Review: Lipsense Plus Discount!

Standard

I don’t know if any of you guys have seen this, but several of my friends on Facebook sell Lipsense. It’s a long-wearing lip color and gloss combo. My sister swears by it, but  I wasn’t sold on it yet.

Well, she bought me the shade Aussie Rose, a beautiful golden pink. And for some reason, the center of my lips kept wearing off! I was so disappointed! Then I realized I needed the gloss. Talk about a duh moment! It really does make a difference.

I bought the Glossy Gloss, and it feels so amazing on your lips!

I’ve watched some videos and have some new tips up my sleeve, so I wanted to share my thoughts with you guys!

1: Exfoliate your lips beforehand. I use this recipe for a lip scrub, but if you aren’t in the mood to make one, there are plenty of other options. Heck, you can just brush your lips with your toothbrush if you want (do it gently!).

2: Shake it!

3: Stretch your lips wide while you apply. You’ll look silly, but your lips will look so much better!

4: They suggest 3 coats. You’d better believe I was loaded up that lip wand with product! BUT the thinner the coat, the better they layer. And trust me, if you get a couple colors, you can layer these babies into different colors! So 2 shades can give you a couple different color mixing options!

Here’s who I bought my Lipsense from. Her name is Sonya and she’s super friendly and very helpful. If you buy anything from her, mention this blog post and she’ll give you 10% off your order!!

I’m ordering a peach shade next as my birthday present to myself: shade Luv It. I’m in the pool a lot, and I want a lip color I don’t ever have to worry about. I hate being at the beach, or the waterpark with my lipstick wearing off and looking crazy.

Here are some pictures from the same day. The first two are right after I applied my makeup and I have 2 slightly different angles so you can see the sheen the gloss gives it. This color is called Beige Champagne. It’s a perfect nude for me. Pink Champagne is a similar color, but you guessed it! A pinky nude instead.

 

And this is 8 hours or so later. You can  see that it still looks fabulous. I ate with it on, had way too much coffee, ran errands, you name it, I did it! I applied more gloss twice. I never reapplied the color.

L’Oreal Colour Riche EXtraordinaire

Standard

Allure magazine sent out a survey last month, and after I took it, they sent me a lip gloss to review! Not only do I love lip gloss, but I love telling people about lip gloss!

I love summer colors, and L’Oreal’s Colour Riche Extraordinaire in 202 Coral Encore is perfect for me.

I didn’t realize until I googled it, but it’s actually more of a liquid lipstick rather than a lip gloss. Oh don’t get me wrong, it has the shimmer and shine of a gloss, but it’s not sticky or tacky, and it glides on in a single swipe.

With such a creamy texture, it really has that feel of a lipstick.

One of the things I like best is that it’s long-wearing without being a stain or an outlast (I’m not a huge fan of those). I didn’t feel like I needed a lipliner, which is nice, although it did end up on my coffee cup. BUT, even if it transfers a bit, it still looked good on, which is really what I was going for.

So final verdict is that it’s creamy but not sticky, and has the shine of a gloss, but the smooth feel of a lip stick.
