There’s been a lot of makeup being reviewed behind the scenes these last couple weeks and a lot of brands that I have never tried before. Two of which come from the same place. I’ve tried a lot of lip plumpers over the years, not because I actually want bigger lips, as I’ll just draw them on, but simply to see if they actually work. I was quite blown away with The Powerhouse Lip Voltage press release and couldn’t wait to try it out. I’m a big baby, so I won’t pretend it doesn’t burn my lips, but for most, it’s just the normal sensation of a lip plumper.
The Powerhouse Lip Voltage contains three lip plumping ingredients, two of a French formulation and one Spanish. It’s the first of its kind in the world, so they claim, but they also claim there’s no pain so I can’t really vouch for that either. It’s rather hydrating and nourishing on the lips which makes it perfect before lipstick. I have a smaller lip top lip than I do bottom, so I only use it there rather than continuing to make my lips look uneven. At £25 it provides crazy results, in the sense that, your lip literally doubles. Thankfully, evenly and it doesn’t take long either. I’d definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to boost their lips without surgery, even if you just want to use it on special occasions when going out.
Unfortunately, as soon as I went to apply this and take a photo, I came up with a cold sore and had to put it down. As I’ve only just got over the cold sore and I actually have a scar (you can imagine how impressed I am other that), I haven’t photographed a before and after. However, as regular readers all know, I am painfully blunt and there’s no chance I would have wrote this mainly words on a rubbish product. So this time, you will literally have to take my words for it.
I also got to try out DreamWeave Lash Construct which is a treatment mascara. It’s not really a mascara that you can build up, but you’re not meant to be able to as it contains a system called ‘WIDE LASH’™which in 15 days is meant to nourish and thicken your lashes. It gives a very lightweight effect and eyelashes are very soft and flexible. It doesn’t clump as it spreads your eyelashes evenly and you definitely don’t end up with panda eyes. I think this mascara would be better suited for use around the house or on lazy days, as it’s definitely not a mascara to use if your eyes are your main feature and you like them bold and thick. You’re actually meant to use it at night, but my eyes often leak when I’m laid on my side, so I would definitely look like a panda.
If you want to grow your eyelashes, it’s actually only £14.00 which is by far one of the cheapest lash thickening and growing treatments I have ever found and used.
