8 Long-Lasting Lipsticks Perfect For The Summer

Nupur posted on 27 April

We’ve all been there – from opening your front camera to going to the washroom to check up on the lipstick. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could skip it all and keep looking fabulous the entire day? We spoke to a few Mumbai women and asked them about their favourite lipsticks that stand the test of time (food, drinks and talking) through the day.


Affordable and effective, that’s how we’d describe Sugar Lipsticks. Their Matte As Hell Crayons work very well with Mumbai’s weather. They do not chap your lips and keep the pigment in place. Priced at INR 799, you can buy them here.

The Body Shop

It was love at first sight for us when we applied Matte Lip Liquid (Cyprus Begonia 018 is our favourite) one fine morning before heading to work. And boy, did it last or what?! We went from pani puri to pizza, and it stayed. Highly recommended for people who like bang for the buck makeup. Priced at INR 670. Get it here.


With its ever-growing popularity and fan base in India, HUDA cashed in on the whole liquid matte lipstick craze with its range of million colour options. With 27 shades under its belt, the range has garnered rave reviews for its long-lasting and no-transfer properties. Our favourite shade? Vixen, available at INR 1,650 here.


The Extreme Wear Transferproof Liquid Lipstick is the best thing to happen to us off late. It glides easily and stays intact until the end of the day without us going to the ladies’ room to check up on it. You can totally pull off a summery look with this shade, all for INR 845.


Masaba collaborated with Lakme to create a quirky range of matte crayons and they look like something straight out of a summer catalogue. Choose from a cola-like shade or a cotton candy-like tint for your collection. You can browse the collection here.

Colorbar Matte

If you’re looking to buy something a little more popular, pick up the Colorbar Matte Touch lipstick. With various hues of red, pink and violet, the collection will ensure you have that extra edge over the others. You can check out the entire collection here.

L'oreal La Vie En Rose

The long lasting range stays intact for over 4-5 hours, with just one touch up needed if you want the colour to remain fresh. If you do not want to go the matte way, this is the collection you should be hoarding on.

Maybelline Super Stay

One of the brands that understands the Indian skin tone is Maybelline. They have a 2-step lipstick that (one side has the pigment and the other lip balm) stays on for 24 hours. It assured no crumbling, caking, fading, feathering and transferring. Check out the collection here.
