LipSense Recipes

If you’re like me, you like to play with your color choices and mix and match for new shade variations.

When applying LipSense, apply three thin coats, allowing 10-15 seconds between each layer for drying time. Here are some things to consider when mixing LipSense colors.

  1. Choose “Matte” colors for bottom layers. Matte colors are more opaque and offer full coverage. They are great for base colors.
  2. “Shimmers” and “Frosts” are better as top layers since they are sometimes more sheer and light reflective.
  3. Consider using a darker shade of LipSense on the outer edges of your lips for a soft gradation of color. This can make smaller lips appear more full. This can be done instead of lip liners for a more subtle look.
  4. Almost any shade can be softened and toned down with an application of sand gloss. It is a warm gloss that can tone down a bright color. If you find a color too bright, you have some options. Add a lighter top coat of another color and sand gloss.

The possibilities are endless. All colors and shades can be adjusted with a little color-mixing. I’d love to hear about your favorite LipSense recipes.

      Hi Sherry. There are two glosses that tone down the color- Pearl Gloss and Sand Gloss. I would choose Pearl if you normally wear cool colors and Sand if you wear warm. The other option is to layer with another color. A top layer of Pink Champagne, for example, is a great way to tone down a brighter/darker color you have as a first layer.
      I hope that helps.

        Hi Linda, I do expect Napa to “come back” but I do not have it in stock at the moment. It’s scheduled to be released but it isn’t available for purchase since the company has not released it in many months. The close colors I have available are Mulled wine, Lexie Beary, Dark Pink and Berry.
        I hope that helps. And of course I will let you know as soon as Napa is back.

    Do you carry plum? I didnt see it on the order form? I need to order a gloss but am unsure which one. I ordered bella and i like the color but want something a little darker. Any advice?

    • Sonya Thompson says:

      Plum has not been released in about 6 months so I don’t have that one, but I do have a few similar. I would suggest Berry, Lexie-Beary, Mulled Wine or Napa (which I just got).

      Hi Estelle. Goddess was a limited edition. I have Pink Champagne, which is very close to Goddess.
      Hope that helps.
