I think I have mentioned it before, but it may be worth repeating my trick for lipstick that stays on all night. Max factors "Lipfinity" everlasting lipstick really stays on for a long, long time. The problem is that the colors, especially the bright red, is not bright enough. And when the lipstick comes of, it does so in a peeling, cracking not flattering way. So here is what I do: I first put on a coat of "Lipfinity" in a color that is simiar to the lipstick I want to use. When that coat is still wet I put on a coat of highly pigmented creamy lipstick in the color I want. I have used everuthing from Besame ang Guerlain to Cover Girl, and it all worked nice. The point is to find a really creamy lipstick with much color. It is important to put on the lipstick while the "Lipfinity" is wet, that way the two lipsticks combines to create a exremely longlating, but not dry lipstick. To make this work, you might have work on the lower and upper lip seperately, as the "Lipfinity" doesn't take that long to dry. It all depends on how fast you work! After "Lipfinity" and lipstick, I use blotting paper to blot my lips, and then put on a second coat of lipstick. Any paper works, but blotting paper is best, as it blots without removing color. Oh, and the "finger in your mouth" trick is so important. It's the only way to remove the lipstick that otherwise ends up on your teeth! I don't use lipliner, as I find that the "lipfinity" works great for that purpose as well. I have tried powdering, blotting and lipliner, but I find that nothing can beta this lipstick combo when it comes to bright color, nice texture and staying power. If I eat a really greasy dinner, I might want to freshen up the color. But that's really it: The color stays on and on, the worst that can happen is that it dulls a little. But far less than with other methods! But nothing comes without a price: Lon lasting lipstick can really dry out lips, and this is no exeption. So use a toothbrush on your lips, or a lipscrub. (Everyday Minerals has a nice one made of pure shea butter beads.) And don't use this method everyday. Reserve it for the really bright colors, when it's needed. (If you want to know: I use the "lipfinity"colors "120" bright red, "108", brownish red and "65" purple red, and find that they work OK as a base to all of my lipstick needs. ) Last, but not least: If you are really consious about leaving a red mark on your glass: Lick the rim of the glass. (When no-one sees you!.) I know. But it works.
