Things I Wish I Knew Sooner: This Hack for Move-Proof Lipstick

If I had to choose, I think my favorite makeup buy would be lipstick. Or any kind of lip product, really—gloss, stains, tint—I’ll take it all. That’s because when it comes to my makeup looks, I rely on a statement lip to really pull its weight. In fact, as of my last count, I have about 25 different lipsticks, lip glosses, and lip stains. They range in hue from pink and red to coral and tangerine to aubergine and merlot. What can I say? I love variety.

But there used to be one hiccup to my lipstick love: It used to smudge or fade a little too easily. So I’d be reapplying product after every sip or bite pretty much. It got really annoying, and it was a waste of lipstick!
