I've been bleaching my upper lip since high school and am okay with the results. i've been wanting to try waxing my upper lip but i'm scared that i'll get some bad side effect and look funny for a while. any suggestions or comments?

I was exactly like you. I tried bleaching my upper lip some years back. Unfortunately, it didn't work as well for me, so I made the decision to start getting my upper lip waxed. A friend of mine suggested to get it professionally done first to make sure you get all of those nasty hairs out. It hurt like hell, but it definitely worked wonders! 

Sally Hansen Hair Remover Wax Strip Kit For The Face, $7.49 from Amazon

To save money, I have started waxing myself at home using Sally Hansen Hair Remover Wax Strip Kit for Face. The kit comes with pre-wax strips that you can easily apply to your upper lip. However, I know that some people are resistant to the Sally Hansen wax brand, so if it doesn't work for you, continue going to your favorite salon to wax. 

Don't be afraid! You won't get any bad side-effects at all. Like I said, it will be painful, but it will definitely be worth it. Beauty is pain!

How do you Lovelies take care of that annoying upper lip? Does it bother you?
