Is Lip Blushing Worth it?


Is lip blushing worth it? In the immortal words of Sally, “Yes, yes, yes!” Putting on makeup is like taking a canvas and slowly transforming it into a work of art and self-expression. Our lips especially deserve all the time and effort we spend getting them the perfect color and shape. But with how quickly many lip products wear off, getting lasting, gorgeous lips can feel like an exhausting struggle.

With lip blushing, though, you’ll never have to worry about reapplying a caked coat of lipstick in a restaurant bathroom ever again. But is lip blushing worth it in the end?

Lip blushing is a permanent makeup technique worth getting excited over. As the name might suggest, lip blushing is a form of cosmetic tattooing which uses a gentle single needle technique to add a subtle layer of color to your lips. During your appointment with your cosmetic artist, you’ll draw shape directly onto your lips, then discuss your ideal lip color so they can customize the perfect color for your skin tone and beauty goals.

While the idea of someone coming at your lips with a needle might be an immediate deal-breaker for some, it’s not nearly as bad as you might think. Your cosmetic artist will start with a topical numbing cream and use a tiny single needle to add the pigment. Most people claim it is a 2-3 on the pain scale and the discomfort stops immediately after the treatment.

After the lip blushing procedure, your lips will be left with a soft “blush” of color, mimicking a subtle gloss or tint. For those who’d like a more vivid lip color, you can schedule additional appointments to build up a fully customized color over time, giving a more vibrant and bold lipstick look.

Lip blushing is a great way to maintain an all-natural look, and you can always put a layer of your favorite bright lipstick on for special occasions. If you’re tired of slathering makeup on your lip’s day after day, lip blushing is worth considering.

The healing process takes between five to ten days, and the lip blushing lasts for two years after you complete the touch-up at 6-12 weeks. That’s two years of time and money saved on expensive lip products and long beauty routines.

The best thing about this treatment is that it looks totally natural, giving you subtly accentuated lips perfect for any occasion. you can always apply lipstick if you want, but imagine the freedom of exercising, swimming, scuba diving, wearing a mask…all without the hassle of lipstick.


With so many factors that make lip blushing worth it, there are a few important caveats to consider. Initial lip blushing side effects are common but minor, such as post-procedure swelling and redness. Its minimal enough that you can go right back to your daily routine.

As with any tattooing procedure, there is always a chance of infection or allergic reaction, which is why proper aftercare is essential.


The nationwide cost of lip blushing is between $500-$1200 including a touchup. At DAELA Cosmetic Tattoo our prices are competitive and range between $750-$950 including the initial appointment and the touchup.  The results last for 3-5 years and save time and anguish all while your lips look fabulous. It is so worth it! We also offer an excellent refresh program, so you can re-blush as seldom as you like or as often as every 6 months.

Cherishing the face you see in the mirror is a powerful act of self-love. All it takes is one look at a lip blushing before and after photo to see the striking difference.
