Hello. My wedding is in a month and I am wondering which lipsticks you went with for your wedding.

I had a makeup trial and took engagement pics. The lip color I had on was custom made by my makeup artist but after taking so many pictures (including pictures of us kissing) my lipstick wore off.

I would love to hear suggestions of lipstick brands or even colors that was used in weddings that didn't transfer.

I'm Chinese and we have a tradition where every time someone taps on glass the couple has to kiss. Our group of friends are notorious for doing that at weddings so I want to prepare to make sure my lipstick won't fade too easily or transfer to my FH's lips Smiley laugh

    I use a a local Nashville brand so not sure the comparable

    It's cake style. Full coverage. Mac makes one similar.

    I definitely avoid watery /light concealer. It just runs off or soaks in.

    Honestly I use the same concealer as my favorite drag queen. Lol. She is stunning, so I took some notes on products. Strange as it sounds.

    I included my brand and mac brand that seems pretty comparable

    Oh I always wondered how Mac concealers worked! I'll probably try the concealers I already have (I actually have 3) and see if any of those work. Luckily I still have about a month to decide lol.

    The ones I have are creamy though except Tarte Shape Tape. But it tends to get drying especially on my under eyes. Plus I feel like with the oils on my face it tends to cake up at the end of the day and I'm scared it will do the same for my lips.


    Have you ever used setting powder on your lips? I also heard some people do this lol.

    Yes I've tried it before but both long wear lipsticks are matte finish which is what setting powder usually accomplishes.

    It tends to settle into cracks and on lips... tons of cracks.

    The stila lipstick has been the best for me. Girl it took a full makeup wipe both sides to get it off - AFTER wearing it all day, eating, drinking, kissing.... lol it's legit

    Wow that sounds awesome haha. Maybe not for everyday wear for me since I'm very minimal but for events that sounds great. I feel a bit weird having to walk to the restroom or pull out a mirror just to touch up lipstick. So I really want a lipstick that will STAY on all day Smiley smile.

    I just bought elf liquid matte lipstick and it didn't transfer! I wore it to a wedding a month ago and it stayed on. I was surprised. Make sure your lips are hydrated and exfoliated before you use it though

    I've had good luck with Revlon Colorstay, however, they are somewhat limited on the colors they offer. Good luck, I hope you find an amazing product that lasts all day and is the color you want.

    NARS Powermatte lip pigment doesn't go anywhere! Also, Maybelline Superstay 24 hour liquid lipstick.

    Just realized you said you already tried NARS and it didn't work for you! That's a bummer. I will second Misty in saying that Stila is also a very good option. Smiley smile

    Its okay its a long thread, its easy to miss lol. Yeah i really loved the color and that it didnt look cakey but for some reason it transferred easily even though I waiting about 15-20 min Smiley sad.

    I will most likely try Stila next Smiley smile

    Have any of you guys tried or liked Too Faced Peach Puff long-wearing diffused matte lip color? I really like the colors in this line, not sure about its staying power with eating.

    You could use a lipstain instead, it will last longer. Bring it with you and just continue to touch it up every so often. My lipstick wears off in 2 seconds so I'll just have to reaplly a million times lol.

    Avon’s lipstick is notorious for washing away quickly, but they just made a 2-1 lip tattoo and it works SO WELL

    Instead of a regular lipstick, have you considered trying a lip stain instead? You'll get the color and the longevity without the mess. I'm not sure how many times you may need to reapply or how long after the big day before the colors wears off completely. But it's an option
