This month's box is all about having fun this Valentine's day. Whether you are heading out on a hot date or a 'Galentine’s' night out in the month of love, there is one thing you need – a lipstick that won’t budge. Luckily, more and more brands are coming through to save the day with their long-lasting formula’s. We’ve chosen some of the best lipsticks, with a great three step method, to keep your lips bold with colour day and night.

Prime Your Lips

Lip Insurance Lip Primer by Too Faced, £14.50

Using long wear lipstick 24/7 does have a reputation of leaving your lips a tad dry. To keep lips hydrated, we’d recommend using Lip Insurance Primer by Too Faced. Created to promote suppleness and lock in lip colour so it will not fade or transfer, coat your lips with this primer whilst you complete the rest of your makeup and your perfect pout will stay intact.

Line Your Lips

MAC Pro Longwear Lip Pencil, £15.50

It’s perfect when you find a lip liner that matches your favourite shade. But a long lasting liner that is closer to your natural lip colour can disguise an uneven lip line when colour transfers onto your glass of wine. MAC Cosmetics Longwear Lip Pencil is a new generation of lip pencil technology that saturates lips in a rich colour of your choice.

Steve Laurant Nude Pop Lip Tint, $22

Featured in this month's GLOSSYBOX, Steve Laurant's lip tint is the perfect creamy texture to apply to your lips for a hint of colour with its high pigmentation. This cruelty-free brand pride's itself in being long lasting whilst light weight. Our favourite shade is 'Nude Pop' but there are 3 more shades to choose from.

Add Colour!

Kylie Cosmetics Matte Lip Kit, $29

Kylie Cosmetics Matte Lip Kits are an absolute god send to achieve long lasting lips. The 2 piece set of Liquid Lipstick and Lip Liner are a force to be reckoned with - whether you’re working all day or out all night. The Lip Kits come in a wide variety of colours for you Glossies, but Kylie’s famous favourite is ‘Ginger’.
