Violent Lips & MakeupBee Collaboration: Part 1

So a few weeks ago I was asked by the lovely Tiomi of Makeupbee if I'd like to take part in a collaboration with Violent Lips...

...And of course I said YES!! For those of you who don't know, Violent Lips create temporary lip tattoos, and have some amazing designs. I'd been seeing them around for a while and was really interested to try them out, so thought this would be the perfect opportunity. For the collaboration I got to choose two designs then I had to create a look for each. I chose The Pink Polka and The Rainbow.

So today I'm bringing you the The Pink Polka modeled on my very beautiful friend Lyndsey...

Doesn't she look amazing!! All purdy in pink...

Love the colour and the polka dot design...

Incidently Lyndsey is also wearing Lash In The City Velour Lashes for this look too.

I think the lip tattoos are really cute and fun, and they look great...

...But I'm affraid that's all I liked about them! I was so disappointed, I really wanted to love these. I can't tell you how excited I was to receive them, but when I came to use them they just weren't doing it for me! I found them really hard to use and I had to cut them down soooo much. They ripped really easily and creased quite badly and I had to do a lot of doctoring with a lip liner. And within about 30 minutes Lyndsey looked like Mumm-Ra from the Thundercats cos her lips had stuck together!

That said, they did make for a very entertaining afternoon...although I'm not so sure if Lyndsey would agree after having to peel the lip tattoos off of her teeth haha.

I dont know, maybe I just need a bit more practice, and not one to shy away from intricate things, I wont give up!! In theory these Lip Tattoos are great. They look amazing, they're really fun and they have loads of great designs, but for the time being I'm just not sure whether or not they're my cup of tea? Stayed tuned for part two, who knows maybe I'll change my mind??

Speak soon xx
