LipSense is NOT a stain; it doesn't penetrate the skin and go into the blood stream. LipSense is a patented molecular bond, meaning it sticks to your skin and that is why you have to have clean and dry lips.
SD40 alcohol is the delivery system for LipSense. It is thinner than water. After you apply LipSense, the SD40 alcohol dissipates quickly, only leaving the color in place. It also keeps the product bacteria-free for the life of the tube.
If you experience any burning or tingling, it means your lips are dehydrated; the skin is damaged, leaving nerve endings exposed... So heal those lips!!!
The patent is in the color, it would stay on without the gloss, but the gloss is the moisture. There is no moisture value in the color It is a system that works together.
The more you hydrate your lips, the better they feel and look! Drink water, use SeneGence gloss and STAY AWAY FROM Wax products. Your lips will become more plump and you will begin to notice fewer lines in your lips!!!! Your lips will be in the best condition ever
