Joyful Sunday everybody! As we speak I’ve a special sort of assessment for you for LipSense, smudge-proof and wear-proof lipstick set. My buddy Anne over at Betty’s Magnificence Bombs, despatched me LipSense in Sheer Berry and a Shiny Gloss in clear. Anne’s video of making an attempt to rub off her LipSense cracked me up (hey, I’m simply amused!) and when she was on the lookout for bloggers to check out LipSense and share with their readers, I jumped on the probability.
First impressions of packaging: This can be a minor quibble, I notice. However the packaging feels sort of low cost. These are costly lip merchandise and I suppose I anticipated a bit extra…oomph?
I really like doe-foot applicators, so this can be a win for me! I used to be fearful a bit in regards to the “sticky” issue of the shiny step as a result of I *detest* lip glosses often. As in, I keep away from just like the plague. However weirdly, this gloss isn’t sticky, simply tremendous shiny (my toddler was tremendous distracted by my shiny lips!).
Components for each Sheer Berry and the Shiny Gloss (click on to enlarge).
Anne included an instruction card for me (which I promptly misplaced as a result of children). Nevertheless it mainly says to start out with clear, dry lips. (I had exfoliated my lips previous to software, so I didn’t have any flaking of the product.) Then to swipe from nook to nook as soon as on higher & decrease lips (do NOT travel – you’ll see why if you see my up-close pictures!), then let dry for five seconds earlier than making use of the following coat.
I did discover that upon software there was an virtually tingling sensation on my lips. I’m unsure what that is because of, I do have delicate pores and skin anyway. It didn’t final lengthy – perhaps 2 seconds? – earlier than it went away.
I did discover that at the least on this colour, Sheer Berry, that the web lip swatches are correct. Sheer Berry has a golden shimmer in regular/low gentle.
In daylight, it has an virtually green-golden shimmer to it – sure it sounds bizarre but it surely seems stunning. You’ll discover although that my behavior of going again & forth with regular lipsticks bit me within the ass right here as a result of you possibly can see how patchy my software was. This isn’t a slam in opposition to the product, however extra of a “concentrate on” word from me. Subsequent time I exploit this, I’m going to attempt not to do this once more.
Put on time: I ate, I drank, I kissed my husband and this.did.not.transfer. Even hubby was impressed. I didn’t discover the product to be drying, however I did re-apply the gloss at the least 2 instances all through my day. I’ve definitely used matte lip glosses/lipsticks that have been extra drying.
I didn’t get photos of the tip of my day (sorry!). However suffice to say, they’re not kidding in regards to the put on time! After I went to take my make-up off, I attempted (on this order): child wipes, child oil, and micellar water. Although most of it was off by the tip, I nonetheless had a bit left on the middle of my decrease lip. Consider me after I say that these items ain’t going wherever!
Would I purchase this alone? Uhhh yeah, you higher imagine it. (In truth, I’m making an attempt to slender down which one I’m going to purchase subsequent!) Sure, I do know it’s costly. However if you happen to’re somebody who likes to put on lipsticks however not always re-apply, then this could be one thing you need to look into. Or if you happen to’re a mother (like me) who has a toddler in/in your face for many of the day (like me) who wish to not have lipstick transferred out of your face to your toddler’s arms to your outfits (like me), I positively suggest this.
Glosses are $20, colours are $25, and Oops Remover is $10. (You’re going to need that remover, imagine me!) You’ll be able to see all of the obtainable colours for buy over at Betty’s Magnificence Bombs. You’ll be able to be part of Anne’s fb group for upcoming releases, offers, and buy data.
