I received Lipsense from Liz to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.
When I was younger, I loved wearing lipstick a it make me feel better about myself. I seriously wore it every day! Once in my 20s, I ended up forgoing lipstick because my baby would end up with kiss marks and my glass would too. However, the final kicker was the day that my lipstick wore off (sigh) and I was left with a clown looking face as my lip liner was still on full show. I was mortified when I went to the bathroom and looked in the mirror! So I was done. I swore off my beloved lipstick and went bare for many years. Till now. Enter: Lipsense!
What Is Lipsense?
If you’ve been hearing about the Lipsense craze but haven’t really looked into what it is, I’m here to share. This amazing premier product from the company SeneGence, is unlike anything I’ve ever seen. This original long-lasting lip color is waterproof, kiss proof, smear proof, rub proof, and will not budge off!
But Does It Really Work?
I have friends and family who have been using Lipsense for some time now and have heard some amazing things about it. Yet I still had some doubts. One friend said her lips got really dry and I just had a hard time believing that it wouldn’t wear off over the day. Call me Skeptical Sally! Turns out, I’m absolutely thrilled to say that I was completely wrong! I’ve been using my Legit Lips With Liz for a bit now and I love the results.
First off, Elizabeth was extremely helpful with me being a newbie. While I was planning to start with the Matte Gloss, she told me that new wearers tend to get drier lips from that as there can be an adjustment period. So she suggested I start with the Glossy Gloss. I took her advice and, even with daily wear, NEVER experienced the dry lips that my friend did! While the company states their lip color can last between 4 and 18 hours, I’ve found it to wear well for an entire day (8-12 hours) for me. That includes eating three meals, drinking lots of water, and maybe even a snack too. **One thing to note is that I am NOT a “lip licker” so I don’t know if that would affect results.
I love that there is a huge variety of patented LipSense Liquid Lip Color choices. Truly something for every like and preference. Plus, you can mix shades to create custom colors too!
How To Apply
- Clean lips with warm water and a cloth.
- Shake the Lipsense Color well.
- Wipe excess off applicator tip.
- Start on bottom lip and swipe from one corner to the other. One quick swipe. (Do NOT go back and forth!)
- Then go corner to corner on the inner rim of bottom lip (waterline).
- Next the top lip. Start at cupids bow and move down to one corner. Repeat to the other side of top lip.
- Give first layer 3-5 seconds to dry. Then repeat steps 3 through 6 two more times. Do NOT touch lips together during this.
- After final coat, apply gloss and rub lips together.
- Tada! Enjoy your smudge-proof lipstick. 🙂
While I though the application was a little intimidating at first, it’s truly simple!
Plus, if you need to remove any mistakes, want to change up your color throughout the day, or remove at the end of the day, they also offer an Ooops! Remover.
I’m in LOVE! To be completely honest, the price was originally a deterrent for me. However, now that I’ve experienced Lipsense, I’m completely sold. Even my mom, who is a self-proclaimed cheapskate, is wanting to give these awesome lip colors a try. Being in the professional business world, she wears makeup every day and having to reapply lipstick or deal with makeup mishaps isn’t a good use of time.
So if you’re on the fence, I’d say give Lipsense a go. They do not disappoint! I couldn’t be happier with the results that I’ve seen.
