You’ve been patiently waiting for your LipSense long-lasting LipColor, and finally, it arrives! (Yay!!)
Let’s be honest, you’re pretty darn excited to test it out! You’re curious to see what all the buzz is about; a long-lasting lipstick that stays on through eating, drinking, kissing, exercising, swimming, and other activities that would regularly smear and smudge your lipstick. But fear not, after looking through the following guide you’ll know how to put on LipSense and be able to experience the long lasting LipColor for yourself!
Clean Those Lips
One of the most important—and often overlooked—steps when it comes to applying LipSense is that your lips need to be clean. You’ll want to make sure your lips are clean and dry. For the best application, you’ll want to make sure you clean your lips very well, including the top corners, and remove all dry and dead skin from your lips. Using a washcloth, microfiber rag, toothbrush, or a scrub on your lips are all effective ways of getting your lips appropriately cleaned.
Shake It Up
The LipSense non-lead formula consists of very fine pigments and contains SD40 cosmetic alcohol. Wait, alcohol?! There is no need to worry! The alcohol not only helps LipSense LipColor last longer, it also serves as a sanitizer, assuring your lipstick is always ready to go! Together, the pigments and alcohol create a smooth, even color which is why it is important to shake well!
Three Layers Is All You Need
Before using the LipColor you want to apply, be sure you scrape the amount of color you don’t need back into the tube, as you are looking to apply nice and thin layers. Once you’re ready, going in one direction, apply the first layer of your LipSense LipColor across your bottom lip and then to the top lip in one motion. Applying LipSense in a back and forth motion will cause the molecular bond to break, which can cause your lipstick to smudge and get too thick. For the best application, it is best to wait five to ten seconds between each layer. It’s also very important to keep your lips dry during the application, so be sure to keep your mouth open to keep your lips from touching. Let’s break down each layer:
Layer One — Touches your lips’ PH and begins to break down first
Layer Two — The most important layer, having protection from both sides to keep the pigment in place
Layer Three — Serves as a protective layer, keeping layer two away from eating, drinking, kissing, etc.
Last but not least- top with Glossy Gloss. This is required and is what seals the color!
Amy’s Tip: If you experienced a slight tingling in your lips when applying, the moisturizers in the long lasting lip gloss will help! Also reapplying the gloss throughout the day, such as before and after eating will help make the color last even longer 🙂
Absolutely Stunning Lips
Once you’ve completed the steps above, CONGRATULATIONS! You just applied a lipstick that will last 4-18 hours! To finish, simply blot your lips together and start experiencing the long lasting magic of LipSense! It is important not to rub your lips together like you would with regular lipstick, as this can make the color come off quicker. If your lips become dry throughout the day, feel free to reapply the gloss over your lipstick whenever needed.
Taking off lipstick that lasts up to 18 hours may seem like a task you would originally dread, but removing LipSense is easy! There is our amazing Ooops! Remover which is part of our Starter Collections 🙂 The lipstick remover is great for erasing small mistakes or removing your LipColor at the end of the day. For LipSense removal using the Ooops! Remover, follow the simple steps below
Step One. If you applied gloss over your LipColor, wipe the gloss off your lips.
Step Two. Generously apply the Oops! Remover over the colors, making sure to cover every area that has the LipColor applied and let it sit for a few seconds.
Step Three. Rub your lips together. The friction caused by your lips will cause the LipColor to start coming off your lips.
Step Four. Gently wipe away any remaining color from the lips using a wet wash cloth.
Step Five. Be sure to moisturize with a LipSense gloss or, my favorite, the SeneGence lip balm.
