Brides (I suppose I mean girls, but I'm surrounded by friends who are going to be brides lately) who want to sport a red lip, consider investing in the new full coverage Paul & Joe Lipstick (see here for the entire line). It is the longest wearing red lipstick I've ever tried – eight hours and going with no food and drink, no fading whatsoever – that actually feels moisturizing.
The components of the new lipsticks are sold separately, so you can choose to purchase a holder or have them in just bullets. While I think the latter's possible (they include a dubious-looking plastic cap thing), I suppose it's not encouraged.
When attached, the bullet wobbles around a little, but not enough to make me think it's not secure.
In this post I am wearing the Lipstick Refill in #304, a blue pink-leaning red. Trust me when I say it stains as long as it wears. I wore it last night and tried to take it off with the oil cleansing method, followed by the regular makeup remover method, and finally just rubbing with a napkin, then promptly gave up. This morning my lips are still slightly stained. But for a lipstick that will last through an important event without feathering and bleeding? I guess it's worth it.
