Every year there are new beauty trends popping up in the beauty world. They may last a couple of weeks, or they may last for years; a strong red lip was a trend once upon a time that has really stood the test over the decades.
We all need a lip colour that will last throughout the day. A lip colour that does not smudge but pops its beautiful pigmented colour. Imagine every time you choose to eat and drink and all that lip colour keeps rubbing off. I hate that! Especially after just taking a sip of coffee or tea only to see that the mug is stained with lip colour.I recently came across a day that I will have minimal effort to do touch-ups to my makeup. I still had the chance to eat and drink but not to touch up my makeup. As a matter of fact, I couldn’t even bring along my makeup with me since I had nowhere to store it. I had the opportunity of participating in the St. Maarten Carnival Parade 2017 and for an event like this, it is impossible to be walking with a bunch of attachments. You just want to be free on that day, so that you can better show off your costume and have fun in the parade.While doing my makeup a lot of thoughts came to mind; what lipstick should I wear? Which brand lipstick or shade that I know for sure will last at least 8 hrs? on my lips before fading? These are some of the questions I thought of before I prep my makeup for the Carnival Parade.
I was recently introduced to LipSense by SeneGence. Lipsense lip color is a premier product of SeneGence. It is being described as a long-lasting lip color that is waterproof, does not kiss-off, smear-off or budge-off and stays on for up to 18 hrs. LipSense lip color is available in a variety of textures such as frost, matte and shimmer and different undertones such as yellow-based/warm, neutral and blue-based/cool. For proper use or first-time users, it is recommended to purchase the LipSense collection in which you will receive a Lip Color, Moisturizing Gloss and the LipSense Ooops! Remover.

How to apply
The LipSense lip color should be applied to dry, clean lips. Prior application to lip, shake up the tube very well, as the colour separates from the wand applicator.Move the applicator in one direction by using a sweeping motion over the lips to apply the lip color.Apply 3 layers of the lip color for a long-lasting result. Allow the color to dry between each application.
Then add a layer of the moisturizing gloss on top to finish off and keep color lasting and lips moist.
For Touch Ups
By any chance, if you need to touch up a spot or your waterline during the day, it is recommended to remove the gloss and ensure that lips are dry. Then, apply 2-3 thin coats of LipSense Lip Color where needed. Allow it to dry and finish off with LipSense Moisturizing Gloss.
For a Customize Lip
LipSense Lip Color can be customized to your very own unique look. Simply layer on different shades of lip color to create the ombre effect of your choice.
How to Use the RemoverBy using a wet washcloth wipe your lips to fully removed the gloss and it allows lips to dry. Follow up with the Ooops! Remover, apply generously over lips; keep the mouth open. Allow it to sit for about 30 seconds before removing. This need to be done since some colours are darker and the lip colour was layered up to 3 times.After 30 seconds, rub lips together for another 30-45 seconds to help break down the color on lips.
Use a warm washcloth and wipe away products on the lip. Repeat if necessary.
My lip is very sensitive. On my first application of the LipSense Lip Color I find that it tingled, plumped and my lip had a burning sensation. To avoid further damage and for precaution measures, I did not proceed with completely applying the product. I just did one layer and took it off. From the looks of the product, I can guarantee that you will have a long-lasting wear if you apply it as recommended.

The Tarte Maracuja Lip Exfoliant seems like a mixture of Vaseline and white sugar finely blended and mixed together. The Maracuja Lip Exfoliant is said to contain raw sugar granules that are suspended in a soothing balmy elixir of antioxidants and vitamin C.
Sometimes my lips can get extremely dry due to the heat from the sun and not enough intake of water. At this point in time, my lips would appear chapped to the point where the dead skin is actually peeling off. With this lip problem that I have, I decided to the purchase the Tarte Maracuja Lip Exfoliant.

The product packaging does not have any instructions on how to use, but since I am not new to lip exfoliant I stick to using the usual procedure. Well it all boils down to how dry/chap my lip is:
Extremely dry: I would wet my lips prior and apply the Tarte Maracuja Lip exfoliant to my lips and let it sit for a while then I would massage it in and wipe away with a wet towel.
Dry: I would damp my lips with water then proceed to apply the product to my lips then I massage the product with my fingers tips or a soft toothbrush.
The Tarte Maracuja Lip Exfoliant is a thick sugary scrub made especially for exfoliating the lips. For soft, moisturizing lips a little bit of the product goes a long way. When my lips are extremely dry and chapped, I find that the product does not really do a great job at exfoliating. Instead, it leaves dead skin hanging from the lips meanwhile other parts of the lips feel soft. I remember I had to use small size scissors to cut/remove the hanging skin.
If the Maracuja Lip Exfoliant sugary ingredient would melt off the dead skin area and prevent my lips from bleeding then this product would be an A+. It just doesn’t buff off the dead skin cells efficiently.

- I bought this Smith’s Minted Rose Lip Balm specifically to be worn at night to heal my dry, thirsty cracked lips as I sleep and to be worn during the day. The texture of the balm is very soft as if it’s melting and it feels like Vaseline on the lips. The balm feels minty when first applied to the lips but it wears off in a minute. This lip balm is essential to soothe dry lips and it works overnight, you will wake up to a soft sheen lips instead of dry chapped lips. Smith’s Rose Lip Balm is very hydrating, it will last up to hours on your lips.
The Many Purposes of Smith’s Minted Rose Lip BalmSmith’s Minted Rose Lip Balm can be used for many multi-purposes it can also be used on the skin to heal irritation and soothes the sting of minor burns. I have yet to try it for those purposes. I might find it useful someday to use on dry ashy elbows and knees.What brought me to purchase this product was the good reviews that I read on Sephora’s website. I was initially looking for a lip balm that can soothe my lips during the night while I sleep. I was just tired of waking up to dry crack lips; exfoliating every time before I apply my favorite matte lipstick. Feeling the dryness under my lip and ending up with cracky lips whenever I apply lipstick.
Smith’s Minted Rose Lip Balm PackagingThe tin can be difficult to open but once you play around with it then you will get the hang of it. Just simply hold the bottom container and pull the lid until it’s completely off. By doing that you will have an easier access to getting the lid of the tin and using the product.What is your go-to lip balm?How do you prevent your lips from getting dry & crack?
EOS Lip Balm adds a light sheen to lips with a bit of flavour. The round sphere shape design of the packaging is unique in comparison to the regular twist up tube lip gloss and the pot lip balms that you’d have to dip your fingers in or use a lip brush to get the product out for usage.
How to use EOS Lip Balm
This lip balm can be use prior matte lipstick or tinted lip balm application. I wouldn’t recommend or use this lip balm before going to bed/while sleeping hence it will dry on my lips since it doesn’t produce the amount of sheen to keep my lips moist.
It can be use daily during the day to prevent dry chapped lips. I believe this product will last up to 3 – 6 months especially if used on a regular basis. I haven’t tried all the flavours and someday I hope I will. I have only collected two eos lip balm from the entire collection. Just the other day I was scrolling through Ulta’s website where I saw a trio set that I am hoping to buy next time I do some shopping online. The trio set has stripes going around the bulky sphere container while this regular eos lip balm comes in a variety of one solid colour whether red, yellow, green, pink etc.
