I have decided that I really really want to have darkish red lips on my wedding day! I have a porcelaine complexion and dark brown hair so I think the red lips will look very elegant, my only problem is that I can’t find any red lipstick out there that doesn’t smudge onto my hubby to-be’s face! I really want a longwear lipcolour that doesnt start to look dry and flaky, or get the annoying line of seperation on the bottom lip! Please share your own experiences with different products because I feel like I have already tried so many and none of them work! I tried all the covergirl, revlon, maybeline, gosh and clinique so we can just skip those since they all stink 🙁 Let me know what you ladies have had good experiences with!!!

Sephora creme lip stain, No. 1 Always Red.

I think you are probably going to find it difficult! The only thing I have ever used was more of a lip stain than proper shining lipstick. It was a revlon one but you have probably already tried that.
It seems daft because you often see photographs of girls with red lips on their wedding day but I have always wondered if it gets everywhere/ wears off!

@daybyday: are you sure that one doesnt kiss off?

@cairnsgirl: Oh it does not kiss off. I made it through a Christmas dinner party and an entire bachelorette party (of heavy drinking and eating and kissing my girlfriends on the cheeks) and by the end of the night I still had to put lotion on my lips and scrub it off with toilet paper.
As long as your lips are moisturized before you put it on, it won’t get dry and flaky and it will not rub off. It’s pretty amazing stuff and very pigmented. I’ve only used the one color but they have some darker plum/maroon shades too.

Have you tried CoverGirl Outlast. I just bought it for my wedding in a few months.
It comes in a lot of colours, it didn’t budge from my lips and I literally could not get it off!!!

@cairnsgirl: I have been experimenting with the Cover Girl and I was not impressed either. Was there any other drugstore brand that worked? I was thinking about trying the Maybelinne 24hr stuff next. Not good?
I’ve heard a lot about MAC’s longwear lipsticks….supposedly they are pretty great and being MAC they have awesome shades of red! If you do find one that works, please let me know!

@cairnsgirl: I just bought new MAC pro longwear in red.. its new here in the UK! On one side it has a coloured lip gloss, and on the other just a clear one.. IT IS AMAZING! Like you, I was worried it will go all over my teeth, veil, fiance’s face on the day… but I have been wearing it around the house all day, eating and drinking with it on and it hasn’t come off. It does need a top up, maybe once.. and you can top up the clear gloss as much as you like – but the red will stay on!! It’s a bit tricky to take off though 🙂

I haven’t tried it for red, but I wear the drugstore long wear colors (I think I’ve tried most brands, and have used dark and bold colors) that come with 2 parts- a liquid color and a clear topcoat. So long as you keep your lips properly moisterized, and don’t cake on the color layer, flaking has never been a problem for me, and the color stays all night.
