Favorite Long Lasting Red Lip

Long Lasting Red - 1

Nothing makes me feel more glamorous than a bold red lip. However, nothing feels less glamorous than knowing you have lipstick on your eyebrow (don’t laugh, it happens…). I decided to share with you my favorite reds for those days that I can’t be bothered to touch up or I know I’m going to be eating.

Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella – These lip pencils are bulletproof. These will not budge, they will not end up on your chin and they will look good all day! This particular shade leans cool and it’s just the perfect shade for a night out. It may not last through rib night or something but a few cocktails won’t moveย it!

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in Grand Cru – This is a more budget friendly option that I highly recommend! This is more of a liquid lipstick mousse texture, it’s really interesting. It’s very soft and easy to apply although I do recommend a brush to get a crisp line.ย Unlike many liquid lipsticks this one is really easy to reapply. It doesn’t get flaky and clumpy and gross. Positives!

These are great shades for the clumsy, those that perpetually touch their face or those that are just in general not very aware of their eccentric hand movements. What are your bullet proof lipsticks? Anyone else get lipstick in weird places? (Please keep this PG folks…)

    Lipstick on your eyebrows… really? How is it even possible haha ๐Ÿ™‚ I had the same Bourjois one however ended up losing it, I can’t seem to find it ๐Ÿ™ I just need to repurchase. Nars one sounds really good and love the shade of it. x

      I am excessively clumsy! It would be amusing if I didn’t end up breaking so much of my stuff! Definitely recommend the Nars pencil it’s awesome!

    Hahaha, rib night! I’m dying. Love this post! I’m always hesitant to wear a bold lip when I know I’ll be eating and whatnot. I need to look into getting something like these so I don’t have to worry about it. These look awesome!

      I definitely recommend these! I’m excessively clumsy so if they can last on me…
