If you haven’t heard of the Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Un-Nudes Lipstick (available on Maybelline Official Store), you’re missing out! This range is specially created for girls who prefer to tone it down when it comes to makeup. It contains 10 beautiful shades ranging from warm to cool nudes. Meanwhile, red lip girls can find their ideal shades from the alternate Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Lipstick City Edition range (available on Senoritas.my)

This long-lasting lipstick also claims to last up to 16 hours and boasts an unbelievably comfortable formula. While it goes on tacky for the first 30 seconds, it eventually dries down into a smooth and lightweight matte finish. The Superstay Matte Ink lipsticks are transfer-proof but may fade a little on the inner part of your lips after an oily meal.

What’s the trick to K-Pop idols’ attractive makeup looks? The secret lies in their lipstick colours! Korean makeup places a strong emphasis on juicy, vibrant lip colours that flatter the skin tone. You can achieve this easily with Laneige Tattoo Lip Tint (available on Younfamily) which consists of ten intense shades that are bound to draw attention to your pout. Our favourite shade has got to be 09 Rose Prism — a warm and versatile rose colour that’s ideal for everyday wear!

Unlike other watery lip tints in the market, the Laneige Tattoo Lip Tint provides full lip coverage with just one swipe! The best part about this long-lasting lipstick is that it’s moisturising and doesn’t settle into fine lip lines. Additionally, the lipstick packs strong staining power that’ll last all day — you may even need to use the L’Oreal Paris Lip And Eye Makeup Remover (available on L’Oreal Paris Official Store) to remove all traces of it!

4. Australis Velourlips Matte Lip Cream

The Australis Velourlips Matte Lip Cream (available on Laycy Official Store) has long been a holy grail product among the online beauty community not only for its affordable price but also its awesome formula. It has a thick and creamy consistency that goes on smoothly to provide full opaque coverage. It’s also a lip product you can count on to last through a hearty meal or two!

However, if you don’t know the right shades to choose, the Velourlips Matte Lip Cream can be a miss more than a hit. We suggest avoiding the bright pinks and bubblegum shades as those tend to go on a little streaky. Instead, stick to darker shades such as Buda-pash and Doo-bai which are perfect for a spooky Halloween makeup look!

Lipstick can last up to 12 hours

5. L’Oreal Paris Rouge Signature Matte Ink Lipstick

Housed in a frosted glass bottle, the L’Oreal Paris Rouge Signature Matte Ink Lipstick (available on L’Oreal Paris Official Store) looks luxurious and elegant — something we’d be proud to whip out from our makeup bags for touch-ups. However, that won’t be necessary as this long-lasting lipstick isn’t going anywhere after your first application. The lipstick stops transferring after it sets and will last a good eight hours. The best part? It feels like you have nothing on your lips no matter how many layers you apply! 

Due to its oil-in-water formula, do not expect to achieve full opacity with one layer. Instead, you’ve got to patiently build the lipstick up to your desired intensity. Our favourite part of this product is its doe-foot applicator. It’s pointed tip allows for precise application and works amazingly well at lining the lips.

Lipstick can last up to 6 hours

Not all liquid lipsticks will cause your lips to feel dry and flaky. Change your impression of liquid lipsticks with the Rimmel London Stay Satin Liquid Lipstick (available on COTY Singapore Official Store)! Instead of a matte finish, this long-lasting lipstick sets into a velvety satin finish that doesn’t emphasize fine lines and dry patches. 

Choose from a total of seven lip shades. Besides the usual bright shades and classic nudes, there is also a bold purple for those feeling adventurous. Pair the nude shades with a smoky eyeshadow look for your next romantic night out! These long last lipsticks are also formulated with beeswax for an ultra smooth application that can last up to eight hours! With a nourishing formula and precise wand design for quick and easy touch-ups, you can go about your daily activities without worrying about your lips drying out!

7. FOCALLURE Waterproof Matte Liquid Lipstick

FOCALLURE has been gaining more attention this year for its wide range of high-quality makeup products. Moreover, the price is right when it comes to the FOCALLURE Waterproof Matte Liquid Lipsticks (available on Focallure Official Store)! At less than $2 per lipstick, there’s really nothing stopping you from collecting the entire collection. Go all out and fill your vanity with FOCALLURE’s metallic, nude, bright shades and more!

The Waterproof Matte Liquid Lipsticks feature a fuss-free formula that’s easy to apply and spreads beautifully on the lips. Try to avoid layering which isn’t necessary at all thanks to their strong pigmentation. The lipsticks last perfectly fine even when you drink or snack but may fade a little when you eat oily food. Also, if you have extremely dry lips, we highly recommend prepping your lips with the Shiseido Moilip Medicated Lip Cream (available on beautynthefit.sg) before applying the Waterproof Matte Liquid Lipstick.

When it comes to long-lasting lipsticks, we instantly think of matte lip products. However, Max Factor proved us wrong by launching the Max Factor Lipfinity 2-Step Lipstick (available on COTY Singapore Official Store), a gorgeous glossy lip colour that lasts all day! The duo consists of a lip stain and a specially formulated lip balm to help counter dry and cracked lips. And we’ve got to admit — we’ve never seen a longer-lasting glossy lip than the Lipfinity 2-Step lipsticks!

Using the product is simple. After exfoliating your lips, apply the lip stain evenly and keep your lips apart until the colour dries. Then, top it off with the moisturising balm to create glossy, moisturised lips. Don’t forget to keep the moisturising balm in your purse for touch-ups on the go!

9. 3CE Velvet Lip Tint

3CE is undoubtedly one of the hottest brands not only in Korea but all around the world. If you’ve yet to try their products, the 3CE Velvet Lip Tints (available on 3CE Official Store) are a good place to start. These best selling Korean lip tints have a creamy and airy texture that’s comfortable enough even for those with very dry lips. The best part about this oil-based formula is that it doesn’t sink into fine lines and instead, fills seamlessly into the ridges to make your lips appear fuller and smoother. 

Having a hard time choosing a shade? The 3CE Velvet Lip Tints feature many earthy-tones that are universally flattering. Our favourites have got to be #Enjoy Love — a cheerful pinkish coral shade and #Taupe — a deep brick red that’s great for the office. Apply the long-lasting lipstick as a gradient lip or a full one to match your outfit and mood!

Lo and behold, we’ve finally found a liquid lipstick that’s not only long-lasting but also feels amazing on the lips! Don’t believe us? Then, you’ve got to try the Wet N Wild MegaLast Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipsticks (available on Laycy Official Store)! The lipsticks come in eight flattering shades for different skin tones, including the popular 921 Nudist Peach — a peachy brownish nude and 929 Flame Of The Game — a fiery orange-red shade. 

Upon application, the long-lasting lipstick sets really quickly and becomes absolutely budge and transfer-proof. Furthermore, it doesn’t feather and provides full opacity with one swipe. We highly recommend wearing the MegaLast Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipsticks for important events such as weddings and photoshoots — they show up beautifully on camera! However, similar to most liquid lipsticks, the MegaLast Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipsticks may accentuate fine lines. To counter this, prep your lips with the Wet N Wild Perfect Pout Gel Lip Liner (available on Laycy Official Store) to create a smooth surface and help extend the wear time of your liquid lipstick significantly. 

Lipstick can last up to 8 hours

It’s time to pucker up!

No matter how beautiful a long-lasting lipstick is, it would not be able to perform to its full potential on cracked and dry lips. Take good care of your pout with the best lip scrubs and masks. Meanwhile, if long-lasting lipsticks are not your cup of tea, why not consider these easy-to-use tinted lip balms instead?
