When it comes to my lips, I’ve always been a lip balm kind of girl. I know, that’s super weird coming from me, since a full face of makeup is my “norm”. Lately, I’ve been hearing so much about a specific product-Lipsense (the lipstick that DOESN’T MOVE). Does it really stay put? What makes it stay on all day? How the hell do you get it off? I thoroughly tested this product for a little over a week, and I’m here to answer the question- “Is Lipsense worth the hype?”
What is Lipsense? LipSense is the premier product of SeneGence, and is unlike any conventional lipstick, stain or color. As the original long-lasting lip color, it is waterproof, does not kiss-off, smear-off, rub-off or budge-off!
For this review, I received “the kit” which includes the color, gloss, and remover. The color that I received is “Aussie Rose”, which is a cool toned pink with glitter flecks.
FORMULA: Color: I must say that I was a little taken aback by the formula at first. With an alcohol base, it has a very distinct smell. The alcohol IS cosmetic grade though, so don’t let that deter you from trying it. While the formula is quite thin, you are applying more than one layer (I’ll go more into that in a second), and the pigmentation is lovely. Gloss: I am absolutely 100% in love with the glossy gloss. The two main ingredients are Vitamin E and Shea Butter. Do I really need to say more here? I wear it every night, and it keeps my lips so soft and smooth.
APPLICATION: To apply Lipsense, you have to make sure that your lips are CLEAN. That’s one of the tricks. I use my LUSH Lip Exfoliator to remove any product or dry skin. It applies in three thin layers, waiting 3-5 seconds between them, and then topped with the gloss.
WEARABILITY:TEFLON STRONG. When I first received the kit, I swatched Aussie Rose on my hand. I did nothing to try and remove it while I went about my daily routines–which includes things like cleaning, washing my hands, showering. THIS STUFF WAS ON THERE FOR FIVE DAYS. FIVE DAYS, Y’ALL. Finally. I remember looking down at my hand one day and it was gone. Lipsense stays PUT. You can eat, kiss your babies, and still be good to go. The trick is to continuously apply the glossy gloss throughout the day. That helps to prevent the color from looking dull or from fading.
RE-PURCHASE?:The bottom line- Is it worth the hype? I think so. And trust me, I don’t say that about products lightly. I test and retest them to death. There are several colors that I’m eyeing already to purchase and add to my collection. As well as a few different glosses (they have a matte, pearl, and glitter gloss to name a few–in addition to the glossy gloss).
