Let me tell you, the day I discovered long wear lip products was the day my life was changed. I am one of those people who just look and feel 100x better with a little bit of lip color. I have a fairly pale complexion so just a little bit of color really does go a long way. Sadly, most of the products I have tried in the past wore off during the day and I just don’t have time for touch ups every two hours.
Today I am sharing a few of my favorite long wear lip products both from department store and drugstore brands. I use all of these products regularly and have been impressed by their results.
This is the newest Maybelline lip product right now. I was lucky to have two colors sent to me to test out and let me tell you, I LOVE it. I was unsure at first as it goes on a little sticky, but it dries within a minute and really does last all day. My favorite is Lover. I put this on at 8pm one night and forgot to wash it off when I went to bed. It was still on the next morning at 11am. Amazing. FYI you will want to use a stronger makeup remover to take this off. I suggest this to remove it. Oh, and I love that this is on Amazon Prime.
I love Kat Von D products for their longwear ability. Her foundation is one of my favorites and this lip product has been added to my list.
I was recently sent a bottle of this lip product and was super confused when I opened the package. The whole thing is only like two inches tall. They call this a shaker product so instead of the traditional long tube with a wand you have a bottle that you shake and then the applicator is in the lid. You can then use this tip first to line the lips and then fill in with color. The dry time on this one is a little longer but it is worth it. I am loving this in pink.
This was the first long wear lip product I had ever used. I purchased it at CVS but was unaware of its power until I tried it out. After using it I was in love. I had always been the person who was either reapplying lipstick all day or with colorless lips after 10am. (It was usually the latter.) This product is actually a two step system. The liquid color is applied and then after it dries there is a clear gloss cover to lock it in and add moisture. I got tons of compliments and told anyone who asked about it how awesome it was.
