depending on the coverage, anywhere from 2-4 hours before I have to reapply. I find that quality has a real impact for me….the cheaper it is, the less wear I get.

Depends on what kind of lipstick. Typically I can get 5-7 hours if it is not a lustre/cremesheen

It does wear off a bit, but not to the point where it is extremely noticeable.

2h maximum ( this includes also long-wearing formulas). glossy moisturizing lipsticks like shiseido rouge perfect stay on my lips for about 30mins. no lipliner or base can change that

Hmmm… about 2-4 hours depending on if I am not drinking or eating, then it less than 3 hours. Personally, I think the claim of long-lasting lipstick is just a marketing gimmick, and if I like I lippie, I will re-apply it when necessary for I want my lipstick to look fresh.

You know, it depends on the color. MAC’s Show Orchid tends to last several hours on me, only needing a slight touch up. Morgana Cryptoria’s Azalea Blue lasts 10 hours, but again, it will need a slight touch up or a balm to go over it.

it depents on the brand… i think tree hours… most of the time i use very creamy lipsticks and i have a feeling that the doesn’t stay on that long.

It all depends on the color. Reds stain my lips and remain on for about 3 hours. Darker shads remain longer … average would be around and hour and a half. Not long enough!

Wow! I’m surprised how many people are saying how little wear they get. I thought I was the only one with this problem.

I get max. 1 hour wear but it feels like even less :s.
I’m always biting or rubbing my lips together or eat/drinking when I go out. And I don’t wear lipstick to work/class.
