The trick to making your gloss stick around a lot longer is to layer up your lips.
Start by filling in your entire mouth with a lip liner that matches the natural shade of your lips. This creates a base for your lipcolor to grab onto. Next, apply a creamy neutral lipstick in a similar shade to the liner. Blot away the excess to tone down the color intensity, then brush on a healthy dose of your gloss.
In general, thick, shimmer-flecked formulas tend to last longer than sheer ones. And if you have a habit of licking your lips when you’re wearing gloss, opt for an unscented, unflavored lipgloss to help nix the temptation of eating away at the goods.
