We all need a lip colour that will last throughout the day. A lip colour that does not smudge but pops its beautiful pigmented colour. Imagine every time you choose to eat and drink and all that lip colour keeps rubbing off. I hate that! Especially after just taking a sip of coffee or tea only to see that the mug is stained with lip colour.
I recently came across a day that I will have minimal effort to do touch-ups to my makeup. I still had the chance to eat and drink but not to touch up my makeup. As a matter of fact, I couldn’t even bring along my makeup with me since I had nowhere to store it. I had the opportunity of participating in the St. Maarten Carnival Parade 2017 and for an event like this, it is impossible to be walking with a bunch of attachments. You just want to be free on that day, so that you can better show off your costume and have fun in the parade.
While doing my makeup a lot of thoughts came to mind; what lipstick should I wear? Which brand lipstick or shade that I know for sure will last at least 8 hrs? on my lips before fading? These are some of the questions I thought of before I prep my makeup for the Carnival Parade.
Lipsense 18 hours Staying Power Lip Color
I was recently introduced to LipSense by SeneGence. Lipsense lip color is a premier product of SeneGence. It is being described as a long-lasting lip color that is waterproof, does not kiss-off, smear-off or budge-off and stays on for up to 18 hrs. LipSense lip color is available in a variety of textures such as frost, matte and shimmer and different undertones such as yellow-based/warm, neutral and blue-based/cool. For proper use or first-time users, it is recommended to purchase the LipSense collection in which you will receive a Lip Color, Moisturizing Gloss and the LipSense Ooops! Remover.
- LipSense Lip Color $25 .25 oz/7.4 mL
- LipSense Moisturizing Gloss $20 .25 oz / 7.4 mL
- and LipSense Ooops! Remover $10 .25 oz / 7.4 mL
How to apply
The LipSense lip color should be applied to dry, clean lips. Prior application to lip, shake up the tube very well, as the colour separates from the wand applicator.
Move the applicator in one direction by using a sweeping motion over the lips to apply the lip color.
Apply 3 layers of the lip color for a long-lasting result. Allow the color to dry between each application.
Then add a layer of the moisturizing gloss on top to finish off and keep color lasting and lips moist.
For Touch Ups
By any chance, if you need to touch up a spot or your waterline during the day, it is recommended to remove the gloss and ensure that lips are dry. Then, apply 2-3 thin coats of LipSense Lip Color where needed. Allow it to dry and finish off with LipSense Moisturizing Gloss.
For a Customize Lip
LipSense Lip Color can be customized to your very own unique look. Simply layer on different shades of lip color to create the ombre effect of your choice.
How to Use the Remover
By using a wet washcloth wipe your lips to fully removed the gloss and it allows lips to dry. Follow up with the Ooops! Remover, apply generously over lips; keep the mouth open. Allow it to sit for about 30 seconds before removing. This need to be done since some colours are darker and the lip colour was layered up to 3 times.
After 30 seconds, rub lips together for another 30-45 seconds to help break down the color on lips.
Use a warm washcloth and wipe away products on the lip. Repeat if necessary.
My lip is very sensitive. On my first application of the LipSense Lip Color I find that it tingled, plumped and my lip had a burning sensation. To avoid further damage and for precaution measures, I did not proceed with completely applying the product. I just did one layer and took it off. From the looks of the product, I can guarantee that you will have a long-lasting wear if you apply it as recommended.
Regular makeup remover will not get the lip color off, so you will need the LipSense Ooops! Remover. The Ooops! Remover has a very pleasant scent and it does a good job of removing the lip color.
