TONYMOLY Kiss Kiss Lovely Lip Patch Review

Skin covering lips is thin and needs more hydration. Lip balms are good way to do so but once in a while they need deep hydration just like our facial skin.

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.

Brand : Too Faced

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.

Tried and Tested Tips to Avoid Chapped Lips

Dos, Don’ts and Special bonus tips to keep your lips soft and plump this winter.

Hello My Dear Beautiful Reader,

Winter is here. It’s too chilly here at Pune since a week. While I enjoy taking long cozy naps, my skin is screaming for more and more moisture day by day..!!

Skin covering lips is the thinnest layer of skin. Which makes it more prone to climatic changes and it requires more care. Today, I am going to share some tried and tested tricks and tips to take care of your lips so that you avoid cracked or chapped lips.

  • Firstly moisturization. Add a good moisturizing lip balm in your beauty routine. Apply, reapply whenever needed. I would recommend this lip balm
  • Use lip balm with SPF before you step out. This avoids sun damage while keeping your lips moisturized.
  • Scrubbing is a must. You can use some homemade scrubs or a good scrub from market to scrub away the dead skin cells from your lips. You can use scrub daily or 2-3 times a week. Scrubbing lips also promotes blood circulation and make lips look plump. I love these two scrubs the most – Forest Essential Lip Scrub and MAC Lip Scrub. If you are looking for DIY lip scrub recipes, here you go. 
  • Drink loads of water. Water not only flushes out toxins from body but also keeps skin hydrated from within.

  • Lip mask are best friends in winter. Just like sheet masks for face, we do get masks for lips. All you need to do is place them over your lips to add deep moisture. There are lot of brands which have introduced some good lip masks to the market. If you are someone who love home remedies over chemicals, check this post of mine for DIY Lip Mask
  • While lips are dry, we tend to lick our lips. Let’s admit that it does give temporary relief from the dry lips. But the saliva evaporates quickly and it leaves lips even more dry. That’s the reason we should avoid licking lips and instead use lip balm when you feel the dryness.  
  • Avoid matte finish lipsticks. As the formula is quite drying, they enhance the cracks on lips and can make them more dry. Instead go for moisturizing lip tints/ lip glosses to add tint, shine + moisture.
  • When I was a kid I had this weird habit of peeling off flaky skin from my lips. Ouch… Not only it hurts, it also does no good to lips. So please don’t be baby me and do not peel pick flaky skin. Instead use lip scrub as mentioned above.

 

Bonus Tips:

4444

  • If you are too lazy to prepare a lip scrub/ get one, use toothbrush to scrub your lips. Yup it’s that simple. Wet the lips and use toothbrush to brush off the dry skin. Be gentle. Once done, don’t forget to apply lip balm..! You are welcome. 😉
  • If your lips are super dry and you haven’t found your ‘the lip balm’ (you know what I mean), then I have coupe of kitchen ingredients which I love. Honey and ghee. You can mix them or can use separately. Just apply a layer of it on your lips and let it work overnight. You will wake up with much much softer lips in the morning. 

Enjoy winter..!!!

Everything You Need to Know About Derma Rollers

Have you heard about the new hottest skin care trend – ‘Derma Roller’???

I will tell you allll the details about this skin care technique in this post today.

So, to start with – What is a derma roller???

article-1226193-071CEA4F000005DC-794_634x332
Derma roller is a tool with a wheel. The interesting part of this wheel is, it has 100 to 1000 micro needles on it..!!!

How does it works???

The whole idea behind the tool is, using the handle you will roll the wheel all over your face. The needles will penetrate into your skin and reach the area where collagen and elastin is produced.

How to Choose the Right Derma Roller for Your Needs???

Needle Length

This plays a significant role when it comes to ‘serving the purposes’. Different needles’ length, different the action.

Let me list the ideal length of needle for massaging face parts:
Forehead – Up to 0.75 mm
Under Eyes – Up to 0.75 mm
Cheeks – Up to 0.75 mm
Nose – Up to 1.0 mm
Nose Tip – Up to 1.5 mm
Chin – Up to 0.75 mm
Neck – Up to 0.75 mm
Upper Lips – Up to 0.75 mm

Derma rollers vs stamps

Number of Needles:

Roller with broader wheel with maximum needles can be ideal to treat larger areas like neck.

Smaller roller is recommended for face.

Length of Handle –

Depending on your comfort, you can choose the one for you.

Advantages of Using Derma Roller

 

  • As I mentioned earlier, it punchers skin cells. Thus helps in penetration of the products you use inside the cells. Which will help you get 100% benefits of the product you use.
  • You can get plumper lips by using derma roller over your lips.
  • The fact is it does damage skin cells. But that is how it works. As and when skin cell is damaged, there is production of collagen. Thus making the skin plumper and glow.

  • Using roller on wrinkles can work wonders. Collagen and elastin helps in creation of new cells and bye bye Winkles.
  • Collagen production also helps in curing the skin imperfections like – scars’ marks, sun damage, hyper pigmentation, stretch marks etc.
  • Also, massaging head with derma roller will helps in producing hair growth hormones. Thus helping in hair growth and curing baldness.

 

 

Things to Consider When You Opt for Derma Roller:

 

  • Hygiene – Do not share your roller with someone else. Always clean it before using it.
  • Roller needles with length 0.50 mm or more should not be used daily. Using it frequently will cause more harm than good. Hence using them once in 4 to 6 weeks is recommended.

derma-roller-side-effects

  • Make sure the product which you are using on your face is safe and you are not allergic to it. Because, the darma roller helps the product to get into the skin. If you are allergic, you might end up worsening the situation.
  • Do not use it on pimples. This can cause more blunders than wonders on your skin.
  • Be extra cautious while using it around your eyes. As they are the most delicate organ.
  • If you are less tolerant to pain, this is not for you. Depending on your comfort go ahead with the method.

 

Please note:

Micro-Needling-before-after-Face

At the end of the day they are needles. They puncture your skin cells. Most common and obvious thing that will happen is that the bleeding and the pain.

If you are using needles with length 0.25 mm or below, the pain is very negligible or no pain. But, 0.5 mm are happened to be painful and also effective.

Only if you think your skin need the treatment and the pain is worth, go ahead. You can Buy it from here.  

Hope you enjoyed knowing a new skin care technique today. 🙂

 

 

 

 

DIY Lip Mask

Hey,

I realized that I have been writing and reviewing a lot about lip products. Isn’t it???

Adding to the series, here is a Do It Yourself lip mask. Just like face mask, I’m gonna tell you how to prepare a lip mask which has been tried and tested by me.

It is believed that plump lips are sign of good health and beauty. Most of the people even under go knife to get those perfect plumper lips. But unfortunately, not all the surgical results are positive. Most of them end up getting allergic infections and reactions. All thanks to the fillers used or the surgical procedure.

Good news is, we do have some natural remedies to get healthy lips. Even though the results are not that long lasting, it’s always better to be natural than to take so many risks. Right???

So, let’s start with this easy breezy lip mask. What we need, how to prepare, how to use… Etc…

Ingredients and benefits :

  • Coconut oil

For adding moisture to lips and also for soothing effect.

  • Cinnamon powder


Cinnamon gives tingling effect when applied on lips. This results in blood circulation in lips. Thus making lips plumper. Also, cinnamon helps in lightning lips.

  • Cinnamon oil

This is most concentrated form of cinnamon. If you want mild one, skip this.

  • Peppermint Oil

This is key ingredient in most of the lip products. It gives cooling and soothing effects. Also works best on cracked lips.

How to Prepare :

Simple. Mix one spoon of each ingredient. You can add more coconut oil if you want to. Store the mask and use it whenever you want to.

How to use:

Apply it on lips for few minutes. Either scrub it off or wash with water.

Important Points:

  • Cinnamon does cause tingling effect. This is how mask works. If you can’t tolerate that, wash your lips immediately.
  • Adding cinnamon oil makes the mask more effective and more concentrated which makes more tingling effect. So absolutely up to you to decide whether to add it or no.
  • Don’t forget to apply a good moisturizer post removing mask.
  • The effectiveness depends on individual. For some results might be quick for some it might not. For some it might last longer, for some it won’t.

Do try the mask to get those Kylie Jenner lips. 😉💋

How to Use Lipliners…!!!

Hey Pretty,

Today while applying lip liner, I thought why don’t I write a tiny post about it here, in my cute girly world ‘My GirlyPedia‘…!!!

Do you remember the ‘coloring books’ which we used to buy when we kids. Those books used to have sketches of animals, flowers, cartoons etc. Our job used to be coloring them with colors of our choice. Those were fun days. Isn’t it??? That proud moment of buying water color with more color cakes, that one separate florescent sketch pen in the kit, those crayons…pheww  Never ending childhood memories. Happy tears

using-lip-liner

I mentioned about those books because what we are going to do with lip liner and lipstick are kind of same. Lip liner, as the name suggests is used to draw lines. You draw outline on your lips inside which you will be filling color with lipstick of your choice. Sounds fun???

Most of the beautician stress on using lip liners because,they perfectly define your lips. They act like boarder and makes lipstick application easy.

75750942caf353a547c8d139c97ac64d

You must be eager to know how to apply lip liner to exaggerate one of the beautiful part of your face, ‘lips’:

  1. Like I always say, start with a clean canvas. hehe Apply concealer around and on lips. (I suggested you to apply concealer on lips as well because, concealer neutralize the lip color and hence the lip pencil’s and lipstick’s color pay off will be good. Else, your natural lip color may alter lipstick’s color and hence the result might not be up to the mark. )

  2. Take the lip liner pencil of your choice. (Make sure tip is sharp enough to draw fine lines)

  3. Draw line on your outer corner of your lower lip. (You can draw line bit outside your lips to make your lip look plump.)

  4. Do you know double curve on your upper lip,  is called ‘cupid’s bow’. (That”s because of the shape of our lips…!!!)

index

  1. In order to define the cupid’s bow beautifully, you need to draw an ‘X’ mark like this.

  2. Like mentioned for lower lip, you can draw outline outside upper lip to get plump pout.

  3. Fill in with lipstick by using a good lip brush. (Filling colors within the lines, using thin brushes is easier than the thick lipsticks right?? )

  1. Blend the lip liner and lipstick.

  2. Done. Happy dance

Refer this below image to give a plump look to your lips:

How-to-overdraw-your-lips

 

More info about lip liners:
1. There are two types of lip liners available in market. Typical pencil package one and the retractable tube package.
2. I always prefer retractable one. Because you don’t need to run for a sharpener every time to use the product effectively. Also it reduces the product wastage.

206N-2
3. Always choose lip liner of shade similar or nearer shade as that of your lipstick. This helps in blending step easy.
4. Lip liners are usually of matte finish ones. You can fill all your lips with lip liner and use it as a lipstick.
5. Do not over do the lines. It want to look gorgeous, not tedious.
6. You can also use nu*e lip liners to get illusion of plump lips.
7. Use lip brush to fill inside the lines. At lease till the time you become a pro to fill colors using lipstick.
8. I have mentioned about drawing lines outside lips to make it look plump. But make sure, you draw the corners on the natural lip corners. Do not over do at the corners.
9. Do you know, lip liners make lipstick last longer, without any touch ups…!!! You got one more good reason to use them.

You know every thing about lip liners now…!!! wink

I hope this post will be useful the next time you apply lipstick.

Till next post,

Keep Shining,
Pallavi ❤
