Which lip products would you recommend for a wedding? I.e. something kiss-proof and able to survive an entire day.
When it comes to important events in ones’ life, the last thing anyone wants to be doing is worrying about their lipstick coming off, fading or in the case of a wedding, ending up all over your significant others face. Here’s some of my favourite longwear lipsticks.
If you’ve been following my blog for a while now you’d know that this product is my ride or die. It wouldn’t matter whether it was 5, 50 or 500 dollars I’d rave about it either way - that’s how good it is. 2 Step Lipsticks often cop a lot of flack but in recent years they have become reformulated with new technology, the key is just to use them right. When using this you need to apply the colour side first onto completely dry lips and then smile for a minute or so until the lipstick sets (do not smack your lips together, they will stick) once the lipstick is touch dry then apply the moisturising balm top-coat and you are good to go. These have amazing pigmentation and last, I mean LAST. I’ve worn these from 9am to 9pm with eating and drinking and there are no signs of wear, they even last through Christmas dinner.

A cheaper, slightly less better version of the L’Oreal Infallible Lipsticks. I personally find these ones a little more drying (perhaps because the topcoat is more of a gloss than a balm) and they can start to fade a little throughout the day, but either way they’re still a good option and sure beat your regular lipstick (plus they run cheaper than the L’Oreal)
Your other option is to wear a soft, well moisturising sheer lipstick that you can re-apply throughout the day as though it were a lip balm, if you’re not going to wear a bold or long-wear lipstick than this is your best bet. They need maintaining but they’re not “high maintenance” as such. I love:
