After years of neglect I've decided to fix all my problems with injections, I'm having my first ever botox this week and have a consultation for spmu for brows, eyeliner and possibly lip blush.
I've seen some real horrors but I think I've found someone great and I like her work on friends.
Would love to hear any experiences of these so I know what to expect and if it's really worth it

Hopeful bump as my consultation is tomorrow

I had both the lip blush and eyeliner last year. Eyeliner I cant really tell a difference and probably wouldn't do it again but I still love the lip blush and would say it was definitely worth it for me. Still looks great and I don't have to worry about my lipstick rubbing off on my coffee cup or my husband, or having to re-do it throughout the day. Can still put lipstick on if I fancy a change. It did get a bit sore towards the end as the numbing cream was wearing off but not unmanageable

I have my eyebrows microbladed and it’s great, very natural looking. I find it painful though!

Oh wow I'm really surprised that the eyeliner didn't make much difference I thought that would have the most impact! Did it wear off quickly or was it just not noticeable enough to start with?
I've heard such mixed reviews about lipblush I think I need to see more after healing pics for that

I've had my lips and eyebrows tinted.
I only had my lips done a couple of weeks ago and have to go back for any top up that needs doing.
I'm happy with the results so far.

I've had SP eyeliner, top and bottom and it's a game changer. I've had it nearly 2 years and it doesn't need topping up yet, I'd say it'll be year 5.....really made a difference.

Hey, JimBob, that looks great!

I've had my eyeliner done twice now, first one lasted about 5 years, this one is a year old and still going strong. Had my eyebrows done for the first time 18 months ago and had them topped up last week. Saves so much hassle, kept toying with the idea of the lips but oddly I think 'ouch' !

That's so helpful, yours looks great Jimbob I've seen some after pics where you can barely see the difference on lips and it sounds so painful
JimBob61 · 04/10/2022 21:07
I'm not going to lie. The eyebrows were fine but lips were painful, and they swelled so much afterwards. I looked like I'd had very bad lip fillers.
The swelling went down by the next morning and I'm very pleased with the results.
