The bees in the Enchanted Garden feed this to the Queen with great reverence. It’s that precious! Their recipe inspired us to create this richly shiny gloss, to plump up your lips to their juiciest fullness and cover them with a succulent shine.

The rich, shiny gloss encourages a slow and comfortably swell, defining while pluming and bequeathing lips with the ability to store water, so a fabulous fullness is maintained over time. One of the alluringly shimmering shades, named after the bees discriminate choice of pollen-flowers, swept over lips will bequeath an amplified beauty designed to set you apart from the crowd. Our formula is as equally cherished, known only as “triple-x”, so keep the secret safe; cosmetic surgeons who were never allowed in the garden will do anything to stop this Lip Plump becoming the latest beauty buzz!This unique formula coats lips with a strong, protective film that brings light and colour, an outstanding shiny brilliance and immediately plumps. The plant-derived active Volulip is as effective as the components in lip-swelling injections and produces a rich, prolonged volume. Containing a plant Portulaca “Kiss-Me-Quick” Extract, blended with a natural Matrikine Modified Peptide Mimetic, Volulip stimulates the synthesis of hyaluronic acid. By working to increase cellular energy anti-ageing Signaline, a combination of Jojoba Wax and Olive Oil Extract, counteracts age-related changes. While the antioxidant properties of Vitamin E Acetate help protect, soothe and moisturise. Working together, film-forming agents, gelling oils and emollients make the texture very soft and fluffy without feeling sticky and give a “Light Interference” effect. Paraben and fragrance free, this high-performance XXX Lip Plump also ensures lips look super glossy and feel incredibly comfortable.

WHY I LOVE THE NEW FORMULA…

  • It has a light, sweet mint taste and scent that is not overwhelming.  It feels minty fresh on the lips!
  • The shimmer (micro-shimmer) in Heather Royal Jelly is so finely packed into the gloss, that it provides for a beautiful shine & fullness rather than a heavy sparkle
  • There are no tingling, stinging or burning sensations with this lip plumper
  • The plumping effect is subtle yet long-lasting
  • Extremely moisturizing for a lip plumping gloss, in fact my lips feel nourished and healthy after wearing XXX lip plump all day
  • It’s non-sticky and non-tacky …YAY!
  • I wouldn’t say this product is super long-lasting.  I need to reapply every so often throughout the day, but it lasts a good amount of time

In addition to the formula, I also love the new applicator.  It’s a soft and delicate brush wand that glides smoothly across the lips!

MY THOUGHTS ON THE NEW SHADES…

HEATHER ROYAL JELLY – Nude rose-beige with subtle four colors pearls for micro-shimmer (the perfect shade for a glossy nude look)  

Heather Royal Jelly is a lovely sheer nude/beige gloss with a gorgeous subtle shimmer, that provides for an overall wet effect and full flush look on the lips.  Excellent for everyday wear to give your pout a deliciously full & kissable appeal!

ACACIA ROYAL JELLY – Cream toned baby pink with a glassed finish / effect (our recommendation for naturally pretty pink lips)

In my opinion Acacia Royal Jelly is the perfect shade of pink.  It’s just such a pretty baby-doll/bubble-gum pink, that goes on with the perfect amount of sheerness to give you a flirty/girly look but also appear sexy.  There is no shimmer in Acacia Royal Jelly so it’s also great to layer under or over lipsticks.

KAPLAN MD Perfect Pout Lip 20 Mask + Lip Balm

This lip mask is amazing! I used the KAPLAN MD Perfect Pout lip 20 mask and lip balm three nights this last week as an overnight treatment. I awoke with hydrated silky smooth lips. It definitely removes fine lines, and  leaves your lips plumped up. Over time, it actually improves your lip contour with adipofill’in, a patented amino acid that naturally plumps the lip contour.  You really can feel the enzymes dissolving dead skin cells when it’s on.

The mask is very creamy and cooling. The lip balm has a sweet minty flavor that leaves a really nice glossy sheen. You can do this lip mask and put on the lip balm any time for hydration, plumping and sun protection and not just as a night treatment like I did. My lips get chapped every few weeks so this will be a life saver! The balm has SPF 20 which is great for protecting the lips from aging and getting dreaded lip wrinkles. I am all about this mask and lip balm! A++

REVIEW: Clé de Peau Beauté Intensive Brightening Mask

Space NK UK

Sheet mask, Korean beauty, cle de peau, face mask
The reason the mask comes in two parts is because apparently each side is designed to target specific areas of the face with different active ingredients. It is supposed to even out your skin tone and brighten IMMEDIATELY. I wouldn’t quite say it does this immediately, but I definitely saw results after using them every week for three weeks. I found that at $120 for 6 masks, sticking to it religiously would be the only way it is worth it to invest in these.  I have used all 6 masks and my skin does seem more even and my melasma has lightened. Melasma is a hormonal skin condition which causes some darkened patches on the face and is exacerbated by sunlight and even heat. It’s an annoying skin condition to have that never goes away, but it’s manageable with products like this and sunscreen. The main two ingredients to deliver these brightening results are Tranexamic acid and Vitamin C. My skin looks hydrated and glowing immediately afterwards. I recommend leaving it on for 20 minutes. Another added bonus, is my pores also appear smaller! If you are over 30, then these masks are great to have since we could all use a little evening out and brightening over the years.
FINAL THOUGHT:  Since Tranexamic acid inhibits Melanin production, this mask is great for people with melasma like me!

REVIEW: By Terry Ombre Blackstar Cream Eyeshadows

Blonde Opal color of By Terry’s Ombre Blackstar on Kristin

So, I recently became a big fan of cream eye shadows. This shimmery cream eye shadow stick from By Terry is my absolute favorite. I love how iridescent and pigmented it is. It brightens the eye if you blend it all the way up to the brow with a beauty blender (and not some kind of food like an egg which seems to be trending on twitter right now!).  It goes on incredibly smooth and can be used as a highlighter on the cheeks as well.  I used the ‘Blonde Opal’ color as a base and highlighter for this smokey eye look. I have the ‘Blonde Opal’ color as well as ‘Frozen Quartz’. I have to say that my favorite color between the two is ‘Frozen Quartz’. It’s definitely worth the price since it is really a 2 in 1 product, both an eye shadow AND a highlighter.
