I started hearing amazing buzz about this LipSense lip gloss last summer so when my friend reached out to me asking me if I wanted to try it and review it, I said YES! I have tried many lipsticks, stains, and glosses and honestly I’m not a huge wearer but what intrigued me about this product was it’s claim to stay on and not budge at all! In fact, they sell a “Ooops Remover” to get the stuff off! Long lasting lipsticks usually lasts about 3-4 hours on my lips and what I don’t like about them is that they make my lips peel or feel dry after every.single.use. I hate to feel like I’m biting or pulling at dry lips all day.
What is LipSense?
LipSense is a long lasting lip color that is waterproof and does not kiss off, smear off, rub off, or budge off. The best part is, it that it will not dry out your lips. In fact, it helps to restore the moisture content of your lips when used the right way. The gloss has a base of shea butter and bees wax and it feels so nice on. LipSense claims that it can last up to 18 hours on your lips so long as you use the gloss with the color together.
Last week, I noticed that the more I used it, the more it made my lips less flaky and dry. I learned that the lip colors contain a small amount of alcohol to help exfoliate your lips and remove build-up leftover from previous applications. I’m thrilled about this because that was my biggest complaint from other long wearing lip colors!
They offer 70 plus colors to choose from and even have different finishes of gloss (matte, pearl, glitter, moisturizing and diamond). Another big plus is that it is made right here in the USA and also is vegan, cruelty-free and formulated with safe ingredients.
I chose the color, “First Love” which is a nice everyday neutral. It’s almost my lip color but just bright enough to feel more polished. Lord Business isn’t a huge lipstick fan but he immediately noticed this color on me and really liked it. Or maybe he was excited that it was kissable color that won’t get on him!
I put my first coat on at 9:00am and went about my day. I ate breakfast, had some tea, lots of talking then I put another gloss coat on about 11:30am. I ate a semi-greasy lunch, and forgot I had it on which was a nice feeling! The gloss feels like a nice smooth chapstick and not a heavy or sticky gloss. I put the gloss on every 3-4 hours which pumped up the color.
Overall, I really like this product and would recommend it to any of my lipstick wearing fiends. The price is a little steep but like most higher-end products, you’ll use less because of the quality. I am excited to try other colors and finishes because they have tons! Best part is, you only have to apply once a day! No more worrying about getting lipstick on your teeth, partner, clothes or anywhere else! Each gloss runs about $25 but if you think about seldom you put it on, totally worth it!
I laughed when I saw the series of pics I took because I’m happy and put together in the morning and by nighttime, I’m tired and checked out! Ha! Keeping it real, baby.
