Hi everyone! welcome back! Sorry I have been so MIA this last month, (I know I always say this) but I appreciate you guys coming to my site even when I disappear for a while. Things just get crazy in my life, especially now because, if you don’t follow me on instagram, I posted a photo talking about some cool life updates, well…. I HAVE A FULL TIME JOB! my first ever. I’ve always worked little part-time jobs, so this is new to me! and obviously takes up a lot of my time hah! but I am in the process of figuring out how to balance the two, and I reallllyyy appreciate those of you who stick around. I love you guys!
Anywhoo, today I have a super cool and exciting post! so enough about me, let’s do this.
I’m sure the majority of you have heard of the product Lipsense: the two-step, long-lasting lipstick kit. I had seen a few little things about it here and there, I became friends with a woman Nichole who is a distributor and she kind of changed my life – not going to lie hah! We talked about the different colors and everything, so I got interested. I did what any make up snob would do; I did my research and I went to Pinterest and I was AMAZED at all the different shades there were. I was like holy cow fam, sign me up — so many gorgeous nudes, browns, mauves, berries — I was like this is incredible. So as you all can guess I now am a fan of these.
I want to give Nichole a huge shout out for giving me the opportunity to try this lipstick out. and for kindly gifting it to me. You were right; ( I was skeptical at first) these are kind of the bomb.com. If you want to try these crazy lip products you can find Nichole on instagram and her facebook group! She posts about all the upcoming colors, shows you how well the lipstick stays, gives little tips and tricks on how to use the product — she’s kind of on top of it. She will help you decide to give these a try! You can find her @choleslipsense on Instagram and on Choles Everlasting Lips on Facebook! These lipsticks are worth it, trust me. Oooh side note if you want to try these magic lipsticks out, I have a code for 10% off the code is: BEYOUTIFUL10.
Now let’s review shall we? Oh man I don’t even know where to start with this. One thing that turned me on to these was the formula of this product. It has a very similar formula a to liquid lipstick. Disclaimer: This is NOT a liquid lipstick or lipstain. It is a molecular bond to your lips (it’s scary sounding, but absolutely amazing) This formula reminds me a lot of the Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks by Kat Von D. The product glides over your lips very smoothly and has a very thin base. Unlike the Kat Von D formula, Lipsense is not as dense or moussy feeling but much more wet and soupy. ( I know that sounds kind of gross haha!) Personally I think I like the more liquid formula; it makes for an easier application!
How you apply the lipstick is by applying 3 even coats to reach maximum color pay off, and longer lasting affect. Once you apply the first layer, let it dry for 3-5 seconds than apply the second coat and repeat. Once you have applied the three layers, you can either add the Glossy Gloss or just leave it matte. I have never been much of a gloss fan, but I am SUPER impressed with the formula of this gloss. It’s not sticky or heavy feeling, it just adds a nice amount of moisture without feeling thick or goopy on your lips! So yaaas, sign me up!
This product does. not. budge. I am a religious coffee drinker, I also eat a lot. Soo through drinking coffee, salad dressing, snacks here and there, I did not have to touch up my lipstick. I could wear it from when I put it on at 7 am to when I got off work, went to the gym, ate dinner, than had to physically take it off. So yeah I would say the claim that they are long lasting is more than accurate lol. Now obviously if you smeared butter on your lips I don’t think it would last as long, the oil would break it up, but I don’t plan on eating a stick of butter for dinner so I think we are okay, hah! My boyfriend also likes it because I don’t get lipstick all over him; so kiss away ladies! no worries, this lipstick’s got yo back. 😉
I LOVE the color pay off of this stuff! it is crazy pigmented. When I first got my package in the mail I did what every make up fanatic does: I swatched it on my hand. And I was shocked with how dark and opaque this lipstick was. I was amazed and decided I could roll with this. I couldn’t wait till the next morning to try it on; I had to try it on that night. (I have no self control, I’m aware of this) I fell in LOVE! The color I chose was called First Love. It is the perfect neutral mauvey pink shade. eeek I love it! If you guys know what Lolita looks like, and you follow my blog, you know I am kind of obsessed with that shade. Well this first love color on me is like the lighter version of Lolita — it is ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! I can’t wait to get more shades and create unique color combinations!
It’s nourishing on your lips. You all are going to hate me when I say this stuff will let you know if your lips are dry — its going to BURN. I had no idea what I was going to expect trying this stuff on. I really wasn’t expecting my lips to be on fire that’s for sure. That was definitely a wake-up call for me to start using some lip masks or something. Holy canoli. Now before I scare you, this is supposed to happen. I’m sure you all are familiar with the lip balm Burts Bees. Well, it’s similar to that. It burns but we use it anyways, and after a while when your lips are properly moisturized you don’t notice the burning sensation as much. Well, it’s the same with these lipsticks. The first few days you wear it you are going to wonder “WHY DID I GET THIS, my lips are literally on fire and this is so painful?” I get it, I was there, but I promise you, once you apply the Glossy gloss you won’t even notice it! I promise! Beauty is pain ladies; we’ve known that for decades!
Now here is the moment you all are waiting for. I know I have convinced you to give these a try and now your wondering but Cari these sound amazing, how much are they? well the lipsticks are $25.00 and the Gloss is $20.00 I understand it is a little expensive. But Nichole has so kindly offered a 10% discount to your order if you use the code:BEYOUTIFUL10. Another way to justify this is by looking at Sephora or Ulta and realizing it is about the exact same price as a Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick, or Anastasia Beverly Hills, and LipSence offers a wider variety of colors, a longer lasting formula, and contains all natural ingredients! I recommend you try these once, and than you can decide if it’s your new bae, or no way!
So, what exactly is LipSense?
The premier product for SeneGence®, LipSense is a patented, amazing departure from conventional lipsticks and lip colors. LipSense is versatile in that you can mix shades to create a number of effects.
- Unique product is waterproof and does not kiss off, smear off, rub off, or budge off!
- Does not dry out your lips – it works to restore the moisture content
- Color lasts anywhere between 4 and 18 hours
I stole this info off the lipsense website haha! But the facts stand true. I wanted to give my review first, than attached the product description at the bottom to prove to you guys that I’m not exaggerating the claims this product has. LipSense lives up to its name. It truly is, waterproof, kiss proof, smear proof, rub proof, and budge proof! It does moisurize your lips, even though it burns like the dickens for a little bit, while restoring the moisture your lips need. The color will last up to anywhere between 4 to 18 hours. I now know that and believe that!
I hope you enjoyed this review, I know I had a blast writing it! Thank you again to Nichole for letting me try this product! Let me know in the comments below if you have ever tried Lipsense or are interested in trying it! I truly believe you will love it!
Until next time Loves!
