When makeup transfer makes your phone act like it’s possessed
I know a lot of people stopped wearing makeup during the pandemic, but the only thing I gave up was lipstick. Call me vain, but I even got up way early on the mornings of my c-sections to put my face one.
How ever, I couldn’t figure out how to keep my makeup from transferring to my phone screen when I was on a call. I tried just about every primer and setting spray known to man…well, woman. I even tried “baking” and other time consuming rituals that don’t make a lick of sense for my stay-at-home self.
Nothing worked. My foundation still ended up on my phone screen, and it started acting a few sugars shy of a sweet tea. Skipping ahead in the middle of a song, opening apps I didn’t tell it to, etc. And the weirdest thing is that it would randomly call my sister — and then my brother. Not that I don’t love talking to them, but the cute little sequence it came up with was more than a little creepy.
So then I thought I’d look at screen protector. I found one that claimed to be “oil dispensing” and thought I’d giving it a try. It.Is.Life-Changing!
I don’t know how it does it, but it doesn’t come away caked with makeup after a call. There may be a smudge or two, but it’s not wearing half my face. It also seems more responsive and easier to navigate. I wish I had tried this before spending so much money on setting sprays!

There are also different versions for gamers, for people who don’t want the people around them to see what’s on their screen, etc. So if you decide to try one of these, make sure you get the one that’s right for your phone and for your personal needs.
