Hey girl! If you follow my blog for a while, you’d know I’m a makeup lover. I love fashion, but I also love beauty and especially lipsticks. I’ve been trying this LipSense product for a month now and I could not wait to tell you all about it. It is seriously such an evolution that changes the lip game for me and I’m sure for many girls too. I wanted to make sure to really use it long enough before this post. I wore it EVERY DAY for the past weeks (and post a couple selfies here on my @withkisseslilyrose account, make sure you follow it). And since the first day I tried it, I haven’t looked back. So here is my LipSense experience in the past month.
What is LipSense and what are the benefits?
LipSense is the original lip long-wear color that lasts 4-18 hours. It is smudge proof, waterproof and kiss proof. Yes, you read that right, 100% waterproof and smudge proof. That means you can literally wipe your mouth on a wedding dress and it won’t move. Remember the days when you have your morning coffee, and your lip color is all over the mug, or when you kiss you boyfriend/husband and there’s lip stain all over him? Or worse, remember when you apply a dark color and have to periodically check your teeth to make sure there isn’t lip color on them? Well, I don’t remember those days, cuz my lipstick is better than yours and it actually stays on my lips! 😉
LipSense does not dry out your lips as you may think. It works to restore the moisture content. It also provides a natural shield from the sun. The skin your lips are protected from the sun’s rays by the color pigments, therefore your lips become so smooth and soft with consistent use of LipSense. If you’re worried about the ingredients, LipSense lip products are gluten free, wax free, non GMO, lead free and are never tested on animals!
Personally, I’ve used this product consistently for a month now (week days and weekends), and my lips are never dry. Even when I’m not wearing the lip color, my lips feel moist and plump. And it’s a lip color that lasts all day long, even if you’re at a water park all day, that makes me even more in love with it.
How to apply?
First, make sure your lips are clean and dry. Do NOT use Chapstick or any other product prior to applying LipSense as it will not work. Shake your LipSense horizontally to distribute the product evenly. This product is applied using a layering technique and here is the way that is recommended by LipSense creators on how to layer it:
Step 1: Begin applying at the corner of mouth, (usually) using the longest length of the applicator. Keep lips apart, and follow the natural shape of lips starting at the outer corner of the mouth. With one continual stroke, apply one layer from one corner to the other corner. Apply in one continuous direction, do NOT go back and forth like you would with other lipsticks.
Step 2: Repeat Step 1 two more times, so that you have a total of 3 layers (it’s best to have 3 layers, no more and no less). Let each layer set for a few seconds before proceeding to the next, and do not press lips together yet.
Step 3: After the third layer and the color has set, apply one of the LipSense Moisturizing Glosses. Now you’re free to press your lips together to smooth in the moisturizing rich gloss. Enjoy the glorious look and feel of this long-lasting, advanced color technology!
LipSense colors can be removed by using Ooops!™ Color Remover.
I personally find this to be almost impossible to do perfectly. I’m not used to starting from corner of my mouth, in one stroke, make no mistakes and go to the other corner. The key to applying LipSense I find, is that do NOT go back and forth like you would a normal lipstick. So as long as you go over the lips once each layer, it doesn’t matter if you start from one corner or if you start from the middle of the lips. So feel free to start from the cupid’s bow if that’s how you normally apply your lipstick. Then in one stroke go to one corner of your lip. Repeat to go to the other corner. Then the easy part is the bottom lip, which I find applying from one corner to other isn’t as challenging. I hope this makes some sense, as I know it could get tricky to apply LipSense flawlessly.
Another tip is that if you accidentally go outside of your lips a tad bit, wipe the mistake quickly while it is still wet. If you wait too long and it’s dried, you’ll need to use the Ooops Remover to correct the mistake.
How much is LipSense? What is a Starter Kit?
If you are a first time LipSense user, I highly recommend you get a starter kit. A Starter Kit comes with a LipSense Lip Color of choice, a LipSense Moisturizing Gloss and an Ooops! Color Remover for $55. The color molecularly bonds with the lips. The gloss seals the color in and moisturizes. And the remover is to get the color off and nourish your lips.
Once you have your kit, you can then feed your obsession with $25 for each color and $20 for each gloss. Not only does each color last up to 18 hours each wear. But also each bottle is worth 4 tubes of regular lipsticks! So even though this may sound like it’s expensive, you get more bang for your buck. Because a LipSense color lasts forever.
