All about lip fillers

Lip fillers seem to be the talk of the town these days, with even Kylie Jenner finally owning up to the fact that she gets them. I know a lot of people have questions about them, after seeing heaps of posts and comments online, so today’s post is all about lips! My sister Raquel has been getting Juvederm lip fillers for the last few years, so I thought I’d ask her some questions about them. I also have a lower cost, and less invasive method of plumping up your lips to share with you. Please note that neither of us are medical practitioners, and we recommend you consult with an appropriately qualified person regarding any procedure such as lip fillers.

My most important beauty products

Today my friend Laura from Laura Loves Beauty Blog and I are sharing our five most important beauty products – our absolute favourites that we just couldn’t be without. It was really hard for me to narrow this down, but I eventually managed to get it done, and here they all are. Keep reading to find out why these products are my favourites.

Maybelline Baby Lips Electro Pop

Maybelline New York have added some new products to the much beloved Baby Lips family with a range of Electro pop lip balms and these have reached New Zealand shores. The new balms are Oh! Orange, Berry Bomb and Pink Shock and they all have delicious fruity scents – Orange, Berry and Watermelon. To my great excitement, I have been sent Oh! Orange and Berry Bomb and here they are:

What’s in my bag

I have to admit, I’m a bit of a nosy person. It’s not a very good habit, so I try to refrain from doing it most of the time. One thing I love on blogs or youtube videos is when people show us what’s in their bag. It’s like I’m being nosy, but they’re actually showing me! So, I’ve decided to show you all what lives in my bag. I’ll focus mainly on the beauty products but I’ll show you the rest of what I haul around with me too. To start off with, here is the bag itself. I got it in the Boxing Day sales last year, and it’s great. Big enough to carry what I need, but not so big that I make it ridiculously heavy. Here is everything that’s in my bag, and it shows pretty much everything that I usually carry. Not shown are my glasses because they were on my face, or my work phone because I don’t carry it in the weekend. I have other things from time to time, like my Kindle, or something I’m knitting, but this stuff is mainly the essentials. I have my gorgeous wallet from Collette, another Boxing Day […]

Lip Product Addict Tag

My friend Jordy tagged me to do this Lip Product Addict tag in her latest youtube video. She also blogs and you should definitely check her site out – A Little Pinch Of Wonder. After you’ve finished reading this post of course! This tag is for lip product addicts, and I certainly am one, as you can see by this picture. I probably have more tucked away in drawers and in handbags too, but this is the bulk of my collection. 1. Favorite balm/treatment? Burt’s Bees Nourishing Lip Balm with Mango Butter.  This is the lip balm that gets the honour of living in my handbag, as you might be able to tell from the fact that the label is completely rubbed off.         2. Best eye-catching red? Revlon Super Lustrous Creme Fifth Avenue Red. I got it through a reddit exchange as mentioned in this post, and I am so delighted with it. It’s just a really classic red, which makes sense as it’s from the 1950s. 3. Best luxury & best drugstore? The closest I have to a luxury brand is NARS Velvet Gloss lip pencil – the shade is New Lover. They sell for […]
