Most of you have probably heard of LipSense. And if you’re like me, you’ve probably been curious to try, but didn’t want to spend the money on it. I did receive this product to review, but this is my 100 percent HONEST review.
If you know me, you know lipsticks are my jam. Sometimes I feel like liquid lipsticks have ruined regular lipsticks for me. I have super high standards for lipsticks and let me just tell you now that these didn’t disappoint.
I received the starter kit. It comes with the color of your choice, the moisturizing gloss (top coat), and the oops remover. The packaging is pretty basic, they all have your basic doe foot applicator. I chose the color Purple Reign. It’s such a beautiful bright violet. Perfect for Spring coming up.
There are over 70 different colors to choose from. You can also mix colors to create new ones. There is also a matte top coat available. These are cruelty free, vegan, and gluten free. All products are made in the USA with natural ingredients.
It has very detailed steps on how to apply. See below:
As you can see, the instructions are very detailed. The doe foot applicator it contains actually made it very simple to apply. I first lined my lips with the tip of the applicator and then filled the rest in. It does feel very awkward keeping your mouth open the whole time. I ended up doing about 3-4 layers of the color because I wanted a very opaque color. So the first time I applied my lips were cracked. It burned like a B****! It feels like you are putting straight up alcohol on your lips. The burning sensation went away after I put on the top coat. It didn’t burn the second time I tried it. I dislike how long the application process takes. It takes me 5-10 minutes every time. But I guess it’s ok since you don’t have to worry about your lipstick for the rest of the day.
When you first apply, it’s super glossy. I prefer matte lipsticks so this is a bit different for me. I didn’t find myself having to reapply the gloss throughout the day because my lips felt moisturized. My lips were still somewhat shiny after seven hours of wear. As far as the color goes, it was just as opaque as it was when I first applied it. I do love that these don’t transfer… LIKE AT ALL.
Removing the product was fairly easy. I layered the Oops remover on my lips and then used a makeup wipe to remove the rest. The second time around I used a cleansing oil and a makeup wipe as well. The cleansing oil worked just a good, if not, better. Coconut oil, witch hazel, or olive oil would work just as great. You could save yourself $10 and just purchase the color and gloss.
Overall, I think this is a great product. I do think the price tag is a little high especially since the first purchase you make will be at least $45. But to be honest, there isn’t any other product out there that does what LipSense does. You will not find another product that stays glossy and doesn’t transfer for hours. This is a great product for brides, prom, or any other special occasion. I will definitely be purchasing a nude color.
So, do I recommend this? Absolutely. I’m actually very happy I had the opportunity to try. Now I feel like I wish I would’ve tried these a long time ago.
