I had been hearing about Lipsense for quite a while when Alex from Lipstick and Grace reached out to me, and I was so excited to give it a try. Lipsense is a long lasting lip color that doesn’t budge! Its water-proof, kiss-proof, smudge-proof and comes in over 36 shades! Much like Younique or Mary Kay, it’s sold by consultants who are happy to help you find the right match for your skin tone.
It’s perfect for Mamas because you don’t have to worry about leaving kissy marks all over those squishy cheeks and you only have to apply once a day!
Alex has a Facebook group that you can join to see all the colors available. She does videos from time to time demonstrating tips and tricks for application and showing the colors in “real life,” and she also does fun giveaways!
I had a really hard time choosing a color, so I just told her the three I liked best and she chose for me. Sometimes, you just have to trust the experts’ opinion! I ended up with a pink color called “Kiss For a Cause” and I think it’s perfect for Spring and Summer. There’s a color called Mulled Wine that I have my eye on for Fall, though!
The “Starter Collection,” which is a color, glossy gloss, and remover is the best place to start. Then, you can add other colors to your collection! Lipsense also makes a Matte Gloss, which I would love to try!
You can do as many layers as you like to achieve the color you like best. The instructions say to do three layers of color, letting each layer dry for at least 15 seconds between applications, but I have found that one or two layers of “Kiss For a Cause” looks best on me, especially for just day to day wear. Here’s an example I found on her facebook page that shows a few different colors with layers of different shades:
Because I have to be totally honest, I will say that it took me several times to get the application process downpat. It’s harder than I thought to just swipe on in the car… instead, it requires my complete attention and focus. I am thankful for the remover, though! When they say this stuff doesn’t budge, they aren’t kidding!
Because the product is in such high demand right now, the best way to shop is directly from her facebook page – that’s where she shows what is currently in stock. There are instructions for how to order pinned at the top of the page. If you have any questions, she’s happy to help you, just email her at Alex.firstname.lastname@example.org and be sure to find her on instagram: @lipstick.and.grace!
My Lipsense “Starter Collection” was gifted to me c/o Lipstick + Grace, but all opinions are my own, as always.
