Pigmented lip ladies, like myself, have a hard time getting some lipsticks to appear true to color. This is because certain shades cannot neutralize or cover the pigment in our lips.
My before photo is when I swiped on the lip color and I got what looks like just a but of shine but hardly any color. After the method below, the color is true to the stick color:
1. Apply your foundation all over your lips. This will neutralize you lip pigment.
2. Yes, you will look like the maniquin from the opening credits to Nip Tuck but you have to let that foundation dry!
3. Add your lip color. It should now appear the same as the tube color.
