I bought a beautiful pink lipstick by YSL that I’m going to wear for my civil ceremony. I don’t want it to smudge — any suggestions on how to keep it from smudging when I kiss FI? (I don’t really want to put a lipstain on top, since that might alter the color.) Gracias!

@bombaysapphire_13: lip primer as PP said, apply lipstick, blot, apply powder, apply lipstick, blot, apply powder, apply lipstick, then blot again so it doesn’t transfer. Lock that baby in 🙂

Drugstore brand color stays work Very well! Use a light coat and then light coat of the gloss. They do feel a bit pastey/tacky but they stay soooo well. And yes dabbing some powder like some eye shadow will help it last longer. The powder is an old trick.

What is the name of the YSL pink lipstick you are going to wear? I’m always on the hunt for a beautiful pink lipstick and we are similar in coloring (i saw your beautiful pic in your contacts/glasses thread). Thanks!

Lip Cote is an amazing lipstick sealer, but you may have to buy online because I believe it is only sold in the UK

If you’re okay with checking out a different lipstick, also by YSL is Rogue Pur Couture which are amazing! I bought one shade (Fushia Cubiste) to wear for my wedding, and now own like 6 of them. They are basically a gloss/stain hybrid (or that’s my best description). They go on and stay really well like a stain, but are glossy when you first apply. If you drink water or kiss someone in teh first hour you applied, a little will transfer. On my wedding day I lined my lips with Urban Decay’s 24/7 liner, then applied my lipstick (with a brush). I forgot to dab it off a little, but I drank tea so that worked (my travel mug has a white silicone top and there were some definite lip prints). I kissed my husband several times and no issues at all – none on him and none smeared all over my face. I also sprayed Urban Decay’s All Nighter spray that keeps your makeup on longer on my face with an extra squirt on my lips

These are great tips! I was wondering this the other day.
@MsLobizon: I love YSL’s Rougue Pur Couture! My SIL got me one for Christmas and I love it. Unfortunately I love it too much and feel the need to buy more.

@vani810: Well, thank you! The color I’m planning on wearing is “Rouge volupte shine fuschia in excess” by ysl. Wow, that’s a mouthful.
And thanks, bees, for all the good tips!
