I am not for one second implying that Mamas cannot wear a bold lip, or anything else for that matter, but from running around like a crazy person to madly kissing your bebe’s a million times day to drinking alllll those life giving coffees…. it’s impossible to keep any type of colour on your lips let alone something bright and fun.
My gorgeous girlfriend has been raving about LipSense for a few months now, so I decided to give it a go. In the post today I am wearing LUV IT which is a gorgeous soft shimmery pinky-peach. I also have FLY GIRL a deep, rich cherry red and FIRST LOVE a matte nude-pink. I also have two top coats, GLOSSY & MATTE. The fabulous thing about the top coats is there are over 10 different types so you can wear ANY of your colours glossy, matte, shimmery, glittery…. so many variations!
I was a little hesitant to try the LipSense as I have very oily skin, which means that long wear make-up items don’t last on me at all. However I am excited to say that all my colours have lasted for a minimum of 6 hours, which included eating and drinking! I’m hooked!
STEP 1: Clean and dry lips to start with are a MUST. Shake the colour well before use.
STEP 2: Remove excess product from the wand (less is more) and apply a very thin coat to your lips. Keep your mouth open for 10-15 seconds (it will be VERY sticky) and allow to dry. Repeat for two more layers, ensuring each coat is thin, even and allowed to dry thoroughly. Leave the third and final coat to dry for a bit longer, approx. 30 seconds, and then apply your chosen top coat, I love GLOSSY.
STEP 3: Re-apply the top coat throughout the day to ensure the lips stay hydrated and the lipstick stays sealed. It’s important to use only the LipSense top coats as they have been formulated to work with the colour and won’t damage it’s longevity. Stealing a baby is optional, but highly recommended. This was approx. 3 hours after application and after eating lunch and having coffee with a girlfriend.
My verdict – I’m hooked. I love that I can have a favourite shade that not only lasts all day, but doesn’t smudge and doesn’t kiss-off. I also love that I can make it matte or glossy depending on my mood.
I bought my LipSense from Colour Me Kisses, and highly recommend Jai as the service is amazing and the speed of delivery was incredible.
What do you think? Will you give LipSense a try?
