My SeneGence Holy Grails

The 5 SeneGence Products that CHANGED MY LIFE.

Do you have perfect skin? I sure don’t! Up until recently I had a hard time wearing regular foundations, eye shadow, lipstick, etc. You see, I have combination skin, am prone to acne, and suffer from keloids (an overproduction of scar tissue). Needless to say, I’m a mess! Or at least I used to be. (With regards to my skin anyway :D)

8 months ago, instead of buying yet another Christmas present for my husband (shhh), I chose to buy one for myself and tried LipSense for the first time. It changed things for me when it came to lipstick, completely changed. A scarce month later I was obsessed and decided to jump at the chance to become a distributor with SeneGence International. Best decision ever, let me tell you why.

Not only did I finally find a lipstick that I was happy with and actually felt good wearing. I landed smack dab in the middle of product heaven it seems. Hydrating moisturizers and serums. Crème to powder shadows that don’t crease.  And of course lipstick that doesn’t budge. Heaven, I tell you.

So now I’m going to share with you my top 5 SeneGence products that have had the most impact on me!
  1. Climate Control. This is an anti-aging moisturizer for sensitive and dry skin types. “Hydration in the purest form…delivers pure SenePlex Complex, natural oils an beneficial ingredients or cellular repair to the skin at the deepest level.” Seriously, can it get any better than anti-aging, hydration and enhanced cellular renewal?

  1. SeneSerum-C. Proven to decrease the effect of the sun on the skin and actually prevent further damage. Pretty cool, huh? Well, here’s the problem. In liquid form (topical serums) vitamin c is unstable. This means that the longer the product sits around, the lower the potency when you actually use it. Our serum has stable vitamin c in it, and the capsules aren’t broken until the moment you pump it out to apply it to your face soyou are getting a fully potent and beneficial product.

  1. LipSense Gloss. Shea butter and vitamin E nourishes and conditions your lips. Helps to protect lips from the elements and repair dry, damaged or sensitive lips.

  1. ShadowSense. This product is so cool. Starting out as a crème, it blends and dries into a powder. With long-lasting properties, your shadow will last all day without creasing or flaking! And you can use this product to contour, highlight, accent, conceal, fill in brows, eyeliner, etc. It’s very versatile, and also contains the SenePlex Complex!

  1. Lipsense. Last but not least, is the mighty LipSense itself. Raise your hand if you have a conventional lipstick at home that won’t rub-off, kiss-off, smear-off or budge-off. Oh, and can you take 2 different colors and layer them to create 8 different custom shades?
So it’s pretty easy to see how these 5 products have changed things for me.

My skin still isn’t perfect, but there’s a world of difference between how it is now and how it used to be. My first bottle of Climate Control lasted me about 6 months, and I didn’t get a new one right away when it was gone. Oh boy was that a mistake! Immediately I saw how my skin was drier and I started seeing those patches of dry spots like before when I would apply foundation. As soon as I opened a new bottle I could tell my skin had been thirsting for it. I sure won’t make that mistake again!

Who’s in your squad?

If your squad and my squad went up against each other, who would win?

My bets are on my squad 🙂

If you’re new to LipSense, here’s the deal.  Color of your choice, topped with the moisturizing gloss accompanied by the secret weapon remover make a great team.  It’s hard to beat, seriously.

Picture this; 1 lip color worn every day lasting 4-6 months.  How about 2 lip colors worn interchangeably and layered together worn every day lasting 8+ months.  Sounds too good to be true, right?  Well, it’s not.

LipSense is a patented 2-part system.  The long-lasting lip color which is applied in 3 very thin layers is a cosmetic grade alcohol base. This formula is ideal, as the color pigments are suspended and when you apply the layer as the alcohol evaporates the color pigment is what’s left behind, bonding to your lip directly.  The reason you apply in 3 layers is why it lasts for so long.  Layer 1 is bonded to your lip and reacts with the ph in your skin.  The 3rd layer on top reacts to environmental factors, this leaves that 2nd layer sandwiched in the middle protected from both aspects and lasting all day.  After your lip color is applied, you top with the patented moisturizing lip gloss, effectively sealing in the color and providing hydration.  If you happen to make a mistake during application, the lip color remover fixes them effortlessly.

Now tell me, how do you think my squad would match up to yours?

Why LipSense?

Well isn’t that a loaded question! Why Lipsense. Well, it’s simple really, because it made me feel good. Let me take a step back…

I don’t actually know a lot about make-up and application. Shocking right, I’ll explain. Growing up, I never felt very comfortable wearing a lot of make-up, especially lipstick. Have you seen that picture floating around on the web that compares Anne Hathaway in red lipstick being how you think you look and Heath Ledger as The Joker being how you actually look? Well, it was the opposite for me. I felt like I looked clownish wearing a vibrant color like that, when it wasn’t actually that bad.

As I got older I’d go through phases of wanting to be able to wear lipstick. So I’d gear up, dust off my credit card, and buy a TON of new products. Not just lipsticks but eyeshadows, mascara, liners, foundations, the whole shebang. Guess how long it usually lasted? For the lipstick, a couple of days, maybe a week. I’d get all happy and have fun playing with it all, but the first time that would come up where I was going out in public, be it a weekend outing or a workday, I would start to feel self-conscious. Was my lipstick on my teeth? It’s an awful bright color, does it look OK on me? There’s so much of it on my coffee cup, has it smeared all over my face or is it half gone already?  It was endless. Then I found LipSense.

From day 1, it was different. Because this product stays put, it wasn’t all over my cups or my fingers. I stopped worrying. I stopped feeling so self-conscious about how it looked to other people. I started to feel good about the way I looked. I was able to start out slowly and gradually advance to bolder brighter colors. And I still felt good.  So good in fact, that I fell in love with the product and signed up to sell it. Me. The person who had next to no experience with make-up, and now I’m selling it.

The rest is history.
