10 years of lip plumping

… and no we don’t mean the surgical kind. 

Some of Hollywood’s hottest, Halle Berry, Megan Fox and Scarlett Johansson, just to name a few have had their lips plumped to perfection by cult favourite DuWop. 

10 years ago makeup artist Cristina Bartolucci and her team set about creating a perfect bee-stung look (the kind of look you get after a huge make-out session). Eureka! The end result, a cinnamon-spiked blend of essential oils that went on to become DuWop’s breakthrough product: Lip Venom was born.

The hot little lip gloss has since went on to make makeup history, earning DuWop bragging rights for the first-ever lip plumper.

I was excited about trying this famed product after hearing heaps about it. DuWop advertises a ‘bee stung’ pout and boy do they deliver. I could instantly feel the circulation in my lips going into overdrive. (The feeling you get after a huge make-out session). Though I can imagine the intense tingling sensation is not everyones cup of tea. Lip Venom gives shine without stickiness, a five star product in my book. With a mix of reviews, this is definitely a love or hate product. I’m sure you can tell where i stand with this one.

Are you Benefit*ting?

Who said beauty had to take itself so seriously? With their laugh-out-loud, quirky themes and bright, bold packaging, Benefit cosmetics guarantee to turn that frown upside down!

So with all this talk of the impending doom and gloom I decided to try this fun, funky and frivolous brand to perk me up.

Having devoured a few products and tested them to the limit, I have come across a few that stood way ahead of the crowd.

My absolute favs our Erase Paste, a delightful creamy, blendable concealer that instantly brightens and camouflages all-in-one. (Yes, it really does work). It also includes a step-by-step lesson for all the make-up novices out there and a handy little spatula.

Gone are the days of cakey looking foundation, no longer want to look like krusty the clown? Hello Some Kinda Gorgeous Foundation Faker. It’s not only small enough to fit into your handbag for those bathroom emergencies but also cute and funky enough for you to want to whip it out and show it off.

The compact provides a light, natural coverage, giving my skin enough cover to hide a late night but still allowing me to leave the house feeling like a beauty queen. At £22.50 it is a little pricey but definitely worth the investment.

Another favourite which is steadily becoming a cult beauty essential is Her Glossiness lipgloss. This sheer, shiny gloss goes on brilliantly and doesn’t leave that unsightly sticky residue at the sides of your mouth. They come in 8 shades, with my ulitimate favs being Kiss You, a clear fuchsia, Life On The A List, a light bubble gum pink  and Who Are You Wearing? a passion fruit pink (I’m a convert)
