Modest Monday and a Link Up!

Happy Monday! Last week was a long week with my three oldest children sick. My oldest normally washes most of the dishes as his chore, so I was in the kitchen a lot more than usual trying to keep up with the dishes! They all had high fevers, but really no other symptoms. They are getting better, but I still stayed home from church with some of them, to give it a full 24 hours since they last had a fever.

It made me remember what my days were like before I had older children that can help. I miss the days when I just had a few little ones, I would love to go back and do things a little differently. But it’s so nice to have children old enough to carry a conversation with, and to have helpers!

I wore this snuggly cardigan with this new shirt I just got from JCPenny. The cardigan is from Stitch Fix and I’ve gotten good use out of it!

A blog reader sent me some LipSense to try, and I thought some of you might like to know about it. She told me that the LipSense stays on all day long, but I was skeptical that I would really like it. So far I actually do like it a lot!

You apply it in the morning, and then put a gloss over it. By evening it looks almost the same color, and that is after I’ve eaten three meals, had a lot of water to drink, kissed on my baby all day, and of course my husband! 🙂 It doesn’t come off, and I just put more clear gloss on 2 times each day. I leave the gloss in the bathroom and just put it on when I go in there.

I would like to get a little brighter red color, but I really like the concept. If you wear only organic makeup this probably isn’t for you, but if you are looking for a lip color that stays on all day you should give this a try!

Just a warning, it really burned the first time I put it on! The second time I put it on I was ok, but I wasn’t prepared for it burning.  The SD 40 cosmetic grade alcohol is in there to kill bacteria that gets in the tube and to bond color to lips. It just means that my lips were dry, but it won’t always burn.

The LipSense is $25 each and I was told it will last 4-6 months. The gloss is $20 and will last 2-3 months since you put it on more than once a day. Not super cheap, but not crazy expensive if you love the idea of only putting on a lip color once a day!
