Between the hairlessness, the constantly horny pizza delivery guys, and the white leather couches (why are they often white?), porn has provided us with lots of unrealistic expectations when it comes to what sex really looks like. But one untruth we just can’t overcome is when an adult film actress performs oral sex for an extended period of time, then when she’s accomplished, she seems with the lipstick of her not slightly faded or perhaps smudged. It’s a cliche that including the performers themselves call bullshit on.


“Everything I’ve experimented with in my life literally never remains on,” Sinn Sage, an adult movie performer, informs Refinery29. “When there’s a’ smudge proof,’ semi permanent style of lipstick, it gets dry the lips of mine as badly, which is conducive or good not to a nice oral experience.”

But while some stars will still be looking for a lipstick that really stays on, others have it down to a science. Take Maxine Holloway, an adult digital movie performer which hasn’t only discovered a lipstick that doesn’t budge, but has also think of her own multi-step routine. “There are a few things you are able to do when applying that can help keep pout put all night and prevent makeout induced clown mouth,” Holloway says. “Try to exfoliate and moisturize your lips prior to application, so you have a good smooth fabric to paint on. If videofootjobs.com know I’ll be getting some form of oral escapade, I apply my lipstick in thin layers – making it possible for each covering to stain and dry out before the next.”

Actually, there are a couple of long-wear lipsticks that adult-film actresses turn to over and over for their amazing staying power. From a $37 Chanel lip gloss to a $9 Maybelline liquid lipstick, check out a couple of these porn stars’ favorites, forward.
