Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme Lip Plumper Review

Hello,

Thanks to Kardashians and Jenners, plump lips is one of the crazy things in the world of glam.

While there are a lot of products claiming that they give you plump lips, I have come across multiple medium to good reviews of this one lip plumping product called – lip injection.

Na, I am not saying injections/ needles. It’s the product’s name.

Have you heard about the brand ‘Too faced’? They have this lip product called ‘Lip Injection Extreme Lip Plumper’. The brand wasn’t available in India until last week. Nykaa has now launched this brand and the products are now available online and at Nykaa stores.

Needless to say, I was quite curious to try this out. I said curious but I knew it will not be any magical portion to give any drastic results. So, I bought a smaller sized product this week. Let me tell you how it worked or not worked for me.

It has all details about the product. Ingredients, shelf life, how to use, what to expect etc.

Product comes in a transparent tube packing, just like a lip-gloss packing. The golden cap with the design makes it look interesting. The transparency of the tube makes it easier to keep an eye on quantity of the product inside.

The applicator is quite soft and it is typical doe foot applicator. Makes it easy to apply the product.

Fragrance:
It has very fresh fruity smell. Reminds of boomer chewing gums.

Color:
It is transparent with glossy finish.

My Experience:
It says apply it on perimeter of your lips. Wait for 5 to 10 minutes for it to work.
Instead of going with the instructions, I applied it all over my lips.

I had seen bunch of videos/ reviews. Where the YouTubers used to say that after few seconds of applying it starts working. It feels like multiple needles on lips, it stings. Some even said it feels like your lips are burning.

In my case, hell no..! I did feel little tingling within few seconds of application. But that’s it. Nothing more than that. Tingling lasted for a minute max. I was expecting little more (thanks to the tons of reviews I had watched before) but it did not do anything much..!

Here are the before and after pictures of my lips. After picture was taken after 7 minutes of application. I can see very minute change, nothing ‘extreme’ in terms of plumping.

Let’s talk about hydration. I must say, it did add good hydration to my lips. I have dry lips. Regular application of lip balm, every hour at least, is a must. But this did add enough hydration. I did not feel any dryness for 3 to 4 hours. It’s a satisfying amount of time considering the fact that I have dry lips and I sit in air conditned environment.

Things I Liked:

  • Travel friendly packing.
  • Transparent bottle makes it easier to keep track of the quantity left inside.
  • Smells nice.
  • Adds hydration to your lips.
  • You can use it above lipstick to add shine and hydration.
  • Applicator makes the application easy.
  • Non sticky consistency slides easily.

 

Thing I Did not Like:

  • Main purpose of the product is not really served. Plumping wasn’t much in my case at least.
  • Pricey.

Repurchase:
Umm I don’t think I will repurchase. In fact I am glad that I went for smaller version instead of the bigger one. I loved the hydration part. But I have bunch of good lip balms which add hydration, with price way less than this one. Plus, plumping did not really worked for me. So I don’t think I will buy again.

How to Store Perfumes Right…

Hey….

Most happy and hopeful day is here… Friday is here…!!! Whats your plans for the weekend??? Ummm I am not sure about weekend plans, but gonna have my spa day for sure..

People who know me also know that I am a perfume freak. Even at my work place, people call me smell bomb… I always end up correcting them ‘Fragrance bomb’ would sound much better. giggle

Everyone has got their own kind of perfumes. Some like strong one… Some like Milder ones, some like fruity, some like floral. Well, I love something mild, floral/fruity, sweet fragrance… I always always end up buying perfumes even though I have a huge collection of them. I every time tell myself that “this is going to be last one. I ‘ll buy my next perfume once I finish all my stock”. But, I always end up buying a perfume whom I can not forget after smelling it. I try to resist but the very next day it will be added to my collection. #ConfessionOfShopaholic
So, when I love them so much, of course I do take care of them. Here is a quick post about how to store your darling perfumes, so that they last long.

  • Store them in a place with no/less humidity
    Humidity effects the quality of perfume. Choose a cool dark place to store your perfumes.

  • Closet is an ideal place to store.
    I have this shelf in my closet reserved for my perfumes. Closet is free from light and usually has a consistent cooler temperature.

  • Storing perfume in bathroom??? No…!!!
    Spraying perfume right after the shower, is the best practice to make perfume last long. But, it effects the perfume’s quality. So, if you have been storing them in bathroom, take them away..!!!

  • Store them inside box.
    Box will protect them further from sunlight and heat. Hence storing them in a box would be preferred.

  • Take care of the cap:
    You won’t really get to know the importance of the cap of the perfume unless and until you break/lose them.

  • Avoid keeping those fragile glass bottles on higher shelves.
    It breaks your heart seeing your favorite perfume shattered all over the floor. To avoid such accidental breakages, try to keep them on lower shelves.

Hope you find these perfume tips helpful… !!! Keep sprinkling those magical fragrances and enjoy the little aroma therapy…!!!

Love for Perfumes…

Hey girlies,

 “A woman’s perfume tells more about her, than her handwriting” –  Christian Dior
Raise your hand if you are a perfume addict like me. I have a collection of body mists and perfumes which match my mood. Sweet floral fragrances make my heart melt. Hence I end up buying the mostly sweet girly mists. Which type of fragrance do you love???

If you ask me which are my favorite mist and perfume… I would say “Passion Struck Body Mist from Victoria Secret” and “Zara Woman  Black Perfume”. They are amazing. I am pretty sure, girls who love mild sweet fragrance are making note of these cuties’ names. wink

Fragrance Notes:

Just like music, a perfume’s fragrances can be classified into 3 notes based on their staying power. Let me give you a quick glimpse of the 3 fragrance notes.

 1. Top/ Head notes:

These are perceived immediately on application. (Sometimes, you might have heard the person at store,  after spraying the perfume saying” wait for a while to smell the perfume”. This might be because, the perfume might not be a top/head note.

2. Middle / Heart notes:

These are the perfumes, which become pleasant with time.

3. Base note:

These are the perfumes which are not perceived within 30 minutes of application.

Categories Based on Fragrance Type:

They can also be classified based on the fragrance type. The chart below is useful to know more about the categorization.


Sometimes when people look at my body mist bottle and ask me which perfume do I use, I correct them saying its body mist not a perfume. smile  Then the obvious question pops in. “What is the difference between perfume and a body mist…!!!” So, today I thought why don’t I share the difference between them here, in mygirlypedia.

So, what is a perfume… Perfume is a mixture of fragrant essential oils and aromatic components. Where as, body mist is lighter, milder version of perfume with more water content. Which makes it safe to apply directly on skin. Please note, both contain alcohol contents in them. Alcohol content makes the perfume/ mist to evaporate faster.
Below are some of the notable differences between perfume and body mist.

Perfume Body Mist
Water content is less Water based
Strong fragrance Lighter fragrance
Lasts longer Does not last long
Expensive Non expensive
Contains oils Does not contain oil
Concentrated Less concentrated
Not recommended to use directly on skin Can be used directly on skin

Some of the tips to be followed, in order to make your perfume last longer:

  1. Fragrance lasts longer on moisturized skin. So, for the oily beauties, the fragrance lasts longer. If your skin is dry, no worries. Apply a good moisturizer before applying the fragrance. Applying moisturizer of same brand(just like Victoria secret body lotion) makes the fragrance last really long. This is the reason, using body wash, lotion and fragrance from same fragrance line is always recommended.
  2. Applying mist/perfume on pulse points is a great idea to make the fragrance last longer. Like for example,
  • Behind your ear
  • Bottom of your throat
  • On your wrist
  • Inside your elbow
  • Behind your knee
  1. Always, always store the perfume/ mists away from heat, light and humidity. They break the molecules and hence downgrade the quality of fragrance.

  2. You can apply Vaseline jelly on pulse points before applying the mist. The jelly helps in trapping the fragrance and makes it last long.

  3. Best time to apply mist is soon after you step out of bath. The open pores absorb the fragrance better.


Perfume etiquette:

Yes there are certain rules / etiquette to follow, when it comes to perfumes.

  1. You might have observed some of your friends/colleagues wearing strong perfumes to school/office. I am sure most of us do not like the strong fragrances. In order to avoid the inconvenience to others, avoid wearing strong fragrance perfumes to workplace or school.
  2. Too much is too bad, so is not using perfume. I have seen so many people, who really need a good perfume. *phew* Spray a good mist/perfume to avoid body odor.
    When the shelf life of a perfume gets over, please dump it. I know most of the girls are emotionally attached to certain stuffs. (I am one among them.. *hehe* ). In this case, you can keep them. But do not use them.
  3. Before spraying perfume on your clothes, make sure it is fabric friendly. Certain perfume leave permanent stain on clothes. *ouch*

These are some of the information I have about fragrances.  smile

After the shopping therapy, aroma therapy works best for me…!!! wink If you also love perfumes and mists, do let me know your favorite ones. Would love to try them.

Happy Weekend beautiful,

Pallavi ❤
