I hated putting on lipstick every day. I am on of those people who never leave the house with out my make up. I read up on permanent makeup before doing it. I had it done at a permanent makeup clinic. They have been doing permanent makeup for 7years. I am very happy. The color is perfect. They even let me draw my own out line, and they traced perfect.
As for pain it hurt pretty bad, numbing cream help some what, but my eye were definitely watering. And I had a lot of swelling. But as they say no pain no gain.
As for my lips, pain and all I would do it again gladly. It is really worth the money. I would always make surewhom ever does this to you know what they are doing. Because on your face forever.
