What do you all use to help keep your lipstick on longer.?  I use the Bite primer and a cream based lipstick, but 30 minutes later, my lipstick has worn off.  Is it better to use a matte lipstick and gloss?  Any brands that you can recommend?  


Re: Lipstick

Sometimes I'll pat a little setting powder on my lips to make traditional lipsticks last longer. But if I really want my lips to last I use a lip product that's meant to be more long lasting than a traditional lipstick. These are a few liquid lipsticks I like. But if you want something that wears more like a traditional lipstick you might like the lipstick pencils from NARS. They're a go to for me and they last really well. Also, I've found lipsticks generally last the longest if they're just used on their own on your bare lips. Applying over a primer or balm makes them disappear quicker. And putting a gloss over usually does too. Longer lasting lipsticks tend to be more drying. But the trick is to make sure your lips are well hydrated and smooth ahead of time. I always make sure I sleep with a good lip mask the night before.

@Sleebailey Have you tried using a lipliner all over the lips and then applying lipstick on top and then placing a tissue over the lips and blotting it with powder on top?

Re: Lipstick

I think it’s less about what additional products can be used and more about the lipstick itself that determines how long it wears. Primers are usually silicone so they help smooth out fine lines but actually shorten the wear because of the slip.


A matte liquid lip will always wear longer than a cream or gloss. Stains also help to make the color fading less obvious. I like the SEPHORA COLLECTION Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick and hear the FENTY BEAUTY by Rihanna Stunna Lip Paint Longwear Fluid Lip Color Unattached  is great as well.
