I found these interesting looking lip tattoos from our local clothing store (Seppälä), and since they were at sale I decided to give them a try. They definitely aren't for everyday use, but maybe they could work in photoshoots or similar?
Each package comes with two tattoos, so if you mess up the first, you'll have a back-up.
As far as I've understood, using these is quite identical to Violent Lips/Passion Lips/etc.
First the Champagne Sparkle:
First you pop the tattoo out of the card, and then by using scissors you cut it to the shape that is similar to your lips-:
Then you press them in place on your lips, and apply a small amount of water , so that the "tattoo" transfers to lips:
Then you peel the paper away, and tadah, you have yourself a glitter lip:
|I maay have overestimated the size of my upper lip from the sides...|
After some scrubbing and fixing the result looked like this:
At first it's smooth and nice...:
But after moving your lips (talking etc) it wrinkles and becomes dry looking:
Then the Pink Fizz:
|This time with maybe a bit better cutting...|
|Before pressing it firmly in place...|
They feel horrible on my lips. It's like I'd dipped my lips into glue. These also aren't very lasting. Theoretically they are "eating proof", but I found that they start to peel of if something (air, water, oil) gets in between the tattoo in lip.
Personally I think these are great for photoshoots, where they can be applied quickly and they don't have to last all day.
Finally one gold look (with Sugarpill Goldilux) where I used Chanpagne Sparkle lip tattoo:
