With the effects of getting older and the currant cooler weather which makes skin dry out more I need to look for a better lipstick.
Can anyone recommend a reasonably priced lipstick that lasts well throughout the day but doesn't dry lips or go clumpy around the edges?

Maybelline 24hr lipstick is on lots of ebay offers for four or five pounds. Do you think they are genuine, or could they be fakes?

Barry M every time! buy online.They stay on for ages, even after meals out or drinks.

chickenlegs they are genuine , they only cost around £7 normally . I used to use the long lasting, two stage lipsticks but found they were very drying even when you use the top coat constantly . My lips were actually sore and rough so I had to stop using them . I have a Lancôme one now which seems to last a bit longer than others .

Best lipstick is Max Factor Lipfinity. IVe been using it for a few years, nice colours and it lasts all day. I never leave my bedroom without applying it first. Makes me feel better.

I am just so impressed you are so far ahead not only with gift buying but wrapped too. I still have several to get. I was going yesterday but snow stopped me, now bad ice today. I hate wrapping so put off to Christmas Eve. Could you get another, keep receipt and if first one turns up take it back for refund?
