When I was approached to test out Lipsense, I was completely unaware of how quickly I would learn to rely on this magical potion! A lipgloss that doesn't smudge on your wine glass seemed like an impossible task, but with Lipsense you leave no color residue on your glass, it's wateproof and protects your lips from the sun!

Working in wine you really can't go crazy with make up, hair and nails... I mean you can but it's just not practical. Wine is a sensory experience and wearing perfume, or using smelly hair products can really distrupt the bouquet you are trying to sniff out of the wine ! In addition, too much makeup just isn't practical for a day of work, however Lipsense and a little tinted moisturizer go a looonnng way AND they give your skin a much needed break!

I really enjoy the connections I have made on Instagram as of late. It really is a community of positivity and love for one another. We are all doing our own thing, but helping promote eachother and I really love that! I was especially excited when Heather of @BeautyBarSecrets reached out to introduce me to Lipsense. I decided to try it out on my latest trip to New Orleans. It was the perfect time to try something like Lipsense, I never had to reapply my color, it stayed on all day and my lips were soft and moist from the clear gloss. If you haven't visited New Orleans, or the French quarter before, I definitely suggest going, however the reason Lipsense was perfect, your drinking and eating so much any normal product you'd have to reapply every five seconds, not Lipsense though! It was awesome.   

The great thing about Lipsense, I've found something that works perfectly for my lifestyle and allows me to look more put together. A friend I once worked with would give me a hard time and say "Mal, don't you want to wear a little lip, some mascara, or maybe a little hair curl?" And I would laugh, cause I knew she had only the sweetest intentions and her delivery was hilarious ! I've just never been one to go full hair/make up on the daily and I'm okay with it! I got it from my momma who does no make up ever and is the most gorgeous woman ever :)

My favorite color "Napa" looks like red wine with a hint of pink to it, so not too dramatic. Your favorite berry hue !
