SeneGence Lady: how I got there, and how I can help you

A few weeks ago I posted that I’d made the rank of Royal with SeneGence (the makers of LipSense). Now I’m sharing that I hit the next rank: that of SeneGence Lady.

SeneGence Lady

SeneGence acknowledges women who are working their business with rank achievements. Becoming a Lady means that I’ve brought a certain number of women into my team who I’m training to work the business as well.

This business has taken off faster than I ever could have imagined!

SeneGence Lady I got there

There is nothing special about me. I didn’t reach the rank of Lady because I have unique talents. The truth is, I just talk to people about this company, which I think is wonderful and unique in the industry.

Anyone can open their mouth and do that!

It’s also fun and rewarding to share the product line (which is impressive – the more I learn the more I realize this!) as well as to see the distributors I’m training blossom. At this point I have more excitement for what’s possible for them than I do for myself. It’s awesome helping others reach their goals and working with incredible, dynamic women!

And I realize that it may seem odd to talk more about the SeneGence business opportunity than the products on this blog.

I do plan on writing more about the product line, which I use and truly love.

But here’s the thing.

The business opportunity SeneGence offers is more powerful and life-changing.

Let’s talk stats. Did you know that over 85% of American families don’t have an extra $450 available for an emergency and would have to put that amount on a credit card?

This business can change that for a family. It’s certainly done so for me! My husband and I have 7 children living at home. Life is expensive!

Get in touch with me if your family would benefit from additional income. I can show you how SeneGence offers a solid opportunity for anyone willing to work. I don’t work my business full-time because I have all these kids… but I’m still growing my business every week. Let me know how I can help you become a SeneGence lady!

Lipsense Dry Lips: how LipSense healed my chapped lips and lip balm addiction!

My name is Carrie Willard, and I’m a recovering lip balm addict. I used to have several types of lip balm scattered around my house: one in each bathroom, one in the kitchen junk drawer, one in the car, one in my purse – sometimes one in my pocket! No longer. LipSense healed my dry lips and I never use lip balm anymore!

LipSense dry lips: how LipSense healed my chronic chapped lips

I’ve tried so many different brands of lip balm through the years. I even tried making my own or using straight up coconut oil. Didn’t work! I was so addicted, that I had even developed a bad habit of chewing the inside of my mouth when my lips felt dry.

It was after using LipSense for a week or two that I noticed something. I was no longer chewing my lips and I wasn’t applying lip balm. Glossy Gloss had healed my chronically chapped lips!

I couldn’t believe it at first, until I heard other people say the same thing. The Vitamin E and Shea butter in the LipSense Glosses is truly moisturizing. Instead of having a high wax content like other lip products (because it’s cheap!), Glossy Gloss is TRULY moisturizing.

You would think it would have sunk in at some point that the products I used to use on my dry lips weren’t effective – if they were, why did I have to constantly reapply them!?

Now, I only reapply my Gloss after I eat. I love it! Would you like to try LipSense for your dry lips and see if you have the same result? Contact me by leaving a comment below.

Welcome MoneySavingMom/Crystal Paine followers :-)

Yesterday my longtime blogging friend Crystal Paine of did an Instagram story about LipSense. I sent her Aussie Rose and she tried it and reviewed it there. I wanted to welcome those of you who clicked on over from there to this site and tell you a bit more about LipSense!

Crystal Paine MoneySavingMom LipSense review

LipSense is a unique, patented long-wearing lip color that stays and stays. As Crystal mentioned, she wore her color all day long without reapplying! And too she experienced the “tingle” when she first applied it. The reason some women have a tingle is because of the cosmetic grade alcohol in the product. LipSense is a liquid lip color with pure color pigments suspended in a liquid formula. The alcohol is there to help it evaporate quickly, leaving behind those color pigments, and to reduce bacterial content. Since a tube of LipSense is equivalent to FOUR regular lipsticks, it’s going to last a long time! We don’t use preservatives in the product, so the alcohol is there for that reason too.

Lipsense tingle

The tingle stops instantly when the Gloss is applied, and most women don’t have the tingle after the first few applications.

LipSense color is topped with Gloss. The gloss moisturizes the lips with Vitamin E, shea butter and other botanical ingredients, and seals the color in for all-day wear. The Gloss is why the LipSense system doesn’t dry out your lips the way other long-wearing lipsticks do!

Crystal also mentioned the price of LipSense – it is $55 for the Starter Collection for a new customer, which includes Color, Gloss and Ooops! Remover to fix mistakes or remove at night. Going forward, additional colors can be purchased for just $25. Since once tube of LipSense is equal to four tubes of regular lipstick and since it’s only applied once a day, LipSense is a great value. In addition, LipSense colors can be layered to create endless color combinations. If you have 3 colors, you can make 27 unique shades (the color is applied in 3 layers)!

SeneGence Business: Live Q&A Tonight!

How are you this Monday morning? I woke up excited because today I, along with a few members of my LipSense/SeneGence team are hosting a business Q & A session live on Facebook at 7 pm Eastern (that’s today, Monday June 26th!)

We’ll be sharing our stories – how our business is working for us, how we market our products, and the bottom line… INCOME!!

There are women on the team who just started days ago who are already watching their PayPal accounts fill up, as well as women who have been working the business for months who earn a solid full-time income.

Some of us do our business part-time and are stay at home moms, some of us have full-time careers we love but who do this on the side for fun or another income stream.

We all have different personalities and talents and styles, and we work our businesses a bit differently. But we’re all having success!

Join us! Go here to be added to the exclusive group:

I’m giving away a Starter Collection (valued at $55) to one participant. See you there!

SeneGence distributor income: what I earned my first month

The first thing most people want to know when they consider joining SeneGence (or any other direct sales company!) is this: what is the earning potential? What’s the typical SeneGence distributor income?

I have only been in the business for just over a month. I joined the last week in April 2017. So May was my first full month in the business. I recently tallied up the figures for my SeneGence income and was SHOCKED at the results. I didn’t quite realize how much money I was bringing in because, since I’m so new, I’ve made the decision to build my inventory and re-invest in my business instead of spending the money.

SeneGence distributor income: what I earned my first month

My first WEEK as a SeneGence distributor, I brought in enough money from retail sales to buy groceries for my large family (I have 7 kids so that’s not a small figure!).

My first full month in the business (May 2017), I brought in enough money to pay my mortgage TWICE (from my retail sales), and my commission check from my downline’s sales will be large enough to pay my mortgage again!

I’m thrilled with this after only one month in the business!

I shot a quick video below to talk more about this. It’s less than 10 minutes long. One of the reasons I’m so excited about my income as a new SeneGence distributor is sharing it with other women. I’m especially passionate about the stay at home mom who is struggling with money. If you know someone like that, please tell her about this! Thank you. 🙂

SAHM to WAHM: How to make a profit your first month in SeneGence

This post, from SAHM to WAHM, is addressed to the stay at home mom who needs extra income, but who may not have a lot of extra money sitting around to invest in a business. If that’s you, please read on, or share this post with a mom who is looking for a legitimate business that WORKS!

From SAHM to WAHM: how to make a profit your first month in SeneGence

I have a special place in my heart for stay at home moms. As a SAHM, you’ve made a choice that you feel is best for your family, but at the same time, puts you at financial risk. I totally understand. I’ve been a SAHM for almost 19 years! I couldn’t dream of leaving my babies with someone else for most of the day, but because of this, I often suffered financially and emotionally. I think women are far happier when they have something of their own outside of being a wife and mom, and paid work is so gratifying. It feels great to use our talents, skills and abilities in a way that is valued monetarily.

I know how many stay at home moms want to become work at home moms. But if you search for info on at-home jobs or businesses, you’re led down an internet rabbit hole that can be confusing and overwhelming at best, and dangerous to your finances at worst. You’ll find scams and unscrupulous people and companies that don’t have a real product. LipSense, on the other hand, is a high-quality product that women love.

So, I created this plan, which I call “From SAHM to WAHM“, to show a mom how she can start a business with SeneGence International, and get into PROFIT in her first month (or sooner) in business.

From S.A.H.M. to W.A.H.M.

I started my business as a LipSense/SeneGence distributor just over a month ago (you can read how I began my LipSense business here on my blog). During that time, the business has taken off faster and bigger than I could have imagined! As a blogger with 7 kids who also homeschools, I didn’t have a lot of time to devote to a side hustle, but LipSense interested me. I wanted to do something that got me out from behind my computer and this seemed fun. Plus, I love lipstick and fell in love with the product! I knew I could be proud to stand behind it.

So here is the document From SAHM to WAHM: a plan to get in profit your first month in SeneGence. You can right-click to download it and read it at your leisure, then email me at the address located in the .pdf.

The document presents a plan that is working for me and my downline distributors to make money with SeneGence fast. Whether you need to make a profit right away to help improve the family finances, or you’re able to reinvest in your business and build more inventory, this plan will help you understand how we work the business and support one another. There is so much wonderful training available to a new distributor, and she’s never alone as she builds a successful business.

LipSense tips for longest wear

For most women, LipSense goes on beautifully and stays on for hours. Rarely, though, a woman will experience some issues that need troubleshooting. Here are 4 LipSense tips that will get you the longest, loveliest wear. To get more tips and early notification of discounts and specials, join my Facebook group!

LipSense Tips

There are 4 common reasons why someone may not get long, beautiful wear out of their LipSense.

1) Applying LipSense too thickly

After you shake your LipSense tube, let it sit for a second upright. Wipe the excess product off so it goes back into the tube. You’ll save money and get a better application by applying 3 THIN layers. Thick layers are gloppy and runny and not even. Thin layers dry more easily. There should be NO COLOR on your Glossy Gloss wand at all when you apply it after LipSense. If there is, the layers are too thick and/or they need a bit more dry time.

2) Start with clean, DRY lips

Remove whatever’s on your lips (lip balm, Gloss, toothpaste, makeup that flecks off onto your mouth, food, etc) with a warm, damp washcloth or microfiber cloth. Start with a blank slate! And DRY lips carefully with microfiber or something non-linty.

3) Exfoliation issues

Those of us (cough cough ME) with severe chapped lips who, before LipSense, were addicted to balms, will go through a lengthy normalizing phase (for me, a month!) in which their lips may peel. This is good and normal! Speed it up by using SeneGence lip smooth lip scrub. Read more about peeling and flaking LipSense here.

4) Waterline issues

The waterline is that part of your inner lips that touch saliva. If you lick/bite/chew your lips, your lip color will wear off quick. Break these habits! (Note: I stopped chewing my mouth once I started using LipSense. I was subconsciously doing it because my lips were always dry and uncomfortable!) Dry your waterline well (with a paper towel or something non-linty) and tilt your head up (so the spit doesn’t pool) while applying, or do the SeneSlurp. LOL!

Since LipSense won’t come off on your teeth, it’s ok to get that applicator way in there! You can reapply LipSense to your waterline if it wears off, just dry it well first and make sure you’ve wiped off any Gloss.

That’s it! I want you to LOVE your LipSense and be a rabid fan who sends tons of customers my way (haha!) so please let me know if you aren’t 100% pleased and we’ll troubleshoot.

SeneGence Royal in Waiting: if I can do it, you can too

Two days ago, I posted that I had hit the rank of SeneGence Maiden. This morning when I woke up, my upline had posted that I became a SeneGence Royal in Waiting!

SeneGence Royal in Waiting

SeneGence Royal in Waiting

A few things are clear.

One, I need bangs. Seriously. How big IS my forehead?

Two, I’m not posting this to brag. While the recognition of hitting this rank from my upline is wonderful, that’s not why I started my business and it’s not what motivates me.

The reason I’m posting that I made Royal in Waiting in SeneGence is this:

If I can do this business, anyone can.

I’ve made so many rookie errors I can’t keep up with them. I’m not a natural salesperson, but I happen to have a product that women LOVE and is superior to what they are already using and that, when demonstrated, sells itself.

Three, if you know anyone who needs extra income or who loves lipstick, send ’em my way.

If I can hit the rank of Royal in Waiting and this income level, in ONE MONTH in this business, anyone can! I have 7 kids, we homeschool, and I already run two blogs. I don’t have any more spare time than anyone else. And right now, I don’t even have a car! (THAT is my motivation – the SeneCar program that will pay for a new car for me and my kids!)

The truth is, people are coming to me. Most of the distributors I have brought into the business asked ME to join. There is no hard sell here, no pushy sales tactics. The vibe and culture of SeneGence is chill, from the very top down. I love that about this company.

Email me or leave a comment for more information! Read more about how SeneGence is poised for massive growth, and how you can benefit, here.

SeneGence Maiden: I made it, and what that has to do with YOU

A week ago I became a SeneGence Maiden!

So you’re wondering, what does that mean and why should I care. Am I right?

SeneGence Maiden

SeneGence Maiden

A SeneGence maiden is a distributor who has brought 3 people into her team who are also working the business. The SeneGence maiden rank is the first leadership role in the organization’s structure.

I made this goal in only 2.5 weeks!

But there’s more. Today, just a week later, I brought in my 5th distributor, meaning that this month I’ll qualify as a Royal in Waiting, the next leadership position.

What does this have to do with you?

If you’ve ever done direct sales before and it was a failure, please read on. I had the same experience. As I share in this video, I was once involved with a company whose product line I believed in 100%. I used the products and they had helped my health. They had helped others that I knew and loved.

But that didn’t matter!

What matters in direct sales is whether OTHER people want to buy your product!

Despite working that business HARD for a very long time, I had no real success. I only got in debt buying the product!


I’m not telling you I made the SeneGence maiden rank because I want to brag. Truth be told, my distributors came to ME! It was easy and simple.

The difference with LipSense/SeneGence is this: almost every woman wears lipstick. And women who don’t wear lipstick find that LipSense solves the problems they experience (having to constantly re-apply, smudging, lipstick on teeth, etc).

By contrast, not every woman uses essential oils. Or wears leggings. Or uses natural health supplements and herbs. Or what have you.

But lipstick? The market is HUGE. And once women try LipSense, they are hooked! It’s simply superior to other products on the market.

So my making the rank of SeneGence Maiden in only two weeks does involve you. It means you can do this too!

If you have any interest, please leave a comment or email me at

I can’t wait to tell you more about it!

One of the best ways to choose among the LipSense colors is to break them into cool and warm tones. Which looks better on your skin? And then decide if you prefer matte, or a frost or shimmer. What lip colors do you already own and are they sparkly or no?

Let me know how I can help you choose one of these stunning LipSense colors! I typically ship same day if I hear from you before my mail runs. Don’t wait too long to get your hands on one of these gorgeous shades because they sell out quickly!
