Testing long lasting lip colours

I love bright, bold lipsticks but I never remember to take the lipstick into work with me so rarely get chance to reapply. The lipsticks I use most are long lasting, then I don’t have to remember to carry it around with me. 

I decided to test a selection of long last line lip colour; some of these were free samples, some discounted and some have been purchased by me, so all reviews are unbiased. 

L’Oréal 24 HR infallible lip colour (red infallible) £9.99

No need for touch ups or second coats, stays put all day, keeping lips soft, hydrated and full of colour. 


The colour was smooth to apply and the colour was lovely and rich, but unfortunately after a few hours the colour just didn’t stick. 

Avon extra-lasting plump and stay lip colour (rosy resistance) £8.50

Plumping and long lasting base coat, high-shine top coat. Colour lasts 8 hours. 


Easy to apply, not the most bold of colours but there are others available. The top layer is sticky but normal lip balm works just as well without the horrid sticky feeling. 

Lasted really well, in fact it was still on the next morning!

Younique splash liquid lipstick (spontaneous) £21

Rich lipsticks leave you feeling brave, bold (and hydrated) all day long


I’m not sure the colour suits me. Goes on really smoothly and feels lovely on, but it did start to rub off after eating. 
Younique stiff upper lip stain (sleek) £18

Stubborn lip colour which won’t budge. 


Love love love this lip colour, lasts all day, doesn’t leave marks on glasses. Such a rich colour, lovely. 

Linkings waterproof lip crayon (#1) £3.25

Non stick to cup, non rub off. 


This went on so lovely and I thought the colour was great, unfortunately it didn’t last more than an hour and looked terrible, so I had to rub it off. 

Over all, I love the plump and stay Avon lip colour, without the top coat and adore younique lip stain. Would totally recommend those to all!
