I’ve missed red lipstick. I change my hair so often that sometimes, it’s a struggle to find colors that compliment it well. Red wasn’t really working for me when I was rocking pastel pink locks but with blue hair? It is perfection. The thing about a red lip though is that it gets everywhere and may not last throughout the day. From my husband’s cheek to the rings on all my coffee mugs I feel like I leave more lipstick in my wake and sometimes it’s just not worth it. A few days ago I tried out a product from Know Cosmetics called No, My Lips Are Sealed. I went into it a bit hesitant and cynical. A topcoat that was going to make my lipstick totally smudge-proof and long-lasting? I’ve heard that before, right? “No, My Lips Are Sealed” Lipstick Topcoat is a transparent gel that helps your lipstick last longer with less fading & smudging, and ensures that fewer embarrassing stains are left behind! It’s really easy to apply. Grab your favorite lipstick, I went with a pretty bold red. Apply it how you normally would. Blot your lips lightly with a tissue. Then, shake the lipstick topcoat, and use the wand to apply a generous amount over your lips. Wait a few minutes, and test it out by kissing the back of your hand, you’re good to go when there’s no color transfer. This was about 4 minutes for me! Check out the video below for a quick how-to and see the magic for yourself!

Like I said, I was super skeptical. But this stuff works. I was amazed. It was magic and I couldn’t believe it, I definitely did a double take. I maybe kissed my hand like 15 times just to try to prove it wrong and there was no transfer ever.
The No, My Lips Are Sealed Lipstick Topcoat is never sticky and totally colorless itself, it does sort of change the finish of your lipstick a bit and makes it look more matte, but not to worry it actually hydrates your lips.
Know Cosmetics have a couple other products that will also compliment your makeup looks. For lips specifically, you can go with No Thin Lips: A smooth, colorless gloss that instantly gives lips a plumped, volumized appearance.
Followed by No Bleeding Lips: A clear lip liner that creates an invisible line around the lips. This will make it so your lipstick doesn’t bleed before you add on No, My Lips Are Sealed.
I tested No, My Lips Are Sealed for about 7 hours and my lipstick looked just as fab seven hours in as it did when I first applied. No transfer on my coffee mugs or water bottles. No lipstick to scrub off my husband’s cheek. Even through a late-night snack, it stayed put.
You can find No, My Lips Are Sealed lipstick topcoat from Know Cosmetics (sold at Sephora) for $25! A small price to pay for magical kiss-proof lips that last all day! I’ve maybe already ordered a backup because I liked it that much! You don’t need much gel at all, one tube will last awhile for sure. And the best part is, you can use it with any of your favorite lipsticks!
