Everyone who knows me knows me knows that I LOVE trying new beauty products and when I heard that there was a lip gloss claiming to not only last ALL day but also be smudge proof, I couldn’t believe it. I love red lipstick, and other bright colors, but I know that when I bite into a sandwich, or my hair blows the wrong way, there it goes….all over the place. It’s annoying but I just assumed it was part of the price to pay for rocking a bright lip color, just like cute shoes that aren’t comfortable.

**I have partnered with Brooke, an independent distributor with LipSense to bring you a solution to a problem many women, like myself, have each day.** A first world problem, yes…. but there’s a solution! And here’s what you can do!

When Brooke told me about LipSense by SeneGence, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on some and try it for myself because let’s be honest, I was TOTALLY skeptical….but I was also very intrigued and secretly hoping it would really work. How silly, right?

So, I ordered two colors to try, a bright red and a pink (see colors below). In order for this product to work, you have to purchase a starter kit that contains one color, a setting gloss, and Oops! remover (in case you mess up or wish to remove it sooner). So I have one full kit and then I added an extra color to mine.

Beauty Review: Is LipSense REALLY Smudge Proof?How Does it Work?

The application process is really easy. First, you make sure your lips are exfoliated. Then, you apply a layer of color. Do not be surprised at the sensation- it will feel a bit tingly, that is totally normal. Wait a few seconds for it to dry and apply three more layers of color to your lips allowing each to dry before applying the next layer. Once the color has dried, apply a layer or two of the gloss. This will give the desired smooth and glossy appearance and keep your lips moisturized. That’s it! If you mess up, you can use the Oops remover. (WATCH THE VIDEO TUTORIAL BELOW!)

Is it REALLY Smudge Proof and all that Other Stuff?!

Once your lips are done, they are smudge proof, water proof, kiss proof, and will last you all day long. I still can’t believe that after applying this product, I can rub my finger along my lips and nothing will come off at all! Not on my face, not on a towel, not on clothing, or a glass, or even a white piece of paper! That’s right, the brightest red color won’t come off on a white piece of paper. I had to try it for my own eyes because that seemed totally impossible! But it really does work and it is so cool! I will do a demonstration below in the video!

How Did I Put LipSense to the Test?

So the smudge proof part is totally accurate. Now for the long lasting part. I put this product to the test in three ways. First, I wanted to see if it would last all day. I applied it in the morning and by the time I was ready to go to bed, it looked exactly the same! To test it even further, I went to bed with the LipSense on, and much to my surprise, I awoke to a clean pillow and bright red lips just like the day before! They only faded in a couple places but were overall almost the same! Then, I recently worked a promotional event here in Utah, in the summer, in upper 90 degree heat. I was curious to see how the LipSense would hold up all day under heat. Guess what? I left my house at 5:30 AM with the product on. When I returned home around 7pm, it was still there, still bright as ever and no smudges! The only difference I experienced here was that my lips were a bit more dry so I think applying the gloss once more throughout the day would have been perfect.

Over the weekend, my family went on a trip to Atlantis Resort in Reno, Nevada and spent the day in the pool with our boys. Through breakfast, swimming, lunch, more swimming, and dinner, guess what? Not a smudge! It was amazing!

So, What’s the Verdict? Hit or Miss?

Overall it’s an AMAZING product and one that is different from everything else I’ve tried or seen advertised. I’m truly surprised that more people don’t know about LipSense. I’m also a big fan! I get a LOT of compliments about this product and people can’t believe the “smudge proof” part of it because we’ve all had that awkward moment where lipstick ends up on your teeth or somewhere else it shouldn’t be. This product certainly makes me feel confident and as a busy mom who certainly doesn’t have time to reapply makeup throughout the day, I LOVE the durability of LipSense!

Beauty Review: Is LipSense REALLY Smudge Proof?

The Blu-Red is my FAVORITE! I LOVE red lips! I get SO many compliments on this color and people can’t even believe how this doesn’t smudge at all. I didn’t even believe it until I tried for myself!

The pictures don’t even do it justice, so I decided to make a video because I want you to really see just how AMAZING this product is! (And this is coming from a girl who has had many awkward makeup moments from lipstick smeared across my face to lipstick all over my sandwich or burger. Ugh… I never thought anything could fix that and I wasn’t about to give up my bright lip colors, so now I don’t even have to!)
