Our top 3 long-lasting lipsticks for NYE

By  | 

With New Year’s Eve just round the corner, there’s one thing that needs to last through the night: Lipstick! But when it comes to it, the dream is finding one that lasts through the kissing, partying and champagne that comes with 2018. Here’s contributor Rosie Boon top 3 long-lasting lipsticks.

#3 Max Factor LIPFINITY, Boots £8.99












Shade- 66 “Scarlett”

This literally glides on to your lips, Max Factor claims a “cashmere feel” and that’s quite a claim but the softness of the lipstick is remarkable. 8 hours of wear is what they offer, and I would say it will definitely last throughout NYE dinner (and pudding) but could do with some reapplication by the time it gets to the evening. What really makes this lipstick one of my favourites is its high pigmentation; vibrant colour but still feels lightweight with it’s heavy finish.


#2 Maybelline’s SuperStay 14 Hour Lipstick, Boots £6.99











Shade- 260 “Always Plum”

Maybelline really outperforms with this one. A luxury feel on your lips; just smooth enough and no sticky, heavy feel. What I love the most is the lipstick looks exactly how it does when it’s not on your lips. I wasn’t expecting the glitter in this shade but I love glitter, so no fault there. The formula has enough staying power to survive a meal, I know because I’ve tried. 14 hours though? That’s pushing it, try 8-9.


#1 Estee Lauder Pure Colour Long Lasting Lipstick, £23.00












Shade- Rose Tea, Crème finish

If you’ve got the money to spend, here is where to spend it. After succumbing to temptation on Black Friday last year, this Estee Lauder Lipstick has become one of my beauty staples. Now it’s one of the more expensive lipsticks but for all the right reasons. Enhanced with ingredients like shea butter and murumuru butter this won’t dry your lips out in the cold, cold winter. You can build up this lipstick depending on what sort of lip-look you’re going for.
