We Tried These 3 Long-Lasting Lip Colors (And Here’s What Happened)
Lipstick is meant to stay on your LIPS — especially when it comes to a long-lasting formula. However, this isn’t always the case and we often find that those “all-day” lipsticks sometimes actually mean “until lunchtime.” In true MDC fashion, we decided to put these long-wear lippies to the test. And by test, we mean several cups of coffee, puppy kisses, lunch dishes and maybe even a few donuts.
“I drink at least two cups of coffee a day. And when I say drink, I mean chug. I also have a weakness for the office dog, Crumpet, who I end up smothering in kisses on the regular. And let’s not forget the eight hours of chewing on my lips as I type away on my computer. My lipstick (usually) doesn’t stand a chance, but this one passed the test!”
“With the amount of snacking I do, I’m surprised the lipstick lasted a single second. After swiping it on, I may have had a donut (or two) to go with my daily iced vanilla latte fix. So healthy, right? If that didn’t do the job of attacking my nude lippie, I figured my lunch would, but nope! That sucker stayed on, and while the color wasn’t as visible by the end of the day, it was definitely still there.”
“I was pretty impressed by my lip color's performance. I really put it through the ringer that day! Between my two cups of coffee (Pumpkin Spice Lattes, of course), chronic lip-biting habit and endless Snickers-intake, I'm surprised there was any trace of red left at the end of the day. While definitely faded, the shade was visible enough to give my lips a little pop of color come 5 p.m.!”
