Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to say thank you to the readers of Fashion Flash, the group of over 40 bloggers who I teamed up with in 2016, as a way to share a variety of lifestyle-oriented posts with the readers of my blog that go beyond the mostly beauty focussed posts that I write. I hope you’ve been enjoying fashion, fitness, travel, health and wellness, career as well as beauty posts from the other beauty bloggers, all in one easy to digest online mini-mag.
Fashion Flash is partnering with a variety of manufacturers and retailers to offer giveaways to you, the readers of Fashion Flash, as a way to say thank you for your support. My giveaway is the last one in our Valentine’s giveaway series.
Each of us bloggers received a different gift, one for us to try out so we can tell you about it, as well as one to give away to a lucky reader.
I was sent the Luscious Lips Lip Plumper Kit by Cynthia Rowland who is a major proponent of facial exercise.
Luscious Lips is a kit that includes a mechanical lip plumper and a rich lip balm to keep lips moisturized and healthy.
To be honest, when I was told I was to receive Luscious Lips, I thought I was being sent some new lipsticks. Imagine my surprise when I opened the box and saw an intriguing mechanical device and a pot of rich lip balm! Now, I have decent size lips: not too skinny, not too big, medium size lips. Skeptic though I am, I thought what the heck, who wouldn’t want to have plumper, juicier looking lips?
Luscious Lips doesn’t make a permanent change in the size of your lips but a temporary change. It promises to increase the size of your lips by up to 50% larger than your regular size for about 2 hours, probably long enough for a dinner out or a movie. And your lips don’t instantly deflate, they return to their normal state gradually.
Here’s a before and after set of photos from the website:
That’s a very significant difference. I’ll be satisfied with half that!
How To Use Luscious Lips
So I took the device out of the box and read the instructions carefully. The lip plumper is well-made from heavy plastic and has an interior plastic plug that helps create suction. You place the curved piece over your mouth (I turn the smaller side up because I have a smaller face and mouth). When you pull the outer sleeve away from you, it creates a vacuum that pulls your lips forward into a tunnel in the device. You hold it in that position for a certain number of seconds and then release. Breathe. And then repeat. It’s easy to operate, and it doesn’t hurt. For more info on Luscious Lips, check out Cynthia Rowland’s website.
The directions are quite specific and you must follow them. You start out with a two week build-up stage in which you pull and hold the sleeve for 2 seconds, 5 times a day. I am still on that phase and have about a week to go before I can increase the length of time I use the suction. Supposedly, you don’t see a result until after the initial two weeks. Nevertheless, I swear my lips look a little more plumped after I use it.
The Luscious Lips kit also comes with a big pot of lip balm that is very creamy and very nice. It’ll help your newly big lips feel soft and kissable!
