Seven Unbelievably Long-Wearing Lip Colours

Here are the seven most unbelievably long-wearing lip colours that stay put all day. I seriously reckon every girl/guy should own at least one of these brands. Read on for my top picks.

1. MAC Pro Longwear Lipcreme
The creamy formula of this product feels so good and moisturising on the lips and has a slight sheen that looks fabulous. My fave is shown below in Overtime, which is a beautiful soft pinky-mauve. To help the colour to stay put all day, I coat my lips with this lipcreme, then blot them with a tissue to lift any excess moisture but maintain the colour. Then I add another coat.

2. Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick
This is the Energizer Bunny of lip colours, with a heavily-pigmented formula (shown below in Beso) that outlasts meetings, lunch, coffee breaks and dinner with the girls. This will literally last all day and all night. To take off this long-wearing little miracle worker, I dab on some vaseline, let it sit for a few minutes to break down the formula and then easily wipe it off.

3. Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture A Levres Glossy Stain
With the pigment of a lipstick and the shine of a gloss, this award-winning product is completely awesome, especially in the shade 17 Fuchsia (shown below). Once this super-stunning glossy stain is applied to the lips, the water evaporates, letting all the colour and oils sink in and prevent fading for up to six hours. These YSL glossy stains also contain silicone that gives the lips a stunning reflective finish all day long.

4. Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain + Balm
This double-ended pen is incredibly easy to apply, and you only have to do so once a day. Just apply the marker (shown here in Gothic) over the lips for a light but long-wearing coverage, then top with the moisturising balm. Love.

5. Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait De Gloss Pure Shine Intense Colour Long Wear Lip Gloss
Glosses are usually known for their shine, not staying power. But this super-duper-stunner has both. It's glassy yet highly-pigmented, and I'm a hug fan of Imaginaire (shown below). To ensure that this high-shine lip gloss has staying power, I use a lip scrub beforehand, using Fresh Sugar Lip Polish (to get rid of any flakes), go over with a lip balm, blot with a tissue, then paint the lips with this divine Chanel product.

6. Lancome La Laque Fever Lip Gloss Ultimate Lasting Full Colour Lipshine
A lip gloss that contains silicone will always have lots of long-lasting staying power, and these Lancome lip glosses are silicone-based that form a barrier on the lips and lock in the pigment. This lip product is crazy-concentrated with so much colour (shown here in Plum Savvy) that only one application is needed for all-day staying power.

7. Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil
Pigment-rich lip products that contain pinks and reds last the longest. These Nars creamy smooth matte lip pencils (shown below in Damned) provide an insane amount of budge-proof colour. And they are ridiculously long-lasting. But be careful about applying too much gloss or balm on top. The more moisture you layer over a highly-pigmented product, the more it breaks down the colour and starts to fade or smear.

Have a gorgeous week.
Love, Elle xo
