We're always on the lookout for long-lasting lipsticks because let's admit it: Retouching is a bitch! Now that we've got that truth bomb out of our system, it's time to investigate and discover the lippies that stay on no matter what. Below, we asked Pinays the lip products they always rely on:
L'Oreal Infallible Pro Matte Liquid Lipstick in Cowboy
"I've tried relatively quite a lot of lipsticks, but this one is on the top of my list on the category of longevity. Upon fresh application, it has some stickiness to it, but once the L’Oreal Infallible Pro Matte Liquid Lipstick in Cowboy has set, my lips are set for the day as well! Plus, I love that this particular shade is really flattering for my morena skin.
"I'm a heavy snacker and coffee drinker, and I also indulge in enjoying full (greasy) meals (who doesn't?!). So, I'm used to my lipstick almost all gone by lunchtime. Nothing makes it to merienda and dinner, except this one! I used this lippie for a whole day of meals and meetings—I was REALLY impressed! It had very minimal to no transfer on anything. No touch-ups or reapplication needed. I may be drained after a full day at work, but not a trace of that on my lips come by EOD. I even pushed it further after dinner, and it’s still there. Amazing." - Jennifer

Clio Mad Matte Tint in 09 Chili Brick
"I’m usually not a sucker for super long-lasting lippies because I find scrubbing them off at the end of the day to be super tedious. With that said, I generally lean towards lip tints for my everyday use. Being a heavy, heavy water drinker, I already expect my tints to fade after a few sips. If I apply my tint by 9 a.m., my lips are almost totally bare by noon. But one tint that stood out, for me, was the Clio Mad Matte Tint because it actually left a significant tint on my lips even after drinking water and having a meal.
"What makes it unique is that it looks like a liquid lipstick (in terms of packaging) but its color payoff is not as bold as one. It keeps the lips looking naturally tinted but is on the long-lasting side of the spectrum. It’s perfect for people who cannot help being hydrated and looking cute all throughout the day!" – Cindy

Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in Unicorn Blood
"I have this weird habit of changing my lipstick every few hours during a particularly stressful day—even when everything is still perfectly intact. I'm not sure if it's a coping mechanism, but by the end of that day, my lips feel a little raw from all the rubbing. So when I want to look fiercer than I feel, I usually go for a matte lipstick that won't budge so I'm never tempted to switch throughout the day. For this, I rely on Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in the shade Unicorn Blood. I love it because it doesn't make my lips look parched, and it's light enough that I often forget I even have anything on my puckers. Plus, I'm obsessed with the color: a dark rusty matte red that won't budge." - Ysa

Pat McGrath MatteTrance Lipstick in 1995
"I never had any expectations of makeup legend Pat McGrath's MatteTrance lipsticks because I don't like and use matte formulas. But this one changed everything for me. MatteTrance has the smoothest and creamiest application I've ever seen in a matte lipstick. It doesn't emphasize lines and dryness, and it lasts really well.
"I drink a lot of water and tea on a daily basis, so I always tend to see lipstick marks on my tumbler or glass. But with MatteTrance, the marks only appear ONCE, and after I erase them with a piece of tissue paper, they never appear again.I've also eaten greasy pizza when wearing MatteTrance and while I probably ate some of the lipstick, whenever I would go to the bathroom to touch up I wouldn't have to because my the lipstick still looked perfect.
"In all my years as a makeup user, this was only the second lipstick I've actually finished. I couldn't get enough of it! Its lasting power, formula, and gorgeous color all make it worth the price tag for me." - Tisha

Fenty Stunna Lip Paint in Unlocked
"Before purchasing the Fenty Stunna Lip Paint in Unlocked, I read reviews to find out if it was worth it, and I was convinced by what I saw on the internet. It was love at first swipe. Its bold fuschia color evenly coated my lips, and it did not cake despite its matte finish. I also got a lot of compliments whenever I would wear it.
"I remember eating steak and seafood paella in one sitting (I'm a fan of rich flavors, and I don't care about food-pairings, LOL!), and checked using my compact mirror if my lipstick disappeared. My friend said: "GIRL, powerful naman your lipstick!" And she was right, the Fenty Stunna Lip Paint remained on my pout after a heavy meal.
"On that same day, I drank coffee at night (I have a weird habit of drinking a cup of Joe as a nightcap), and found my cup stained. BUT, as expected, my Fenty Stunna Lip Paint still looked vivid! I also had two greasy cookies and cake during that time, too.
"BTW, I won't go into details, but I just discovered that it's kiss-proof. LOL! I'll never let this lipstick go." - Ira

Tom Ford Lipstick in Casablanca
"I remember being stuck in Chicago for hours during a layover. At first, the plane was just delayed, but the aircraft itself turned out to have problems because 45 minutes after we had boarded, they made us deplane. I must have spent almost an entire day languishing in the airport, but my Tom Ford lipstick in Casablanca held up pretty well." - Jen
