For the past week or so I have been giving LipSense a go & much to my skepticism, this stuff is amazinggg. I have actually already ordered another color! I am wearing Caramel Apple in the above posts, it is the perfect neutral red for day to night activities. So, with this system you need the base (your color), the LipSense gloss, and the Ooops! Remover (you definitely want the remover, if you mess up and get the color on your skin, you probably won't get it off without this). The product does have a chemically smell when you first apply the color, but it works so well I easily overlooked that. Here's how you apply:
1. Shake the color, apply 3 coats. When you apply make sure you go in one direction and only do one swipe per application. This was so hard for me haha, I am so used to just rubbing back and forth! But it looks wayyy better when you follow this rule.
2. Your lips are going to sting slightly and will feel dry, this is where the Moisturizing Gloss comes in. I love this gloss, it isn't sticky and feels so great.
3. The color should last 8-12 hours- depending on what you eat and whatnot. If you eat something greasy the color will breakdown because of the oils, this is the same with all makeup. My color typically lasts about 8 hours before it needs to be refreshed, although you do need to reapply the gloss throughout the day! If you don't, your lips will HATE you. The color doesn't smudge, it doesn't fade, it's pretty insane actually. It's like a stain but it looks like lipstick 💄
4. I don't use the Ooops! Remover to remove the product, I just scrub my lips slightly with a washcloth when I wash my face with a gentle cleanser. At this point in the day the color isn't as vivid and fresh so as long as I haven't applied it within the past few hours, it comes right off.
***If you are interested in trying LipSense you can purchase from Courtney Blackford either on Facebook or message her on Instagram (I highly suggest checking her Instagram out @cournteytayler, she models all the amazing colors!).
