Here are a bunch of amazing LipSense Tips and Tricks for better and long lasting LipSense wear. Certain habits that you may be doing may aid in breaking down your color. Biting or rubbing your lips together. Licking your lips! Saliva is great to break down food but also your LipSense. Always gloss before and after your eat to protect your color from outside elements….greasy or salty foods.
Lip color flaking?
Let’s quickly talk about exfoliation! Naturally your body exfoliates dead skin cells so new ones can replace them, but when you use products with wax in them, that prevents moisture from entering your lips and prevents your lips from exfoliating. When you stop using chapstick, you’ll notice your lips will flake(exfoliate) which is totally normal and good! Once that phase is over, which can take 2 weeks up to two months, (or it may not happen to you), then your LipSense will last longer and feel softer.
If you are not using Ooops, Fooops or our SeneGence make up wipes to remove the product, other products may dry out your lips which in turn extend the exfoliation flaky phase.
If you are taking certain medications, or the ph levels of your body and saliva can also affect the longevity.
If your lips feel dry, make sure you are drinking enough water. LipSense isn’t going to cure dehydration and your lips are one of the first places that show you need to drink more water. Also, even if you aren’t wearing a color, you can still use the glosses for hydration! Or the lip balm and Nanagi Oil are amazing (but not to be topped with the colors).
Thin layers! Be sure to wipe off any extra color on the wand back in the tube. Especially light matte colors Apple Cider, First Love and Goddess. Frost or shimmer colors can hide some of the application imperfections but with matte colors, it takes a little more care. The *only* exception to thin layers would be for dark matte colors; (Plum, Mulled Wine). Those tend to apply easier when the layers are a little thicker but be sure to leave extra drying time. You can also use a hair dryer on the cold setting.
Don’t leave your LipSense Colors or LipSense Glosses in your car or in very hot or cold climates.
Waterline not lasting? When applying the color be sure that your waterline is completely dry, (the waterline is right on the inside of your lips).
LipSense Application Tips
Make sure you have cleaned off your lips with a warm wet washcloth and let them dry completely before applying the color. That way the color will bond to your lips and last much longer.
Shake the color 15 to 30 seconds before applying or else the color may flake off.
Don’t rub your lips together until the very end after you’ve applied the gloss.
Keep your lips taut and apart the entire time (especially with the thicker Matte formulas such as, First Love, Apple Cider, Goddess etc.)
Do not go back and forth with the wand, it’ll pick up the color and won’t apply evenly.
