Advent Calendar

Easy Ways To Make Your Lipstick Last Longer

Lipstick Lip Finish

We hope you’ve been loving all your GLOSSYBOX ‘Advent Calendar’ treats. We’ve already brought you a smooth lip primer to prep your lips and a bold velvet lip glide for a pop of colour, but now we’re finishing off your lipcare essentials with a glossy product from Bellapierre Cosmetics.

Kiss Proof Lip Finish

Natural and cruelty-free, the Bellapierre Kiss Proof Lip Finish is a hydrating clear lip gloss that accentuates your lipstick’s shade. It also makes the colour non-transferable and creates a long-lasting glossy look.

How To Apply Tips: For best results, start by exfoliating and priming your lips. When you’ve got a smooth base to work off, apply your chosen lipstick and let it dry. You can then add a coat of Kiss Proof Lip Finish for extra shine and a lip look that stays put.

Tried And Tested

I decided to put the Kiss Proof Lip Finish to the test. From matte and satin lipsticks to lip glosses and lip glides, I’ve trialled them all for you.

I applied each lip colour as I usually would, then waited one minute before adding a coat of Lip Finish. I then waited another minute for that to set before testing whether or not the colour would transfer to a new surface (yes, I spent an hour making out with a piece of paper).

  • Liquid Lipstick

I tried it with the NARS Immoral Lip Glide some of you will have received, and was amazed with the results! Even though I only waited one minute, hardly any coloured transferred from my lips to the surface. I mean, can you even see it?


  • Lip Gloss

The lip gloss – Lip Finish combo was the second most successful pairing! You can only see the faintest outline of the crease where the lip colour naturally stays on longest.


  • Semi-Matte Lipstick

Out of all the lipsticks, the Lip Finish worked best with a semi-matte with quasi no colour transferring.


  • Satin Lipstick

Highly creamy and rich, this lipstick naturally takes longer to set and I was fully expecting it to transfer, even with the Lip Finish – but I was wrong! Compared to how much a satin lipstick usually transfers, very little colour left my lips.


  • Matte Lipstick

This was the lipstick with the least successful results – but it’s still hardly noticeable! If you want to use the lip finish to make your matte lipstick non-transferable, I would suggest letting it set a few extra minutes before drinking, eating or smooching.


Result Round Up:

  • The Lip Finish stops your colour from transferring, even after only 60 seconds setting time.
  • It works best with lip glosses
  • Leave it to set a bit longer when applying it over a lipstick

So Glossies, the Kiss Proof Lip Finish really does work with any lipstick. Unless you plan on applying your lipstick and immediately kissing, this fabulous product will make your colour non-transferrable and help it last even longer.
