I should be grateful for tips in preventing lipstick bleed and how to stop it wearing off before I get out of the car!

Do all your kissing before applying the lipstick?

Sorry, that's not helpful, I don't have any solutions. Perhaps avoid dark lipsticks so it's not so obvious?

Try a lip liner - I get ones which are like a soft pencil - seems to work.

Either a lip liner or use a brush to apply the lipstick, starting by outlining the lips then filling in. That's what I do.

Draw around your lips with a lip pencil. Fill in with lipstick using a brush. Blott on a tissue and then reapply more lipstick with the brush.

I have a colourless lip liner and find it really does a great job - I use it every day.

Just curious as I don’t wear makeup. What’s lipstick bleed?

I use the Lip Line Fixer from the Body Shop, I've had it while so don't know if its still available, works well for me.
