If you have very dry, dehydrated, flaky lips and a first time user of LipSense® allow approx. 2-3 days of exfoliation, your lips will be the best they have ever been and with continual use you will never experience dry, flaky lips again! GUARANTEED!
Another tip for very dry lips: Use our Shea Butter Gloss for the first 2-3 days prior to LipSense application, this will further hydrate your lips.
LipSense® Long Lasting Liquid Lip Colour is made of a combination of ingredients.
Here are a few key components:
SD Alcohol 40 is nothing close to isopropyl alcohol - or rubbing alcohol. In fact, you need SD Alcohol 40 to apply LipSense® to your skin. Rubbing alcohol instantly removes LipSense® from the skin.
We formulate LipSense® with SD Alcohol 40 because...
It is thinner than water and suspends the tiny particles within the formula.
It 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 colour, is the evaporation process of the SD Alcohol 40. This disappears as lower layers of skin's moisture content are restored from use of the Shea Butter gloss.
The particles that help the colour pigments to molecularly bind to the skin. 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 any one person's skin and the colour they've chosen to wear for the day.
Each tube of colour has a varied formulation of which is used to arrive at a single colour – often involving the use of many different colour pigments. Some colours naturally last longer than others, as some are thicker or richer in colour pigmentations, while some are sheer and thinner than others.
Layering LipSense® is a must due to the fact the colour breaks down with the pH balance of the skin.
Touches the skin's pH and will begin to break down first and fastest.
Protected from the bottom, away from the skin's pH, by the first layer.
Protects the second layer from the top down and prevents sheering of second layer of colour by keeping away friction and saliva.
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.
