How to prevent lipstick from bleeding

Hi all,  I've had issues lately with my lipstick " bleeding"  I always line my lips with a similiar color of lipstick and have tried the concealer trick also but still end up with the same issue.

 

Any suggestions or brands to try ?  I remember years ago my mom purchased a product specifically for this issue... Lipfix I think it was by Clinique...

 

TIA

Teddy

Use a lipliner pencil in the same shade as your lipsticl.  Outline your lips and then apply the lipstick.  It should not bleed out of the line.

I have taken to using concealer on my lips before any lipstick. I always line and fill in, then lipstick. If I want it to really stay, I cover my lips with tissue and buff in powder.

 

If I am using gloss I will use DuWop Reverse Lip Liner, a clear chubby pencil all around my lips.

I use a clear lip liner.

 

There are many different ones out there. I was using one by Avon that I liked in their glimmersticks line.

I take a little face powder on a puff and "puff" the powder on my lips, including slightly above the upper lip.  If you use too much, "blot" with the powder puff.  It ALWAYS works for me.

Lip Fix is by Elizabeth Arden. I also used it years ago so I bought it recently but I

don't know that it works as well as I remembered!

This was the best product I found last year. ELF's liplock pencil. Only $3 and I don't ever put lipstick on without it!

I have the same issue!  It really makes me mad.  If I try and wear a lipstick that has a little more color to it, which I like, since I am pale and washed out looking without it, then I get this migrating of color.  I am constantly using a tissue and wiping around the edges.  

 

I guess the best way to avoid it is to use a lighter gloss, which I do at times, but it just isn't as flattering on me.

 

I am going to try again the old method of applying lipstick - blotting it a lot -- then lightly applying again --- and see if that works.

Is this a liner, or do you apply it all over? 

 

I buy a lot of this line but I haven't seen this product.  I'm going to look again today for it.
