Move over, Kylie Jenner — there's another reality star selling lipsticks! On tonight's episode of Teen Mom 2, fans gained more insight into Leah Messer's job as an independent distributor for LipSense, a no-smudge lipsticks company in which independent contractors sell directly to consumers.
Previously, the 25-year-old was a consultant for Mary Kay, which has a similar strategy to LipSense. This time, however, the busy mom is also enrolled in classes at West Virginia State University, so she's certainly got a lot on her plate! In November, the reality star took to Instagram to reveal that she was accepted into college and explained that she wanted to set an example for her three girls, Adalynn Faith, 4, — who she shares with ex-husband Jeremy Calvert — and twins Aliannah Hope and Aleeah Grace, 7, — who she shares with ex-husband Corey Simms. She said, "I always said I would wait until all my girls were in school and then I would go. It's finally that time to finish what I want to pursue in my career and start the college life as a mom-of-three." Amazing!
In May, Leah posted a video with the lipstick and kissed a wine glass to prove it really was as smudge-proof as she says. She explained, "I just wanted to show you guys how it doesn't come off. It's literally the best lipstick you'll ever, ever, ever own!" TBH, we're sold. One fan commented, "Omg your[sic] so cute! Please post the list of lipies on Insta!" Another added, "I love, love, love my LipSense" and used the hashtag "#senesisters." Unfortunately for Leah, however, some are diehard Kylie fans. A third chimed in, "Nah, Kylie's lipsticks are the best." You can't please everyone!
Of course, Leah isn’t the only LipSense distributor. Other distributors noticed Leah's high social following — over 1.4 million, to be exact — and have been dropping their own business pages on her Instagram, hoping that some of her fans would buy from them too. Needless to say, this didn't go over very well with the star. In a separate Instagram post, she wrote, "Y'all I am SO excited to be a part of SeneGence and sell LipSense. I haven't felt this excited and motivated to succeed at something for a little bit now and I love all of the support I've gotten from you all. It means so much to me. But there are some things that really hurt... if you sell LipSense too that's so great! But my page is not a place for you to tag your business." We're so happy to hear that Leah is doing well these days!
