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.
LipSense Lip Color, Moisturizing Gloss and Ooops! Remover
PriceLipSense Lip Color $25 .25 oz/7.4 mLLipSense Moisturizing Gloss $20 .25 oz / 7.4 mL
LipSense Ooops! Remover $10 .25 oz / 7.4 mL
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 makeup world is broad and rich with full of colors, products and styles. When you are opting for a makeup, people would feel confused on which style to choose. When it comes to learning the makeup tips, you can read about something and know that what you can do immediately. To understand well about these makeup tips, you can start using them in the right way to enhance your beauty routine. Below are the great makeup tips for you to have a favorite look that includes:
The Ruby Kisses Matte Lip Lacquer provides a hybrid of a lipstick and a lipgloss. The application is smooth, creamy and it is of full coverage. Only one coat is needed to provide a full coverage, no need to be going over your lips twice. This Ruby Kisses Matte Lip Lacquer is not sticky and it feels comfortable on the lips.
It comes with a flat applicator that helps to apply the lip lacquer evenly, the staying power is about 4-5 hours before showing the slightest signs of fading and it does not dry out the lips or make your lips feel drying.
The Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick provides the shine of a gloss and the staying power of a lip stain. It comes in a squeeze tube with a velvety sponge tip applicator that dispenses product in little beads when the tube is being squeezed.
It provides a cushion like transfer to lips while absorbing excess product to get an even coverage. The precision tip eliminates the use of a lip liner which makes this formula easier to apply. The Too Faced Melted Liquid Lipsticks are intensely pigmented, opaque and smooth on the lips.
- The L.A. Girl Glazed Lip Paint gives an intensely pigmented appearance of a lipstick, with the ease and aglossy finish of a Lipgloss. The Glazed collection includes 18 trendsetting colors ranging from deep berries, bright to nudes. The Glazed Lip Paint provides a long-lasting, hyper gloss and ultra-rich color to lips.
NYX Butter Gloss is a must have in your beauty collection. The Butter Gloss can be worn alone or over your favorite lipstick for a creamy sheer to medium coverage. The NYX Butter Gloss has a buttery, creamy texture with a moisturizing finish that’s sure to please even the driest lips.The butter gloss provides a medium to sheer coverage as it is highly pigmented depending on the shade. The Butter Gloss melts onto lips providing a gloss finish. It is lightweight, comfortable on lips, it is neither sticky nor does it dry out lips. It also has a sweet vanilla-like scent that you will love, it is divine and not overpowering at all. I hope to buy the entire Butter Gloss collection and that NYX will continue to add more shades.
The colors that I picked up are:
- Apple Strudel – peachy coral pink that looks sheer over the lips
- Peach Cobbler – hot coral red
- Cupcake – really bright neon pink
- Ginger Snap – dark brown
- Praline – taupe brown, perfect nude gloss
- Red Velvet – dark red
- Raspberry Tart – dark purple
NYX Butter Gloss Swatches from L-R Apple Strudel, Peach Cobbler, Cupcake, Ginger Snap, Praline, Red Velvet and Raspberry TartPros:
- True buttery texture

Did you try any of the NYX Butter Gloss?Which color is your favorite?
- Package is not shrink wrap
My lips would get dry in the matter of no time after applying lipsticks whether matte, satin, frost etc. Even though there is a method for that I prefer to apply my lipsticks without the need to apply lip balms prior lipstick applications.

The Surface.Pro by Beauty Blender is a super sleek and modern makeup palette use to download, mix, match and customize makeup. The Surface.Pro Makeup Palette is a very thick acrylic disc that has a five numbered film and storage wells which are used to retain custom makeup mixes.
Instead of using the back of your hand you can simply use the Surface.Pro to find your shade just by holding up the Surface.Pro to your face and match the appropriate color and retain the color in one of the five wells. Makeup mixes often stain the hand and it is difficult to take the color of your hands for a later use but with surface.pro you can take it off and retain it in one of the five wells.You can easily apply from the palette to your face using any beauty tool of your choice.
