10 Long-Lasting Lipsticks To Stay Pout Perfect


    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.

    Sugar Matte As Hell Crayon

    Matte As Hell Crayon

    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.

    The Body Shop Liquid Lipstick

    Matte Liquid Lipstick

    It was love at first sight for us when we applied Matte Lip Liquid 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.

    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.

    Chambor Extreme Wear Transfer Proof Liquid Lipstick

    Chambor Extreme Wear Transferproof Liquid Lipstick

    The Extreme Wear Transferproof Liquid Lipstick is the best thing to happen to us of 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 their Rouge Grenadine.

    Colorbar Matte Touch Lipstick

    Colorbar Matte Touch Lipstick Walnut

    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 online. And if you want to go really dark with your lipcolour, try their Walnut Brown shade.

    Maybelline Super Stay Matte Lip Ink

    Maybelline New York Superstay Matte Lip Ink

    One of the brands that understand the Indian skin tone is Maybelline. They have liquid lip that stays on for 24 hours and is one of the most budge-proof drugstore brands we have come across. It assured no crumbling, caking, fading, feathering and transferring. We're big fans of the shade Amazonian.

    CAL Los Angeles Intense Matte Lipstick

    Intense Matte Lipstick - Rich Orchid

    Intense Matte Lipstick - Rich Orchid


    CAL Los Angeles is a make-up label that's all Indian and gives us a chance to support local brands without compromising on our look. If you love a matte finish but find liquid lips a bit too drying or a pain to apply just right, try these matte bullet lipsticks instead.

    Sonanaturals Vegan Matte Finish Lipstick

    Vegan Matte Finish Lipstick MUDITA-Nude Coffee

    Vegan Matte Finish Lipstick MUDITA-Nude Coffee


    If you're looking to make the switch to a vegan and cruelty-free brand, then check out Sonanaturals. This classic bullet lipstick is pigmented but moisturising, enriched with shea butter and vitamin E. We're fans of the bamboo packaging and for a bullet lipstick, this one wears well.

    Tinge Matte Liquid Lip

    Louder Liquid Matte Lipsticks - Set of 3

    Louder Liquid Matte Lipsticks - Set of 3


    Makeup artist Sabrina Suhail's bespoke brand Tinge makes lip colours in popping shades that we love. Plus as an added bonus, they're vegan and created specifically to suit Indian skin. Pretty cool, right? If you want an intro into the collection, they've got a set of 3 minis that do the job just right!

    CAL Los Angeles Matte Liquid Lipstick

    Matte Liquid Lipstick - Weekend Coral

    Matte Liquid Lipstick - Weekend Coral


    Another pick from CAL Los Angeles, this one is for those of you who prefer a liquid lip. Their shade range has plenty of bright hues and we love the summer-ready bright colours, especially the Wicked Coral to cheer up a drab mood.
