LipSense Review + Giveaway


 Lipstick hasn't always been a part of my everyday make-up routine. On most days I just throw on some lip gloss or chapstick before I head out the door, mainly because I don't want to have to re-apply lipstick every hour or so! I have a habit of biting and licking my lips, so it's hard to find something that works for me.

 I do, however, love the look of lipstick! I think it ties together a whole look and gives me so much more confidence. So when I was approached by a LipSense representative to try out their long-wearing, smudge proof lipsticks with a huge color selection, I couldn't say no! Here's my honest review of my experience with the LipSense starter kit:



So what exactly is Lipsense?
Lipsense is a lipstick that claims to be smudge and kiss proof, that doesn't rub of budge off! They offer a variety of over 50 shades that you can wear alone or mix and match to create your own perfect shade. There's a color for everyone! Then you finish off your look with a topcoat gloss with a number of options from matte, rose, pearl, or glitter.
These lipsticks also contain cosmetic-grade alcohol, which prevents bacteria build up in the tubes. When the lipstick is used properly and regularly, it also claims to exfoliate your lips and removes product build up from other products! So your lips will feel softer than ever before!



Application Instructions:
1. Apply to clean, dry lips.
2. With lips parted, place LipSense applicator on the corner of the bottom of your lip.
3. In a fluid sweeping motion, brush applicator on the opposite corner of your bottom lip without lifting the stick. (Do not go back and forth.)
4. Repeat step 3 on upper lips.
5. Keep lips open to allow to dry for 5 seconds.
6. Repeat 2 more times.
7. Finish with your topcoat gloss to seal in the color.
8. Re-apply gloss throughout the day when needed.



My Review:
I received the Lipsense starter kit, which included: One long lasting liquid lip color, clear moisturizing gloss, and the oops remover!


The Application Process:
I'm not gonna lie, applying the lipstick the first time was kind of tricky. One thing I learned was to let the product dry COMPLETELY before applying another coat! Not doing so causes the lipstick to build up and get sticky. It can also cause a patchy look. Once I let it dry completely before applying again, it went on like a dream!

Formula:
The formula of LipSense is very similar to your standard liquid lipstick. They are a little bit drying, as expected, but the moisturizing topcoat helps a TON with putting that moisture back into your lips!

Wear:
After wearing this lipstick everyday for a week, I can honestly say I love how it held up! During the first 3-4 hours of wear, this stuff was bulletproof! It lasted through talking, eating, and drinking- with no transfer. The topcoat of course came off after a few hours, and I learned that applying the gloss through out the day REALLY helps with keeping your lips looking fresh!

My Overall Thoughts:
Overall I had an amazing experience with LipSense. I was very pleased with the color I picked, and surprised at how many other colors there was to choose from! I love how long wearing it is and I can't wait to wear it more so I can see the benefits of softer and smoother lips. I highly recommend you check it out if you are in the market for a new lip product to try!
