Do lipstick and cream that women apply on their lips invalidate fasting?

The Details of the Question

I am a teacher. When I fast in Ramadan, my lips dry very much; it causes some trouble in the classroom. I sometimes have difficulty. Does applying lipstick or cream on the lips invalidate fasting? That is, applying something that will show them lively and that will hide their dryness.

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

It is definite that fasting is invalidated if the lipstick on the lips is swallowed. Lipstick, other paint and cream do not invalidate fasting if they are not swallowed.
