Or have seen words on Instagram associated with lip stick like Roar, Breadwinner, Reign, Promotion, Persistence, Maven, Unbreakable, Determined, Confidence, Fearless, Explore and Ruler.
Being skeptical of anything that claims to be the best, I didn’t trust myself to test it because I am not a big lip stick user so I bought a few tubes in the pre-launch and sent them to Jamie Harrington from Totally the Bomb and Kaleigh from here at Poise & Purpose.
And then I asked them how it went…
Jamie couldn’t stop raving about it. In fact, the pre-launch was only 4 colors and she asked me at least 100 times in the 2 months between the pre-launch and launch when we get more colors. She reports that it has spoiled her and she won’t wear any other lip color especially the darker shades. Her comments included that she appreciates how PowerLips is NOT sticky. Once it dries, anything brushing over it (like her hair) just glides on without getting stuck. Another thing she loved was how long-lasting it ACTUALLY is. She had a situation last week where she was in a hospital waiting room for nearly an entire day. She put PowerLips on in the morning before leaving the house and then was surprised to walk by a mirror around 9 pm that day and still see her lip color lasting much longer than her energy.
Kaleigh (as you know) is the ultimate critic of all things makeup related, so it made me just a little nervous to get her opinion. When I asked her if it was “really that good” her reply was “YES!” Wow. She appreciates the lack of harsh alcohol smell or taste which aligns with PowerLips ability to moisturize lips during the day which puts it way ahead of the popular competition. In fact, PowerLips has a “weightless formula contains a blend of skin-nourishing ingredients, like avocado oil, beeswax, and vitamin E to hydrate, nourish, and prevent damage.
She created this video from her experience:
OK, this story ends with me. I have never worn dark or bright colored lipstick because I am not very coordinated! It always tended to end with most of the color on my glass, my shirt or in my hair. This experience has made me wary of trying new brands because by mid-day I am either searching for a way to remove the remainder of the color or Googling how to get it out of my clothes!
I started with Maven. It was darker than I have ever worn before, but I really liked the way it looked. The entire day went uneventfully ending with my lips looking lovely! I tried Breadwinner. Same thing! I tried Ruler. Same thing! Not only do they wear in a very low-maintenance way all day, they are easy to apply.
It seems like each PowerLips color I try becomes my new favorite.
If you would like to try PowerLips, it is easy to grab a shade you want to try. Click over to the Poise Shop and choose! If you are not sure which to try first, I would suggest Maven.
