Hacks to stop matte lipstick from cracking on your lips

Matte lipsticks are a popular choice among women because of their long-lasting wear. However, matte lipsticks can be prone to cracking, especially in cold weather or applied over dry lips. Here are some tips to help keep your matte lipstick from cracking:

  1. Use a lip liner to line your lips and prevent the lipstick from bleeding outside of your lips.
  2. Apply a thin layer of lip balm or gloss over your lips before applying the matte lipstick. This will help to moisturize your lips and make the lipstick less likely to crack.
  3. Avoid licking your lips while wearing matte lipstick, as this will cause the lipstick to fade and become less pigmented.
  4. Avoid applying matte lipstick over dry lips. Instead, exfoliate your lips with a lip scrub to remove dead skin and moisturize with a balm or gloss before you apply the lipstick.
  5. Keep matte lipsticks in a cool, dark place such as a refrigerator. This will help to prevent them from becoming dried out and cracking.
