Ok, I purchased some "long lasting" lipstick. It is supposed to stay on through meals and everything else. Now, it has been needed to reapply after eating at times. Is it because I am wearing gloss with it, or what? Is long lasting really long lasting? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Gloss definitely contributes to making lipstick less long wearing. For maximum longevity, use some type of primer or base (I use elf studio lip lock pencil). Line your lips and fill them in. Put on your lipstick. Take a tissue and split it so you have just one ply. Hold it over your looks and use a brush to dust translucent loose powder over your lips and tissue. It will set and matify your lipstick without changing the color or looking like you've used powder.
