I spend way too much money on makeup — I really do, especially on lipstick lately. I find a color I think is fabulous, but the formula sucks.
So that got me thinking, surely someone out there has done some research into this very subject.
I can’t be the only one out there looking for the best long-wearing liquid lipstick. Turns out I was right. Beauty insider on YouTube recently did just that!
So what are the results? I’m not exactly a perfectly scientific test since they didn’t test the lipsticks with the same foods, but overall it’s a great guide.
Their test was based on four criteria: how long-lasting it was, is it transfer-proof, dryness, and comfort.
The lipstick didn’t pass the transfer test. After eating it just slid off.
The lowest price of the four lipsticks tested. Stayed on after eating.
The good news is that this lipstick is super pigmented, so you don’t have to use a lot of it, but it got on her teeth almost immediately after putting it on. After eating, it stayed on pretty well. The formula was creamy, and it lasted a long time. This was the reviewer’s overall pick!
This is the most expensive one out of the four. It didn’t hold up well at all.
Very drying. Pigmentation is good, though.
