International Kissing Day Lip Prep!

2 min read

It’s International Kissing Day tomorrow – did you know? So, if you fancy smooching/snogging/necking/tashing on, then you better make sure you’ve done some lip prep – an there are loads of ideas and offers on 5pm Spa & Beauty.

Also, you need to make sure you have your favourite lipstick at the ready to reapply once the deed is done! I was gutted this week when I found out that Smashbox had, it would appear, discontinued my favourite Always On Liquid Lipstick shade, Bang Bang. Not good!


Stand out in the #snow with a red lip! ❄💄. I ❤ red lipstick. I currently have these on rotation. Top is from George @ Asda – Red Carpet liquid matte. It’s brilliant. It smells very sweet but the colour is fab, it isn’t drying and it lasts. And it’s only £3.50. Buy this! Thank you Asda. My absolute fave of last year was Smashbox Always On in Bang Bang. Cannot praise this enough. It’s a brilliant product and I love this colour. Third up is Diego Dalla Palma Mattissimo in Absolute Red. Lovely colour, not drying but does transfer to cups, glasses, etc. What’s your favourite red lip? 💄 👄❤💋 . . . #beauty #beaute #redlipstick #redlips #red #mattissimo #deigodallapalma #smashbox #asdabeauty #lipsticks #lovelippy #bbloggers #beautyblogger #beautywriter #beautyjournalist #makeupaddict #retrored #merlesbeautyworld #thisismerlesworld

So, let’s start with those lips. I’m not one for fillers, but it seems as common as lipstick these days. if you want fillers, then The Peppermint Group in Glasgow’s city centre has two Dermal Lip Filler offers on 5pm. You can choose either Juvederm Smile Lip filler 0.55ml for £190, or Restylane Kysse Lip Filler 1ml for £290, Thursday and Friday.

There’s no point in having your lips prepped and ready if your top lip is sporting a bit of a moustache, right? So, get along to USA Nails + Beauty in Finnieston and get that sorted with an Upper Lip Wax or Thread for just £3.

Make sure your teeth are clean whenever you kiss, but even better make sure they are sparkling and white. Dentistry on the Square in Glasgow’s Southside has an offer on a Vivid White Home Whitening Kit. You visit the salon, get the moulds done, go back in a week and pick up your kit, all for £169, instead of £299.



Finally, don’t neglect the rest of your face just because the lips are in action! Tret yourself and get a Full Face Makeup at Flawless by Danielle in Glasgow’s East End for £30, Friday or Saturday.


All prepped, time to couple up and pucker up!
