The ONE Stocking Stuffer You NEED This Year. | PLUS A GIVEAWAY

November 22, 2017 in #MomLife,giveaway,health,holiday gift guide,holidays,mommyhood,pampering,review,sponsor,style,tips + tricks

As a busy mom I often find myself doing my self-care routine on-the-go. I mean that quite literally. I’ve been known to keep my makeup bag in my purse so that I can do my makeup in the car, usually in the parking lot before going into work.

I know, I know… Lame, right? I mean, my makeup routine is this:

  1. Liquid Foundation.
  2. Blush Stick.
  3. Eyeliner.
  4. Mascara.
  5. Eyebrows filled in with pencil.
  6. And maybe a quick lip color that will dissipate in .02 seconds.

That’s it. It takes me all of 5 minutes, while my kids are finishing their breakfasts in the backseat, before I unload them and myself and head into work. By the time I leave work a mere 4-ish hours later, I’ve sweated off half of the makeup from a combination of lifting and chasing three year olds around gymnastics.

So when I was offered to try out Lipsense (a long-lasting and waterproof lipstick) from fellow blogger — and Lipsense distributorBeth, I jumped on board. Anything that further simplifies my already simple makeup routine is a win by me.

Well, I was blown away! There are so many colors and options AND it truly does NOT come off throughout the day! Yes, even after chasing around ten 3-year olds for three hours straight! 🙂 That’s a huge win! My favorite color thus far is Bella (pictured above), but I really want to try a bold red next!

And I’m totally gifting a starter set to all of my female relatives for Christmas this year! Who wouldn’t want a little fancy, no-nonsense, lipstick in their stocking, am I right?!

Want to try it out yourself? I’m hosting a giveaway for one Starter Set (Choice of color, Glossy Gloss, and Oops Remover) for one of my lucky readers! To enter, use the Rafflecopter widget below!

Not a tip, exactly, but I love those little Q-tips with makeup remover in them. They save my winged liner on bad days!

Never heard of Lipsense before! I need to check them out!

What the heck. I entered. I’m game. My makeup use is SO MINIMAL now that I have a toddler. Plus I have some eye issues which are preventing me from wearing mascara (which used to be my go to).

I’ve heard many wonderful things about lipsense. I’m currently in love with it!

My mom’s friend sales Lipsense and we have a love/hate relationship with the lipstick. My only complaint is that they don’t make matte, which is what I wear 90% of the time. It’s rare that I will wear a color with a gloss. My mom uses it often though.

Lipsense would make a great stocking stuffer!

I keep hearing great things about this lipstick and I’m starting to think I should give it a try. I just might have to put it on my Christmas wishlist this year.

I definitely need a lipstick that lasts long! Mine come off even before I am done applying! 🙁

I’ve been seeing lipsense everywhere! I haven’t tried it yet because I’ve heard that it makes your lips sting… is that true? I know it’s supposed to plump and last all day, so maybe that’s why? It sure does seem interesting, though!

What a wonderful giveaway and your makeup looks flawless. It’s a terrific stocking stuffer idea too.

I can’t even tell you the last time I wore make up, I’ve been hearing about LipSense for a while, might finally be time to take the plunge! I love that color on you 🙂

Great ideas here!

My favorite makeup tip would be to always use a face primer to avoid turning into an oil slick by noon. My favorite is Becca Ever Matte.
