The one lip product you need for every occasion
I am finally back after a few weeks to talk about a LIFE CHANGING lip product! If you have never heard of LipSense, I highly recommend you check it out! It is a water proof, smudge proof, and kiss proof lip color that can last up to 18 hours. Sound too good to be true? That’s exactly what I thought until I tried it! Keep reading for a brief description on the product, how to apply it, pros and cons, and some tips for best application 😊
LipSense is a water-proof, smudge-proof, kiss-proof and lasts all night! It has a patented formula, for those wondering why other brands have not caught up to this yet. When you buy a starter kit, you will receive the lip color, gloss and a remover. The gloss is used to lock in the color. Without this, the color will come off everywhere so make sure to use this particular product to lock in the color! To remove the color, you must use the remover (otherwise it will not come off), which only proves that this color is extremely long lasting. For those of you who do not like a shiny finish, there are various gloss options that will help lock in the color!
Make sure your lips are free of all products. After shaking the lip color, apply a thin layer to both lips (make sure lips are stretched and tight so that the color doesn’t get caught in any wrinkles). Wait for the color to dry (about 3-5 seconds) and then apply 2 more layers in the same way, waiting between each layer. Then apply the gloss on top to lock in the color. DO NOT rub your lips together before applying the gloss because the color will rub off everywhere! To remove the color, apply the remover liberally on the lips. After 30 seconds, rub lips together and wipe off the color with a damp washcloth.
- Water-proof, smudge-proof, kiss-proof
- Time consuming application process
- Long lasting color (up to 18 hours)
- Color doesn’t always apply properly
- Extensive range of colors and glosses
- Concern over using a product that promotes long lasting color on a daily basis
I completely understand the concern over the time-consuming application process and using this product long term! I use this product as my secret weapon when it comes to big events! Who here hasn’t worried about lipstick coming off on their teeth, rubbing off on glasses, fading, smudging onto your chin if you’re eating a sandwich? This is the product for you! LipSense if perfect for dances, galas, work events, etc. I wore this product to a work event and did not worry over my makeup for a second! I applied it first thing in the morning, went through a day of eating and drinking and my lipstick looked exactly the same at the end of the day 😊
If you look up LipSense, you might read around that sometimes the color doesn’t apply properly or that it keeps peeling off. This is because the ingredients in LipSense put your lips through an exfoliation process. If your lips are dry or chapped in any way, the color will not stick properly. You need to ensure your lips are in prime condition to use this product (tip: the gloss you receive is the best way to fix your lips). When you purchase LipSense, you will receive all the details on taking care of your lips and the best ways to apply!
When you purchase LipSense, you will receive some tips on the application process but I thought I would go ahead and add in some of my own 😊
- Even though most people apply lipstick last because it can come off, I always apply LipSense first! If you mess up, it’s difficult to clean because you have to use the remover so apply LipSense first. Once you use the gloss, the color gets locked in and because this product is everything proof, you can happily apply the rest of your makeup without any worries!
- The gloss is inclusive of Shea Butter and Vitamin E, so I apply it at night to help repair my lips.
- Make sure to apply thing coats! The first coat might not look like you have put on any color, but I promise after 3 coats, the color is opaque.
- When applying, use one swipe and do not rub the applicator back and forth on your lips.
