1) Fades down evenly
2) Luxurious, moisturizing lip feel
3) Semi-opaque

Nothing worse than a bold lip that fades out to the edge and leaves you with a lipstick “ring” around the edges of the mouth. YUK!

1. Long wearing.
2. Nude, pink, nude pink, light coral.
3. Creamy, smooth, a bit of shine. Matte lipsticks look chalky on me.
4. No glitter.
5. Doesn’t dry and crack my lips.

I’m searching for the perfect pink. Everything I try is either too light/bright/opaque/crazy looking. Plums love me, though. I can pick up any plum and rock it.

Something that feels moisturizing but lasts and has SPF in it. I don’t really care for bold colors, so it would also have to be a pretty, fairly natural-looking shade.

Long-wearing is my absolute #1 requirement. Even some of MAC’s lipsticks last maybe 45 minutes for me. Other than that, opaqueness, easy to apply, even, and not drying. Wow, I’m picky.

It is nice to find something that is not drying – that feels moisturizing on the lips – but that also doesn’t feel greasy and travel and bleed. Combine that with lasting colour and I’m happy. Oh, and I have to agree with “even fading” – I also hate that lipstick ring but if something fades evenly and maybe leaves just a hint of a stain all over the lips, I’m good with that.

It needs to fade evenly. Leaving a ring is a no no. Or it fades and becomes splotchy. It also doesn’t need to fade in an hour without eating or drinking. I also hate lipsticks that are EXTREMELY drying. Yuck! They create flakes and then you have dry lips, flakes and fading lipstick.

Even coverage, fades to a nice, uniform stain and doesn’t dry my lips. Mild to no scent and I especially try to avoid fruity scents.

Long wearing, applies smoothly, i dont hsve to layer on layers just to get that correct coverage. Doesnt dry out my lips. and a formula that doesnt stain. I love wearing red lipsticks but i hate the fact that alot of lipsticks stain on my lips. So im staying away from reds right now unless its a special occasion

* Good coverage
* Staying power
* A smooth and soft feeling on my lips
* Good pigmentation
* No glitter or too much glossiness

Very opaque color, but creamy to apply. Applies evenly and smoothly. The MUFE Rouge Artist Intense usually has my ideal choice for color payoff, but it isn’t as easy to apply as the YSL Rouge Volupte. The MAC satin finish lipsticks are usually the best of both worlds in those aspects, but I find some of them to be a bit drying. I usually prefer shine and gloss over glitter or frost as well. Even though some of the lipsticks I mentioned have their flaws, I still enjoy using them and I can work with what I don’t like 🙂
