A lipstick exists that really lasts all day, and I feel so blessed.
I am so excited about this lip stuff that if I was a boy, I would have the biggest boner ever erected.
I really like lip stuff.
I don't know about you, but I feel a lot more put together when I have lipstick or gloss on, even if I'm not wearing any other makeup.
My friend from high school, Dante, is a little punk and started selling this stuff on Facebook.
Now I'm addicted and can't stop buying new colors from her.
I doesn't help that she is cute, nice, and funny. She is one of those girls you really want to hate but can't since they are so cool.
I saw a demonstration similar to this:
I immediately thought, what kind of sorcery is this? I NEED IT.
So instead of buying food, diapers, and donating to charity that week I ordered lipstick..... like a good citizen.
It's called Lipsense.
Dumb name and even more horrible packaging.
A gold wand and a gold logo from late 1998?
For $25 a tube you would think the packaging would be a little more impressive. Has this company never walked into Sephora and seen how beautiful lipstick can be?
But since the product is amazing, I will excuse the tacky packaging.
Lipsense stays on ALL DAY and it's magical.
It's water-proof, smudge-proof, feather-proof, and kiss-proof.
My husband and 2 sons love that I don't leave lizard shaped kiss-prints on their faces anymore.
It's also vomit-proof, drool-proof, and baby-hitting-you-in-the-face-proof.
I may know from experience.
But there are some things you should know before buying Lipsense:
- You HAVE to watch the tutorials before you put it on. This lip stuff is not normal, and it won't work if you just throw it on like usual lipstick. Try this one and here.
- The first time you put on, it stings ("tingles" is what the website says, but I prefer to save this adjective for when I'm blogging about my husband) for a few seconds right when you apply it, but it's not a big deal.
- When you first start using it, your lips might self-exfoliate or peel. Mine didn't peel, but they did get all dry/wrinkly for a few days.
But let's think about how absurd this is for a moment.
Years of wax build up? On my lips?
It's more likely that your lips are adjusting to the Lipsense formula and drying out since the first ingredient listed is Alcohol Denat. aka Denatured Alcohol.
Either way, this lipstick is still freaking amazing and I'm obsessed..... even if I suspect they lie about wax build-up.
- You can buy a bunch of different lipsticks and layer them to create custom colors and it's awesome. You can even find dupes for MAC lipstick colors online.
- When you order, DO NOT go to the Lipsense website to preview colors.
- You are only supposed to use Lipsense Brand lip gloss over the lip color.
I usually do whatever I want, so I rebel and only use the gloss when I have the color on.
And guess what? I still feel ok about myself.
Just make sure when you aren't wearing the color, the lip stuff you use is moisturizing and contains ingredients like shea butter or jojoba oil.
Any gloss or chapstick with mint in it jacked up the Lipsense colors pretty bad.
Lip Smackers also messes it up.
Ultimately, the Lipsense gloss works the best and it's nice to have some around, but it's ok if you don't use it all the time.
(They do have a matte gloss that I want to try and I'm pissed off because it's sold out right now. #1stworldproblems)
- Only use the Oops! Remover for little mistakes you make while applying your color.
Using it at the to remove all of the lipstick takes forever, wastes product, and is a pain in the face. It also costs $10. Use a washcloth and Neutrogena Facial Cleansing Bar.
BTW, the Remover comes in the starter kit for really cheap so if you get that, it's enough to last you for a loooonnnnggg time.
- Lipsense lasts a whole lot longer than regular lipstick since you are only applying it once a day.
Less product used = Less money spent on lipstick.
Then you can buy more Lipsense.
- I especially like that it smells medicinal. There is no way my kids
are going to eat this stuff, which means I automatically just saved a
ton of money and anger.
- Lipsense dries fast and has no taste.
AND how can you resist supporting a company that rewards it's sassy adult sales team with tiaras, sashes, and a throne?
I know I can't resist!
I am going back and forth on whether I want to sell it or not.
Mostly I want to sell it because I want the distributor discount.
But I am also too straight forward about the gloss and remover so I don't know if it would be worth it since I'd be talking people out of buying product.
Ugh. But I really want that discount.
.....And a sassy sales team tiara.
Just kidding, I already have a tiara from the party supply store.
But until then, if you want to buy any, you can go on their 1990's looking website and find a distributor near you or let me know and I will get Dante your info, she can ship anywhere and is really fast and prompt.
If I end up selling it, I will let you guys know and I could hook you guys up with some sort of deal.
Because what is better than everything-proof lipstick?
Getting a discount.
Ugh, this stuff is too awesome not to buy a ton of it.
So I gave in and signed up as a distributor.
Check out my lame Facebook group page and I'll add you as a member. You can also comment or email me with questions and/or orders.
I ship anywhere in the U.S. and provide tracking numbers.
I'll hook you up with the starter kit for $50 instead of $55 if you mention that you read my blog or admit to laughing when small children say the "F" word.
Look at the lame video I had to make for the facebook page:
Don't judge me, jerks.
Even if you don't buy it from me, you have to try this stuff if you wear lipstick.
I apologize in advance for introducing you to this. It's addicting.
