EyeSense Colours!

I am so excited to show you guys these picture perfect EyeSense looks showing all 5 of our currently available shades.  Senegence currently had 2 permanent range EyeSense's with Black Brown and Black shades available in the full line. The Black is a little more severe while the Black Brown is more subtle for softer looks. Both are beautiful and interestingly, have been recently reformed.

The new black is a reformulation from apparently a really old one that used to sting. This one still has alcohol but doesn’t sting. Both the Black and Black Brown contain alcohol. The three limited editions shown here are Gilded, Ocean and Starry Sky and none of these have alcohol.

I currently have all 5 available but as the three are limited edition, if you want those, I would suggest ordering soon!

What's in LashExtend?

LashExtend is not formulated with drugs like prostaglandin or prostaglanoids made to treat ocular conditions found in other lash growth products. Some experts say these ingredients may have long-term side effects.

Unlike some of the other formulations offered in the market, LashExtend is safe to use as there are no drugs and no concerns of long-term side effects in our formulation. We also have supporting clinical studies to substantiate these statements.

SenePeptides-17: stimulates hair growth.

Glycerin: a solvent, an emollient and humectant that helps keep moisture in the cream and helps the product to spread better across a surface-reducing drag and pull. Nontoxic, non-irritating and non-allergenic to the skin.

Camellia Sinensis (White Tea) Extract: proven effective in boosting the immune function of skin cells and protecting them against the damaging effects of the sun.

Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Extract: a herb that has been shown to have anti-irritant, soothing and anti-oxidan…

All About: LashExtend

LashExtend helps to grow 25% longer lashes after 2 weeks of use without the use of harmful drugs, without harmful side effects and without the need for a doctor’s prescription. This product was formulated for those customers who are clamouring to grow longer, fuller natural lashes and throw away false eyelashes worn because of ever-thinning and breaking lashes.

Only recently has it been possible to market a cosmetic product which can make eye lashes grow in a substantiated controlled manner that has been published, peer-reviewed studies. The test subjects ranged from 25 – 82 years old and it was used once a day. Hair growth in-vivo DATA proves a 25% increase in hair growth, for thicker and longer eyelashes with one application a day to lashes, after only 2 weeks of use.
SeneGence’s LashExtend is formulated with patented SenePeptides. These are a series of isolated active peptides with anti-ageing hair growth properties. They stimulate gene expression causing increased keratin producti…

What's in LipVolumizer?

LipVolumizer is made of a combination of complex ingredients. The key components and uses are as follows.

Volumizing Complex: a complex of proprietary ingredients (peptides and botanicals) that helps build the collagen matrix structure and increases moisture content of the lips.

SenePlex Complex: kinetic enzyme that increases cellular renewal.

Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter): a plant lipid which prevents moisture evaporation from the skin and provides lubrication to the skin’s surface.

Portulaca Pilosa (‘Kiss-Me-Quick’): a plant with specific peptides that help boost the collagen matrix production and other ingredients to increase moisturisation of lips.

Simmondsia Chinensis: acts as a moisturiser and emollient agent to improve the skin elasticity and suppleness to minimise oxidation and lipid pre-oxidation.

Camellia Sinensis Leaf: protects collagen from being broken down.

Sesame Seed Oil: an antiviral and anti-inflammatory agent; contains sterolins, which are valuable moisturisers and sk…

All About: LipVolumizer

LipVolumizer works to plump lips from the inside out with the most advanced and natural technologies designed to support lasting results of full, pouty lips. It is shown to increase lip volume up to 20% and increases lip moisture up to 54% within one month of daily use. This is a great alternative to lip plumping injections and much safer and less invasive.
Excessively thin lips are sometimes a source of frustration for certain women since the symbolic value of luscious pouting lips is great.Lip volume and texture do matter. Clearly delineated plump lips are synonymous with youth and sensuality. Often seen as a seductive feature, the smile illuminates the face.

Continuous movement, subjected to repeated stress (cigarette smoking, pouting, ultra-violet radiation, dry air), gravity and chronological ageing all contribute to why the lips are deformed and change shape. With age, the harmony of the mouth is impaired. Both the upper and lower lips droop and appear less full.

Ageing of the l…

Upselling Tips!

Upselling is a great way to have people spend more money as they are already placing an order. There are a few things that are important to know about it that will help everyone be successful, especially during holiday seasons and special occasions.

1. It has been shown that customers will purchase the upsell 33% of the time. So if you ask 10 people, 3 will actually say yes. That means it's okay to have people say no! Don't be afraid.

2. Upselling works well because the customer is already in the buying frame of mind. Don't ask before they have decided on which products to order. Wait until they have given you their order and then ask them if they would like to add on 'x' product because it does blah blah blah for them. For example, if they are purchasing a Starter Kit, would they like to swap out the Ooops! Remover for Fooops! Remover instead because it can remove so much more, as well as LipSense.

3. Having a low point of entry to a higher cost purchase works bet…

10 Simple Steps for a Day to Evening Look!

One of my favourite things about makeup is that they can take any look from a simple daytime look to a stunning evening glam in just a few minutes. Here are a few easy and quick steps to do just that!

Change clothes! Add jewellery. Style your hair (I brushed and straightened).Remove any current LipSense and apply a new bolder colour with a speciality gloss.Blot your face of shininess and touch up with concealer. I use either Candlelight ShadowSense or Concealer in Light. Create a cute eye look with ShadowSense. Coat your eyelashes in mascara using LashSense. Add highlighter and contour with ShadowSense. I love using Pink Opal Shimmer and Moca Java. Finish with blush using BlushSense (in Pouty Pink or Pink Berry) or ShadowSense (in Mulberry). Perfect your brows. Use ShadowSense or BrowSense.

Senegence Night Time Routine for Acne Prone Skin!

My night time routine has become a lot more detailed over the past few months. Before Senegence I used to wash my face and apply my prescription medication but now it's had a few more products added in. I'm still quite basic and there aren't a huge tonne of products but there are defintely some.

I start by brushing my teeth and as all the makeup I wear is waterproof, it stays on! I then put on a thick layer of Ooops! Remover on my lips or a layer of Fooops! Remover all over my face. The removers get the makeup off really easily but the tip is to let the product sit for at least a couple of minutes. It's at this point I tie my hair up and put on my pyjamas.

I use my makeup eraser flannel to take off all my makeup. I find it super easy to use just with warm water and it's so soft, it doesn't hurt or scratch my delicate skin. Some flannels can be super painful, especially when I large active acne at times. I begin going over my lips to get my LipSense off and then…

Senegence Everyday Makeup for Acne Prone Skin!

As you may no, I have struggled with acne for a long time. I have had a hard time and been incredibly self-conscious over the years but Senegence makeup has provided a way for me to feel at least somewhat more confident in my skin.

I thought I would quickly share the products I use for my simple everyday makeup. I try to keep it as quick as possible for those days I'm in a rush.

I start with my skincare which is very similar to my night time routine so I won't go into that but then I finish with my moisturiser. While I can't wait to try Senegence's moisturiser, I still have lots of my previous one left so I use Olay Daytime moisturiser in Sensitive. I then let that sit or 10 minutes before starting my makeup application. In this time I tend to get dressed and pack my lunch for the day.

It's funny because since I've filmed this video, I've actually changed how I apply my makeup a little bit so I'm going to write how I do it now, but you can watch the vid…

Valentine's Day!

If you don't subscribe to me on YouTube you may have missed my most recent video showing my top 5 picks for Valentine's Day. Well I know not many of you do so I thought I would share some exciting news with you over here as well!

Valentine's Day is quickly approaching and it's all about love. Reds and pinks are a must this time of year and so for every LipSense lip colour bought in pink or red shades, I am giving you 10% off your purchase if you quote 'YOUTUBE' before the 14th February. Not only that, but you can also get 10% off if you purchase any starter kit using the same principle.

There is no better time to buy if you're a first time customer because this is such a good price. If you want to order, message me on any of my platforms but it's easiest if you email me or message me on my Facebook Page. If you leave a comment, make sure to leave your email address or sign up to notifications otherwise you won't see my response!

What's in EyeSense?

I shared all about EyeSense a while ago now but I never shared the ingredients so I thought it was about time I shared the main ones and their benefits!
Denatured Alcohol: used as a delivery system for the colour technology and creates a germ and bacteria-free environment.

PPG- 20 Methyl Glucose Ether: helps increase smoothness of application and humectancy performance of product.

Dimethicone: silicone oil used as a skin protectant.

Hydroxyethylcellulose: a modified cellulose (chief constituent of the fibre of plants) used as a binder, emulsion stabiliser and thickener.

Silica: used as a thickening agent in cosmetics.

Sun Protection and our Mechanical Shield

Our cosmetics products do not contain a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) but they do contain a mechanical shield which is equivalent to SPF 15. This is buildable, so the more product you use, the higher the SPF equivalent. For example, if you wore a Daytime Moisturiser, Light CCTM and MakeSense Original Foundation, you would have the equivalent of SPF 45.

There are a number of ingredients that afford sunscreen capabilities, for example, algae or orchid. If you are questioning the active ingredient that is a considered sunscreen ingredients, you are probably referring to the ingredient that the FDA has classified as sunscreen. Titanium Dioxide would be the ingredient found in our foundation. Which is why we can't say it is a sunscreen and say it acts as a mechanical shield. They also contain Octyl Methoxycinnamate and Benzophenone as UVA and UVB sunscreens.

The phrase mechanical shield simply refers to the physical barrier that prevent the sun's rays from penetrating the skin. Our p…

What's in MakeSense Colour Correcting Tinted Moisturiser?

Camellia Sinensis (Tea) Leaf Extract: protects collagen from being broken down and reduces UV induced inflammations.

Yellow Iron Oxides (Mint/Green): pigment shade that helps to camouflage redness.

Caprylhydroxamic Acid: maintains unionised state in acid to neutral, strong inhibitory mould and it can take the place of traditional preservatives when applied to the cosmetic.

Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891): an inert earth mineral used as a thickening ingredient and sunscreen in cosmetics as it protects skin from UVA and UVB radiation and is considered to have no risk of skin irritation.

Phenethyl Alcohol: an aromatic alcohol in a variety of essential oils an…

All About: Spot-On Blemish and Acne Treatment

SeneDerm Solutions Spot-On Blemish and Acne Treatment is the effective solution to help reduce the appearance of blemish and acne spots on skin. It is formulated with a powerful anti-acne agent. It is the perfect targeted “spot remover” and works directly on unsightly blemishes to clear them up quick.
The main active ingredient is Benzoyl Peroxide (BPO) at a powerful 10% concentration. This hardworking pimple fighter has been proven effective in treating acne by killing the Propionibacteria acnes bacteria responsible for outbreaks. However, irritation is a common problem when BPO is not dissolved or delivered effectively.

In response to this irritation problem, Dimethyl Isosorbide (DMI) was designed to help dissolve actives in formulations and prevent its re-agglomeration. This increases the efficacy of BPO by limiting its particle size to better target the pores and eliminate the source of acne.

By keeping the particles from re-agglomerating, it reduces skin irritation. It is general…

ShadowSense Trios!

Our ShadowSense products are so versatile and pigmented. Using the same colour technology as the rest of our makeup range, they are long lasting and waterproof shadows. I have absolutely loved getting to use them and learn which go together the best.

Usually, three is the magic number for ShadowSense. Three colours create stunning looks and while there are endless possibilities, there are quite a few I would personally recommend. When picking the three shades to combine you need to select a highlight, transition and contour shade.

Highlight: lightest colour of your eye look which is put under the brow bone, inner corner of the eye or right on top of the middle of the lid to finish of the eye look.Transition: to help you transition from the lightest shade to the darkest shade; this colour can go all over the lid, or in the sockets of the eyes. It can also go under your lower lash lineContour: this is the darkest shade your look; it can be used as your eye liner, on the lid or on the out…
