Seventeen Stay Pout Lipstick: Infared

Never before has my lipstick lasted so long that I've woken up the next day with stained lips. 

For a cheap drug store brand, I was very surprised to see how good the lipstick actually was. I don't really wear lipstick that often, despite my large collection. I only really wear it on nights out or for special occasions as the main shades I have are very bright and striking; reds, hot pinks etc, but I really want to start wearing them more often. It makes me feel more grown up!

So often, Boots has a 3 for 2 offer on make up, and lipsticks are the first product I go to, as you never know what hidden gem you might find.. This Seventeen lipstick is a prime example.

Seventeen Stay Pout Infared Lip Colour is one of those rare finds that restores my faith in high street make up brands. When it says stay pout (stay put) they really mean it. I wore this colour last weekend on a night out.. That for me, is the ultimate test - various drinks, trips to the toilet mirror, drink again, and then chips on the way home, if it's still perfect when you get home again. It's a winner. I've given up on many a lip colour for this reason. They just didn't last that long!

This lipstick however, despite wiping as much off as I could when I got home that night, my lips were still very red. If you've ever slept in make up before, you'd know how you wake up with it either smeared everywhere or its all over your pillow instead of your face.

In the morning, I woke up, my pillow was still white and when I looked in the mirror, the lipstick was still stained on my lips and JUST on my lips, not smeared up my cheek or over my chin like it normally would. 

 These photos obviously show the lipstick as different shades, however they were taken with different light sources. The bottom one may be a little more accurate.

I'm definitely going to buy more in this range now I know what their staying power is really like!

Have you tried this range of lipsticks? Do you know of any others that last that long?
