Lipstick Frustrations!

What is your most frustrating makeup?  Is it foundation because it never quite blends well enough?  Is it blush because you just can’t find the right shade?  Is it mascara because your eyes burn when you wear it?  Perhaps, it’s eye shadow because how DO they get it to blend so beautifully?  Or, is it lipstick, because it wears off and has to be reapplied.  We will address these concerns over the next few posts.  We will start with lipstick.

Is there a magic potion to keep lipstick on all day?  Well, no.  There isn’t.  But, wait…perhaps there is!  Lipsense is an amazing lipstick, and truly they need to come up with a new name for it because it really isn’t lipstick.  It’s lip-glide-on-and-stay-on.  The only problem that I have with Lipsense is that is only available through a consultant.  Oh, wait…but if you go to their website to order it, they assign you a consultant!  So, if none of your friends knows someone who knows someone, then you can still purchase.  The other problem I have with them (and why I ended up leaving the company–yes, I did sell Lipsense for a while) is that they have too many colors.  Yes.  Too many colors.  And, with that means that they have colors that are not available all of the time.  They have over-extended themselves.

But, aside from that, it is a great product.  Many companies have come out with their version of the stay on all day formula, and they are less expensive.  And, from reviews, they are just as good.  So, stay on all day lipsticks fix the lipstick wearing off after lunch, after drinking from the water bottle a few times, or in some cases, just talking!  Cover Girl, Stilla, and Maybelline all have comparable brands, with one coat coverage over three coat coverage with Lipsense.  It seems the makeup world has realized that we want better lipstick coverage, and they have complied!
