If you are a regular lipstick user, you are recommended to use chapsticks as well as lip balms. There are a lot of brands of lipsticks that have a drying formula. If your lips are dry and not well moisturized, even a good lip gloss or lipstick will look bad on your lips. Apply a layer of lip balm before you apply your lipstick. Remember to cover your lips with balm after you remove your makeup. Let the balm penetrate and nourish your lips. Use different balms that have hydrating and nourishing components, vitamins and oils.
