There’s this thing I’ve been doing for a couple of months now. I’ve alluded to it twice on the blog (here and here if you want to see) and today is the day I’m going full on salesperson on you. I don’t generally think of myself as a salesperson but I did sell Pampered Chef back in the day and my feeling about the products I hustled then is the same as the ones I’m hustling now: I use it every day and I think it’s awesome and I think you will, too.
Here comes the testimonial, which sounds a lot like a sales pitch but isn’t meant to be one. Well, I guess it sort of is because, believe me, if you want to buy this I will for sure sell it to you. Anyway. LipSense is a liquid lip color that’s unlike anything else I’ve ever used. It lasts for hours, and when I say hours I mean all freaking day, without needing to be reapplied. It lasts through coffee in the morning, salad at lunch time, a kiss hello after work, and drinks and dinner. It’s completely different than other long lasting lipsticks in that it’s not drying. There is a gloss that you apply after the color and you can (and should) reapply that gloss throughout the day but that’s completely different than touching up lipstick – as in, you don’t need a mirror to reapply gloss.
There is a range of colors like you can’t even believe, everything from bright red to dark wine, lights pinks and dark pinks, peaches and purples and plums. In that photo collage I am wearing, from left to right starting at the top left and working in a circle: Caramel Apple, Purple Reign, Cranberry, Bella, Mojave and Napa. Believe me when I say there is a perfect color for everyone. Honestly, I think a side hazard of this business is that I’m constantly looking at women not wearing lipstick and thinking about what color I would recommend. When I’m not doing that I’m looking at women who are wearing lipstick and thinking about what color of LipSense would be comparable. For years my mother bugged me about wearing lipstick. She was a woman who put on lipstick no matter what, even if she was staying home all day. I never bothered, though, because I hated reapplying and I just never found a lipstick I loved enough to go through the hassle. Now, though, I’m also a woman who puts it on when staying home all day. It’s just that good.
I know you’re wondering – how much is this stuff? Well, like any quality product, it’s not cheap. A starter collection, which includes one color, one gloss and the remover, is $55. After you take the plunge on the starter collection you can add additional colors for $25 and extra gloss (it’s nice to have one in your purse and your gym bag and your car, etc) for $20. That may seem steep to some people but to me it is worth every penny. For one thing, the tubes are big and last a long, long time. For another, colors can be layered and blended so two or three different colors can give you lots of options to create your own special look. And, you know, I’ve never been one to skimp on personal care and beauty products. I used Clinique for years, only recently switching to Rodan & Fields. I wear quality perfume and use Paul Mitchell Hair products. In other words – I don’t have a problem buying good quality products when it comes to taking care of myself.
So. Thanks for listening to my sales pitch if you’ve read to the end. If you’re intrigued and want to know more just leave me a comment and I’ll tell you everything you want to know and then some. If you’re not, I hope you’ll wish me well on this endeavor anyway and maybe tell a friend or two about this crazy blogger who sells lipstick. Finally, if you’ve tried it and love it so much you want to join my team, I’d love to have you sign up to sell it, too.
P.S. The website is SeneGence and you can order directly from them using my distributor ID number which is 251974. If you do that, though, you can only purchase colors that they have in stock. You can also order directly from me and choose from the colors I have available. If you do that you can pay me with paypal or a check and I will ship the products directly to you.
