Have you heard of LipSense? The stay all day, smudge-proof, budge-proof, life proof liquid lipstick. It is the "WOW" product in SeneGence's makeup line. You are usually introduced to this amazing product first but the skin care is for sure where it's at! (Click here to learn about the amazing skin care)
I get a lot of questions on how to apply LipSense properly. If you want to make sure that your color lasts as long as possible you want to make sure that your application is done correctly, you can't apply like a regular lipstick. You want to apply in layers and make sure you apply in one fluid swipe, no back and forth motions.
Let's learn a little about the product before we get to the application instructions. SeneGence describes LipSense as ' the premier product of SeneGence and is unlike any conventional lipstick, stain or color. As the original long-lasting lip color, it is waterproof, does not kiss-off, smear-off, rub-off or budge-off! Create your own color palette by combining shades. Your customized look will last even longer and your lips will stay moist and plump with LipSense Moisturizing Gloss' LipSense works as a sort of "skin peel" for your lips. Most people feel a bit of a burning sensation the first few times you use it. This is completely normal and will subside the more you use the product. Other lips products actually cause a buildup on your lips and the more you use them, the more you "need" them. LipSense is working to remove all of the waxes off of your lips to restore them to their natural state. You will find that once your lips have been fully exfoliated (time-frame varies but mine took about a month) you will see that you don't feel like you need to apply a gloss or Chapstick because your natural lips won't be as dry and chapped.
Whew...what an explanation! Let's get into what you came here for: the correct way to apply!
Step 1: Make sure that your lips are clean and dry. I use a Norwex cloth for this step.
Step 2. Shake your lip color for about 30 seconds to make sure that the color is mixed up well.
Step 3: Make sure you wipe off all access off the wand. You may think that there is nothing on the wand but there is. You want to apply thin layers or it will end up patchy and will potentially not last all day.
Steps 4-6: Apply 3 thin layers.
Step 7: Apply your choice of SeneGence Lip Gloss. You can use other lip glosses but they will break down the color faster and so you won't get as long of a wear.
You will want to apply your gloss throughout the day as needed. Make sure you don't lick your lips a lot and stay hydrated! This will also help your color last longer.
