LipSense Fundraiser

I’ll be honest, a lot of the time I still feel rather young/immature as I continue to get older.  Maybe it’s my tees and jeans coupled with my 12-year-old sense of humor.  Recently I decided I wanted to try and be a little more adult like.  I made a list of a few things I wanted to do which I thought would make me feel more like an adult…hahahahaha.  You guys, this is really how my brain works.  Here was my list:

1.  Buy real winter shoes.  No more Toms without socks serving as my winter foot wear.

2.  Stop over-drafting.

Dear Brian, (our friend/banker)

I’m sorry I text you at least once a month proclaiming I’m just bad at adulting.  Thank you for showing me grace & mercy.  We’re a mess and you’re the best!

Love, Laura

3.  Try wearing dresses.  This pretty much never happens and I thought dresses would make me feel more mature.  I keep hearing about these Lularoe dresses.

And 4.  Wear lipstick.  I own one tube of crazy bright coral lipstick for costume/dress up parties/Harper’s dance recital and that’s it.  Bless.

So when Carrie, a kind blog reader, told me she sold a little lip goodness called LipSense I was intrigued.  I like to share things I really do believe in and genuinely like so when she offered to send me some to try I felt it was my adulting destiny.

I went with a more neutral color called Cappuccino because baby steps people, baby steps.  Here is my first thought on this lipstick.  I put it on at 7:30 pm because that’s what normal people do at 7:30 at night.  I then proceeded to sleep in it, exercise the next morning in it and then showered in it and after all that the color was still on my lips. I don’t know much about lipstick because hello, lipstick newbie here, but I felt like that was a little insane for the color to last that long.

I have since been wearing it everyday and I really really love it.  It’s super easy to apply and the color stays on for so long.  I do have reapply the gloss.  And sometimes I just roll on some regular chapstick to give the color a more muted sheen instead of a glossy gloss.

So I dig the LipSense and was on board with a fundraiser for November.

Here’s how this works:

Just head over the Carrie’s LipSense website where you can check out all the difference shades.  I love that she shows you 4 different women wearing the same shade.  Then place your order and 10% of your order will go towards our adoption expenses.  That’s it.  Crazy easy.

Bonus:  If you purchase one of their 4 brilliant reds, $5 will automatically go towards our adoption.

This fundraiser will run for the entire month of November so super fun Christmas shopping option.  And as always, please feel free to share.  The more the merrier as always.

Carrie’s site provides a ton of information about LipSense, but if you have any additional questions please feel free to contact her HERE.

And thank you to all the ladies who came out to the free Bible journaling class and to Rebecca for coming out and bringing all her Noonday goodness yet again.  It was too fun.  Don’t forget, you can still place your Noonday Collection order online HERE and our family will receive 20% of your purchase.  Abby Brosche will be listed as your hostess.  The last day to order online is this Wednesday, November 9th.  I might have picked up another strand of paper bead garland from Uganda and some awesome teacher gifts.


Hope you guys enjoyed your weekend.  I have a feeling this week is going to be good.

Happy Monday!

    I rarely wear lipstick and I’m way past adulting age. It just makes me feel like my lips enter the room about 2 minutes before the rest of me!
