Let’s get real, dark lipstick is our guilty pleasure. We love wearing it on a day we’re feeling daring or at night when we want to bask in a little makeup attention. Often, dark lipsticks – especially liquid lip formulas – leave behind a stain, or are difficult to get off without scrubbing.

Hack #1 Vaseline slides it away

This multi-purpose Holy-Grail beauty product can do more than just moisturise, it can also come in handy when you’re dying to peel back layers of lipstick. Apply a dime size amount of Vaseline to your lips and leave it on for a few minutes, five at most. Once the time is up, grab a damp towel and wipe your lips clean to reveal a soft and fresh pout.

Hack# 2 Olive Oil to the rescue

If you’re in a pinch and find yourself without any makeup remover, go through your kitchen and improvise with olive oil. Drizzle some olive oil (or baby oil, either one works just fine) over a cotton round and dab it over your lips. Prepare to see some magic right before your eyes. Not only is it super cheap, but it’s seriously effective – a win-win for sure.

Hack# 3 Brown sugar and honey

For an impromptu exfoliator, mix equal parts of brown sugar and honey in a small dish and rub the mixture over your lips for 30 seconds. Wipe off the excess with a damp washcloth and apply a hydrating lip balm right after to retain moisture.
