Try applying lip balm to your lips prior to applying but allowing about 15-20 mins for the balm to sink in. Blot off the excess balm then apply the product. Lip primer is a waste of money.
Exfoliate your lips first before applying Guerlain. And, I tend to use a lip brush for more precise application. A primer would prevent the long lasting effect because there'd be a barrier between Guerlain and your lips. And, if you have problems with feathering, apply less and use a lip brush, or you can use the cargo reverse lip liner which goes outside the line of your lips and will prevent feathering. If your lips are a little dry, make sure your hydrated, this tends to be the issue in dry climates. Guerlain doesn't dry out my lips and I'm in Phoenix.
I don't find these drying at all but I live in the South, so perhaps that i climate related. I would recommend Fresh sugar lip polish to exfoliate and wear a good hydrating lip balm every night. Another trick I use if my lips feel dry is appling a lightweight but very hydrating lip balm on at the beginning of my beauty routine (I use chanel in a pot) by the time I get the lips the are moist, prepped and ready for color!

In my experience a lip primer would be a bad idea. All the times that I've used one, it seems like it's prevented the color from really grabbing onto my lips.
