Lip Blushing, is the new semi-permanent treatment to enhance your lips and wake up with picture-perfect coloring. I decided to go down to MAC and try this treatment out for myself.
What is Lip Blushing?
Similar to BB Glow, lip blushing uses a micro-needling technique to establish a semi-permanent color on your lips. Injecting this pigment creates a natural-looking tint without the daily hassle of reapplying lip color. In decades prior, lip blushing has been performed by tattoo artists, which is why it is commonly referred to as lip tattooing. However, it is now performed by estheticians all over the world. Studies have actually shown your lips are one of your most attractive features. Cue the endless amounts of lip filler, coloring, and shaping products. This minimally invasive treatment offers to transform my appearance in a naturally simple way.
So How Does it Work?
Step 1: Apply Booster, Before you can apply the lip coloring, it’s necessary to prepare your lips for the process. Lip Blushing can dry out your lips pretty quickly. The Booster serum offers intense hydration while neutralizing your lips at the same time. This is especially important so the pigment can enter into your lips balanced.
Step 2: Apply Color. Once your lips are prepped it’s time to apply your choice of color. I chose a more coral color. One of the best qualities of this at-home treatment is the ability to choose your color and even create a new blend. Unlike microneedling your face, lip blushing uses a plastic tip which enables it to be more flexible and precise.
Step 3: Aftercare. Now that the treatment is over, your lips are rehydrated with a repair cream. It’s also important to stay away from salt since it will cause the pigment to break down.
