There’s a reason why I have been avoiding doing lip swatches for a while; because it is such a pain to put lipstick on and take it back off again! I certainly found that it hurt my lips a lot, and they started to hurt and flake after a while.
Also I hate how long lasting lipsticks dry and stick to my lips sometimes! Terrible! Then I spotted this teeny product on Adambeauty. It’s called Kanebo Lip Fresh and is supposed to help cleanse the lips.
Think it’s a fab idea! I don’t like using regular cleanser on my lips, it doesn’t taste nice for one thing, and the texture feels a bit wrong sometimes!
Lip Fresh is just a clear, scentless liquid. It doesn’t taste bad – it doesn’t taste of anything so that is a bonus.
When I did my last lip swatches I put this Kanebo Lip Fresh to the test and it really worked!
Here is an example – Red pigmented lipstick! A nightmare to take off:
I put a small amount of the Lip Fresh on a tissue, held it over my bottom lip for about 10 seconds then pulled it away. The point of this product, to me, is so that I don’t have to tug and scrub at my lips.
Looks a bit wrong!
Here is how it looks after quickly removing some of the lip colour. It did a great job; no dryness, no flaking and also very little effort required:
