Are you someone who is constantly on the hunt for a lipstick formula that stays put for HOURS?? If so, you’re gonna want to hear about this mega long-wear lipstick.
Honestly, I don’t mind reapplying my lip color however. The act of swiping a fresh coat over my lips every now and then is kind of calming for me. I know, weird, but true.
But, I know that the biggest complaint from other women (that aren’t weird makeup artists like me and dislike spending hours applying makeup!) is that they want to find a great long wear lipstick they can apply, and not think about again. I think I finally have the answer for them/you…
Want to hear the best part? It’s a drugstore one.
Yep, you don’t even need to fork over a bunch of money to get one that keeps your lips colorful through lunch, snacks, and happy hour!! Believe me, I’ve done all 3 wearing this formula and it STAYS PUT. Also, I’ve tried countless “longwear” lip formulas and none have impressed me a ton. Until now…
I found out about NYX Shine Loud Liquid Lipstick, $12.00, after watching a testimonial video on YouTube where the girl literally chose a bold red color and it did not budge all.day.long!! Of course, I went straight to Ulta the next day and grabbed one to see if it seriously had THAT kind of staying power.
I chose the shade “Magic Maker” which is a very wearable nude-ish mauve shade that I can wear with any outfit. Here’s the specs on this formula per the NYX website…
* 24 shade options * 16 hour wear * 2 step process – paint then gloss * lightweight and comfy on the lips * vegan formula * non-sticky shine finish
The greatest thing about this lip color, is that for a longwear formula, it’s SO comfortable once it dries down – not patchy or dry feeling. And the gloss keeps it really shiny that you can reapply throughout the day if you wish, but never disturbs the color.
The KEY to longest wear is to apply the shade part first (in one or two thin layers) let it dry down completely, then I use my clean dry finger to press it into my lips, then apply a coat of gloss. Voila, it doesn’t budge!!!!!
I shared my experience with this relatively new lip color over on my Instagram reels if you’d like to see it in action!
Have you tried this crazy good long-wear lipstick yet?
