Total Beauty put out this interesting article on long wearing lipsticks. I tend to dislike most of the stain/gloss combos that claim to be long wearing (MAC’s version is the big exception—I love theirs). But I do like some of the more standard lipsticks that wear well, such as Dior. In reality, my best wear often comes from a combo of Cat Cosmetics lip liner and Dior or Laura Geller lipstick with a bit of gloss on top. It won’t last for hours, but it will wear fairly well, and it won’t look awful as it starts to wear off like the stain/gloss long wear combos do!
I recently reviewed Max Factor Vivid Impact Lipstick (read review). With high pigment, it makes for a great vibrant lip color. Now you can take this quiz at Total Beauty to find out which shade is best for you.
I have found very few long wearing products that I can put up with. However, I love MAC Lustre Twins and Dior makes some standard lipsticks that last incredibly well.
For a deeper look at some long wearing products, also take a look at my review of Revlon, CoverGirl, Maybelline, and Milani long wearing products on Beauty on Fashion Tech.
Below is an article syndicated from Total Beauty on the matter that looks at some of the products that I have previously reviewed and more.
