So I am a huge fan of bright lipstick. I’m doing my own makeup for the wedding and while I have a rather large arsenal of eye blinding colors that I regularly wear, I’m hoping to find a relatively bright lipstick on our wedding day that will stay put. The majority of the colors I own are great for going out, but most don’t have a lot of staying power and definitely transfer when I kiss FI. I’ve used Stila Long Wear Lip Color in Caprice and that is the only one I’ve encountered that is kiss proof, but it’s also extremely drying and gets flakey really fast. Does anyone have a recommendation for a bright color that will last for ~5 hours of eating, drinking, talking and kissing with minimal touch ups? I’m really into fuchias, hot pinks, and red oranges, so anything in those color families would be great!

I am on an eternal quest to find a long-wearing lipstick that doesn’t dry out my lips- its tough to find! My current favorites are:
– Dior Lipaddict. Not super long-wearing but it does stain my lips a bit, so the color stays just a bit muted. I love its texture. Lipaddict extreme is a bit more pigmented, but I felt like it was more drying.
– Revlon Just Bitten Kissable balm stains. I have so many different colors of these! They really do last, but its not a true lipstick. Sometimes I layer them under a similiar-shade lipstick for more punch.
– Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter. Good colors, very moisturizing, but not long-wearing. The more pigmented colors do have a bit of a stain.
– NARS lipstick. Some colors last longer than others, but I have to layer/blot to get them to stay a decent length of time.
I’ve heard good things about Mac lipsticks but I personally hate their texture. I want to try Makeup Forever, Burberry, and Smashbox’s, since I’ve heard they are good.

I wear Maxfactor Flipstick Colour Effect in Gipsy Red 30 – it is AMAZING! I get so many comments on it – it’s double ended, the main colour is bright red and the other end is a sort of gold shimmer that you layer over the top. I wear it to work most days – I put it on once in the morning and it stays on all day! Through food, drink etc. I love it! It still amazes me how long it lasts – I have a lot of MAC lipsticks in other shades which I also love but they don’t wear as well and you have to reapply fairly often.
I don’t live in the US but i’m assuming you’d be able to get the same Maxfactor products we do?

Bobbi Brown’s Rich Lip Color – really nicely pigmented colors

If you’re looking for a drug store brand, try Rimmel’s new line with Kate Moss. It was an impulse buy for me, and I’m shocked at how long it lasts. I put it on today at 10am, had Starbucks, lunch & a bottle of water & the color is still going strong. I’m really pleased with it.

surprisingly, wet n wild has lipstick that stays on pretty well and doesn’t dry out! it’s sooo cheap (like $2 at any drugstore), so you can try it out without losing much money. none of their colors work quite right with my skin tone though, so i’m stilll looking for a good one. wet n wild’s colors are all super vibrant, and i like more of a raspberry color. 😉

I’d go with the Sephora Creme Lip Stains. They come in dozen or so colors, are highly pigmented, and do NOT come off. Even with a lot of scrubbing…

I use Two Faced Lip Primer to help make the lip last longer. I like MAC’s lipstick formula since it doesn’t get dry on me. Makeup Forever has tons of bright colored lipsticks and they last pretty long, too.

When it comes to longevity it’s all about the lip stains. PLUS, it wont come off when you’re giving your hubby smooches and make his lips all lip-sticky.
If you’re looking for drug store I reccomend the covergirl lipstains. They have some bright ones and some that are berry, and they’ve all lasted at least 4-5 hours when I’ve worn them and then I touched it up a little. You can put a little gloss over it after it dries too.
Tarte is a more expensive brand but their lip stains are awesome too!!!
If you’re dead set on lipstick I’d recommend maybelline superstay lipstick in Pink Peony. it’s a waaaay bright pink.
