An Honest LipSense Review + My Favorite Colors

December 27, 2017

I shared on my Instagram stories that I have been wearing almost exclusively LipSense lately and asked if anyone would be interested in a post about my experience. Almost 80% of you said yes, so I am here today to deliver an honest LipSense review from a non-seller point of view. It’s hard to link the products on blog posts and my Instagram photos, so I figured this would be easier.

Why Do I Personally Like LipSense?

I’ve never been a huge beauty person though that is changing slightly of late, so I didn’t bother much with lipstick on a regular basis. This was mainly due to two reasons. Reason one is that I found it annoying to have to reapply it throughout the day to maintain the color and/or not end up with a ring of color on the outside of my lips while the inside wore off. Reason number two is that I found it drying. As a person who prefers the feel of lip gloss/chapstick, I could just never find a lipstick that was moisturizing and would stay.

LipSense comes in two stages. You apply the color first (in three coats), and it is essentially lip paint. It is meant to last all day, and from my experience it really does. The second stage is the gloss, and the two combined solved my issues. The color stays all day and feels like wearing lip gloss. I have found that the darker colors stay better than some of the lighter colors.

Pros of LipSense

  • As mentioned above, the color lasts all day.
  • The main pro for me is that is feels like wearing lip gloss.
  • The gloss is moisturizing.
  • LipSense is not tested on animals nor does it have any animal products, and it is all made in the USA.

Cons of LipSense

  • It is expensive. To start you need at least one color and one gloss which are roughly $25 each, so you pay $50 to get started. The pro to this is that the color will last a long time because you only need to apply it once a day. I go through the gloss much faster than the color.
  • I have friends who do not like LipSense because they prefer the feel of regular lipstick. For me, as mentioned above, I love it for the opposite reason. It feels like gloss.
  • Some people say it burns when you apply it or that it drys out their lips at first. This is due to the alcohol in the color which is included to help keep bacteria from growing in the product. However, I did not have either of these experiences. I’m sure it depends on your lips.
  • I have also had friends who have drier lips and they say that it doesn’t apply well on them because of the flakes on their skin. Again, I have not had this experience.

How Do You Buy LipSense?

LipSense is sold through independent consultants. Originally I decided to give it a try because one of my friends at church was selling it. I really like and respect her, and I figured if she was selling it it had to be decent. I thought it was worth a shot to try one color to see if it lived up to the hype. Now I own seven colors…. If you are interested in purchasing, I highly recommend Jamie – you can contact her through her Facebook page or by email at She is also running a 15% off sale through the end of the year, so it’s a great time to try it out. And no, this is not sponsored.

    I know I seen this brand before and it was on Jamie’s page. I like the fact it is a gloss because glosses do not dry out as quick as lipstick! Love the shades you featured.

    I have heard of LipSense but didn’t know much about it! Thanks for sharing your review – I love all these shades, especially the Blu Red (which is a perfect match for your earrings!)
    Hope you had a lovely Christmas

    I clearly need to stop up on LipSense, these shades are all so gorgeous on you! I have the hardest time finding lip color that doesn’t completely suck the moisture out of my lips so this sounds like it might be a great option for me. Happy New Year, Amy!

    This was a great review Amy! I tried LipSense a few months ago and I absolutely loved it! I’ve never liked lip color much until I tried it! Glad you liked it too!

    If I had fuller lips I would definitely try them out! Somehow I always feel like a lipstick looks dumb on me ;(

    I have always heard about LipSense but have yet to try any of their lippies! I think all the colors look really pretty on you, especially the dark pink! I’ll definitely need to take the plunge one day and just try it out. 🙂

    The colors are super cute! I’ve never tried lipsense before but for an all day color I think it’s worth it.

    I love all of these colors. I feel like the alcohol would be drying on me too since my lips really get bad once the winter months hit. Love how you broke everything down, so detailed!

  • Reply Laura December 28, 2017 at 5:31 am

    I have a couple of lipsense colors and really like their staying power. I don’t have to worry about lipstick on my teeth or that ring around the outside of my lips like you mentioned! I need to try some of the colors you have! They are gorgeous!
