What is the best long-wearing liquid lipstick?

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 4 criteria: how long-lasting it was, is it transfer-proof, dryness, and comfort.

#1 Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick

The lipstick didn’t pass the transfer test. After eating it just slid off.

#2: Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick

The lowest price of the four lipsticks tested. Stayed on after eating.

#3: Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick

The good news is, this lipstick is super pigmented so you don’t have to use a lot of it, but it did get 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 reviewers overall pick!

#4: Yves Saint Laurent Tatouage Couture Liquid Matte Lip Stain

This is the most expensive one out of the four.  It didn’t hold up well at all.

#5: NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment – American Woman

Very drying. Pigmentation is good though.
