Review: Lipsense by Sengence

Hello Lovelies!

Today, I am reviewing the Lipsense that I was sent for free to try out from Red Gate Beauty.  I have heard about Lipsense but I have never tried it out. When I was offered this opportunity I thought I would document my day while wearing it so we can see if the claims are really true. Lipsense is lead free, wax free, gluten free, vegan, kosher, and not tested on animals.

I was sent the Lipsense in Blue Red and a Glossy Gloss. I am super pale so I thought the blue red would compliment my skin tone.

The Claims:

Lipsense is a long lasting liquid lip color that is guarenteed to last 4-18 hours! It is waterproof, smudge proof, kiss proof, and non drying.

About Lipsense:

You can mix the Lipsense colors to make new colors as well which I could not test out but this was written on the sheet that was sent with my Lipsense.

You can remove the Lipsense with the “oops” remover, an oil based remover, Neutrogena bar soap or castille soap.

Lipsense works to take off dead wax build up on your lips. You can wear the gloss at night to speed up this process but your lips should be feeling different by the end of the week.

My Experience:

IMG_20170911_095910_811(1)

I put on my Lipsense at 9 a.m. that morning. I had no problems putting it on. I put on 3 layers, let it dry in between each layer like it said to do, and then put the glossy gloss on top. This is the result. I think the color suits me a lot and it looks beautiful. The lip color alone is drying but then you put the glossy gloss on top and it moisturizes it. With the glossy gloss on top, you would think it would transfer but I kissed my husband, kissed my kids and nothing transferred at all. This was very weird as I am not used to no transfer.

20170911_095235I took this picture after eating Pho, drinking Thai Tea and this was at 2 p.m. Nothing has budged,nothing has rubbed off, and it still looks as fresh and glossy as it did when I put it on that morning. I was amazed to say the least.

This was at 5 p.m. after eating a snack, still running errands, and the Lipsense is still going strong. It was hot and humid this day, my son had to go to the doctor so I was loving on him and nothing has moved.

This last check in was at 9 p.m. when I was just over the day, exhausted and ready to get a shower. As you can see, my lips do not look as glossy and the water line has rubbed off but I read that you can touch that up if you need to refresh at night which for 12 hours of wear, I was pretty impressed.

Pros:https://wordpress.com/post/susheii.wordpress.com/3816

-Long Lasting

-Kiss proof

-Smudge proof

-Vibrant

-Not sticky

Cons:

-The price. The price of just a Lipsense lipstick and Glossy Gloss is $55 dollars. To me, that is a little steep for lip products. On the other hand, you can mix colors to get many other colors and it is very long lasting so I think they would last a while so it may be worth the money.

-The taste. I am a natural lip licker and I kept getting this god awful taste everytime I licked my lips. It was very unpleasant.

I think everyone should try out Lipsense to see if it is for them. I loved the outcome of my experience and I would give it a shot. Red Gate Beauty has offered a discount code to all of my readers. You can use bloggymoms15 at checkout for 15% off.

I hope you enjoyed this review and my experience with Lipsense!

Smiley360 Review

Hello Lovelies!

smiley

I have been a part of Smiley360 for a good while now. At least 2 years. This is a place where you can get free items in exchange for reviews and posting about it on your social media. I have received quite a lot of interesting products and then posted my honest thoughts about them on social media.

Brands want you to give your honest opinion about their products so they know whether consumers actually enjoy them or not so you do not have to fake your reviews. You have to earn so many points to get badges and this is pretty easy. You can also earn points that you can use on mypoints for rewards and such. You have over a month to complete this which gives you time to test out the products and form an opinion on what you think.

I enjoy the time frame the most. I feel like I can give my honest thoughts on the products and I do not feel rushed. You can opt out if you are chosen and it will not affect your status on the site which is nice.

If you are interested in checking out this amazing site, you can do so here

Review: Marc Jacobs Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayons

IMG_20170819_163843_556

Hello Lovlies!

Today, I am reviewing the Marc Jacobs Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayons. First off, I have to say these are the creamiest eyeliners that I have ever tried and such beautiful colors.

I was sent the Pink of Me which is a beautiful blush pink shade which is beautiful in the waterline. It is gorgeous! It really brightens up the eyes and they are very long wearing which is really nice for those long days.

The other color is (earth)quake which is a very deep creamy chocolate brown that is gorgeous smoked out on the lower lash line. This really brings out the brown in my eyes and just brightens them up. I love these eyeliners.

These liners are sold at Sephora for $25 dollars. Another great thing about these liners is they are a no sharpen eyeliner which is a big thing for me. I hate having to sharpen eyeliners. These just twist up and they are super creamy and easy to blend. I am in love. I really hope you enjoyed this blog post.

Review: Origins Skincare 3 Piece Set

origins
Hello Loves. Recently I was sent this 3 piece skincare set for free to review thanks to Origins and Influenster. First off, I am in love with Origins and I have been using their skincare for years. I love the way everything smells and I love their ingredients and the way their products just wake up my skin and make everything look brighter. origins.png

There is the GinZing Face Wash that has a mild exfoliate inside which is perfect for sensitive skin. It does not irritate the skin and the smell is just very light and not overpowering which I like.

I also got the Brightening Eye Cream which is the most moisturizing, brightening eye cream I have ever tried. It instantly erases my dark circles and makes my eyes look brighter which I need with 2 kids. I never get sleep anymore. It is very rich and moisturizing which is great.

Last is the Origins GinZing Energy Boosting Gel Moisturizer. I love the way this feels on my skin. It feels very cooling and refreshing which is great in our 107 degree weather we have in Alabama. It is very lightweight, light smell and does not clog my pores or break me out which is a plus.

I would highly recommend the GinZing Line from Origins as their products have yet to disappoint me.

Review: Bamboo Cutting Board and Utensils

Clasier_Organic_Bamboo_Cutting_Board_4_piece_utensiles_set_display_image_600x_crop_center

Hello Lovelies!

Today I am reviewing the Calsier Organic Bamboo Cutting Board and Utensils.

I love using bamboo utensils when I cook in the kitchen. I have pots that do not like metal cooking utensils and the bamboo just works so well in them. This set comes with a cutting board which I love. The quality is really nice in this set and I have had no chipping or shredding that I do with the off brand bamboo sometimes. They hold up to several washings and hot temperatures. The cutting board is large so it gives you plenty of cutting room and allows me to chop all my veggies and sit them aside on the board where I can just pour them into the pan. It is super easy to clean and they are super fast drying which I enjoy. Overall I think this is a great product for anyone’s kitchen. If you are interested in this product, you can purchase it here.

Jeffree Star Cosmetics Haul <3

Hello Lovelies!

I made my first purchase from Jeffree Star after hearing some mixed reviews, I thought I would give them a go and see for myself.

First off, the packaging is on point. Every product was nicely wrapped and very taken care of.

20170610_154512

I only got 3 things to try to see if I will end up liking them or not. I got a Skin Frost in Ice Cold, a lip ammunition in Celebrity Skin and a lip scrub in Spearmint.

I love that all of his products are vegan and cruelty-free. As far as I can tell just from swatching, his products are very pigmented. I will do reviews once I test out the products in depth.

I am VERY pale so I am super excited to see how this highlighter works on my skin. Celebrity skin looks like a great nude. I hope it is not too brown on my skin. I needed a good lip scrub and I love the taste of spearmint. I read where you can eat the product so I will test out the taste as well! Haha.

 

Reviews to come later!

Colourpop Haul <3

Hello Lovelies!

Recently, I did a bit of online shopping and I am going to do some blog post about what I bought. The first bit of shopping I did was at Colourpop. I love Colourpop. They have amazing products at such an affordable price. Their pigmentation is on point and I have quite a Colourpop Collection going on. Here is what I bought.

20170605_145622

Here is an overview of what I purchased.

The first thing that caught my eye was this lippie kit called Persuade Me. I love all the neutral-brown colors and I think these will look great on my pale skin or at least I am hoping. I love their Lippies. They are so pigmented and the swatch is with one swipe down my hand. This was on sale for $20.

I bought their Birthday Bash Bag filled with tons of products for only $35 which I thought was a great deal. These were the Ultra Glossy Lip products that came in the birthday bag. The names are Wishes, Bash and RSVP. This bag was limited edition swag bag and I am so glad I got my hands on it. These are going to work great when I just wanna add some shine to my lips or used as a topped on a lipstick.

I also got a FREE birthday eyeshadow called birthday cake which is a GORGEOUS rose gold color. It is gorgeous. This highlighter also came in the birthday swag bag and it is called Blow Me Out. I had swatches for these but I swear I cannot find the picture anywhere.

Of course, the main reason I wanted to place an order was to try their new pressed eye shadows. You can also buy the magnetic palette to put these in. The eye shadows are $5 dollars each and they are comparable (and better in my opinion) to Mac eyeshadows which cost around $12. The top row are the 4 eye shadows that come in the Birthday Bash Bag. They are beautiful colors. The names of those are Cake Walk, The Big 3, Party Favors and Rager. The next 2 rows of eye shadows are the ones that I picked out individually. If they are good, I am going to want to go back and buy many more but I calmed myself for now. The ones I got in order are Take a Break, Labyrinth, Liar Liar, Let Me Explain, Team Captain, Come and Get it, Sideline and Up and Up. I am excited to try out the duochrome. The magnetic palette cost $7.

I also got a palette called Hi-Maintenance. I loved the colors in this palette and thought I would give them a go. The colors in this palette are called Just in Time, High Strung, Get Out and Cute Alert. This was $18.

I also got the Iluvsarahii palette for the purple colors and I am hoping this works well with my brown eyes. The colors in this palette are called Heavy Glam, Chic Happens, Lit and Razy. This was also $18.

I am excited to try all these products out and report back with many blog post on my thoughts about the items that I bought. I hope you enjoyed this post.
