Long Wearing Lipstick and Gloss...Is It Really Possible??

I think I could say with all confidence, that the one thing women would reeeaally like to get out of their makeup, would be a lipstick or lipgloss that you don't have to constantly reapply every 15 minutes. Am I right??

Big makeup manufacturers like Revlon, Maybelline, and MAC are finally catching on that they need to come up with a long wearing formula that doesn't look/or feel as dry as the Sahara desert. We lipstick lovers would like a happy medium to where our long-wearing lip color actually feels comfortably moisturizing like regular lipstick.

Well, I think two companies are on their way to finding the perfect balance in a long-wearing lip color:

Revlon ColorStay Lipcolor should be your first option for long-wear lipstick. It comes in 30 different shades, which is impressive compared to most long wear lipsticks which only offer a handful of choices. It is surprisingly soft when applied and doesn't need sandpaper for you to remove it.

L'Oreal Paris Infallible Never Fail Lipgloss is being hailed as the best of long-wearing lipgloss that doesn't require a second step topcoat like most do. Lipglosses are a big money maker for lots of cosmetic companies, and that's probably because we all reapply our beloved lipglosses every 10 minutes, therefore using them up quickly and having to buy another replacement!! Exhausting. So give this one a try- it comes in 16 different shades and shines like traditional glosses, so you can probably find one that suits you just right.

We're not asking for a miracle that our lips need to look like Scarlett Johansson's once our lipstick is applied....we just want the color to stay on through lunch!!

Transfer resistant lipstick tends to leave color for as long as eight hours whereas long wearing lipstick stays put for about four to six hours. But such lip colors tend to make the lips dry and usually come enriched with Vitamin E and Aloe Vera. Matte lipsticks are non-shiny and may also leave the lips very dry. Frosted lipstick shades lend an iridescent and shimmering look. Matte lip colors are longer lasting though they leave a drying effect. Glossy colors make lips appear fuller and work well with thin lips. Many women prefer matte and nude shades for workdays and leave the glossy and shimmering shades for the evening out.
