Please may I ask for recommendations for long lasting lipstick. I am still wearing it despite mask wearing. I'm looking for a nice cerise/raspberry colour....happy to spend.

My DD2 introduced me to Maybelline's Super Stay 24 Colour. It’s in two parts with lipstick colour to apply first then, after a minute, a sealant which helps it last. I favour Absolute Plum (340) but other colours are available. It’s sold in larger branches of Boots also Tesco, I believe, and I’d thoroughly recommend it. Prices vary and my research for the link below shows that Amazon sell it cheaply. Otherwise, it costs about £10.

I like Clinique Chubby Sticks - lovely colours

My best lipstick is an Elizabeth Arden one with ceramide. I think this range is in a gold casing if you want to check out the colours.

I can never get my lipstick ? to stay on so use Lipcote on top.

What a brilliant link thanks, Ashcombe. You can test out the different shades on a photo of yourself. That’s armchair shopping at its best!

I get mine from Poundland. They're great.

I paid £2.99 at a local cheap store last week. It seems fine.

I second Ashcombe’s recommendation. Have worn superstay for years. My favourite raspberry shade is no 135 Perpetual Rose. It stays put all day!

I started to use Maybelline 24Hr Superstay when I noticed that my own lipstick was starting to drift into a couple of fine lines coming from my bottom lip. I've tried a few different shades but usually return to same as OP, Absolute Plum. I apply colour, leave it a couple of minutes, blot it and then use the balm that comes with it.

Been using Max Factor lipfinity for years, stays on very well. If I want something quick and creamy Magic is pretty good.

I use Revlon lipliner and Natio lip pencil. Stays on all day.

I third Ash’s recommendation!
I’m not a lipstick person, but I’ve worn that to weddings in the past and it really does perform.

Have you tried using lip prime first? Stops "bleeding" into creases and lipstick lasts much longer.

A lipliner and Charlotte Tilbury. Works wonderfully well.
