My lips have discolored due to constant picking and they look very ugly. can the color be restored


I would recommend using Burts Bee's chapstick. It's one of the only chapsticks that does not have an ingredient that will INCREASE chapped lips. Upon applying, it's not the most moist of the lip balms, but you will notice a difference over a couple of days. Try the different kinds, and find which one is for you. As for the discoloration, for a quick fix, you can use a lipstain (close to your natural color). I like using NYC's lipstain because it's cheaper, AND stays on just as long. Another tip, try applying a good amount of chapstick and take a dry toothbrush and rub the excess skin/dryness away that way. It will enhance your lip color and scrub away the dry mess. Afterwards, reapply the chapstick.
Hope this helps!

Why does some lipstick stay on better when sipping out of a glass than others?


Ever since the idea of tinting the lips as a cosmetic enhancement came into fashion (a practice which has been fashionable for over 6,000 years) women have been looking for ways to make the effects last longer. The use of berries and fruits to stain the lips gave way to cosmetic preparations using wax and whale blubber, and even more complex chemical preparations. Each of these has been intended to make the lip color last longer.
The basic formulas of today's lipsticks are the same. Emollient ingredients are combined with a waxy base and dyes to provide tint to the lips. In most cases, the lipstick sits on the surface of the lips and is gradually rubbed off by the friction against glassware, eating utensils or kissing and other actions.
Depending on the ratio of the ingredients we can find lipsticks that resist wear and last longer, this either comes as a result of ingredients that act as sealants on the lips, or else act as stains and literally dye the lips a darker color to create a lasting effect.
Today, we see newer and exciting formulas promising 8, 10 and 12-hour wear from lipstick applications. We have promises of lipsticks that won't rub off, and won't lose their shine. These lip colors can vary widely in prices, and the results may not be to your liking. If this is the case, here are some simple tips to make your lip color last longer, whatever the brand:
• Use a base coat of foundation makeup on your lips before applying your lip color. This not only helps you to get a clearer, more vivid color result from the lipstick, but in cases where you won't have to eat or drink, can result in longer lasting color.
• In situations where you know you will be eating and drinking (such as a dinner date or cocktail party) apply your lipstick and blot it, then use a clear lip gloss or petroleum jelly as a topcoat in order to act as a buffer between your lip color and the surface of the glassware or tableware.
• After applying your lip color, use a translucent face powder on your lips to set the product. This will create a matte finish to the lips, so it will counteract the effect of "glossy" lip color, but it will help your lip color to last through a lot of wear
