What to Do If Your Lipstick Changes Color

Is Your Lipstick Changing Color? Read This.

Fall is the time to try out bold, dark, and deep lip tones, but sometimes the pH levels in your skin and simple oxidation can cause that fantastic bold berry hue to transform into a strange shade of orange by noon. But by using a contrasting shade to correct these unwanted changes, you can keep your lip color from turning into a pumpkin —  unless of course, you are going for a lovely russet hue, which is a beautiful choice, too. Check out my color-correcting tips when you read more.

  • Opposites attract: If you've found that your lipstick has changed over the course of the day or evening, neutralize the unwanted tone with an opposite color. For example, orange will help cancel out pink, and pink helps to cancel out orange.
  • Draw in the lines: Before applying your chosen shade of lipstick, simply line your lips with a contrasting color. Try to keep the liner around the same intensity as your natural lip hue and blot with a tissue or your fingers as to not overwhelm the look.
  • Glossy gal: For something different, why not pair that berry lipstick with a golden gloss, or a clear gloss with a touch of glittery warm-toned sparkle? This is particularly great for the upcoming holiday season.

Ugh, I have yet to find a lip color that doesn't change color on me! My pale rose turns bright coral, my purplish plum turns hot pink, my cool deep red turns orange brick! It's so, so frustrating. I've found that layering the lipstick over a good balm helps the original color last longer, but I still have to remove & reapply after a couple of hours.
