“I don’t understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little— if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that’s the day she has a date with destiny. And it’s best to be as pretty as possible for destiny” -Coco Chanel.
I live by this quote, and I think you should too. As a rule, I always paint my lips before leaving the house. No matter how busy I am, I always have time to put on lipstick, even if I don’t wear any other makeup. A swipe of a natural gloss can finish a look or grant the illusion of composure to an otherwise bare face.
Matte liquid lipstick is my favorite. Often times, I’ve heard women gripe over liquid lipstick cracking or feeling dry, but that’s because they have not adequately prepped their lips. To prevent this, I use a lip scrub and vitamin E oil. This keeps my skin healthy and moisturized all day long. Word of advice— wait until the oil dries before applying the lipstick.
Today I have the great pleasure of working with LipSense and Bombshell Cosmetics to review their matte liquid lipstick. This lip stain is advertised to last 18 hours; though I never wore the product for a full 18 hours, I was impressed by how well this lipstick stayed. I ate two meals while wearing it. The first meal left my lips perfectly intact, and I only had to make slight touch-ups after the second.
The only critique that I have to mention, in order to be honest, is that the lipstick smells acidic when it is first applied. After a few moments, the scent dissipates.
A unique feature that I really appreciated about LipSense was that it came with a moisturizing gloss and a tube of remover. Since this product stains your lips, the remover is great to have! I tested my everyday makeup remover, and it worked just as well.
I’m wearing the shade “Kiss for a Cause.” I absolutely loved the color. I can only describe it as a vibrant raspberry with a magenta sheen. This shade is perfect if you are looking to test out the trendy popsicle look or just to brighten up a gloomy, Summer afternoon as I often do in Florida.
All in all, I really loved wearing this lipstick. I will most definitely purchase other shades. I hope you all will feel more comfortable wearing liquid lipstick and test out a tube of LipSense from Bombshell Cosmetics!
