I’m always down to try out new make up products if it means making my 5-min face look even more fabulous! 😉
Earlier this summer I tried a product called LipSense – a long-lasting liquid lip colour. This product boasts claims that are pretty tough to ignore: its waterproof, does not kiss-off, smear-off, or rub-off. Each lip colour lasts for up to 18 hours with 1 application! With over 30 colors to choose from and thousands of layering possibilities…I couldn’t wait to try this out~!!!
Ani Novshadian of “Lovely Lasting Looks” is a LipSense product distributor, and gave me the 3-part starter kit to use. Here’s how it worked for me.
The 3-part Starter Kit
The colour ($30CAD) + the gloss ($25CAD) + the oops remover ($12CAD)
The colour needs to be applied to dry, clean lips in several layers, spread in a fluid sweeping motion without lifting the applicator. 3 even layers – with 5 seconds of drying time in between each layer.
Then the gloss needs to be applied generously. And you are encouraged to apply this gloss often throughout the day for long-lasting results of the colour.
MY Results: Round 1 – Salmon
Ani was kind enough to show me how to apply the product. And together we picked a fun, loud, summertime colour for me to try: SALMON!!! ❤
For 3-weeks, I followed all the steps, being very diligent and steady with the colour application of thin, even layers…allowing for drying time before the next layer.
As you can see…. MY lips looked nothing like the lips advertised above 😦
The biggest excitment to me for using this product was its long-lasting never needing to reapply colour claims. Let’s see how that worked out for me:
The below were my lips the morning AFTER using the Oops Remover (the 3rd piece of the starter kit).
As you can see my lips were super dried-out and some of the colour was still adhering to my lips. 😦
MY Results: Round 2 – Aussie Rose
Sigh… needless to say I was super discouraged. But I wasn’t ready to give up.
Ani asked me to try with a different colour as sometimes certain colours weren’t as “easy”. So for the next 3-weeks I used a different, lighter lip colour to see if it might work better for me.
Here’s how that went…
At this point, applying generous amount of the LipSense gloss seemed to have giving the colour new life ❤
But then as the day went on, this colour quit on me too:
This product just made me hyper aware of my lips. It wasn’t a comfortable wear. It seemed to suck the moisture out of my lips. And sadly, this “lasting colour” barely made it with me through a day out-and-about
This is not the look I wanna suddenly notice on my face while out and about …yikes!
Here’s the results of the Oops Remover on my lips after a day of wearing the Aussie Rose lip colour. As you can see, the colour was really tough to remove, leaving my lips with every line visible and lip crease super dry.
Overall, this was a fun product to try out – lots of colours to choose from – sadly, it just didn’t hold true in terms of long-lasting effects it claims.
And as much as I’d love, love, love to be known as “Makeup Mama Me-Ow” 😉 …. LipSense just isn’t a product for me.

I was told I have too much wax residue from my chapstick to get the full extent of the product… Pain. I need my chapstick!
After using for a while, it’s the only product that actually stays on for longer than one hour! I get about 4-8 hours of staying power. It is advertised as ‘up to 18 hours’ but that solely depends on your PH and your fluid intake. More hydrated body = more hydrated lips. I have tried numerous products and couldn’t get a color to last more than one hour. I do eat a lot of greasy items, so my waterline wears down faster, which is what you’re seeing in the later in the day pics. But still, I get tons more wear and the product lasts longer than others. I also sweat a lot in the summer, so the fact that SeneGence products are waterproof/resistant really helps me. I have also found that I don’t need 10 tubes of chapstick per month (my old usual) since I’ve been using LipSense, gloss and the lip balm at night. Usually just one application of the balm at night is all I need, and I keep a tube of a gloss at my desk but rarely need it anymore!
