Primp Tip: My Lipstick Trick

Primp Tip: My Lipstick Trick

Red lips will always be a classic in my book—and if you look to the runways, the trend is here to stay. While a rouge pout is perfect for a first date or a romantic dinner, leaving a lipstick stain behind on your glass isn’t exactly glamorous. Luckily, there’s an incredibly easy solution! Here’s the trick: Stealthily lick the edge of your glass right before you take a sip. That’s it! This way your lipstick won’t tack-down to the glass and you won’t ruin your color.

Speaking of lipstick, what’s your favorite color this season?

    red with a nude eyeshadow patted over it. and then, taking the same red lipstick, patting it around the edges of my lips and patting it so it’s no so harsh.

  • Gina Mackey

    I have always used powder to lock my colour in. But, licking the glass is something my mom taught me and it does work! :)

  • Mikaylah Brooke

    I love this tip, it is awesome for future references! My favorite shade for winter is a soft maroon, and for spring/late winter is pearly pinks/peaches, along with glossy nude shades (I probably like that look the best, and Yves Saint Laurent is perfect for nude lipsticks…)

    Coral is my favorite lipstick right now:)
