POP Beauty Plump Pout Swatches & Review

Press Sample/Affiliate Links

Today I have all four shades of the POP Beauty Plump Pout line to share with you – Bare Nectar, Honey Rose, Peony Petal and Fuchsia Freesia.

POP Beauty Plump PoutWhat Ulta says about POP Beauty Plump Pout:

This plumping pout perfector combines the high-shine of a lacquered gloss with the long wear of a stain and is packed full of lip-plumping peptides and avocado & jojoba oils. Lightweight, creamy texture immediately merges with lips & delivers intense glossy colour for an extremely long-lasting finish.

POP Beauty Plump Pout packagingPOP Beauty Plump Pout ingredients POP Beauty Plump Pout Liquid Lipstick Stain POP Beauty Plump Pout SwatchesPlump Pout is a Liquid Lipstick Stain. (shown L-R above)  Bare Nectar is a browned beige, Honey Rose is a mauve, Peony Petal is a rose pink and Fucshia Freesia is a bright bold pink.

The formula isn’t thick or goopy, yet is still nicely opaque when you apply with a fabulous shine.  There is a slight tingling sensation for a few minutes but it’s not horribly uncomfortable.  It stays on for several hours, leaving very light staining behind.

Fragrance-wise there is a slight scent, but it’s lovely and isn’t so strong that it should bother you unless you’re very sensitive to smells.

As far as packaging goes the oval, flat container is a little off-putting.  The first time you grab ahold of the cap to apply you’ll feel awkward, but the doe-foot applicator applies the product evenly and with ease.  This is actually excellent and convenient packaging for keeping in your pocket.

What do you think of POP Beauty Plump Pout?

POP Beauty Plump Pout retails for $16.00 and is available at Ulta.

Sultra The Bombshell™ 1.5–Inch Rod Curling Iron Photos & Review

Press Sample/Affiliate Links

Sultra has a new rod on the block!  The Bombshell™ 1.5–Inch Rod Curling Iron promises not only gorgeous, wavy perfection but also boasts an extra long cord (hallelujah!).  If you’ve ever wanted hair like a Kardashian, read on!

IMG_7553What Sephora says about the Sultra The Bombshell™ 1.5–Inch Rod Curling Iron:

What it is:
A large, round, ceramic-coated barrel with dual ceramic heaters.

What it does:
The Bombshell creates loose, flowing romantic curls and dreamy waves in half the time of a traditional clip curling iron without the “clip” lines. It locks in your look with an evenly heated ceramic rod barrel, expertly styling tresses. Revolutionary ThermaTru Technology mends the hair during the styling process with Infrared Rays and is perfect for color-treated, dry, or damaged hair.

What else you need to know:
The Bombshell includes a complimentary iron pad and styling glove. It also features universal voltage and the Sultra standard features: rapid heat-up; auto shut-off; durable, heat-resistant lightweight body; 9-ft, no-tangle swivel cord; and a two-year warranty.

meMaybe you’ve seen the pic above?  (If not then you aren’t paying enough attention to my new blog header ;) haha).  I used The Bombshell 1.5 inch Rod Curling Iron to achieve those loose, wavy strands that we all yearn for when we see the celebs looking perfectly coiffed while they’re out and about in their daily lives.

What I found with this iron is that it’s super easy to create the body and volume I am dying for while not damaging my hair and adding shine.  The waves lasted through the day and I even had a little bit left when I woke up in the morning.  It’s totally perfect for when you just want to hook up the front of your hair a bit and not look like you just rolled out of bed.  Quick, easy and (thanks to the pink glove) painless!

You do have to pay attention to the instructions and be sure to hold the curl in the palm of your hand after releasing.  This only takes a few extra seconds while it cools, but it will make all the difference in the look!

The video below provides an excellent look at how to use the Sultra The Bombshell™ 1.5–Inch Rod Curling Iron:
