I've been on a search to find a long lasting lipstick for prom. There's going to be a three course meal and I don't really want to be reapplying lipstick between dishes. Obviously there is no miracle product and some lipstick will remove itself when eating food. But, I think I've found a product that really lasts.
Revlon's latest innovation in long lasting lipstick is their Ultimate Suede lipsticks, which are part of their ColorStay collection. Even with a TV advert, I couldn't find any information about it on their website which I find a little odd as every other product in the collection is there. However, an advert in Company magazine mentions that this lipstick contains Shea butter and aloe to moisturise your lips in its long wear formulae which they promise lasts for 8 hours.
Although I love the lipstick, it isn't without it's flaws. I don't know whether it is the consistency or the size and shape of the lipstick, but I find it difficult to apply. It takes longer then I would expect to get the product on your lip. I know this isn't a major issue but I find it different but I'll happily try to get used to it. Also, it smell a little bit like play dough. I actually like the smell of play dough but I know that it could be a turn off for others.
What lipsticks/glosses are you loving right now?
