In picking out the right lipstick, an individual must take into consideration the product’s color and finish as well as her the natural shade of her lips and her skin tone. The first step is to start with clean and bare lips. Apply some lip balm or petroleum jelly to moisturize and smoothen the lips and reduce the crevices.

Utilize a lip liner. Most people commit the mistake of using a liner with a color that matches the lipstick. This should not be the case. The liner should match the natural color of the lips. Make small dots at various points on the outline or edge of the lips. Connect the dots by drawing the liner very lightly. A tip for making lipstick last a long time is to use the liner as a base. This is a tried-and-tested technique of a lot of makeup artists.

Apply lipstick with one or two swipes of the lipstick tube. Most users find a lipstick brush to be more effective in terms of cost and more precise for application. Ensure that the lips are coated evenly and see to it that the color reaches all the way to the corner of the lips. The last step is to blot with a facial tissue to even out the texture, soak up excess color and set the stain. As a final touch, some people add a little bit of lip-gloss.

Do not forget to exfoliate the lips once or twice a week. Doing so will reveal plumper and smoother lips. Just run warm water over a soft toothbrush and brush lightly over the lips to scrub away those dry, dead and dull skin cells. A gentle washcloth will also do the trick. Exfoliating is an important part of lip care maintenance which many people neglect to do.

Revlon’s ColorStay Overtime Lipcolor –Lipstick to the Rescue

The following is a Guest/Reader review of Revlon Color-Stay Lipcolor.

Revlon’s ColorStay Overtime Lipcolor saved me from my unsuccessful search for the perfect lipstick. I wanted lipstick that I only had to apply once a day. I am a pretty simple person, but I do feel better when I have my lipstick on even if I’m not wearing other makeup. Other brands state their lipsticks have staying power of 8 or more hours, but they didn’t work for me. When I tried those other brands I found I had to reapply my lipstick often. When I apply ColorStay Overtime Lipcolor, I know it won’t wear off and that I will have it on all day even after eating or kissing my special someone. Sometimes my color is still visible the next day.

Revlon Color Stay Lip Color Review

ColorStay Overtime Lipcolor comes in a small tube that conveniently has lipstick on one side of the tube and liquid lip gloss on the other side. While I prefer a solid stick of lip gloss, this one does help keep my lips feeling moisturized after applying the lipstick which can be a little drying to the lips. There are many colors to choose from and it seems as though Revlon continues to introduce new colors from time to time.

One of the downsides to this lipstick is finding the right color. In stores where Revlon is sold, there are plastic tiles that are supposed to show you how the color will look. Unfortunately, I have found that the color tiles aren’t always accurate, nor are looking at the colors of the tubes themselves. You may end up with a color that is much lighter or darker than what you were looking for. I have now found a couple of colors that work well for me and I am so happy to apply them in the morning and forget about my lips for the rest of the day. It’s just one less thing to worry about. Love, love, love this lipstick.
