LipSense is a liquid lip color. It contains mica from the earth. So it is a blend of nature and science. It is NOT a lipstick that contains wax. It is NOT a stain. Lipsense does not stain your lips.
LipSense long lasting lip color forms a semi-permeable membrane on the lips, which basically means that it leaves a film of color on the lips that the gloss can soak through. But the color won't smear or smudge.
You can apply Lipsense moisturizing gloss on top of the semi permanent color without smudging or moving the color.
You can remove Lip Sense immediately but why would you? Most loyal Lip Sense fans wear it as long as it lasts. Some people may need to touch up their color once a day. Other people only refresh their gloss during the day.
I apply LipSense in the morning about 8 am. At lunch time, I apply more gloss before I eat to protect the lip color.
After I eat I decide if I need to touch up my Lipsense lip color or not. If so, just apply lip sense in the area where it has faded, then add more gloss.
I am confident that I have on lip color all day long. If I am going out at night, I like to totally remove my lipsense lipstick and start fresh.
After you have been wearing the color all day long, your body chemistry begins to break down the color. Applying new LipSense on top of old LipSense will not last as long.
Tell me, how long does Lipsense last on YOU?
