    Here's How Five Different Matte Lipsticks Hold Up All Day Long

    Our lips may have felt dry, but they looked fabulous AF.

    Hi, we're Macey, Sheridan, Lara, Nina, and Greta — and we love lipstick.

    But we REALLY love lipstick that stays on and doesn't let us down. So we decided to try out five different kinds of lipstick for a day and see how they held up.

    The Rules:

    # We all would apply at the same time. (9 a.m.)

    # We would all eat the same thing for lunch to make sure we wouldn't skew results between a hard-to-eat burrito and easy-to-chomp sushi.

    # And we would keep track of how many times we each had to reapply.

    Macey: Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Damned Black Cherry ($20)

    As you can see, Macey's color got all over her keyboard...

    Sheridan: ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip in Limbo ($6)

    Lara: Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Ricco ($24)

    Nina: Kylie Cosmetics in True Brown K ($29)

    Greta: Lashed by Blac Chyna in Haute Cocoa ($11.99)

    Greta's coffee cup couldn't survive her lips.

    Here's how the lipsticks worked:

    Macey (Kat Von D): I would definitely wear this again, and I would definitely recommend it over other products I've tried. Next time I would properly scrub/prime/prep my lips beforehand, but otherwise this was great. I give this lipstick a 9/10.

    Sheridan (ColourPop): Hell yes, I would definitely wear this again. I just have to get used to my lips feeling dry. I wish it were more hydrating, but honestly I've never found a lipstick that stays put as well as this one. I will now be able to go out at night without the worry of smudging, getting that shit on my teeth, and constant touch-ups. Yay! I give this lipstick a 9/10.

    Lara (Stila): I would definitely wear this baby again, because it stayed on like a damn monster. It was insane. Plus I think it looked cool as hell. I give this a 10/10.

    Nina (Kylie Cosmetics): I would definitely wear this again. This formula is legit. Probably because it's secretly ColourPop, wink wink. But nonetheless, it holds up really well throughout the day. Also it smells good, like a Lip Smacker. If you have the cash to drop on this lip kit, it's worth the buy, IMO. I give it an 8/10.

    Greta (Lashed Bar): I would only use this again if I'm in a hurry and I need something simple and easy to apply on my lips. But it won't stay on your lips. If you're not going to eat or drink ANYTHING during the day, like if you were a mannequin, then I'd recommend it. \_(ツ)_/¯ I give this lipstick a 4.5/10.
