SeneGence recently sent out the following information regarding LipSense to distributors in the US, Australia and Canada. SeneGence does a wonderful job of providing us with useful information and aids to educate women on this incredible cosmetic line.
LipSense by SeneGence Long Lasting Liquid Lip Color is a non wax liquid lip color that stays on your skin for quite a while â€“ a period of time ranging from a couple of hours up to 24 hours on some. How does it work?
HERE IS THE SCIENCE BEHIND LIPSENSE
LipSense Long Lasting Liquid Lip Color is made of a combination of ingredients some of which are:
SD Alcohol â€“ 40 â€“ SD Alcohol 40 is nothing close to isopropyl alcohol â€“ or rubbing alcohol. In fact you need SD Alcohol 40 to apply LipSense to your skin. Rubbing alcohol instantly removes LipSense from the skin. (We do not recommend the use of rubbing alcohol on the skin because it dries out skin.) We formulate LipSense with SD Alcohol 40 because:
It is thinner than water and suspends the tiny particles within the formulae.
It evaporates from the skin upon the delivery of the technology to the skin. (Tinglingâ€ sensation felt on the lips when some first begins to use the color is the evaporation process of the SD Alcohol 40. This disappears as lower layers of skinâ€™s moisture content is restored through the use of the gloss.)
Tiny Particles â€“ The particles that help the color pigments to molecularly bind to the skin. (See Ingredient listing) Over time, the particles begin to â€˜detachâ€™ from the skinâ€™s surface. The rate at which this occurs varies tremendously and is based upon the pH-balance of any one personsâ€™ skin and the color theyâ€™ve chosen to wear for the day.
Color Pigments– Each tube of color has a varied formulation of which is used to arrive at a single color â€“ often involving the use of many different color pigments. Some colors naturally last longer than others as some are thicker or richer in color pigmentations, while some are sheer and â€˜thinnerâ€™ than others
Layering LipSense– Layering LipSense Semi Permanent Lipstain is a must due to the fact the color breaks down with the pH balance of the skin.
1st layer â€“ touches the skinâ€™s pH and will begin to break down first and fastest.
2nd layer â€“ protected from the bottom away from the skinâ€™s pH by the first layer.
3rd layer â€“ protects the 2nd layer from the top down â€“ prevents sheering of 2nd layer of color by keeping friction and saliva away.
The 3rd layer breaks down just like the 1st layer, but from the top down â€“ The 2nd layer is sandwiched in between the 1st and the 3rd and is protected by both layers – for the longest period of use.
Bold Color â€“ Sheer Look – If you like sheer colors but want to wear a thicker formulation that you know; once three layers is delivered to the skin will be too deep of a color than you are looking for â€“ try layering 2 coats of a sheer color first â€“ like Pink Shimmer or Beige Champagne as an â€˜under coatâ€™. Once 2 layers as been applied add the chosen color as the 3rd coat. (Depending upon the color â€“ you may need only one under coat of another color.)
Staying Power of Mica – LipSense Lip Colors formulated with micas do not tend to wear as long as the solid matte shades of LipSense. Micas create shine and shimmer. They reflect light and are made of particles that are larger than color pigments. Micas may â€˜flick offâ€™ the skin with regular skin movements. Talking and scraping lip movements like drinking from a cup can facilitate this process. You can assume up to an hours time less wear time when wearing a mica color. (Heyâ€¦â€¦ Iâ€™ll take 4 â€“ 10 hours of wear any day!)
