I'm doing my own makeup for our wedding. I got all done practicing for the second time and realized that my lipstick is going to come off all over my groom! I had even intentionally chosen an Aveda lipstick because I have EXTREMELY sensitive lips. I've never smoked, but my lips peel every day. I have a solution for this to keep them soft and not cracking, but most lipsticks make me look like I have deep creases in my lips. I know a lot of women who have the same problem.
I went on the hunt today for a lipstick that won't transfer - YEAH RIGHT, I thought. My mom and MOH suggested some drug store long wear lipsticks, but lipsticks and stains have just never worked for me, hence why I use Aveda when I want a color. I dropped by Ulta and one of the women working suggested I use a liner pencil to color in my entire lip.
This was genius! It worked perfectly on my very difficult lips. I blotted, set it with some powder, and I ate and drank (through a straw) with it and it wore great. I even put my lips to my hand a few times to see if it would transfer, and there was just the slightest shadow of color. It worked great. The specific lip liner I chose was Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil
in Bad Blood. FYI, the only thing that kind of blows about this particular pencil is that you need a special sharpener for it - UD Grindhouse. So if you don't want to deal with that, pick one that uses a universal sharpener
. Hopefully this works for someone!
