Why do I have to wear the LipSense Gloss?

Since there is no moisture content in the Lipsense lip color, it is imperative that you use the Lipsense gloss.

You cannot use this lip color without the lip sense gloss. Lip sense Lipcolor is semipermeable and the gloss will soak through the color and moisturize your lips. The collection includes a glossy gloss, because that one is the most moisturizing. That’s where you need to start. You need to apply gloss before eating because in addition to moisturizing your lips, it protects and seals your color from the oils in your foods.

Moisturizing Glosses not only cover and protect naked lips but also improve the longevity (staying power) of LipSense Liquid Lip Color. Gloss provides exceptional protection from the elements and helps repair dry, damaged, chapped and/or sensitive lips.

A note from me:  “I have tried using other glosses like Loreal Juicy Tubes etc and it broke down the color so the color didn’t last as long.”

How long will LipSense last?

From 4 – 18 hours.  The length of time the color will last on anyone varies depending on several factors, one of which is body chemistry.  Assuming three applications have been applied and the Moisturizing Gloss is applied to prevent drying, the liquid lip color will last several hours. The exact length of time is dependent upon your personal body chemistry. Longevity is also affected by medications and alcohol intake. 

On some days I notice my lip color does not stay as long, why?

LipSense comes off when your lips exfoliate, which is usually every eight to ten hours or so. Because LipSense only adheres to your top layer of skin it comes off when your lips exfoliate and does not damage the underlying layers. The Gloss has Shea Butter that penetrates several layers down, actually making your lips healthier. The more moisturised your lips are the longer it will take your lips to exfoliate. Thus your LipSense will last longer if you keep your lips moist. Most women will find the colour will last all day when reapplying the Gloss throughout the day. The colour can also lift when eating foods with oils, eg. salads with vinaigrettes, fried chips – Gloss prior to eating these foods and this will protect the colour.

Can I combine LipSense Liquid Lip Colors?

Definitely. This is one of the benefits of the three layer application. You can use any of the colours to come up with various new shades to best suit you. Some colours lend themselves to applying over others, mostly used for this are Pink and Gold Champagnes.

I can feel a tingling sensation, what is this?

The first time you try LipSense it can tingle. This is because the lips are dry and not sufficiently moisturised. Those without dry lips do not notice this. The sensation will stop once you have finished the application and applied the moisturising gloss. After you have used the Gloss for a day or two you will rarely ever experience the tingling again. Dry lips can be caused by repeated use of wax and paraffin based lipsticks, which, by their nature, can cause dry lip tissue. You can eliminate this by conditioning the lips for a few days and not using any wax based products. Once you use the LipSense and the Moisturising Gloss on a regular basis the dry lips will be gone forever.

Does LipSense give protection from the sun?

The proprietary formulations and colour pigments in LipSense help create a physical covering for the lips, and so the colour pigments help to protect the lips from the sun’s rays.

Why do I need the whole set of Lipsense Lip color, gloss and oops remover?

The Set consists of a LipSense Liquid Lip Colour, a Moisturising Gloss and Ooops! Remover. The long-lasting properties of the LipSense colour product are enhanced by using one of the LipSense Moisturising Glosses. LipSense Glosses were formulated to work with the long-lasting technology of LipSense whereas other gloss formulations may break down the staying power of LipSense. In addition, the Moisturising Glosses help to keep the lips moist and plump.

The Ooops! Remover is especially designed to erase those Ooops! mistakes that can occur when applying the Lip Colour. As a person eats and drinks, the Gloss comes off and needs to be reapplied a few times during the day to keep the colour renewed and increase its staying power. If you are using the product properly you will see that the colour will last all day long.

What do I do if I accidentally spill some of the color on my clothing?

It has been our experience that most of the LipSense Liquid Lip Color can be removed from clothing with dry cleaning fluid. Take the garment to your dry cleaners or ask to purchase a small amount of their dry cleaning fluid. Be sure to first test the garment to ensure the dry cleaning fluid does not ruin the garment.  Or you can try using Oops Remover to lift the color.

What preservative is in LipSense?

There is no preservative in LipSense. It is self-preserved. The liquid delivery system naturally kills germs and bacteria.

Does LipSense contain Lead?

It does NOT and NEVER has.

What is the main ingredient in LipSense?

The main liquid ingredient of LipSense is SD-Alcohol 40 (SDA40). SDA40 is thinner than water and can better suspend the tiny ingredients that are needed in the product. In other words, suspension agent that allows you to get the product out of the tube.

More importantly, SDA40 evaporates quickly so that when actually placed on to the lip with the wand, the SDA40 delivers all the needed ingredients of the lip color to the lips and then SDA40 evaporates, leaving behind the long lasting color technology.

SDA40 is used for another important reason: For antiseptic capabilities. SDA40 helps maintain LipSense® as a germ and bacteria free environment. Each time a wand touches the lips, the wand is exposed to bacteria and germs. The bacteria and germs on the wand are eliminated when the wand is placed back into the tube. Each tube of LipSense is germ and bacteria free. This is why the product may be used to the very last drop. LipSense does not become chunky or smelly, due to an accumulation of germs and bacteria often found in other types of tube/wand application products. LipSense has a shelf life of at least seven years.
