I love lip products, the only thing annoying about them is that they never seem to last on my lips and when I reapply it just never looks as good! I was thrilled when Sonya from RedGateBeauty contacted me asking if I wanted to try out a couple of LipSense products. LipSense products are advertised as being completely kiss proof, smudge-proof and waterproof, so you can imagine my excitement.
I have the liquid colour in Mulled Wine and the Matte Gloss.
I had a bit of trial and error with the liquid colour, it took me a few attempts before I managed to apply it successfully. The first few times I used it, it went on very patchy which wasn’t an amazing look. The trick is to apply each layer in one swipe, to stop it from going patchy – but believe me it’s a bit tricky at first!
The application instructions are as followed:
- Prep lips by cleansing them – removing any lip balm or other leftover products.
- Begin by applying the Lipsense lip color, in three thin coats (allowing each layer a few seconds to dry in between). Swipe the brush from one corner of the lip to the other without rubbing the applicator back and forth.
- Finish with a topcoat gloss to seal in the color and also hydrate the lips.
The liquid colour is super liquid, it’s more of a lip tint than a liquid lipstick. It can feel tingly when you first apply it, I quite like the sensation – it’s due to the vaporation process of the Denatured Alcohol (so no need to worry).
But I absolutely love the colour Mulled Wine! It’s the perfect autumn shade.
After the liquid colour I apply the matte gloss – this hydrates your lips and stops your lips from feeling sticky. I absolutely love the matte gloss! I’ve been wearing it over all of my other liquid lipsticks too, I couldn’t recommend it enough! Gives your lips that extra moisture without them looking glossy or feeling sticky. So its ideal to put over the top of any liquid lipsticks.
The products really are kiss and smudge-proof! The liquid colour is really long-lasting, I like to reapply the matte gloss throughout the day just to give my lips a bit more hydration. But the colour lasts for ages! So much longer than any other lip product I’ve tried.
I hope you enjoyed this post and thank you for reading! Let me now what you think of LipSense if you try it!
Love, Estelle X
