LipSense & Garish Gal

Have you heard about this incredible LipSense Lip Gloss?? Seriously- I am ALWAYS skeptical of direct sales products, but LipSense is all that is promises and MORE! I LOVE to play around with lip glosses and I’ve tried everything from Kylie Jenner LipKits to NYX Soft Butter Mattes. I will say–NOTHING has impressed me like LipSense.

I personally don’t wear much make up, it is a rare event if I even wear eyeshadow. Lip glosses have become an easy way to add a little extra to my look without extra time. However, I would get SO self conscious every time I put them on. Is it smeared? Is it on my teeth? Does it still look okay? Ugh, I hope my date doesn’t notice my lips have come off on my wine glass. I would get SO frustrated that I would usually go to the bathroom and take it off shortly after putting it on. I also had a boyfriend that refused to kiss me if I was wearing lip gloss!

With LipSense all of those problems are fixed! Here’s everything you NEED to know about LipSense:

What is LipSense?

I recently learned that my ever present need more than life support chapstik was actually hurting my lips. Wax in the chapstik blocks your lips from naturally moisturizing themselves because it acts as a moisture barrier- thus making you dependent on chapstik. OF COURSE-DUH MAGGIE–Business 101 make the customer NEED your product. Instead, you should use products with Shea Butter in them to help your lips naturally moisturize. The LipSense Glosses are made with Shea allowing for your lip to stay hydrated so your lips won’t get that dried  out crusty looks.

Okayyyy, So How Much Does it Cost?

LipSense is super reasonable–I have spent a lot more at the Nordstrom counter, Sephora, and Ulta on less superior products. These tubes last a 4-6 months (based on daily use) and a single wear lasts anywhere from 4-18 hours (depending on how many layers you applied). Meanwhile, my KJ LipKit barely lasts an hour.

How Do I Apply it?

  1. Clean your lips and make sure they are completely dry.
  2. Shake your LipSense well before applying.
  3. With lips parted, place applicator on your lip beginning at the outside corner and apply in a fluid sweeping motion to the opposite corner of the lips. Avoid touching lips until Glossy Gloss is applied.
  4. Apply three even and thin layers, letting your color dry (10-15 seconds) in between layers.
  5. If your lips are dry, chapped, or cracked, it may tingle when applying. The Shea Butter in the gloss will help to restore moisture and tingling should subside with regular use.

How Do I Remove it?

LipSense can be removed using anything oil based (baby oil, coconut oil, etc.) a warm washcloth, Oops SeneGence Remover, and any makeup remover towelette.

What Colors Do You Recommend?

As a lip lady, I LOVE nudes, light pinks, and mauves for every day colors. Reds and Bordeaux colors are great if you are feeling a little sassy!
