Bionic Asks: Long wearing lipcolor

Bionic Beauty Asks - Makeup and beauty question blog article series
It’s one of the ultimate quests in makeup- to find that perfect long-wearing lip color. The one that doesn’t crinkle, wander, and appear all over your teeth (and significant other’s cheek). Then you throw in the formulas- so many are dry unless you apply a top coat every hour (which is really just a plain lip balm that you’re paying a ton more for…), or they’re uber-sticky.

With that in mind, this week’s Bionic Asks Have you found your ultimate long-wearing lip color? Now’s your chance to shout it from the rooftops…er, blogosphere. Please share! Brand, formula, certain color?

Hmm, I haven’t found the perfect lip color. Lately I’ve been using sephora lip gloss. Sephora lip gloss is the only thing that doesn’t make my lips peel! All the skin like peels and feels all nasty! Do you have any remedy for that lol?

I just wanted to tell you that through the whole month of november at walgreens, if you buy almay pure blends foundation $10, it will produce a $10 RR making it free! AND if you buy the pure blend eyeshadow, lip gloss, or mascara (around $7) it will produce a $5 RR making it only $2! But to make this deal even sweeter, ONLY this week, almay is on sale for BOGO50% off! So if you but the mascara and the eyeshadow it would be, $10 mascara + $3.50(w/ 1/2 off) eyeshadow = 13.50, get back a $15 in RR so really you just made $1.50 on 2 fabulous products! * An RR is a register reward is basically a coupon for X amount off your next purchase of anything in the store(it expires 2 weeks after your purchase though!)

I’ve been going periodically to Walgreens this week to stock up on this deal because I’m making gift baskets for christmas for everyone! Can’t beat this deal! Oh forgot to say, you can only use one deal per transaction, such as you can buy one foundation and one eyeshadow, but you CANNOT do 2 foundations in one transaction, both RR’s will NOT print.

I prefer glosses and balms over lipstick or any of the longwear products. All the ones that I have tried made my lips super dry.

I’ve lost count of the lipsticks I’ve thrown away because they made my lips dry (not to mention the cost!!) Thankfully I have found a lipstick I love through the company I work for!
I now use Micro-bubble Lipstick from Pink Papaya. The micro-bubbles continually release conditioners to keep lips soft and color fresh and it contains vitamins A,C & E plus chamomile and aloe to soothe the lips.

Hi! My two pics are YSL Pur colors. They stay PUT!!! Gorgeous, velvety color too.

My other new find is DuWop Private Red. After the surface color wears off, it leaves a great red stain that LASTS.

There aren’t many tubes of lipstick or lipbalm that I have used all the way to the core, but Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer (Rhubarb or Watermelon for everyday wear and Fig for evening wear since it’s a little darker) have that POW! staying power. Not only does it condition my lips, the tint lasts even after meals. The mint/camphor cooling sensation is a big kiss, too, when applying it.
