How to Take Off a Lip Stain That Lasts 16 Hours

By Kimberly Caines

Lipstick is available in many varieties, ranging from matte and creamy to shiny and long-lasting. With the demands of every-day life, the last thing you want to worry about is your fading lipstick color. Constantly reapplying your lipstick is not necessary if you use a long-lasting lipstick. They are kiss, food and workout proof and can last up to 16 hours. If done incorrectly, removing long-lasting lip stain can leave your lips dry and chapped. Before applying a long-lasting lipstick shade, know how to remove it.

Keep lips looking healthy by removing lipstick the proper way.

Step 1

Place the petroleum jelly onto a paper tissue.

Step 2

Apply the petroleum jelly to your lipstick-stained lips. Rub the petroleum jelly into your lips with the paper tissue. Use a gentle, small circular motion. Avoid harshly scrubbing the lips because this can cause them to chap. Keep rubbing until all of the lip color has been removed from your lips.

Step 3

Apply lip balm to your lips to keep them moisturized and soft.
