Many lipsticks are launched promising to be that revolutionary new product that last for up to twelve hours with amazing staying power. Whilst we all buy into a bit of glossy advertising, these long lasting lipsticks often fade after three hours, are sticky or drying and even leave colour stains on your lips (Maybelline is a big offender).
So when I heard there was a new product being launched that actually lasts up to twelve hours I was keen to see if it lived up to its pretty big claim.
Loved by celebrities like Christina Aguilera and Jennifer Aniston, SheerSense Liquid Lip colour comes in 35 glorious shades and aims to provide long lasting colour that doesn’t dry your lips, is waterproof and doesn’t kiss or feather.
The product is made with natural ingredients and with 35 shade to choose from you can mix and match to create your own custom shade. The Shea Butter in the LipSense gloss is perfect for moisturising your lips and repairing them throughout the day.
If you use it regularly SheerSense Lip Colour is designed to last for 4-6 months depending on the use, and has the lifetime of 3 years if you’re more of a casual user.
The colour pigments are so intense that it’s the perfect lipstick to show up in your birthday, wedding or anniversary photos.
As the product has quite a unique formula it has to be used in a certain way. To apply:
- Shake the bottle well before each use
- Apply to clean, dry lips
- Part lips and sweep colour from the outside corner in (it’s important not to sweep the brush across your lips)
- Use three layers for long lasting colour and let each layer dry for around five seconds before applying the next
- Apply the moisturising gloss to seal the colour and make it last longer
On application of the Fuschia shade I felt the colour was quite sharp and pigmented, and that initially there was quite a odd tingling sensation. My lips did feel a little bit dry after applying which was a little disappointing considering they claim the product isn’t drying. Over the course of the day the lip colour started to wear off and after around four hours only a tiny bit remained. Unfortunately this is just another lip product that makes claims that don’t hold true. On the plus side it didn’t really leave any colour patches and it pretty much all faded away.
In retrospect of the price of the product and its longevity I can’t really say it is great value for money. Despite this it does have a lovely bold colour that looks great when applied and it can certainly be updated throughout the day.
I give it 3/5.
