LipSense: Does It Really Last All Day?

I have seen LipSense all over Instagram throughout the past year, but I never paid close attention to it.  LipSense a long-lasting lip color made by SeneGence, which claims the color can last up to 18 hours.  They say that it’s smudge-proof, water-proof…pretty much everything-proof.  How many of you have had a lip color that you didn’t have to reapply all day?!  I know I never had an iron clad lip color (although I tend to go for balms and glosses, whose shades don’t usually have strong staying power).  So I put LipSense to the test:  Does it really last all day?  Is it a legitimate long-lasting lip color?? read more

Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Collection

It’s not always a terrible thing when you forget your lip products at home, even if you love all of them.  On Saturday, I was out with my mom and my daughters. We had picked up a bite for breakfast, and after, I went to grab some lip goodies from my bag.  Gasp!  They were all MIA!  I had applied balm before I had left but never placed it into my bag, and my lipsticks and glosses tend to float around the house (blogger hazard haha).  Well, I am one of those people who always needs at least balm on her lips, so how convenient was it that the first boutique I came to had an amazing array of cosmetics and clothing?  Thank goodness the Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Collection  jumped off the display to greet me!bare minerals marvelous moxie in show off read more

Battle of the Drugstore Lip Crayons

I prefer my lips have a bit of staying color while feeling hydrated, so I decided to test out these lip crayons.  They promise to provide lasting color with moisture, which are different features than those of matte lip colors or glosses.  Matte lip products make me feel like I’ve been trekking through the dessert without water, and glosses provide high shine but very sheer color.  Lip crayons seem to promise the best of both worlds.  But will they all do the trick?

The first  one I tried was Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick in Nude Pink.  Here’s what I found: read more

Peonies and Orchids: Spring Cosmetics

During my shopping trip yesterday, I picked up a new Clinique Chubby Stick for my lips.  I love how pink and purple undertones complement my skin, so I chose Pudgy Peony.  It adds the perfect pop of color to my lips for springtime.  Plus, it is really moisturizing, and it lasts for hours!
