Guest post from ablushingblonde | Top Tips for Kiss-Proof Lips

Hope you’re all excited for Valentine’s Day on Friday, whether you’re with friends or a special someone! I’m Lizzie and I blog at I live in London, and my love for beauty is only seconded by my love of Maths – I’m a complete geek! I post every other day on my blog, and I focus mainly on beauty and life, with some fashion thrown in! Thanks so much to Lizzie for letting me guest post, and I hope you all take in a tip or two from this post, and check out my blog once you've finished this!

Step 1: Exfoliate and Moisturise
Before applying any lip colour I like to exfoliate my lips using a lip scrub as it removes any chapped bits and lets your lip colour apply smoother – the ones from Lush are amazing, but I have a recipe on my blog of how to make one at home! Then you need to moisturise your lips about 5 minutes prior to applying your lip colour in order to let in sink in. BabyLips are the bomb but Nuxe and Balmi also do great lip balms.

Step 2: Apply your lip colour
Long-lasting lip products are easy to find on the high street, but two of my favourite kissable but kiss-proof lip products are the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains and the Max Factor Lipfinity Lipcreams. The Revlon are so easy to apply and wear off well, but can last up to 6 hours! I’ve worn one of these whilst eating a burger so they last! The Max Factor take a while to dry, but once they’re down they ain’t coming up! These stick around through eating, drinking, chatting, and, yes, kissing!

Or, if you’re more of a lipstick kinda-gal, then apply a lip liner before your lipstick. Blot, then apply a thin layer with a lipbrush. Blot again, then apply normally. This should create a stain-like effect underneath your lipstick, leaving it there all night long!
I hope you enjoyed this post, make sure you check out my blog too, subscribe to Lizzie via bloglovin and GFC, and I hope to see you over at ablushingblonde!

  1. I've been told my lips are the "best part of my face" haha (Don't know if this is a compliment or not" but I'll definitely be ttrying this out to amplify my assets ;)
