I recently got introduced to Lipsense long lasting lip color and was excited when I spoke with Jalynn from The Red Closet Diary about reviewing Lipsense here on LegalLee Blonde. Lipsense is a makeup game changer. I do not sell lipsense, so I am not trying to sell it to you. Rather, as a user of lipsense I wanted to give you my honest review. (Please note Jalynn did provide me some of the lipsense colors for free so that I would have enough to review. This does not change the honesty of my review!)
How Lipsense Works:
Lipsense is a multi-step system. Step one is to apply the color. Depending on the shade you will likely need 2-3 coats. As a tip, make sure to wait at least 20 seconds between coats and to swipe the color in only one direction (so that you don’t remove part of the color you just applied).
Step two is to apply the gloss. The standard is their glossy gloss (which I LOVE). I also tried the matte gloss, but I don’t recommend it. The glossy gloss is incredibly hydrating and leaves your lips feeling smooth. The matte gloss doesn’t last as long and doesn’t preserve the color quite as well.
And that’s it! Within less than 2 minutes you’ll have lip color that lasts all day. To remove (step 3, if you will) use the “oops” remover.
Lipsense Color Picks:
I have three colors of lipsense, as you can see from the photo above. My personal favorite is the crimson red because it is so nice to have dramatic lipstick and know that you don’t have to worry about it smudging all day/night. I also (not pictured) have fallen in love with wearing two layers of fleur de lisa and one layer of bombshell. It creates a perfect light pink for every day wear.
Overall, I love lipsense. I am hooked and can’t wait to get more colors. The only negative I have to say is regarding the removal. I know some women find the
remover works amazingly, but I have dry lips and I found the color incredibly hard to remove! I personally need to apply the remover and leave it on
for a few minutes and then do a gentle scrub in order to actually remove
all the color. As I have been using lipsense more and more (and my lips
are becoming more hydrated from the gloss) I found this to be less of a
problem. Take it as my warning though; this was a huge problem for me in the beginning!
One other issue to point out, is I found that the gloss goes down incredibly quickly. Because you need to reapply throughout the day and if you have dry lips, like me, you also want to use it on days when you aren’t wearing color – the gloss goes so quickly. I would almost go so far as to say you should just buy two when you make your first purchase. I wish they just made a larger tube of the gloss!
And that’s it! If you have any questions at all, please let me know in the comments below.

PS. if you are terribly indecisive when it comes to color *cough* me *cough*, Jalynn is AWESOME at helping you choose the best color for you!
