You will need coconut oil and a few cotton pads to actually get this off. This range is super long lasting and non-transferrable.

So this lipstick doesn't budge, even when you want to take it off. The colours in the range are great, but a little streaky. So you will need to apply a few layers for them to show. Have a look at this video for a really detailed review on the range.

3. Barry M Lip Paint, £4.99

It's cheap, it comes in 23 great colours and it stays on all day. What more do you need from a lipstick?

4. Sleek MakeUP Matte Me, £4.99

The Sleek Matte Me range is real good shit. Not only is it matte, sans the drying your lips out bit, it also stays on all day. Plus it's under a fiver. Check out this swatch video to see what all the colours look like.

5. NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick, £6.50

So I can't promise this won't dry your lips out a little, but it will stay on all day, even after meals. The range comes in 12 shades and all the colours are stunning.

6. Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm, £7.99

The perfect mix of lip balm and lipstick. The range comes in 14 colours, with seven muted colours and seven dark striking colours. You do have to put a few layers on to really see the colour, and the dark colours tend to stay on longer.

7. Rimmel Kate Moss Matte Lipstick, £5.49

This lipstick will stay on, no matter what. The colours are amazing, especially the Wine shade. It literally glides on your lips and the colour payoff is everything.

8. SEVENTEEN Stay Pout Lipstick, £4.49

This is a great long-wear lip colour with real staying power. It has added shea butter so it leaves your lips soft and moisturised AF.

9. Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color, £8.99

For a matte lipstick it takes a little while to actually become matte, but once it does it's really bloody good. You might need a little top up after about five hours, but that is still good going.

10. Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Reds Collection Lipstick, £9.00

Instagram: @soapandglory

This range comes in two collections, the reds collection and the nudes collection. The red collections has great staying power, the nude not so much. The lipsticks smell like chocolate and have a lovely satin finish.

11. L'Oreal Paris Infallible 24H Lip Colour, £9.99

I don't know about 24 hour wear, but it stays on until you are ready to take it off. It has a lovely conditioning balm that prevents that sticky transfer you get with most lipgloss.
