Could I wear petroleum jelly over my lipstick as a substitute for clear lip gloss?

Hi! I was just wondering if petroleum jelly would be a good substitute for a lip gloss over my lipstick. I’m kind of strapped for cash, and petroleum jelly is cheaper than lip gloss. Would petroleum jelly wear off the lipstick or anything? Thanks! :)

    You sure can 😉 I use it all the time, makes matte lipsticks more glossy. It generally doesn’t last as long as gloss, so you may need to reapply it more frequently. It also doesn’t smell or taste amazing (not bad, just not sweet like most glosses do) but thats not really a big deal.

    I don’t think it would taste good.
    it would probably look weird too… its kind of clumpy ?

    Yup, for sure! I do that sometimes! Lip stick is the colour and the jelly makes your lips shine!
