I didn't want my blog to be just beauty focussed, I want to talk about anything/everything, and I know when I was considering getting my nipple pierced I did try to research it slightly although it was full of YouTube videos, which I found daunting, so if this helps anyone then win win.
I had my nipple pierced roughly around 2 years ago, to me piercings are no biggie, I often have piercings that I wear for few months then take out and then get redone and so on and so on. I first contemplated nipple piercings when I saw that a local piercing place to me was offering them half price, being £15. I have a pretty decent pain threshold, I have had my nose done, my lobes, my cartilage in my ears numerous times and my tragus prior to my nipple being done.
After the YouTube videos I was nervous due to the pain they felt and people fainting and so I got psyched up and took a nurofen express half an hour before the piercing, I cant say whether this helps, but I doubt it.
When it got down to the piercing, the lady did spray it with a freezing spray, this does help with some pain but it was more to make it easier for her to pierce, by freezing the nipple it becomes erect and compact for longer making it easier to pierce. the needle went through, and when she tried to slide it out the plastic tube dropped and I had to have it re-pierced again, I chose to have a silver bar as I felt like the bars looked prettier, especially in my head when I paired it with a lace bra.
All in all my tragus piercing was worse, but with my decent pain threshold and it may be a little TMI but my nipples weren't that sensitive prior to the piercing so that may be a factor in it. It bled a little but she had bandaged it up straight after anyway. In terms of maintenance it easily one of the easiest piercings I've had.
I've always appreciated Sleek for its affordability and good quality products, however I had recently neglected the Sleek stands, I think it was just because none of the products interested me as I felt like I had tried it all.
I popped into boots the other day as I wanted to pick up a few things from NYX, and lone behold I saw this, I believe this is a newly released product. I keep seeing all this "clown techniques" on Instagram, and well, I'm curious!
The palette holds six coloured concealers;
• Green: Neutralises redness – ideal for concealing scars and blemishes.• Lilac: Neutralises yellow – ideal for brightening sallow, dull complexions.
• Blue: Neutralises orange – ideal for neutralising freckles and hyperpigmentation.
• Rose: Adds radiance and brightens dark spots.
• Yellow: Neutralises purple – ideal for concealing veins and dark circles
• Orange: Neutralises blue – ideal for concealing dark circles on medium skin tones.
each concealer is of a creamy consistency and isn't as daunting as it looks, the colour payoff is a good strength without being overly strong, I was worried about my BB cream fading throughout the day and my face ending up like josephs technicolour dream coat, but no issues.
I am not a fan of silicone based primers, it feels weird when I rub it into my dry skin, like I'm blocking air , and moisture from my face. This primer water is free of silicone, oil and alcohol, and can be used before makeup, after to set, or during the day to refresh. It absorbs quickly and leaves your skin feeling soft, and moisturized while also adding a slight dewey look after makeup application.
Does anyone else get the makeup slump at around 3pm and touch up their patchy foundation or is that just me? well instead of spreading more on, I find by giving this a spray and just using my foundation re-blend all my base and it returns back to how it looked at 9am.In summer this is a beauty when its hot, wack it in the fridge let it cool and give yourself a nice cool spray down.
