Everyone loves long lasting lip colours but with so many options available in liquid mattes nowadays it’s hard to find the right one that stays for a longer period and does not smudge. If you are a lazy bee like me who does not like to keep reapplying lipsticks again and again then check out these amazing lip colours that will stay all day on your lovely lips. 

  1. Huda Beauty Liquid Matte – $40 

Huda tops this list because of its lightweight, transferproof and comfortable liquid colour that does not dry out your lips and stays upto 4-5 hours. You can easily survive a hot date or a lunch without fading. With highest reviews on Sephora NZ this tops my list because of the formula, variety of colours and the quality of the pigment.

      2. Smashbox Always On Liquid Lipstick – $42

This has one of the amazing formulas I have ever tried in liquid lipsticks, the staying power is amazing and it’s super comfortable on the lips because of its oil infused formula. The colour variations are exceptional ranging from warm to nudes and dirty pinks. It comes in a very flashy cubical box with a nice precision tip applicator which is easy to use.

      3. Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink – $20

These lip colours will stay all day long even after 12 hours and it will survive all sorts of oily and outlandish meals. With a price of only $20 it comes with a variety of colours from quirky ones to the everyday shades. This lip colour will never let you down with its staying power. Just a quick tip don’t keep on reapplying this on your lips. The formula becomes very uncomfortable on your lips if you keep applying it, so the best way is to completely remove the existing layer on the lips and then apply it again. Don’t forget to prime your lips with a lip balm before applying this otherwise it can dry out your lips.

      4. Chambor Extreme Wear Transferproof Liquid Lipstick – $36

Next on the list is another budget friendly lip colour from Chambor, this is long lasting, transfer proof with smooth and creamy matte finish. This provides intense colour in just one stroke for long hours. I like this lip colour because of its smooth finish on the lips and its coverage. It’s hard to get this in NZ but you can order this online. 

      5. MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour – $50

MAC can never disappoint you when it comes to the shades and the formulas. This matte liquid colours feels like luxury on your lips. The formula gives velvety and a matte finish. As the name suggests, the colours are very dramatic and outstanding. One thing I just love about these shades is their pigment, it is so intense and rich to let you flaunt that perfect pout. 

      6. Stila All Day Liquid Lipstick – $39

Stila is my favourite brand when it comes to the shades and colours. They have everything from sheer, shimmers to mattes in this range. The lip colour is full coverage in just one swipe and it’s lightweight too. The formula is enriched with vitamin E and Avocado oil to keep your lisp hydrated. Usually matte lip colours are little drying but this one has won me over. It’s very hydrating and comfortable on the lips and remains for upto 6 hours.
