This is not a sponsored post, just a follow-up post sharing my Lipsense alternatives and an honest Lipsense review after 9 months using all products. Affiliate links are included in this post, which help support and keep this blog running!
At the end of last summer I heard about a drugstore brand of lipstick that didn’t smudge and stayed put for several hours, and after investing money in Lipsense I decided I’d go ahead and try it to see if it did the same thing. This lead to some research and finding 7 products that claimed they didn’t smudge, and I decided to start my project to try them all and report back if any actually worked and stayed on, hence that epic blog post of so many movies and so many weeks of research later “7 Excellent, Affordable Alternatives to Lipsense” was born meant to help people not waste money trying products that might not work. Much to my shock, none of the products smudged, and I posted that post with only that in mind.
It’s a funny thing when something goes “viral” and thousands of people are reading it every day. The things I have seen, the things I have heard, oh my there were a lot of strong opinions on all sides! But there were a lot of really great comments and questions that I had to say- I’m not sure, I just tried them and shared them as makeup that stays on.
Well friends, 9 months later I have a lot to say about my journey with products, thoughts, real value, and what I’m wearing now. And in true fashion, I created another vlog post sharing my follow up thoughts and where I landed after the experiment.
Knowing this is another epic video, I added some title sections if you want to skip ahead to any part and see just that piece, but I promise, I tried to be super concise and give a lot of thoughts and reasoning behind my experiences and opinions.
::: 1:36 My thoughts on the alternatives, how much I wore them, how well they lasted
::: 5:56 My experience trying and using Lipsense again after the project and several months of wearing drugstore brands
::: 13:58 Where I am now, what I’m currently wearing and why
And I’m sure there’s plenty of jaw drops if you didn’t make it through the movie and are reading now that Lipsense ended up being the only thing my (formerly) pregnant skin could handle and over time I realized it was just lasting so much better than the other options, even though the price per ounce is more, it was taking way less product and lasting so many more wears and months than the other products.
I got hooked, again, and I’ve only been wearing Lipsense and Maybelline ever since. I still stand by my post 100%, I think all women (or men if it’s your thing) deserve lipstick that stays in place. I know Lipsense is a bit more than many can justify, but I’m also learning the value is actually more and greater than the alternatives in the long run.
If you want to stick with drugstore brands, I’m so glad I helped you find your product! If you want to try the stuff that really lasts the longest and is the best for your lips, Lipsense is worth the investment. I’d liken it to the premium product, and sometimes that’s just worth the cost, which after spending so much time with other options I feel like it is for me!
And because I fell back in love and I’m still a cheapskate, I signed up months ago as a distributor for my own discount, but I’m now ready to let anyone else know who wants to try it, who wants to increase their collection, or who wants a really honest opinion on which colors actually last, apply well, and look best on certain skin tones I’m here to help!
I have to disclose I in no way plan to have this take over my blog, my social, or make any of my friends or family ever feel pressured into anything, I really do hate that piece of the MLM model! But if you’ve ever been curious, you want good discounts (I’m going to pass on as much as I can), or you want to join yourself and talk to someone who will be super honest with you and has a business background, here’s where you can find me:
I also feel even more in love with some of their other products, which I’ll share over on those sites and social accounts, so be sure to follow and join if you want to see all the looks. I’m also going to sell it a bit different and offer a lot of deals and things I haven’t seen other distributors do, as much as the company allows, so you don’t want to miss out if you’re a Lipsense lover or someone on the fence who just wants to try it out for the best deal and with a person you know
And now we can carry on friends, and I can live my life feeling like an honest woman instead of one hiding applying my favorite lipstick in the corner.
