My Lip Injection Experience

Hello lovely people!

After months and months of contemplating getting lip injections I finally put the phobia of needles aside, did some research and made it happen.
Living in Launceston, Tasmania there are not many places you are able to go and get this treatment done so I was looking at going interstate until I found out one of my favourite beauty salons Vogue at The Charles actually had a very professional and experienced Nurse Injector travel down once a month from her salon in Sydney to do non-surgical facial treatments. I was wrapped I could get it done locally! I have been to Vogue on numerous occasions for a few different treatments and I can not fault their quality of service and attention to detail.

I was pretty nervous after arriving at Vogue but after meeting my nurse Francine Ithier  (Owner of Miss Franc) my nerves had calmed a little.  She did a consultation with me and I spoke about what I wanted and what I did and didn’t like. We decided I would go for 1ml of Juverderm and she would even out my lips and give me a more plump look. After this Fran applied a numbing cream to my lips and I sat back and relaxed for around 15 minutes while the cream kicked in!

The whole process of Fran actually doing the injections lasted only around 10 mins.  As mentioned I do have a phobia of needles so I sat there with my eyes closed the whole time she was doing the injections haha. I did take one of my best friends and she held my hand the whole time!  Pain wise, you can still feel the needles its a pinch and a bit of a sting but nothing unbearable, the worst is the first couple of needles on your top lip.  I would recommend not wearing any makeup there as mine was completely ruined by the numbing cream and then by my eyes watering!

First glance in the mirror after the injections, to be completly honest, I wasn’t sure what to think. My lips looked totally different and it was a pretty big change so prepare yourself for that. I wasn’t in pain after they were done they just felt swollen and it was a little uncomfortable to eat and drink at first. The following 3 days I experienced a lot of swelling and bruising. I was able to cover all the bruising with makeup though.

 

I have attached an image of my lips during the recovery, you will be able to see all the swelling in the top image especially on my top lip this was one day after. The second image was taken the following day you can see the bruising had come out a lot more, mainly on my top lip again. The bottom image was taken 5 days after the treatment with lipstick applied, I still had slight swelling on the top lip.  I would say it took a bit over a week for all the swelling to completely go down and for the lips to settle and let you see the shape.  There was hardly any pain while the lips were recovering,  my lips just felt tight and they were a little dry so I would recommend investing in some pawpaw if you are looking at getting them done.

I am so happy with the results that Fran has achieved with my lips.  I think she had done a great job of evening them out, adding more volume and still maintaining a natural look.  I am interested to see how long the fillers last as the first time they usually go down a lot quicker and need touching up so I will keep you all updated!  I have had a couple friends of mine who have had their lips done by Fran and they all extremely happy with them also, so I would 100% recommend Fran & Vogue.  I have attached links below to both of their websites if you are wanting to do any research or know any more information.

Vogue & Miss Franc are lovely enough to offer my followers a discount if they are wanting to book in to get their lips done. All details will be on my Instagram page in the next few days so if you are interested follow me for all the details! 

Lastly below is a before and after image so you can see the difference. You will notice my top lip is a lot more fuller now! 

Thank you so much for reading.

Frank Body Original Introudction Bundle Review!Β 

Today is a public holiday in Launceston so I decided I would spend my Monday morning relaxing with Frank! I used their Original Introudction Bundle which includes: Original Coffee Scrub & the Body Balm.  The idea of this bundle is to scrub & then rub! 

 
Original Coffee Scrub 

Franks Orginal Coffee Scrub is a special blend of all natural ingredients.   Roasted & ground robusta coffee beans to stimulate blood flow targeting stretch marks, cellulite, scaring and skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.  Cold pressed almond oil which promotes skin healing while hydrating and nourishing the skin and sea salt which reduces inflammation and targets skin conditions.  As well as treating wounds, it removes dry, flaky skin!  

 
Directions:

  1. Get naked and shower.
  2. Get dirty and cover your body (I used 2 large handfuls).
  3. Get rough and massage the scrub into your body  (leave for 5-10 mins).
  4. Get clean with a rinse.

Frank coffee scrub makes your skin feel amazing and silky smooth! It gives your skin hydration and leaves you with a beautiful glow.   It is hands down my favourite coffee scrub to date and if you are a fake tan addict like myself it is perfect for tan prep! Scrub the day before you tan and you will get a perfect application!  I used 2 large handfuls of the scrub for my entire body and have plenty of product left so it is good value for money.   

  

Orginal Body Balm 

Franks Body Balm will hydrate and nourish your skin long after you have scrubbed!  It also smells delicious and spreads over your body like butter.  This body balm works really well for dry skin, stretch marks and eczema as well and can be massaged daily onto problemed areas.  

Key ingredients; Coconut Oil, Grape Seed & Almond Oil, Coffee Arabica Seed Oil & Beeswax.

This body balm is the richest and most nourishing body balm I have ever used! Please note a little goes a very long way. I applied a small amount to my entire body, the body balm may feel a little oily a first but just massage gently into your skin and you will be in love with the results. My skin literally felt as soft as a babies bottom hehe. 

  
I am obsessed with the combo of the coffee scrub & body balm and can’t wait to treat my body to another pamper time.  My skin has honestly never looked and felt this good before!  I recommend checking out the Orginal Introuduction Bundle it costs $37.95 and you will get plenty of use, so is great value for money.  As I mentioned earlier if you are a fake tan lover defiantly check out the body scrub to help prep!   

Have a great week and thank you so much for reading! 

Much love,

Maybelline Colour Tattoo Pure Pigments Review + Swatches

Maybelline are probably my favourite “Drug Store” brand, they have top quality products for an affordable amount!   Today I am reviewing their Colour Tattoo Pure Pigments; I know they have been out for a very longtime but I only just picked them up! 

I picked up the colours: Breaking Bronze, Barley Brazen and Buff & Tuff. I only paid around $5 each for them, such a bargain. Seeings as these were the first eyeshadow pigments to be added to my makeup collection I went for very wearable colours, I am a sucker for bronze and nude colours!  They have 1.5G of product, which will last you a very long time as you don’t need to apply much of the product as the colour pay off is amazing.

To apply the pigments you can use your finger or a flat shader brush; you can also apply wet for a more pigmented metallic look, perfect for a special occasion.  Maybelline claim these eyeshadow pigments last up to 24hrs; Crazy!  I can confidently say they lasted for over 12 hours on myself without being touched up and without using a primer. So huge plus for longevity πŸ™‚

I swatched the colours both dry and wet to show you the comparison.

Breaking Bronze LEFT: Applied wet with Mac Fix+  RIGHT: Applied with finger
Breaking Bronze is my favourite and you can see why! The colour payoff is unreal both dry and wet, its my new holy grail bronze eyeshadow. Definitely recommend picking this one up.

Barley Brazen LEFT: Applied wet with Mac Fix+ RIGHT: Applied with finger
Barley Brazen isn’t as pigmented when applied dry but is good for everyday wear. When applied wet the colour is completely changed, it turns into a dark taupe with gold reflects.

Buff & Tuff LEFT; Applied wet with Mac Fix+ RIGHT: Applied with finger
Buff & Tuff is so pretty!  A perfect pinky/gold champange colour, I wear this one the most out of all of the colours as its very versatile and perfect for work.

I can’t believe the quality of these pigments for the price, the texture is so creamy and they apply very evenly and can be built up for a more dramatic look.  As you can see from my swatches they are very shimmery, perfect for everyday wear and also perfect for more of a glam look.

I definitely recommend checking out these products; They are budget friendly and are top quality.  I will be investing in some more for my collection!

Thank you so much for reading don’t forget to follow for my posts and updates πŸ™‚

Becca Cosmetics + Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop Review

I am back with yet another highlighter review…  What can I say, my obsession just keeps growing.   If you are also obsessed with highlighter than you are most definitely reading the right blog hehe, make sure to subscribe!

Anyway into my review!  As you can tell by the heading I will be reviewing Becca Cosmetics and Jaclyn Hills Champagne Pop Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed (highlighter).  Jaclyn collaborated with Becca Cosmetics a few months back to create Champagne Pop.  For all of you who don’t know Jaclyn Hill; 1. What are you doing with your lives?! and 2. She is a globally known youtube beauty guru who is amazing! You need to check her out πŸ™‚


The highlighter comes in a compact case with a mirror on the inside (perfect for applying highlighter on the go), the packaging is the same as all of Becca Cosmetics shimmering Skin Perfector. As the name describes it is a champagne colour and it also has hints of gold, with a warm undertone and frosted sheen.

The highlighter is a creamy, buttery, smooth powder and applies like a dream. The colour pay off is incredible, you only need the tiniest amount and your highlighter is popin’! It’s not a highlighter for those who like their highlight subtle, as it is very bright and reflective unless you use a very light hand.  Becca Cosmetics describes the formula of highlighter as being enriched with ultrafine luminescent pearls that absorb, reflect, and refract light so your natural radiance is never lost and I 100% agree.


This is one application of the highlighter and and I am in love with the result, It makes your skin glow.

You can purchase Champagne Pop from Sephora Aus and it RRP $60. I know it is a little expensive but I promise you it is worth the price. This highlighter definitely takes the highlighting game to a whole new level… I can not get enough of this product!  I am about to purchase more of the Becca Cosmetics highlighters because I am that impressed with the quality and application of the product.
I hope you have enjoyed this post, thanks so much for reading

Much love, xxx

NARS Steven Klein One Shocking Moment Cheek Studio Palette Review!

Nars Cosmetics recently collaborated with Steven Klein and brought out a range of limited edition products, one of them being the One Shocking  Moment Studio Cheek Palette.

As soon as I seen this palette I knew I needed it in my collection!  Nars bronzers are highly raved about and the blushes looked absolutely stunning. Nars describe this product as a palette which encases seven shades to add depth, dimension and a pretty flush of colour to the face.

The palette is packed in a very sturdy case with a trendy cover and also a full size mirror on the inside which I am a huge fan of! Definitely feels and looks like a high quality product. 

The palette includes; Paloma contour kit, Laguna bronzing powder, 2 limited edition blushes in Robotic and Blashphemy, and Luster and Dolce Vita blush.

TOP L-R: Paloma Highlight, Paloma Contour, Laguna Bronzer. BOTTOM L-R: Robotic, Blashphemy, Luster, Dolce Vita.
All of the products are highly pigmented and have a great colour payoff! The Paloma contour kit works well on all skin tones and has been heavily used in my freelance MUA kit recently but make sure you apply the contour shade with a light hand and blend well! The highlight shade is matte and can be used to sharpen your contour or to set your under eye concealer. The Laguna bronzer is amazing, so blendable and the colour is very build-able as well. You are able to go for a more natural light bronzed look or a dramatic bronzed looked.  This bronzer also works great on all skin tones!

The blushes all have a slight shimmer in them so they give your skin a nice glow along with a beautiful flush of colour. I am obsessed with the limited edition shades; Robotic and Blashphemy and have been using them regularly. They give you a natural and really pretty flush of colour without being too over the top. Luster is perfect for a more neutral bronzed look as it adds minimal colour, but still gives a glowing youthful appearance.  Dolce Vita blush suits more medium skin tones as its a darker plum blush, I don’t normally reach for colours like this but was pleasantly surprised, it is perfect for a dramatic nigh time look! All the blushes apply like a dream and are so easy to work with. Also you can mix the colours together as well to create a custom blush.

Nars One Shocking Moment Palette RRP:  $100.00 AUD and I purchased mine from MECCA.  I am obsessed with this palette and cant stop using it on myself and all my clients. It is so versatile and worth every dollar, I recommend checking it out.  Perfect for beginners and perfect for MUA’s  πŸ™‚

I hope you have enjoyed this post and if you own this palette let me know your thoughts in the comments!

Much love, xxx
