So, you finally took the plunge and tried out “The Amazing,Life-Changing LipSense” and its just not working for you?
Let’s troubleshoot . . .
#1 Shake, shake, shake – – Are you shaking your tube of LipSense prior to application? The pigment SeneGence uses is natural and the transferring agent is SD40 alcohol –so make sure you spend 10-20 seconds shaking it up before you apply. (THIS is THE most often forgotten or not applied step)
#2 “IT BURNS” . .. The transferring agent is SD40 alcohol – which begins to evaporate the moment it touches your lips. The shaking is also REALLY important for this problem – – but KNOW that it really isn’t burning – it’s tingling. The tingling sensation is a sign that you are more dehydrated than you think – once you’ve been using it for a few days (and drink adequate water) – you won’t experience the tingling anymore.
#3 It isn’t lasting – –
A. How long IS it lasting? SeneGence says it will last 4-18 hours on your lips. Personally, mine lasts 4-6. I would LOVE to be among those that get 18 hours – but I don’t. So, if you are getting at least 4 – – CELEBRATE!!! 4+ hours without having to reapply is GOLD!!
C. Is it coming off your waterline? This is a common problem among those who are blessed with big, buxom lips. In this case – you might need to DRY the waterline and then reapply in that area to get another 4+ hours out of your color.
E. Are you applying 3 layers? I can’t tell you how many times customers tell me that they only use 1 or 2 because they LOVE the color. 3 layers is essential – – your color will NOT last on your lips without all 3. The solution is to acquire a soft color you can layer on top or underneath the one you LOVE (with only 1 or 2 layers) My personal favorite layering colors are: bombshell, cappucino, pink champagne.
#4 “It tastes like alcohol” – I have personally noted this with a few of the colors – but I think it varies from person to person. Some aren’t affected at all – and others have a few colors that they don’t like due to their sensitivity.
#5 My Lips are DRY .. .
A. gloss, gloss, gloss. Remember that in the first 30 days your lips will naturally start to exfoliate because LipSense doesn’t have ANY wax in it. So – all the years of wearing lipstick and chapstick have to be combatted. During this time – using glossy gloss is essential. Although SeneGence carries MANY other supercute (and fun) glosses – in the first 30 days your lips NEED the extra moisture that the glossy gloss provides.
B. Are you using chapstick at night? If so, STOP!!!! Use the glossy gloss or get a SeneGence Moisturizing Lipbalm. If you put wax on your lips (aka chapstick) – your exfoliation process will take longer and your lips will be dry, dry, dry.
C. HOW are you removing your LipSense at night? If you answer – Oops Remover –YOU are the BOMB!!! This is the ONLY way SeneGence recommends LipSense removal. The Oops Remover takes it off while leaving your lips soft and moist and infusing your lips with needed vitamins/minerals. If you use other products – they are harsher on your lips which will result in DRYness.
Not sure HOW to remove with Oops? THIS short video will take you thru the process.
#5 I don’t like the Color. – -this one is SUPER easy.
B. What is your Undertone? Are you Warm or Cool. I find that knowing this is incredibly powerful when you are looking for a color that’ll make you feel Va-Va-Voom!!
