Product: Too Faced Melted in Ruby ($21)

Wore it for: Nine hours

The test: Ate as many hors d’oeuvres as I could get my hands on, drank, kissed cheeks extensively, and sweat at a wedding

Bottom line: The felt-tip applicator of this lipstick delivers the shade in a stain-like finish, which didn’t kiss-off onto wedding guests or dancing partners. I really put this color to the test and after nine hours it was holding on fairly well. But truth be told if I hadn’t been so busy dancing to the Hora, I probably would have reapplied.


Product: Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Almafi ($24)

Wore it for: Nine hours

The test: Ate brunch, including tea, orange juice, and water, worked out, and ate an apple

Bottom line: It’s not especially moisturizing, but the formula literally didn’t budge all day. The bright pink didn’t fade at all during my spinning class (which is more than I can say for myself) and passed the apple test by remaining on my lips, rather than coming off on the skin of the fruit.
