I had a few friends rave about LipSense, and I was immediately curious. Four tubes later and I’m a convert. That stuff stays put! It stays put so well that getting it off can be a bit of a challenge. I have the Oops remover they sell, but I typically use that when I make an application goof. For removing LipSense at the end of the night, I’ve found a glycerin facial soap works best. (If you’re looking for a LipSense distributor, check out my friend Libby’s Facebook group!)
Of course a bar of soap isn’t the most elegant lip color removal solution. Not to mention that a full bar of soap takes up way too much precious makeup bag space when traveling. Luckily it’s pretty easy to upcycle a lip balm container into a perfect and portable LipSense remover!
I attempted to use a regular tube style lip balm in additon to an EOS container. The EOS container worked well. The tube? Not so much.
Take an empty EOS container and use a craft blade or knife to separate the two plastic pieces that form the base. You can see the line in the picture where you’ll want to insert the blade.
Make sure you’ve completely removed all traces of lip balm from the top of your container and from the base. Screw the piece that looks like a wagon wheel into the top of your EOS container.
Slice up about one inch of your bar of soap into small pieces and microwave them until they’re completely melted. It should only take about 30 seconds, so keep a close eye on things!
Carefully pour the melted soap into the top of the EOS container. Place it in the freezer for a few minutes until the soap hardens.
Line up the thumb notches on the EOS container and pop the top and the bottom together. You should be able to now unscrew the top to expose your LipSense remover.
To remover your LipSense, just wet the soap, apply it just like you would lip balm, and wipe off. If you have on extra layers or a darker color, it might take two swipes to fully remove your color.
