Goof off works. Its in a small metal container and works in removing fresh paint as well, so be careful since a little goes a long ways.

You should try to work on the lipstick stain as quickly as possible for the best results.
Before doing anything, check the label of the affected garment. This will help you determine the fabric. However, if the lipstick stain is noticed once you get home, start by creating a plan of attack. Keep in mind that lipstick is an oil-based cosmetic. Therefore, you want to use remedies that will combat the grease. First, we recommend you always use a pre-wash, which will definitely help.

Start with mild kinds of alcohol, which work well. Do not rub, or you'll spread the mark. Take a clean, white cloth and moisten it with alcohol. Then, blot the lipstick stain. Another home remedy is dish washing detergent. Such as Sunlight and Dawn, both formulated to fight grease. For this method of lipstick stain removal, dab on a little detergent, let it set for about 10 minutes, and then gently begin working on the stain from the outside edges towards the inside.

Another great home remedy for removing lipstick stains is ammonia. Most of us have ammonia at home for cleaning and if not, it can be found at any grocery store for just a few dollars. Start by blotting off as much of the stain as you can, preferably use plain water. After doing this use a cotton swab moistened with ammonia to dab at the stain. Once the stain begins to fade, wash the cloth by hand in warm soapy water.
