Just wanted to know if any of you ladies out there have the problem of getting lipstick on your dentures. I put lipstick on and the next thing I know my husband says , "You have lipstick on you teeth". I am always going around looking for a mirror to see if I have lipstick on my dentures. I work customer service and I sure don't want lipstick on my teeth. Can anyone help???

Yes, I have had this problem (especially when I first got my upper denture). There are a few things you can try: (1) use a slightly thicker, less glossy, lipstick (and, in this regard, I have given up lip gloss); (2) after applying lipstick, put your finger in your closed lips (this seems to take the lipstick off the inner part of the lip that comes into contact with the denture); or (3) put a very thin layer of vaseline on your front teeth (this makes the lipstick not stick to the denture). Most times I can get away with just doing (1) above or blotting the inside of my lips. I read about (2) and (3) online -- apparently, beauty contestants use (2) and (3) to make sure they don't get lipstick on their teeth. So, you see, this problem is not unique to denture wearers.
I hope this helps.
