My kit includes:  Ultra Lip Desire Original Lip Gloss (30ml) , one Ultra Lip Desire Extreme Lip Gloss (30ml)  and the Lip Plumping device itself – the pump. The Lip Plumping Shop pump produces plumping  results as it draws fluid into the lips through a user-controlled vacuum pump. I will tell you all about my experience with this innovative lip plumping kit, give you the chance to win it,  but first, I invite you to read their presentation for each product:

Thie Lip Plumping Shop Pump generates an adequate amount of vacuum based suction to create Full Lips, without any pain. It is also the only lip pump is the world that has a pressure release valve to enable users to release the suction easily and to control the amount of lip plumping required.

RoC Max Wrinkle Resurfacing System: Review+ Photos+ Ingredients

The RoC Max Wrinkle Resurfacing System came in the mail for me to review. As you might noticed in my pics (on fb page etc), since I gave birth to Sarah  I don’t look like a fresh apple anymore. My skin  is showing some signs of aging, which is something I can accept and might be a challenge to work on, having the chance to discover and try lots of skin care products.  This wrinkle treatment is recommended for wrinkled, sun damaged skin and it supposed to smooth the  fine lines  up to 4 times better than a leading dermatologist procedure to boosts your skins radiance. Like  all ladies over 30 I was excited to achieve all this using a home wrinkle treatment. So, I gave it a try.

With the launch of Lippy, butter LONDON is further cementing their stake in color and broadening their product availability.

About the brand:
butter LONDON has quickly become known for their extensive color range within the nail category and they will be expanding their hold on color with the introduction of Lippy – a line of lip glosses in five shades that correspond with lacquer colors already in the butter LONDON collection.  Their 3 Free nail lacquers are create backstage at Fashion Week and have made their way from catwalk to sidewalk in record time. One of the big trends the brand saw backstage at the S/S 12 shows was a “matchy/matchy” look, not just with fingers and toes but also lips.  What was once an elegant, classic look of the past that may have seemed outdated in recent years has made a comeback in a fresh way.  The colors are bolder and the look is more deliberate, sometimes clashing with the pops of neon designers showed in their accessories this season.  See photos& product info:
