Plump It


I want lips like Kylie Jenner. Whether hers are real or not, is another matter. I do already have a fairly substantial pout but for the past few months, thoughts of fillers have come to mind. My bottom lip is much heavier than my top lip. However, being a bit adverse to needles, I thought I would try some non-injection options to plump up my lips.

Firstly, Plump Potion in Rose Cristal* is by the American brand Physician's Formula. The brand has just launched int the South of Ireland and is set to launch in Belfast soon (I'll be sure to keep you updated). The Plump Potion is a slightly pink tinted gloss. It makes the lips very glossy and the plumping element is strong when you first apply it. The "sting" is pleasant and wears off quickly. I have found that this has been a great solution for the weekend as the results are pretty substantial making for the perfect Kylie Jenner pout for your evening out. The gloss also still works on top of lipstick which is also great for transforming some of your favourite matte shades into a high gloss shine. 

Colour Bomb by Too Faced* is a really interesting concept- a Chubby-Stick hybrid of lip gloss/stick which also contains a plumping element. I have the colour Coral Pop which is a fairy bright coral which can be layered for stronger colour or patted in as a tint. The product also smells amazing because of the menthol plumping ingredients. The sting is light and leaves the lips looking smooth and nourished. This is my everyday option and I'm going to invest in some more of the colours including "Never Enough Nude" which looks like the perfect Bardot pout colour. 

I think the idea of fillers is truly out of my head now- these products do the trick!
