The Science Behind the Product
This unique product is waterproof and does not kiss off, smear off, rub off, or budge off! And, just as important it does not dry out your lips. In fact, it restores the moisture content of your 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 your 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 your lips are protected from the sun’s rays by the color pigments, therefore your lips are more protected from harmful rays. That is just one of the reasons your lips become so smooth and soft with consistent use of LipSense.:
The patented formulation technology includes Cosmetic grade Denatured Alcohol, which is nothing close to Isopropyl Alcohol–or rubbing alcohol. In fact, you need Denatured Alcohol to apply LipSense to lips. While rubbing alcohol instantly removes LipSense from the skin. We do not recommend the use of rubbing alcohol on the skin because it dries out the skin. LipSense is formulated with Denatured Alcohol because:
- It is thinner than water and suspends the tiny particles within the formula.
- It immediately evaporates from the skin upon the delivery of the technology to the skin. (The “tingling” sensation felt on the lips, when some wearers first begin to use the color, is the evaporation process of the Denatured Alcohol felt within the dry cracks of the lips. This sensation disappears as lower layers of skin’s moisture content are restored by the use of the moisturizing gloss.)
Tiny Particles: The particles that help the color pigments to molecularly bind to the skin (see Ingredient listing). Over time, the particles begin to detach from the skin’s surface. The rate at which this occurs varies tremendously and is based upon the pH-balance of each person’s skin and the color they’ve chosen to wear for the day.
Color Pigments: Each tube of color has a varied formulation and mixture of color pigments to arrive at a specific color. Some colors naturally last longer than others because of the different body chemistry of each wearer, plus some colors are thicker or richer in color pigmentations, while others are sheer and thinner.
Layering LipSense: Layering LipSense is a must due to the fact the color breaks down with the pH balance of the skin.
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.
Mica: LipSense Lip Colors formulated with Micas do not tend to wear as long as the solid matte shades of LipSense. Micas create shine and shimmer. They reflect light and are made of particles that are larger than color pigments. Micas and may flick off the skin with regular skin movements. Talking and scraping lip movements like drinking from a cup can facilitate this process. You can assume up to an hour of less wear when wearing a Mica color.
Glossing: It is important to know the long-lasting properties of LipSense are enhanced by any of the LipSense moisturizing glosses. The gloss products also help to keep the lips moist and plump.

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. Here is how to apply LipSense®:
Step 1: 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.
Step 2: Repeat Step 1 two more times, so that you have a total of 3 layers of LipSense® applied to your lips. Let each layer set for a few seconds before proceeding to the next, and do not press lips together. It is not recommended to apply more than three layers of color.
Step 3: 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!
LipSense® Liquid Lip colors are removed by using Ooops!™ Color Remover or liquid Fooops!®

My favorite product is LipSense. I tried it at a beauty trade show over 6 years ago, and I have not been able to wear anything else on my lips since (I became a distributor the very next day!). I have tried some of the other "long lasting" lipsticks on the market, and they simply do not even come close to comparing. I had braces on my teeth at the time, and was dealing with dry skin issues, on my lips. That problem was solved almost immediately. LipSense seems to seal in your own natural moisture, and then the Shea Butter/vitamin E combo in the LipSense Gloss is enriching and moisturizing. What a superb product combination. - Char O.
LipSense lip color is absolutely the most AMAZING product! A lip color that doesn’t bleed or feather and stays put! What more could a woman want? Now I don’t leave a trail of lipstick where ever I go and my lips are finally healed with our Shea Butter glosses! Finally, a long-lasting lip color that really works! - Kaylen Y.
I absolutely can’t live without LipSense! I have a scar on my lip and LipSense is the only product that will stay on my scar. - Emily H.
LipSense has been a godsend for me. I work in a customer service role, and needs to present myself well throughout the day. I love that LipSense stays on for almost the entire day. This one product had made a difference in my life! - Lia
I was reluctant to try LipSense at first because I had tried everything on the market and always found lipsticks too cakey or messy on my teeth and clothes, while lip glosses came off way too quick and lip stains always looked fake or the wrong color for me. Once I tried LipSense and wore it for the day I was very impressed. I have worn it ever since and recommend it to anyone wanting an easy to apply, natural looking lip color that lasts. - Kate D.
My young daughter is a competitive dancer. It's a long day during competition, lots of nibbles and sipping all day from her water bottle. I discovered LipSense about three years ago, and I swear by it. I don't have to re-apply my daughters' lipstick after eating or drinking and there are never any lipstick marks on her costume. LipSense is magic, it lasts all day. We wouldn't use anything else. - Nadine M.
I have been using LipSense for about two years now and will never go back to conventional lipsticks. In fact, just last week I gave away eight or so tubes of perfectly good lipstick as I really didn’t want the hassle of wearing them again. I love applying the lipstick once in the morning and knowing that as a teacher with no time to get to a mirror, my lips will not be faded and pale but still in tact by the afternoon. Every time I see women reapply after eating I am so tempted to approach them and say ‘try this.’ I really love it and, for a change, it is a product that really lives up to its promises. - Evelyn C.
LipSense is sensational. No more lipstick marks on wine glasses. No more lipstick marks on collars. No more lipstick on pillow cases. It's hard to believe that a lipstick can stay on all day isn't it? Well it's true, it does stay on all day and you can even wake up in the morning looking glamorous. I have never worn a lipstick with such confidence in knowing that I don't have to keep checking to see if it's still on. I can't spread the word fast enough! - Monica T.
I love LipSense!!! From the first time I tried it 7 years ago, I have not used any other lipstick. This is the one lip color that stays on forever no matter what you eat or drink. I have tried all the others that claim to have staying power and none come close to LipSense. - Cheryl Wiot
I love LipSense. My sister introduced me to the product three years ago. I love to combine A Garnet, Cocoa and Raisin. Then I top it off with my Glossy gloss. No longer do I need to reapply my lipstick five or more times a day! And it doesn't come off on my clothes. It's very economical too. I'm a woman of color and I prefer the darker shades. I'm going to try Plum this time. Thanks for such a wonderful product! - Lois A.
I love this product!!!!!! I work in a private practice plastic surgery ambulatory care facility as the Director of Surgical Services. Having said that, I am in the operating room and behind a surgical mask for many hours. Ordinary lipsticks and liners end up either all over my face or the inside of the mask---not attractive. I can put my LipSense on at 5am and it is still looking good (and on my lips!) at 6pm!! It does not feather or fade, doesn't dry out your lips, and you can layer it for the intensity of the color you desire. It is a wonderful product and I recommend you give it a try. The only thing to be aware of is when you start using it, it does kind of tingle with a slight "burning" sensation. Not an issue for me at all. My other recommendation: take your time in applying it, taking off mistakes can be a nuisance but the Ooops! product helps with that! - Catherine
My favorite product is LipSense! No matter what (or how) I eat, it stays on! And on and on…I LOVE it! - Sheri C.
Been using Lip Sense for at least ten years! Don’t use anything else. The colors are great; stay-on power is remarkable. - Ann M.
LipSense has been my very favorite lip product for about 5 years. I use it from morning ’til evening, every day. I love to kiss my grandchildren and it is the only lip product for me. - Maria
I love how your product doesn’t dry out my lips unlike other products. Your price is always the best and so are your color offerings. Great for day and night. Best product out there! Thanks for being so true! - Trish G.
Best lipstick ever made!! Have worn it for 12 years!! - Mary B.
No other lip color can compare to LipSense. It’s long lasting and there’s no smear or running…EVER! - Deanna J.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this!!! Jackie K.
As a dental hygienist, I constantly have to remind women to remove their lipstick before their cleaning procedure. I was totally surprised and amazed that throughout the entire dental procedure, SeneGence LipSense stayed exactly where it is supposed to stay - on the lips. It did not transfer; it did not fade and looked as gorgeous at the end of the dental cleaning procedure as it did when the patient walked into our office. Just a wonderful product. Dental Hygienist Approved. - Yelena K.
I am absolutely in love with LipSense! I apply it in the morning, and it literally stays on all day until I get home from work at 11 at night. I just apply the gloss throughout the day to keep it looking fresh! Even though my meals, working out, going to school, and working nights, my LipSense never fails!! I highly recommend this product!! - Kendra
I love this product! Not only are the colors chic, but they also stay fresh all day. Applying the Glossy Gloss really gives a youthful look. I have been getting compliments on the shade of my lips- something I hadn't had in years! Even at the end of the day, it looks as though it was just applied. Being 51, I am uplifted to have something to smile about, and this LipSense frames my smile nicely! - Jeanine W.
