I Tried Too Faced Lip Injection's Power Pumping Lip Gloss, And It Blew My Mind
Start writing a post

As a licensed cosmetologist and lover of all things beauty, I am always on the lookout for the next big thing. I am, to the say the least, a lip gloss junkie. Trust me. When I say my purse has at least five or six tubes of gloss and at home there 's two basketball-sized bags full of more, I'm not lying. I don't use half of them anymore because I was disappointed in the quality of the product, but I have yet to throw them away because I'm like emotionally attached to them - anyone feel me?

So, out of boredom and desperation to find a product to fit my needs - I found myself in the aisles of Ulta pondering all of the possibilities. I usually like to ask one of the girls working what they like the most, but first I scoped out what I was working with. I noticed a common trend in the descriptions of the lip glosses being "juicy" and "long-lasting".

What I look for in a product is that it delivers what its selling. I had yet to find a gloss that made my lips super glossy and lasts longer than a sip from my coffee. After a few minutes of looking around, I asked an associate what the best gloss all-around. She directed me to Too Faced's Lip Injection Power Pumping Lip Glosses that came in many different shades. After staring them down and with the assistance of my boyfriend, I chose the shade "Wifey for Life." It's a warm rose nude- just the perfect shade for me.

Once I got home, I tried my newest gloss. And to say - I WAS MIND BLOWN. After a few seconds of application I began to feel the tingling, as it is also a lip plumper (this was expected). After a minute, my lips appeared fuller and more defined. They were glossier than they had ever been, and it looked like I just put on the most expensive gloss ever.

I put it to the test the next couple of days and it did not seem to rub off instantly on my coffee straw or water bottles. I did not feel the need to reapply every hour or such, as the gloss held up for a long time.

As for the price, Too Faced Lip Injection Lip Gloss costs $23. I know this is on the upper end for a gloss, but the price was definitely worth the results I received. I will definitely be buying these in more shades. I give this gloss a 5/5 star rating for punctuality on their promise to fuller, glossier lips.

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
