Lipstick repeatedly rubbing off on the front teeth.

Does anyone else have this problem? It seems like all the smiling causes my teeth to get covered in these super high shine/wet gloss high color plumping volumnizing lipsticks that flood shelves these days (well all lipsticks actually). Is there anything I can do to stop this?

P.S Was Vaseline only for keeping your lip from sticking to your teeth or for other things as well?

I was taught this trick by an old drag-queen friend many, many years ago: after you've put the lipstick on and blotted it, stick your index finger in your mouth and purse your lips around it, then slowly pull it back out. It should leave a ring of lipstick around the base of your finger and keep you from getting any on your teeth.

Another thing you can do is "seal" it with a clear shine formula over the top. A bunch of different makeup lines have some kind of lipstick sealer.

This may not work if you don't have fuller lips, but another trick is to simply keep your mouth shut when applying lipstick (use a brush). That way, nothing goes in, nothing comes out.

try blotting with a single ply of tissue between coats. that will remove excess lipstick.

i find that tissue sticks to my lips, but those oil-absorbing papers that clean and clear (well, and other companies, but I use clean and clear) work awesome! Not only do they take off shine from your face, but they work awesomely for blotting lipstick too!

That drag queen finger technique is awesome! I tested it out last night and it did the trick. I could eat, laugh, and stick my tounge out with out problems.

Glad it worked for you. :) I've learned some of my best makeup techniques from drag queens. Sometimes I think they know more about being a woman than I do. *g*
