I was contacted in November to do a review on Lip Sense which you can read here.  Since then I have learned some tips and tricks that have made me love lip sense even more!  The above picture was taken at 9:00 am before a busy day.

 

  1.  Make sure you lips are clean!  When I brush my teeth in the morning I make sure to run my toothbrush over my lips to help exfoliate.  Then before I apply my lip color I use the oops remover to make sure they are clear of any residue.
  2. Shake your lip sense.
  3. Apply to entire lip when applying.  I tend to have wearing on the inside of my lip first.
  4. Do not use too much product.  I had flaking when I first started using due to applying to much. Thin coats are the key!
  5. Keep applying the lip gloss throughout the day.  This helps to keep the color lasting longer.
  6. If the inside of my lips start to fade I add 1-2 layers just in that area.

If you are interested in trying lip sense contact @xoxolipstickjunkie on instagram or on Facebook.  Thank you for giving me the chance to try party pink! It has made me step outside of my comfort zone.  It is such a great color for spring and summer!

Taken at 11:00 am after a trip to the grocery, and brunch at my moms.

Last picture was taken on the way home from the second baseball practice at 4:45.  The lip color still looked great after being in the sun all day!  Senegence has condensed its color selection to the top 36 colors to make to help better keep up with demand.  Below are the current colors that are available!

 

YSL Vinyl Cream Lip Stain Review

I have never been one to wear lipstick.  It would not last, and I could never find the right color.  Recently, I have been stepping out of my comfort zone with make-up and trying new items.  Influenster has been a huge factor in this change since I have received so many great items to review.

I recently received the Yves St. Laurent Vinyl Cream Lip Stain to review.  This product is available at Sephora.  When I first saw the color I was a little scared.  It was bright, and not in my normal neutral color palette.  Once I applied this lip color, I realized how gorgeous  it was!  The texture was smooth and not sticky.  It also stayed much longer than most other lipsticks I have tried.

I decided to put this lip stain to the test today.  I applied the lip color at 8:45 am before church.  After applying I finished my cup of coffee and then took my first snapshot.

At 10:45, 2 hours after applying, it still looked great!  I snapped this picture in the car after church!  Still bright and shiny.  I think the people walking past my car was wondering what in the world I was doing!

After church, I stopped by to help my sister-in-law with putting some outfits together.  I got home at 12:45.  Another 2 hours later and the shine was gone, but the color was still going.  I was really excited that after 4 hours that I still had so much color!

After lunch, at around 1:45 the color had finally faded.  The color had lasted roughly 5 hours!  This was pretty impressive by my standards. This is definitely one of the most long-lasting,  lipsticks I have ever used!
