Dealing with sensitive lips and best lipsticks for sensitive lips

Having a sensitive skin is kind of a nightmare for a makeup lover. But after trying many things and listening to my dermatologist, I have found a few things including lipsticks for sensitive lips (Lipstick line with many shades) that worked for me and I will share all that with you.

My Lip Sensitivity Issue:

I happen to have very sensitive lips. I get skin inflammation on lips a lot and whenever this happens:

  1. My lips turn really dark (that I can’t go out without covering them with a lipstick)
  2. Any lip product (especially the products with fragrance) burns on my lips and makes the inflammation even worse. In those days even toothpaste burns my lips.
  3. All the foods that have even little spices burn my lips.
  4. My lips itch real bad. (YUKH)

How do I deal with it?

  • Whenever I get the issue, I apply a lip cream at night that is prescribed by my dermatologist.
  • I was prescribed SPF 50 sunscreen for lips by the dermatologist that I have started using on daily basis now and it is keeping my problem down.
  • The long-lasting liquid lipsticks don’t let the skin breathe and they bring my inflammation back so I no longer use them.
  • I have minimized the use of metallic lipsticks because of they consist of some types of metals for the shine. And according to my dermatologist, those metals can irritate skin if used on regular basis.
  • I no longer user any lip products with fragrance.

How do I cover my lips during the inflammation:

I have tried so many lipsticks and lip liners during the inflammation, that all gave me the burning feeling except this one lipstick line that now has become my everyday and the most favorite one, that is the Gosh Velvet Touch Matt Lipsticks.

Gosh Velvet Touch Matt Lipsticks:

Gosh Velvet Touch Matt Lipsticks are available in a variety of colors. My absolute favorite and everyday color is the ‘003 Matt Antique’. It is a nude color with a brownish pink undertone. It has a matt finish with a creamy velvety feel and it is long lasting.

So far Gosh Velvet Touch Matt Lipsticks are the only type of lipsticks that didn’t burn on my lips. I tried to find out the ingredients used in it but didn’t find any source except the description on amazon which says that these lipsticks have Vitamin E. If I find more information on these lipsticks, I will surely share that. And if I find any more lipsticks that work for me, I will share that too.

Please let me know if you know in the comments about any brand, promising to make lipsticks for sensitive lips or any lipstick that worked for you if you have sensitive lips.
