LIPSENSE APPLICATION TIPS:
Are you wondering how to apply LipSense. It definitely is an art – and there is a bit of a learning curve – but if you practice a few times – it’ll soon be second nature. (For reals, I can now do it in the car while I drive!)
#1 START WITH CLEAN AND DRY LIPS
Let’s get started! How to apply LipSense: LipSense should always be applied to clean, dry lips. So wipe your lips with a wet washclosh and blot dry PRIOR to application so it bonds better to your lips – and LASTS longer!!
#2 SHAKE IT UP, BABY!
The next step is to shake your LipSense Tube. Shake, Shake Shake . . . Shake, Shake, Shake – shake your LipSense. LipSense is a natural pigment suspended in SD40 alcohol (cosmetic grade) – so the shaking prior to use is ESSENTIAL!! The alcohol is the transferring agent and begins to evaporate as soon as it touches your lips. Thus, it is not drying – however, the first few times you use it – you may feel a tingle upon application. This is nothing to worry about!! When you remove the applicator – wipe it on the edge of the bottle so it has “just” the right amount of product on it. (This is one of the MOST IMPORTANT LipSense Application Tips!)
#3 HOW TO APPLY LIPSENSE
Apply in a thin, even coat – moving in one direction. ONE swipe – this is the hardest part as we are used to applying lipstick back and forth on our lips. RESIST THE URGE! Your LipSense will last longer if applied in one swipe.
1. So, press and glide along the bottom lip.
2. Then, start at cupid’s bow – and press and glide in one direction of your upper lip – then go back and press and glide towards the other side of your upper lip.
3. Next, wait 5-10 seconds – let it dry and avoid touching your lips together.
4. Repeat steps 1-3 until you have 3 layers of color applied.
*If you make a mistake – miss a spot or “color” out of the lines – don’t despair!!! DO NOT go back and try to fix it right away – that drying time is really important. Let it dry and then go back in and “fix” whatever you need to. (Oops can help you remove any accidental coloring out of the lines.)
#4 GLOSS IT UP!!
Once you are certain all 3 layers are dry – (usually only takes 5-10 seconds), apply gloss freely. You can use as little or as much as you want!! If the wand of your gloss changes from white to color – you KNOW your color wasn’t fully dry.
Make sure you re-apply gloss throughout the day as needed. The gloss seals in the color and keeps your lips moist. Our gloss is filled with shea butter and is very hydrating. I esp. like to gloss before AND after I eat – to keep my color looking GREAT!!
