It just makes (Lip) Sense – {GIVEAWAY!}

I think I’ve mentioned several times before that I’ve suffered from severely dry/cracked lips for a while now. And by a while, I mean the last decade. For real. I cannot remember ever consistently having the problem until I got pregnant with Ezra, but ever since, it’s been a real (literal) pain. They peel, sometimes in chunks (sorry for the vivid image), bleed, and hurt like the Dickens. Not to mention look a fright (can you tell I’ve been listening to British books again?).

They’re definitely worse in the winter, but it’s pretty much a year-round problem. Even when I drank a gallon of water a day back in the fall (I’m still drinking between 60-90 ounces now), they were a little better, but I still dealt with pretty much constant dry patches.

So, when my savvy friend, Alissa, whom I’ve known for over a decade and whose impeccable taste in products I’ve always admired, told me about LipSense, I was intrigued.

Lip Sense is essentially a color stain that bonds with your lips, which means that it stays on for hours–even through sweating, eating, showering, etc.–but it comes paired with a Shea butter based gloss top coat that not only provides a nice sheen to your color but actually repairs your lips in the process of wearing it.

Let’s just say I was skeptically hopefully. Because I’ve tried pretty much every lip product out there–drugstore, spa, medicated, organic, homemade–with very little improvement, and it just seemed a bit too good to be true.

Except that it was Alissa recommending it, and Alissa–a meticulous personality and a careful researcher–would not recommend something she didn’t love and which didn’t work for her.

Long story short, I’ve been using my Lip Sense products for about 2 months now, and I love them!

Alissa set me up with a starter kit, which includes a tube of color, a tube of gloss, and a special remover, and then, because she knew I struggled so particularly with dry lips, she also hooked me up with the LipSense Moisturizing Lip Balm, which…drum roll, please…WORKS!

I was honestly shocked at how well the balm works. Like, my lips felt smooth and soft as a baby’s you-know-what the next morning.

Like a doofus, I sometimes go days without applying because I foolishly think that my lips will stay moisturized without adding extra moisture (huh?), but every time they start to dry out again, I just head back to the balm, and, sure enough, smooth lips within hours.

Yeehaw!

Couldn’t be happier with that.

Add that to the fact that the LipSense color + gloss combo actually does what it says: goes on easily and actually does stay on for hours (I average between 4 and 10 hours of wear, depending on my activities) IF (and this is key) you use it correctly, and I was pretty dang excited to have found something I loved that was so low-maintenance.

And pretty!

Wanna see?

I have two LipSense colors, but my fave is definitely Plumeria, which is a deep, pinky-red.

{Look, Mom! No unsightly peeling or lumps!}

I think I was getting ready to teach Combat in the above pic, and my participants were probably wondering why I was so dolled up for an exercise class, but, honestly, why not? It didn’t budge through all of the sweating, yelling, mike-adjusting, and water breaks.

{Oh, don’t mind me…just hanging out in my giant van, listening to a book, and wearing lip gloss whilst waiting for my children to get done with piano practice}

One thing I will say is that, since my lips were so dry/jacked up when I started using this, it stung quite badly when I first applied the color. There is some cosmetic grade alcohol in the color (see below for more info). As soon as I used the balm for even one day, though, the stinging went away completely.

I asked Alissa for the low-down to help you understand more about the technical side of LipSense, and she sent me a paragraph, not knowing how much of it you’d want to know, but I honestly thought she expressed it so concisely that I decided to share the whole thing!

In her words:

-LipSense is a long wearing lip color that molecularly bonds to the lips.  It’s worn with a permeable Shea Butter gloss which transfers through the color to hydrate the lips. You get the benefits of a hydrating lip balm combined with all the benefits of a beautiful color.  
-LipSense is available in over 70 shades and 10 different glosses.  It’s applied in 3 layers and topped with a gloss.  The layers can consist of one color, or a combination of any 3 shades for a completely custom look.  It’s important to wear LipSense gloss with the color because other glosses will break down the color and they don’t offer the same moisturizing benefits.  
-LipSense provides a mechanical shield from the sun, so you get the benefits of a sunscreen without all of the chemicals.  It’s also lead free, and the color is wax free. It’s also gluten free and kosher.
-When a person first uses LipSense, they may feel a tingling sensation.  This is an indication that their lips are quite dry.  LipSense contains SD40 cosmetic grade alcohol which will kill bacteria and help the pigment to disperse evenly, but it can also sting as it evaporates from damaged lips.  The tingling or stinging should go away as soon as the soothing gloss is applied.  This usually only occurs the first few times the product is applied, if it occurs at all.
-The color should last anywhere from 4-18 hours.  
-The starter kit costs $55 and consists of a Color, a Glossy Gloss, and an Ooops! Remover.  Additional colors are $25, and additional glosses are $20.  The tube of color should be equivalent to 4 tubes of regular lipstick, and it will last the average person around 5 months.  The amazing lip balm that you love is $20, and mine has lasted me about 6 months so far.  I still have a little bit left.    
-I like to use the original Neutrogena facial bar to remove it at night, but the Ooops! Remover that comes in the starter kit is great for fixing mistakes.  If you use the Neutrogena at night then the Ooops! should last forever.  
I offer a 100% money back guarantee on these products.  If they don’t love it, they can exchange it or return it. 
And now for the best part!
Alissa is offering one of you lucky ducks the chance to win a starter kit–complete with color, gloss, and remover!
No offense to the rest of you, but I’m secretly hoping that one of you girls that struggles with dry lips like I do wins.
Entry is SUUUUUPER easy.

  1. This sounds very cool! My letter is “D”… I’m very intrigued. Liking the FB page right now! 🙂

  2. D: Perpetual Dry lipper.. Hearing your story gives me hope too and Ive never heard of this product.. Kinda excited!

  3. C.

    I teach kindergarten. I apply gloss or lipstick when I leave the house around 6:30 but it usually clumps or rubs off by 8 am and in my line of work I don’t have time to reapply. I’d love to try a stain that won’t dry out my lips. At night I rub vasaline on them because they are parched but this stuff you mention sounds amazing. Too pricey for a teacher’s salary but would love to win!

  4. D! And I struggle with dry, peeling lips as well. It’s so bad that for the past 3 years I’ve only used one balm and no color because I’ve just given up. Would love to try this! And the plumeria color looks fabulous on you!

  5. A! I love wearing LipSense and totally agree it’s amazing for is dry lip ladies! Joined the group 🙂

  6. D!!! I liked her page and the link to your page on her page.. I just typed page way too many times! I am a hairstylist and makeup artist and have never heard of this and I’m super interested! Lip stick/stains are my current obsession and I have tried so many and so many of them are so drying!!! I’m also slightly obsessed with your family… I have told you before that I want to be you when “I grow up”…. 🙂

    1. Hi, Torie! Ok, so you NEED this stuff in your life! I’ll follow up with you after the contest.

  7. Abbie, I went on liquidmakeup.com to look at the ingredients in some of their products. Are you concerned at all about the artificial colorants used in the lip glosses? Some of the ingredients in their skin care products have loooong “scary” names, but when I researched a few, they don’t appear harmful. But color dyes???? Um, no thank you. We don’t use food coloring, so why would I use a lip gloss that is colored artificially? I’d like to hear your thoughts. I, too, tend to have peeling lips, so I was intrigued with your post. It’s tempting to try this. Maybe I’ll enter the give-away… Pam

    1. Hi, Pam! I’m sure Abbie will give you her thoughts on color dyes, but I thought I would weigh in as well to help you determine if this is a product you would feel comfortable using. When you look at the list of ingredients for the gloss, it says that some of them may contain certain ingredients, among them Red 7 Lake. The most popular gloss is the clear Glossy Gloss, which I would imagine does not contain any coloring. (I can follow up with the company to make sure of this if you would like for me to do so.) This may be an option for you. I’ve included a list of ingredients and why the company included these, as well as how they benefit the user. It sounds like you struggle with peeling lips and may not be comfortable with the color options that LipSense provides, so I’ll also include a list of the ingredients in the Moisturizing Lip Balm. You can look those over and see if you are comfortable with them. I know it can be so hard to find a product that fits your needs when you have decided to cut out certain ingredients. If I can help you in any way or if you have any questions, please feel free to reach out!

      LIPSENSE LIP GLOSS

      The Science Behind the Product
      Shea butter, a natural ingredient is used as the key ingredient for the many textures of LipSense Glosses. The moisturizing properties are delivered to the delicate lip tissue while the synthetic beeswax seals the moisture in and helps to prevent moisture loss throughout the day.

      Key Ingredients and Benefits

      LipSense Glosses are made of a combination of ingredients. Here are a few key components:
      Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter): The scientific name for shea butter, considered as a plant lipid. Lipids are the oil and fat components of skin that prevent moisture evaporation from the skin and provide lubrication to the skin’s surface. Lipids are considered as a natural moisturizer.
      Tocopheryl (and Tocopheryl Acetate): Vitamin E, essential for maintaining the activities of enzymes in the cells and for the formation of red blood cells, is also an anti-oxidant and has been shown to inhibit skin cancer and aid in the healing of skin ailments. Vitamin E is a dynamic weapon against premature aging and combating wrinkles by neutralizing free radicals to stop the chain reaction of molecular damage and to protect the skin against oxidation. It’s also believed to protect skin from the sun’s ultraviolet rays once absorbed into the skin.
      Propylparaben: Has anti-fungal and anti-microbial properties that help to prevent mold in products. It is non-toxic and non-irritating to the skin.
      Synthetic Beeswax: A highly refined thickening agent used for its emollient properties that creates a coating over the lips to help seal in moisture.

      LipSense Gloss
      Dimethicone, Synthetic Beeswax, Tocopherol, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Tocopherol, Trimethylsilylamodimethicone, Octoxynol-40, Isolaureth-6, Propylene Glycol, Propylparaben.

      May Contain: Mica (CI 77019), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Red 7 Lake (CI 15850), Galactoarabinan, Ferric Ferrocyanide (Cl 77510).

      MOISTURIZING LIP BALM
      Moisturizing Lip Balm was blended with the finest moisturizers and lip conditioners to help alleviate dry chapped, and damaged skin. Lip Balm delivers much needed moisture to vermillion of lips and maintains the moisture of lips while protecting lips from moisture loss. This versatile rich formula also conditions and softens lips, helps to increase cellular renewal for speedy recovery from damage as it helps protect from harmful rays of the sun with natural ingredients.

      Key Ingredients and Benefits

      Here are a few of the ingredients included:
      Cocos Nucifera (Coconut Oil): used to treat a wide variety of skin problems including bruises, burns, rash, scabies, skin infections, and wounds.
      Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa): Seed Butter – commonly referred to as Cocoa Butter, this vegetable oil is derived from the seeds of the tropical Cacao tree. This solid oil softens the skin and protects it against environmental influences.
      Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter): – considered as a plant lipid. Lipids are the oil and fat components of skin that prevent moisture evaporation from the skin and provide lubrication to the skin’s surface. Lipids are considered as a natural moisturizer.
      Corallina Officinalis (Blue Seaweed): Extract – improves the suppleness and the elasticity of skin. It stimulates the renewal of damaged skin cells, while moisturizing and soothing the skin.
      Algae (Seaweed) Extract: hydrates, protects skin from the sun, and softens the skin. It is essential in the penetration of the top layer of the stratum corneum and enhances the skin’s ability to repair itself.
      Saccharomyces Cerevisiae Extract: a skin-conditioning agent used in cosmetics and beauty care products because of its ability to act in oxidative stress and improve skin conditions.
      Orchis Morio (Orchid): Flower Extract – used as a preparation of emollient products. This powerful anti-oxidant provides free-radical protection and maximum moisturization. The orchid extract is very effective as a sunscreen.
      Retinyl Palmitate: Vitamin A, it is fundamental for increasing skin elasticity and thickening of the epidermis and the dermis. Vitamin A plays an important role in RNA synthesis, known for its cellular renewal properties that speed up exfoliation to reveal younger, plumper skin cells which produces new and healthy cells in the skin and the body, This process of cell renewal and exfoliation helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and skin irregularities. Medical studies indicate that Vitamin A is effective in slowing down skin aging and in reducing the number and depth of wrinkles. A regression of pigmented spots has been demonstrated in medical studies with regular use of Vitamin A.
      Tocopherol: Vitamin E, essential for maintaining the activities of enzymes in the cells and for the formation of red blood cells. Vitamin E is an anti-oxidant and has been shown to inhibit skin cancer and aid in the healing of skin ailments. Vitamin E is a dynamic weapon against premature aging and combating wrinkles by neutralizing free radicals to stop the chain reaction of molecular damage and to protect the skin against oxidation. It’s also believed to protect skin from the sun’s ultraviolet rays once absorbed into the skin.
      Glucosamine HCL: enhances the body’s ability to manufacture collagen. Phenoxyethanol: an oily liquid used as a bactericide and topical antiseptic.
      Propylene Glycol: organic compound used as a ‘carrier’ or ‘holder’ of active ingredients that also softens skin.
      Propylparaben: the n-propyl ester of p-hydroxybenzoic acid, occurs as a natural substance found in many plants and some insects, although it is manufactured synthetically for use in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and foods. It is a preservative typically found in many water-based cosmetics, such as creams, lotions, shampoos and bath products.
      Paraffin: Paraffin oil is a colorless liquid used for lubrication.

      1. Thank you, Alissa! I’m glad you are answering these questions that have been directed to Abbie. Didn’t think of sending my question to you. Now I know! Pam

        1. Pam,
          I figured some of the questions about specific ingredients would be easier for me to handle than for Abbie to address. I’m sure she will still weigh in on her thoughts on the general question.

    2. Hi Pam! Sorry to take so long to respond. Busy weekend! Honestly, I don’t have a great answer for you. I love it when products are as chemical free as they can possibly be, but I also use drugstore products and food dye (very rarely, come to think of it). So, while that’s not a very conscientious response, it’s the truth. I am aware that the pigments in the colors probably can’t be produced without some artificial dyes and colorings. I am also aware that this is probably true of every single lipstick that I’ve ever used outside of a Beauty Counter lipstick that I just got. I don’t mean to sound cavalier. I just haven’t gotten to the point where I worry about it too much. Not saying I won’t get there. I’m just not there yet. That said, it sounds like Alissa gave you some good options for moisturizing that don’t have chemicals. The lip balm is really great!

    1. Hi, Nicole! Since you selected C I won’t bother you by following up with you after the contest ends, but please know that you can always reach me through my Facebook group if your interest changes to D. 🙂

  8. D and I liked her page. Thanks for the info and the opportunity to win what sounds like a miracle.

  9. D. You look great in Plumeria. I’m wondering how a customer picks the perfect lip colors for them. Is there a way to try a sample before purchasing? I’m intrigued by the lip products but want to pick colors that look good on me.

    1. Hi, Amy! Great question. Selecting the right color is the hardest part of the whole process. There are so many great ones to choose from, and it can get a little overwhelming. If someone is local then I usually try to meet with them so that they can try my testers. If they aren’t local, then we do things a little differently. You can send me a picture of you wearing your favorite color, and I can match it that way. It also helps if you can send me a picture of your favorite color of lipstick on your hand. That allows me to see the color before it is altered a little bit by your natural lip color. If you aren’t comfortable doing that, you can send me a picture that you find online of someone else wearing a color that you would like. My Facebook page photo section is set up with albums of each of the individual colors. If you look inside of the albums you will see lot of different women wearing the same color. It was really helpful for me to see the colors I liked on different people, and I was able to identify ladies with similar coloring and see how it looked on them.
      All of the products I offer have a 100% Money back guarantee, so if you get a color that you don’t LOVE, then you can return it. There’s not any paperwork for you to fill out- I take care of all of that. It’s super easy to exchange.
      Feel free to private message me through my Facebook group if you’d like to start this process. I’d love to help you in any way that I can. I love this product and enjoy introducing other ladies to it!

    1. Hello Seaweed & Raine! Since you selected C I won’t bother you by following up with you after the contest ends, but please know that you can always reach me through my Facebook group if your interest level changes.

  10. D. I don’t like products that have an odor or are heavy. My lipstick is pricey so may be worth a try.

    1. Hi, Dawn! LipSense is incredibly light feeling on the lips. I’ve had some new customers who, after trying it on for the first time, have commented that they don’t feel like they are wearing anything on their lips other than gloss. It’s so different than any other lip product I’ve ever tried. I’ve only had one lady out of over 100 that has needed to return the starter kit because of an odor. She is exceptionally sensitive to smells and felt like she continued to smell LipSense as she was wearing it throughout the day. Other customers have commented about a rose smell when they first put it on, but it goes away. I’m sensitive to different odors and get migraines easily, and I’ve never had any issues with LipSense. That being said, I’ve also never smelled the rose smell either. If you decide to try it and find that you don’t love it, please know that you can return it for all of your money back. No hassles. I promise!

  11. I just had my seventh babe and have had a horrible-so-embarrassing-why-won’t any-stinkin’-lip-product-work dry lip problem since I got pregnant with my son 10 years ago. I think it is because I have had six girls in a row. Apparently, girls make your lips plump up because of hormones??? Who would have thought? Anyway, I am ready to be amazed! My choice is D. 😉

    1. Maggie,
      I will contact you directly following the end of the contest, but I can assure you that LipSense isn’t chalky or yucky. I tried countless other products over the last decade looking for something that felt good and would stay on all day without drying out my lips, and this is it for me! The longer I’ve worn it, the better my lips look and feel!

    1. Mary,
      You crack me up! Perhaps this product should be called Lip Soulmate instead of LipSense. That would be far catchier! I just threw away an enormous bag of lipstick that I had collected over the years, searching for THE ONE. It was like ending a bad relationship. I’ll contact you directly once the contest ends to discuss this amazing product!!

    1. I have a sweet customer who described herself the same way! When she came to see me the first time her lips were in such bad shape that they would crack and bleed every time she would brush her teeth. She would pick at them to try to pull the flaking bits off to make them look and feel better, and then they would bleed more. She has been wearing LipSense for around three months now, and she has a new set of lips. They look and feel beautiful. She had tried everything to heal them, and this was the miracle that she needed. I’ll contact you after the contest ends, but feel free to reach out to me on Facebook if you’d like to work out a plan to heal your lips. If the plan doesn’t end up working for you, I’ll return all your money! It’s a win/win.

  12. D- I have really dry lips And haven’t found that magic moisturizer! I also need to start wearing lipstick as my lips are disappearing

  13. D. Never heard of it but am interested. I too suffer from dry lips and have to constantly reapply lipstick. Thanks!

  14. C – I have never heard of Lipsense. Do you know if it has any of these ingredients? BHA and BHT: synthetic antioxidants used to extend shelf life. They are likely carcinogens and hormone disruptors, and may cause liver damage, found in lipsticks

    1. Hi, Kathy! When looking at the ingredients of LipSense, I do not see either BHA or BHT, but I’ll include some information on the ingredients so that you can look it over and decide for yourself if it’s something that you would feel comfortable looking into as an option. I know we all have to make those important decisions based on what we feel comfortable putting into our bodies. I personally think the first ingredient listed should be Magic!

      LipSense Long-Lasting Liquid Lip Color is made of a combination of ingredients. Here are a few key components:
      Denatured Alcohol: used as a delivery system for the color technology; creates a germ and bacteria-free environment.
      Paeonia Suffruticosa Root (Tree Peony) Extract: a natural calming plum flower herb. Hypericum Perforatum (St. John’s Wort) Extract: also known as St John’s Wort, a
      natural herb used to elavate mood and treat depressions.
      Tilia Cordata (Linden) Flower Extract: a natural flower extract rich in flavonoids and a powerful anti-oxidant.
      Isodonis Japonicus Extract: Fragrant plant extract that contains terpenes, shown to have medicinal properties to soothe skin.
      Mica: an earth mineral used to give products sparkle and shine.
      Titanium Dioxide: an inert earth mineral used as a thickening ingredient and sunscreen in cosmetics. It protects skin from UVA and UVB radiation and is considered to have no risk of skin irritation.
      Note: Just as important as what is in LipSense, is what is not! LipSense is formulated with no wax, lead, or animal by-products.

      Full list of ingredients:

      Denatured Alcohol, Acrylates/Octylacrylamide Copolymer, Isostearyl Alcohol, Silica, Fragrance (Parfum), Water (Aqua), Paeonia Suffruticosa Root Extract, Hypericum Perforatum Extract, Tilia Cordata Flower Extract, Isodonis Japonicus Extract.

    1. Hello, Heidi! I responded to Kristin’s comment earlier with this, but I wanted to make sure you also saw it:

  15. I just bought this from Alyssa at the beginning of May and am HOOKED! I had very dry lips and just didn’t see how this wouldn’t dry them out more but 3 wks later my lips are so smooth and all those little pieces of dry skin are gone. I put it on at 7:30 am and barely have to touch up during the day and just some gloss if heading out at night. Bought two great colors…an every day and a great red for dressy. But pretty sure I need another color now.

  16. E – I might have heard about this, but didn’t pay attention to the name. A friend was sharing on Facebook about some kind of lipstick/stain. I would be interested in more info.

    1. Hi, Susan! I’ll certainly provide you with more information when the contest ends, but please feel free to reach out to your friend and order through her if it is the same product that she promotes. I’m here to answer any questions and help out in any way that I can!

    1. Hi, Cheryl! I’ve responded to a couple other ladies with this same story, but I wanted to make sure you would see it too.

  17. I immediately “liked” her page!! LipSense sounds sooo fabulous I definitely want to try! My lipstick and lip gloss lasts about 30 seconds!

    1. Elissa,
      Since you selected C I won’t bother you by following up directly after the contest ends, but I did want to share a comment that a fellow Carmex addict sent to me. She was an all natural girl who didn’t wear any lip color, so she just purchased the Moisturizing Lip Balm. I was interested to see what she thought of it, since she said that she keeps Carmex in her car, at her desk, beside her bed…you get the picture. 🙂 I don’t see a way to attach a picture of her note to me, so I’ll just type it out.
      It said:

      Alissa,
      This lip balm is AMAZING!
      Traveled over the weekend without it and thought I was going to go crazy. Tried to get by with my old Carmex- will never leave home without my LipSense again. Thanks!

      I bought some of the lip balm before deciding to become a distributor, and I almost passed out when I saw a $20 price tag. How much different could it be from what I already used, right? I’m a pretty frugal person, and the only reason I purchased it was because I knew I could return it if it wasn’t worth the price. I fell in love with it, and it’s lasted me 6 months so far. It was a great investment for me. If you reach a point where you would like to purchase any of these products, feel free to reach out to me on Facebook. I’d love to help you out!

  18. D. I very rarely wear any color because I can’t find much that looks good on me, feels good on, and I hate reapplying all the time. Sounds like I need to look into this!

  19. D, I would love a lasting color with a moisturizer that actually works like it claims it does! I would be a fan for Life!!! Will head over to Alissa’s blog for an extra entry! Thanks a bunch❤️

  20. (I entered but not sure it went through. If yes ignore :))
    D I hav3 dry yucky mama lips.
    I joined her fb group
    Thank u!

  21. D! I’m a labor and delivery nurse…in and out of the OR and would love something that will stay put even behind my surgical mask!

    1. First off, thank you for all your hard work as a labor and delivery nurse! You guys make such a difference in the lives of scared pregnant ladies who have to push a human from their bodies. I will never forget the gracious ladies who cared for me the day my daughter made her appearance. Know that you make a huge difference.
      My friend Renee works in an operating room behind a mask all day. Her first picture to me after she purchased LipSense was one taken after the end of her shift. Here is what she had to say:

      After 6 hours in the OR, my lip color is still bright and not a speck of it rubbed off on my mask! (My foundation, not so much)

      I’ll contact you directly after the contest ends, but in the meantime feel free to look over my Facebook page. Thanks for your interest!

  22. D! This sounds like an amazing product! I have the same problem. When I got pregnant my lips became extremely dry. I put on lip balm ALL. THE. TIME. and nothing helps. My husband always likes to let me know my lips are dry. (Thanks hun). Awesome giveaway.

  23. D) I have not heard of Lipsense and would like to learn more. I’m a diabetic and due to the medications I take
    I suffer with dry mouth and dry lips. It gets to be very uncomfortable. I can’t stop the medication I take, even though it would get rid of my dry mouth/lip problem. I’d love to get lucky enough to win the giveaway. Something that could help my problem, would be a Godsend.
    Thank you.

    1. Hi, Jennifer! I think you would love LipSense, and most likely it will be the perfect solution for your dried lips. What I love is that if it turns out to not work as well as you need for it to, you are able to return it for a full refund. I’ll be in touch after the contest ends, but feel free to look over my Facebook group to get some ideas about colors you may like. If you aren’t one who wears lipstick then know that just the balm will work wonders as well!

  24. D. I am forever looking for a color that will STAY but will not dry out and look all 90-year old woman on my lips!

    1. Hi, Tiffany! You are looking for exactly what I was looking for many months ago! Every time I found a great color that would stay on for a few hours it would dry my lips out to the point where I could no longer wear it. I have been blown away by LipSense because it hydrates them while the colors stays put! It’s really amazing. I’ll follow up with you after the contest ends, but feel free to reach out to me on my Facebook group if you are interested sooner. If you purchase something and then feel like it’s not the Holy Grail of lip color for you, then please know that you can return it to me for a 100% refund. No hassles from me. 🙂

    1. Hi, Elizabeth! I’ve shared this a few times in other comments, but I wanted to make sure you saw it as well.

      I have a sweet customer who described herself the same way! When she came to see me the first time her lips were in such bad shape that they would crack and bleed every time she would brush her teeth. She would pick at them to try to pull the flaking bits off to make them look and feel better, and then they would bleed more. She has been wearing LipSense for around three months now, and she has a new set of lips. They look and feel beautiful. She had tried everything to heal them, and this was the miracle that she needed. I’ll contact you after the contest ends, but feel free to reach out to me on Facebook if you’d like to work out a plan to heal your lips. If the plan doesn’t end up working for you, I’ll return all your money! It’s a win/win.

  25. D. If I don’t reapply Carmex (my lip drug of choice) every couple of hours, my lips get really dry. The days I accidentally leave it home are a nightmare. The link for Alissa’s page didn’t work for me, but I’d like to like her page.

    1. Hi, Birdsandberry! I posted this reply earlier in the thread, but as a fellow Carmex Addict I wanted to make sure you saw it as well. 🙂 I will follow up with you personally once the contest ends.

      I did want to share a comment that a fellow Carmex addict sent to me. She was an all natural girl who didn’t wear any lip color, so she just purchased the Moisturizing Lip Balm. I was interested to see what she thought of it, since she said that she keeps Carmex in her car, at her desk, beside her bed…you get the picture. 🙂 I don’t see a way to attach a picture of her note to me, so I’ll just type it out.
      It said:

      Alissa,
      This lip balm is AMAZING!
      Traveled over the weekend without it and thought I was going to go crazy. Tried to get by with my old Carmex- will never leave home without my LipSense again. Thanks!

      I bought some of the lip balm before deciding to become a distributor, and I almost passed out when I saw a $20 price tag. How much different could it be from what I already used, right? I’m a pretty frugal person, and the only reason I purchased it was because I knew I could return it if it wasn’t worth the price. I fell in love with it, and it’s lasted me 6 months so far. It was a great investment for me. If you reach a point where you would like to purchase any of these products, feel free to reach out to me on Facebook. I’d love to help you out!

I love hearing from you guys!
