Gettin’ Lippy Wit It | LipSense Review

The_HoneyGold_Guru_LipSense_Review_2.jpgHey Hey Ladies,

Welcome to my first  R E V I E W !  I am super excited to be sharing with you my experience with LipSense.  (Note: Watch out for a discount code at the end of the post!)

A super sweet follower of mine, Christine of  @glossitdontstopit, emailed me and asked if I would do an honest review of the product.   I love collaborating and helping other women out so of course I was on board!

Have you heard of LipSense? I am sure you probably have or someone you know probably sells it.  Let’s get into a bit of the background….

Christine was super quick to send me my package and I was very excited.   I let her choose the color she wanted to send me and she chose the color “Nutmeg.”

Let’s get to the review!

| R E V I E W |

|Application| The product comes with instructions that I tried to follow as carefully as possible.  When I applied my first layer I did feel a bit of a tingle which is what is supposed to happen according to the instructions.  You can build the color through layers based on preference.  I opted to do three layers for the fullest amount of color, letting each layer dry before applying the next.

Should you mess up, you can just use the “Oops remover”!

I prefer how the color looks without the gloss added but quickly learned the gloss does give the lip color staying power.

|Wear| I applied my color around 9am and throughout the day never reapplied once.  I drank coffee in the morning, water throughout the day, and ate lunch and dinner.  The color did not come off!  It also did not transfer to any bottle, cups, or utensils!  The color was still on at 10 pm that evening.

The second day I wore it I even went to bed with it on just to see if it would last through a nights sleep.  It was still on in the morning and did not transfer to my pillow or sheets.  I showered with it and washed my face and it was still on!  It wasn’t as perfect as the original application but that was proof of its staying power.

|Removal| Removal is pretty easy to do but it is necessary to use the “Oops Removal.”  All you do is apply the product and wipe lips clean.  That’s about it…..

Like every product there are pros and cons to LipSense!  I found my experience mostly positive but I did say I would give an honest review so here are things I think may be important to you when considering purchasing this product:

|Pros|

  • No need to re-apply
  • Lasts all day
  • Beautiful color
  • Easy application
  • Easy removal

|Cons|

  • Can dry out the lips if not used correctly
  • Need the “Oops remover” to fully remove
  • The “tingly” feeling may be unpleasant for some
  • A little on the pricey side
  • Need to reapply gloss

Honestly, I didn’t expect to like this product as much as I do!  I am so glad Christine reached out to me to try it.  This is my first long-lasting lip color experience so I have nothing to compare it to, but for a first time user I am pleased.  I look forward to purchasing more colors.

1 Year Anniversary! | The HoneyGold Guru

Oh Happy Day!

One year ago today I re-branded my blog and wrote my first post as The HoneyGold Guru….My how time flies!!  This past year has been such a journey in personal growth.  I have learned a lot about myself and about blogging.  I am so proud that I have kept up with this blog.  I fall more and more in love with it each post.  This past year has been pretty hard for me and this blog has been one of the outlets to help me cope with the changes in my life.  It is my happy place, my baby, my creative avenue.
