Frequently Asked Questions?
How long does a tube of LipSense last?
- One color worn daily will last typically between 4-6 months. This depends on your lip volume and if you apply 3 thin layers or if you slap it on thick. If you have very full lips with a lot of what I refer to as “real estate”, you can expect to go through the tube in more like 3 months. If you are layering with multiple colors the time will vary. Unlike conventional waxy lipstick, SeneGence will not expire within 6 months and I have actually had clients who have had some colors for over 5 year
- Tip: Apply layers in a thin even motion for best results.
Although LipSense may not expire within the 6 month time frame like most lipsticks, after several years the pigments may change and the staying power may change slightly. Always be sure to shake you product well before applying as this will help you apply it correctly and keep the proper formulation present in the tube.
Does the product have any lead in it?
- No it does not nor has it ever had lead in it.
Does your LipSense color or gloss have wheat or gluten in them?
- No they do not have wheat or gluten in them, but the gloss does contain Shea Butter (nut), so if you have allergies or are sensitive to tree-nuts I would suggest consulting your physican first.
Where can I find ingredients on the products?
- All products we sell have an ingredients list to view. Click here for an example of the ingredients in our Climate Control. Towards the lower half if the page you will see 5 tabs. Ingredients for every product is the middle one.
Do I really need the Ooops Remover? Won’t something else work?
I have been told by some customers that they are able to use other products sometimes to remove the lip color; however this is often due to that product being highly acidic. That also means it will dry out your lips more. Our goal is to have you wear amazing long lasting color and have well hydrated and moisturized lips. Also, what happens if you make a mistake upon applying? Our Ooops remover is like the magic eraser I always say. Simply rub back and forth with even pressure on the mistake and BOOM! It’s like a magic eraser. Ooops also contains moisturizers so you are not only removing your color, but conditioning your lips as well. Ingrediets and detail on Ooops
I have always heard there is no wax in LipSense but I saw that there is wax in the gloss?
- Yes, LipSense is WAX FREE as stated, and the wax you are seeing in the gloss is synthetic beeswax, not derived from animals and used to seal in the Vitamin E and Shea Butter. Ingredients
Synthetic Beeswax? Whats the difference?
- According to Environmental Working Group (EWG),“synthetic beeswax is a wax synthetically derived to be generally indistinguishable from natural beeswax with regard to composition and properties.” It is made by the mixing of fatty acid esters, fatty acids, and alcohols together tocreate a consistency similar to natural beeswax.
- OK, now what does that mean to you? Most cruelty free companies use synthetic beeswax that is free of animal products, but there are some who claim to be vegan yet they use beeswax that may contain lanolin as one of the fatty acids. Lanolin is derived from the wool of sheep, thus their formula is not free of all animal products or bi-products. SeneGence Sysnthetic Beeswax is truly animal free. No lanolin or animal bi-products are used in its formulation.
- Always start with a clean, dry lip. Shake LipSense tube well, but do not bang it as this may weaken the neck and lead to it breaking. Once your color is well shaken and you have heard the inner bead mixing the liquid, apply your first of three layers. Apply in one direction only in a thin, even coat. Allow the layer to dry and repeat two more times. Once all layers have dried, seal the color with your favorite SeneGence gloss. Did you make a mistake? No problem! Simply wipe a little Ooops Remover on the spot and gently wipe away from your lip. Viola! Good as new! I jokenly refer to it as the Magic Eraser as it works quickly and perfectly to remove any mistake.
- As a NEW user, it is best to start with a LipSense Collection, which is a LipSense color of your choiuce, a Gloss and an Ooops Remover. This will give you optimal results!
