Temptalia’s Tips

  1. Try using a more opaque lipgloss (in a similar color) to help even out a sheer lipstick.
  2. Use a sheer but pearly gloss to add sparkle, glossiness, and an illusion of fuller lips over a more opaque, matte lipstick.
  3. When applying the gloss, wipe the applicator either on a lip brush, disposable lip wand, sponge tip applicator, etc. and then apply using the outside applicator (whatever you choose!).  Otherwise, you’ll be getting your favorite lipstick into your favorite lipgloss!  It’s not as big of a deal with lighter lipsticks, but with reds and the like, it can tint the lipgloss base!
