A little while ago there was some kind of trend for temporary lip tattoos. I think Jessie J was the first celeb spotted wearing them, but apparently Gaga and probably a few other 'quirky' characters have followed suit. Personally, I love the look, so was excited when Stargazer's lip tattoos found their way into my hands...
The transfers pop out of a card sheet, you trim them to size using guidelines on the back, peel off the plastic film, hold them to your lips, dab water over the back and hey presto - funky lip patterns! Cutting them to fit is a bit of a pain - the guidelines are pointless, I ignored them in the end! I ended up entirely re-shaping the transfers because they simply don't work with fuller lip shapes.
They felt a little odd on, but not uncomfortable and after about ten minutes I was oblivious to them entirely. Mine lasted well until I devoured a bowl of hot pasta and the edges turned all gunky. I think these would wear really, really well for parties, photoshoots, nights out etc if at no point you were eating greasy food! Lip tattoos can be easily removed with oil based cleansers or regular olive oil.
Stargazer lip tattoos are priced at £4, though I'm not sure if that's for 1 (in which case it seems steep) or the regular three you get from other brands. Available from the Stargazer site, though not currently in stock - keep an eye out!
