Today’s roundup is for all the girls asking for the best new long-wear lip formulas. I love that there are so many new formulas on the market for us to choose from. It’s nice to have options! I’m usually a glossy lip lover but I’ve been trying out more matte formulas, especially since the fall season is around the corner and mattes are nice to wear this time of year!
I put four new formulas to the test from Sephora. They always have the newest launches first and I love their Beauty Insider Program (you can sign up for free here). After playing around with some new formulas I am really surprised that the budge-proof lip DOES exist! Here’s what I tried and my thoughts on each formula.
Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Ultra-Comfort Transfer-Proof Lipsticks
The Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Ultra-Comfort Transfer-Proof Lipsticks ($21 each) are among the most popular for liquid lipsticks. I usually don’t opt for liquid lipsticks because they often look really dry and darken on my lips but there are a lot of really great colors in this line. I tried one from a sample I got as a Beauty Insider and was immediately hooked.
Sweet Talker is a muted pink and Perfectionist is a pretty cool rose pink. I really want to try more shades! The formula is a lightweight liquid. It dries to a comfortable matte finish and once it dries it stays put for hours. Lasting power is really good as long as your lips stay dry. It will transfer to a straw if you drink or if you eat, but other than that I’d give it an A+ for pigment and B+ for lasting power.
Urban Decay Vice Lip Bond Glossy Liquid Lip
The Urban Decay Vice Lip Bond Glossy Liquid Lipsticks ($25) are truly impressive. I love that they have a glossy finish versus the traditional matte look for a liquid lip. The lasting power is truly incredible. Transfer proof and budge proof but you need to let it dry/set. Since it’s ultra pigmented I’d say a little goes a long way. You only need a thin layer to cover the lip. My favorite is Text ‘Em for the perfect pink rose.
New NARS Powermatte Long-Lasting Lipstick
The NARS Powermatte Long-Lasting Lipsticks ($34) are also A+ lip material. They have a more matte almost airbrushed look compared to the Powermatte Lip Pigments. I picked two shades to try in Sweet Disposition (pale pink) and American Woman (dusty rose). They have a smooth weightless texture. A few swipes and your entire lip is covered and on me they did not transfer to my hand or a napkin!
Rouge Dior Forever Transfer-Proof Lipstick
I’ve saved the best (in my opinion) for last. The Dior Rouge Dior Forever Transfer-Proof Lipsticks ($42) are the best transfer-proof lipsticks I’ve tried. I picked 100 Forever Nude Look for my first shade to try and was beyond impressed. It lasted through a cheeseburger meal! The 100 Forever Nude Look pulls a little lighter/cooler than all the other Nude Look lipstick formulas. I found 500 Forever Sensual to be a bit closer in color (another great nude). I also love 200 Forever Nude Touch for a beige and 558 Forever Grace is a lovely berry.
I still love the Dior Rouge Dior Forever Liquid Transfer-Proof Lipsticks. I find the new twist up Rouge Dior Forever Transfer-Proof Lipsticks to be better in terms of lasting power.
