Review: Editor-approved long-wear lipsticks

Hot pink, shocking orange and bright berry—this season anything goes with lipstick as long as it makes a statement—also, it's gotta have some serious staying power.  The beauty department has tested hundreds of lipsticks and narrowed it down to our top three fave formulas—and colours—for the summer months. Makeupforever One of the easiest ways to update your style is by trying on one of the seasons biggest beauty trends, a bold lip. I adore this non-stop liquid lipstick because of its variety of bright colours, intense pigment and a smudg-proof formula that just won't quit! A few years ago, I learned that this product was tested on the Parisian Aquatic Ballet to make sure it was waterproof. Another benefit is that it gives you the option of two finishes; matte and velvety or  eye-catching shine, with the addition of the gloss. - Julia McEwen, Fashion & Beauty Director Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouge in 19, 16, 20, 17 and 18, $29 each, sephora.ca.

Matte lips that are creamy instead of flakey? Yes, please! I love the velvety texture of Bite Beauty's lipsticks in chubby pencil form. They draw a smooth, even line (perfect for tracing the outer edges) that lasts throughout the day—plus they're super easy to use on the go. Each pencil contains resveratrol, which helps fight the free radicals that cause skin damage and aging. Shades range from feminine pinks to high-impact berries, reds and oranges. –Andrea Karr, Associate Fashion & Beauty Editor

Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in Pomegranate, Zinfandel and Velvet, $28, sephora.ca.

stila Hands down my all time favourite lip product. It might even take the cake for being my "desert island" beauty pick, next to SPF—of course! It goes on creamy and hugs lips with intense pigment that gives your look a strong statement. The Stila website says that it stays for up to six hours of continuos wear, however it's wrong. I can wear it, with no touchups, from morning to evening and the colour rich formula never bleeds or transfers. It get's 10 out of 10 from this editor.  - Julia McEwen, Fashion & Beauty Director Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Aria, Tesoro, Como and Fiery, $29, sephora.ca.
