There are multiple benefits to lip blushing, but here are some of our favorites: 

  • You’ll get the lips of your dreams – You’ll get perfectly shaped and tinted lips. Your lips will look more symmetrical, more defined, fuller, and beautifully tinted. 
  • Enjoy smudge-proof color – The pigment is tattooed into the skin, which means no more smudged lipstick for several years! It doesn’t get better than that. 
  • You’ll save time & money on lip products – No more pricey lipsticks and lip liners that have to be re-applied all day long.

2- How Does Lip Blushing Compare to Fillers?

It’s important to understand that the only similarity between Lip Blushing and Fillers is that they are intended to create volume – but the results are wildly different. Fillers are done by injecting Hyaluronic Acid into the skin to actually plump and firm the lips. Lip Blushing uses tint to color and shape the lip – which creates the illusion of fullness. Lip Blushing will last significantly longer than fillers and includes the change in color to your lips.

3- How Long Does it Last?

Results will vary from person to person, but for most people the results will last up to 2 years. The results from lip blushing can be extended with regular maintenance. But most people don’t want their color to last more than 2 years. Why? Trends and tastes change! The semi-permanent results allow you to change the color to match your preference or changes in beauty trends.
