      What creates the lubricity of grease is just oil. It's just oil mixed with a thickener. The thickener will absorb the underlying oil, eventually.

      Although, if the oil coat is really thick, yes, the grease will slide off.

      If you apply the grease where it is supposed to go then work the action a few times to spread the grease around, you'll be okay. (Then you can wipe off the excess grease and not have a dirt magnet, that will eventually become a grinding compound.)
      Thanks... good point. The underlying assumption always has to be the oil and grease are compatible.Even better if the grease is the exact same oil with thickener.

      I don't remember where I learned the trick, but I have been using small brushes to apply grease for years. I seldom have any excess to wipe up.

      Depending on what kind and how many you buy, "acid" brushes run from 10¢ to 30¢ each, and last a long time.
