A Sunday Kind of Love: LipSense/SheerSense Liquid Lip Colour

March 25, 2012

When shooting in Vegas, make up artist LaVey asked what I’d like on my lips, “bright pink please” was my reply (obviously!) “Well I’ve got something that will blow your socks off,” she replied, “this stuff won’t budge all day.”

And she wasn’t kidding.

When we wrapped shooting at 5.30pm the lip stain still looked exactly as it did when she applied it that morning. I’d eaten, drunk, talked, giggled…all in the desert heat, and this stuff was still there! Nope, I wouldn’t have believed it myself if it wasn’t me wearing it! Look at these photos if you’re still not convinced… (I’m wearing ‘Fuchsia’)

When I returned to the UK I knew I had to get my hands on some of this LipSense wonder stain (it’s called SheerSense over here in the UK). When I tried it at home I was just as impressed so I wanted to share some of the results with you guys too. The website’s (there’s a US site and UK site) aren’t the most impressive and in fact the product packaging leaves a lot to be desired, but it’s what’s inside that packaging that counts!

These photos were all taken on the same day on my phone. I’m wearing ‘Party Pink’.

The first, at 8am…(wow that’s a tired face!)

The second at midday…(still looking kinda snoozy but my lips look great!)

And the third, during a night out partying with Assassaynation, I couldn’t tell you the exact time this photo was taken…maybe 10pm? 

You can either wear just one layer for a more subtle look or layer it up for a stronger coverage. I’ve applied about 3 layers of colour (allowing each to dry in between). I didn’t need to top up the colour at all but I did keep applying the gloss top coat to keep my lips moisturised otherwise it has a tendency to flake off a bit.

So there you go. I hope you love this stuff as much as I do. Quite franky it’s the perfect product for your wedding day as it will withstand all those kisses (and not come off on your partner – bonus!)
