I have always used eyeshadow primer but had no idea that a base for lip gloss and lipstick existed as well–until I tried the fabulous Kiss Kiss Liplift from Guerlain.
Liplift evens out the grooves on the surface of your lips, allowing you to achieve a very smooth application of color afterward. For this exact reason, I always used to prep my lips with balm before putting on lip gloss. But now that I’ve tried Liplift, I think I’ll take five from my chapstick.
Two more noteworthy benefits of this product. First, it does not dry out your lips. Second, it helps your color last longer, which is a sign of a good priming product.
The “lift” part of the product’s name suggests that it also plumps your pucker. I can’t say that it dramatically plumped my lips, but I did notice a small difference. What sold me on Liplift is how much it improves the appearance of your gloss or lip stick. For that reason alone, I say this Guerlain goodie is a must-have.
Let me know if you have any other tips for making your lip gloss or lipstick stay on longer!
