Here’s Why It Might Not Be The Ideal Choice For Your Lipstick Application Routine

1. Slippery Slope For Lip Liner

Lip liner plays a crucial role in defining the shape of your lips and preventing lipstick from feathering or smudging. When you apply coconut oil as a base, your lips become slippery and may not provide the grip needed for precise lip liner application. This means you might end up with uneven lines or struggle to maintain a sharp lip outline.

2. Limited Color Payoff

One of the primary purposes of using lip liners is to enhance the colour payoff of your lipstick. When you apply coconut oil beforehand, it can dilute the pigment of the lipstick and lip liner, resulting in a less vibrant and less long-lasting colour. You may find yourself having to reapply your lipstick more frequently throughout the day to maintain that bold look.

3. Potential Feathering And Bleeding

Coconut oil, while hydrating, can also make your lipstick prone to feathering and bleeding outside your lip lines. This is particularly troublesome if you’re wearing bold or dark shades, as any smudging can be highly noticeable.

4. Not Suitable For Matte Lipsticks

If you’re a fan of matte lipsticks, this hack might not be for you at all. Matte lipsticks rely on a dry base to achieve their characteristic finish. Applying coconut oil can contradict this, leaving you with a shiny or satin-like texture instead of the desired matte look.

5. Not Ideal for Long-Wear

If you’re looking for a lipstick that will stay put throughout the day, coconut oil may not be your best friend. The oil can break down the lipstick formula faster, causing it to fade or transfer more easily, especially when eating or drinking.

So, while Sonam Kapoor’s coconut oil trick might leave you with a glossy pout for a brief moment, it might not be the best choice for those seeking long-lasting, precise, and intense lip colour.
