So excited to announce that I am now a SeneGence Distributor (better known as the company that sells “LipSense”). SeneGence is a privately owned, network marketing company that is in the business of developing and selling personal care products through an independent sales network (aka ME). If you can believe it, in 1999 Lipsense made it’s first debut and was their premier product (only coming in 6 colors) and now SeneGence has a complete line of long lasting cosmetic colors (eye shadows, foundation, blush, mascara) and anti-aging skin care products (face creams, eye creams, self tanners, stretch mark reducers).

For me it all started with one tube of LipSense (Praline Rose to be exact). I saw all the hype on social media about this long wear, long lasting product that was smudge free, water proof, kiss proof, cruelty free and vegan, so of course I had to try it out and once I tried it I was completely hooked. This lipstick truly lasted a good 9 hours for me and all I had to do was apply the gloss to keep my lips moisturized throughout the day!

How It Works:

LipSense is not a stain; it is a patented molecular bond, meaning it sticks to your skin and that is why you have to have clean and dry lips so that the pigment can “stick” to your lips.

SD40 alcohol is the delivery system for LipSense. It’s much thinner than water. After you apply LipSense, the SD40 alcohol dissipates quickly, only leaving the color in place. It also keeps the product bacteria-free for the life of the tube which is unlike any other lipstick.

Typically, the first couple times you apply LipSense you may experience burning or tingling and that means your lips are dehydrated; the skin is damaged, leaving nerve endings exposed… So heal those lips and exfoliate as much as possible and apply the gloss, even when your not wearing the LipSense color!!!

The patent is in the color, it would stay on without the gloss, but the gloss is the moisture. There is no moisture value in the color, it’s system that works together. LipSense lipcolor is a mechanical shield from the sun (like wearing clothes on your lips).

How To Use:

Apply 3 coats to clean, dry lips. You can use the tip of the applicator in the tube to get the perfect “lined lip” first before filling in the rest of your lips. Your lips may tingle and they will be sticky, so don’t press them together until you apply the gloss, which is your lip moisturizer. LipSense will last on your lips anywhere from 4-18 hours (depending on the PH of your body), but the average wearing time is 6-8 hours. Make sure to apply LipSense Gloss throughout the day, as your lips will tell you when they need more moisture. One tube of LipSense will last 4-6 months on average if you use it every day.

Below are the Lipsense colors SeneGence carries. I have almost all of these colors in stock, feel free to email me your order, or send me a selfie in natural lighting and I am happy to color match you with your perfect color. If you haven’t purchased Lipsense before I always recommend purchasing the Starter Kit (includes 1 color, 1 gloss and 1 remover). Below is also a breakdown of all of the glosses SeneGence carries. Then I can ship it right to your door within 24 hours of your email! Make sure to email me at info@rochelleyork.com.

This past weekend I was on a mission to find dark denim high-waist shorts…but of course when I am looking for something, I find and WANT everything else but what I am actually looking for. So while shopping I found this mirrored effect floral printed dress at Forever 21. This new print is on trend and will continue to be well into Fall. I am even starting to see this “mirrored effect,” in swimsuits too!

I love this cut and fit because I can wear it with a blazer for work and take off the blazer for happy hour or a date night. If you are an online shopper and want to purchase this dress make sure to buy a size larger than you would usually be because it runs a bit snug.

Well, summer is officially here!!! It hit 100 degrees last week and today I am laying out by the pool and enjoying this beautiful Arizona weather while writing to all of you!

So in honor of the summer weather I wanted to show you a casual, fun summer look that can be worn on the weekend day drinking or at a bbq.

I love dressing up but sometimes it’s nice to be comfy and casual when it’s hot. But don’t forget to stay extremely colorful this summer because you will see lots of color out there in magazines, fashion blogs and watching House Wives of Orange County of course lol! 🙂

Field of colors, lace, crystals and tall models galore; that pretty much summed up my Friday night at JW Marriot Desert Ridge for the Massage Envy Fashion Show! This show was a grand production and I had an amazing time styling this show! Thanks to Phoenix Fashion Week for letting me style such a fun and colorful event!

For this show I was inspired by Massage Envy’s location color/theme…..PURPLE!!! So I wanted the color pallet to flow around the rich purple they use to trademark their name. (Shown Below)

All of the models in this picture are wearing looks from Dillards. The Saturday before the show I spent close to 3 hours in the Scottsdale Fashion Square location, pulling looks because there was sooo much to choose from (which is never a bad thing). What really stood out to me was the flowy dresses and tailored jackets and for the men I was drawn to board shorts and rolled up skinny’s for summer!

I also wanted to give a special “shout out” to the amazing style team that helped me backstage with a flawless show! I look forward to working with all of you again! 🙂

Spring is now quickly turning into summer weather and I wanted to check out the stores to see if I could find any transition pieces for my wardrobe. I recently went on a mini shopping spree at Tempe Market Place this past weekend and I found a crisp, white peplum rayon top at Divaz Boutique. This top inspired me to do a blog post on Work to Weekend Wear Looks!

It was the perfect temperature and weather for a rooftop fashion show in Phoenix. With over 250 guests supporting the Phoenix Children’s Hospital; everyone was dressed to impress including the amazing models.

I have never styled a fashion show on a rooftop before and now I don’t want to have it any other way because of how beautiful it was….but if you would ask me in the middle of July I would probably be perfectly fine with an indoor venue 🙂

I love this picture above because I am literally half the size of these beautiful bombshells I am styling <3. Backstage all of the models are wearing Shawl Dawls; I blogged about this designer back in January because I fell in love with their collection because there are so many ways to wear their shawls. Watch their new video below!

Here are some of the Shawl Dawl looks at the show:

Misty’s fun and unique location is in the heart of downtown Phoenix. If you are looking for a Louis Vuitton clutch to a sequin cap-sleeve jacket Vintage By Misty is your place! There you will also find Amir’s Va Loute!

I had the pleasure of working with him for MIM Rocks Fashion. His looks are very clean-cut and unique. I love his color pallets that he pairs with his prints and designs. What’s really cool about Amir is that he creates all of his designs in-house.

When I first started writing this blog post, I just wanted to talk about backstage but as you are reading…..it has turned into a lot more! I absolutely LOVE my job and LOVE what I do and LOVE who I worked with on this show and wanted to give everyone a little shout out! 🙂

JHaus Denim was really fun to style because I pretty much wanted every single item she designed; so it made it extremely easy to visualize what I wanted my outcome to be! JLynn (the designer) is amazing to work with and has such a kind heart! I was also lucky enough to be able to pull some fun tops from Clothes Minded Boutique! (Shown Below).

Last but not least I loved this look from Bounty Hunter! Who says only women can roll up their pants, guys are now doing it too! I also tell all of my male clients to always match your belt with your shoes and this is a perfect example! I loved the color of this belt and actually saw the belt first and paired the entire outfit around it 🙂

Dillards

I also wanted to give a special “Shout Out” to Dillards Accessory Department because they supplied me with all of the accessories in the Green Street Realty Show!

And as always thank you Phoenix Fashion Week!

I hope all of you had a great weekend!

I am so excited to be teaming up with Phoenix Fashion Week again on the Green Street Realty Charity Fashion Show this Thursday, April 18th at 7:30. I will be styling looks from Shawl Dawls, Bounty Hunter, JHaus Denim, Amir’s La Voute and Vintage By Misty.

What’s extremely exciting about the show is that 100% of the proceeds earned from the event and silent auctions will be donated to The Phoenix Children’s Hospital. This Spring into Summer show will focus on looks that will be on the runway; and then can be transitioned to your closet. You will see a lot of “ready to wear,” pieces from the designers and collections I listed above.

This weekend I started pulling looks from the show and saw myself steering towards a lot of stripes for men! Women have been wearing stripes all season and I love it. I recommend pairing stripes with a bright color. For example if you are wearing stripe leggings (black and white) I would pair them with a bright color top (like the picture shown below). She rocks this outfit and didn’t even have to accessorize that much! If you do not want to be that BOLD; you can pair a basic black dress with a stripe blazer.

I hope all of you can show support for Phoenix Children’s Hospital and come to the show this Thursday!

March Madness is in full effect! During the first week of March I celebrated my 2 Year Wedding Anniversary to the man of my dreams in Maui and as soon as I got back, I was asked by Phoenix Fashion Week to be a part of their “MIM Rocks Fashion Show,” featuring Top Stylists in Arizona. I am so very honored to be apart of such a prestigious and amazing 4th annual fashion show!
