The Science Behind the Product
This unique product is waterproof and does not smear off, rub off, nor kiss off! And, just as important it does not dry out lips. In fact, it restores the moisture content of lips when used properly. LipSense liquid lip color can last anywhere between 4 and 18 hours. LipSense is a non-wax liquid lip color that stays on skin. LipSense provides a natural shield from the sun. The proprietary formulations and color pigments in LipSense help create a mechanical covering for the lips. That means the skin on lips is protected from the sun’s rays by the color pigments, therefore lips are protected from harmful rays. That is just one of the reasons lips become so smooth and soft with consistent use of LipSense. LipSense should be applied in three layers:
- 1st layer – touches the skin’s pH and will begin to break down first and fastest.
- 2nd layer – protected from the bottom, away from the skin’s pH, by the first layer.
- 3rd layer – protects the second layer from the top down and prevents sheering of second layer of color by keeping away friction, saliva, and the natural environment.
The third layer breaks down just like the first layer, but from the top down. The second layer is sandwiched between the first and third and is protected by both for the longest period of use.

LipSense Liquid Lip Color Directions for Use
Application of three layers of color is recommended for the greatest staying power. The LipSense applicator connected to the lid of the LipSense cap of the tube has three features for application:
- Tip – Pointed to apply LipSense as a lip liner
- Longest Side – Used to apply LipSense to full lips
- Shorter Side – Used to apply LipSense to thin lips
For best results, LipSense products must be applied to clean, dry lips. For a more defined, finished look, use LinerSense before applying the lip color. LipSense needs to be shaken horizontally prior to application. LipSense is applied by using a layering technique. After placing color onto the wand, begin application at the corner of mouth, (usually) using the longest length of the applicator. Keep lips apart, and follow the natural shape of lips starting at the outer corner of the mouth. With one continual stroke, apply one layer of color from one corner to the other corner of the bottom lip, then one layer of color to the top lip. Apply the color, moving the applicator in one continuous direction versus going back and forth like you would with lipstick. Let each layer set for a few seconds before proceeding to the next. It is not recommended to apply more than three layers of color. When the application of the third layer of color is complete and the color has set, apply one of the LipSense Moisturizing Glosses over the final layer. Do not press lips together until the moisturizing gloss has been applied onto the last layer of lip color. After applying the gloss, press your lips together to smooth in the moisture rich gloss and enjoy the glorious look and feel of this long-lasting, advanced color technology!
