Try lipstain — MAC and Benefit both sell lip stain, Sephora does as well.

i second the lip stain.  the benefit one is great.  gives your lips a rosy color and it never comes off nor can you feel it.

Have you tried any of the lip balms with color?  Burts Bees makes some amazing ones – great color, feels like chapstick, tastes sort of minty.  I personally hate wearing lipstick for the same reasons you listed, but I love Burts.  Good luck!

My fiance hates any sort of lip residue, too! Burt’s Bee’s pomegranate lip balm is one of the few things that doesn’t seem to bother him, so I’m thinking I might combine that with a lip stain for the big day. 

Whatever you choose, make sure you kiss him with it on before the big day just to make sure he’s comfortable with it. Hm.. I may have to purchase multiple lip stains just so I can get lots of practice!

Watch out!  If you have sensitive skin like I do, the Burts Bees might cause lip peeling.  I also think it has an icky taste.  I know it sounds awful, but I switched to Burts Bees because it’s more eco-concious, but I soon found out my sensitive skin couldn’t handle it.  My lips would get kind of itchy feeling, then start peeling just the slightest bit.  It wasn’t very attractive, and I got sick of the bitterness real quick.  If you want to do Burt’s, try it a few times before the wedding, but better to start a few weeks ahead of time so if you do peel at all, it clears up before the wedding.

As an alternative, I would reccomend some kind of lip stain with Neutrogena Lip Boost over it.  Lip Boost is expensive, like seven bucks/tube, but it is amazing.  It plumps and soften your lips, but totally absorbs like lotion does on your skin, so theirs zero residue once you’ve rubbed your lips together a few times.  Your FH might really like it, because your lips will feel sooo incredibly smooth, but he probably won’t even sense that anything’s on them.

is he cool with chapstick? I too am doing a lipstain and instead of a gloss over it I’m doing a chapstick. That is the ONLY thing he is ok with, the chapstick/stain combo. It took him sometime to get used to it but he’s cool with it now, since I ALWAYS have chapstick on my lips, I’m an addict. Nivea has a phenomenal lip balm/chapstick type thing. It’s super smooth and glides.

Here’s what I’d do.

I’d do lipstain and gloss before the ceremony and get pics like that so you look fabulous.  Then right before you walk down the aisle, head to bathroom and have makeup artist or friend take the gloss off and touch up the lip stain and then head down the aisle.  After the kiss is sealed, then head back or on the way to the reception I’d gloss up again for more pictures.

I like bellenga’s suggestion!  That way he won’t feel the lip stain (unless it’s one of the bad kind that dries out your lips) and you will still have color for the ceremony pics!

I’ve used MAC’s Pro Longwear and really like it.  Trick is to make sure the first layer is really really dry before applying the “gloss” layer.  MAC just came out with a new stain product – Pro Lpngwear Lipstain Marker.  It looks really easy to use.
