My Hunt to Long Lasting Lip Colour

Hi my loves!!

Hope your all having a lovely weekend! It's been a pretty quiet one for me. I'm still not feeling quite right since being ill yesterday, so I'm taking it easy! My friend asked me earlier 'what is the one piece of makeup you can't live without?' Frankly, going without all my make up would be frightening, but it did get me thinking. For me I could not go with some form of lip stick/gloss. My lips have always been quite dry and they don't have alot of colour to them, so I'm always looking for a lip colour that lasts. I don't want to be applying lip gloss every 10 minutes! The three lip colours I'm going to review today are ones I have on the go at the moment.

First off we have Maybelline Super Stay 10hr Tinted Gloss in Lasting Pink. My first impression is that it applies nicely and dries to feel like you don't have anything on your lips at all. It feels quite natural and looks it too. The Lasting Berry is a darker pink than I normally go for, but it gives the lips a just bitten look (ooer!). I doesn't last 10 hours but is still pretty good in my opinion. Bought for about £7 from boots.

The second lip stain is also from Maybelline and is the Color Sensational in Tender Rose. I actually bought this before the Super Stay Gloss, but was very disappointed with it. The first thing I didn't like was that it's like a felt pen and wasn't nice to apply. I found the colour didn't last very long and just made my lips feel really cracked and dry. I also don't have a picture to show you how this one looks on because the pen dried out after about a week! I don't know if I was just unlucky and had a bad pen, but I wouldn't waste your money on this one! Bought from boots for about £6.

Lastly is my all time favourite lip colour! I can not recommend it more! It's the Collection 2000 Cream Puff in Cotton Candy. I know this isn't exactly a lip stain or tint, but it lasts just as long as any lip stain out there! It goes on really creamy and dries to a soft matt finish. It also smells really nice and sweet, which I think might put some people off, but I love it! Bought from Boots for about £3! Which is an absolute bargain in my books!

Have you got a favourite lip product? What is the one beauty product you couldn't live without? I would love to know!

I'm going to have a stall at a Vintage and Craft Fair in Cardiff tomorrow, so will be taking lots of photo's to do a post on it soon :)

Thanks for stopping by,

    I did a couple of lipstick reviews on my blog the other day if you fancy a peak

    1. Aww thank you! I'm off to have a look at your blog now :) X

  5. Glad you found some nice ones:D I recently picked up one of those new "Caresse" lipsticks and I'm really loving that. Not sure if it last long though...

    1. Aw thanks for the suggestion, think I need to start trying some more lipsticks :) X

    1. I'm also a fan of MAC lipsticks! I just can never decide what colour to choose, they have so many! I just want them all :) X

  7. Hi! I've been trying out the no17 lip stain pen and I'm a bit was great to start with and easy to apply but I found the pen nib dried out quickly :(
    I might try the Revlon version next as it seemed to stain my hand pretty well!

    1. I think I'm going to avoid pens from now on, they start off ok, but just dry out after a week or so, and they aren't even very cheap lol
      Thanks for commenting :) X

  8. Great review, my faves are anything by Mac and I love the Dior Addict glosses too- they seem to last longer that most glosses. Don't think I could possibly choose just one product that I couldn't live without, think it would have to be my entire make up collection lol : )

    1. I pray that it never comes to choosing just one product to use! lol Thanks for the comment :) X

  9. Love this post! I've been looking for lasting lip colours for aages. Great blog, I'm following :) x

  10. yay, great post, i'm always looking for a lip colour that actually lasts the test of time, hate leaving my house and it going away straight away!
    great blog by the way, just started following you!
