Finding the Perfect Longlast Lipstick

I just adore my red lipsticks, a quick slick gives instant glamour but the hubby refuses to kiss me when I'm wearing my red lippy for fear of ending up looking like Coco the Clown so I have been on a quest to find the perfect long last lipstick. First I tried L'oreal Glamshine 6 hours in Timeless Ruby, a gorgeous ruby red with a red glittery shimmer. I simply adore the colour but application is not easy with the teardrop shaped wand and once applied it has a disgusting sticky feeling to it. As for lasting 6 hours well it barely lasts 6 minutes and the hubby absolutely refuses to kiss me if I wear this one so it doesn't solve my little conundrum.Secondly I tried Max Factors Lipfinity which had much better staying power but seemed to flake off after a while.
Next I tried Revlon's Just Bitten in Frenzy after seeing it on Super Kawaii Mama's blog which seemed to last through a cup of tea and a greasy pizza and is a nice texture. Being an applicator pen it is to apply get a clean edge. More importantly the hubby will kiss me when I wear this one!


  1. I have the same problem,love my red lips.....and puple and fuschia etc. but the Scotsman is too scared to kiss me when I have my glam on! Revlon Colorstay Ultimate is wonderful,goes on like a gloss,then goes matt and stays te entire day!!!! x

  2. Try Maybelline Superstay 24 lip colour it's brilliant. Paint on the colour leave to dry for a min or so, then put on the shine. Really doesn't smudge and does stay put all day.
    Here is a link for all the colours.
