A Long Wearing Lipstick/Lipstain Review from Amy
Posted 27 May 2008 - 01:11 PM
I was on the hunt for a pretty pink color that would look like a gloss, but stay on for many many smooches on the wedding day. Here is what I tried, liked, and didnâ€™t like: I hope it helps!
1) CoverGirl Outlast in â€œBerries and Creamâ€:
Outlast Double LipShine :: CoverGirl
This is what Iâ€™ll be wearing. I applied it, let it dry, then filled in a bit of the color with some extra Covergirl lipstick (their classic longwear in Iceblue pink), then finished with the gloss on top. I ate lunch, went to the gym, went for a long walk outside in the sun....sweatedâ€¦.ate dinner, washed my face, and still woke up with pink lips. This definitely had the best wear of them allâ€¦.and the cheapestâ€¦go figure!
2) Estee Lauder Double Wear in â€œLock in Pinkâ€:
Est©e Lauder - Official Site: Double Wear Stay-in-Place Lip Duo
I bought this from Macys this past weekend as well and tried it the next day after the Covergirl. It did stay on pretty good, but not really in the middle of my lips. It was mostly around the outer lip. I liked the top gloss better, but my lips felt much more dry and sticky than the others. Not very comfortable, but it would be my 2nd choice if I had to choose one.
3) Vincent Longo lip stain/shimmer in â€œBellini Loveâ€:
Sephora: Vincent Longo Pearlessence Gel Stains: Lip Stain
This is what the makeup artist at Sephora had me buy. I liked it when I wore it home from Sephora, but it wasnâ€™t enough color for me. It was the right shade of pink and very pretty and sparkly, but didnâ€™t come with a top coat (he suggested I buy the MAC one) and I thought for 25.00 it was kind of a rip. It would have worked, but I returned it.
Loreal Infallable in â€œAzaleaâ€:
(The one in the little silver case)
Iâ€™ve had this one for a while and wear it sometimes to work, but it always ends of making my lips flaky and I regret it everytime I put it on. It is very drying, even with the topcoat. A few of my girlfriends love it, but I donâ€™t think it would work great for the wedding dayâ€¦.it always ends up flaking off.
Victoria Secret â€œTempt my lipsâ€ Stain:
Victoria's Secret - Lip Stain
If I was going for a red hue I would go for this one. I use it during the work week as kind of a color base, then apply lip gloss on top. It gives you a kool aid kind of stain and lasts at least until lunch time for me. It doesnâ€™t dry my lips out at all. Warning: it is very red so you canâ€™t mess it up and get it anywhere else! The one from the link is different than the one I have, but I think it is the same idea. I got mine on clearance a while back.
Let me know if you have any other quesitons for me....I've spent a small fortune trying to get the right makeup for the BIG day!
