I guess I should start this off by saying I’ve become a LipSense connoisseur, if you will. I mean, an obsession turned occupation it’s a win win right?! So, I wanted to talk to you today about the top five colors I sell.
I was going to write this post about my 5 favorite colors, then as I was looking through my vast collection I decided I’d have to at least do my favorite 15, possibly 20, and that article may be a bit too lengthy… Instead, I took out the good old inventory tracker I use and decided to do my top 5 best sellers. Woot woot! Let’s get started!
I know people normally save the best for last, but I cannot wait to tell you about Bella. It is neutral with a matte finish. It has a brownish pinkish tint and I truly believe this is a color made for everyone! This is my recommended first color for anyone just starting out with LipSense, as the application is easy and almost foolproof. Which, isn’t a bad thing when you’re getting used to applying LipSense.
This is a color for everyday wear as well as a color that you could put on for a night out on the town.
I like to pair to with my favorite piece of clothing, sweat pants, while I pick my son up from school; but if losing your sense of shame isn’t something that’s happened to you yet, my second favorite way to rock this color is with jeans, knee high boots, and a button down shirt. Think ‘feminine lumberjack’ with less plaid.
…I’ll stop you right there, it’s blatantly obvious at this point I could take off as a fashion blogger but, guys, it’s just not my passion.
2. Caramel Apple
Next we have Caramel Apple. When I first heard of this color I pictured it like the poison apple from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (my momhood of four is showing) Instead of the poison apple theme, this cool based color is a rosy red with just a hint of shimmer to really pep up your step.
If I had a job outside the home this would be my go to color for work. It’s a great color to complement the rest of your face without stealing the show. Overall I’d for sure give this color a ‘huzzah!’
Just dipping your toe into the LipSense world and not ready to make a huge SPLASH? Bombshell would be right up your alley! It’s a warm color with some shimmer in it. A soft nude with an orange undertone and a sprinkling of topaz.
This color is great for the days you wake up and you almost look like you could have the flu, but really it’s just your body’s reaction to being awake half the night because your kids, husband, or dogs just couldn’t take just how peaceful and calm you looked while slumbering.
It’s also amazing for layering to help tone down a color that may be a bit too festive for your liking. Bombshell has for sure become a staple in my color circulation.
You know the moment when you feel like summer has lasted just a bit too long, and you start daydreaming about bonfires and flannel? The feeling of that crisp cool air that fall brings in?
Well, while you’re wishing for fall to be here, this is the color you can wear when fall finally arrives.
Napa is a cool tone with a shimmer finish. I’d call it a deep berry with a whisper of pink. So get on your boots and puffy vests and get ready for a hayride!
If this color doesn’t put a hint of fall in the air for you nothing will. Actually, something else might—it seems a little dramatic to say, “nothing”, so I take that back…
5. Apple Cider
Last but not least let’s talk about Apple Cider. Yes, there are two on this list that begin with apple—they’re such different colors you will never get them confused.
Apple Cider is a warm tone with a matte finish. It’s a light peach (but not like a gross peach, a super pretty, calm peach) with a dollop of pink. This color is the sassiest of the 5 when it comes to application.
If not applied the right way, it can leave your lips looking cracked, and that’s just the truth. With a little extra love this color truly shines as the perfect color for everyday wear.
How do you make sure you’re apply this color the right way? You can order my online book now to find out!
Don’t you hate that when you’re reading an article and get all the way to the end and that’s what it tells you?! Don’t worry I love you all too much to ever do that to you. To make sure you’re getting the most beautiful application of Apple Cider, you need to make sure you’re shaking your bottle up like Shakira shakes her hips. I mean if they don’t lie why would I?
You also need to make sure you apply very thin thin layers. At first you might think you’re not applying anything at all, and you’re like “Omg this color matches my lips, why did I end up buying this?” When in all actuality by the time you get to the third layer, you will realize you’re amazing and made an excellent choice when deciding to bring Apple Cider into your LipStick family.
There you have it, my top five colors with amazing photos of my beautiful self to give you an idea of what these colors look like actually on someone. Although I will say that every color can show up differently on different people, which is why I’ve so generously added the extra collages. You’re welcome!
