Is Your Lipstick Getting Mouthy?

Anonymous wondered how she could stop lipstick from getting onto her teeth.

First, apply with a brush. This limits over-distribution and lends a more even finish.  After the initial application, blot lightly with a tissue.  If you wish, separate a tissue into one ply, and tap some powder onto your lips through the tissue to really set the product.  Apply another layer of lipstick if you prefer a more creamy look. Blot again. This method improves the wear-time as well as making it less likely to transfer (especially to teeth!)

Once you’ve finished, form your mouth into an “O”-shape around your middle finger, and draw it out.  A bit of lipstick should have come off on it.  This is the product that would have rubbed off onto your teeth.
