My friend Heather started selling SeneGence products and in particular the LipSense product (you can find her page here Heather’s Luscious Lips). The company stated that the lip product was an “all day wear” color which could last from 4-18 hours. I love to support my fellow Mom’s in their endeavors, so I ordered. I had never heard of it before, and figured why not try it out. I did a little research to find out that their products are made in the USA, no testing on animals, made with only a handful of ingredients. In my research I did see that some celebrities like Jennifer Aniston and Christina Aguilera also use it.
I decided to order the starter kit…always a good place to start…LOL!Starter kit was $55 and came with one tube of the color choice, gloss, and oops remover.
I choose my color PRECIOUS TOPAZ as it was most like other lipsticks that I wore and knew it would go with most of my clothing options. With over 79 different colors, choosing one was the hardest part of the process.
I received my product a few days after ordering and off we went to apply! I did watch an application video provided on her FB group page Heather’s Luscious Lips. It was very easy, three very light coats with 3-5 seconds of drying in between and it was done! Yesterday was a busy day for me and I knew I would really be putting this product through its paces and would be a great day to really review it. We had a baby shower to attend (lots of eating and drinking) we also had church and plans for dinner and drinks after with friends. I showered and dressed, makeup applied at 10:00am…you can follow the picture progression, but I applied it ONLY ONE TIME!
3 coats of color, 1 coat of gloss
NO RE-APPLICATION of color!
Off to baby shower, I did lots of eating and drinking. No lip stains on the glasses. Next to church, added a little more gloss. Dinner and drinks with friends. Lots of hugging, kissing cute kiddie faces hello and goodbye, and eating/drinking. No lip prints left behind. Several times I wiped my mouth with a napkin just to see if anything came off…NOTHING was there!
After almost 12 hours, still going strong!
By 10:00pm I was ready for bed! Off I go, taking the advice of the application and removal video I watched I put a generous coating of the Oops Remover on and let it sit while I took off the rest of my makeup. I would say it sat for maybe like 5 minutes total. I took on clean tissue and with no rubbing, just a gentle wipe, it was off. No tugging or massive scrubbing at all.
Pros & Cons:
- Long lasting
- Easy to apply
- Great saturation and pigmentation of color
- Lots of color selections
- Gloss was VERY hydrating and NOT sticky at all (felt like a nice lip balm)
- Did not wipe or kiss off
- Easy to remove
- Lips did feel a little dry when the gloss had worn off.
- By 9:30pm I could see that the color was stronger on the outside of my lips than it was on the underside. With my lips together you could not tell, but when I looked in the mirror with them apart I could see it. Not a huge con as it was almost 12 hours after application and only myself would have noticed it.
LOVE and will definitely purchase again. The $25 tube of LipSense will last me a lifetime with only three very light coats applied a day. I love that you can get other colors and mix and match a coat from two different tubes to make your own special color. The colors combos are endless. They have a great selection of lighter shades/hues to dark and rich ones to suit everyone’s tastes and styles.
