Do you love wearing lipstick but hate leaving lipstick stains on cups whenever you take a sip? I know I do. It always takes away from the elegance of my lipstick-wearing experience when I see red smears on my takeaway Starbucks cup. But be afraid of the stains no more!
The ever elegant and stylish Lauren Santo Domingo, a Vogue U.S. contributing editor and co-founder of the website Moda Operandi, shared an awesome little trick with one of my favorite blogs Into The Gloss.
“…someone taught me a really good trick, where you go like this [licks the rim of her glass and then sips] which is kind of gross—and you have to be really discreet—but it really works like a charm to keep lipstick from sticking to your glass.
Now you all know I wouldn’t pass along a little trick like this unless I tried it myself (not even a trick from the likes of LSD). So, the other day I put on some of my favorite Lorac It Girl lipstick and headed out to get coffee with a friend. A guy friend. (It goes without saying that it’s infinitely more horrifying to leave stains on your cup when you’re with a guy than a girl) I picked up my cup and right before I took a sip, discreetly and quickly licked the rim before placing my lips on it. One glorious taste of Americano later my cup was It Girl stain-free. How heavenly.
