This week I teamed up with my friends Colleen Crockett and Brittany Dodds to create a killer look for a photoshoot. I met Colleen through a friend on Instagram and she introduced me to LipSense. LipSense is a long-lasting lip color from SeneGence. Colleen told me about the waterproof. smear-proof, and most importantly KISS-PROOF product and I just had to try it for myself! We discussed color options and decided on Napa, one of the most popular colors. She sent me a tube of LipSense so that I could try it out and let all of you know it works!

The first time I tried LipSense was for the Carrie Underwood Concert. And I have to admit - the first time I applied LipSense, I didn't get it exactly right. I applied my three coats, waited for it to dry in between layers, then added my gloss. It looked GREAT. My friend and I went to dinner before the show, and unfortunately I neglected apply a layer of gloss before I ate so I did have to touch up my lips before we went to the show, but not once after!

 
 

The second time I used the product was for a photoshoot I did last weekend. My friend and beauty blogger Brittany Dodds came over, did my make up and then I applied my LipSense color and gloss. Following the application we went out for the photoshoot. I had 4 outfits. We spent about 3 hours total between photo sessions, outfit changes, and location changes.

Between every outfit and location change (and sometimes in the middle of photo sessions) I asked her how my lips were doing and if I needed to re-apply. NOPE! Not once! It stayed put the entire time and even after!

When taking photos, it's so nice to have a lip product that stays put. When you've already got a camera, multiple articles of clothing, shoes, purses, etc. that you HAVE to bring along, it's good to know you can leave your makeup bag at home!

Another thing that I LOVED about the product was that when changing outfits I didn't run the risk of accidentally smudging it on my clothes - ruining my face and my fashion!

 
 

The weather in Nashville has been very chilly this week - it's definitely fall and I've been pulling out some of my fall wardrobe. My Napa LipSense pairs perfectly with everything.

It's bold but not too bright and is a great transitional color moving into the cooler seasons!

Ladies, I would highly recommend contacting Colleen and getting yourself a tube of LipSense. The product is great and Colleen did a wonderful job of looking at my photos and determining a color that would work well with my skin tone! It is absolutely water-proof, smear-proof and kiss proof (my sweet boyfriend appreciates that) and with just a little gloss reapplication, it stays put through morning coffee, lunch meetings and into the evening hours.

Visit the links below to contact Colleen and follow her on instagram at @Blow_Me_A_Kiss_55 to get more information and your very own tube of LipSense - and let her know I sent ya!

XOXO,

A
