For most women, LipSense goes on beautifully and stays on for hours. Rarely, though, a woman will experience some issues that need troubleshooting. Here are 4 LipSense tips that will get you the longest, loveliest wear. To get more tips and early notification of discounts and specials, join my Facebook group!
There are 4 common reasons why someone may not get long, beautiful wear out of their LipSense.
1) Applying LipSense too thickly
After you shake your LipSense tube, let it sit for a second upright. Wipe the excess product off so it goes back into the tube. You’ll save money and get a better application by applying 3 THIN layers. Thick layers are gloppy and runny and not even. Thin layers dry more easily. There should be NO COLOR on your Glossy Gloss wand at all when you apply it after LipSense. If there is, the layers are too thick and/or they need a bit more dry time.
2) Start with clean, DRY lips
Remove whatever’s on your lips (lip balm, Gloss, toothpaste, makeup that flecks off onto your mouth, food, etc) with a warm, damp washcloth or microfiber cloth. Start with a blank slate! And DRY lips carefully with microfiber or something non-linty.
3) Exfoliation issues
Those of us (cough cough ME) with severe chapped lips who, before LipSense, were addicted to balms, will go through a lengthy normalizing phase (for me, a month!) in which their lips may peel. This is good and normal! Speed it up by using SeneGence lip smooth lip scrub. Read more about peeling and flaking LipSense here.
4) Waterline issues
The waterline is that part of your inner lips that touch saliva. If you lick/bite/chew your lips, your lip color will wear off quick. Break these habits! (Note: I stopped chewing my mouth once I started using LipSense. I was subconsciously doing it because my lips were always dry and uncomfortable!) Dry your waterline well (with a paper towel or something non-linty) and tilt your head up (so the spit doesn’t pool) while applying, or do the SeneSlurp. LOL!
Since LipSense won’t come off on your teeth, it’s ok to get that applicator way in there! You can reapply LipSense to your waterline if it wears off, just dry it well first and make sure you’ve wiped off any Gloss.
That’s it! I want you to LOVE your LipSense and be a rabid fan who sends tons of customers my way (haha!) so please let me know if you aren’t 100% pleased and we’ll troubleshoot.
