiful lips, Lip Voltage lets you mix it up and plump it up for the lips you’ve always wanted!

This really is one beauty must-have at the top of every ladies wish-list. A big favourite with women, celebrities and make-up artists worldwide.

If you would like to buy some Lip Voltage for yourself then head over to tomakeyougorgeous.co.uk to snap some up. It is only £13.99 to buy. Bargain, eh!

Oh and if any of my male followers are reading, boyfriends’, husbands’ and fiancées’ – Little bit of advice for you…  buy her something she will love… Lip Voltage is the perfect gift for us ladies, especially makeup lovers like myself and with Christmas coming up, instead of buying a predictable gift for the special lady in your life, this year, be a star and surprise her with some Lip Voltage on Christmas morning… I guarantee you will put a smile on her face. You will certainly put a pout on her face, no doubt about that! 😉

Instead of a hot chilli sensation like ‘MIX UP THE VOLTAGE’ Ice Up The Voltage has a cooler, frosty sensation. I’m super excited to share my review with you all! Ice Up The Voltage is now available to buy at To Make You Gorgeous.

Review: Jewelsy – Iridescent Dragonfly Choker

Have you seen how absolutely GORGEOUS this Iridescent Dragonfly Choker is! I won this choker in a giveaway on Twitter and I was told by the lovely Silvana that I could choose whatever I wanted from the Jewelsy website. So, I had a little browse on the website and came across this little stunner – I just had to get it.

I love pretty jewellery and I’m always on the lookout for quirky costume jewellery and small companies who sell unique handmade pieces that you won’t find anywhere else, so I’m really glad that I have came across Jewelsy who are an affordable fashion jewellery company who sell handmade jewellery and accessories with a bohemian and grungy vibe. They are based in the UK but they do ship worldwide.

The Iridescent Dragonfly Choker is serious prettiness. It has a white sparkly iridescent ribbon and it is the prettiest ribbon I’ve ever seen. The dragonfly pendant is truly beautiful – it has a rose gold tone with lots of beautiful, colourful rhinestones along the body of the dragonfly. It’s absolutely gorgeous and it is only £4.99 to buy which is quite cheap but it certainly doesn’t look it. I would pay over £20 for a choker as fabulous as this one.

Jewelsy also have lots of other fabulous pieces and everything on the website is pretty cheap and so damn pretty. I’ve seen a few other things I want to buy,  so will post a few pictures to my instagram page once I have bought them.

Review: Diamond In The Buff – Glitter Lips By Beauty Boulevard

11034041_1510566342569383_8536504799642955678_n

I love Glitter Lips by Beauty Boulevard. I’ve tried Ruby Slippers before which I absolutely loved (I’m a red lippie kinda girl) and I’ve just tried the sparkling ‘Diamond In The Buff’.

I can’t wait to test the other shades out and one day I will be a confirmed glitterholic and will have tried all 17 shades (2 down, 15 to go) 😘

Diamond in the buff is a pretty sparkly lip colour from the Glitter Lips collection, quite neutral and not as shocking compared to the fabulous, Ruby Slippers. It did have a green undertone (which I didn’t like one bit) when I applied too much and I was advised by the lovely lady at Beauty Boulevard to apply a THIN coating of Glitter Dust after the bond glue has dried. If you apply too much of Diamond In The Buff Glitter dust, YOU WILL END UP WITH GREEN LIPS. Not attractive. So remember to use sparingly. If you don’t go overboard with the glitter dust it will look beautiful! ❤

This shade is great for those who aren’t as daring as my fellow Ruby Slippers admirer’s and is also fab for both a toned down daytime look or a pretty evening look teamed with smoky eyes and false eyelashes for a night out with the girls. Your little princess would also love this colour and would go perfectly with her princess dress for fancy dress parties. We all know how little girls love to dress up and what princess doesn’t love glitter. (On children, I suggest using a little Vaseline or lip balm in replacement of the bonding glue)

I do think Glitter Lips by beauty Boulevard has more glitter included than bonding glue in their boxes but it all depends on how much glitter dust you actually apply.

Inside the box:

😊  APPLICATOR BRUSH

😊 GLITTER LIPS GLOSS BOND

😊 PREMIUM GLITTER SHADE DIAMOND IN THE BUFF

There are 17 different Glitter Lips shade’s (and counting) to choose from and is available to buy on the Beauty Boulevard website – it is £12.50 to buy. (Link to website is below)

For those who haven’t read my last review of Ruby Slippers – Glitter Lips, which included a little how to apply paragraph, here goes lovelies’.

Ensure lips are clean, dry and moisturised (no chapped lips) – TIP – Apply one lip at a time.

    1. Keeping lips parted, apply the gloss. Allow the gloss to turn from white to gleam. (apply gloss as you would do lip-gloss)
    2. Apply glitter generously to the lips, ensuring an even coverage. (thinly for Diamond In The Duff) – TIP – Dampen applicator pad to help lift glitter.
    3. Dust off excess glitter and you are ready to go. – TIP – Remove with an oil based makeup remover.

untitleduhuhuhubSo my overall thought about Diamond In The Duff –   pretty, sparkling pink, gold, green and silver colour’s, neutral and very girly but I must admit I still prefer my beloved Ruby Slippers which is rose-red, bold and certainly eye-catching.

Review: Glitter Lips By Beauty Boulevard – Ruby Slippers

Remember how sparkly Dorothy’s Ruby Slippers were from The Wizard Of Oz?Well, that’s how sparkly my lips are right now and I absolutely love them!

I’m a red lippie kinda gir that rarely goes without my red lipstick, so I will definitely be wearing this fabulous little lip product from now on, especially for nights on the tiles!

The packaging is gorge! The little heart at the bottom of box shows the Ruby Slippers glitter dust perfectly. Very pretty 🙂

Inside the box:

⭐ A double-sided applicator brush

⭐ Glitter Lips gloss bond

⭐ Ruby Slippers glitter dust in a little pot.

I believe there are 17 different shade’s to choose from at Glitter Lips By Beauty Boulevard  and they’re £12.50 to buy. 

There is approximately 25 applications per box – so will last for ages.

On the box Glitter Lips states all their glitters stay put for up to eight hours, after testing it out, I’ve come to the conclusion that it will stay on for 50 years if you let it! It has got great staying power! You can drink, eat kiss and party and it won’t affect the glitter on your lips! The Glitter Lips Gloss Bond is good stuff.

On a recent night out – I must have had around 20+ girls ask where they can purchase it. Ha. Everybody loved it. My boyfiend said I looked pretty too and he NEVER says nice things. EVER. Ha-ha!

Applying Glitter Lips

 Apply the Glitter Lips Gloss Bond to your lips like you would a lip-gloss. The bond will appear white and after 30 seconds should be translucent. When the Gloss Bond has dried and is no longer visible, dab the applicator brush into the pot of glitter and apply to your lips by dabbing. Once the bond has been covered in glitter, if you notice any patches dab a little more Gloss Bond onto the glitter-less bits, wait till dried then touch up with glitter.

I applied some red lip-liner on the outline of my lips before I put the glitter dust on.
