How do I make lip color really last?
Layering your color is the key to making it last, especially if you alternate a dry layer with a creamy one. So start by lining and filling in your lips completely with lip pencil, then apply a thick coat of lipstick, blot, and reapply another light coat of color.
To make a glossy formula stay on your lips, you need to give it a matte surface to which it can adhere. Start with either a coat of matte lipstick or a layer of lip pencil before applying your gloss.
Your lipstick color will last if you apply one coat, blot by pressing your lips together on a tissue and then apply another coat. This won't leave lips feeling dry the way powdering your lips between coats can.
