Hi, I am back at work and none of my daytime lipsticks seem to have any staying power, and I need some colour on my face at the moment as am seriously sleep deprived. Am after a neutral, pinky-nude style colour, but wondered if you ladies could recommend a brand/specific lipstick that you have found to last for at least a few hours so I dont come out of meetings looking dead. If it moisturises even better. TIA
Hi - I WOULD RECOMMEND BOBBY BROWN - ITS MOISTURISING - NOT A TRADITIONAL LONG STAY THAT YOU HAVE TO REMOVE WITH MAKE UP REMOVER - BUT I FIND ITS LASTS ALL AM.I USE ROSEBERRY AND I HAVE A SPRING TYPE COMPLEXION - PALE SKIN.I REALLY RECOMMEND THE STAFF AT BOBBY BROWN IF YOU CAN GET TO A COUNTER - THEY HAVE ALWAYS BEEN NON PUSHY AND REALLY SEEM TO KNOW STUFF...BAD EWS THO ITS £ 16 BUT LASTS A LONG LONG TIME A S THE QUALITY IS FAB..GOOD LUCK !!
My favourites at the moment are the Poppy King lipsticks for No7. I can never find proper nude shades for my lips, but have found that Confidence is a peachy nude and Intrigue a pinky nude that work perfectly for me. Lovely formula too - they go on quite sheer but still with a good amount of colour and stay on for ages without drying.
I really like Max Infinity, I don't find it drying if I wear the balm and reapply once or twice throughout the day. Another option is Maybeline long lasting one - can't recall the name - again very good.
So I bought a maybelline one today, put it on when I got home (to do the ironing, natch) and was impressed. It lasted a cup of lemsip and a tea and my dinner, and you can still see it on my lips! Going to get a couple more colours, 2 for £12 currently in Boots... thanks ladies!
