Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you have heard of LuLaRoe and Lipsense. Or, if you don’t have a Facebook account, you may not have? Isn’t that the 2018 equivalent of living under a rock? Anyway, I happen to be a low-key* fan of both of these companies and let me tell you why.
(*My students have taught me that low-key is when you aren’t too terribly obsessive but just a little bit into something.)
I first heard about the LLR leggings on Facebook as winter of 2016 was approaching. I bought 3 pairs in person at a consultant’s home. I hated many of the patterns but I found 3 that I liked and they were the softest things I had ever felt. They are made of puppy licks or something like that. THOSE 3 PAIRS OF LEGGINGS GOT ME THROUGH THE COLD DARK WINTER OF 2016.
Here are a couple of my leggings in patterns I really like.
The next year I found out they had other items and it became too easy to purchase them because I met a new consultant close to my house. I can’t wear every style for my body type. I have 2 Carly dresses, 5 Cassie skirts, one maxi, one kimono, one vest, and a few Perfect tees in solid colors, and an unmentionable amount of leggings now. Some of the patterns they offer are the ugliest things I’ve ever laid eyes on. The prices are high for what they are IMO. I have fortunately gotten to take advantage of some discounts and I will say the price per wear on the items now that I’ve had almost everything over a year is good. (#girlmath)
The items I’ve purchased are comfortable and perfect for a teacher, without looking too teacher-ish. They have washed well and I have even put most things in the dryer.
This is the feather print of my maxi.
These are my Cassie pencil skirts. They are stretchy and I love my mustard solid and these prints.
Now on to Lipsense. I hate to waste money on makeup, but I have learned that quality makeup lasts. I like this stuff. It doesn’t come off on your coffee cup and the colors are quite beautiful. It is $25 ish dollars a tube, though. I have heard talk that one tube is equivalent to 4 tubes of regular lipstick. I don’t know if this is true. I don’t find the application to be difficult and I’m no makeup artist. You have to use three coats and follow with a gloss. If you get a chance, you should try it.
I have Aussie Rose, Praline Rose, Purple Reign, and Razzberry.
Do you have any LuLaRoe or Lipsense? How do you feel about shopping on Facebook?
I would love your recommendations!
