PMD Kiss | First Impressions Review, Demo & Discount!

This video has been sponsored by the PRIMP Network*. However all thoughts and opinions are my own and as always honest!
Hey beauty babes, thanks so much for joining me! Today, I am please to present to you my First impressions review and demo of the PMD Kiss Lip! What exactly is the PMD Kiss? Well, it's a smart anti-aging lip plumping system and treatment, that uses pulsating vacuum technology and a specially formulated serum to safely create a fuller appearance of lip volume and restore youthfulness to lips. It plumps the look of lips in just minutes, creating visible results for hours. Continued daily use boosts collagen which increases the look of fullness, fades the appearance of lip lines & wrinkles and revitalizes natural lip color! 

I am very intrigued and super excited to give this neat little tool a go and give you my thoughts! And I'll be giving you more than just my first impressions, because this will be a 2-part review! YAY! So, I will be doing an update blog post and video, sharing my results and full (complete) review after a whole month of use!

Now if you watch the video at the end of this post, I will go into my reasons for wanting to try this product, show you everything you get with the PMD Kiss System and I will even show you how it works. You will be able to see the LIVE results after my very first time using it. HOWEVER, for a close look, I also wanted to take some photos to share with you as well! And the photos are where I think you can clearly see the results and the difference, which inst as easy to catch on video.

The photos below show my lips (relaxed and with a soft smile) literally right BEFORE using the PMD Kiss, and then AFTER my first time using it!


(relaxed lips)


(soft smile)

The results, while not dramatic, are very clear! My lips definitely look more full with some of my fine lines diminished. However, the biggest difference is the color. My lips went from dull to flush with beautiful natural color! Keep in mind, my lips are completely bare in both photos, with the exception of having applied the Lip Serum in between.

So far, I am very please with the PMD Kiss Lip Plumping System. And I am excited to see what the results will be after a month of using! Follow along if you too want to see the results!!

Exclusive Discount Code: PRIMP20 for 20% off your purchase from PMD beauty! *Learn more about PRIMP (here). Check out these other reviews on the PDM Kiss:

Chocolate Brown Smokey Eye | Full Face Makeup Tutorial


Hey beauty babes, today I'm sharing a full face makeup tutorial for this Chocolate brown smokey! I'm using quite a few new (to me) products and sharing some of my thoughts on them! I also decided to skip the fake lashes and just use mascara as there have been a few requests to see looks without falsies!

Now I just wanted to mention that I am not fond of this look and I almost completely scrapped it without sharing. I am not quite sure what went wrong, because I like the eye look on its own. And I liked my face makeup just fine before I did my eyes... But the completed look is just off. Maybe its the mistake of doing my face makeup before doing a dark smokey eye and the fall out made a mess, maybe it was my bad hair day or the wrong lip color... I cant quite figure it out...

Either way I know something is off on this look and I didn't realize it until after looking back at the footage a few days later. But I decided to share look this anyways so that you can see - we all have bad days. My makeup isn't always on point and that's ok. I'm sure there are still some things to be learned from this video and I hope you enjoy regardless.
