My thoughts on LipVoltage

Hey everyone!

So I've heard a lot about lipvoltage over the past few weeks and a girl on my Instagram posted a picture of her lips after using lipvoltage and I needed to know more about it! 
I went straight on DreamWeave's website and it was sold out so I was on a mission to find it! I started looking at it online and I only found a few posts and 1 video of it so I kept looking and after about a week I finally found it online and brought the LipVoltage and 2 Mascaras (posts to follow on them). 

Lipvoltage
When it came I was so excited and I needed to try it right there and then! I'd heard some amazing reviews and seen so many people rave about it I knew that if I didn't try it I knew I'd miss out! 



The packaging comes in 2 separate boxes, the taller one on the left is the clear gloss that you apply to your lips and the smaller box on the right is the actual plumper or 'voltage'. You put either 1,2 or 3 drops of the plumper into the clear gloss depending on how big or drastic you want results. To start with I only put 1 drop in to feel what it was like and to see how it worked, I wasn't expected to see that much of a change with only one drop but I really did and was actually surprised!

After



When I applied the gloss I felt a tingling straight away and knew it wasn't going to be a nice feeling. Now I've heard a few people say the pain is unbearable and it feels 'like their lips are burning off' bit my personal view is that it is totally bareable and I found it to be quite an addictive pain (call me weird) but I enjoyed it! The tingling lasts for about 15/20 mins and slowly fades out leaving your lips plumed and looking great! It does leave your lips a little red but it does go down after a while! I was so shocked at the results that I've added another drop to the gloss (taking the amount to 2 drops) so I'll see how it goes! 

All in all, I absolutely love this product! It leaves you looking and feeling great, it's great for everyday use or just for a night out and for that little extra plump! ;)

Hope you all enjoy and if any of your try it let me know how you find it! :)

Since January I've shaken up my diet and excerise programme and I'm loving the results and transformation! (A post about all this will be up soon!)

- 85% cocoa chocolate 
- pomegranate seeds
- 2 bowls, one smaller than the other
- ice cube tray

How to make:

- take your 85% chocolate, (the higher percentage of cocoa the healthier it is for you) break into small pieces and place in smaller bowl.



- fill up the larger bowl with boiling water and place the chocolate bowl onto of the water, letting the chocolate melt slowly.




- while the chocolate is melting, place a few pomegranate seeds into the ice cube trays and fill up depending on how sweet you want them.

Hope you all enjoy! If you ever try it let me know what you think of it and your adaptations!

MAC Review and Haul

Hi guys! 

Ok so I've been gone a while, but while I've been gone I've had a totally revamp of my blog by the lovely Amy! (Check out her blog and amazing designs here!)
So while my blog has been changed and looks totally fresh now I took the chance to visit MAC, I mean why wouldn't I! I didn't really go for anything specific but I ended up with a lipstick and a gloss! I've been looking for a few nude/brown shade of lipstick for a while and I did find a few but I've found the holy grail of browns and I'm in LOVE! 



Matt lipstick-Velvet Teddy




I brought this lipstick not really knowing much about MAC lipsticks so I thought I would start out with something not too daring so decided to start with 'velvet teddy'. It's a Matt nude/brown shade which I've been looking at for a while and decided it was time to buy- and I'm so glad I did! I've been obsessed with this lipstick since the day I took it home! It's perfect for everyday use you can put it on with any makeup look and great for topping up throughout the day! It's a gorgeous texture on your lips, glides on and lasts for about an hour and a half even while I'm busy at work! 
If anyone's looking for a perfect nude lipstick then you have to try velvet teddy!




Lustregloss- Morning glory






Im not going to lie, I brought this lipstick just on impluse, not really thinking much about it, I saw the pink shade and thought it was super pretty so I brought it! I didn't really like much of it but when I put it on I fell in love! It's a lovely subtle shade that gives a lasting impression and I got compliments on it throughout the day! If your looking for something pretty for a spring glam then this is it! :)





I'm always looking for new lip products to try so leave a comment and let me know what your favourite is and what you recommend so I can try! Hope you all liked this post!
