Longest lasting lipstick I have ever tried!
Sadly the colour range isn't that great and I wasn't immediately attracted to all the shades. I did like the look of 430 Stay With Me Coral so I picked it up and boy am I glad I did!
As a long wearing lipstick, this is a tiny bit drying (not too much), but don't make the mistake of putting this on top of lip balm, or it won't last as long! If you do want to use lip balm, make sure it sinks in completely before applying this. Your lips do need to be in nice condition otherwise the lipstick can cling a bit to dry patches.
Because my lips are slightly dry, after the lipstick has set I put a little lip balm on top, and then also reapply about 2-3 times a day and I feel that also helps it wear out better and evenly.
If I put this on in the morning at 8:30, after breakfast, tea, water and lunch, it is still there when I get home at 6 in the evening!! A bit faded of course, but still there.
I obviously rushed out to buy 2 more shades.
I've purchased so many lipsticks and colors that promise to last a certain number of hours and every time they wear off more quickly than ones that don't. I was pretty impressed with this one. It doesn't last 14 hours but it came pretty close. It does have a little bit of a scent to it but not bad. What I noticed was how nicely it 'settled in', per say, my lips and defined them so well. It was very flattering. Only 2 'cons' I have would be that it does dry your lips out. It goes on nicely but your lips do feel instantly dryer than normal. I put on a lip balm before applying it and although that does help with the dryness it causes the color to wear off faster. The second 'con' would be the colors. The perpetual peony is VERY pink and the infinite iris is pretty red, as opposed to being more of a mauve shade. There's really no in between shades.
I stumbled upon this lipstick in one of Lisa Eldridges videos and finally, it has been released in Germany.
Iīm a big fan of bold lipcolours and like to wear them in daytime, so a longlasting formula is essential in a lipstick for me.
I bought it in a drugstore for 11 Euros, which is a good price.
The colour I got is 510 non stop red, which is a great matte pink based red. They do another more classical red which is called 540 ravishing rouge and has a more satiny finish and is less pink based.
The 510 non stop red is such a vibrant and bold, yet flattering colour on my NC 20/C1 skin. I tend to look sallow and Lisa recommended this colour exactly for this purpose. What can I say? It totally works. Brightens up my complexion, makes me look fresh and awake.
The finish depends on which colour you choose, because they have colours with matte, satiny or a more shiny finish. You can swatch it on your hand, so you can see the finish. I personally love a matte finish for a bold lipcolour, so I choose 510 non stop red.
The lipstick claims to be longlasting and I can really agree to that claim. I have to say, that no lipstick stays completely on you lips and never transfers on to coffee cups. That is an illusion. But one day, I went to a film festival after work with a friend of mine and this lipstick survived drinking hot cocoa, tea and water, a lunch salad and a dinner pizza with my friend. I apllied it at 6 am and came home at 9.30 pm. I only reapplied it once, before I met my friend and it looked still good and only slightly vanished in the inside and corners of my lips.Pretty good for a lipstick!
The lipstick is definitely not moisturizing, but itīs not very drying either. I often wear Ruby Woo from MAC which I find more drying than this one. But I donīt look for a moisturizing lipstick, because I embrace having a rather dry and longlasting lipstick when I wear bold colours. I have unnerving experiences with more creamy lipsticks like Maybellines colour sensational, which I have to reapply every time after eating or drinking. In my opinion, moisturizing and longlasting donīt fit together.
When I first apply it, it feels slightly sticky and smells like cherries.But then, the lipstick wears comfortable and doesnīt bother me at all.
I usually wear MACs prep and prime for lips underneath, which I bought especially for wearing it under bright lipsticks.
I apply it with a lip brush in the morning and carry the lipstick in my purse in case I have to touch up.
As you can see, I really love this lipstick and plan to buy more colours. I feel so safe wearing this longlasting lipstick as I know, I donīt have to worry about the lipstick wearing off while eating or drinking or the lipstick smearing all over my face. But I admit, I would only buy bold and bright colours as I see no need for this longlasting formula when it comes to nude colours.
Definitely worth a try when you love wearing a bold lipcolour.
I really like the color of this lipstick(I have it in Perpetual Peony), but I found that it settles into the lines of my lips. It also did not moisturize my lips at all and, in fact, they felt dry.
I bought this in #010 Ultimate Blush. I have several problems with it. First, is the smell. It has a very strong, floral, almost fruity smell. If you don't mind smell, then that's fine. I do not like it when my lipstick smells. It's right under my nose, and I can smell it all day long.
Second is the color. I thought it looked like a nice pink, and it comes out a nice, slightly darker than my very pale lips, and it looks nice against my extremely pale skin. Unfortunately, it has shimmer. Not like a gentle make-your-lips-stand-out shimmer. An I-bought-this-in-a-Hello-Kitty-makeup-kit shimmer. I'm sure other colors are fine, but this color is horrendous.
I give it a 3, however, because it did last reasonably long (obviously not 14 hours, but let's be real) without over-drying my lips.
If I was just rating for color, I would give it a 1. If you don't like shimmer, avoid 010 Ultimate Blush. It doesn't look shimmery on the outside of the tube, but since I couldn't open it at the drug store to see (and smell), I wasn't aware.
Not happy with this product. Maybe longwear lipsticks aren't for me, I don't know. But I found this one to be sticky and lumpy on my lips, and it certainly didn't last 14 hours... maybe 3. I also didn't like the array of colours and the one I settled on looked pretty bad applied.
I love this lipstick.
Colour: Ultimate Blush which is the beautiful warm pink, but throws off this bluish reflect which i guess ultimately makes it pretty neutral. Its definately a metallic colour.
Staying power: Stays alot longer than other lipstick that claims to have staying power... and the plus is that it doesnt dry your lips out.
I saw this in store a few months ago but didnt buy into the hype, but then I watched a video by Lisa Edgerton who raved about the lipstick so i gave it a try.
IN LOVE WITH IT!!
Love this lipstick! I have to wear a red shade for work and I have had so much trouble trying to find the right combination of long lasting yet not drying. A lot of moisturising lipsticks I have found are not very long lasting. Now I have found the one! This lipstick is long lasting - however, I would not say 14 hours. After eating I touch up a tiny bit just to keep the look perfect, but can get away with touching up maybe once or twice during my shift which I think is pretty good.
The other great thing is I have not ended the week with dry lips from wearing this every day! Hence, I am in love! I only have the ravishing rouge which I wear every work day but am now going to go and purchase colours for my days off!
I liked it. I needed a true red. I usually don't wear red lipstick because I'm very fair but I am tan right now and needed a red for a special event. I also wanted something that will last. I purchased Ravishing Rouge. It is a great neutral red. I like the fact that there's only 1 step. Whether or not it lasts remains to be seen but the color is beautiful. Feels a little dry but I am 57 years old and don't like the shiny glossy look. So far, so good. I'm pleased with everything so far but I guess time will tell regarding the last-ability.
