LipSense® by SeneGence®<!- Begin Bryan ->
Today I have a different (non polish) review for you, I am testing out the long-lasting LipSense® by SeneGence® lipcolor. I know many of you have seen those magical videos floating around Instagram and Facebook of a lip product that seemingly lasts through anything. I was able to receive this product and wanted to test it out to see how it held up under different circumstances.
According to LipSense® by SeneGence® :
The premier product for SeneGence®, LipSense is a patented, amazing departure from conventional lipsticks and lip colors. LipSense is versatile in that you can mix shades to create a number of effects.
- Unique product is waterproof and does not kiss off, smear off, rub off, or budge off!
- Does not dry out your lips – it works to restore the moisture content
- Color lasts anywhere between 4 and 18 hours
This shade is a rosey pink that has red undertones and subtle golden shimmer. It applies more like a gloss in terms of coverage but dries to a matte finish. This shade is on the sheer side and while the directions say to apply 3 layers you may need more to achieve a deeper color payoff.
I was really excited to review this lipcolor, until I read the ingredients. I was sad to see this contains “parfum” (most liquid/long-lasting lipcolors do not) and knew I would be allergic to it. For the sake of science I tried it anyway and I developed bad cystic acne around my chin, one of the more severe allergic reactions I have to fragrance. So for the demo I used my hand ( I did notice itching afterwards but did not have a severe reaction). *edit- I found out that parfum is a required additive due to the denatured alcohol, otherwise they wouldn’t be able to sell to anyone under 21. Darn kids! 😉
I also noticed a burning sensation on my lips after application, a “tingling” sensation is said to be expected but I felt it was a bit stronger than a tingle. This went away after it dried. I also found that it wasn’t moisturizing like it claims to be, but it also didn’t dry out my lips.
It does have a good wear time and seems to fade off rather than flake or peel. If you aren’t allergic to fragrance/parfum I think it’s worth checking out, but if you are I would stay away as to avoid reactions.

Im so glad to read your blog I tried lipsense on the weekend on Sunday I now have 3 coldsores on my lower lip and a bad ulcer on my gum 🙁
I’ve been wanting try this brand for awhile now.
Wow! I have to say, I am both deeply impressed and a bit frightened by how well it stayed put through all of your demos. I love long lasting makeup, but also am a bit hesitant if the removal process is a daunting task. What would you recommend as the best method of removal for this type of lipstick?
My friend Traci says she use the Neutrogena cleansing bar to remove it, otherwise is will fade off after hours of wear.
